'Apocalyptic' Cloud Appears over Brazil
Residents of the Brazilian city of Teixeira de Freitas were surprised on August 17th to see a cloud that appeared to be the trail of an earth-ending celestial object overhead.
Eyewitness João Paulo Magalhães took footage of the "very unusual" cloud formation, which only lasted about four minutes; although local residents were concerned it could form a tornado.
“It really looked like the entrance to a meteorite or something,” said Magalhães.
Other residents posted their own perspectives of the phenomenon to social media.
