«It looked like Armageddon» said Jane Wiggins, a paralegal and amateur photographer in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
This June 20, 2006 photo provided on Monday, June 8, 2009 and taken by Jane Wiggins from a downtown Cedar Rapids, Iowa office building shows what may become the first new cloud type to be recognized by scientists since 1951.
Looking out the 11th floor window of her law office, Jane Wiggins did a double take and grabbed her camera. The dark, undulating clouds hovering outside were unlike anything she’d seen before.
«It looked like Armageddon» said Wiggins, a paralegal and amateur photographer in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “The shadows of the clouds, the lights and the darks, and the greenish-yellow backdrop. They seemed to change.
They dissipated within 15 minutes, but the photo Wiggins captured in June 2006 intrigued – and stumped – a group of dedicated weather watchers who now are pushing weather authorities to create a new cloud category, something that hasn’t been done since 1951.
Some scientists are skeptical. They argue that researchers who have long watched the sky haven’t seen anything distinctly new for decades. There are three main groups of clouds: cumulous, cirrus and stratus. Each has various sub-classifications built on other details of the formation.

It do not have any knowledge about clouds. But I took notice of this press report, because this lady said:
«It looked like Armageddon».
Armageddon is a field in Israel, where the New Testament of the Bible says one of the last battles on Earth will take place. The God of the Bible will finally send his Messiah to fight against all the nations that have jointly come to destroy the Jewish people, and the city of Jerusalem.
The Bible also speaks about signs from Heaven, just before the return of the Messiah.
I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
The last antichrist will even be allowed to call down fire from Heaven. No one has done this, since the day of the dedication of the First Temple in Jerusalem during the reign of the great Jewish King Solomon. Also the Jewish prophet Elijah called down fire from Heaven.
Behold, this is what the Jewish Apostle John writes about the powers that will be given to antichrist:
And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men.
The Jewish Messiah Jesus said that He would come back in the clouds of Heaven:
«At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory».
Well. Its time to take a Heavenly perspective on things.
