There were more than a thousand pictures taken of it from space, a hundred times that many from the ground. Some speculated that it was God, some the Devil. Some even thought that it was an alien life form from another planet. It was, in fact, a cloud. It was in the shape of a man’s face. It traveled the length of the country keeping its shape perfectly. It moved slowly, taking the entire day to complete its nationwide trek.
News helicopters kept a continuous feed piped to every television in the world. By late morning, the military and local authorities kept the news reporters at a safe distance, but the cloud was so big and so high up they couldn’t stop the broadcasts. People either huddled in their homes terrified or clogged the streets gawking as it passed their towns and cities.
