Cory Hearn captured on camera the rare weather phenomenon, which appears in the shape of an angel with its wings spread wide. Speaking on the footage, Cory says: "Check that out. Is that not an angel or what? Nobody would believe me if I didn't do this live, but I want you to look at this cloud in the sky. I don't know that I've ever seen with my own two eyes this type of cloud. Isn't it amazing? I'm seeing an angel, I don't know if anybody sees anything different."
He later told People that it was the most amazing thing he'd ever seen in his life. "This couldn't have come at a better time and other people seem to agree."
It’s not often an angel is spotted in the sky, but a curious onlooker managed to capture what turned out to be a cloud shape of a guardian on Facebook Live. Cory Hearon filmed the cloud in Camden, South Carolina, and the live stream has now been viewed more than 7 million times.

Last week, the Camden, South Carolina, father of three was in his car when he looked to his left and saw an angel-like cloud formation that left him awestruck. “It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Hearon, 37, tells PEOPLE. “I was in shock for the first two minutes, and I thought I better get a video of this so there won’t be any question or doubt about what I saw,” he says.
Hearon, who says he watched the cloud for 45 minutes before it started to dissipate, posted a Facebook Live video that has received millions of views. “Look at this cloud in the sky. Is that not an angel or what?” he says in the video. “This is blowing my mind.”
