The awe-inspiring snaps have since been shared online after Rogerio opted to post them on his blog. Amazed onlookers have compared the bright orange cloud to everything from a flaming fist of fury to the iconic comet featured in the classic video game Final Fantasy VII.
Rogerio said: "As soon as I saw the sky, I was immediately intrigued and I just had to grab my camera to take a photo. For me, the cloud looks like an outstretched hand with a fireball. I was not the only one who seemed to notice it and I could see other people also looking up at the sky. A lot of people seemed pleasantly surprised when they looked up at the sky and saw the cloud."
