Residents took photographs of the rare sky phenomenon just before the ‘hand’ fell apart.
Several residents posted the curious picture on social networks, whereby one resident said “Look how beautiful, the hand of God is always stretched out for us”.
Interestingly, these days the sky of this Brazil region was without clouds and very clear.
Many residents were very impressed by the mysterious phenomenon in the sky. Some even thought that this hand was a sign from the divine.
“I really hope that this hand does not mark the beginning of any war or tragedy”, one resident of Asunción wrote.
