The Cloud Giant was a bizarre humanoid figure photographed in January of 2016 by an Irish software support team manager named Nick O'Donoghue. Flying to Gatwick, England, from a ski trip in Austria, the 30-year-old plane passenger captured the bizarre image at 30,000 feet.

AppearanceEdit

The entity resembles an enormous humanoid figure walking on the clouds.

Possible ExplanationsEdit

There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:

  • A giant robot
  • Smokestack plumes from a factory below
  • Optical illusion/weird cloud formation

Notable EncountersEdit

I was flying back from a work ski trip in Austria, I was on the window seat with two work colleges beside me. They were talking like crazy and I was gazing out the window, as you do. I could see this figure in the distance in front of us and then as we flew closer this shape appeared. I asked the ladies beside me to look at it too in case I was seeing things. They too were amazed! I then took some pictures and then the aircraft slowly passed it. It was in view for about two minutes as it was a good bit away in the distance. To me it looked like the Michelin man but to be honest I have no idea what it was. Some comments online said it was smoke stacks below and the heat from them pushed up the layer of clouds, but I don't think so as they looked very close together. Probably just a funky cloud formation but I'd love for someone who knows about clouds to see it and try and explain. - Nick O'Donoghue [sic] (dailymail.co.uk)

TriviaEdit

  • Many people on various forums claimed that the creature heavily resembled the titular robot with the 1999 animated science-fiction film The Iron Giant, while Nick O'Donoghue himself believes that it resembles Bibendum, the mascot of the Michelin tire company.
