Reader who goes by initials Luz T.M. sent me this. The effect probably wouldn’t be so effective without it’s original title. Only when I saw the title of his email (same title this article has), was I able to see the illusion. And I think it’s great! Can you see the devil hiding behind the cloud? I definitely can! In fact, now I can’t stop seeing him. Am I possessed? Sure hope not! Another thing that I noticed: is that sun eclipse we are seeing that gives devil horns effect, or is it rather a Moon? In my opinion it couldn’t be so big and evil Moon. Or could it? Well let me grab a sandwich, and we can have a discussion through comments. If you want to see some more devil appearances, be sure to check WTC Devil, as well as Aphex Twin’s Devil optical illusion. This photo was originally taken by Peter Wienerroither, visit his page for more cool photos! Peter said: “It was an eclipse of the sun in May 2003, photographed near Vienna/Austria. And this glorious moment didn’t have anything devilish – quite the contrary was true.”

    Descartes, anyone?

  • cassie

    That is really strange, and yet totally awesome. I would hate to see that over my house! It has kind of made me feel creeped out.

    @ courtney:
    don’t worry about them, they’re just jealous because they haven’t been first before and they woke up really early this morning to try and get first but couldn’t.
    The picture’s really cool btw

  • little killer

    Thats really funny!!!!!!!! Why are people geting scaired!? And im winning!!! now your in 2nd!

  • Gnom

    I don’t think it can be a moon we’re seeing, because the very warm color comes from the fact the light is going through more atmoshpere than usual… It also lessens the light intensity (ever noticed you could look at the sun when it’s going down ?), so I don’t think a moonlight would make it down to the ground…
    Partial solar eclips I’d say…

    you’re realy a bitch/SOB she was prob just saying it she prob dosn’t care that much that she is first. and wtf does “will you get a price?” mean?

    –o and i don’t see the devil i only see the horns

  • otowi

    Hmm, my vote would be for a moon, with the sun close behind (just before sunrise)

  • otowi

    p.s. I think the moon looks too big because it is probably an image taken through a binocular lens.

  • josh

    hey maybe im confused, BUT… if the moon was in front of the sun, wouldnt that make an eclipse anyway?
    cool pic, btw

  • Vandigo

    Oh holy hell thats just awesome.

    Pun not intended. ^^’

  • Elliexx ANIMALS ROCK!!

    thats really kl!!!! i love that colour red as well!

  • Anonymous

    It is a cool picture I agree. But what is with all the whinny people who are making front of the girl who is first? Everyone needs to get a life you cranky bastards.. LOL And what is there to be scared of? This is a picture only, not the Devil him/herself? Being gender correct thats all. LOL

  • Anonymous

    It is sun in front of the moon!
    The moon in front of the sun is not possible because it would be to much light allready- you would need special glasses to watch it.

  • Anonymous

    #32, It isn’t the sun in front of the moon, the object in front is dark and, as I hope you’ve noticed, the sun is quite bright. It looks pretty clearly like a solar eclipse where the moon is passing in front of the sun making the crescent shape. And you should wear special glasses to view a solar eclipse, but that doesn’t mean you can’t photograph one.

  • Sarah

    OMG that’s really good! It totally looks like the devil is peeking from behind the clouds! AWESOMENESS!

  • Purple Cow

    Omg that is awesome, I would love to see that in person!

  • Estelle

    Am I just imagining the eye and snout impressions in the clouds, or can someone else see them too?

  • CC

  • ria

    i actually thot they were eyes, not horns, i wuz reading dracula and it reminded me of something they said about red eyes in the sunset. really good tho!

  • Mysterieo The Illusionist
