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.”

    @ 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.

  12. little killer says:

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

  13. Gnom says:

    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

  15. otowi says:

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

  16. otowi says:

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

  17. josh says:

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

  18. Vandigo says:

    Pun not intended. ^^’

    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.

    #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.

  33. Sarah says:

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

  34. Purple Cow says:

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

  35. Estelle says:

  36. CC says:
