My first intention was to show you this impossible staircase, where two people are climbing it in opposite directions. What struck me, I viewed this image from another angle, and as I moved my eyes arround it, I got impression the clouds are really moving! Maybe I’m going nuts from all of these illusions I see every day, but maybe, just maybe I could be right? Can you post your thoughts? Thank you…

  29. kristen says:

  30. The E-freak says:

    Cant see the clouds moving either. Why scould they move?!?

  31. BurninRubber says:

    Holy …. THEY’RE MOVING!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! (why is that so scary?)

  32. Pandas says:

    HHHHMMMMMMM. no clue why it’s so scary cause THEY’RE NOT MOVING. all you people that think they are have probably been looking at too many illusions. sry. As for the impossible staircase, one person is going up, the other going down. no clue what is so impossible

  33. Brittanyx3s_yooh says:

    I’m getting a headache from all these illusions i dont think I can look at another one!!!

  34. Its Me says:

    Yo dude, i think its all the other illusions getting to us!!! I see them move, but my bro don’t, and he’s usually the right one of us!!!

  35. Yup<3 says:

  37. Detlef und Wesselsky says:

  38. Anonymous says:

    Not an impossible staircase, kuz I couldn’t see either of her feet. But I could see both of her tits! Hubba Hubba!!

  39. Anonymous says:

    Sorry but I do not see any clouds either!

  40. Joe says:

    We can’t see the clouds moving because the shadows on them are natural, and therefore I brains perceive them as being natural. Use photoshop to invert half of the clouds… and THEN we’ll see what happens

  41. Olav says:

    If you indeed view it from a slight left or right of your monitor you get the feeling the clouds are moving… They may or may not but I get the feeling they are…

  42. Anonymous says:

    easy just stand back about 2 meters…. view it from your left or right of your monitor you’ll see it move slightly :)

  43. Anonymous says:

    i want what ever your on ?? there are no moveing clouds look again lol.

  44. Anonymous says:

    move to the right of your moniter and look at the picture… then they move… well it worked for me..

  45. michelle says:

    the clouds appear to be moving only because clouds move very slow. if your stareing at the clouds and think it, it will look like it. but other than that, they aren’t moving.

    cool illusion tho! love the site!

    Sorry but I don’t see any clouds moving. You’re going nuts.

    P.S. The Gold ones feet arn’t on the stairs and the silver one looks like he is walking down; Not up in an opposite direction.

  47. danielle says:

    yea the clouds are moving!

  48. Joost says:

    I see them moving allright, but prolly because i move my head :P

  49. Anonymous says:

  50. Anonymous says:

    your not crazy,i see the moving clouds too. hold your left hand over your right eye take 12 steps back and tilt your head to the left in a 90 degree angle, and the clouds will start to move to the right.try it yourself

  51. egorych says:

    That’s incredible! These clouds really move! Fantastic!

  52. Katarina says:

    I saw the clouds moving, too.You’re not nut, or maybe we both are nut.You see it when you don’t look it very “well”. Look around the picture, don’t focuse on one place.

  55. Rina says:

    But only for about 2 seconds.
    I was moving to the side of the screen then saw it. Heh.

  56. Anonymous says:

  57. get a life farted says:

    this should go into the impossible objects category

    P.s does the word ‘gory’ come from category

    PP.s get a life farted

    PPP.s well i forgot what i was going to say

  58. Cozmik says:

    I tried looking at the picture from an angle and the clouds seemed to move a little. It may have been because I wanted them to move, but it still gives a good feeling of being up in the air.

  60. Am says:

  61. Anonymous says:

    thats awsome!
    I am in 7th grade and I am doing a report on optical illusions, so I am having a TON of fun looking at all of them and making my head hurt!
    But I was wondering if the clouds in the sky, the ones that move, if they count as optical illusions?

  69. anonimni says:

  70. Nastya says:

    It’s a .JPEG image! .JPEG images can’t move. Problem solved. :P

  71. Artist says:

    I have followed everyone’s suggestions but still see no moving clouds… really want to experience this, any other suggestions???

  72. mR says:

    still see no moving clouds…

  73. Scottie says:

    The thing is i think that the pic is messed with but in real life i can move the clouds from one side the sky to another… I mean i can take a cloud and split i in half and move it 90 degree around…. i think im the crazy on i have many diffrent things i can do…

  74. Abob says:

    It isnt an impossible object.
    Simple theory: we only see one side, right? What if the other set of stairs was tilted and smaller than the other set so they can’t be seen?

  75. alice says:

    it’s really cool!!! just don’t concentrate on any thing in the picture, and your brain begins to think that they are moving!!!!!

  76. Torbjørn Sørheim says:

    Sorry, I can`t see any movement. So, probably you`r going nuts.

  77. says says:

    Yup, he’s nuts

  79. karnivorekidd says:

    Yes, i see the moving clouds too. If you look at the man or woman hard enougth it will show. But it takes some practice.

Speak Your Mind

You can add some images too.
