A driver who filmed an incredible scene on his cell phone of a strange cloud shaped like a hand.

The cloud was spotted above Michoac√°n, in central Mexico, earlier this month.

Some on social media suggest it was "the hand of God" and a "sign from above".

The cloud was actually a lenticular cloud, which is around a kilometre in length.

Lenticular clouds are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form in the troposphere, normally in perpendicular alignment to the wind direction.
