Watch: Eerie 'Angel' Filmed in Brazil

A weird piece of footage purportedly filmed in Brazil shows an eerie aerial anomaly that some have likened to an angel hovering in the sky. As is often the case with such fantastic scenes, the origins of the video are murky at best. It reportedly first appeared on a paranormal-themed Facebook page earlier this month billed only as simply a "strange sighting in Brazil" and subsequently wound up circulating on YouTube this week.

In the video, a puzzling white form, for lack of a better term, can be seen wafting through the sky amid some dark clouds. The oddity appears to change shape multiple times, occasionally resembling an angel with outstretched arms or a dragon flying through the air. Unfortunately, with little information concerning where and when the footage was filmed nor any insights from the witness, we're left simply to wonder what the anomaly could have been.

As one can imagine, some observers have speculated that the oddity was an angelic being or an alien craft. A slightly less fantastic hypothesis put forward by other viewers is that the mysterious formation is some kind of plasma akin to ball lightning that was generated from the storm around it. And, of course, skeptics are apt to say that the 'angel' is merely a trick of light and shadow or, failing that, a hoax. What's your take on the odd video?
