I took this photo today up near San Francisco on the east side of the bay. The Golden Gate Bridge is to the right of where the photo was taken. I took it because of how the sky looked. It is somethng I call the "Hand of God" because that is how it is depicted in paintings. Ironically we saw one of these just after my dad passed away nine years ago. We had my mom's funeral yesterday (she was nearly 90) and I just think of this as her way of saying goodbye. Hope you don't mind me sharing. She was a great lady and we all miss her. I have NO idea what the angel sign means and I have never seen one before.
On some scrrens the angel sign at the bottom doesn't show up well, it is a black stencil of a walking angel on a yellow background. This was taken from a moving car (my husband bought me a lovely camera, but won't stop for photos) and all I was focusing on was the light in the clouds. I didn't notice anything else until I downloaded it.

A very strange sign in the sky. Perhaps it was you mom saying good bye...

For those of you who can't see it (some screens it shows, other it is black), the rectangular thing at the bottom is a yellow sign with a picture of an angel on it, like a traffic marker.
The other strange thing that has happened was when my son first drove back into the valley for the first time after she passed, he saw his first shooting star. He always mentioned he wanted to see one, so I guess Gramma sent it for him.

I didn't notice the angel the first time I saw the picture. But now I see it. Even more strange!
And the shooting star was a lovely sign too.
