    In the writeup of this photo no one has mentioned the eyes in the sky. The clouds even form a cat’s face that is about right for the position of the eyes. I saw the eyes just about the same time as I saw the rainbow and well before I found the lightning. It looks like the eyes are rolled as if to look up and to the right side pos the photo
