Viral Storm Pic Includes Doctored Image Of IRON MAIDEN’s ‘Brave New World’ Album Cover

Iron Maiden fans immediately recognized this photo that went viral online.

A recent image that has been making the rounds on social media showing a skull face in the clouds during the recent storms in Arkansas is actually a doctored picture of an IRON MAIDEN album cover and a photo of a 2019 storm in Pennsylvania according to USA Today.

A December 10 Facebook post of the photo was accompanied by a caption which stated: “my sister took a picture of this today in lake village Arkansas while I was fixing her roof. look at the detail of this picture. if u turn the picture upside down and zoom in on it you’ll see Jesus in the middle with his arms wide open.. people if this is not a good enough sign then y’all better get right with the lord… it’s so crazy how he gives us signs but we’re to blind to see…”

The same photo was previously posted on social media in June 2019 by an individual  claiming it was “a real picture taken in California” with “no edit”.

USA Today clarified that the skull face in the image is actually from the album cover for IRON MAIDEN’s “Brave New World” while the image of the clouds during a storm was taken from the web site of Pennsylvania’s The Patriot-News, from a May 2019 storm over Kutztown University.

Still looks pretty cool though.
