Crucifixion Darkness Comes To Tampa Bay On Good Friday In Form Of Shelf Clouds, People Look To Return Of Jesus And Aliens Easter Weekend

Did the crucifixion darkness described in the Bible as occurring at the time Jesus Christ was crucified come to Tampa Bay on Good Friday? The question has many in the area wondering as sudden and strange cloud formations were seen across Tampa Bay, stretching from Clearwater to Tampa suburbs Friday afternoon between 12 p.m. ET and 3 p.m. ET. The experience has prompted many to question whether the shelf clouds, sudden rainstorm and darkness that set upon the city for approximately three hours, had supernatural origins. Some people stated they thought aliens had landed and the cloud formation appeared as a giant UFO, while others said they believed the world had come to an end; Jesus was appearing for the rapture and the apocalypse had begun. The timing of the storm hasn’t been without notice, either.

Check out some of the photos and videos users shared on social media networks, such as Twitter, showing the arrival of the ominous shelf clouds across Tampa Bay on Good Friday. (Please be patient as the photos download as there are many.)

The fact that the storm suddenly arose during the hours of Good Friday left many to the conclusion that God was delivering supernatural messages in the skies. Over on the Facebook page Fox 13 Tampa Bay, the conversations surrounding the shelf cloud and appearance of darkness along with sudden storms and the feelings of doom and apocalypse that many experienced have lasted throughout the night.

Some Facebook comments point to God’s displeasure with mankind, that the end of time may be approaching, and how some believed the clouds looked like alien space craft. Many long-time Tampa Bay residents quickly stated they had never seen clouds like this before while others pointed out that it is a common occurrence to see shelf clouds in Florida.

Crucifixion darkness is described in the Bible as occurring between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. and is stated as being the time Jesus Christ died on the cross. It is described in Mark 15:33 and modern day translations state the time as being from noon to 3 p.m.

“When it was noon, darkness came over the whole land[a] until three in the afternoon.” New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

While theologians notice discrepancies between the gospel accounts and early people mistakenly believed an eclipse had occurred, many people find the verse above enough to confirm that something odd took place in Tampa Bay via the arrival of the shelf cloud.

What do you think? Did you see the shelf cloud in Tampa Bay on Good Friday? Do you think it was a coincidence of natural events or something supernatural?
