    Several South Florida residents witnessed what they described as an angel in the clouds, WPTV reported.

    Various pictures were taken of what looks like a clear sky, with a noticeable pink cloud that resembles an angel.

    It happened the day Pope Francis was announced and some Catholics saw it as a possible sign from God.

    Fifty singers from the Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart will join the Sistine Chapel Choir in St. Peter's Square for the Easter Sunday Mass with Pope Francis. Choir members Isabel Madia, Sophia Carratala and Stephanie Fernandez and Head Mistress Suzanne Cook spoke about the upcoming trip.

    “The pope asked to pray for Him,” Cat Sunn told WPTV. “God answered.”

    But others found numerous explanations as to what the cloud could be.
