This Is The Way The World Ends

halo cloud

Last week a giant circular cloud, nicknamed a “Halo cloud” due to the roundish shape, appeared over the city of Moscow (the video of which is located after the jump). UFO enthusiasts everywhere are convinced it was an unidentified aerial phenomenon however if you’ve played through The Storm level of Halo 3’s campaign, I’m sure you’ll recognize its true existence as quickly as I did. I’m calling it now: next up is rain, cloud-to-cloud lightning, and then a brilliant blue beam will open the portal to the Ark. Get ready, the Flood are coming. And I don’t mean of the water variety either.

      • Marksman says:

        Lol, an AK-47? Drastic for a funny shaped cloud and the possibility of the destruction of the galaxy.

      • brmonkey says:

        snipers dont work against the flood according to the book Halo: The Flood.

        yay! im a super geek!

    • Jake says:

      OMG about 3 months ago I saw what looked to be a trangler shape aircraft and when I blink it was gone! I ran in my house screaming! So I am really Scared! We are so Screwed!

      • Moni7or says:

  2. CurbStomp says:

    I would probably shit my pants if I ever actually saw something like that.

    • Marksman says:

      Meanwhile Mars is laughing at us.

      • Varlin says:

        Fucking kangaroos.

  10. Crazeye0 says:

    Will a certain dinsaur ask a retarded question considering his experiences with the Flood?

    • More Brutes?

      • Crazeye0 says:

        No, worse.

        • IcyTreats says:

          *adjusts AR*

  11. Doc says:

  12. DethPwn says:

    My god. Obama, the Prophet of Hope, has truly led us astray with the firing of the Ark :)

    • danieljc2008 says:

      aw, i LIKE that!

  13. have you seen any banshee? No? So, i conclude it’s a FAKE!

    • Seb says:

      Well duh!!!! The flood never piloted banshees!

  14. :O I’d love to have something cool to look at like this as I’m staring out the window in Creative Writing class…

  15. HellCat says:

    “This is ONI recon 111 there are covanent carriers gathered above the crater”
    “But the digsite is arcoss the city”
    “What did truth just do? did he activate the rings?”

    All apply

  16. Predator5791 says:

    LOL I thought the same thing when I saw this on yahoo news. It really does resemble the storm on Halo 3.

    • bs angel says:

      It does, very much! It popped into my Google Alerts and at first I thought, “Hey, cool cloud!” which quickly switched to, “OMGWTFRUN4URLIVES!”

  17. Tom Edwards says:

    holy crap…..
    Is this new, i’ve never heard of this before n they dont teach these in school.
    n y moscow?

    • Marksman says:

      1. No, it has happened before. Someone above you posted a link to an old painting with these clouds in it.
      2. It is completely, randomly in Moscow. It could happen anywhere else, but that’s just where it did this time. No, i don’t think it’s common in Russia, either.

  18. Cellblock says:

    There’s a simple solution to this.

    “Tank beats everything!”

    • Luneutric says:

      Cellblock, tank doesn’t beat the Flood that’s gonna come.
      …wait, they didn’t use tanks against the Flood in Halo 3, did they…?
      Well they did in 2, but then those machines just picked them up and ate them…
      But that’s like.. not really Flood. >_>;;

      • Marksman says:

        Lets just leave it at Tank Beats Everything, hmm?

  19. PrinceTMan says:

    Jackass got lost. New Mombasa they were looking for, ended up in Moscow. Come on ya dumb apes!

    • HazMatt says:

      Never let a brute pilot a starship. He’ll just get lost and and he’s too stubborn to ask for directions.

      • Marksman says:

        Brute-Haters unite!

        • danieljc2008 says:


  20. Love Slice says:

    Cool looking cloud, yo.

  21. zizzle17 says:

    We are so screwed.

  22. C79 says:

    Prepare for drop, Chief and ODST’s are coming!

  23. Jake says:

    OMG I saw a Triangler Space Craft 3 months ago! Here is the freaky part I blink it’s gone! So I ran in my house screaming! So i am pretty scared! We are so screwed!

    • Marksman says:

      Just a question:
      Do you EVER get sick of getting “thumbs-down”ed?

  24. Jake says:

    WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

  25. Jake says:

    Halo is accutaly REAL?!?!?! That is awsome Bungie you made the Brutes mad now their going to KILL US!

  26. Rez says:

    Huh. Well, if that does turn out to be a Slipspace rupture, we are BEYOND SNAFU. Dude, Halo is freaking 2552, with energy shielding, super main battle tanks, faster than light travel, SPACESHIPS, plasma and laser weaponry that doesn’t require a light vehicle to lug around, and the humans were STILL getting their @$$ dragged across the floor! It’s freaking 2009! The least the Covenant can do is wait for our silly little “Apocalypse scenario” and coincide with 2012. I mean, c’mon. Lol

  27. Jake says:

    That is what the flood weather is like in Halo!

    • Skeah says:

      Honestly, Jake, I can’t tell if you’re trolling, or just 12 and forgot to take your ritalin…
      …so just in case, let’s not feed the troll.

      • Jake says:

        I was telling the truth! But we all need to work together to stop the Flood or Covenent Or BOTH! Or we could pick the 2 choice! 2 choice is we all DIE! So guys lets stop fighting and kick so alien ASS!

  28. Jake says:

    Your right 2012 we might be more screwed and life on Earth could end! And one more thing guys the scientists comfired the planets will aline on Dec. 21, 2012!

    • Kal-El says:

      Just a quick fact about that: The planets align every year!

    • IcyTreats says:

      @ Jake:

      • Aklangi says:

        Why is that not a more popular phrase!

  29. Crazeye0 says:

    Just remember this, if you here some squeaky voices, and then a deep voice say “No inapropriate touching!” you know your screwed.

  47. Humrh360 says:

  48. KkilljoyGruntT says:

    *pulls the plug out of his shotgun and loads it up*

  49. Gunlat3M says:

    Am I the only one thinking that our only chance to survive is to hold off at Mombasa and hope that Master Chief arrives 500 years early?

  50. thephoenix94 says:
