When Cory Hearon looked to the sky last Tuesday, he was shocked by what he saw.

The single cloud above Camden, South Carolina, looked remarkably like an angel in the sky. He shared what he saw in a Facebook live stream that has since been viewed more than 6 million times.

"I almost didn't video it," Hearon, 37, told TODAY. "It was the first time I had seen something that remarkable with my own two eyes."

According to Hearon, the video doesn't do it justice but he wanted to live-stream the occurrence to avoid any accusations that the cloud was a product of Photoshop.
