a rushing mighty wind

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. (Acts 2: 1-3)

Today, the day after Pentecost, we saw the power of the wind as the jet stream blew over the top of us and interacted with strata of clouds. Furthermore as the sun shone through the disorganized ice crystals the clouds were iridescent.

As the sun rose, the clouds were shaped like a human hand.

The winds moving over the tops of the stable cloud strata wiped the clouds into vortexes like waves at the beach in whats known as the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability.
