VIDEO of a strange giant “square cloud” in the sky has sent conspiracy theorists into overdrive with claims it proves a top-secret US weather control program is REAL. The video, which has appeared on Facebook, YouTube and conspiracy theory websites, is said to have been filmed in Tuscon, Arizona.
It shows the massive weather phenomenon spanning across much of the sky.
As the camera pans around, the cloud seems to have perfect 90-degree corners to give it the appearance of a square.
The video sparked wild speculation after being posted to Facebook.
Perfectly Square Cloud Spotted in Arizona Sky

After seeing the clip, Lino Nappa said on Facebook: “In my opinion someone is trying to manipulate the elements.”
The infamous High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Programme (HAARP) was set up by the US government in 1993, and run by the US Air Force and US Navy.
Although mostly top-secret, critics accuse HAARP of attempting to weaponise the planet.
The US Department of Defence has allegedly attempted to harness and control everything from the weather to earthquakes and use them as weapons.
HAARP was based on a US Air Force base in a remote part of Alaska, far from civilian eyes, until military involvement officially ended in 2014.
Square clouds are a natural phenomenon, but people believe it is proof of weather control.
It is now run by the University of Alaska Fairbanks in Gakona, Alaska, which arranges tours of the facility.
According to official papers HAARP was set up “analyse the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance”.
However, some conspiracy theorists are convinced the military is still involved and it was really set up to research how to use artificial weather as a weapon against other countries and even how to trigger earthquakes or volcanoes.
The controversial programme – run by the USAF, US Navy and research companies – studies an energetic and active region of the upper atmosphere.
Many, including Venezuelan leader Huge Chaves, even claim HAARP can be used to trigger huge tremors, including the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
One viewer of the cloud footage said: “Signs everywhere and yet they don’t look up or asking what is happening.”
“If it is real, and not a cleverly mirrored image, then it is a very strange man-made looking cloud,” another said.
A fourth added: “They are making significant progress in the handling of clouds, when there is a cubic cloud.”
Many viewers thought it was a hoax using CGI.
One video on YouTube shows how a fake square cloud clip was created from iPhone footage with After Effects CS6 using the 3D Camera Tracker.
It is not the first footage of a square cloud which has circulated on the internet.
In 2015 YouTube channel Sonofmabarker showed a similar video of a square cloud filmed from a jet plane.
Tha narrator said in a video: “What would cause something like this in the weather scheme? I have no explanation for this, it is a strange one.”
One viewer said: “Man made cloud plain and simple.
“It must be HAARP.”
But another added: “This is bulls**t. It’s been photo shopped.”
Scott Brando, who runs debunking website Ufoofinterest.org, said: “It’s not a hoax but just a natural phenomenon.”
