Morocco: ‘Clouds Falling from the Sky’ Spark Discussion on Social Media

Larbi Arbaoui

Rabat – A video appearing to show cloud-like shapes covering the ground in the region of Doukkala in Morocco was widely shared on social media after it was published on YouTube on last Wednesday.

The video shows the whole area covered in a thick, foam-like substance.

Large chunks of the mysterious substance were captured on video rolling on the ground as if pushed by the breeze.

The people who filmed it  said they were amazed by these mysterious substance.

The cameraman said that he has never seen a similar substance before and that he believes the substance is clouds that fell down from the sky.

“I have never seen clouds fall down to the ground. It is strange,” he said.

The strangeness of the substance and rarity of such a phenomenon divided YouTube commenters on the logical explanation for the appearance of the thick foam.

Some said that it is a result of chemtrails—a long-running conspiracy claiming poisonous toxins are deliberately sprayed from planes onto the public for sinister purposes. This theory has been dismissed by the scientific community.

Some others believed that they are real clouds that fell into the ground, while another opinion says the substance is just the foam from the river carried over by the wind.

Addressing those saying that the mysterious substance is foam from a polluted river, a YouTube user said “It can’t be so. That foam would be too heavy to float around like we see in this video and would be wet and not like cotton.”

One commenter argued that the substance could be “artificial” foam “created…to float in the sky to look like clouds.”

“My best guess would be something to do with chemtrails,” said another commenter.

The cloud-shaped substance has sparked discussion of mystery among social media users in the absence of a logical scientific explanation from an expert.
