A Bizarre colorful cloud formation in the sky was recorded on video just before last week's China earthquake at two places near the quake's epicenter.

All throughout the history, there had been incidents of strange things happening before major earthquakes. For the first time, strange clouds were recorded on video just 30 minutes before Sichuan earthquake. Coloured clouds were recorded using mobile phone cameras in Tianshui, Gansu province approximately 450km northeast of epicentre. Later, similar clouds were reported 200 miles away from the quake's epicentre, Wenchuan.

Last year "earthquake lights' were reported before an earthquake in Peru. Scientists believe that this could be due to the emission of radiations(Scalar waves) from the earth's crust.
