The memory of Joe Paterno still looms large over Penn State. On July 4th, that memory took on an eerily literal connotation when a cloud formation that formed an almost perfect silhouette of the late former Nittany Lions head coach settled over Happy Valley, PA, prior to its Independence Day fireworks.

If you look hard enough everything is there, from the coif that JoePa sported well into his 80s to his prominent nose.
This is not the first time a Paterno-like cloud formation has settled over PSU either. Three years ago this past May 14th, State College resident Mick Dennis shot an amateur video of a cloud that also resembled JoePa.
If anything is worthy of upstaging the sight of 4th of July fireworks, it’s something crazy like this.
