"The sign of the Son of man in heaven"


Matthew 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Is this scripture two things are said to be seen.
The first to be seen is, "the sign of the Son of man in heaven".
The second to be seen is, "the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven".
What is the sign of the Son of man in heaven?
It doesn't say that they will see the Son in heaven, like Stephen did.
But the sign of the Son of man in heaven.
The disciples had asked Jesus three things, a few lines earlier:

Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

One thing they asked was, "what shall be the sign of thy coming"
The Jesus told them about the sign of the Son of man in heaven.
So, what is that sign?
