Is this proof of the divine? Figure of Christ spotted in spectacular northern lights display
This is the heavenly moment the figure of Christ was spotted during a spectacular northern lights display.
Seen high in the sky, the shape of the aurora has an uncanny resemblance to that of Christ the Redeemer.
Captured during in a rare show containing vibrant colours of red, green and even purple, the Deity’s head, shoulders and outstretched arms were seen hovering near the Icelandic town of Akranes.
The breath taking images were taken by Icelandic photographer, Jón Hilmarsson, 48, who was prompted by his ten year old son to take photographs of the vivid skies.
After venturing outside, Jón immediately noticed it was the most stunning northern lights display he had ever seen.
The headmaster then spent hours travelling to different locations to capture the dazzling display on camera.
Jón said: “This was the most beautiful and vivid northern light display I have ever seen.
“We usually see green auroras but that night I saw bright green, red and purple colour, which is very unusual.
“Many people see the shape of Christ but also an angel formation.
“It made me a little bit stressed and also excited to be there and witness this natural phenomenal in the sky, it was a unique night even though we have very often bright and beautiful northern lights in Iceland.
“It was wonderful to photograph, the lights were dancing through the sky and constantly exploding, giving me all kinds of different formation to follow and admire.”
