The Holy Land? Jesus Christ in the Sky over Iceland (Photo)

The Mail Online published beautiful pictures of the northern lights over Iceland earlier today. While most people can agree that the display is magnificent, the Mail saw more:

“A likeness of Jesus Christ appeared in front of a stunned photographer during a northern lights display in Iceland. Seen high in the sky, the shape of the aurora borealis resembled the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Captured during in a rare show containing vibrant colors of red, green and even purple, the deity’s head, shoulders and outstretched arms were seen hovering near the Icelandic town of Akranes.

The display was captured by Jón Hilmarsson, 48, who was prompted by his ten-year-old son to take photographs of the vivid skies.”
