AN ANGEL IN THE VATICAN?

St Peter`s Basilica
 I came across this interesting story of a picture taken a couple of years ago by a couple on holiday in Rome.
What do you think?

When retired policeman Andy Key went on a trip to Rome, he was struck by the beauty of sunlight streaming through a window in the Vatican.

As the Pope made an address nearby, he decided to capture the stunning image on his camera.


But it was only when Mr Key, 48, and his wife Susan, 44, returned home and and downloaded their photographs that they noticed a strange apparition in the picture.
Angel, or trick of the light?
They were amazed to see what looked like the image of a guardian angel above the heads of other visitors to St Peter's Basilica.


Mr Key, from March, Cambridgeshire, said: "It looks like an angel hovering on the people's heads.

"No-one can explain it - there's nothing on their heads for the light to bounce off."

Mr Key went on the holiday to mark his retirement from his job as a police constable for Cambridgeshire Police.

He and his wife, a medical secretary, were looking around the famous church when they noticed a large group of people and realised the Pope was making an address nearby.

"I was taking pictures of all the things around us and saw this huge window with the light streaming through and thought it looked beautiful," he explained.

"I snapped the picture and didn't noticed anything until I got home.

"It looks almost like a hologram. I thought it was really spooky."

It was only revealed when he got home, plugged his digital Kodak camera into his computer and downloaded the images.

Mr Key, who now works as a student mentor at the Neale-Wade Community College in March, said: "It wasn't as if we had visited Rome for any particularly religious reason. We were simply sight-seeing as you do.

"I had not really thought about angels and stuff before. I don't know if I believe in it all but it does look like an angel.

"Several people have looked at it including a professional photographer and they can't work out what it might be - maybe it is a guardian angel."


Depending on how far away this image was taken might determine what it actually was.
It certainly is a fascinating shape, and does resemble an angelic form, but equally it could be something else more mundane and day to day.
This reminds me of this post from the blog`s archive.
