You don’t see this every day.
A young woman was fortunate enough to notice a figure in clouds and then as the sun got into the perfect position, the figure lit up.
The image was taken by local resident, Joey Mataele, on New Year’s Day above his brother’s house in the village of Halaleva in Tongatapu.
With a clear outline of a head, body and feet, and a golden glow from the sun, Mr Mataele believed it was a sign from the heavens.
“This is an image that was unexpected and I know it’s a miracle in my life. Thank you Lord for everything you’ve provided for me and my family,” he captioned the photo.
… But it was enough for Mr Mataele, a devout Catholic, to see an image emerging.
“He took one photo and then it kept getting brighter,” Ms Mataele said.
In the second photo, the rest of the clouds have vanished and the shape of a person can be seen.
Ms Mataele has spent most of her life living on the property in Tonga, and said she has never seen anything like it.
