Loraff’s photo of the sunrise cross went viral after she shared it with a meteorologist at a local TV station.

On the morning of the same day, January 13, in Hawaii, Amy Langley, a former photojournalist for a network TV affiliate in Florida, was on her way to work in the town of Koloa on the island of Kauai.

At 7:15 a.m., struck by the beautiful sunrise, she stopped on the side of the road, got out of her car and took this photo with her Samsung 5 phone.

Sunrise angel in Kauai by Amy Langley, Jan. 13, 2016

Langley’s friends on Facebook variously see in the image an angel or a dove.

Interestingly, as with Mechaele Loraff’s sunrise cross, Langley only noticed the angel when she saw the photo. Langley said, “The shape is only in the photo. It looked like a normal giant pink sun [when taking the picture]!” She believes the image was a “an incredibly bright” flare in the camera lens, mixed with southern winds that pushed volcanic haze from a big island volcano across Hawaii.
