Image of Christ appears in Northern Lights

Photographer Jón Hilmarsson captured these beautiful images of the Northern Lights above Akranes, south-west Iceland. What especially caught his eye was how much the shape of this natural phenomenon resembled the statue of Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro in Brazil.

The photograph has generated international interest after being published in The Daily Mail.
