Man Captures Christ-Like Figure in Midst of Spectacular Sunset

An Italian man captured a striking moment when sunrays broke through the clouds above the Tyrrhenian Sea to create a fascinating figure that resembled Jesus Christ.

The footage went viral around the world after Alfredo Lo Brutto, from Italy's Agropoli, had posted it on Facebook on March 1st.

"I was enchanted by the view. I don't often share pictures on social media, but when I took this one, I instantly felt like I wanted other people to see it, because it was so beautiful," he said.

The shape created by the spectacular sunset light show seemed to resemble the renowned Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
