Kerri Liles posted an intriguing image on Facebook about two weeks ago of what appears to be a humanoid shape in the clouds. She and her family were on an airplane traveling back to Houston, Texas from Washington on Sunday May 14, when her seven-year-old son captured the photo through the plane’s window.
Viewing the photos on her smartphone later, she discovered the curious manifestation, which she believes may be her son’s guardian angel. As you can see in the Facebook post, the figure appears above the clouds in a blurry human form, arms open.
Liles told the Houston Chronicle that her son, AAsher, who has Down syndrome, seems to have a “sixth sense about others’ needs.” She named him with two As as a reference to his extra chromosome and to “reflect his AAwesomeness,” and says she has reason to believe he can see the “angels that surround him.”
Is this photo of an actual guardian angel? Pareidolia? Something else? What do you believe?
