Hanukkah mystery: Eerie Blue Images caught on camera at Menorah lighting

WASHINGTON

Was it a bird? Was it a plane? Was it a sign from heaven?

Mysterious blue images captured during menorah lighting in Washington, D.C.

That's what Carrie Devorah wants to know after she inadvertently photographed some mysterious blue light images hovering heavenward while taking pictures of the lighting of the Chabad menorah on the first night of Hanukkah on the Ellipse in the nation's capital.

"I took this shot as I was walking to get into place," she said. "For those of you who know D.C., you will recognize the two red lights to the left as being from the Washington Monument. And you will know there is no building that tall to the right of the menorah where the two blue images are."

Are they lens refractions? Are they planes from National Airport? Devorah isn't sure.

"I was fascinated by the stage light silhouetting the menorah," the photographer explained. "So I walked as close as I could, shot with my wide angle lens....I noticed the blue images when I returned home."

Devorah says she took three photographs in sequence and the blue images; the mystery lights; are ascending in the sequence.

Devorah was in the news last spring when her brother Chezi was killed in a terrorist bus bombing in Israel.

She wrote about her experience and her loss in a WorldNetDaily commentary.

Still feeling the loss, Devorah takes comfort from the mysterious lights.

"Messiah? A sign? Blue angels?" she asks rhetorically. "All I know is it was fortuitous on a day I was needing to see ... one set of footsteps in the sand, a sign I am being carried."

Have never seen rods at night. Perhaps the lighting was just right.

The two blue things are pointing directly at the bright light below the menorah. It's an optical artifact, something like a lens flare you get from the sun.

It's a silly article, but here goes: So you know how to do it, replace the brackets ("[") with karats ("<") and use this formula: [img src="http://address.ext"] Where address is the web address of the PHOTO (not the web page, but the photo), and ext is the file extrension (i.e., jpg or gif). If you are using Internet explorer, you can find the web address of the photo by right clicking on the photo, and then selecting "Properties."

FWIW: Jewish angels ascending from a Menorah, taking the form of crosses?

Optical aberrations and flare of the camera lens. Looks like mostly coma.

Thank-you very much Keith in Iowa.

I hope I can buy you a beer one day soon in Jerusalem, or a rum, or a bottle of French Champagne, or a cocktail, whatever you prefer...

These are clearly angels. Or Photoshopped. Or UFOs. Or Photoshopped angels made to look like UFOs. I also wouldn't entirely rule out some kind of reflection. But I know I've never taken a picture of a menorah and had blue photoshopped UFO angels in it.

mir·a·cle n.

(1)An event that appears inexplicable by the laws of nature and so is held to be supernatural in origin or an act of God: “Miracles are spontaneous, they cannot be summoned, but come of themselves” (Katherine Anne Porter).

(2)One that excites admiring awe. See Synonyms at wonder.

(3)A miracle play.

[Middle English, from Old French, from Latin mrculum, from mrr, to wonder at, from mrus, wonderful. See smei- in Indo-European Roots] From Dictionary.com

I think the above three definitions apply to the photo, the event and the times we are living in.

Here's the picture formula: Right click on photo. When the panel pops up, go to Properties and click. You'll see a url address. Copy that and transfer it to your post. Example: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/images2/dclights1.jpg To that add: Voila...picture. :0)

Don't ask me how, but in the post (37) the "> at the end of the jpg became a box.

If we all believe in the possibility of good winning over evil, guess what ?

Can you summarize Art Bell's philosophy/mindset/belief system in twenty words or less ? I have heard his name mentioned. I try and keep informed of the news coming out of the USA, but I don't know much about him.

Its an flare artifact of the lens/camera. Notice the slight difference in brightness between the upper and lower images. The upper one is on one surface of the lens, the second is on the next surface.

Invite outlandish guests, ooh and ahh at what they have to say, keep the rubes calling long enough to fill up five hours of time usually unproductive for radio stations and make oodles of money while doing it.
