Jesus has appeared in the clouds, on trees, food and even magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Now, a southern Indiana woman says he has just appeared on her farm's silo.
Marcy Marksberry from Spencer, Ind. noticed the rust spots on the top of the corn silo on her farm, but when she took a closer look, she says she began to notice an image of what appeared to be someone’s face.
"The hair outline, eyes, nose, the face that you would typically recognize as the face of Jesus Christ," said Marksberry.
Marksberry showed Fox59 the pictures she took of who she believes in Jesus Christ. She said she first noticed the image last Saturday when she was looking out her window.
“I look out that view every day and I think I would have seen it before," said Marksberry. “Because we have animals, I’m always looking out that view checking on the animals, but I didn't see it until Saturday."
She says she instantly noticed the image of Jesus.
“It just kinda veered my head to it and I saw it and it was there,” said Marksberry. “It was weird."
She said she rushed to show her husband and their two sons.
"At first I thought it was just me thinking that's what it was, but everybody that's seen the photos or seen it some other neighbors have seen it and they think the same thing," said Marksberry.
Marksberry says what appeared on her silo is a small miracle and now that it's here, she hopes it stays.
“I hope it's a sign of a good thing," said Marksberry.
"I don't know if it means anything or not. I would like to know."
There is a name for seeing things like Jesus in a silo. It’s called pareidolia, which is literally defined as "the imagined perception of a pattern or meaning where it does not actually exist.”
