A mum was stunned to find this angel-like silhouette appear in the wax of her melting candle while she enjoyed a romantic night in with her husband.
Lisa Smith, 45, was relaxing in her back garden and drinking wine with partner Paul Smith, 58, on the evening of August 9, when she spotted the angelic figure.
The couple who have been together 20 years decided to light a candle to enjoy a quiet night in together.
But mother-of-two Lisa was in awe as, after about an hour, she saw a heavenly angel transform from the melting wax.
She quickly took snaps of the saintly shape on her mobile phone before it disappeared after around ten minutes.
The hospital receptionist says: “It was just me and my husband. We were sat in our garden on a nice evening
“It was starting to get dark. We were having a romantic evening together so we decided to light a candle.
“After about one hour, this angel shape appeared. We were looking at it and we saw the angel transform.
“It was overwhelming. We were left speechless for a few minutes, mesmerised by the angel.
“It became stronger, more of an angel.
“It was incredible. We felt eerie at first. We wanted to cry.
“It was quite a scary moment in a way but at the same time it was a nice moment.
“It was a night that we’ll never ever forget. It makes us believe that someone was watching down over us.”
“I couldn’t believe it. I was on the phone to my sister straightaway.”
Lisa, of Awsworth, Notts., has since tried to repeat the incredible moment but has been unable to do so.
She added: “It was just with a simple, supermarket candle. It wasn’t fancy or anything, just a basic one.
“We have tried a couple of times to do it again. We used the same type of candle but it wouldn’t work.”
