A viral photo of a Christ-like figure with a crown that was captured in Argentina earlier this week has taken the internet by storm.

The picture that resembles Jesus Christ with his arms out was captured by amateur photographer Monica Aramayo in the city of San Salvador de Jujuy.

She recognized the holy figure in the light shining through the clouds and was able to quickly take a picture of it, The Sun reported Wednesday.

Social media users commented on the rare sighting saying things such as "we really need him."

Some have compared it to the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, which overlooks the city. Just a few months ago, in early March, another heavenly figure in the sky was captured over Italy. The Italy image looks very similar to the one just photographed in Argentina.
