A Church Is Claiming They Captured An Angel On Camera, But We’ve Got A Better Theory

Recently, Glen Thorman, the fire chief for East Jordan, Michigan, was visited by a strange “being” captured on his security camera. He texted the photos to his pastor (as one does) who confirmed his suspicion—it was DEFINITELY an angel. Deneille Moes, the pastor of Jordan Rivers Church, posted the photo to Facebook (again, as one does):


The caption reads:

Last night at the Thorman’s house, the security camera recorded this snapshot. Glen Thorman is the fire chief for East Jordan …( they attend Jordan Rivers) Yep folks… It’s an angel. I guess there is no question who is watching over their residence while they sleep, and yes, they pray that The Angels of the Lord will surround them and their property….These photo’s have not been altered in anyway. The second photo, the security camera also shot because the angel was moving away. The camera is designed to photograph anything in motion or unusual…. lots of tears today when they opened the security on their camera …WOW!

Deneille Moes scored an interview with the local news to gush about the unearthly visitor:

“It was really clear to me the minute I looked at the photo, I just kind of freaked out a bit,” Moes said. “I went like ‘Whoa! That’s an angel!’ And I texted him back, ‘That’s an angel.’ There wasn’t any doubt in my mind that we were looking at something supernatural.”

Here’s a closer look at the photos of what is surely an angel and not at all an errant moth setting off the cameras motion sensor:

The local news, doing their due diligence, took the photos to a photography expert for further study:

”The images were taken to Glass Lakes Photography in Petoskey, Michigan, to be examined. Studio owner Joe Clark said it’s possible an insect set off the sensor, noting that what the image shows is moth-shaped.”

OF COURSE IT’S MOTH-SHAPED IT IS CLEARLY A MOTH! I mean, COME ON! WHY WOULD AN ANGEL BRIEFLY HOVER OVER YOUR TRUCK BEFORE HEADING BACK TO HEAVEN?? I mean, they have wings, they’re probably not in the market for a certified pre-owned Chevy Silverado (or whatever, don’t @ me).

Even if it were a supernatural being, wouldn’t it be more likely that it’s the mysterious Mothman, made famous by the based-on-a-true-story movie The Mothman Prophecies?? In the movie (and real life?) people are visited by a mysterious winged figure dubbed “the Mothman” who foretells of a tragedy on the Ohio River in the days before a bridge collapsed which spanned… THE OHIO RIVER! I’m sure this is still just a moth, but let’s not count out the mysterious Mothman, folks.
