An unnamed resident whose daughter took the picture said ‘in the sky, a rainbow started to be seen, and then some drops started to create the figure (of the Virgin) in the sky surrounding the sun’.
The image was later shared on social media, with many people believing it to resemble the mother of the central figure of Christianity, Jesus Christ.
Local media reported that some residents compared the figure seen in the sky with the Virgin of Itati, the patron saint of the province of Corrientes.
While netizen Susy Jimenez seemingly saw the figure as the Virgin Mary, writing: ‘Thanks Mother for protecting us, for interceding for God, and for your mercy for the people.’
Reports state the figure was also seen from the nearby town of Candelaria. San Carlos is said to be one of the oldest Jesuit towns in the province.
