Miracle Bridge Pillar Mary

Some people are trying to spot a miracle apparition that others have no problem discerning: a Virgin Mary, specifically a well known drawing of Our Lady of Guadalupe, in a bridge pillar. It's a night phenomenom, an effect visible across the Rock River by looking at the pillars of the Rock River Bridge and the reflection of the light off the water. And squinting a bit.
