Image believed to be the Virgin Mary on a window at the Olden Avenue Car Wash.
Olden Avenue Car Wash attendant Alex Leiva says he saw the image of the Virgin Mary while at work Monday morning.

A cloud of smoke caught Leiva's attention as he was preparing for work.

When the smoke cleared, he saw the image of the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus in one of the car wash windows, he said.

Leiva was able to snap a few photos on his phone before the image disappeared. He proceeded to send the photos to his family in Honduras, as well as local pastors and ministers.


The owner of the car wash, William Savage, said he doesn't believe Leiva would make the story up.

The image appeared around 9:30 a.m., before any cars had been washed so no condensation had formed on the window prior to the incident.

Leiva has worked at the car wash for the past thirteen years, but this is the first time he has seen an image like this in one of the windows.
