Images and Crosses
On the morning of September 11, 2001, I was working at my home office. After being informed of the first
terrorist attack on the Trade Center towers I turned on the television and watched the horror unfold. I was
shocked at the unimaginable destruction, and overwhelming loss of life. It was a tragedy beyond belief.
As I watched that morning, I noticed a series of eerie faces in the billowing smoke. These images appeared
to morph in the seemingly never-ending pillars of ugly black smoke. I made a mental note of these surreal
apparitions, and I mentioned it to my wife. I did not discuss these sightings again. After all, I tend to see
images in clouds. However the images I see in clouds are always pleasant images, usually animals.
In assembling the archives for this site, I viewed thousands of images and newspaper covers. Again, I noticed
the eerie faces in the still images of the smoke of the burning towers. They seemed to be present in not just
one, but several of the burning tower images. Further research provided additional information and seemed
to confirm what I was seeing.
I was not alone in noticing these awful faces.
Mark D. Phillips, a professional AP photographer in New York, captured an incredibly real image of an evil,
devil-like face that is distinguishable on the side of the tower's exterior structure. The authenticity of this
image has caused a bit of a stir. Our research has concluded that his image is original and not doctored.
The Associated Press and Mark Phillips have unequivocally denied any tampering or enhancement of the
image. In fact, neither AP or Phillips were aware of what the photograph appeared to reveal until the image
was noticed by readers of US newspapers. When the photo appeared on an early Wednesday (Sept. 12)
edition of the Saginaw (Michigan) Press, the phone calls began. (See images below.)
Further reports indicate that both CNN and ABC have also captured additional devilish images on their
television videotape coverage. (See images below.)
Additional faces and images have also been identified by several others. (See images below.)
The images on this page are not intended to frighten. They are what they are: mostly evil images from an evil
act. I, like most people in the world, are convinced that goodness will prevail over evil, and we pray that the
likes of these images will never be seen again.
In a speech to the USA on September 11th, President Bush said, "Today, our nation saw evil." He may have
been literally correct. Later in that same speech he also said, "Tonight, I ask for your prayers for all those
who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security
has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a power greater than any of us spoken through
the ages in Psalm 23: "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for
you are with me."
Not all images below depict evil faces. Some images depict angel-like images, objects, and flying creatures.
We offer our research as an archive of the images that show something, whatever that something may be.
There are also remarkable stories of NYC firemen dropping to their knees in prayer after seeing crosses
rising up from the catastrophic ruins of the WTC towers.
We begin this section with the original story of the crosses, images of one of the crosses, where the cross was
originally sighted, and a memorial with the NYC Fire Department. We have also included memorable cross
images from the days following the September 11th attacks.
God Bless Our Earth.
