A closeup of the visage dubbed 'The Angel of 9/11.'
A twisted and corroded steel girder recovered from Ground Zero appears to bear the visage of an anguished woman who construction workers dubbed the “Angel of 9/11.”
The massive mangled beam is part of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum and one of two “impact steel” pieces that feature prominently in the hallowed exhibition slated to open in spring 2014.
Experts believe the beams come from the point where United Flight 175 collided with the South Tower.
Near the top of the distorted metal construction workers say they occasionally see the distinct visage of a person. Her eyes, nose and face are unmistakable.
"You can see the face clear as day, as if it’as looking down over a sacred spot," one visitor told England’s The Sun, which first reported the spooky sight.
A steel expert told NBC News that the beam bears the clear signs of the chemical processes behind corrosion, which created the eerie face.
"Atmospheric corrosion is very sensitive to microclimates," P. Chris Pistorius, a materials scientist at Carnegie Mellon University, told the broadcaster.
"It's actually difficult to get even corrosion of such a surface. It's more likely to get a pattern than to get uniform corrosion."
Construction workers at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum have been stunned at a face appearing in a twisted girder from the World Trade Center.
There are others that are kind of a stretch but it seems to me that 9-11 was almost biblical in a way doesn’t it?
