For a summary account of the Halo phenomenon, including copies of newspaper and other documents, please download the article, ""the Supernatural Halo Photograph".
After examination of the negative, Mr. George Lacy, Examiner of Questioned Documents, Houston, Texas, concluded; "I am of the definite opinion the negative ….. was not retouched, nor was it a composite or double exposed negative. Further, I am of the definite opinion that the light streak appearing above the head in a halo position was caused by light striking the negative".
Brother Branham was not greatly surprised at the photograph as a number of similar things had happened in his ministry before.
Complete details of the event as related by William Branham, are to be found on the audio sermon recording:
"We Would See Jesus," Columbus, Ohio, March 14, 1954, included in the William Branham Storehouse Collection

Following a public debate over Divine healing, God vindicated William Branham by allowing him to be photographed beneath a supernatural halo (he referred to this as a "Pillar of Fire") at the Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, Texas, January 24, 1950.
