Angel And Bright Lights
2:8
  And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.   9  And,   lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the  Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.  10  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12  And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
            An angel of Yhovah appeared over the shepherds in the field and the area around them became brightly illuminated. 

The Transfiguration And Bright Lights
9:28
   And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into  a mountain to pray.  29  And as he prayed, thefashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.  30  And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:  31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.32  But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.  33  And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.
