In a stunning video released by the team of experts, the sacred moment when a sperm joins with an egg to form a unique human life can be seen producing what looks like a celebratory fireworks display—that’s right, a flash of light that resembles a solar eclipse.

How exactly is this flash produced?

According to the report, as the zinc shoots out, it “binds to small molecules which emit a fluorescence which can be picked up my camera microscopes.”

“We discovered the zinc spark just five years ago in the mouse, and to see the zinc radiate out in a burst from each human egg was breathtaking,” said Dr. Teresa Woodruff, a professor at Northwestern, according to the Telegraph. “It was remarkable.”

The staggering explosion of light can be seen in the video below:

Many have pointed to Scripture in light of this extraordinary biological event. Indeed, at the very Genesis of life as we know it, God spoke these powerful and timeless words: “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3).
