1st Nephi 1 : 9

And it came to pass that he saw One descending out of the midst of heaven, and he beheld that his luster was above that of the sun at noon-day.

Before Dad had time to take in the scene before him, another being appeared. Dad knew right away this was no angel. For one thing, the figure shone so brightly He made the sun look like a puny campfire. As the blinding figure dropped out of the clouds, Dad recognized him as the Messiah that would come to earth in a few hundred years.
