The mystery couple (Reddit)

A photographer who captured a couple during what appears to be a marriage proposal on the skating rink at New York City's Rockefeller Center is asking on the Internet for help in identifying them.

The photo, taken Monday night, shows a skater dropping to one knee on an empty rink underneath the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.

A Reddit user named "Johnny Thunders" posted the image on Tuesday with a message: "Anyone know a couple who got engaged at the Rockefeller tree last night? I'd love for them to have this!"

The Rink at Rockefeller Center offers special engagement packages — ranging from $350 to $1,000 — that allow for intimate ice time to pop the question.

According to a Reddit user who works at the center, ice engagements are very common, "at least 5 times a day. Maybe 10 on Saturdays."

"Wow," another user responded. "Unless it's her lifelong dream to be proposed to like that, that is the lamest engagement I can imagine. It's like the Disney World of engagements."

"I know these engagements happen all the time," the photographer wrote, "but I was surprised to be at such a nice viewpoint. I’d really love for them to have this."

"Quick," another user wrote. "Everyone browse Instagram for diamond rings #engaged #nyc #rockefeller."

The post has generated more than 500 responses and at least one lead, but so far, the identity of the couple remains a mystery.
