The Miracle of the Sun in Fatima October 13, 1917 was witnessed by as many as 100,000 people in the Cova da Iria fields near Fatima, Portugal. According to many witness statements, after a downfall of rain, the dark clouds broke and the sun appeared as an opague, spinning disk in the sky. It was said to be less brighter than normal and cast multicolored lights. The sun is reported to have careened towards the earth in a zigzag pattern. Some people reported their wet clothes became dry.
The Miracle of the Sun is a miraculous event witnessed by as many as 100,000 people on 13 October 1917 in the Cova da Iria fields near Fátima, Portugal. Those in attendance had assembled to observe what the Portuguese secular newspapers had been ridiculing for months as the absurd claim of three shepherd children that a miracle was going to occur at high-noon in the Cova da Iria on 13 October 1917.
Our Lady of Fatima (or Our Lady of the Rosary) In 1917, Mother Mary appeared to three young children in Fatima, a small village in Portugal.
