The Day The Sun Danced
The miracle at Fatima, Portugal, 1917.
|Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta.|
First off, it had been raining, heavily, all day up to the time of the apparition, then the sun came out. Instantly the ground was dry. Then the people looked at the sun, and they could do so without pain or hurting their eyes, Suddenly the sun seemed to grow, or move closer to them and it "danced" in the sky. It is reported that even previously non-believers fell to their knees and begged Our Lord forgiveness.
The photos below show the crowds of people at Fatima, the first two showing them looking at the Miracle of the Sun.
The following picture is of the site of the apparitions, but it is likely from some time after 1954. The reason for dating it post 1954 is that basilica did not begin construction until 1928 and was completed in 1954.
