I discuss the Fatima miracle of the sun in ufological terms. This connection follows logically from the fact that the sun’s movement would upset the solar system to such a degree that the earth would be flung from its normal orbit exterminating life on earth.

Eyewitness Testimonies of the Event as Taken from Heavenly Lights:
JOSE’ PROENCE DE ALMEIDA GARRET, A LAWYER:
Moments before, the sun had broken overhead through a dense layer of clouds that would have otherwise hidden it, allowing it to shine clearly and intensely.

ANA MARIA CAMARA:
