My colleague David Halpin has produced another corking article on the fabulous Ancient Origins website. It’s about the mass vision of angels at Fatima in Portugal in 1917. It’s an historical event that has received much attention from luminaries such as Jacques Vallée, David Icke, Jim Marrs, Joaquim Fernandes and Graham Hancock, but in this article David puts an innovative slant on things, as you will see.
In early spring 1916 three local shepherd children, Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto reported that they were visited by an angel on several occasions. These visits later became known as and attributed to the Roman Catholic title – Our Lady of Fatima, or the Virgin Mary. As word of this spread, thousands of people flocked to the area to visit the children and the location of the event. It was said the visitor had promised a miracle for October 13 the following year.
During the Miracle of the Sun event on October 13, 1917, over 80,000 people witnessed an event at Fatima where a bright disc-like object spun through the sky and swooped over the crowds below. The disc radiated colored lights and is said to have emitted heat before returning to the clouds.
