“It must have been 1:30 p.m ….
“The sky, which had been overcast all day, suddenly cleared … The sun, a few moments before, had broken through the thick layer of clouds which hid it and now shone clearly and intensely ….
“Suddenly I heard the uproar of thousands of voices, and I saw the whole multitude … turn their backs to that spot where, until then, all their expectations had been focused, and look at the sun on the other side. I turned around, too, toward the point commanding their gaze and I could see the sun, like a very clear disc, with its sharp edge, which gleamed without hurting the sight. It could not be confused with the sun seen through a fog (there was no fog at that moment), for it was neither veiled nor dim. At Fatima, it kept its light and heat, and stood out clearly in the sky, with a sharp edge, like a large gaming table. The most astonishing thing was to be able to stare at the solar disc for a long time, brilliant with light and heat, without hurting the eyes or damaging the retina. [During this time], the sun’s disc did not remain immobile, it had a giddy motion, [but] not like the twinkling of a star in all its brilliance for it spun round upon itself in a mad whirl ….”
The testimony of one “Professor Almeida Garrot” — one of ~70,000 people, who at noon on October 13, 1917 … witnessed, first hand, Fatima’s still inexplicable “Miracle of the Sun.”

3- Note from Listener Steve:
Message Body: You mentioned that Fatima is at circa 39 (19.5 x 2) degrees latitude. Well just as interesting is Fatima’s LONGITUDE … 8.65 – 8.66 degrees. AND Lourdes France is 8.65 degrees to the east at 0 longitude. COOL.

Apparitions of the Angel. Although I cannot give the exact date, it seems to me that it was in 1915 that the first Apparition took place. As far as I can judge, it was the Angel, although at that time he did not venture to make himself fully known.
