In the previous post, I wrote that in scripture, three episodes of darkness in the earth and signs in the sky were related to:

  • locusts
  • severe weather systems and
  • miraculous acts of God.

With this in mind, I found a few examples in human history related to darkness in the earth and signs in the heaven such as redness of the sun. Each catastrophe was followed by disastrous outcomes:

a. extreme weather in 535 – 536 CE was followed by four years of darkness and worldwide disaster

b.  1870 Dark Day in the USA (from two perspectives)

It was followed in 1929 by the economic collapse that lasted for several years.

c. 1783 volcanic eruption in Iceland
