“A brilliant fireball lit up the night sky above parts of New Mexico and Texas this week in a fiery display recorded by a skywatching camera. The fireball, thought to be created by a small space rock, occurred Tuesday night (Sept. 21) at about 11:01 p.m. EDT (0301 GMT) and was captured in a video camera as the meteor carved its fiery trail across the sky. It lasted 23 seconds and covered parts of New Mexico and west Texas, according to the website Spaceweather.com. [Video of the Sept. 21 fireball below.] “I was inside at the time, but heard and felt the sonic boom,” said radio astronomer Thomas Ashcraft, who operates the all-sky camera 20 miles (32 km) outside of Santa Fe, NM that recorded the fireball as it flew overhead. At first, Ashcraft thought the sound was thunder, but no storms were expected. Then a phone call inquiry led him to check his camera’s data, where he saw “a spectacular meteor occurrence.”
This verse from Luke is a promise of something to occur in the Tribulation, but we can see activity in the sun, moon, and stars rising as we near the Day. Or, alternatively, fireballs such as these could be satan and one of his lying wonders.
“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea…” Luke 21:25.
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, (2 Thess 2:9)
Here is Mr Ashcrafts’s video. The fireball begins at about 8:00 position 9 seconds into the 30 second clip.
