Day Light to Dark in Russia, July 2018

Amos 8:9 “And on that day,” declares the Lord GOD, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.”

July 25, 2018: And the lights went out in Russia… in the middle of the day. And this is Newsweek reporting! The sky went dark as night from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the middle of the day. The event took place in Siberian Russia in the Yakutia region.

“When the sun fell out of sight people started phoning the local administration. Many, especially older people, got spooked. It did not come immediately but gradually. The sun was not visible from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the day. We went out on the street especially for it, which many can confirm. Now we don’t even know what to think. We do not have any specialists and the rumors keep multiplying.” Konstantin Starostin, head of Nizhne-Bytantaysk.

“It was around 11 in the morning and the house was pitch dark. Nothing was visible without electricity. Everyone was walking around with torches on. There was no wind. Being out in the street was impossible.”

“How can something cover the sun so that it is not visible? Only a lunar (eclipse) is likely to and if that is the case that this issue is not for us. We do not observe for solar eclipses,” Yuri Degterenko, Deputy Head of the Weather Board’s Environmental Monitoring Group.

“If it was smog from fires, people would know. There would be smoke and a burning smell. Our meteorological stations did not trace such a thing.”

“It was overcast in general so maybe some dark cloud blocked the sun but it could be something that was not a cloud. There was no rain after that,” Yevgeny Potapov, Head of Verkhoyansk.

Russia’s weather agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the matter.

Amos 8:9 “And on that day,” declares the Lord GOD, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.”

Is this the fulfillment of Amos 8? I don’t think so. The context of the verse is the Lord pronouncing judgment on Israel. I take it this event will ultimately be fulfilled in Israel during a period of judgment.

But don’t kid yourself… This event shows the scenario is possible. It happened just like the verse declared.
