the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him...? Psalm 8:3-4 (NIV)

Sun will 'flip upside down' within weeks - scientists
Dec. 17, 2013 - The Sun switches its polarity approximately once every eleven years. It has far-reaching effects, but they are not expected
to be catastrophic.
Todd Hoeksema, director of the Wilcox Solar Observatory, said the polarity change is built up throughout the eleven year cycle through areas of intense magnetic
activity known as sunspots which gradually move towards the poles, eroding the existing opposite polarity.
Here on Earth it will cause a boost in the occurrence, range and visibility of auroras - the Northern Lights.

If The Sun Doesn’t Blast It, Comet ISON Will Soon Light Up The Sky
Sept. 9, 2011 - Comet ISON has a small head, but its tail can extend for millions of miles. It is being called the Comet of the Century,
but it is now close to the Sun, and astronomers think it could be destroyed by the Sun before we get to see it. If it survives, it will be visible

The Blood Red Moons Of 2014 And 2015: An Omen Of War For Israel?
Sept. 3, 2013 - A "tetrad" of blood-red moons and an eclipse in 2014 and 2015 could be a heavenly sign of importance for Israel. There
have apparently only been eight of these "tetrads," and some of them fell on most-important dates in Israel's history. One of them was in 1949,
right after Israel became a nation. Another was in 1967, the year Israel took full control of Jerusalem.

Dark, massive asteroid to fly by Earth on May 31
May 18, 2013 - On May 31 Asteroid 1998 QE2 will make its closest pass to Earth. It has a sooty substance on its surface, which could
mean it flew too close to the sun. It is 1.7 miles long - big enough to cause global extinction if it collided with the Earth. It will still be
3.6 million miles from our planet this time, but may be closer when it returns in 2119.
