Signs In The Heavens
Jesus said that in the end times there will be unusual activity in the skies. It will begin before the Tribulation Period even starts, and
will get progressively worse during the course of those seven years, leading up to the return of Jesus as King of Kings.
- Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes,
famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven." (Luke 21:10-11)
“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. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will
be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin
to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21:25-28)
In the Book of Revelation the opening of the Sixth Seal will cause the sun to turn black, the moon to be blood-red, and stars
to fall to earth. The Greek word for "star" is aster, so this means that asteroids will strike the planet (Revelation 6:12-13).
At the sounding of the Fourth Trumpet, a third of the sky will be blacked out (Revelation 8:12).
Also, when the Fourth Bowl of Wrath is poured out it will cause the sun to send an intense blast of heat (Revelation 16:8-9).

Heavy isn't quite as powerful as the Saturn V, but it is operational. NASA discontinued the Saturn V in the 1970s.
