Space Weather News for Aug 31, 2008
Sky watchers across the USA and Europe are reporting unusually colorful sunsets and sunrises. The cause appears to be the August 7th eruption of the Kasatochi volcano in Alaska’s Aleutian islands. The volcano hurled a massive cloud of ash and sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere; high winds have since carried the aerosols over parts of the USA and Europe. “Violet domes,” long pink rays crossing the sky, campfire-red aureoles around Venus–these are just a few of the sights documented on Spaceweather.com in recent days. When the sun goes down tonight, look west. You may be in for a treat.

This, along with the continual seismic activity along the western edge of the US coastline, is raising concerns not only within the Believing community, but also with scientists who are monitoring all that is happening in this part of the area known as the Ring of Fire. A large earthquake hit Vancover Island, Canada, just north of Seattle four days ago. Several earth quakes have hit China along the major fault line where the massive damage was done earlier this year. Perhaps we should be paying closer attention… When the Day of the Lord comes, God will shake the heavens as well as the earth! Isaiah 13 and in Joel 3. The only ones not affected are those, whose hope is in the Lord!!
