Then, another army from As-Sufyani will go to Al Medina
and pillage it for three days and thereafter proceed towards Mecca
until they find themselves in a desert.
Then, Allah will send Gabriel and say to him, 'Chastise them!'
So he will beat them with his leg once and Allah will cause them to be swallowed up.
None will remain except two men who will return to As-Sufyani to inform him
of the swallowing-up of his army, but this will not scare him.
Several men from the Koraysh will escape to Constantinople
and As-Sufyani will send to the leader of the Romans
who will return them to him and he will slit their throats
together with their followers.
Yes it’s true that the Northern lights require effort. They aren’t just going to appear every clear night and dance in a kaleidoscope of colours until dawn. I have seen them five times. Once purely by chance from South Wales on 8th November 1991, very bright reds and overhead, spectacular, even Patrick Moore mentioned this display in one of his many books.
I was on Orkney last year and heard that the night I arrived the lights had made an appearance so the next night I walked above the street lights of Stromness at about ten and looked straight towards the Pole Star. I was treated to a greyish white display for about two hours, Really had to adjust my eyes to the dark and be patient, It was a very slow formation, like someone shining the beams of torches into the air or a SLOOOOW heart monitor. The same happened the next night.
I saw them again from Glastonbury in October, very clear and looked like a crazy cloud formation but it was such a clear night there was no way it was a cloud. It looked like a dancer’s skirt or a woman’s knee. I called my friend and she joined me to watch, and we saw the “torch” beams again for a couple of hours, could just pick out faint green and pink colours.
The last time was on Samhain, October 31st, Bitterly cold Halloween evening and my friend and I were walking through a cemetery near Newbury, We saw a very distinct single curved line, again greyish in colour which gradually moved lower in the sky until it faded.
So yes, head out a few hours after dusk, away from Street lights.. Autumn is good!! Look towards the Great Bear and the Pole star, and look LOW. Then wait and be patient. It is not always going to be a multi colured time lapse display, but you will be rewarded for your patience.
