The Great Sun Miracle of Fatima - Fatima Portugal
The Miracle of the Sun occurred just after midday on Sunday 13 October 1917, attended by some 30,000 to 100,000 people who were gathered near Fátima, Portugal. Several newspaper reporters were in attendance and they took testimony from many people who claimed to have witnessed extraordinary solar activity. The event lasted approximately ten minutes. 
The event was officially accepted as a miracle by the Roman Catholic Church on October 13, 1930. On October 13, 1951, the papal legate, Cardinal Tedeschini, told the million people gathered at Fátima that on several dates in 1950, Pope Pius XII himself witnessed the miracle of the sun from the Vatican gardens
