Upside Down Rainbow Thought to Be Signs of Apocalypse

Last December 10, 2012 three sun dogs or halos and upside down rainbows developed in the skies of Shanghai and Jiangsu provinces. The people their thought these phenomenons were signs that the world was going to end. The weather experts said the sun dogs were scientifically called circumzenithal arc or circumzenith arc. The circumzenith arc is caused by sunlight being refracted by ice-crystal plates floating horizontally in the atmosphere.

Today at 19:27 (UT) in the Philadelphia area we saw an upside down rainbow besides its beauty and rarity, it was just a moment to behold.  One thing on our minds was not how reasonable the experience was.

Well, sun dogs are rare. Shakespeare said  “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”.  The people of China had cause to be alarm because sun dogs and sun smiles (upside down rainbows) could be signs of an end or monumental change.  To many native peoples of the world, sun dogs are rare cosmic events indicting get ready for change. The American Native people have prophecies that centered around them. The Hopi, in particular, believe that a woman known as The Whirling Rainbow Woman will bring peace to the world.

“The Whirling Rainbow is the promise of peace among all Nations and all people. The Rainbow Race stresses equality and opposes the idea of a superior race that would control or conquer other races. The Rainbow Race brings peace through the understanding that all races are one. The unity of all colors, all creeds working together for the good of the whole, is the idea that is embodied in the Whirling Rainbow. When all pathways to wholeness are respected by all cultures, the prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow will be completed.”

Upside down rainbows are showing up all over the globe, they are increasing in activity. Maybe its time that people came together for a good cause but will it take a calamity for that to manifest.

From Shakespeare, Richard III, Act II:

“When clouds appear, wise men put on their cloaks;
When great leaves fall, the winter is at hand;
When the sun sets, who doth not look for night?”
