South African President Nelson Mandela:Comet ISON Harbinger of Death

There are those who believe that when comets just as Halley’s Comets, Lovejoy’s Comet and now Comet ISON appear in our solar system that they bring about some type of monumental change or great death.

With Haley’s Comet of 1665 was said to be responsible for signalling the Black Death, the comet’s return in 1910 announced the death of King Ewdard VII of England and The American writer Mark Twain.

North Korean President Kim Jong II died within days of Comet Lovejoy December 2011, and now former South African President Nelson Mandela died one week from the day that Comet ISON conjunct the Sun.

There can be no denial that these comets and many others have brought about a change to our lives, our leaders and our world.
