Fátima Revisited:

The Apparition Phenomenon in Ufology, Psychology and Science

Frank McGillion et al (2008)

An academic analysis of the ‘miracles’ of Fatima, in Portugal, where, in 1917, three peasant children reported a series of visions of the Virgin Mary over a six-month period. These culminated on October 13th when tens of thousands of people reportedly experienced a series of inexplicable meteorological and atmospheric phenomena (including the solar disc moving freely about the sky) collectively known as the “Miracle of the Sun.” Theories concerning how such phenomena may have occurred, and their similarity to contemporary and historical reports of other apparitional phenomena, are discussed from a variety of perspectives.
