ANSWER: The Portuguese saw the SUN dancing and zig-zagging in the sky.
They also saw it start plunging to Earth only to rise again before crushing them.
They also saw an angel with a flaming sword who shouted in a loud voice, “Penance! Penance! Penance!”
The Miracle of the Sun occurred on the exact day in 1917 that Mary had promised the children a miracle for all to see. That’s why the 70,000 had showed up in the first place – to see if anything would really happen. As you can imagine, there were many conversions that day.
