skodabunny: This is quite cool. I checked out the Anglo Saxon Chronicle to see if it mentioned anything around this time.A.D. 793. This year came dreadful fore-warnings over the land ofthe Northumbrians, terrifying the people most woefully: thesewere immense sheets of light rushing through the air, andwhirlwinds, and fiery, dragons flying across the firmament.These tremendous tokens were soon followed by a great famine: andnot long after, on the sixth day before the ides of January inthe same year, the harrowing inroads of heathen men madelamentable havoc in the church of God in Holy-island, by rapineand slaughter.Giant solar flare maybe?
JustinCase: You rock. I've never seen that before. Thank you.
