Missing Volcano

The Day the Sun Turned Blue: A Volcanic Eruption in the Early 1460s and Its Possible Climatic Impact—A Natural Disaster Perceived Globally in the Late Middle Ages?


“Strange atmospheric phenomena visible all over Europe in September 1465 are interpreted as the result of a volcanic dust veil, possibly originating from a re-dated eruption of Kuwae in Vanuatu, in the southwestern Pacific. There is ample evidence (concerning temperature and precipitation) of years without summers from 1465 to 1469 and their subsequent agricultural, economic, and social impact.”

It was the biggest eruption for 700 years but scientists still can’t find the volcano responsible.

Only, if only, you survive. Prepare the sacrifice. I will wait, after all, patience is trust. – Z.M. Musk

Imagine if you can, viewing the flames of redemptive death as uncertainty spews across the stars path. Then remove all modern technology. Stand at the mountain, in person, face to god, in awe of some mystery contained in sulfuric acid rain. Summer is gone. Fall has turned the heaven into a nightmare of dust, quaking in steam bath brilliance. But only at night.
