While on vacation in Qatar this past December, Astronomer Elias Chasiotis took some photos of a solar eclipse over the Persian Gulf. The photos were gorgeous, but some saw them as a sinister sign that coincides with recent tensions on the region.
The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN News) characterized the image as “appearing to show a pair of ‘devil horns’ rising up” on a Middle East horizon. The article also made sure to point out that there were a “pair of major earthquakes” that “struck near a major nuclear plant” around the same time the photo went viral.

According to the folks over at Mystic Post, the photo signifies a “dawn of evil.”
“Could these manifestations be altering the course of world events?”
Oh cut it out.
