Joel: Science and history
- On "the day of the Lord" there will be earthquakes, the sun and the moon will be dark, and the stars will no longer shine.
- "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood."
These "signs" were a lot more impressive before the causes of solar and lunar eclipses
were understood. 2:31
- "The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining." 3:15
- The Lord will roar and the heavens and earth will shake. 3:16
