"...a woman clothed with the sun..."
(Rev 12:1) "And there appeared a great wonder in
heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a
crown of twelve stars:"
With today's astronomy programs it's possible to re-create
the various alignments of the constellations and planets on any given day. So we became
curious as to what John may have been witnessing when he saw this "great wonder"
in heaven. The picture below in no way does justice to what John may have seen, but yet a
glimpse of beauty is still there.
We are not attempting to set dates, but the alignment
below was chosen because the placement of the sun was directly behind Virgo at the same
time that the moon was at her feet, giving the desired effect that we were searching
for. Note that the "crown of twelve stars" is not in this picture, as we
are only trying to show the "clothing" of Virgo by the sun.
For a more indepth look at this scenario, please see The Woman As Virgo, Parts I and II.

In the Kabbala it states:
"240 years before the seventh millennium (i.e., the
year 6000 from creation), the lower waters will rise and cover the entire world, and only
Eretz Yisroel [the Land of Israel] will remain, which will float on the surface of the
water like Noach's Ark; they will approach Gan Aiden [Garden of Eden], the place from
which the four rivers leave. The people who survive will be completely righteous, and
there they will be whitened, purified, and made spiritual." (Yalkut Reuveini,

Rokeach--Gali Razyah) [Quoted by Rabbi Pinchas Winston in his "Perceptions"
