Solar Eclipse

This is a solar eclipse. Take a real close look at it. What do you think it looks like? It is believed that over the years early people looked at the sky and saw the solar eclipse as the EYE OF GOD. I can see it. Can you? It does have an eye appearance. The pupil in the center...the shape of the eye.

During the eclipse God was peeking in and checking out how things were going on earth. It seems plausible that early man would have a thought like this. They were observing the sky, and this must have seemed like proof to early man that God existed and was watching them.

I can almost imagine how surreal the experience would have been for the early people. Maybe even more so for the "common" people. I am sure that the educated (scribes, royalty, and scholars) knew of some records, but others had no idea what was going on at the time.

Let me know what you think.


  1. ...Wonderful the believes of the early people....; there are very different explanations of so many cultures....(learnd it through my many years of traveling the globe)

    Personally I saw really well and clear just once in my life a wonderful perfect eclipse...!

  2. Hi Kimberly, Love your analagy of the eclipse. I shall never look at one the same. That is if I'm fortunate enough to see another one, you never know. So glad you took the time to come and see me and leave a comment. As you may have guessed, I'm a dog person, but wha't a Cane Corso? Great blog, I shall return with regularity. Take care, Keri

  3. Not being familiar with the history of solar eclipses myself, I had never heard of the early interpretation ~ "The Eye of God". I can see how earlier cultures would have made that connection. What a beautiful way of looking at the universe! Thank you, as always, for inspiring and teaching me something new.

  4. Definitely can see the Eye of God. Very interesting!
