The Leonid Shower is coming...

This Leonid Shower is the same one many expected would presage the end of the world.. It also symbolizes the fall of the priestly order...

The Great Star Fall of 1833 was well noted...In describing the Day of God,

Jesus foretold that:

'Immediately after the oppression of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven. . .' (KJV Matthew 24:29; quoted KI 24, 33, 41)

Muhammad described the Day when, along with other extraordinary happenings: 'the sun shall be folded up, and.the stars shall fall. . .' (Q 81:1-2)

Bahá'u'lláh tells us that such a happening is also to be understood as symbolic of other events associated with the coming of the Manifestation. The stars that fall, as mentioned in the Gospel, the Qur'án and the Kitáb-i-Íqán have been given two symbolic meanings. Bahá'u'lláh describes one as: '...the divines of the former Dispensation, who live in the days of the subsequent Revelations, and who hold the reins of religion in their grasp. If these divines be illumined by the light of the latter Revelation they will be acceptable unto God, and will shine with a light everlasting. Otherwise, they will be declared as darkened...' (KI 36)

And this one is a personal description of the Great Star Fall of 1833:

"There were those who believed the Judgment Day was near at hand, and undertook to prove out of the Scriptures that this was one of the signs of the coming of the Son of Man. One old lady was emphatic in the statement that it was certainly a "token of some sign." Statements made even by good-meaning people were often quite erroneous. Some men declared that they saw great balls of fire fall into the water, and heard the sizzling noise, like that made when a red-hot iron is thrown into a slake-tub. Others thought they saw these great balls of fire bursting among the tree-tops."
