Another “cross in the sky.”
A well-defined cross was seen in the sky a few nights since.
A correspondent of the Wilmington (N. C.) Journal
, writing from Kingston, N. C.
, gives the following description of the phenomena:
The moon rose cloudless.
At a little before seven o'clock, two bright spots, some twelve degrees, (quarter in extent?) were visible, one north and the other south, and immediately thereafter a cross was seen in the heavens, the moon joining the four arms of the cross.
About half-past 8 o'clock the northern light went out, but the cross and the spot to the south remained until past ten, when I retired.
Can any one tell when the cross has appeared before since the days of Constantine
, when the letters of I. H. S. accompanied the sign?
