And there was wind of

And there was wind of storm coming from the north, big clouds and fire striking each other, shone around him and from its center there was a sparkle like an eye. Then the prophet states that this “sparkle eye” stands in the “center of fire.” The word translated as “eye” also means something glowing and the word translated as “sparkle” also indicates the amber or the electro! We therefore have a description of what could be a real close encounter with a UFO: A storm cloud is coming from the north, in its storm the fire of propulsion systems rotates on itself, the luminous radiation all around and, at its heart, something bright as the electro. Perhaps this latter image was used to describe the colour and luminescence of 132
