The Parhelion: A Prophecy.

Edward IV's Holy Trinity

Was it a bright spot, like the one in the image, that appeared this day in 1461 that convinces Edward IV that he would win the forthcoming battle? A sun spot or a Parhelion, sometimes appears on either side of the sun, giving the impression of a saintly halo. Edward thought it represented the Holy Trinity and that God was on his side. It is from this beautiful sight that Edward took his emblem....The Sun in Splendor. The Battle, that came to be known as Mortimer's Cross, took place on the following day, the 2nd of February 1461.
