The sky turned a bloody shade of red in China on Saturday, sparking panic among some residents, and now some are pointing to Bible prophecies about the end times and return of Jesus to Earth.
“Panic could be heard in the voices of the residents as they recorded the discolored horizon, stirring apocalyptic fears,” Britain’s Daily Mail reported. “The crimson sky was most prominent by the port, prompting worries that a fire had got out of control.”
“I have never seen anything like this before. It really amazes me that the sky can even turn red,” one resident of Chinese port-city of Zhoushan, which neighbors Shanghai, told the Global Times.
