On an autumn day in 1917 tens of thousands of people gathered at the Cova da Iria in Portugal to witness or to disprove an anticipated supernatural event. Among them were curious locals, religious pilgrims, journalists, and academic skeptics. Every one of them experienced something overwhelming, beautiful, terrifying, and profound. Explanations for what occurred vary greatly, with individuals claiming the experience was astronomical, miraculous, meteorological, supernatural, or even hysterical. Regardless of the explanation, nobody who was present denies that something extraordinary occurred.
