ABSTRACT

The work includes a mathematical model of the phenomenon seen by the witnesses on 13th October, 1917 in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, and similar phenomena recorded in recent years throughout the world, known as the “miracle of the Sun”, allowing for qualitative and quantitative analysis of the phenomenon. The work includes a mathematical model of a cloud of the vibrating charged ice crystals. The paper shows the dynamic optical effects associated with the passage of light through such a vibrating medium. It also presents the simplest solution to the model in the form of graphs, which have been compared with the graphs obtained from the analysis of the amateur observations of the phenomenon in question.
