We know from Rev 12:4 "And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth" along with Rev 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him".
The two time periods for these two events has been narrowed down; the second event, the casting down of the old serpent has been substantially narrowed down to a specific time frame. The first event, the one third thrown down has been plotted in a period of time using the available evidence that has not completely deteriorated over time.
In the late 1800's astronomers were focusing their telescopes and attention to Mars. Astronomers such as: Rev. Pietro Angelo Secchi, (1818-78); Giovanni Virginio Schiaparelli, (1835-1910); Percival Lowell, (1855-1916); William Henry Pickering, (1858-1938); Andrew Ellicott Douglass, (1867-1962); Edward Emerson Barnard, (1857-1923); William Wallace Campbell, (1862-1938); William Huggins, (1824-1910); Camille Flammarion, (1842-1925); Eugine Michael Antoniadi, (1870-1944); Henri Perrotin, (1845-1904); to list just a few. What the astronomers of the late 1800's were discovering was canals on Mars, first called canali by Rev. Secchi in 1858 and Giovanni Schiaparelli in 1877. Many of these astronomers verified the canals and also noted seasonal changes on the surface that corresponded with the melting of the polar ice (see Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) Science Investigation or The Encyclopedia of Astrobiology, Astronomy, and Spaceflight a simple encyclopedia with an alphabetic index or NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day, Mars Then and Now.
In 1888 Perrotin described having observed dramatic changes in a feature, named "Libya" by Schiaparelli, and assumed to be a continental land mass. "Clearly visible two years ago, it no longer exists today," and "By 1892, Perrotin had switched his attention to watching for "bright projections" on Mars, reporting three in the summer of that year" according to the information from the The Encyclopedia of Astrobiology, Astronomy, and Spaceflight, in particular see the graphic drawing by Eugine Antoniadi of the Elysium region of Mars. In 1894 Percival Lowell noted a tawny colored cloud of dust that extended over 300 miles and Percival Lowell from his research estimated the temperature on the surface of Mars to be an average of 48F noted from NASA MOLA Science. Percival Lowell's
temperature was later verified by the Russian Mars 3 lander. In 1971 the Mars 3 recorded temperature readings on the surface of Mars "the coldest point proved to be the north polar cap, where the temperature was -110C (-166F); elsewhere the values ranged
from -93C to 13C (-135-55F),"
According to a Mars data web page, "Recent observations with the Hubble Space Telescope have revealed that the conditions during the Viking missions may not have been typical. Mars' atmosphere now seems to be both colder and dryer than measured by the Viking landers". The Space Telescope Science Institute (STSci) report, MARS: A Cooler, Clearer World, states the fact several times that the Mars surface temperature has changed since Viking landing missions, constantly dropping in temperature. Fact, the Viking 1 landed on Mars on July 20, 1976, continuous recording data until Nov. 11, 1982, over six years of recordings. An excellent web site for Mars information is the European Space Agency.
In 1888 drastic changes in surface features were observed, 1892 bright projections were observed, 1894 tawny dust cloud was observed and by 1909 no signs of the canals existed according to Antoniadi.
|"In 1899 drastic changes in surface features were observed, 1892 bright projections were observed, 1894 tawny dust cloud was observed and by 1909 no signs of the canals existed according to Antoniadi.
"In 1899, the International Peace Conference was held in The Hague to elaborate instruments for settling crises peacefully, preventing wars and codifying rules of warfare. It adopted the Convention for the Pacific Settlement of International Disputes and established the Permanent
Court of Arbitration, which began work in 1902".
In 1908 was the Tunguska explosion, later investigations reveal radiation reading at ground zero, "the source of radioactivity is in the ground", G. Longo et. al, 2000.
The League of Nations was "established in 1919 under the Treaty of Versailles" and and "ceased its activities after failing to prevent the Second World War". Revelations 13:12 "the first beast, whose death-stroke was healed", (KJV).
In 1934 the Atomic Bomb was patented, September 1, 1939 Germany invaded Poland. January 1, 1942 the United Nations was formed and on June 26, 1945 the United Nations Charter was signed, then ratified on October 24, 1945. Revelations 13:13 "And he doeth great signs, that he should even make fire to come down out of heaven upon the earth in the sight of men." 1908 was the Tunguska explosion, August 6, 1945 the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, August 9, 1945 the bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. Revelations 13:14 "And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by reason of the signs which it was given him to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who hath the stroke of the sword and lived." Revelations 13:4 "and they worshipped the dragon, because he gave his authority unto the beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? And who is able to war with him?"
The National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICA) the first ever recorded sighting of an aerial unknown was by Kenneth Arnold, June 24, 1947. This does not include unknown airships depicted in art over the ages or unknown airships at the turn of the 1800's and early 1900's.
In 1954 National Geographic sponsored a Mars observation project at Lamount-Hussey Obervator, Bloemfontein, South Africa on Naval Hill an altitude of 4888 feet. From this National Geographic sponsored expedition 20,000 pictures were taken of Mars. The National
Geographic published the article September 1955, pages 427 to 436 written by Dr. E.C. Slipher. The picture in the National Geographic article reveals the areas mentioned as blue-green seasonal change. These observations were in September 1954, two years before the 1956 planet wide dust storm. An interesting fact, of all the observations of Mars over the years, even back to the late 1800's never was there mention of Valles Marineris (Valley of the Mariners). Valles Marineris
was never part of the canal renderings of the 1800's to early 1900's astronomers. Valles Marineris was not observed in 1954 in the project that resulted in observations of seasonal changes in 20,000 photographs.
According to a published article, NASA SP-441: VIKING ORBITER VIEWS OF MARS, M.H. Carr, W.A. Baum, K.R. Blasius, G.A. Briggs, J.A. Cutts, T.C. Duxbury, R. Greeley, J. Guest, H. Masursky, B.A. Smith, L.A. Soderblom, J. Veverka, J.B. Wellman :
-The canyons do not form a well integrated drainage system
-Indicate downward subsidence of canyon floors along faults
-Impact craters, which are so numerous on other Martian terrain's, are scarce within Valles Marineris
-No evidence of flow of water has been found within Valles Marineris, although some channels on the adjacent upland are abruptly truncated by steep canyon walls
-Because these canyons are poorly linked with one another, and their floors not a regularly graded slope, they could not have formed as water drainage features.
There was a planet wide dust storm on Mars in 1956, then again in 1971 and seen again in 2001. The Mariner 9 satellite waited until the cloud storm of 1971 had subsided somewhat to activate the camera. At that time Mariner 9 recorded the canyon Valles Marineris whereas the canyon had never been viewed as a canyon prior to Mariner 9. The canals had been viewed, surface changes had been viewed but never a massive canyon over 4000 km long from west to east near the Martian equator. Mariner 9's images reveal a barren planet, with no apparent seasonal changes except for the polar caps Mars resembled a devastated planet.
In summary, from 1858 to 1909 Mars had observable features that astronomers attributed to intelligence. After 1909 the surface of Mars showed drastic changes from the first observed tawny cloud of over 300 feet tall in 1894 to planet wide dust storm in 1956. In around 1947 was the first major records of UFO data, * UFO Database. The charted data reveals peak sightings in 1947, 1953, 1955, late 1957 and 1974. The largest amount of sightings being in the years 1947, 1953 and 1955. Anomaly, UFO and abduction web sites have proliferated the internet in resent years. Israel became an independent nation in 1948. So the throwing down of the old deceiving serpent can be narrowed down to the years between 1909 and 1971.
These entities thrown down by Michael are not from earth and lost the war in the heavens, making them the Losers. These entities could be called Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (EBE) or Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI) or Bad Extraterrestrial (BET).
