    Joshua's Sun

    "On the day the Lord gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the Lord in the presence of Israel: "O sun, stand still over Gibeon, O moon, over the Valley of Aijalon." So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day."
    Joshua 10:12-13

    In the Book of Joshua, chapter 10, verses 12 and 13, it states:

    10:12: Then spoke Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD gave the Amorites over to the men of Israel and he said in the sight of Israel "Sun, stand thou still at Gibcon and thou Moon in the valley of Ai'jalon."
    10:13: And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.

    In fact, many interpretations were introduced to explain this miracle. However, I have my own new interpretation that is based on Attiyah's Sun Theory.


    ===============



    Attiyah's Sun theory has many hypotheses:


    1) The bulk of the diffuse daylight is generated in the ionosphere by the same mechanisms that generate the polar auroras.


    2) The solar X-rays and ultraviolet light are the primary origin for the energy needed to drive the global, continuous occurrence of the daytime auroral activities.


    3) The global daytime auroras are capable of forming the so-called auroral corona which is the primary source of the daytime beam radiation.
    4) The Sun always forms a far glowing background for the daytime auroral corona.


    5) The formation of the auroral corona and concentration of its light, are both intimately related to the magnetic zenith effect.


    6) The earthward spread of the light from the magnetic zenith is intimately governed by the phenomenon of aspect sensitivity.



    N.B.
    I consider that the auroral radiant point is different from the auroral corona. Accordingly, the auroral radiant point is a matter of perspective i.e., an illusive convergence similar to the rail-road track effect, whereas the auroral corona is a real convergence of light caused by the magnetic zenith effect. However, the radiant point and auroral corona are generally concomitant and optically coincident.

    The interpretation of Joshua's standing Sun




    So, how do I interpret the Joshua's prolonged day?


    I consider that on the day when Joshua was involved in fighting the Amorites, there was an exceptionally great magnetic storm accompanied by an exceptionally auroral storm. The displays of that very great auroral storm stayed tremendously bright forming an auroral corona that remained hung overhead in the sky shining for few hours after sunset.

    In short, the day of Joshua's battle against the Amorites synchronized with an exceptionally great auroral storm that showed a very bright auroral corona that lasted shining for a long while after sunset. Really, the appearance of the bright auroral corona looks like the sunburst.
