Eclipse
        of the sun alluded to in Amos 8:9; Micah 3:6; Zech. 14:6; Joel
        2:10. Eclipses were regarded as tokens of God's anger (Joel
        3:15; Job 9:7). The darkness at the crucifixion has been
        ascribed to an eclipse (Matt. 27:45); but on the other hand it
        is argued that the great intensity of darkness caused by an
        eclipse never lasts for more than six minutes, and this darkness
        lasted for three hours. Moreover, at the time of the Passover
        the moon was full, and therefore there could not be an eclipse
        of the sun, which is caused by an interposition of the moon
        between the sun and the earth.
