The apocalypse is on its way, according to an American preacher who's unsuccessfully predicted the end of the world several times before.
Pastor Paul Begley says this morning's "Ring of Fire" eclipse – an annual occurrence – was a sign from God of the Bible prophecy unfolding.
In December last year, he claimed the world was ending as “judgement day is coming”.
And in February this year, he said doomsday was nigh after an Indonesian village flowed with blood-red water.
But undeterred from his previous wrong predictions, preacher Paul – who is infamous for outlandish prophecies – voiced his concerns over the eclipse, which occurs when the Sun and Moon cross paths, reports the Daily Express.
In a new video on his popular YouTube channel, he quoted a passage from Genesis 1:14 which describes the creation of the world.
It says: "And God said, 'Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to distinguish between the day and the night, and let them be signs to mark the seasons and days and years.'"
The doomsday evangelist reckons this is one of the signs to show God’s power over earth.
"Look at the meteorites, look at the asteroids, look at the incoming debris field, look at the radiation, the UV rays, the cosmic rays, the extreme weather conditions, the droughts," he said.
"Listen, it's going to get ugly, guys, and then shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
"When these things begin to pass, He said, 'Look up, lift up your head, for your redemption is drawing nigh.'"
But don’t don your tin foil hats yet – because unfortunately for Paul, the experts aren’t so sure he’s on to something.
A solar eclipse is a perfectly understood astronomical phenomenon that happens between two to five times a year.
Today's celestial event was only fully visible to a couple of places in northern Canada, Greenland and northern Russia.
Areas outside of the eclipse’s direct path, such as the UK, were lucky enough to enjoy a partial eclipse of the Sun.
Instead of the gorgeous Ring of Fire in the sky, Brit skygazers saw the star turn into a burning crescent.
