from The Church Historians of England, 1854

(page 795)

In this year, truly, several people saw a sign; in appearance it was a fire: it flamed and burned fiercely in the air; it came near to the earth, and for a little time quite illuminated it; afterwards it revolved and ascended up on high, then descended into the bottom of the sea; in several places it burned woods and plains. There was no man who knew with certainty what this divined, nor what this sign signified.

In the country of Northumberland this fire showed itself; and in two seasons of one year were these demonstrations.
