“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that this day should overtake you like a thief.” 1 Thessalonians 5:4

One point that keeps cropping up in the rebuttal videos against the Revelation 12 Sign is trying to use the constellation of Berenice’s Hair instead of Leo. The Revelation 12 Sign that will form on September 23, 2017 has Leo as the crown above the head of Virgo. Those who argue against the Sign say the crown should be Coma Berenice in that it has 12 stars and even one is referred to as a diadem. If that is the case, this would reduce the Sign to an ordinary event since Leo would not be involved, which is more unique. What makes the Sign of Revelation 12 with Leo so unique is the positioning of the three wandering stars (planets) among the 9 principle stars of Leo to make 12. This is what helps make the Sign a once in 7,000 year event. The Berenice’s Hair argument would reduce it to nearly a one in 12 year event—pretty ordinary.
The trouble is Coma Berenice is a modern constellation taking the place of the original. Berenice was the wife of Ptolemy lll in the 3rd century BC and she had dedicated her hair to the temple because of her husband’s safe return from war. However, her hair was stolen from the temple and was then said to have been placed in the heavens where the constellation is to this day. The trouble is that history has recorded the name of the original and true constellation as simply Coma.
