Always alert for this type of subject matter. Unusual celestial phenomenon as observed and occurring in conjunction with military activity of a climactic nature. Eclipse, comet, aurora, etc.
Think Isandhlwana, Gaugamela, Battle of Delhi, etc.
The Second Indo-China War, Vietnam and the mining of Haiphong harbor too?
"Powerful Solar Storm Likely Detonated Sea Mines During Vietnam War"
"On Aug. 4, 1972, the crew of a U.S. Task Force 77 aircraft flying near a naval minefield in the waters off Hon La observed 20 to 25 explosions over about 30 seconds. They also witnessed an additional 25 to 30 mud spots in the waters nearby."
AMERICAN NAVAL SEA MINES PART AND PARCEL OF THE BLOCKADE OF HAIPHONG HARBOR SPONTANEOUSLY DETONATING FOR NO KNOWN REASON!
"Destructor sea mines [DST] had been deployed here during Operation Pocket Money, a mining campaign launched in 1972 against principal North Vietnamese ports."
"There was no obvious reason why the mines should have detonated. But it has now emerged the U.S. Navy soon turned its attention to extreme solar activity at the time as a probable cause."

In this particular instance an intense solar storm of biblical scale activating the magnetic triggers of the naval sea mines much unexpected by American naval military planners. Even the very forces of nature itself in opposition to the American war effort during the Second Indo-China War? You the devoted reader to the blog decide this for yourself.
