There's no need for the sun's trajectory to have been actually deviated; it's a miracle in itself that a whole crowd saw the sun "dance".

Clearly, at Fatima in 1917, there was no departure of the sun from its orbit, nor any other astronomical deviation. This in no way detracts from the miraculous nature of the events at Fatima: for a crowd of thousands to see an unusual solar phenomenon at the same time. This means that an unknown source caused either an optical illusion or a collective hallucination, at the same time, around the sun. This source cannot be human - no one could induce such an illusion on this scale and under these conditions - so the source of the Fatima visions is supernatural, it's God.
