The "miracle at Fatima" is arguably the most well-known apparition of the Blessed Mother. Her appearance to three shepherd children in Portugal in 1917 was, according to many witnesses, accompanied by several unexplained events, including a shared vision of the sun dancing and moving about erratically in the sky.
During her many appearances to the children, "Our Lady" bestowed upon them three prophecies.

SO DO YOU THINK WHAT THOSE CHILDREN SAW WAS REALLY MARY AND IF NOT, WHAT WAS IT AND WHY DO YOU THINK THEY SAW WHAT THEY DID? WERE TEHY LYING? AND DO YOU THINK THOSE PROPHESIES REALLY DID COME TRUE OR WAS MEANING ATTACHED TO THEM AFTER THE FACT?
Yes. The CC has declared Our Lady of Fatima as credible. That doesn't mean we have to accept on faith that it's happened - only that it is consistant with Catholic teachings to believe that it occurred and that there is evidence of a supernatural intervention. The article Apparitions/Private Revelations talks more this topic from a Catholic point of view.

I am personally very skeptical of these things. I mean many people are seeing these apparitions, signs, healings, etc.
I think that something might be happening (I a don't think that all these people are lying), but I personally don't think that these things are from the Lord because it draws attention away from Him. Every sign and miracle that is from the Lord, points to Himself.
