Many news outlets report on the major failure of a pre-announced miracle of Sathya Sai Baba in Puttaparthi October 4th, when his appearance on the face of the moon did not occur and the moon was invisble in Puttaparthi anyhow due to cloud coverage! This remarkable Sai Baba PR blunder - started when Anil Kumar made an announcement of a miracle that evening to be seen from the Sathya Sai Airport, has since led to a flood of e-mails and cellphone calls between devotees worldwide, and brought well over 7000 extra visitors within a few days to the blogs of Robert Priddy and Barry Pittard, where the moon darshan and the back-up by devotees is shown and discussed.

Devotees have circulated by e-mail faked pictures purporting to show Sai Baba as he allegedly appeared on the moon and various others around the world have posted to report that they have seen this on various dates. One has to be amazed either at the power of their imagination or self-programming or their sheer naivety of Sai fanatics, when no one else throughout the entire world has evidently seen any such thing.
