Background

There is some doubt about the date here because Geoffrey of Monmouth wrote it coincident with Ambrosius' death. Scholars disagree about the date of this event, suggesting either 473 or, according to Roger of Wendover, 497.

A description of the experience

Geoffrey of Monmouth -  Historia Regum Britanniae, VIII, eh. 14; Lycosthenes, Julii Obsequentis Prodigiorum Liber... per Conradum Lycosthenem Rubeaquensem integrati suae restitutus (Basel, 1552).

During these transactions at Winchester, there appeared a star of wonderful magnitude and brightness, darting forth a ray, at the end of which was a globe of fire in the form of a dragon, out of whose mouth issued forth two rays; one of which seemed to stretch out itself beyond the extent of Gaul, the other towards the Irish sea, and ended in seven lesser rays."
