What She Saw in the Sky

In a letter written by Elizabeth Haven Barlow and dated February 25, 1839, she states she saw what in the sky shortly after her expulsion from Far West, Missouri?
a.                  Three moons
b.                  Three suns
c.                   Three rainbows
d.                  Three tornadoes 
Yesterday’s answer:
a.      Jeans and a Calico shirt
I was baptized on April 10, 1842, by John Taylor, one of the apostles of the Prophet. I was baptized in a river at the end of a road which ran into it [This could have been any number of streets and the Mississippi River]. There I shed my old shirt; and donned a calico one, and a pair of jeans!
