Is it possible for the sun to rise from the West and for the moon to be swallowed by the sun relatively quickly?
Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, did make this prediction! New Scientific evidences in text and video, from Western scientific sources, about the planet Earth will turn upside down, - as it already did turn and modify its rotation before during the ice age and before, - which will cause for the Sun to rise from the West, was added.
There are several events that could happen that would cause for the planet earth to turn upside down, such as the sun's galactic alignment with the center of the Milky Way Galaxy causing it produce excessive solar flares that would alter the earth's normal rotation around its own axle, a super volcano erupting, the moon's renegading from earth's orbit, or the earth getting hit or pounded by an asteroid or a number of asteroids:

What are the Signs of the Hour?
Let us look at what Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said about the Signs of the Hour:
Narrated Abu Huraira: "Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established (1) till two big groups fight each other whereupon there will be a great number of casualties on both sides and they will be following one and the same religious doctrine, (2) till about thirty Dajjals (liars) appear, and each one of them will claim that he is Allah's Apostle, (3) till the religious knowledge is taken away (by the death of Religious scholars) (4) earthquakes will increase in number (5) time will pass quickly, (6) afflictions will appear, (7) Al-Harj, (i.e., killing) will increase, (8) till wealth will be in abundance ---- so abundant that a wealthy person will worry lest nobody should accept his Zakat, and whenever he will present it to someone, that person (to whom it will be offered) will say, 'I am not in need of it, (9) till the people compete with one another in constructing high buildings, (10) till a man when passing by a grave of someone will say, 'Would that I were in his place (11) and till the sun rises from the West. So when the sun will rise and the people will see it (rising from the West) they will all believe (embrace Islam) but that will be the time when: (As Allah said,) 'No good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before, nor earned good (by deeds of righteousness) through its Faith.' (6.158) And the Hour will be established while two men spreading a garment in front of them but they will not be able to sell it, nor fold it up; and the Hour will be established when a man has milked his she-camel and has taken away the milk but he will not be able to drink it; and the Hour will be established before a man repairing a tank (for his livestock) is able to water (his animals) in it; and the Hour will be established when a person has raised a morsel (of food) to his mouth but will not be able to eat it." (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Afflictions and the End of the World, Volume 9, Book 88, Number 237)"
Prophecies #4, 5, 7, 8 and 9 are ones that we are directly living today:
1- Earthquakes are increasing.
2- Time is passing by quicker through our fast-paste life-styles.
3- Murders from gangs and thugs, organized criminal organizations that deal mostly with drugs and weapons, and the increasing number of wars and conflicts is increasing the number of killings.
4- The world today is much wealthier than what it used to be 1,500 years ago during the times of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.
5- The world today is competing in building sky-scrapers. Not only countries today take much pride in how many huge buildings their major cities have, and how artistic they look, but major cities and countries are also competing on who has the tallest tower in the world.
According to Islam, the eleven Signs above must occur in order for the Hour to come. Sign #9 above fascinates me. How can an illiterate Bedouin living in the middle of the desert, 1,400 years ago, like Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, know that we today will have high buildings and sky scrapers?
As to the rising of the sun from the west in Prophecy #11, it will occur exactly when the Universal "Cosmic Crunch" occurs, because as the Prophet said, life will end when it occurs (it will be too late to believe in Islam). It will be the time when:
"The Day that We roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books (completed),- even as We produced the first creation, so shall We produce a new one: a promise We have undertaken: truly shall We fulfil it. (The Noble Quran, 21:104)"
"The Day ye shall see it, every mother giving suck shall forget her suckling-babe, and every pregnant female shall drop her load (unformed): thou shalt see mankind as in a drunken riot, yet not drunk: but dreadful will be the Wrath of God. (The Noble Quran, 22:2)"

The rising of the sun from the west will be the last Sign to occur, and it will be the "too late" Sign to occur for the disbelievers to convert to Islam, because ti will come very swift and it will mark the end of our life and the beginning of the End of Times and the Dooms Day. As Prophet Muhammad said: "So when the sun will rise and the people will see it (rising from the West) they will all believe (embrace Islam) but that will be the time when: (As Allah said,) 'No good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before, nor earned good (by deeds of righteousness) through its Faith.' (6.158)", and also quoted Noble Verse 6:158 to further elaborate on this Sign:
"Are they waiting to see If the angels come to them, Or thy Lord (Himself), Or certain of the Signs Of thy Lord! The day that certain Of the Signs of thy Lord Do come, no good Will it do to a soul To believe in them then, If it believed not before Nor earned righteousness Through its Faith. Say: "Wait ye: we too Are waiting." (The Noble Quran, 6:158)"
All of the factors that will cause for the Cosmic Crunch to occur and for the sun to rise from the west will be the "certain Of the Signs of thy Lord" that will ultimately end the life of this World.
By the way, Prophet Muhammad's, peace be upon him, End of Times Sign about the sun rising from the West, and that it will be then too late for anyone to conver to Islam is quite similar to Pharaoh's story when he embraced Islam only when he was drowning, and Allah Almighty rejected his submission. Allah Almighty declared that He, the Almighty, will preserve his body as a Sign for the people. All Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone, Pharaoh's body was found! Please visit:

Western scientists proved
that the found body in one of the Pyramids was drowned and they strongly believe he is Pharaoh.
