  1. A miracle is when a rule of nature has been overridden. Hashgacha is when Hashem guides events within the rules of nature. This is hashgacha, not a miracle.

  2. Yehoshua D:
    Hashgacha is the general term for Hashem’s supervision of the world, and a miracle does NOT override the rules of nature, according to the Rambam.
