The meteor that streaked across the Russian Skies was reported as the largest in 100 hundred years. Its size was approximately 70 feet across, and was traveling at between 14,000 and 30,000 MPH. When it exploded mid-air, the blast was equivalent to 30X a Hiroshima size explosion. Up to 1200 people were injured (and I am sure many more animals) and damages will be in the billions of Rubles.
Within a 24 hour period around this event, fireballs were also reported in Cuba, British Columbia, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Japan, with associated sonic booms and witnessed fragmentation. The experts keep insisting that these events were unrelated. How they know that is not clear. The issue is becoming more complex as today, February 17, 2013, two MORE fireballs have been seen in Florida and over the San Francisco Bay Area.
As a matter of fact, these types of events are a lot more frequent than most people think. On average the American Meteor Society routinely handles 300-500 reports monthly. However, within the last 30 days they have 895 reports and a significant increase in the reports of sonic booms and fragmentation being seen with witnessed fireballs.
While we can accept that these fireballs may not be orphans of 2012 DA14, we cannot accept that these events are not related. This many fireballs in this short period of time is related if we are entering some sort of space debris field.
Folks, we are getting a bit concerned here for several reasons. This increase in activity has been predicted by at least three separate sources or groups as a matter of record. The FarSight Institute folks made these predictions for this time period nearly two years ago. Cliff High from Half Past Human made similar predictions starting first in 2003 and then again earlier last fall. Also, we have the predictions that were made and continue to be discussed by Nancy Lieber at ZetaTalk.
These current real events represent a convergence of elements that stretch the argument that these events are purely co-incidental beyond credibility, in our opinion. It simply is too many events concentrated in a very short time window. It has raised our interest, in particular, because of a lack of reporting all of these items collectively in MSM.
This is further disturbing because near future events showing up on the WebBot project suggest we may be experiencing similar events in late March and these events could precipitate a major trans-global coastal event sometime between late March and early April.
Given all of these factors, we are now suggesting that we may all need to be prepared (although we are not sure how we should prepare) for possibly more of the events within the next 4-8 weeks. A major interesting result of 2012 DA 14 was there appeared to be a large EMF/gravity wave associated with the event. That meant that cars, appliances, and electrical sources were briefly affected by the passing of these fireballs. This does suggest that if we are entering into a “field” of these meteors/asteroids that there could be major disruptions of communications and power grids. In addition, there have been some concerns being voiced in certain technical disciplines about damage and disruption to communication satellites in orbit. Finally, given the predictions of major global coastal events, a large body slamming into a major ocean at the speeds being measured in the objects that have already “buzzed” us could definitely trigger major tsunami events.
The other concern we have is that there was no pre-warning to any of these events, with the exception of 2012 DA14. The question becomes did the USAF Space Weather Program, NASA, JPL, Russian, and ESA tracking facilities not “see” these objects or did they see them and simply have not reported them? Either answer to that question is extremely disturbing to say the least. The age old question raises its ugly head, if we WERE headed into a real storm that will have major consequences, would we be told in advance or would we be “on our own”? Lot’s floating on the conspiracy sites, but we are not paying any attention to these speculations. The FACTS that are unfolding though do suggest something is happening and it just might be time to recheck all those emergency supplies and “bug-out” kits. We will certainly post more as we get it.
