Green and Blue Fireball Over Acton, California - January 10, 2010
Date: January 10, 2010 Time: 9:40 PM Pacific City: Acton Province/State: California
Didn't fall apart but made a perfect circle with a small after tail for a very short distance.
Brighter than the Moon. It was more like a sudden explosion in the night sky but did show a
slight direction from the North East toward the South
Bluish/Green Object Falling Out Of The Sky Over San Diego California January 18, 2010
Hi, I am from San Diego California and I saw a familiar light in the sky falling. It was bluish/green and the
time was about 9:00pm, it was weird. I wonder what it was? A buddy and I were driving north bound and we noticed
this light falling extremely fast? Please let me know if you find more details.
January 19, 2010 Fireball
This bright fireball occurred at 10:25 PM MST over eastern Colorado.
This meteor was not associated with any known shower. I received several
witness reports from Denver to Colorado Springs, generally reporting a slow
moving, green or blue meteor. These colors are commonly seen with slow fireballs.
Twilight meteor reported Monday in Maryland - January 19, 2010
The Tuesday morning mail contained the following report from a reader in Reisterstown,
Md. H and his wife spotted a bright meteor to their south after sunset on Monday evening.
The crescent moon and planet Jupiter were visible in the southwest.
Large Ball Of Fire Falling From The Sky Over New Hope Pennsylvania - January 19, 2010
Hi Brian, My friend and I were driving South on Route 202 in New Hope on 1/18/10, around
5:40 p.m., when all of a sudden I noticed a large ball of fire falling from the sky directly
in front of us. It was moving quickly and seemed to burn out before hitting the ground. At
first I thought it was a plane and then I realized it was too small, but definitely too large
to be a falling star.

Possible fireball sighted in night sky around Bozeman - January 29, 2010
But while no fiery jetliner ever touched down at Gallatin Field airport, a white fireball, a
type of meteor, was reported over Torrance, Calif., at 8:13 p.m. MST, traveling southeast,
according to the American Meteor Society's 2010 Fireball Sightings Table.
Timperley, South Manchester-31st January 2010
The object was moving relatively fast i¡¯d say it travelled towards Center of manchester
(about 8 miles in 2mins) but had an orange aura around it as well as a tail. My first thought
was definately chinese lantern but it was impossible at the rate it was travelling. The tail
was obvious as it was quite far behind the object as well as an orange glow at the front end
of where it was travelling.
Fireball seen over Ireland - February 3, 2010
Tommy Moore from Astronomy Ireland said a space rock collided with the earth¡¯s atmosphere at about 6pm,
showering debris over many parts of the country.
Mr Moore said: ¡°A major explosion happened in the sky over Ireland. We think it¡¯s a fireball, that¡¯s a rock
from space the earth has slammed into and they burn up as huge shooting stars. This one appears to have lit
up the whole country. The phones here in Astronomy Ireland are going crazy.¡±

METEOR: Show 'like something out of Armageddon'
'Fireball' lights up Irish sky - 4 February 2010
A fireball, thought to be a meteor, was spotted in the sky by people from all over the island of Ireland at about
1800 GMT on Wednesday
"It was a very bright green, with an orange trail coming from it.
"It was travelling at fantastic speed, very high up in the sky, and it was heading north.
"It then went behind these black clouds over the Sperrins, towards Dungiven, then there was this large orange flash,
so I'm not sure if it landed somewhere around there.
"It was quite a spectacle," she said.
"It is pretty unusual that you would get one that is so widely seen, and that is so bright."
Mr Moseley said there were "only about half a dozen" recorded meteorite falls in Ireland.
"The last one was in 1999, and the last one in the North was in County Derry in 1969," he said.

Large White Ball With Long Tail Seen in Night Sky - February 6, 2010 B
On the night of February 6, 2010 at 10:55 PM I looked out my window in Suitland, Maryland and saw a
large white ball with a long tail on it flying across the sky.
Meteorite Hits Mexico Leaving 30 Meter Crater in Ahuazotepec Municipality - February 11, 2010
The precise impact area of the meteorite was in a relatively unpopulated area and hit around 6.30pm local time,
Mexican media said.
The Ahuazotepec, Mexico meteorite impact was so massive it broke windows in homes many kilometers from the
epicenter and people reported buildings swaying and mass confusion. Other reports said the Mexico meteorite
impact partially damaged a road and a bridge.
The Mexican military was called in to lock down the area where the apparent space rock slammed into the ground
Mexico: What Crashed in Hidalgo? - February 12, 2010
According to latest reports, the meteorite caused a bridge to collapse in the municipality of Cuautepec
(Hidalgo) without any material or human losses reported.
The stories agree that the "fireball" allegedly witnessed by residents of municipalities in Hidalgo and
Puebla had a cosmic origin. However, it was impossible to record it or photograph it. The bolide crossed
the atmosphere in fractions of a second. A loud sound was heard first, followed by a reddish light.
Thousandths of seconds later, no one knew what became of it.
When advised of these reports, Daniel Flores, a researcher for the UNAM Astronomical Institute and an
expert in space debris and meteoritics, said that the so-called "fireball" has all the traits of a bolide,
that is to say, a mass of cosmic matter than, as it moves between the planets, eventually crosses the
atmosphere in a matter of seconds without reaching the ground, unlike meterorites that do crash.
Blue Green Object Falling From The Sky Over Gardena California - February 14, 2010
I saw a bluish/green object falling from the sky in Gardena, California on February 14, 2010 at around 6:30pm.
AURORAS AND A FIREBALL - Feb. 15, 2010
This week, the brightest auroras of the year have been surging around the Arctic Circle. Never one to
waste a photo-op, English astrophotographer Pete Lawrence boarded a "Northern Lights flight" on Feb. 15th,
and this is what he saw 37,000 ft over the Shetland Islands:
"The display was awesome and completely occupied the view, illuminating the fuselage and clouds below us
in an eerie green light," says Lawrence. "At one point, a brilliant fireball streaked down towards the horizon.
If you're wondering why there are two fireball trails, the main one was so bright that it left a noticeable
reflection in the plane window. What a night!"
Is this incredible thing in heavens a sign from God? - February 17, 2010
'The truth is, we're still struggling to understand what this means'
While scientists don't think it's a comet, they're not exactly sure of the precise origin of the incredible
object soaring some 90 million miles from Earth, snapped just a few weeks ago by the Hubble Space Telescope.
"I've seen thousands of astronomical images over my career, but this is one of the few absolute jaw-droppers:
A flying X-pattern with trailing streamers," said Ray Villard, a contributing writer to Discovery News. "Whatever
it is, nothing quite like it has ever before been seen in the heavens."
"We're still trying to really figure out what it is," University of Arizona planetary scientist Jim Scotti
told National Geographic. Scotti is on a team observing the object from the Kitt Peak National Observatory
Some think the mysterious space object has a shape similar to that of a gunship depicted in the 1984 movie,
"The Last Starfighter."
"The truth is, we're still struggling to understand what this means," comet expert David Jewitt at UCLA told
Britain's Daily Mail. "It's most likely the result of a recent collision between two asteroids."
The discovery of the object, officially known as "P/2010 A2," is sparking some chatter concerning a possible biblical
message regarding end-time scenarios, as well as other theories.
Asteroids don't outgas and trail streamers when 90 mllion miles from Earth, but comets often do!
Since it has the orbit of a main-belt asteroid and yet shows the tail of a comet, it is listed as a main-belt comet.
It appears to have come to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) around the start of December 2009, about a
month before it was discovered.
With an aphelion (furthest distance from the Sun) of only 2.6 AU, P/2010 A2 spends all of its time inside of the
frostline at 2.7 AU. Beyond the frostline volatile ices are generally more common. However, although no water vapor
or other gases have been detected, it is not yet possible to rule out the scenario that the tail of P/2010 A2 was
generated via active outgassing from sublimation of ices hidden beneath the crust.
What was the orbit of the thing that hit it and caused the outgassing?
Meteor er Augsburg? - Fireball over Germany 04 Feb 2010
Bavaria, Southern Germany - A night shift worker in west Augsburg, observed an
object which might have been a meteorite fall from the sky at 3:04 A.M. local
time (CET) and burn itself out before it hit the ground. The appearance, angle
and velocity of the phenomenon rule out the possibility that the flaming object
could have been man-made leaving out fireworks as an explanation.
Peanut-sized meteor lights up London sky - February 20, 2010
And what sailed over the city, he said, was likely no bigger than a peanut
but hit the atmosphere at 15 to 20 kilometres per second.
January 19, 2010 Fireball
This bright fireball occurred at 10:25 PM MST over eastern Colorado.
This meteor was not associated with any known shower. I received several
witness reports from Denver to Colorado Springs, generally reporting a slow
moving, green or blue meteor. These colors are commonly seen with slow fireballs.
Fireball lights up sky north of Winnipeg - 25/02/2010
He said based on reports, this bolide was probably the size of a baseball or cabbage. It's large size means it has
more of a chance of leaving a meteorite behind.
"It looked like something out of a disaster movie," said Witnicki.
The fireball was about 30 kilometres up in the air if people could see it burning, said Young, and went eastward
towards the horizon, probably far away from the Winnipeg area.
In Italy Fireballs Flame Through February Skies - 28 Feb 2010
Enormous fireball explodes over the sky of Hungary, Slovakia and Czech Republic - 02 Mar 2010
A mysterious fireball was seen in the sky on the night of 28th Feb. It was running through northern
Hungary and made a huge blast and flash above eastern Slovakia.
The fireball was also seen in Plzen, Czech Republic, which is more than 600kms away.
NATO radars did not detect anything.
Night becomes day as fireball lights up skies over Hungary - 01 Mar 2010
On Sunday night people noticed flashes and strong light phenomena in Miskolc, Kazincbarcika, Putnok, and Ozd.
Meteor seen from Hungary and Czech Republic probably exploded over Slovakia - 02 Mar 2010
A crater should be near the village of Bretka located in the eastern part of the country. It should have been caused by a meteorite
that fell on a Sunday night. This was the first information from a reader on the website Aktuality.sk.
Eastern Slovakia lit up by loud meteor explosion and shockwave - 02 Mar 2010
Inhabitants from the Slovak town of Ko?ice were frightened Sunday night by a bizzare light in the sky and a loud
explosion followed by a shock wave. According to astronomers apparently an object from space collided with the Earth
and shortly before impact most likely exploded in the atmosphere.
"It is most likely that Earth encountered an interplanetary object about half a meter or a meter in diameter" said
according to Slovakian server SME.sk Drahomir Chochol from the Astronomical institute of the Slovak academy of sciences
(SAV) in Tatranska Lomnice. (read more on SME.sk)
Fireball Over Norway - 03 Mar 2010
A bluish green fireball flew over the bright sky in the East - and the Southern sky on Tuesday,
at almost quarter past eight in the evening. The entire event lasted 4-5 seconds.
This was a super powerful meteorite, and it could have fallen in Norway.
Possible Meteor Citing Near Hudson - 04 Mar 2010
HUDSON, Wis. - There are two meteor showers happening in the sky this week and one
of the fiery rocks may have landed just across the river near Hudson.
People living east of the city saw bright flashes and a burning object fall from the sky.
Museum investigation: 'Probably a rock, not meteorite' - March 05, 2010
The object hit the roof of the home about 4pm on Thursday in the north-eastern
Perth suburb of Beechboro.
SCIENTISTS investigating claims a meteor fragment the size of a cricket ball
collided into a WA house have confirmed it was almost certainly a rock.
Perth Observatory said it had received a ¡§couple of reports¡¨ on Thursday night
from people phoning to say they had seen a light in the sky.
¡§At this stage no one seems to be able to put it all together, but if it was
a meteor it belongs to the WA Government, observatory astronomer Ralph Martyn said.
Loud sound that rattled windows possibly a sonic boom or meteor - March 9, 2010
The apparent sonic boom happened just before 5 p.m. and affected the area southwest of
Shreveport to around Vidalia.
¡§Looking at the path of the reports, there¡¦s a definite linear path,¡¨ said Don Wheeler,
a meteorologist at Louisiana Delta Community College.
Amateur astronomer in Georgia snaps picture of what may be a meteor that startled area
residents on Monday B?
A meteor hurtling through the atmosphere faster than the speed of sound likely caused
the sonic boom that startled many north Louisiana residents late Monday afternoon.
The apparent sonic boom happened just before 5 p.m. and affected the area southwest of
Shreveport to around Vidalia.
he amateur astronomer and lifelong weather watcher snapped a photo of the noctilucent
cloud that likely formed when water molecules surrounded meteor dust particles stirred
up when a meteor moved through the atmosphere.
Wheeler said he received a call Wednesday from a Bunkie resident who claims she saw a
grey mass with no flames moving through the sky about the same time Monday.
The lack of flames could mean the meteor didn¡¦t burn and reached the ground, likely
somewhere in a low-traffic, wooded area, Wheeler said.
Some Memphis residents also reported seeing a gray mass hurtling through the sky late
Meteors put on cosmic show over Derry - March 9, 2010
A suspected meteor shower lit up the night skies over Derry at the weekend.
The celestial objects were spotted shooting across the sky in the early hours of Sunday
morning by Derry man Niall Smith who says he saw the meteors as he drove up Brookhill
at around 1230am.
" There were six of them in total," he told the Journal yesterday.
"They were bright orange almost red, like balls of flames burning with a tail behind them"
Update: Rare fireball puts on spectacular show - 10 Mar 2010 C?
Hudson-area residents lucky enough to have been looking at the stars sometime before 8 p.m.
Wednesday, March 3, were treated to what will no doubt be a once-in-a-lifetime sight.
"I could see the actual fire in a ball. It was very good-sized -- and it was totally quiet,"
Judge said when contacted by the Star-Observer, after reporting the sighting online.
Judge said the fireball traveled almost directly west at an altitude of what she thought
wasn't more than a few hundred feet.
It disappeared over her field, Judge said, "and then the rumble came and the turkeys went crazy."
She was referring to the thunder-like sound that followed the meteor, as reported by numerous
Star-Observer online readers.
Judge said the ball was red and yellow in color.
It didn't have a tail, she said, and appeared to be a couple of feet in diameter.
"When it hit the atmosphere it just lit everything up," Waterhouse said. "As it was crossing
over you could see it was starting to break up. There were five or six tails all grouped together,
flashing different colors, red out front and kind of bluish and white through the tails."
Waterhouse said he watched it perhaps two seconds before it dissipated.
"I thought for sure it landed in the cities somewhere," he said. "It just seemed incredibly close."
He said it was perhaps 30 seconds later that he heard soft rumbling in the distance, which he
judged to be sonic booms from when the meteor entered the atmosphere.
Dr. Eileen Korenic, an astronomy professor at UW-River Falls, said she believes people saw a meteor
from the Pi Virginids shower enter the atmosphere, judging from the many similar reports.
She said it's possible that fragments from the meteor reached the ground. But, usually, the pieces a
re so small that they're hard to find, she said.
Some fireballs are large enough to cause the air to expand when they enter the atmosphere, which
produces the thunder, according to Korenic.
"It is quite rare. It sounds like a sonic boom for some people. It can actually get that loud," she said.
Meteorite Lit Up The Sky, Fragments Found In Catamarca, Argentina - 10 Mar 2010
Some inhabitants of the Catamarcan town Fiambala (in the Northwest of Argentina) claim
to have seen a meteorite and its fragments fall last Monday night. A woman found them,
and they will now be analyzed by specialists from The National University of Catamarca.
Norma Olmedo, who lives in the area, declared today for the radio station FM Ancasti
that she filmed the fall with her cell phone which was how she was able to locate the
As she turned around, she "saw a reddish ball falling from the sky, leaving behind a
very bright trail", she declared.
She claims that on arriving in the area where she and her son believed the fireball hit
the ground, she discovered "a stone that was still glittering".
In the meantime, this morning The National University of Catamarca informed that a group
of its specialists and of those belonging to the Direction of anthropology would travel
to Fiambala in the afternoon in order to establish a report on the alleged meteorite.
March 16, 2010 Fireball
The meteor began very close to the border corner between Colorado, Kansas, and
Nebraska. It first appeared at a height of 100 km, descended at a zenith angle
of 40° and stopped burning following an intense terminal explosion at a height
of 77 km. The meteor had an average speed of 44 km/s (99,000 mph).
This map shows details of the fireball path. The actual flight path was 29 km
long, resulting in a 19 km ground path.
Fireball Streaks Through Night Sky of Western Alabama (Video) - March
Allsky meteor cameras at the Marshall Center and near Chickamauga, Ga., recorded
a fireball streaking across the sky around 11:19 p.m. CDT.
Moving at a speed of 42,500 mph -- or 12 miles per second -- the meteor burned
up approximately 20 miles up in the atmosphere. Although very bright, the meteor
was deemed not large enough to produce meteorites.
Mid-March is typically a lull period for meteor shower activity, but several
bright fireballs have recently been spotted over California, Mississippi and now
On March 19th at 11:19 Central Time, a meteoroid entered Earth's atmosphere over
the southeastern United States and disintegrated in a flash as bright as the
crescent Moon. To the human eye, it appeared to be a garden-variety fireball,
the kind that appears almost every clear night, but NASA cameras had a different
story to te
"It was first recorded at an altitude of 72.9 km (45.3 miles) and burned up at
an altitude of 32.5 km (20.2 miles)."
That's low. Most meteoroids disintegrate around 70 to 80 km high. This one held
together for a much deeper descent. "It had a lot of structural integrity. Maybe
it was a metallic object," speculates Cooke. "Based on the brightness and
velocity of the fireball, I estimate a mass of about 10 kilograms and a diameter
of ~20 centimeters - a decent size!"
Fireball shoots in from outer space - 23 Mar 2010
CHANNEL Islanders have been left baffled after what looked like a meteor flashed
across the sky on Sunday night.
The fireball was first spotted in Guernsey before hurtling over the east of
Jersey seconds later. Residents in both islands reported that the unidentified
object was moving very quickly and very low across the sky.
Jersey Met Office confirmed that it received a report from an Islander in Gorey
of what appeared to be a meteor ‘dashing very low and very fast’ across the sky
at about 10 pm on Sunday. But Jersey’s Air Traffic Control department said that
it had not detected anything on its radar.
Meteorite-like rock strikes near Rist Canyon home - March 30, 2010
Hebbert's wife, Bonnie, said she heard a loud swooshing sound late Monday night
and felt a gust of wind through the house, but she didn't think too much of it
because the log-sided home the couple shares is heated by three different
sources, including a woodstove.
Roger awoke around 5:30 this morning, though, and went outside to split wood and
found what appears to be about a 10-pound piece of rock that fell to the ground
so quickly that it created a funnel in the ground. Several smaller pieces of
rock and small holes were found nearby. The rock struck just 10 feet from the
The couple has called Colorado State University to see if researchers are
interested in looking at the rock, and they hope to find out more.
Lights In Sky Prompt Flood Of Calls In Md., Va., N.C. USA/ - March 30,
BALTIMORE -- A team of scientists is looking into what could have caused bright
lights in the sky that prompted hundreds of calls to the National Weather
Service and emergency officials.
Callers from Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina described brilliant,
streaking lights followed by an explosion-like sound around 9:45 p.m. Sunday.
One 11 News viewer in Carroll County e-mailed to say she "spotted a large
fireball in the western sky. It started out being about star brightness, then
increasingly got brighter and greener. As it got green, it had an orange
sparkling tail...We saw it go almost all the way to the ground before losing
sight of it in the trees."
A WBALTV.com visitor who was in Durham, N.C., wrote the following: "I remember
seeing something greenish and changing colors. It was leaving a trail (not sure
of the color). I never saw it hit the ground either because it faded, got
covered by trees, or burnt out."
Another wrote: "I was driving South on Interstate 83 between 9:30 and 10:00
(Sunday) night when my wife and I both saw a streaking green light fall from the
sky. It looked like a shooting star, but it was definitely falling to the ground
and not shooting across the sky."
Virginia residents from Hampton Roads to Richmond reported seeing "great balls
of fire" lighting up the sky in shades of yellow, white orange and blue.
Some described the explosion as sounding like thunder.

Meteor Blast Destroyed homes in Jakarta, confirmed by Scientist - April
--Police and astronomers are investigating Thursdays blast from a falling
object that damaged three homes in Duren Sawit, East Jakarta, which witnesses
claim was a meteorite strike.
- 23 Apr 2010
Forensics experts from the police and National Aeronautics and Space Agency
(Lapan) investigators are combing the site, with the latter saying that while
there was no conclusive proof the damage was caused by a meteorite, it was
the most likely explanation.
Lapan researcher Abdurrahman said no fragments of the projectile had been
found but the deep crater in the floor of the house, the residual heat
footprint and melted items pointed to a meteorite.
According to Thomas Djamaluddin, head of atmospheric sciences and chief of
astronomy research at Lapan, the blast released energy equal to about 50
kilotons of TNT, more than three times the force of the atomic bomb dropped
on Hiroshima, Japan, near the end of World War II.
A 9-year-old girl suffered a fatal cardiac arrest after hearing the
explosion, and shock waves damaged homes in Bones Panyula village.
UPDATE: The Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN) has confirmed that the
explosion which destroyed three houses in Durensawit, East Jakarta on
Thursday (4/29) was caused by a meteor of rock type. The blast has only left
dust with the color of a bit grayish.

"Meteorites are not remotely hot enough to ignite a fire or be on fire. This is
the stuff of movies and vivid imaginations," he said. "The brief super-heating
of a meteorite's exterior surface while plunging through the Earth's atmosphere
does not overwhelm the cold core of this object prior to atmospheric entry."

The meteor began near Eagle, Colorado. It first appeared at a height of 72 km,
descended at a zenith angle of 76o and stopped burning at a height of
51 km. The meteor had an average speed of 16 km/s (36,000 mph). This is extremely
slow for a meteor, and produced a six second long event. Witnesses reported seeing
sparkling debris as the meteor moved.

Raw Video: Meteor Caught on tape over Huntsville and Scottsboro - Jun 03,
This meteor was first picked up at an altitude of 47 miles over northwest
Huntsville, moving at a speed of 8 miles per second towards the southeast. It
was last visible northeast of Gurley at an altitude of 23 miles.
The meteor was quite bright, with an intensity rivaling that of the waxing
crescent Moon (in astronomical terms, it was about visual magnitude -8.3).
Calculations automatically performed by the tracking software indicates that
this interloper was from the main asteroid belt, moving in an orbit which
takes it more than three times Earth's distance from the Sun.

radiant of the June Lyrid shower, which is suggested by the IMO as a
"possible source", and seems to have been more active in the 1960s. I
obtained an initial velocity of 47 km/s, which is high compared with the IMO
estimate of 31 km/s (I don't know how that speed was obtained).

- Secondary Data
Six Great Quakes To Come
Had a chance to chat with Clif briefly today
about the predictive linguistics and what's ahead for the balance of this
year. For one thing, he's had time to look at the data again and nope,
although Haiti is a terrible mess, and there's some linguistic fill beginning
which could link 'diaspora' to the Haiti quake, a review of the data says no,
the diaspora/people moving about due to changing circumstances really is
The problem is that as we look at the data, there are at least six great
quakes due during calendar 2010 and possibly many more. After six, we stopped
looking - not a pretty sight. We assume you know a 'great' quake is one with
magnitude 8.0 or larger, but in a social sense, Haiti is a 'great' quake
based on extreme loss of life.
From the period (approximately) July 7th onward, the data features six
clusters of data that will be larger than the global horror that followed the
2004 tsunami. And - sad to report - the data suggests that 220-million will
be moving around just on the [american continent] which means additional
quakes can be expected this year of larger magnitude including some hints
that one will be on the US West coast.
Among the problems with predictive linguistics technology is that it's not
precise. How people use language is drifty on a good day. Although the US
quake(s) seems to be California'ish, it could be as far north as Vancouver
Island. Such is the imprecision of the data. No, can't narrow it down to the
Long Valley caldera, Yellowstone, or something as simple as that.
Cliff/Web Bot has been wrong before, especially this far out, but they have
also been correct. Meteorite/Comet impacts can create quakes, even if they
are atompheric blasts, and they can lead to a disporia due to severe climate
PUZZLING STATEMENT: OBAMA SAYS ‘LOUISIANA PURCHASE’ WILL HELP WITH THE
EARTHQUAKE IN HAWAII - ~ March 17th, 2010
URBAN SURVIVAL - Thursday March 18, 2010
That Weird Hawaii Reference by Obama
OK, this is seriously weird...I couldn't write a better Twilight Zone episode if
I had to. Last weekend in Peoplenomics, we discussed as a planning scenario
something that would 'fit' with a fair amount of linguistics. The idea was that
the Pacific tectonic plate would split on a line from Victoria to Suva, Fiji, or
it would break along a southern Japan (through Hawaii) to the Chile-Peru border
area. In either case, Hawaii could be devastated.
Now, in this 'exercise' the lead in was going to be a West Coast/US quake this
week, perhaps toughed off by the arrival of a CME:
"As bad as the situation was in LA, it was only 8-weeks, three days, and 9-hours
later than the biggest quake in Hawaii's recorded history took place. Larger
than even the March 27, 1868 Hawaii earthquake event
We now skip forward nine weeks from today:
"What is described as the biggest earthquake in the history of Hawaii quake was
the largest ever recorded. It's magnitude was an astounding 9.9. But what made
the quake even more outrageous - besides sending massive tsunami toward
California, the result of both the shock as well as undersea landslides.
The devastation was not confined to Hawaii. In addition to the tsunami that
killed several thousand in California, and thousands more in Mexico, the quake
set off sympathetic quakes at 7.8 and 8.3 in Panama, damaging the Canal, as well
as a 9.1 in southern Peru. Causalities in Lima, Peru were placed in the tens of
thousands. As many as 75,000 died in Hawaii from structure failures, road
destruction and interisland tsunamis.
Worse than even all these things was a newly evolving string of quakes in the
5.0 to 7.2 range that began to pop off several times a day along a rough 11,100
mile long line from Kagoshima in southern Japan, to the east passing 6 miles
northeast of Kailua on Oahu, bisecting Molokai, and at its closest, within
8/10ths of a mile of the Haleakala National Park on Maui and then heading
southeast from 35 miles northeast of Hilo on the big island of Hawaii, but more
importantly just 60 miles from Mount Kilauea and 65 from Mauna Loa. Nature has
been building the weakened path of least resistance for eons. But only since the
Boxing Day Tsunami a few years back had the break in the Pacific Plate become a

CHINA HAS ‘TEST’ MEETING GRAINS GOAL, PREMIER SAYS (UPDATE2) - March 26,
China’s leaders have prioritized food security to ensure that the world’s most
populous nation has adequate supplies, maintaining stockpiles of about 40
percent of annual consumption. Rivers in the southwest have plunged to record
low levels, according to the Ministry of Water Resources. About 18 million
people are short of drinking water, Xinhua reported.
“The cold weather and drought are definitely having an impact on China’s
wheat crop,” Jay O’Neil, an adviser to the U.S. Grains Council, said by
phone from Shandong today. Still, the grain market believes China has a “very
good” quantity of wheat stockpiles, which may be used to offset any possible
reduction in this year’s harvest, O’Neil said.
Wheat futures in Chicago have dropped 14 percent this year to $4.6825 a bushel
today amid rising stockpiles in the U.S., the biggest exporter. The world is
“awash with wheat,” Luke Mathews at Commonwealth Bank of Australia, said on
March 12. Strong gluten wheat futures on China’s Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange
have risen 7.8 percent this year.
The cold weather and drought are also symptomatic of impact events, possibly
multiple ones like the one that hit over Indonesia on 8 October

"Somewhere around Jan. 18th, several objects starting appearing on many of the EIT images both ahead and
behind. Here are a few images but there are many, many more images to research other than what I have
UPDATE: (2cents opinion after the first 107 pages of this thread.)
OK...I have read every single word in this entire thread since the beginning as well as looked at every
image posted or linked...watched all videos except the few music videos posted...
I have done my own research while the commited few have done an excellent job manipulating images and making
videos...thanks for all you've done (you know who you are)
First read this short description of the equipment taking these images.
Image of the Sun, taken by the SECCHI Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUVI) on the STEREO Behind observatory.
The 195 Angstrom bandpass is sensitive to the Fe XII ionization state of iron, at a characteristic temperature
of about 1.4 million degrees Kelvin. This image was produced from the STEREO space weather beacon telemetry.
Because of the high amount of compression used for the space weather beacon, the image quality is far lower
than in the final science product.
My conclusion at this point is this...obviously most of the images are compressed but as I have stated many times,
something has to be physically there to produce the compression artifacts(shapes)...that being said...I have looked
at hundreds of recent hi-res and some severly compressed images most of which come from STEREO EUVI EIT 195...most
of these objects show more often as artifacts or shapes on these images...at this point I am leaning towards large
super fast moving solid objects such as asteroids or as they're sometimes called "planetoids" with high iron content...
they are moving so fast and close to the sun that the iron is ionizing which is why we see solid looking objects with
a "green glow" around them. I believe we are starting to experience a new part of our galaxy which we haven't passed
thru for thousands and thousands of years and I think it's gonna be a bumpy ride...I also think this is why we have
been seeing the increase in space debri falling to earth and streaking across the sky...most likely the reason for
recent climate change as well (eathquakes, storms, cold, wind, sky anomalies, etc)...before you condemn me for this...
I still have an open mind for extra-solar planets as well as higher intelligence...please...please...keep on looking
and researching..........I think there's more we will be finding in the coming days. 2cents

SOMETHING HIT JUPITER ... AGAIN! 3 June 2003
Just as astronomers were telling the world that they figured out what gave
Jupiter a black eye last July, yet another cosmic impact left a mark on the
giant planet today. And this time, it was caught on video.
LOOK UP: WHAT'S IN THE SKY THIS WEEK?
Amateur astronomers Anthony Wesley in Australia and Christopher Go in the
Philippines were the first to see another amazing asteroid impact on the
gaseous planet's surface. National Geographic hosts the astronomers' video of
the collision, producing a fireball the size of the Earth in the atmosphere.
Astronomers are gobsmacked at timing of the event, so very close to the 2009
impact of a nearly mile-wide asteroid that left a scar the size of the
Pacific Ocean on Jupiter (and was also first seen by Wesley). As Space.com
notes, at the time Comet Shoemaker-Levy smacked into to Jupiter in 1994,
astronomers thought such an impact would only happen every 50 to 250 years.
If any such objects at this distance out are in Earth threatening orbits, they are
about 5 or 6 months from passing by Earth.
