loud. It sounded like a cannon or something going off," said resident Brandon

Possible Meteor Entry Southeast Of Valencia, Venezuela - 9 February 2019
At approximately 7:15PM Saturday 9th February 2019, a possible meteor entered
the Earth’s atmosphere, lighting up the sky across East-Central Venezuela.
The GOES-16 Lightning Mapper (GLM) may have caught the flash from the meteor’s
entry, as the rock burnt upon entering the atmosphere.
What is more astounding from this event is the possibility that this meteor may
have exploded within the atmosphere and meteorites may have landed in the open
fields near San Francisco de Tiznados, Venezuela.
Venezuela, similar to Trinidad and Tobago, are experiencing a fairly dry, dry
season. Hence, they too are experiencing an increased number of wild/bush fires
across the country. However, in an area very near to to location of the possible
entry location of this meteor, a fire was detected on the ground, near minutes
after the meteor was detected.

Jim Stone - February 11/12 2019
Meteor in Venezuela
I think I hit a nerve with the meteor in Venezuela
report, because ever since posting it, all donations have been blocked. The one that did "get through" was one I sent through, but a
call to people in the U.S. confirmed it is blocked and whatever systems they
have in place allowed my test to go through. This report on Alex, and possible
permanent blockage (it could just be Fundrazr) of this site, in conjunction with
several other alt media sites getting defunded in recent days means there's an
enormous push underway to wipe out all dissenting voices. Facism is doing most
of the work, but as it turns out, Alex overcame that so now they are going to
try to crush him directly with the federal government itself.
This is just to repeat and clarify a very important story.
On Saturday, a "meteor" hit Venezuela, was seen by the entire country and
sparked a large fire in the middle of a populated area. It stayed bright all the
way to the ground and flashed when it hit. Very suspiciously, this meteor did
not make the news anywhere except briefly on Sputnik news and the Venezuelan
media, which both posted video that was not from the meteor strike. Sputnik
posted the recent Mexican meteor which went dark before it hit, and the
Venezuelan media posted aerial pyrotechnic footage. Very odd.
However, people posted the actual footage of the meteor on Twitter (which I have
linked below here, ) and it perfectly matched what an incoming ballistic missile
looks like. Ballistic missiles have re-entry like any other space launch and the
warheads look like meteors coming in. What sets them
apart from normal meteors is the angle of approach, their color, plus they stay
bright until they hit and they flash when they hit, from the ordnance going
I expected the news to be dominated with a meteor that was enough to be seen for
hundreds of miles and spark fires where it came down (when has that ever
happened?) to dominate the news cycle, yet nothing happened. WHY? Why were fakes
of the event used instead of the real footage, posted by witnesses, including of
the fire where it hit? Short answer: Because if it was a missile, which it sure
looked like, and a warning shot to Maduro, someone gave an order of silence and
this will NOT be news. It will be interesting to see where Venezuela turns in
the next few days.
Note: Jim put this up, then he took it down. This was recovered from
Google before they changed it. Still looks like a meteor to me.
Update to the meteor report below:
ALL media sources are now calling it an "alleged" meteor with some speculating
it was a ballistic missile, as I have. IMPORTANT: There are many false videos of
this and even the MSM is using them. The two most notable are one where it turns
before hitting, (this was an airshow with an airplane that had sparklers) and
the other is where it looks orange and vanishes before it actually hits (this
was the Mexican meteor.) The real videos have it bright bluish green all the way
to the ground without it slowing down, and it flashes when it hits. Many others
are, as I initially speculated, suspicious this was a ballistic missile re-
entry, even the ones Yemen launches look like this, they all burn bright on re-
entry. If that is what this was, we probably won't get any daytime video of
where the impact was because it will all get expunged (the night time videos of
the flaming aftermath did get posted) but there's no way to see what actually
happened in them, other than that the area was burning afterward.
About the meteor post below: There had better be a giant bolide and lots of
meteor debris along with a large crater if this really was a meteor. Still
waiting for the sun to come up . . . .
AN HIGHLY PROBABLE: ICBM WARNING SHOT WAS JUST SENT TO VENEZUELA
Posted at approximately 8:30 PM CST Feb 9
I AM CALLING IT. NO METEOR HIT VENEZUELA, THIS WAS FAR MORE LIKELY AN ICBM
WARNING SHOT, AND THERE IS HISTORIC PRECEDENT TO PROVE IT.
MY CONCLUSION: This was an ICBM re-entry and impact, with a very low yield
conventional round on it, sent as a warning shot to Maduro. Obviously it could
also have been a legit meteor, but with the trajectory and characteristics
matching the re-entry of Russian ICBM's (America's can't be too different, the
tech is the same,) plus the bright flash just like a bomb, plus the firey
aftermath which we have never seen from a meteor before, I seriously, and I mean
seriously doubt this was a meteor.FACT: We have not ever had video of flames on
the ground from a meteor impact, have we? Not EVER. Why Venezuela? Why now???

Astronomers spotted a car-size asteroid just hours before it exploded over
Puerto Rico - 27 Jun 2019
Scientists in Hawaii initially spotted the asteroid, named 2019 MO, on Saturday

Rico, according to the University of Hawaii.
Unlike 2018 LA, Earth's latest visitor was harmless and didn't make it to the
ground. But the asteroid, 13 feet (4 meters) long, still made a spectacular
fireball that was equivalent to about 6,000 tons of exploding TNT, according to
the Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS), which is run by the Jet
Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, California.
The asteroid's impact was so powerful, even satellites in orbit spotted it.
Satellites operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Astronomical odds? Meteor strikes moon during 'Super Wolf Blood Moon'
eclipse - 22 Jan 2019
Scientists Solve the Mystery of Super Blood Wolf Moon Explosion (VIDEO)
Having studied videos of the impact, recorded by amateur astronomers, the
scientists surmised that the impact generated energy equal to about 0.9 – 1.8
tons of TNT, with the meteoroid itself being about 30-
50 cm wide and weighing between 20 and 100 kg.
The Super Blood Wolf Moon is seen near a statue during a lunar eclipse on
Brussels' Grand Place, Belgium, January 21, 2019
The research team also concluded that, if their findings are correct, the impact
crater should have a diameter of about 7 to 15 meters and can therefore be
detected by prospecting lunar probes.

House-sized asteroid whizzes past earth - 18 Apr 2019
Named 2019 GC6, the asteroid was discovered by NASA's Catalina Sky Survey near
Tucson, Arizona, just last Tuesday (April 9), nine days before it flew by Earth.
The giant rock made its closest approach this morning at 2:41 a.m. EDT (0641
GMT), when it whizzed by our plant at a safe distance of about 136,000 miles
(219,000 kilometers), or slightly more than half the average distance between
Earth and the moon.
At the time, the asteroid was traveling at a relative speed of about 12,600 mph
(20,300 km/h), according to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. NASA estimated
that the speeding space rock's diameter is "within a factor of two" of 49 feet
(15 meters), which means it may be up to 98 feet (30 meters) wide.
International space agencies team up to practice for an asteroid striking
Earth - 26 Apr 2019
You've gotta hand it to America's space scientists: they're resilient. Despite
an admission that they may not be able to stop the asteroid Bennu from turning
Earth into a smoldering crater filled with the ashen remains of its human
inhabitants, NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO) has teamed up
with FEMA and other agencies for what amounts to a wargaming exercise to prepare
themselves for a catastrophic asteroid strike.
The best part of this? The ESA is tweeting out bits and pieces of the scenario -
that an asteroid named 2019PDC has been spotted and calculated to have a 1 in
100 chance of striking Earth - as if it were happening in real time.
