BREAKING NEWS: ASTEROID 2012 DA14, CONSPIRACY THEORIES, RUSSIAN ‘METERORITES’ AND THE RETURN OF THE ANCIENT ALIENS
By Rock Mayock 1:00 a.m. | On Friday afternoon at approximately 12:44 p.m. PT, the 150 foot wide asteroid known as 2012 DA14 will be racing toward planet Earth at an estimated speed of 17,500 mph. Although space debris hurtling toward Earth is not unusual, what makes this event so significant is the narrowest of margins (relatively speaking) that 2012 DA14 will pass Earth’s orbit. This particular asteroid will come within only 17,200 miles of striking the Earth. Lets place this in perspective.
Man made satellites that circle the Earth maintain a geosynchronous orbit of approximately 22,000 miles. This means that 2012 DA14 will pass within a full 5,000 miles, or 1/4, of the orbit held by our man made communications satellites. If 2012 DA14 were to collide with the Earth, the ensuing explosion would be the equivalent to a 2.4-megaton atomic bomb. This is twice as devastating as the most powerful active weapon in the United States’ nuclear arsenal, the 1.2 megaton B83 nuclear bomb.
For you astronomy buffs, the 2012 DA14 asteroid will only be visible from portions of Eastern Europe. Interestingly enough the last significant asteroid/meteorite in recorded history took place in 1908 when an asteroid similar to 2012 DA14 struck the Tunguska region of Siberia. The resulting explosion leveled tress within a 820 mile radius from the impact site. Many people who subscribe to the Ancient Alien or Ancient Astronaut theory suggest the Tunguska incident was actually aliens crash landing on Earth. Although there is little to no physical evidence to support this theory it is food for thought nonetheless. You can learn more about the Tunguska incident below.
As of this evening, news reports have been coming out of Russia about a “meteor” strike approximately 930-miles East of Moscow. This impact from this supposed “meteorite” occurred in a rural area near the base of the Ural Mountains. Ironically, the Ural Mountains make a nearly perfect half way point between Tunguska and Moscow. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not.
Clips of this most recent incident were captured with cell phones have already found their way onto YouTube. The clip below clearly illustrates a brilliant ball of light moving at tremendous speed with an almost intelligent guidance. The clip also proves that the Russians love themselves some Leona Lewis Bleeding Love. BOING!
What makes today’s events even more interesting is how close it occurred to the December 21, 2012, end of Mayan long count calendar. Some people speculate whether the long count calendar marked the end of the physical world or whether it was a count down for when the Maya “star gods” would return. Is it possible they have returned, albeit a bit late?
Perhaps the passing of 2012 DA14, the Tunguska incident, the end of the Maya long count calendar, Leona Lewis and the current “meteorite” strike in Russia are all coincidence. Or perhaps these are all interconnected events that conclusively prove that Ancient Aliens have returned to Earth. Either way, crack a Hop Henge and enjoy the weekend.
