I am still highly skeptical of the impactor theory. I know the religious folks think that's the most likely interpretation of the mountain on fire falling into the sea, but I am thinking another possibility is that a volcano could also erupt and cause a massive subsidence event that collapses into the sea. That would also be a fiery mountain and would also cause tsunamis. There is the Canary Island volcano. There are volcanic mountainsides in Hawaii that fit the bill. Any one of those subsiding in a massive landslide into the ocean during an eruptive event would be a mountain of fire falling into the sea.
According to Martin Armstrong Economics, 30th September will be a pivotal date. According to Armstrong, it will be the catalyst for a Big Bang.

i may be wrong, but i guess if something comes from the direction of the sun (but it's not behind it - it's between the sun and the earth), then it'll be hardly visible on earth's surface or even from space, unless it has an atmosphere.
while such object is further from the earth than the sun, much greater surface gets illuminated, but when it's between the sun and the earth, the closer it is to the line earth - sun, the harder it is to see it. we can see venus without problems, but compared to an asteroid, it is huge and it has an atmosphere. asteroid - or even a comet - capable of huge destruction upon impact, would be able to slip unnoticed, imho.
