Got some fresh doom-porn for the ATS crowd....! Well, Doom and Gloom depending on how you look at it. According to Astronomers, a rogue chunk known as WT1190F which is about 2 meters high and orbits Earth far beyond the Moon is on a collision course with Earth. Astronomers aren't exactly sure what it is but seem pretty certain that whatever doesn't burn up in the atmosphere will crash in the Indian Ocean. Interesting.....



A rogue chunk of debris that orbited Earth far beyond the Moon is making a homecoming on November 13th, astronomers have concluded. WT1190F is one to two meters in length and probably hollow, but beyond that, we have no idea WTF the aptly-named space garbage is.

Much, if not all of WT1190F will burn up in orbit around 06:19 GMT on November 13th. Any remaining fragments will splash into the Indian Ocean just south of Sri Lanka, so if you were planning a fishing outing on that very day, maybe reschedule. The event will go unnoticed by most of the world, but the astronomers who track near-Earth objects are all in a tizzy over it. WT1190F’s atmospheric re-entry is a rare opportunity for scientists to study how incoming objects interact with our atmosphere. It’s also giving astronomers the chance to test-drive a coordinated network they’ve put in place for occasions when more dangerous space objects comes a-knockin’.


This interests me because it reminds me of a Hopi prophecy about a heavenly place crashing to Earth.
""And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease."
Could this event be that prophecy coming true? What says ATS?

No.
The prophecy was actually talking about Skylab...which was actually a dwelling place. As opposed to this piece of space trash, which is not, unless very small people dwell in it.

I doubt very much it has anything to do with the Hopi prophecy, but I find it funny that if you take out the numbers you are left with WTF.

It's been named a few times.

LOL@ "the prophecy was actually talking about Skylab".

You say this like it is absolute and without question and you couldn't possibly be wrong.

It is.
I'm not.

One to two meters big, hollow and orbital path past the moon.

Sounds like a cover or faring used on a interplanetary probe that didn't quite make it far enough away from the Earth.

Also sounds like something that would burn up quickly rather than reach the ground.

I think there's a lot of small people that dwell on these sorts of things..

According to article on NASA.gov,

"Orbital debris is any manmade object in orbit about the Earth which no longer eves a useful function. Such debris includes non-functional spacecraft, abandoned launch vehicle stages, mission-related debris and fragmentation debris.''
Article is here,
www.nasa.gov...
So, not only do we treat our planet as a garbage bin, but space is also nothing to care too much about.
"WTF, here's some trash Earth, we didn't like it clogging up our travels to your planet'' The aliens have spoken and the message is clear, ''WTF''

You are aware that every single thing here on Earth (and that we've put out into space) came from space in the first place, right?

Every single molecule of every element that is naturally found here on Earth came from the very first stars that formed in the early universe.

a reply to: eriktheawful I guess I'm just the sort of person who believes not to litter.

Everything is connected in someway, but I don't really feel a bond with the bag of garbage that has to go out every week.
Everything originating from space has given me a profound feeling, thank you for expanding my mind.

That's a good line to try on a cop after tossing some junk item out the window while driving down the road.


Some might laugh and not give a ticket, but I bet most would give a big fine. Seeing space junk in it's natural form would probably trump seeing lots of fabricated wreckage in space

Wait. Confused.

Is this the same or different than the Halloween one (TB145) that I think they're calling Spooky and/or saying might hit the moon?

This one is in November? So two? Hmmm. WT___F or WT (World Trade) 119 (911 backwards). Spooky.

not to knock your obvious knowledge and standing but how are you so certain
it was Skylab
could the prophecy not be refering to MIR, ISS or even a future mission?

The Bible called it the great burning star
Nostradamus called it the same
He said a comet would pass and meteors
From the tail would hit the earth

Catalina us10 will soon be here and it is
Sporting a green and blue colour
About the 23rd of January it will have passed the sun and be seen in the constellation
Ursa minor
He said it will be first seen there
I am expecting a plazma ignition to happen
There was a comet in the past
I can't remember the name of this comet
But it was reported that it too ignited
Out past Jupiter
And it's coma was the size of the earth
Being so far away to us it looked like a distance star
If it was to happen near us
We will have one spectacular show

I could be wrong and have been in the past but I am keeping an eye on that asteroid passing us on helloween
They say it could be a comet not an asteroid

I know it is coming but not sure which one

Any chance it's something from the Apollo program?

I was thinking that because of how far it was out there, there wasn't too much that it could be. I know the big fuel tanks would have all fallen off very early, but wasn't there a stage that didn't get used up till they were pretty far along their way to the moon?

Would they have seen and tracked something ~2m long from the Apollo era a long time before ~2012 or would it be more like that was just when maybe being able to find it overlapped with when they got lucky and happened to find it.

I would be more afraid and worried if it was our moon making a home coming instead of a small piece of space trash that will sure enough vaporize as soon as it makes contact with our outer atmosphere.
