I have wanted to post about this for a long time, even before I joined here. I think I am ready now, I feel nervous because it sounds crazy.
When my daughter was 4 years old I jokingly told her "come out here( to the deck outside, it was dark out) with me and tell me what planet you are
from" . It was a spontaneous question from me; as a caveat she was not exposed to extraterrestrial, UFO, Alien, conversation or movies.
That 4 year year old squared her shoulders and with the most serious look and posture pointed to a certain spot in the night sky and said
"Mazalia". I was not at all expecting this serious response from her and was taken aback. I then asked her; why did you come here? She said "our
sun burned out." I asked no more questions.
However, I went on a web search after putting her to bed and found this asteroid Massalia discovered 1852; spelling is different from my
interpretation of what she told me:
"Massalia (/məˈseɪliə/ mə-SAY-lee-ə; minor planet designation: 20 Massalia) is a stony asteroid and the parent body of the Massalia family
located in the inner region of the asteroid belt, approximately 145 kilometers (90 miles) in diameter. Discovered by Italian astronomer Annibale de
Gasparis on 19 September 1852, it was named for the French city of Marseille, from which the independent discover Jean Chacornac sighted it the
"Massalia is the namesake and the parent body of the Massalia family (404), a very large inner belt asteroid family consisting of stony asteroids
with very low inclinations.:23 It is by far the largest body in this family. The remaining family members are fragments ejected by a cratering
event on Massalia.
It orbits the Sun in the inner main-belt at a distance of 2.1–2.8 AU once every 3 years and 9 months (1,366 days; semi-major axis of 2.41 AU). Its
orbit has an eccentricity of 0.14 and an inclination of 1° with respect to the ecliptic."
Currently she is a sweet, sensitive, sassy, very intelligent( advanced classes at school) person.
My reason for making this thread is because I have wondered if anyone of you have experienced or heard similar things?
