Dude, I think you're ON Wormwood
(For those who don't understand: www.erowid.org... )
On occasion, Chornobyl has been translated controversially to mean simply "wormwood" (which most commonly refers to Artemisia absinthium), with consequent apocalyptic associations, that spread as far as Poland before Serge Schmemann of the New York Times published "Chernobyl Fallout: Apocalyptic Tale", July 25, 1986. The article quoted an unnamed "prominent Russian writer" as claiming the Ukrainian word for wormwood was chernobyl.

Actually there does exist a comet that someone named Wormwood. Still in it's orbit I believe.

I don't know how you came up with this, but wouldn't it be a better approch to just expect 'something' from the sky? Then, when and if it idoes happen, you could connect the dots in your mind and say "Oh, THAT must be Workwood".
If this prophesy is to come true, you learn it in order to recognise it when it does happen, not to try and figure it out before it happens.
If it ends up being up being a mothership from mars, then you could say it is workwood, but if it ends up being a comet, you may miss its connection to the prophesy.
True, but then what I did was look very very carefully at the surrounding texts. Wormwood is from chapter 8 of Revelation. The very next thing that transpires (in Revelation 9) is an angel falls to earth with the key to the Bottomless Pit. It's possible this angel was from the mothership in chapter 8. This could be a further description of what is transpiring in Revelation 8. If you read those two chapters and consider the falling stars are spacecraft with occupants, the whole event begins to take on mammoth proportions. In addition, it sounds as if a battle is transpiring in the space above our planet, between the angelic races and that the fallen ones are losing as indicated by the crashing of their mothership. Then again, the ship may not be destroyed, and in fact, may be deliberately diving into the ocean and poisoning the water, but that's conjecture.

Wormwood is the main ingredient in Absinthe which is available almost everywhere except the U.S.
A possible explanation for seeing these types of things would be the same reason Van Gough made paintings like starry night etc. Because wormwood makes you hallucinate. however it can be poisonous as well.
Wormwood is hallucinogenic and potentially lethal in high doses. Speaking of which all this talk makes me want to have a couple of shots out of my half empty bottle.
There are like180 different species most of which are used in gardens, food, decor, drinks, and even bug repellant through out the ages.

I believe this to be more correct, that wormwood is like the spice in Dune etc., it is the substance that takes you to the next level and chemical substances can do this to a limited degree.
But wormwood should be more than this and no chemical elixir is a substitute for it.
