Gotta love the GALACTIC ALIGNMENT we are going through.
Paul Laviolette is right.
Abadon and his locusts will be certain to hit the earth.
and ezekials wheels are turning too.
dang those 7 headed dragons...
Rev 9 1-11

Hey, whats 1/4 Lion, 1/4 man/horse, 1/4 bird, and 1/4 scorpion?.....

Give up???

an asteroid. especially one that impacts between July and November...
Everything that the ancients were writing about were all asteroids/astral bodies hitting the earth.

let's see a black president.. 2012, asteroid impact and an E.L.E.
didn't they make a movie about this???
oh yeah, they called it "DEEP IMPACT"


i really love this 25,920 year cycle we are ending...
Ra sends his eye again... Asteroid impact, solar flares, earhquakes, EMPs,
floods, pole flip??? pole reversal...
funny how all of the major E.L.E.s happen around Galactic alignments...
13,000 years, 26,000 years, and even every 5,200 years... (1/5 25,920)
wonder if the "golden ratio" has anything to do with it.
The galaxy is infact a giant electro-magnetic funnel, the real "holy grail"
Funny thing is, no one knows that there is another galaxy spinning around
the opposite side of the Galactic center.
2 galaxies connected together spinning in opposite dirctions.
Like a gaint Hour glass. and i think our time is up.
or like 2 whirl pools.
And if these so-called scientists would get their heads out of their asses, we can ride the Galactic wave the hell of this planet.
A gigantic Jacob's Ladder is coming our way.
I would really hate to be here when "they" arrive.
X-files or Sitchin.. does it really matter???
I am looking for the real "stairway to heaven" because everthing that glitters really is gold.
And there sure is going to be one hell of a "bustle" in your "HEDGEROW"
damn those ANgels in the whirlwinds.

I wish Hoagland would return my emails me.
I found a real alien on mars.... and more stargates aligned to ORION too.
Dan Burisch is telling the truth, as he knows it..
Gotta love those weapons of mass teleportation....

The Canadian fireball has just made APOD

Explanation: What if you're driving down the street and an object from space shoots across the sky right in front of you? Such was the case last week for many people in south central Canada. Specifically, an extremely bright fireball, presumably a desk-sized meteor from deep space, flashed across the sky just after sunset on 2008 November 20. The bright fireball was recorded on many images and movies, including the spectacular video shown above that was captured by a dashboard camera of a police cruiser in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Because at least two streaks appear to be visible, the falling object likely broke up into pieces as it fell deep into Earth's atmosphere. By triangulating fireball images from several simultaneously recorded sources, astronomers hope to find an approximate orbit from whence the object came, as well as the likely place(s) on Earth where large pieces would have impacted, were they to have survived reentry. In the best case scenario, pieces would be recovered from a known deep space comet or asteroid, giving humanity an unprecedented look at an ancient object that likely holds clues to the early years of our Earth and the Solar System.

I Bet it was that toolbag that lady astronaught dropped a day before. Thats why they were able to predict a near earth astroid that was about to hit for the first time in

SWEET! My hometowns getting some props on ATS! I saw the meteor, I was certain we were doomed! Obviously I was wrong. It was the craziest thing I'd ever seen. I was out back just hanging out with my cats when three flashes filled the sky. It went from dark to brighter than daylight, damn near blinded me. I didn't see the actual meteor, just the flash from the explosion, then I sat there waiting for a loud explosion, but there was no sound.

Yup, thats my story.

Meteorite hunters head to Alberta-Sask. border for Rockstock

Space enthusiasts are heading to small communities near the Alberta-Saskatchewan border hoping for a chunk of the meteor that streaked across the prairie sky last Thursday night.
Well-known Arizona meteorite collector Robert Haag is offering $10,000 for the first one-kilogram chunk of the fallen meteor.
"The first piece that is found, I am immediately catching the first plane to Canada with a pocket full of money," he said Monday.
Haag, who suspects meteorites could be found somewhere in the Macklin, Sask., area near the Alberta border, said he won't be alone.
"It's a happening. It's like Woodstock. It's Rockstock," he said. "Take your trucks and campers, hitch up your horses, do what you need to do and let's find it."

U of A researcher unveils potential meteorite breakthrough

Computer imaging technology already used extensively in forestry could lead the search for meteorite craters.
LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) imagery originally taken for forestry purposes was used to discover the Whitecourt meteorite crater late last month and the technology is believed to be able to uncover many more hidden craters.
“One of the things in terms of using this technology is being able to look for other craters and there's a prediction based on modelling that says there should be other craters on the surface of the earth that should be of the same age range,” said University of Alberta researcher Chris Herd.
Currently, there are only 175 craters known worldwide with less than 10 sites being under 10,000 years old. The Whitecourt crater is only the 30th crater found in Canada and deemed to be the youngest.

I guess that leaves me out of the running... Pegasus is poor

Wonder what this one is worth?

A Chance to Own the Crown Portion of a Centerpiece
Exhibit at a World-Renowned Museum

The last time a specimen of the Willamette meteorite sold at auction, it brought nearly eight times its weight in the price of gold today. This is an extremely important offering; a singular specimen of a preeminent meteorite. 246 x 279 x 158mm (9.5 x 11 x 6.25 inches) and 13.399 kilos (29.5 pounds).

$1,100,000 – 1,300,000

No wonder he is offering ONLY 10,000

Why in the hell are they looking near the Alberta border?

You have sightings far far away from there where the object diminishes to the ground. I am telling you, its near the Saskatchewan / Manitoba border.

10 bucks says the first piece is found in the open fields by Swan River Manitoba.

im in minnesota and me and my coworkers saw it. i said look at that. they all looked at this green glow go thru the sky. it was partly cloudy that day and about 9 or ten of us saw it. wow. even tho it was partly cloudy we all seen the whole thing go by. thankful the clouds were not in the way of the view of it.

Sorry to get off-topic, but that pic you posted Zorgon of the Meteorite on the cart just reminds me of the Flinstone mobile

The first one is Ahnighito, part of Cape York meteorite:

This huge piece of iron, known as Ahnighito, is actually just one portion of a much larger meteorite that fell to Earth from space. It landed in Greenland thousands of years ago, before any people lived there. The original meteorite, called Cape York, was initially around 200 tons—at least six times the size of Ahnighito—before it broke apart in the atmosphere. Two other fragments of Cape York can also be seen in this hall. At 34 tons, Ahnighito is the largest meteorite on display in any museum.

The second one is Willamette:

The Willamette Meteorite was discovered in the Willamette Valley of Oregon near the modern city of West Linn. Although apparently known to Native Americans, its modern discovery was made by settler Ellis Hughes in 1902. At that time the land was owned by the Oregon Iron and Steel Company. Hughes recognized the meteorite's significance, and in an attempt to claim ownership, secretly moved it to his own land. This involved 90 days of hard work to cover the 3/4 mile (1200 m) distance. The move was discovered, and after a lawsuit, the Oregon Supreme Court held that Oregon Iron and Steel Company was the legal owner.

It is believed to have been rafted into the area in an iceberg during the Missoula floods, even if it was observed, i don't think that there's a way to link the observation to it.

The pulsing effect some posters refer to can be caused by a combination of factors, all inherent in the video system itself.

First, a camera mounted outside would likely be equipped with an auto-iris (often called vari-focal) lens, which adjusts the aperture opening in response to changing light levels. At that time of day the light levels are low so the iris would be wide open to capture as much light as possible. The flash of the meteor would cause the camera to try to adjust the light level, by closing the aperture. The short time duration in this event would possibly cause the camera to overreact, and close the iris too much...this causes too low a light level and the camera responds by opening the iris again. The camera is "hunting" for an adequate setting...typically it takes a second or two before the image stabilizes.

Another possible factor is the video recorder's frame rate. These video images are stored at a low frame rate (ie. anywhere from 10 to 30 frames per second usually) to save storage space on the hard disk (or tape if it's an older system). This will cause a choppy effect...combined with the above technical issue it can cause some very interesting results.

I just looked at the video again, and saw what I think is a piece breaking away from the main part....I think the second flash is from the second piece.

Good info

However, looking at the dash-cam video, which you'd expect to have an auto-iris, the other lights in the video remain consistently bright. Mr Bartlett's foottage on the other hand has no other reference light sources in the frame, and the meteor appears to 'flash' quite violently, even more so than the dash-cam footage. Even a fast iris couldn't cause that IMHO.

The all-sky cam would also have an auto-iris, and the footage shows the meteor flickering, but other lights are not affected as far as I can tell. The theory does not seem to hold up unfortunately...

I'd say the flashes and flickering are natural, and normal, at least in my experience with meteors.

And the bombardment continues...

Possible meteor streaks across B.C. sky
Some lucky people across B.C. were treated to an amazing light show Tuesday afternoon when a bright object streaked across the twilight sky.

Three witnesses in the Vancouver area told CBC News they saw the object blaze through the sky around 4:35 p.m. PT., for about one or two seconds.

"I looked up just above Grouse [Mountain] and [it] was as if a Roman candle came rushing across the profile," Derek Lunden said.

"There was this rocket kind of looking object going from the east to west. It didn't look real," Jim Allen said.

"The front was breaking up into two or three little bits that were sparkling, and then it just fizzled right out," said John Martin.

Edit to add: I've eliminated Leonids, Geminids, Northern Chi Orionids, Northern/Southern Taurids, and December Monocerotids. It's looking like this is another small chunk of asteroid.

Im not sure if anyone caught Daily Planet last night (an educational show on science and technology on the Discovery Channel), But they talked a good 10 minutes or so on their hour long show about the fireball over edmonton. sorry i cant remember it completely, ill search for it on their site and youtube.

they also stated that it is very possible that the fireball actually did make an impact and may be the size of a desk.

I saw that. They were saying it was about the size of a desk and upwards of 10 tons. I'm sure it would've left a pretty hole in the earth had it not broken up.

When they say 'impact', they mean that it would have been free-falling the instant before it impacted ground... so yes, there may well have been an 'impact'.

I hate to say it, but...
