10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.
The Sun and the solar system are located approxi-mately 8.5 kpc from the galactic center, and 10-20 pc above the central plane of the galactic disk.
The Sun and planets passed through the galactic plane about 2-3 million years ago, moving "northward."
The solar system Is currently close to and moving inward toward "perigalacticon," the point in the orbit closest to the galactic center.

Are you meaning me? If you are, well I'm not "calm" about it but I'm not worked up either. I have been listening to this stuff for a few years and I truely believe that something is going to happen to humanity in our lifetime meaning now. I guess I am resolved in my belief that there is something beyond that is better, peaceful. I don't know how to explain it but I am not going to be afraid of it. LIke I said before I just don't want it to hurt so I rather it be water than fire and I do worry about my kid. Other than that...no I am not afraid and strangely I couldn't tell you why I feel ok with it, not that I want it to happen or anything like that to happen but I feel peaceful about it.
Now I sound like a kook LOL:

That was pretty scary but as soon as he start putting his christian perspective on it, it ruined it form me. The whole "Revelation" NWO will start afterward and blah blah blah is just too conveinient. How in the hell can any one know who exactly are gonna survive?
If the "Gods" want to have their little summer BBQ now, there's nothing one can do really!

Did anyone hear it? What do you think???
PASADENA, Calif. -- NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, has been assembled and is undergoing final preparations for a planned Nov. 1 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif.
The mission will survey the entire sky at infrared wavelengths, creating a cosmic clearinghouse of hundreds of millions of objects -- everything from the most luminous galaxies, to the nearest stars, to dark and potentially hazardous asteroids. The survey will be the most detailed to date in infrared light, with a sensitivity hundreds of times better than that of its predecessor, the Infrared Astronomical Satellite.
"Most of the sky has never been imaged at these infrared wavelengths with this kind of sensitivity," said Edward Wright, the mission's principal investigator at UCLA. "We are sure to find many surprises."
Among expected finds from WISE are hundreds of thousands of asteroids in our solar system's asteroid belt, and hundreds of additional asteroids that come near Earth. Many asteroids have gone undetected because they don't reflect much visible light, but their heat makes them glow in infrared light that WISE can see. By cataloguing the objects, the mission will provide better estimates of their sizes, a critical step for assessing the risk associated with those that might impact Earth.
"We know that asteroids occasionally hit Earth, and we'd like to have a better idea of how many there are and their sizes," said Amy Mainzer of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., the mission's deputy project scientist. "Whether they are dark or shiny, they all emit infrared light. They can't hide from WISE."
The mission is also expected to find the coldest stars -- dim orbs called brown dwarfs that are too small to have ignited like our sun. Brown dwarfs are littered throughout our galaxy, but because they are so cool, they are often too faint to see in visible light. The infrared detectors on WISE will pick up the glow of roughly 1,000 brown dwarfs in our galaxy, including those coldest and closest to our solar system. In fact, astronomers say the mission could find a brown dwarf closer to us than the nearest known star, Proxima Centauri, located approximately 4 light-years away.
