they signed a non-aggression pact with each other. then to the supposed shock and surprise of stalin, hitler invaded, and stalin was "too shocked" to do anything about it till hitler was almost to moscow. you believe that, doncha? along the way, hitler's forces were wiping out jewish settlements. the thing to remember here is: stalin began to wipe out jews as well, after hitler's "supposed "defeat. from my perspective, hitler sent those german forces to their deaths, after they wiped out the jewish settlements, having a prearranged agreement with stalin for just that purpose.
i don't buy that stalin was shocked. i don't buy that he was in disagreement with hitler's onslaught. and i don't buy that guys from the snowy mountains of germany, had no idea how to fight in russian snow.

Sorry there is not much information, and my source is email, but a comet (comet P/2009 WX51 CATALINA) which was previously thought to have been an asteroid, but was recently found by WISE to be a comet may cause a new meteor shower that would be visible around the 21-22 April.
So keep your eyes open around those dates, and there is a possibillity of seeing some meteors from this comet which has only just recently passed through space which Earth is about to pass through.
Details/orbit of the comet can be found here.
Obervers should be alert this year for another active meteor shower source apart from the Lyrids which is also due to peak at more or less the same time. These meteors will appear to be of medium-slow speed, Lryids will be a bit swifter. I will update if and when I get any more details.
