Here is the latest from Tunisia-Live.



Over the weekend, Tunisia received a jolt from a galaxy far, far away.

A space object, likely a meteorite, fell on Sunday in a rural desert area of the Tataouine governorate in southern Tunisia, not far from the filming location of the first Star Wars movie, according to local radio reports.

Witnesses, according to Radio Tataouine, say that a bright object was seen falling from the sky at around 8 p.m. and then exploded on the ground. The streaking space object was reportedly visible from the city of Tataouine, the governorate’s capital.

Can't find anything on the main news channels, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is true.

There is an awful lot of big ones coming in lately, I honestly think we are just going through an active part of space.

As for the photo in the OP, it is an old stock photo, Phage hates it, in fact, given that he hasn't commented on this thread, I'm wondering if he has knocked himself out with a facepalm...

And, what, if anything, can we do about a meteor that pops up and falls into a populated area? Stay vigilant? Buy keeping Fire and Rescue trucks fueled up?

The rainbow; God promised he would never flood the whole Earth again. This time it will be fire and brimstone. Earthquakes & volcanoes. Nibiru's debris tail has TRILLIONS of asteroids so best get on your knees and confess who is in charge if you have not already. Ones that are the right size will catch fire as they enter our atmosphere. Brimstone and volcanoes + nuclear disasters = total oxygen depletion, a possible ELE event?


Whether it is in the physical life or the pit of fire (second death), "Every knee WILL bow and every tongue WILL confess that Jesus Christ is Lord."

Wow, so turns out this seems to be true, from that Tunisia Live story. Heh well, we can thank a user from Egypt who reported this first, and was brushed aside. That story was buried in minutes. I just happened to find it interesting, translated it myself, and posted it here. Sorry bout the stock pics, people. They just seemed to lend some eye candy to it.

And it's still very quiet in the media. Only local news covering it. Mostly because it was over the dessert and no people injured, but also probably due to fear that people will have if they notice more of these things. Especially with Comet Ison coming soon.

Could be they just don't want swarms of amatuer meteorite hunters coming. They might have wanted a chance to collect samples themselves - these fresh impacts are pretty highly prized.

On the other hand...

[Insert generic tptb suppression of information / black-ops coverup spiel!]

If that were the case, the locals would probably suppress the news first and the local Tunisian news outlets are so far the only ones who have covered it. None of the MSM have picked it up.

And there is yet another asteroid discovered a few days ago that will pass by within 230,000 miles. The thread is here:

Noteworthy uptick in frequency. Cross fingers that they are smaller than a bus...

True, but it does seem pretty suppressed overall, I still haven't seen any MSM coverage on it. I'd think that would be sufficient, but I could easily be wrong.

Maybe they aren't worried about suppressing the story locally because it was so apparent to them? They felt it would be kind of pointless?

This is why they sent the Military to investigate...

Not sure why you are perplexed, but according to the Vatican the observatory is used to explore God's handiwork.


From the observatory FAQ:


Why is the Vatican interested in astronomy?
Initially it was for a practical reason, to reform the Julian Calendar, like so many national observatories that were started, e.g., to improve navigation at sea; later at the establishment of the present form of the Vatican Observatory in 1891, for an apologetic purpose, in the sense of defending the Catholic Church's positive regard for science; now to join in doing good science in a way that is possible, given the Vatican's other concerns, as part of the consequence that the Incarnation of Christ applies to all human activity.

The Church has an interest in knowing what goes on as "science" can only explain the "how" or "what" happens. What Scripture there is doesn't delve too deeply into that, does it? Is it an assembly manual for the Universe?

Someone can tell me that two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen can combine to create water and that so many of life's processes require that molecule for function; no one can tell "why" without diverting to "this is how the elements and chemicals work". No one can state "why" things have to be the way they are.

Correlation does not equal causation. The "why" things are as they are, at least for now, lies in the realms of philosophy and religion. And I'm often reminded that intelligent decisions do not always require conscious thought.

The only interest of the Vatican is Wormwood described in Revelation. They are terrified that this cosmic object is on its way. The VATT scope is very advanced, very expensive, and very private.

My point exactly, very private......why?........ That's why I was perplexed.....but I would like to thank everyone for their explainations.
