Dr Gartrell (Aussie Bloke) Steps Forward To Confirm His Predictions, Testified To Australian Parliament
THE ENTIRE PLANET MAY BE IN DEEP TROUBLE: a Government
Coverup is Exposed

June 3, 2004 Cabool, MO
A senior Australian Physicist/Astronomer began revealing --
first anonymously and now publicly -- that his government Physics/Astronomy team had discovered -- some 20 years ago
-- that a HUGE Outer Space debris cloud/field is headed toward us and will arrive on June 8/9, 2004 -- along with 3
heavy objects that they have believed for 10 years will most certainly strike the earth causing massive upheavals...
*unless* they miss us by a VERY close margin. Dr Gartrell said only time will tell.
Many N.E.O. or "Near Earth Objects" have been discovered
lately -- but announced in the media only AFTER they passed our planet within 250,000 miles or so!
Dr. Gartrell´s testimony has been both broad and deep. It is
all on our website at www.prophecykeepers.com as he has requested publicly that it be broadcasted far and wide.
Dr. Gartrell now feels he is telling us all of this
information at the risk of his own life, because he was muzzled many years ago by his government -- and has been
threatened -- but he is at peace with God and resigned to what he feels is our fate now that he has visited his family
between 5/15 and 5/29/2004.
He has now been further identified by www.Prophecykeepers.com Radio as "Dr. Grant Gartrell" of
Mount Compass, South Australia -- facts which can be easily verified by anyone with a search engine.
Dr. Gartrell is either a bonafide physicist, or he lied to
the South Australian Parliament. It is as simple as that. He has in the past publicly testified in front of the South
Australian Parliament and has given his name and address... and has published scientific papers along with other
scientists on the subject of possibly threatening outer space objects. He was testifying concerning caves, as he is
an amateur cave explorer who has made important discoveries of Pliestocene era dinosaur bones... and that information is
also on the Internet for all to see.
He began revealing his disturbing facts anonymously on
4/29/04, and as promised on 5/15/04 that he would reveal his identity within two weeks -- to give him time for him to
visit family -- and on 5/29/04 he revealed his surname as "Dr. Gartrell."
Prophecykeepers.com Radio did some simple research and
discovered his actual full name, address, and phone number... and that he does operate a "pick-your-own"
Blueberry farm nowadays where he also manufactures wine. He originally claimed his full history was freely available if
anyone dug deep enough... and we apparently did... and it
was available -- just as he claimed.
IF you *fully* read Dr. Grant´s Gartrell´s LONG
testimony suddenly it SHOULD dawn on you, as it did on Prophecykeepers.com, that SOMETHING HUGE OF EARTH SHATTERING
PROPORTIONS IS HAPPENENING AND THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE WORLD
OBVIOUSLY KNOW ABOUT IT!
You should begin to understand:
Why huge meteorites are now being seen worldwide and have
been reported by so many truckers in the skies in the last few weeks... and buzzed a town in New Jersey rattling windows.
Why the navies of the world are all out to sea as of this
month... and why military bases are humming with activity and closed bases are being reopened and refurbished...
Why the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank has put an unprecedented
amount of money into liquidity (cash in circulation in the banks)... more than at any time in the past... enough to
devalue the dollar by a whopping 20% !!!
Why the sun is appears to be getting "whiter..."
The REAL reason why the climate is changing...
Similarities to the Mayan "Black Road" prophecy...
How what Dr. Gartrell is saying is consistent with both
Native/Tribal and European Prophecies...
How the "debris cloud" is scheduled to arrive just as the
the Venus transit is visible in the Northern Hemisphere on June 7/8... an event which has ALWAYS caused much concern
for Cherokees and Mayans who have long respected the transit and its implications... implications of irreversible
changes, wars, destruction, etc.
...and why Prophecykeepers.com is going out on a limb and
believes Dr. Gartrell is telling the truth...
...and you will learn what Prophecykeepers.com feels perhaps
what you ought do to about all of this right now... and it is the same story we have been telling online since 1996.
A lone ham radio operator digitally recorded an intercept of
a U.S. military SSB (Single Side Band) radio transmission (before the transmission was suddenly shutdown because they
mistakenly broadcast "in the clear" or non-encrypted) on 26 January of this year referring to a mysterious "countdown"
to an unnamed event which (by the countdown) will occur around June 19 or 20 of this year.
In the past few weeks, however, naval units worldwide have been putting to sea in unusual numbers, sufficient to cause
us to revisit the original message to assess movements and adopt a watch mode going forward into the June 19-20 date
area. You will be able to listen to this radio transmission.
An ex-Green Beret reports:
Lots of the "air traffic is flying into, but not back out
of, Holloman AFB and Whitesands Missile Range at night. Also, the Patriot missile battery crews at Ft. Bliss, TX are
jumpy as all hell, are on constant standby, and are NOT preparing to deploy to Iraq. Go figure."
Now there is always the possibility that "Dr. Gartrell" is
just making wine in near Adelaide, and someone has hijacked his name... and that this is all a hoax, or this may be
disinformation and a "feint" to get us to look "here" when we should be looking "there." The point is, that BIG things
are definitely going on with the military on a world wide
scale, the financial world is humming, peolpe are scared... and something is up! Just what is the big question on many
people´s minds and lips.

Meteor light, sound rare over Puget Sound
By DONNA GORDON BLANKINSHIP
The Associated Press
6/4/2004, 9:35 a.m. ET
SEATTLE (AP) — A meteor that streaked across Western Washington was the
most dramatic celestial light and sound show over Puget Sound in decades, a
University of Washington meteorite specialist says.
quot;Earth is hit all of the time. What is uncommon is how very bright this
was. Most (meteoroids) burn up very high up and nobody sees them," said
Toby Smith, an astronomy lecturer at the university for about 10 years.
A meteoroid is the term for the object when it is above the atmosphere. The
light streak it creates when it bounces off or passes through the atmosphere is
called a meteor. If it hits the ground, it becomes a meteorite.
Witnesses along a 60-mile swath of the sound from near Tacoma to Whidbey
Island and as far as 260 miles to the east said the sky lit up brilliantly at
2:40 a.m. Thursday, and many reported booming sounds as if from one or more
The bright light can be attributed to the speed at which the object hit the
atmosphere. The sonic boom that followed about a minute or two later can be
explained by the size of the object falling out of the sky, Smith said, adding
that it's rare for meteors to be heard.
"This tells us it was a relatively substantial piece," he said.
Earthquake technology indicated the meteor exploded about 27 miles above and
6.4 miles northeast of Snohomish, William P. Steele, coordinator of the Pacific
Northwest Seismograph Network at the university, told The Seattle Times and
The blast was intense enough to register on about 80 quake detectors,
allowing university seismologist Stephen D. Malone use triangulation to
determine the point of origin.
"What was interesting to us is we saw only a point source (a single
explosion) there," rather than a sonic-boom kind of sound wave from an
object rapidly entering the atmosphere, Malone told the P-I.
One of Smith's colleagues, professor Don Brownlee, said his son saw the
bright light and then the whole family heard the sonic boom from inside their
houseboat, "this incredible noise that sounded like a truck landing on the
Geoff Chester, spokesman for the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.,
said meteors are not all that rare, but many fall over the ocean and are never
"For the average person, it could be a once- or twice-in-a-lifetime kind
of event," Chester said, adding that in the past 40 years of actively
watching the night sky because of his job and interests, he has only seen three
or four meteors.
Brownlee said he believes it likely the object did make it to the ground
without disintegrating but it could be as hard to find as a shower of gravel
over several square miles.
It could also be as big as a car, but Brownlee noted, "The bigger these
things are the rarer they are."

They´re after what´s rocking our world
Brothers hunt world for meteorites -- and now they´re here
By M.L. LYKE
SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTER
TACOMA -- In search of space booty, the Hupe brothers have bartered with
Bedouins, scoured the Sahara, jet-trotted halfway across America on a moment´s
notice, bankrolls in hand.
But the Hupes´ latest meteorite hunt zooms in right here at home.
Scott Eklund / P-I
Meteorite hunters and brothers, Adam, left, and Greg Hupe, hold up two
meteorites from their vast collection.
The two brothers want a piece of the action from the stunning June 3 meteor
show, a booming flash-dance over Snohomish that turned night to day.
They aren´t alone. Three teams from three states are working the fall, trying
to trace the trajectory of the meteor, and the site where it may, possibly, have
deposited a bit of exotic and -- if discovered -- pricey debris from outer
"The meteor fell on my birthday, and it´s in my own back yard. It´s
ridiculous!" says Adam Hupe, 42. He´s 11 months older than Greg and
equally excitable when talking falling space rocks.
The brothers, overgrown Hardy Boys who sold a multimillion-dollar computer
company to focus on their hobby, have amassed one of the world´s largest
private collections of meteorites in a few short years.
"They´re relatively new to the scene, but they´ve rather quickly
become major players," says Robert Matson, a respected space scientist
working out of Seal Beach, Calif.
Most of the Hupes´ specimens come from North African desert lands, and some are
worth thousands more than their weight in gold. But the brothers have no
Washington space specimens.
No surprise. An estimated 13,000 meteors fall to our planet each year. Yet only
five scientifically recognized meteorites have ever been found in our state.
"Believe me," says Adam, "once the first confirmed piece shows up
here, I´m all over it -- we both are."
The Hupes, who´ll be featured in an upcoming Outside magazine profile, are
local go-to guys for hopeful earthlings bearing strange black rocks. And they
have already fielded some duds from our June fireworks show.
Callers reported weird piles of rocks that suddenly appeared in Shoreline after
the June 3 streaker. They turned out to be road gravel. A big black chunk found
near Sea-Tac was asphalt -- more terrestrial ho-hum.
"You have to tell these people gingerly, let them down slowly," says
"They get so excited," says Adam.
Alien rocks fetch big bucks
The Hupes (pronounced "Who-pays") grew up as the only boys among six
children. They were buddies from the get-go.
"Were we close? Yeah!" says Adam.
"Oh, yeah," says Greg, head nodding.
They began treasure hunting in earnest at ages 11 and 12, when their father,
an Army general, gave them their first metal detector, used to dig up
centuries-old treasures in old buildings. The two call meteorite hunting
"the ultimate treasure hunt."
Greg and Adam were in their 20s when they launched a computer hardware business
in their mother´s basement and garage. By the time they retired at 37 and 38,
they had turned it into the multimillion-dollar-a-year enterprise called
The Hupes had all the boy toys -- homes, sleek cars, RVs, boats -- and no time
to use them. Weary of long hours and constant pressure, they cashed out just
before the stock market collapsed, dumped the "stuff" and turned their
attention to the hunt.
Currently, Adam lives in a tiny, bare-bones apartment near Point Defiance Park
in Tacoma. Greg is headed out to Florida in a U-Haul truck he bought at a
bargain rate, with plans to hunt treasure from sunken galleons and search
fossils. They´re both single, and if heaven falls, travel-ready in an instant.
Insiders say the Hupes have brought a new business sensibility to the collection
of meteorites. They invest serious money in their North African expeditions,
hire dealers who speak Berber dialects to recruit nomad hunters, and offer
sizable rewards for discoveries.
When not overseas themselves, they communicate with dealers via e-mail and cell
phone, which is how they learned about the discovery of half a Martian rock.
They called their dealer, told him to send out nomads to find the other part.
When their man had Part Two in hand, Greg hopped a 30-hour flight, met him at
the airport, and tried to subdue his eagerness as he fit the pieces together.
The two had a code phrase -- "The eagle has landed" -- to confirm the
When Greg uttered it, Adam began to whoop and holler.
"And I had to remain calm and composed!" says Greg. "If they
know you´re excited, you won´t get it."
Meteors from asteroids are relatively common. But the brothers´ chunk of the
Red Planet is one of only 31 confirmed martians on record. There are also 31
confirmed finds from the moon.
The Hupes have prized pieces from both, including the coveted "Desert
Lady," so-called because the large lunar rock passed through so many hands
before they acquired it.
A single thin slice of that white-and-gray moon meteorite listed on the Bonhams
and Butterfields auction site at $45,000 to $65,000. It sold for even more.
"Once you pull something like that, you´re addicted," says Adam.
"It´s life-changing," says Greg.
Collectors elbow out scientists
Meteorites have always excited the human imagination. Each is a story, an
ancient telling of planetary origins that stirs big-think philosophizing.
"You´re holding something billions of years old in your hand. You´re
holding the oldest material in the solar system -- the beginning of time as we
know it," says Greg.
The thrill of the find hasn´t changed, but the market surrounding it has
A half-century ago, the leading collector in the country drove around Arizona
in a beat-up pickup, with a giant magnet strapped underneath.
Today, private dealers trade hundreds of specimens on eBay and billions-year-old
space rocks pull million-dollar prices in heady collecting circles. The lure of
loot has set off a modern-day gold rush, with Indiana Jones adventurers scouting
far corners of the Earth, aggressive dealers cutting secret deals for specimens,
and collectors paying stratospheric prices for crumbs of planetary crusts.
The Hupes -- who say they only occasionally sell meteorites, and only to support
their habit -- are in the thick of the collecting fray, ready to act in an eye
Last year, Adam had a flight booked to Illinois 10 minutes after learning a
meteorite had crashed through the roof of a police and fire station outside
Chicago. He set up shop in front of the station, working out of a rental car
trunk, cash in hand. In a TV interview, he told viewers with fresh finds to
"bring ´em on in" -- he´d be the one in front of the station in the
Some 30 other dealers and collectors from around the globe were right behind
him. "Competitors saw it on the news. The next day, they all showed up in
yellow jackets," says Adams. Prices quickly escalated from $1 to $2 a gram
Scientists have conflicting opinions about the current "Wild West"
scene surrounding meteorites.
It´s true, they say, that more hunters, more dealers, more collectors, mean
more uncovered meteoritic material. But it´s also true that prime specimens are
not always available for scientific study, that many lack adequate field
documentation, and most are priced beyond reach of cash-strapped academics.
"Unfortunately, because of all the collectors, the cost has gone really
high. That´s a problem for researchers and museums trying to compete,"
says Don Brownlee, noted astronomy professor at the UW.
Reputable collectors like the Hupes rely on scientists to verify their samples.
In turn, they make a point of donating pieces of rare finds to them. "When
a researcher asks us to buy material, we won´t charge them, because they are
enhancing the value of our collection by studying it," says Adam.
"If they want it for personal reasons, we´ll do a trade."
Not everyone takes the high ground. So-called "cowboy" hunters often
flaunt collecting laws. "There are some shady people out there. They may
say things fell on their property, when it fell on public property ... or they
may take things out of countries that have restrictions on collecting,"
says John Schutt, a geologist and professional mountaineering guide in
Bellingham who, for years, has been recovering meteorites in Antarctica for
Spotting meteorites on wind-swept, bare blue ice is relatively easy. The
Antarctic teams drive back and forth in snowmobiles and look for dark objects.
"They´re just everywhere," says Schutt. "We´ve found upward of
3,000 to 4,000 in relatively restricted areas."
Spotting meteorites around the Puget Sound area is another matter.
Meteorites hide themselves well in a wet green landscape dense with trees and
scrub and littered with dark rocks. And they can quickly turn to rust in the
rain -- in a geological time frame.
"Western Washington is the worst place to find one," says Tony Irving,
lecturer in earth and space sciences at the UW. "Unless this one hit
something or came through a roof, it´s going to be tough."
Tough, but tantalizing. "Anytime you have a sonic boom like that, the
chance of having surviving meteorites is pretty high," says UW astronomer
Brownlee, who estimates the June 3 meteor was "bigger than a cow."
The UW represents one of three teams currently tracking the June 3 fall.
Scientists there have used seismographs to place the meteor explosion about six
miles northeast of Snohomish.
A Portland team is interviewing witnesses and triangulating their accounts of
the event, attempting to pinpoint the site.
A team from California is using camera images and interviews to track the
trajectory. "It´s a little like forensics," says Matson, a principal
investigator on the team. "You have to figure out what´s real, what´s
right, what´s wrong."
His team has already sent meteorite hunters to an undisclosed site east of
After a week, they came back empty-handed, reporting difficulties with thick
vegetation and scanty road access.
The Hupes are eagerly monitoring all three teams´ work.
"What we´re doing is riding all the teams," says Adam. "We told
them, whoever finds the first legitimate piece, we´re part of that team."
Behind them, expect an alien horde of hunters, dealers and collectors to
descend, hot on their trail.
Unlike ordinary terrestrial rocks, meteorites typically have a dark fusion
crust, from their burning plunge into the Earth´s atmosphere. Many also have
elemental iron, not native to our planet, which quickly rusts in the
uncongenially moist climate of the Northwest. About 90 percent of meteorites are
attracted to magnets.
I HEREBY CHALLENGE THE ELDERS
Posted By: Darrel Whitewolf
Date: Monday, 24 May 2004, 8:16 a.m.
I, Darrel Whitewolf, elder of Cherokee decent, with this
powerful message, hereby challenge the elders of all native nations. I
hereby petition for the immediate release of sacred information to all
humanity concerned for the immediate future of their families and loved ones.
At the risk of having many arrows shot in my direction, I
send this message.
I am an old warrior who is no stranger to battles.
It has been brought to my attention that the elders at this
time are preparing the last ceremonies. The Hopi who have no word in their
vocabulary for the future and are preparing to go underground. The Ojibwa and
the Lakota are saying that we are at the end. They say and I quote "Go back
and tell the people it is no longer the eleventh hour". It is said
that the blue star (katchina) has arrived and the "Purifier" (a large
celestial body) follows. It's time for the "CLEANSING" THE
It is time to tell the people about the arrival of the
watchers from the skies who don't look like us and the ones underground as well.
I have heard that White Buffalo Calf Woman has returned. I
have been told to teach the stories of creation and how we must become together
as one. This is not enough.
Chief Lookinghorse has delivered his messages at sacred sites
all over the world but it is still unclear to non Indian people just what is
happening now, this very year, maybe even this very next month.
It is perfectly clear to me but who will believe one person?
It is not enough to quote verses from the bible. It is not
enough to tell the old stories. It is not enough to talk about the animals and
what it means when a certain one shows up in your life.
I think I can safely say that I speak for all readers here
when I challenge you for the plain and simple truth about what is about to
happen. No more Bible verses from the unbalanced cross
brought by the ones who stole our land, raped our women and killed our children.
The ones manipulated by the watchers.
No more old stories. No more codes.
People do not want to hear this nonsense any longer because
time is too short. I know that you know. I also know that there is still
prejudice in the hearts of some of you and you do not want non-Indian people to
know these things.
It is time and the time is now for you to speak clearly and
decisively in releasing the information needed for people of all nations to
prepare themselves practically, safely, physically and
There is talk that the Pope is giving his final blessings. He
speaks of the fact that "Wormwood" (Planet X) has arrived. There is
talk that supposed astronomers are watching something large speeding toward
Earth. There is clear and unmistakable evidence that the skies day and night
have suddenly changed dramatically. The moon has changed its orbit and appears
in the west sky now when it rises. The stars are turning around in the sky at
night and moving slower. The Earth Mother staggers like a drunk.
With great respect to the Creator, I bow to him in a humble
way and ask for guidance in these matters not for me but for my brothers and
sisters, my friends and families.
With great respect for the elders I ask you to put this
knowledge forth and back up your words which say Mitakoye Oyasin. We are
all your brothers and sisters. Will you leave us behind, only knowing half
Grandfather forgive me if I have offended as this message
comes from my heart and the Spirit of Crazy Horse inside me speaking.
Grandfather forgive those who still hold contempt for the white man, the black
man, the red and the yellow.
We send our prayers to you with the smoke from the sacred
pipe on the wings of our brother Awahili, the Eagle.
I ask that you keep all of us here in your presence now and
Let the truths become clear to all.
Wado, Wakan Tanka, Aho
That is all I have to say.

Subject: Re: interesting!
Vince and Debbie
I am answering the call of my brother warrier Darrel Whitewolf...I ask you or
Magi to get the following message back to him as I don't know the site where he
is waiting, to post this message along side of his message...I stand beside him
and await the arrows if they come...In so doing I say this as I always say when
I speak..."These are my words...I give them to you...If you like them, then
keep them....If not, then throw them away, they were meant for someone else,
they are not for you"...That choice is yours...I bear you no ill will...
My brother warrior Darrel, I too am an elder, a shaman, and this is what I
say...I have watched the moon and stars, the plants and animals, our mother the
earth do strange things these past eleven years...Before and during these
happenings I cryed out warnings to those who would hear, but my words went in
one ear and fell out the other...I had been instructed by my guardians to pass
on this message...
The time before us, fast approaching is Ancient Time...It has been foretold
in the story from our prophets in many messages...It was said that the time is
near when the trees start to die from the top down...I have seen this with my
own eyes for the past five years, many, many trees dieing from the top
down...This event would be the prelude to this last prophecy, "When the
north touches the west, fire will fall from the sky, and the sky will turn
black...Following this there will be two hundred years of peace and following
that even a greater peace"...
What this means is the earth will once again fall over on her side as she has
done three times before...Let me tell you and the others who will listen how
this will happen...
When the north touches the west
There is a planet coming near to us in it's orbit around our sun which happens
every 3, 657 years...This planet is 4 times the size, 23 times the mass of our
mother the earth and it is known as Planet X...It will pass by the earth at
about 14 million miles away...When it goes by, it will grab our mother in a huge
magnetic fist and pull the earth over on its side...The very center of the earth
will relocate its energy that holds us in orbit around the sun, coming first to
a complete standstill for seven days...When this energy stops, the earths crust
will continue for the one quarter turn (the north touching the west) before it
too stops ...The first land to stop will have all the other lands slam into it,
causing the great mother to shake with a force that mankind has not witnessed
for a long time...This will bring great destruction to all that man has
built...All mans building will fall to the ground, all his factories, his tall
buildings, his refineries, his great fuel storage tanks, his dams, his power
lines and power generating stations, all will fall...This will happen with major
earthquakes of the like not known, volcanoes erupting and fierce winds...Our
mother will unleash this fury with a vengence for the way we have desecrated
her...The sun, the moon and the stars will stand still in the sky when the earth
stops for these seven days...
Fire will fall from the sky
There is dust that follows this Planet X, stretching out for millions of
miles in its wake, whiping about like a great tail...This dust is iron oxidized
dust...This dust tail will whip the earth entering into our atmosphere, ignite
into flame upon entry and fall to earth in great sheets of fire...This fire will
join the other fires burning from that which had fallen of what man built...This
great fire will purify the earth for its new regrowth...
And the sky will turn black
The fires will be so plentiful that the smoke of these fires will fill the air,
surrounding the planet in a cloud of smoke...This cloud will cut of the rays of
the sun, turning daylight into twilite...This cloud will also be a blanket to
keep the survivors of the great shaking from freezing...The cloud will remain
for twenty-five years before the sun shines through again, to smile upon the new
earth...Most Elders today speak of hard times coming...This is that hard time...
Following this there will be two-hundred years of peace
The survivors that make it through the rebirth of the earth into the fourth
dimension will no longer want the negative things of life, the crime, rape,
lies, war, abuse, any evil thing...These survivors will teach the children only
the positive, the love which comes from the four guiding principals of
"Share, Care, Respect and Teach" that our grandfathers and
grandmothers before us lived by...These first teachers will still carry a memory
though of the negative things they witnessed...
And following that will be even a greater peace
The children who grow to be the new teachers will not even have the memory of
the negative aspects that we suffer through life today as we know it...They will
only teach pure peace, bringing back the four guiding principals, once again in
the true meaning of these principals...
End of prophecy...
It is with sadness that I inform those who listen, that there will only be
.02 percent of the global population that will survive this catastrophic
event...That is roughly about 137 million people worldwide...
The good news is that these people are awakening today, finding each other,
coming together in groups here and there...These ones will enter the fourth
dimension, advance to a higher understanding and be gifted with amazing
abilities... These people will be able to communicate with the mind, talk with
each other through the mind without speaking...These people will be able to
teleport, simply thinking where they will want to be and then they are
there...There will be no viruses in this new dimension...There will be no
mosquitos in this new dimension...There will also be no money or use for
money...This is the root of evil...Instead the people will share their abilities
with each other...What one shares will be returned in sharing...All men and
women will stand as equals, with no one person greater than another...
Now I will tell you that I have seen this great planet with my own eyes...It is
between us and the sun...It can only be seen looking through a special
glass...This glass is a #10 welders glass, the one that fits into the shield
that a welder uses...This glass can be bought separate from the welders
shield...Holding it straight in front of you looking at the sun, you will see a
sun with a fuzzy glare around it...You cannot see the planet holding the glass
like this...It must be held on a tilted angle to your eyes until the fuzzy glare
disappears...Then you can see the planet against the sun...It is at the moment
about the size of a heavy pencil dot...It moves position around the sun on
different days...It is fast approaching the position where the planet will pass
by the earth...
The signs I have seen leading up to this is the constellations of stars being
out of place as the earth wobbles now in front of the Planet X that is
approaching...I have seen the moon not make the trip through the sky where it
has gone so many times before, taking a new path through the sky... I have
watched all the plants grow, changing their pattern of growth, coming in seasons
that are not when these plants should grow...I have seen the young birds fall
from the sky when the snows came too soon and froze these little ones...I have
heard the crys of sorrow fron their parents when their young ones perished...I
have seen the young trees in the forest snap their trunks under the weight of
frost, snow and fall to the forest floor to be the materials which will burn in
the great fire...I have seen the animals drop in numbers, live only in colonies
instead of spread throughout the forest...I have listened to the news of animals
dieing from strange sicknesses...I have seen the results of man when he strives
to get more money, the pollutants he places upon the earth in this quest...
These warning are also known to be in the scriptures of the bible, written there
long ago to tell us of the event that happened long ago and to warn us of this
one that is fast approaching, coming in the very near future...No one of us
knows the exact date but it is soon, perhaps within the next couple of months
I could say so much more, but the last I will tell you in this warning is that
when the earth begins to turn once again, that the sun will rise in the west and

Several weeks ago, I sent you the article entitled "Is The End Of The
World As We Know It Right Around The Corner?" and informed you that I would
let you know when this guy named Aussie Bloke makes his last post. Well, it
After 2 Weeks of visiting his family/saying goodbye, Aussie Bloke came
back and true to his word, posted on the 29th of May who he is. His comments are
5:19 am EDT Re: Aussie Bloke Vol.#3
Ok...here it is. I AM DR GARTREL. Happy now? As for what I know....I've
already told you. You want bloody details....you have them already. You want to
know what will happen?...read the above posts. You don't believe me?...YOUR
problem! YOU have brains...USE THEM....as I've encouraged you all to do all
along!!! READ THE BLOODY SIGNS>>>>>>>but no...some remain
flaming BLIND!!!! because they WANT TO. Wont change a thing. I am screwed
now...cats out of the bag now...I am who I am....and who gives a ____. IM BLOODY
ANGRY!!!!! DO you people have ANY BLOODY IDEA at ALL what it has been like for
myself and others who have known about this for BLOODY TWO DECADES!!!!!!!! But
no...WELL BUGGER IT ALL!!!!!! For those who have patiently waited for me I am
truly sorry for not doing the expected. I told you all weeks ago exactly where
and when...you have the details already. The reason? THINK about it!!! IF I had
told you all back then that the information WAS in fact THE information you all
wanted....the site would have shut down. I had to do it this way...the
information has been out for over two weeks now...and the ptb can now do bugger
all about it. I have been around them long enough to know how they think and
what they would do...now they can do nothing. The times locations and eta of the
cloud and objects has already been posted. NOW all you have to do is hope to
hell that someone out there copied it. NOW...GET THE WORD OUT!!!! THIS IS LEGIT.
FAREWELL TO ALL. SEE YOU IN ETERNITY.
Someone did some research on Aussie Bloke and found out that he is indeed
who he say's he is, which makes the entire thread that I had sent you several
weeks ago even more disturbing. Here is the info that has been pulled about him:

I am going to leave your readers (if you decide to post this) with several
links, and information that I have been able to pull about this "end of the
world" scenario. It is not just Aussie Bloke who is talking about these
inbound comets, there are also some very disturbing signs happening which leads
one to believe that either there are some incredible coincidences going on, or
Aussie Bloke is right, and we will have "hell on earth" in June.
By the way, here are the days and the events which are supposed to happen
June 8-9 Dust Cloud begins to reach the Earth and darkening of the skies.
June 18-20 1st impact
June 24-25 2nd impact
June 27-28 3rd impact of the "anomaly"
Now for the coincidences. The first is stock market site article http://www.urbansurvival.com/week.htm
that talks about something I had posted on my last email to you about an
intercepted transmission from Ham operators about something that is supposed to
hit earth in June. It was called: Is "Snowball" A Coincidence?
Here is an interesting article I pulled just a few days ago. These
fireballs have increased significantly over the last several weeks and are
Fireball Near Grover´s Mill, N.J.
Startled New Jersey residents tied-up the phone lines late this evening
calling authorities to report a large orange fireball that passed over the town
and apparently hit the ground several miles west of Grover´s MIll. No reports
of fires or injuries from the area have been made, but locals expressed concern
that the unknown phenomena had made a rumbling noise when it passed over that
was strong enough to rattle windows and frighten pets.
"I thought a jet was coming down right in the street," said
Betty Ocker, a housewife in Grover´s Mill, "it was loud, and I mean really
Police have asked residents to clear up the telephone lines and use them
only for emergency purposes until things get worked out, said a town
spokesperson. Apparently the local districts received so many calls after the
meteor passed overhead that the lines jammed and they have been unable to handle
normal calls for police assistance.
Local fire teams were dispatched to the woods west of town to make sure
that no fires were started by the space rock, but none of them have reported
finding anything as yet.
Here was a comment from someone on the same "Aussie Bloke"
thread making comments about what was being discussed (too many coincidences

I am an historian from the border region of Austria with some background
in the diplomatic corps, 65 years old and now semi-retired.
I have heard about the ´Aussie Bloke´ postings from a young relative of
my family and what I have read has struck a chord in me. In short, there are
things happening at a diplomatic level in Europe that point to a major
catastrophe within weeks, if not days.
RE: Emergency planning, naval and military mobilization
Yes, this is indeed something I wanted to highlight, although I am aware
that some aspects of the naval mobilization are now in the public news domain.
What you are seeing here is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of a
longer and finely coordinated military posture that is being coordinated in
tandem with confidential inter-governmental briefings taking place under the
auspices of Swiss officials in Geneva.
Signs abound. There is a certain sub-strata of the civil service in London
that, together with senior emergency planning officers, has been evacuated from
its headquarters in the British capital. This took place very recently.
Many US military bases outside of home territory that were falling into
disuse have been frantically refurbished and restocked over the last 18 months,
and one must ask oneself why this is happening. The standard reason given for
these unprecedented upgrades is ´preparedness´ in the
so-called war on terrorism.
The United States military infrastructure is actually quite widely
dispersed; a catastrophe affecting the land mass of North America alone would
therefore not imperil the operational integrity of the US High Command. The same
principle applies to American financial and economic instruments deployed ´in
expatriate´: instruments largely inured against an anticipated collapse of the
domestic banking and credit markets.
I found this gentleman's writings on projected meteor impacts rather
interesting, as his predicted dates of arrival dovetail rather neatly with the
current and future logistics pertaining to premium shipping lines, the navies of
several large nations, military contingents and the movements of elite
The nation most advanced in this field of planning is Switzerland, where
many in senior positions, especially in the security and medical professions,
have been put on Stufe 2 since the beginning of April 2004. Even during the Cold
War, most memorably the Cuban Crisis, the levels raised were hardly ever above
I believe the levels in both Austria and Germany are lower. In the case of
the latter, this is on no account due to ignorance or poor planning resources,
but rather because of their concerns with secrecy and forcing a run on
resources. People in Germany - and I live on the border, so I know - are
becoming aware that something strange is transpiring within the emergency
planning regime, if only because there has been extensive re-testing of the
outdated airborne attack warning sirens.
I still keep in touch with many friends and colleagues who work for the
diplomatic corps in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, many
of whom are currently spending an inordinate amount of their residual time
locked in emergency preparedness that goes way beyond any threat that can be
reasonably ascribed to terrorism.
Here is one that talks about some very strange things that the federal
reserve is doing which leads one to think they know something is about to
happen. I don't know what the heck they are talking about, but it sounds like
something quite disturbing is coming: http://www.safehaven.com/article-1597.htm
"Let me just say from the outset that the Federal Reserve has
confirmed our Stock Market Crash forecast by raising the Money Supply (M-3) by
crisis proportions, up another 46.8 billion this past week. What awful calamity
do they see? Something is up. This is unprecedented, unheard-of pre-catastrophe
M-3 expansion. M-3 is up an amount that we´ve never seen before without a
crisis - $155 billion over the past 4 weeks, a $2.0 trillion annualized pace, a
22.2 percent annualized rate of growth!!! There must be a crisis of historic
proportions coming, and the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States is making
sure that there is enough liquidity in place to protect our nation´s fragile
financial system. The amazing thing is, the Fed´s actions mean they know what
is about to happen. They are aware of a terrible, horrific imminent event. What
could it be?
One can draw no other conclusion except that the Fed is acting
irresponsibly in its managing the money supply, in fulfilling its duty to
"maintain a stable currency." I reject the notion that the Fed is
acting irresponsibly. No, something is up, bigger than we have ever seen in the
history of the United States. Let me ramble. Perhaps they simply see the ominous
technical landscape we have been warning about in recent issues, and are
attempting to pull out all the stops to avert the predicted crash. The recent
rally in just about everything is similar to 2003´s market behavior when the
Fed pumped massive amounts of liquidity into the system during the first half of
the year. This time seems different. The amount of liquidity is too large. The
Fed is deflating the value of the monetary base by a fifth! Why are they willing
to do this? Wisdom says something bad is up - big time."
Yet another one which talks about the UK preparing for evacuations:
Lastly, did you know that just about every major countries navy's will be
at sea in June? Apparently, deep water is much more safe than docking in shallow
water if strong waves are blown inland. Here are some comments from one of the
forums along with some links for proof of what is going on.
Just why is it that nearly our entire naval fleet, have unprecedented
orders to leave for the Oceans? AND, they aren't alone. At least parts of Iran,
Britain, Australia, China, France, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea,
Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Vietnam are going too. Makes me want to find out where
the British Navy is holing up these days. And what of the Russians? hmmm....
Does anyone ever stay home and protect their own borders anymore? Isn't that
what they are supposed to be doing? Something is very, very fishy here!"
Let's go through a list of which countries are putting navies to sea for
the month of June. Take the U.S. naval group's departure from San Diego. What's
the official story of the 6,000+ sailors leaving Monday?
(Norfolk) a local television station in Norfolk reports that a total of
seven carrier strike groups are putting to sea in June - which if I'm not
mistaken is an unprecedented move: "While the Navy won't say where the
seven carrier groups are going, the carriers not already deployed are expected
to be gone for only one to two months." Story (RealPlayer needed) at
http://www.wavy.com/Global/story.asp?S=1902088&nav=23iiNU2h (England) The
British are also putting an unusual number of ships to sea during June. http://www.navynews.co.uk/articles/2004/0405/0004052601.asp
Meantime, Channel 13 in Hampton Roads, VA reports in part that:
"Called "Exercise Blinding Storm" by the United States and
"Exercise Rapid Alliance" by the U.K., the training will involve about
30,000 troops from seven nations in exercises off and on the coast of North
Carolina. Dutch marines and French soldiers will take part, as well as a
Peruvian submarine and contingents from Germany and Canada. The flotilla is
expected to set sail Tuesday, with the two-week amphibious exercise scheduled to
begin June 10. The British landing platform dock ship Albion has already
arrived. It carried four Challenger II battle tanks — the British equivalent
of the U.S. M1-A1 Abrams tank. The tanks will be sent ashore aboard the ship's
new landing craft during the exercise. The biggest British ship — the aircraft
carrier Invincible — also has docked with a crew of 1,050. " http://www.wvec.com/sharedcontent/APStories/stories/D82SAKN80.html

thing causing this.

Meteorite touches down in NZ home
A meteorite has crashed through the roof of a house in Auckland, New Zealand,
much to the surprise of the home's owners.
Scientists were sceptical about the report but have now confirmed the 1.3
kilogram rock has fallen from space.
It is only the ninth meteor to land in New Zealand.
Its rarity makes it valuable to collectors as well as scientists.
Joel Schiff, from Auckland University, says the circumstances of the meteor's
discovery also add to its value.
"Falling through a roof is really an exceptional event that rarely happens,
and this is a beautiful large specimen," he said.
Scientists plan to analyse the chemical composition of the meteorite to find out
more about where it came from.
Meteorite Smashes Through Home
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (June 13) - A grapefruit-sized meteorite smashed through
the roof of a New Zealand house, hitting a couch and bouncing off the ceiling
before coming to rest under a computer.
The 2.9 pound chunk of space debris dropped out of the sky and plummeted through
the tiled roof of the Auckland home on Saturday.
"I was in the kitchen doing breakfast and there was this almighty
explosion," owner Brenda Archer told the Sunday Star-Times newspaper.

The Archers, who are following expert advice by drying the rock out in their
oven, plan to sell it or give it to a museum.
Experts believe the meteorite, a chunk of an asteroid, could be worth more than
$6,300, the newspaper said.

A meteorite started a grass fire when it landed in Ventura,
California. 6,000 acres burned.
(reported by a citizen who lives in the area - on the Art Bell radio
show on 6-12-04 - She said there was nothing on the news except how big the
fire was. Nobody but her seemed to have seen the meteorite, which was so
large her face got hot on one side as it came down and started the fire. She
said she thought it landed about 3 miles from her exact location.
Meteorite sighted in NSW
June 17, 2004
A METEORITE reportedly the size
of a house fell on the NSW south coast overnight, exploding in a bright flash,
police said today.
A driver on the Hume Highway shortly after 9pm (AEST) near Menangle
reported an object the size of a house falling from the sky.
The object fell east of the Hume Highway, possibly in an escarpment near
the top of a hill at Bulli, police were told.
The meteorite was described as glowing silver in colour and similar to
an artillery shell when it exploded with a bright flash on impact.
Workers at the Sydney Airport Tower said they saw a meteorite about 9pm,
No other reports were received by police and extensive police patrols of
the area did not turn up the space debris.
Australians Report Meteorite Explosion
By Associated Press
June 17, 2004, 12:30 PM EDT
SYDNEY, Australia -- People claiming they saw a "house-sized"
meteorite slam into Earth and explode with a flash may actually have seen a
small space rock streaking through the atmosphere as it burned up, an
astronomer said Thursday.
Air traffic controllers on duty at Sydney Airport Tower saw a meteorite
around 9 p.m. (1100 GMT) Wednesday, but did not give details of its size.
Police said several people just south of Sydney reported seeing a huge
meteorite whizzing overhead before exploding. The report that it was the
size of a house came from one motorist traveling on a highway about 50
kilometers (30 miles) south of the city.
"Extensive police patrols of the area could not locate the
object," police said in a statement.
Australian National University astronomer Vince Ford said searchers were
unlikely to find anything because whatever was rocketing to earth likely
burned up before it hit, creating the illusion of a large object streaking
across the night sky.
If a house-sized meteorite had hit the earth, it would have made a sonic
boom and registered on seismological graphs, Ford said.
Prof. Steven Williams of the Grove Creek Observatory earlier told Sky News
that he had received phone calls from about six people who said they saw a
"gigantic streak" heading south. He said he could not explain the
phenomenon and hoped somebody would find some trace of the meteorite.
"If I had a helicopter ... I would be out there myself trying to find
it," he told Sky.

SCIENCE NEWS OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM
of a bolide
Last year, a brilliant fireball shattered above
the Chicago suburb of Park Forest, Illinois.
Astronomers have pieced together a detailed
postmortem of the event.
by Andrew Fazekas
May 26, 2004
A little over a year ago, on March 27, 2003,
a spectacular fireball lit up northern
Illinois and sent chunks of space rock
crashing into the streets and roofs of a
quiet Chicago suburb of Park Forest.
Incredibly, the kamikaze dive of this
extraterrestrial visitor was caught —
completely by accident — on police car and
security video cameras, providing scientists
an amazing opportunity to study in detail
the last fiery moments of a meteor’s life.
The Park Forest fireball represents the
largest bolide to streak across a densely
populated area in modern history. "With
only two such events occurring on land
anytime during a year around the world, this
was unique by all standards," says
Wayne Edwards, study team member and Ph.D.
candidate from the University of Western
Ontario. Many different visual and acoustic
instruments around the region observed the
object’s descent. Astronomers have used
these measurements to determine the Park
Forest meteorite’s pre-fall orbit. This is
only the eighth time astronomers have been
able to calculate a reliable orbit for a
By synchronizing eyewitness videos,
audio, and seismic measurements on the
ground with infrared satellite imagery,
Edwards and his team have been able to
determine the fireball’s original spin
rate, trajectory, and velocity accurately.
Before entering Earth’s atmosphere, the
Park Forest object weighed 12.5 tons (11
metric tons), was traveling at 12 miles (20
kilometers) per second, and packed the
equivalent energy of nearly 500 tons of TNT.
Audible detonations occurred as the
meteor punched through the atmosphere and
broke into smaller fragments. Analysis of
audio and seismic recordings clearly matched
three distinctly visible fragmentation
events. The main fragmentation event,
visible on a police-car video, occurred at a
height of 44 miles (70 km) and was quickly
followed by two smaller detonations at 22
and 16 miles (36 and 26 km).
"Incredibly, we can trace the meteor in
the video back to the very earliest time in
its entry into our atmosphere," says
Based on a computer model of the
meteorite’s fragmentation rate, the team
believes the bolide actually shattered early
in its entry into our atmosphere and simply
traveled as a collection of smaller pieces.
Most of these eventually disintegrated,
leaving behind only the 40 pounds (18
kilograms) of meteorites recovered. Before
its fatal plunge to Earth, the object
followed the orbit of a typical Apollo-type,
With enough data from different meteor
falls, a clearer picture may emerge as to
the sources of these meteorites and what
type of asteroid they come from. "With
enough orbits and enough samples from the
ground, we can start to determine what the
distribution of this material is in the
solar system," explains Edwards. Going
beyond Park Forest, the Ontario team plans
to establish a system of cameras
specifically designed to catch fireballs and
determine their orbits.
The team presented its findings at the
2004 Joint Assembly of the American and
Canadian Geophysical Union in Montreal,
Canada, last week.
JUNE BOOTID METEORS: Earth is heading for
a cloud of dust shed by Comet Pons-Winnecke
in the 19th century. An encounter with the
cloud might produce a pleasing meteor shower
before sunrise on Wednesday, June 23rd. Or
not. Forecasters aren't sure. If a shower
materializes, sky watchers in western North
America and across the Pacific Ocean are
favored to see it.
Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs)
are space rocks larger than approximately 100m
that can come closer to Earth than 0.05 AU.
None of the known PHAs are on a collision
course with our planet, although
astronomers are finding new
ones all the time.

"It was loud enough to shake the house
and rattle the windows," said Kesterson,
owner of Marshfield TV and Electronics.
"The dog's probably still hiding."
The rural Webster County man rushed outside,
not sure what he'd find.
"There was a smoke trail in the sky, but
it wasn't straight," he said. "It
kind of came down at an angle, like a jet
contrail that the wind had distorted."
The Webster County Sheriff's Department
fielded nearly 20 phone calls from area
residents around 9:20 a.m., concerned
something had blown up.
Dispatchers checked with area quarries, which
reported no blasting activity.
And no supersonic aircraft were in the skies
above Webster County, according to Springfield
airport and Fort Leonard Wood officials.
NASA scientist Mike Mumma said the likely
culprit was a "sizable" meteor
ripping apart as it blasted through the
atmosphere at 100,000 mph.
"From the description of buildings and
windows shaking, that's a fairly significant
sonic boom," said Mumma, chief scientist
of planetary research at Goddard Research
Center in Greenbelt, Md. "It would have
been much larger than fist-sized to make that
loud of a noise and generate that much energy.
I couldn't speculate how big, though."
Don Yeomans, manager of NASA's Near Earth
Object monitoring program in Pasadena, Calif.,
said a meteor that shakes homes and windows
could have been the size of a small car.

On June 20, the date when Aussie Bloke
said we could expect the Debris Cloud to
manifest quite near Earth, SOHO closed its
camera 'doors' presumably to protect the
lens from damage. (Gee, I'm just sure it is
a coincidence, aren't you?)
Spaceweather.com told us that the
'debris cloud' we are going through was left
over from a comet that went by in the 1819:
Comet P7 Pons-Winnecke. At least one layer
of this debris cloud has been named: The
June Bootids, due to its appearance in front
of the Bootes Constellation.
However, there are several other
'debris rings' making their play towards the
Earth right now. They all may come from the
initial shock of Comet P7, or even P7 itself
may have come from the shock of a Stellar
Explosion that occurred around the time of
Jesus birth. This Neutron explosion sent
forth a shock wave of ionic particles which
bumped against the Oort Cloud, creating both
comets and smaller debris clouds, many which
have an orbital affinity with the Planet
For instance, we also have the Phi
Saggitarids; and, the June Aquilids,
confirmed in 1968 by none other than Dr.
The following link by a Japanese
scientist gives an excellent summation (with
pictures) of what might be happening with
this rather large layered Debris Cloud which
certainly appears to come FROM THE SOUTH.
You'll notice the various rings of debris.
Apparently each ring becomes its own group
The following article suggests that
everytime the Bootids have gone their course
they appear to leave a 'circle' of debris,
much like a toroid. Apparently we are due to
go through as many as 4 of these layers of
debris within the next few days:
"In recent days, a different
forecast for the June Bootids has been
issued by Jerimie Vaubaillon of the Institut
de Mécanique Céleste et de Calcul des Éphémérides,
in Paris, France and Russians Sergey
Dubrovsky and Sergey Shanov.
Their calculations suggest that the
Earth will interact with a swarm of

Pons-Winnecke at not just one, but several
of its past visits to the Sun, most notably
in 1819, 1825, 1830, 1836 and perhaps 1875.
In addition, the predicted peak for this
activity comes several days earlier than
Rendtel's suggestion: Wednesday, June 23 at
11h GMT (7 a.m. EDT).
Western North America and the Pacific
Ocean will still be in darkness at that
time, and are favored with the best possible
views. But should the activity last for many
hours, then it could be worthwhile to
carefully watch the sky from Tuesday night,
the 22nd, on until the first light of dawn

Did June 3rd Puget Sound Meteor Cause Micro
By Michael Goodspeed
The majority of news accounts of the June
3rd meteor over Washington state near Puget
Sound have described the meteor as
approximately between the size of a
"baseball" and a "computer
monitor.' I am not a scientist, so I am
genuinely curious if a baseball-sized or
monitor-sized meteor can cause a
"micro-earthquake," measuring 1.6
on the richter scale.
I have just received this information from a
gentleman named Charles, which seems to
indicate that at the estimated time of the
meteor sighting (2:40 AM PST), a 1.6 quake
was registered by the Pacific Northwest
Following this information, I will share
with you an anecdotal account I have
received from a woman in Eugene, OR, that is
worthy of examination.

Large Meteor Observed Over South East Texas
It'll be interesting to see if this gets
reported in the mainstream media.
At 04:15 06/27/04 an operator at a major
Petro-Chem complex in Texas City, Texas
observed a brightening of the sky on one of
the unit video cameras. No sooner than his
attention was diverted to the camera he
observed a very bright streak across the sky
in his field of view which is westerly. At
this point he rushed out side the control
room in time to see a very large colorful
meteor streaking across the sky west to east
at a high altitude. This was also observed
by other employees at the plant.
Simultaneously another employee in League
City, Texas was walking from his house to
his car, leaving for work, and observed the
same object. He described it as lighting the
sky about as bright as a full moon with a
nebulous head similar to a comet. It was
leaving streamers of blue, red, yellow and
green behind resembling the tail of a comet.
He described it as larger than an airliner
at low altitude but was very high and

This is what is known thus so far:
If you recall some years ago..(was on

there were reported to be three incoming
objects – recall the NASA computer
operator who hid in a cave with supplies
etc – the code names were Bismarck –
Monitor and Titanic.. For ease of
reference, these code names are being
deployed once more by certain groups to
follow the progress etc,..
So..what do we have..
Object #1 – BISMARCK – flew on by on
time a few days ago and was highly
fragmented, while the bulk of the object
flew past beyond moons distance..- a few
large objects from it skipped along the
planetary grid…approx distance to the
moon – 250,000 miles..while a few
smaller objects were observed, and some
landed, in the following areas:
If you recall over the last few days,
quakes were observed in a number of
relate areas and fireballs and meteors
Object #2 or MONITOR – due date
July…no definitive date as yet
This will be a fly by well beyond the
moon..so we are not expecting too many
effects, possibly a few meteors..but the
way things are going who the heck knows
for certain..! The size of this object
is said to be approx 20-30 miles..so let
us hope it indeed passes well beyond the
Now..Object #3 TITANIC
This is where we may have a “problem”..to
put it mildly. Due date Early November
This object is a big sucker…approx 60
miles wide, and because of its size and
unstable path the effects of this mother
are not really known.
1 Solar activity..depending on what
effect the sun has on this sucker
2 Planet earth.. depending on how we are
placed at the time..
3. The asteroid itself.. The merw size
of this mother will have its own geo
field and gravity force.-.you could say
this was a “mini planet”.-thus the
effects and orbital path will be
Hopefully, to minimise damage, earth may
be in a position by then to have turned
slightly and in connection with the

that the US gov have prepared a bunker

appears that the combination of solar

Wednesday night, officials said.
The National Weather Service said it had

likely a large meteor.
John Clabes, a regional spokesman for the
Federal Aviation Administration, said
there were no reports of missing aircraft
in the area.
In Tulsa, John Southern said he saw what
he thought was an airplane on fire while
driving near U.S. 75 in Tulsa.
"It looked like an airplane going

Southern said the object flew to the
southeast before he lost sight of it.

A BURST OF METEORS OVER FINNISH COASTAL
WATERS EARLY ON
Posted By: NASAGUY
Date: Tuesday, 13 July 2004
Helsinki - A burst of meteors over Finnish
coastal waters early on Tuesday prompted
hundreds of Finns to mistakenly report the
natural phenomenon as emergency flares from
distressed vessels, officials said.
"The shower might have lasted just a few
seconds, but so far we have received over 70
calls. The first hour was very busy
here," said Matti Salokorpi, senior
lieutenant with the maritime rescue centre in
Vaasa, some 420 kilometres northwest of
On a normal night the rescue centre might get
around 10 calls, he said, adding that Vaasa's
ambulance and fire services had received as
many calls due to the natural phenomenon
created when space debris hits the earth's
atmosphere at high speed.
Several other rescue centres along the
Finnish west coast reported numerous similar
calls, according to media here.
One of the callers, cruising in his pleasure
boat off the coast, described the phenomenon
as a red fireball moving swiftly through the
night sky, spewing sparks and leaving a trail
of vapour before turning white as it entered
the atmosphere, Finnish news agency FNB
A glowing meteor could easily be mistaken for
an emergency flare, which is an international
alarm signal for sailors in need of
assistance, Salokorpi said.

copper specks is a visitor from outer space.

Dinesh Patel said. "At first I thought it
was a rock, and was going to put it in the
trash. But it was too heavy."
The brothers were sound asleep early Tuesday
at their hotel on Pacific Coast Highway when
they were both startled awake by a loud noise.
Narish Patel described it as a "zzzzz"
sound, while Dinesh Patel said it resembled a
"car squeaking against a wall."
Apparently nobody else heard it, or at least,
they didn't contact the Redondo Beach police,

exactly what the brothers found. But after

came from the moon or Mars, the Patels would
really have hit the celestial jackpot.
"If it's lunar or Martian, it could be
worth a couple thousand dollars a gram,"
Blood said of the rock that weighs about 20
grams. "But the greatest likelihood is
it's common chondrite."
In which case, the entire stone would be worth
maybe a couple hundred bucks.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Internet site ebay.com

in price from $6.99 to $1,000.
Who would spend so much on so little? Very few

"It's a very intense industry that's very

New Martian meteorite found in
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- A meteorite from Mars
has been discovered in Antarctica, one of only
about 30 known Martian space rocks on
"We've gotten something like 13,000
meteorites from Antarctica and this is only
the sixth one from Mars," Timothy McCoy,
curator of meteorites at the Smithsonian
Institution, said by telephone on Wednesday.
The rest of the known Martian meteorites on
this planet were found outside Antarctica,
McCoy said by telephone. What makes this rock
special is its comparatively large size, he
said: "It's a 700 gram rock (about 1.5
pounds) but by meteorite standards it's a
mountain of material."
Scientists can do effective work on amounts as
little as one-thousandth of a gram, McCoy
At this point, there is no suggestion that the
new meteorite -- discovered December 15, 2003,
on an ice field some 466 miles (750 km) from
the South Pole -- bears any evidence of
possible microscopic fossilized life. Some
scientists believe an earlier meteorite found
in Antarctica and publicly unveiled in 1996
bore such signs; it is still being
investigated. The new Martian meteorite was
found as part of a cooperative effort funded
by NASA and supported by the National Science
Foundation. Smithsonian scientists said they
can establish the origin of the Martian
meteorites by their mineralogy, texture and

There have been sightings of a meteor streaking its way across the upper South
Island and lower North Island. Reports have come in from
North Canterbury and Buller on the West Coast.
A New Zealand Post plane spotted the show of lights just north of Wellington at
about 1.50am. Sergeant Andrzej Kowalczyk says the
pilots of the plane describe seeing a bright white and green light that lit up
the cockpit as if it were daylight.
The pilots established that the meteor had crashed into the sea somewhere off
the east coast of the lower North Island.

Fireball Hits Mountainside
In Wales, UK - News Blackout
We are presently receiving info from eyewitnesses on the ground. So far,there
appears to be a complete news blackout.
A huge fireball lit up the night sky over Cardiff in Wales UK on Friday night.
Four hours later, at 2:45 am Saturday 31st July 2004 a second object impacted a
remote hillside near Cwmaman in Aberdere, Wales. Witnesses say the impact lit up
the sky and a huge explosion shook all the houses in the area.
Three fires were seen burning on the hillside and it was soon covered with
police and firemen with torches.
Despite an obvious large presence of the local authorities who cordoned off the
area, subsequent enquiries to the police and the fire brigade have been met with
denial of any events that night.
Police claim that there is no record on their computer of anything happening
that night. The mystery deepens. More info to follow in due course!
I have just received a report back from friends who tried to reach the
cordoned-off area at the impact site. They said... "The event happened at
the very top of the hill. Late tonight 9.15pm Sunday, we were close to the spot,
but it is a bit inaccessible. There were sounds of very heavy equipment moving
about very close. Sounded like bulldozers? No further info from other sources
Will give you a bell after 8.00 tomorrow (Mon)" The lack of info from
Police, Fire Dept or press is puzzling! If I get more info, I will relay it to
you as soon as possible. Many thanks, Phil.
Sorry, I forgot to answer your question. There is no URL as yet. This incident
was reported to me by somebody who lives at the foot of the hillside and about a
mile away. The terrain is very steep and overgrown. This explosion shook his
house. He phoned the incident in at 2:45 am.
A local skywatcher saw an enormous meteorite go over at 11:45 pm which lit up
the entire sky. (3 hours before the event) He phoned back soon after to say that
three large fires were burning at the top of the hill and there were lots of
people with torches making their way up the hillside. On going to investigate he
was turned back by the Fire Brigade who had closed the road.
The puzzling thing is that although the fire fighters were there, the
authorities refuse to admit anything happened. Same with the media. Local Radio,
newspapers, TV all claim to know nothing about it. My friends are pursuing this
and will get back to me later today.

Fireball seen on southern horizon likely a meteor
OKLAHOMA CITY -- A large meteor may have been what residents in Oklahoma, Texas,
Louisiana and parts of the south-central United States saw Wednesday night,
The National Weather Service said it had received numerous reports of a
fireball in the sky around 9:30 p.m. from central and southwestern Oklahoma to
northern Texas and other parts of the South.
Mike Berry, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in
Shreveport, La., said he fielded about 20 calls from people asking about the
mysterious light. The Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office in northeast Louisiana
reported around five calls and forwarded them to the weather office.
After discussions with the Department of Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management Agency, the weather service said officials concluded that
what residents saw was likely a large meteor.
John Clabes, a regional spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration,
said there were no reports of missing aircraft in the area.
In Tulsa, John Southern said he saw what he thought was an airplane on
fire while driving near U.S. 75 in Tulsa.
"It looked like an airplane going down in flames really hard or fast
_ or space debris," said Southern, a freelance photographer. "It was
coming from a southwesterly direction."
When he got a closer look, he saw that the object had a definite central
"This was just like a blob," Southern said. "I wouldn't say
it was a UFO, but I don't know. I thought surely something had happened."
Southern said the object flew to the southeast before he lost sight of it.
"It was just a flash in the pan. It was over in about three
seconds," he said.
A similar phenomenon occurred Dec. 1, 2001, when residents in Oklahoma,
Texas and Nebraska witnessed space debris breaking up as it entered the
Witnesses reported seeing long streaks of light moving across the sky and
breaking into about 30 "little balls with tails."

Woman 'hit by meteorite'
A great-grandmother is believed to have
become the first person in the country to
have been hit by a meteorite. Pauline Aguss,
76, was hanging out washing in her garden in
Lowestoft, Suffolk, when a walnut-size rock
struck her arm causing a small, deep gash.
Her husband Jack, 77, found the chunk of
brown metallic rock on the grass and is to
send it for analysis. If it is confirmed to
be a meteorite, then Mrs Aguss will go down
as the first person in Britain to be struck
The rock fell last week when the annual
perseid meteorite shower from the asteroid
belt between Jupiter and Mars was at its
peak. The last known victim of a meteorite
was a dog in Egypt, killed when it was
struck on the head.

CU-Boulder Researchers to Analyze
Meteorite That Fell Outside Berthoud, Colo.
BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 11 (AScribe
Newswire) -- University of Colorado at Boulder researchers will scientifically
analyze a meteorite that fell outside Berthoud, Colo., last week, only the fifth
to ever have been seen falling and subsequently recovered in Colorado, experts
The meteorite weighs more than 2
pounds and is about as large as a baseball, although it is irregular in shape.
It appears to be made of igneous rock and is melted on its surface from the heat
of entering the atmosphere. The meteorite probably broke off an asteroid or
"Its igneous composition reveals
that it was chipped off an asteroid large enough to undergo some form of
volcanic activity," said Nick Schneider, associate professor of
astrophysical and planetary sciences.
Megan and John Whiteis of Berthoud,
and Megan's son, Casper, provided the meteorite to aerospace engineering
sciences assistant professor Scott Palo for scientific analysis after they saw
it land in their backyard. The couple had just walked out their back door into
the yard at 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 5, when the meteorite flew over their heads and
landed about 100 feet ahead of them.
Megan's mother, Marilyn Meador,
contacted the National Center for Atmospheric Research and spoke with Dr. Maura
Hagan who emailed Palo. Palo is an expert in radio meteors -- the study of
ionized meteor trails in the upper atmosphere using radio waves. Palo spent the
next few days putting together a team of scientists interested in helping to
analyze the specimen. The team includes:
- Jack Murphy, curator emeritus of
the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, who is writing a book on Colorado
- Chris Peterson, of Cloudbait
Observatory, a Colorado fireball observation network in Guffey, Colo., who is
working to reconstruct the trajectory and orbit of the meteorite using
infrasound and observations
- Assistant Professor Stephen Mojzsis
of the CU-Boulder department of geological sciences
- Associate Professor Nick Schneider
of the CU-Boulder department of astrophysical and planetary sciences and the
Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP)
- Doug Duncan, director of Fiske
The first scientific test will
measure gamma rays being emitted by the meteorite. It is likely the test will be
performed at NASA's Johnson Space Center later this week. Because this is a
fresh fall, the volatile chemical species can be measured. Analysis of the rare
gasses and gamma ray emissions will provide information about the size and
history of the meteorite before it entered the Earth's atmosphere.
Analysis of the meteorite trajectory
and orbit also will be conducted in an effort to learn where this meteorite
originated. Over the past 7 years to 10 years, a surprising number of fireballs
have been observed during the first week of October. Scientists have little
understanding about the source of the fireballs but the Berthoud meteorite could
provide a wealth of information about these recent events. The possibility of
tracking a meteorite back to its place of origin in the asteroid belt is a rare
opportunity. Researchers are asking the public to report any fireball sightings
in the sky during October in order to help determine the meteorite's trajectory
and point of origin. Fireball sightings can be reported by going to
Residents of Berthoud also are asked
to keep their eyes open for any rocks that appear unusual with a smooth, black,
shiny crust. People who find objects they think may be a meteorite should
contact Jack Murphy at (000)-000-0000.
Discoverers Megan and John Whiteis
have expressed their keen interest in making the Berthoud meteorite available
for educational purposes. Until needed for scientific analysis, the meteorite
will be displayed and discussed in CU classrooms and at Fiske Planetarium. CU
faculty will work with local K-12 educators and the discoverers to bring the
excitement and importance of the Berthoud meteorite to schools and museums
around the state.
Viewing times at Fiske will be posted
at www.colorado.edu/fiske and requests for class visits should be made to

METEORITE FACT SHEET
CU-Boulder, Oct. 11, 2004
A meteoroid is a small object -
generally smaller than the size of a pebble - and usually comes from asteroids,
the moon, comets or Mars.
Thousands of meteorites fall to Earth
each year. Meteorites generally become visible at about 60 miles from the ground
due to the intense heating from striking the atmosphere at speeds of at least
20,000 mph. Only the largest meteors are bright enough to see in the daytime
The average weight of a shooting
star, or meteor, in the sky is less than one ounce -- about the size of a pea or
smaller. Larger meteors that hit the ground become meteorites by definition.
Most meteors decay into dust in the atmosphere and never make contact with
The largest known meteorite is a
70-ton specimen still embedded in the ground in Grootfontein in southwest
Africa. The largest meteorite ever found in the United States is the Willamette
meteorite, which was found in Oregon and weighs about 15 tons.
Fireballs are defined as any meteor
that is brighter than Venus in the night sky. The appearance of a fireball is
often followed by a sonic boom.
A meteorite generally is named for
the locale, region or town where it was found.
Meteorites generally are classified
into three categories: Stony, iron and stony-iron. Only about 10 per cent of the
meteorites that reach Earth are "iron meteorites." Iron meteorites are
rare because they typically become buried upon impact. Of the 75 meteorites that
have been recovered in Colorado, 14 are iron.
Stone meteorites can be divided into
chondrite and achondrite types. Chondrites contain chondrules, tiny, spherical
blobs of silicates from the earliest solar system formation which pre-date
Achondrite meteorites, like the one
recently discovered near Berthoud, Colo., make up about 7 percent of all known
meteorites. Achondrite meteorites are made from chondritic material that was
melted and re-crystalized while still on or within its parent solar system body.
Achondrite meteorites may be pieces
of planets and moons ejected during impacts or collisions eons ago and may have
traveled through the solar system for millions of years. The now-famous Allan
Hills meteorite from Mars was discovered in 1998 in Antarctica and continues to
be controversial since some scientists believe it contains microscopic evidence

Wednesday, November 09, 2005
-- Richard L. Hill
Fireballs -- large meteors that are a rare treat in fall's typically
cloudy weather -- have been spotted streaking across the Oregon sky in the past
Dick Pugh, a meteor expert with with the Cascadia Meteorite Laboratory at
Portland State University, said he received reports from surprised eyewitnesses
of fireballs Oct. 30 and Monday evening.
A Beaverton man reported seeing Monday's fireball at 7:16 p.m. It lasted
about four seconds and was nearly the diameter of a full moon.
"He said it moved from the northwest to the southwest and ended up
looking like a dumbbell," which indicates it probably was breaking up, Pugh
The fireballs are part of the annual Taurid meteor shower, which is caused
by the Earth passing through debris shed by comet Encke. The tiny dust grains
make white-hot streaks of light as they slam into the atmosphere at 65,000 mph.
The normally unremarkable Taurid shower is putting on a good show this
year, with Earth apparently going through a debris area with unusually large
The meteors are called Taurids because they seem to originate in the
constellation Taurus, which rises in the east around sunset and is nearly
overhead by midnight.
Pugh said just as the Taurid shower is fading, one of the year's better
meteor showers -- the Leonids -- will peak next week.
Anyone spotting a fireball can contact Pugh at 503-287-6733.-- Richard L.
1,400-Pound Meteorite Found In Kansas
Rare Find Is Largest Ever Found In U.S.
POSTED: 2:50 pm EST November 10, 2005
A man digging in Kansas found a 1,400-pound pallasite meteorite -- the largest
ever discovered in the United States.
Steve Arnold, who is a professional meteorite hunter, said he found the
rare stony-iron pallasite meteorite on a farm near Haviland.
"It's a gorgeous museum-quality specimen," Arnold said.
Arnold used special metal-detecting equipment to find it and needed a
backhoe to get it out of the ground.
Pallasite meteorites are considered so rare that estimates show they
account for only 1 percent of all meteorites on Earth.
The meteorite may be worth as much as $12 million, according to a Kansas
City television station.

Hayabusa spacecraft is on track to attempt a sampling of asteroid Itokawa on
a rescheduled practice run on November 9, the craft has approached within 230
feet (70 meters) of the asteroid during a descent test that verified the
probe’s guidance and navigation functions.
handling the Hayabusa spacecraft have clarified the issues that led to the
cancellation of a November 4 landing rehearsal. An onboard navigation computer
detected anomalous information during the practice run. The problem resulted
in an abort command being transmitted to the probe by Earth controllers,
thereby stopping the rehearsal. Subsequently, the spacecraft fired its
chemical engines and started ascent, backing away from the asteroid.
officials are now prepared to carry out a landing at the “Muses Sea” site,
performing sampling tasks on both November 19 and another touchdown on
November 25, according to the web site of the Institute of Space and
Astronautical Science (ISAS), a space science research division arm of the
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

asteroid Itokawa. One newly released image shows the shadow of the spacecraft
cast upon the asteroid’s surface.
Hayabusa roared off into space from Japan’s Kagoshima Space Center on May 9,
2003. The spacecraft arrived at its asteroid target on September 12 of this
only is Hayabusa equipped to collect samples of the asteroid for return to
Earth. A tiny robot will hop about Itokawa and relay pictures from the space

The second Asteroid named after Romany figure 9.
A recently-discovered asteroid in the Taurus constellation is likely to be named
after a Bulgarian folk singer AZIS. The asteroid, temporarily been called 2005
UT12, was spotted in the Taurus constellation by Bulgarian astronomers with the
help of scientis from Spain and UK."We want to name the asteroid after the
folk singer Azis, who is quite famous here." a spokesperson for the
Bulgarian scientific team explained.
Azis gained his
popularty as a folk singer. His real name is Vasco. He has performed a number of
popular songs, including 'I won't', 'Car serviceman', 'You don't know',
'Nobody's able', and others. Azis is also a political campaigner for the rights
of the minority Roma population. The past summer Azis attracted extra attention
by running for an MP post in the general elections' but didn't receive enough
votes to become a Member of the Parliament. Azis is also considered a bit
controversial figure in traditional Bulgaria, with his openly-homosexual ways.
According to information we have obtained so far, Azis has not yet commented on
this proposal. If he approves of the idea this will be the second asteroid that
has been named after a Romany figure. The first one is a small planet n.17 611,
which was spotted in 1995 and is orbiting between Mars and Jupiter. It was named
‘Jozkakubik‘ on 9rd of March 2001 dedicated to rememberance of a Romany
violinist Jožka Kubík (1907 – 1978) from Hrubá Vrbka, a village near Hodonín
in the Czech Republic.

The Three Days' Darkness
NEW YEAR'S EVE 1949 - My son, My son, I have been longing for this
hour in which I again shall reveal to you the great love of My heart. My
love for man is very great, especially for those who give themselves
to Me. They are My refuge and My
consolation in the many and terrible irreverences which I receive in
the Sacrament of My love.
Pray and make reparation to Me. Admonish others to do the same because
the time is near at hand in which I shall visit my unfaithful people
because they have not heeded the time of My grace. Persevere in
prayer, so that your adversary shall have no dominion over you. Tell
My people to be prepared at all times,
for My judgment shall come upon them suddenly and when least expected
- and not one shall
escape My hands, I shall find them all! I shall protect the just.
Watch the sun and moon and the stars of the Heavens-when they appear
to be unduly disturbed and restless, know that the day is not far
away. Stay united in prayer and watching until the angel of
destruction has passed your doors. Pray that these days will be
My beloved, have confidence. I am in the midst of you. My Kingdom
shall be glorified and My Name shall be blessed from the rising of the
sun unto the setting thereof; and to My Kingdom there shall be no end.
JANUARY 23, 1950 - Pray! Make reparation! Be fervent and practice
mortifications. Great things are at stake! Pray! Men are running
toward the abyss of Hell in great rejoicing and merry-making, as
though they were going to a masquerade ball or the wedding feast of
the devil himself! Assist Me in the salvation of souls. The measure of
sin is filled! The day of
revenge, with its terrifying happenings is near -- nearer then you can
imagine! And the world is seeping in false security! The
Divine Judgment shall strike them like a thunderbolt!
These Godless and wicked people shall be destroyed without mercy,
JANUARY 28, 1950 - Keep your windows well covered. Do not look out.
Light a blessed candle, which will suffice for many days. Pray the
Rosary. Read spiritual books. Make acts of Spiritual Communion, also
acts of love, which are so
pleasing to Us. Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the
ground, in order that many souls may be saved. Do not go outside the
house. Provide yourself with sufficient food. The powers of nature
shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make people tremble with fear.
Have courage! I am in the midst
as were the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorra of old.
Yes, I tell you their wickedness was not as great
as that of our human race today!
FEBRUARY 7, 1950 - Take care of
the animals during these days. I am the creator and preserver of
animals as well as man. I shall give you a few signs beforehand, at
which time you should place more food before them. I will preserve the
property of the elect, including the animals, for they shall be in
need of sustenance afterwards as well. Let no one go across the yard,
even to feed the animals-he who
steps outside will perish! Cover
your windows carefully. My elect shall not see My wrath. Have
confidence in Me, and I will be your protection. Your
confidence obliges Me to come to your aid.
The hour of My coming is
near! But I will show mercy. A most dreadful punishment will bear
witness to the times. My angels, who are to be the executioners of
this work, are ready with their pointed swords! They will take special
care to annihilate all those who mocked Me and would not believe in My

entire earth! Storms, bad weather, thunderbolts and earthquakes will
cover the earth for two days. An uninterrupted rain of fire will take
place! It will begin on during a very cold night. All this is to prove
that God is the Master of Creation.
Those who hope in Me, and
believe in My words, have nothing to fear because I will not forsake
them, nor those who spread My message. No harm will come to those who
are in the stated of grace and who seek My mother's protection.
That you may be prepared for these visitations, I will give you the
following signs and instructions: The
night will be very cold. The wind will roar. After a time thunderbolt
will be heard. Lock all the
doors and windows. Talk to no one outside the house. Kneel down before
a crucifix, be sorry for your sins, and beg My Mothers protection. Do
not look during the earthquake, because the anger of God is holy!
Jesus does not want us to behold the anger of God, because God's anger
must be contemplated with fear and trembling.
Those who disregard this advice will be killed instantly.
The wind will carry with it
poisonous gases which will be diffused over the entire earth.
Those who suffer and die
innocently will be martyrs and they will be with Me in My Kingdom.
Satan will triumph! But in three nights, the earthquake and fire will
cease. On the following day the sun will shine again, angels will
descend from Heaven and will spread the spirit of peace over the
earth. A feeling of immeasurable gratitude will take possession of
those who survive this most terrible ordeal, the impending punishment,
with which God will visit the earth since creation.
I have chosen souls in other countries too, such as Belgium,
Switzerland, Spain, who have received these revelations so that other
countries also may be prepared. Pray Rosary, but pray it well, so that
your prayers may reach Heaven. Soon
a more terrible catastrophe shall come upon the entire world, such as
never before has been witnessed, a terrible chastisement never before
How unconcerned men are
regarding these things! Which shall so soon come upon them, contrary
to all expectations. How indifferent they are in preparing themselves
for these unheard of events, through which they will have to pass so
The weight of Divine balance has reached the earth! The wrath of My
Father shall be poured out over the entire world! I am again warning
the world through your instrumentality, as I have so often done
The sins of men have multiplied beyond measure: irreverence in Church,
sinful pride committed in sham religious activities, lack of true
brotherly love, indecency in dress, especially at summer resorts . . .
The world is filled with iniquity.
This catastrophe shall come upon the earth like a flash of lightning! At
which moment the light of the morning sun shall be replaced by black
darkness! No one shall
leave the house or look out a window from that moment on. I Myself
shall come amidst thunder and lightning. The wicked shall behold My
There shall be great confusion because of this utter darkness in which
the entire earth shall be enveloped, and many, many shall die from
fear and despair.
Those who shall fight for My cause shall receive grace from My Divine
Heart; and the cry: "WHO IS LIKE UNTO GOD!" shall serve as a
means of protection to many. However, many shall burn in the open
fields like withered grass!
The Godless shall be annihilated, so that afterwards
On that day, as soon as complete
darkness has set in, no one shall leave the house or look from out of
the window. The darkness shall a day and a night followed by another
day and night, and another day-but on the night following, the stars
will shine again, and on the
next morning the sun shall rise again, and it will be SPRINGTIME!!
the just shall be able
to start afresh.
In the days of darkness, My
elect shall not sleep, as did the disciples in the garden of olives.
They shall pray incessantly, and they shall not be disappointed in Me.
I shall gather My elect. Hell will believe itself to be in possession
of the entire earth, but I shall reclaim it.
Do you, perhaps, think that I would
permit My Father to have such terrible chastisements come upon the
world, if the world would turn from iniquity to justice? But
because of My great love, these afflictions shall be permitted to come
upon man. Although many
shall curse Me, yet thousands of souls shall be saved through them. No
human understanding can fathom the depth of My love!

Pray! Pray! I desire your prayers. My dear Mother Mary, Saint Joseph,
Saint Elizabeth, Saint Conrad, Saint Michael, Saint Peter and the
little Therese, Your Holy Angels, shall be your intercessors. Implore
their aid! Be courageous soldiers of Christ! At the return of light,
let everyone give thanks to the Holy Trinity for their protection!
The devastation shall be very
But I, your God, will
have purified the earth. I am with you, have confidence!
Again and again I have warned men, and often have I given them special
opportunities to return to the right path; but now, wickedness has
reached its climax, and the punishment can no longer be delayed. Even
though My Heart does suffer and bleed, yet for My Name's sake, I must
deal this blow. Tell all that the time has come in which these things
shall be fulfilled.
THIS IS THE OTHER SIDE OF CHRIST one seldom hears about these days. He
is formidable if one is His enemy. But we who love Him have nothing to
fear! He will protect His own!
As for the time read: Math. 24: 43-44.
God will NOT be mocked forever!

Giant meteor sails
over Saguaro Lake

The Arizona Republic
Oct. 2, 2006 10:48 AM
Residents who saw a ball of fire in the sky late Sunday
evening near Saguaro Lake witnessed a giant meteor, officials
Phoenix and Scottsdale police and Rural/Metro Fire Department
dispatchers received calls from residents reporting a plane
going down in "a ball of fire." Another caller reported seeing
"It was a large ball of flame," Rural/Metro Fire Department
spokeswoman Alison Cooper said. "It was very large. It was
seen as far as Washington state."
Kip and Valerie Wachter saw the fireball pass over their heads
about 10:15 Sunday evening as they walked north of Pinetop.
"The colors were a bright green, red, white. The size was
about three times wider than its length. It seemed to emanate
a low, soft swishing sound as it passed overhead," the
Wachters wrote in an e-mail to The Republic.
Steve Kates, a Chandler resident and science journalist known
as "Dr. Sky," said that description, particularly the noise,
was consistent with meteoric activity.
Most meteors visible on earth occur high in the atmosphere and
these "shooting stars" are about the size of a grain of dust,
said Jeffrey Hall, associate director at the Lowell
Observatory in Flagstaff.
"The great majority are these tiny particles moving through
the atmosphere at a high rate of speed," Hall said. "Larger
ones tend to be moving more slowly and produce a much larger
trail through the sky."
Between 10 and 50 meteor events occur over the Earth each day,
according to the American Meteor Society, with the vast
majority happening over oceans and out of eyesight. Meteors
lose mass and decelerate as they enter the atmosphere, with
only the largest slamming into the Earth and forming a crater.
Scientists think the Barringer Crater, near Winslow, was
formed by an iron meteor about 50,000 years ago.
Kates said a meteorite the size of a human fist could have
created the light show West Coast residents witnessed Sunday
Rural/Metro responded to the north side of Saguaro Lake but
found no sign of damage or destruction from a plane crash,
Cooper said. Witnesses reported seeing the meteor travel from
southwest to northeast.
Hall said the meteor likely never made it to the ground.
"This is not like a mountain
coming into the atmosphere. It's more like the size of a
softball," Hall said. "Even something this bright probably
burned up completely in the atmosphere."
