February 15, 2013 in Science


Updated Feb 15, 2013 (Please see the comments for further updates.):

On the morning of Feb 15, 2013, Russia experienced first hand what could happen if a bolide of sufficient size entered the Earth’s atmosphere and exploded over a populated area.  I thought it would be prudent to update this entry and remind everyone what this might mean.

The picture below is an artist’s impression of how Tunguska would have looked. Beautiful, but extremely deadly.  Just think, a whole bunch of those hit us back during the Younger Dryas (YD) Impact Event nearly 12,900 years ago, plus some that were much, much bigger than Tunguska.

In the linked article, the authors claim there is the possibility for a repeat performance as the hypothesized parent comet of the YD event swings back around for another go. Yes, it is periodic.  Maybe that’s why all the ancients built temples where you could track the movements of stars and stuff to let them know when the bombardment would come back.

We could be facing something much worse than a bunch of pathological elite bent on world domination in the not too distant future if the above is true.

Original Entry, July 06, 2012:

Article on SOTT.NET a must read!   One commenter says that from 2005 to 2012, fireball and/or bolide reports went from the normal average of 1.2 per day to 5.03 per day and is still climbing!   No wonder the military stopped giving out free meteor fireball reports from their nuke explosion detection satellites and classified all the data.

  1. As of March 9th, 2013, fireball events at the American Meteor Society web site are up to 8.1 events per day for 2013. Contrast that to 1.2 per day for 2005.

    • March 23, 2013 = 82 day of year. Current total bolide events at AMS as of this date = 699. 699/82 = 8.5 events per day. Still rising. Rut row!

      • May 23, 2013 = 143 day of year. Current total fireball/bolide events at AMS as of this date = 1128. 1128/143 = 7.9 events per day. It came down somewhat. Hopefully, that trend will continue.

      • June 11, 2013 = 162 day of year. Current total fireball/bolide events at AMS as of this date = 1251. 1251/162 = 7.72 events per day. Coming down slowly for the time being.. Again, let’s hope that trend can continue.

      • July 21, 2013 = 202 day of year. Current total fireball/bolide events at AMS as of this date = 1489. 1489/202 = 7.37 events per day.

  2. Update for Feb 16, 2013:

    The rising number of fireball meteor (bolide) reports over the last 8 years plus the running total for 2013 is below. For the entire year of 2012, the average per day is nearly 6.1 fireballs reported. Compare that to the 2005 average of nearly 1.3 events per day, which was the normal yearly rate quoted in a number of publications.

    Year Number of Events
    2005 463
    2006 517
    2007 587
    2008 726
    2009 694
    2010 951
    2011 1628
    2012 2219
    2013 322

    Based on the above, 2013 already looks like it will surpass 2012 for number of fireballs reported.

    That’s quite the picture there. Is it a visual depiction of the Tunguska Event?
