Earth Is Moving Toward Same Meteor Swarm Scientists Believe Caused The Tunguska Explosion Of 1908

Over the next several weeks, our planet will have a close encounter with the Taurid meteor swarm. It will be the closest that we have been to the center of the meteor swarm since 1975, and we won’t have an encounter this close again until 2032. So for astronomers, this is a really big deal. And hopefully there will be no danger to Earth during this pass, but some scientists are absolutely convinced that the Tunguska explosion of 1908 which flattened 80 million trees in Russia was caused by an object from the Taurid meteor swarm.

As you will see below, the last week of June will mark the point when we are the closest to the center of the meteor swarm, and so that will be when the risk is the greatest. According to CBS News, our planet “will approach within 30,000,000 km of the center of the Taurid swarm” by the end of this month…

30 million kilometers may sound like a great distance, but in astronomical terms that is not very far at all, and it is important to remember that distance is measured from the exact center of the meteor swarm.

I hope a small but expensive meteor lands in my backyard.

”I hope a small but expensive meteor lands in my backyard.”

And that a large cheap one flattens San Francisco.

AOC said the end is in 2031, so this metor thingy is consistent with her story.

So the meteoroids are in danger of being struck by an Earth. You think we have problems?

Sounds good. I was going to suggest that.

If we could also get some big ones to hit LA, NY City, Miami, and Chicago we would be much closer to the MAGA dream.

Depends on one's perspective. The whole solar system is moving at an incredible pace.

I believe it’s suspected that that object was a comet, not meteor or asteroid.

I read somewhere that if the Tunguska object had hit the earth three hours later it would have hit St. Petersburg rather than a bit of uninhabited wilderness in Siberia. I don’t know if that is exactly true (that is, whether it would have hit St. Petersburg exactly or just somewhere close to it), but that could have changed a lot of world history. No WWI? No Bolshevik Revolution? No statue in Seattle of Lenin?

No, according to Dr. Raymond Stantz, professor of ghostbusting, Tunguksa was a interdimensional crossrip. Lets hope he's right. Crossing the streams won't stop meteors.
