Interesting that the extreme cold of the Younger
Dryas occured in a year or less. Scary.
I think we occassionally get "grazed" by bodies with enough gravitational force that gets near enough to sort of LIFT things away ~ like maybe hunks of the atmosphere ~ they'd get hauled into Earth orbit and it'd take several hundred ~ maybe 1300 orbits to reacquire it.
Bodies of water might lift and move ~ maybe enough to cut a channel from the Mediterranean to the Black Sea.
They'd invent writing to record that event ~ but fur shur, whatever it was, it appeared to folks on the ground to be only slightly smaller than the Moon. (SEE: Inkydo vs. Gilgamesh, Sumer, 1st century ever).
