A 10-ton meteor exploded in the sky above Russia on Friday, causing a shockwave that blew out windows injuring some 400 people and sending fragments falling to the ground in the Ural Mountains.

I am noting the peoples’ reactions and the light/noise effects from the event.

One can imagine the panic should this happen over an American city.

PING of interest.

From what I’ve been reading, the bolide exploded at about 30,000 feet up.

It’s a damn good thing it exploded as high up as it did. The damage caused by the pressure wave was significant. I can only imagine how much worse it would’ve been if it had air-burst at 3,000 or 5,000 feet above Chelyabinsk - it would’ve been like a nuclear blast.

Still, over 950 injured (mostly minor) and structural damage to some 3,000 buildings. That’s nothing to sneeze at. It’s quite similar in many ways to the 1908 Tunguska Event.

Oh, well, they always told me the fall is no problem, it’s that sudden stop at the bottom that’s really hell.

In the late 60’S I saw a meteor in daylight. At first I thought it was a plane crash. It went from east to west, burned bright green and broke into at least three pieces. No sound. It was reported by several people across at least three states. Very impressive. K

REVELATION 8:11

The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.

Did it fall into the reservoir?

More likely related to 2012 DA14 than to Gorebull warming.

According to Russian scientists, they didn’t see this one coming, as it came from a different direction.

The cosmic equivalent of a sucker punch.

It should have happened directly over the U.S. Capitol building.

Do you think that might finally wake them up?

I gotta say I admire the Russian people.

If this had been here people would be going pure D ApeSpit. We would be inundated with news stories of hardship, injury, people suffering from the cold, calls for emergency aid drives, proclamations of disaster and calls for federal relief that come too slowly. You can bet your azz that Shiela Jackson Lee or somebody would proclaim some form of discrimination and the baby mommas and daddys would be out looking for someone to blame, sue or touch for money and free stuff.

The Russians? Wow! That was bad but it missed us and could have been a lot worse. We’ll fix the cuts and repair the damage. Bye now.

HaHa. Of course this happens during the third trumpet of God's wrath, which happens AFTER Jesus returns in the clouds to gather his elect (Rev 14:14). And no one will miss His return. "Behold he commeth with clouds, and EVERY EYE shall see him..." (Rev 1:7a).

AnAmericanAbroad said: "From what I’ve been reading, the bolide exploded at about 30,000 feet up."

I counted 27 seconds in one of the videos from the bright blast to the occurrence of the shockwave. At 1100 feet per second, that's roughly 29,700 feet.

Others have pointed out a good lesson here. If you witness a blindingly bright flash in the sky, you probably have about less than half a minute to take cover to avoid injury from the blast. One must avoid the temptation to stand at the windows to admire the view. For those with a strong sense of scientific curiousity, it's a challenge.

I’ve reconsidered the pre-tribulation theory. It is nowhere in the Bible. In fact, the only time pre-tribulation is mentioned is in the Scofield Bible commentary.

Unfortunately, we many not escape many of the events that are foretold in the last days.

Yes, but since it happened over there, wherever that "over there" is, you have people with instant Babble quotes, about Armageddon, God's Divine Judgment and similar nonsense.

It was tongue in cheek, I could tell. But so many Christians are deceived on this subject. I wanted to make sure any other reader would understand the correct sequencing.

Are you familiar with the new film “After the Tribulation”? It is an excellent documentary exposing the Pre-tribulation rapture false doctrine. It is viewable on Youtube. There is a blurb on it here:

http://www.faithfulwordbaptist.org/index.html

My pastor, Steven Anderson, has an excellent series on Revelation at the FWBC website. He convered all 22 chapters a few years ago. But preached them again recently because he’d learned so much since that time. He’s rerecorded 17 of the 22 chapters of Revelation and will complete the series in a few weeks.

Yep... Cover your head.

The videos were amazing to watch. I marvel at mother nature and what she can do to a hunk of ice, metal or rock.

I agree. Most sit in the pulpit and only digest what the pastor (who digested everything he learned from his instructor in seminary) People need to read the Bible for themselves.

The Bible is very clear once preconceived notions are taken out of the mix. It’s in the Book. That’s the way it will be. Yes and no, never maybe.

I’ll check out the site.
