...The icy visitor from the outer solar system appeared with no warning on April 9th and plunged into the sun during the early hours of April 10th. One comet went in, none came out....

Toooo bad we can't plunge the cold hearted Pharaoh BamBamKennedy's 'deathcare' system, and the liberal US tax code in a like manner. Someday......

Went to the linked article - and found another interesting writeup about the Space Shuttle's "trail" of light that appeared after it was launched on April 5.

Maybe you already posted about this.

If not, that is very interestig also. Here's a picture from that article:

From that article about the space shuttle "cloud":

SHUTTLE CLOUD: On April 5th, space shuttle Discovery blasted off from Cape Canaveral at the crack of dawn. The shuttle began its journey in darkness--the sun was still below the horizon--but moments after it left the pad, Discovery burst into high altitude sunlight and proceeded to put on an extraordinary show. University of Florida astronomy professor Howard Cohen describes what he saw from his home in Gainesville, more than 130 miles from the Cape:

"The launch began in typical fashion- a brilliant, yellowish glow rising out of the southwest gradually morphing into a white contrail. Impatient observes might have thought that was it. But then an amazing contrail, the likes of which I have never seen before, rapidly appeared around and following the shuttle's path. For a short time it resembled a comet streaking across the dawn sky." He took this picture using his Canon EOS 5D:

The most powerful geomagnetic storm since December 2006 struck the Earth on Monday, a day earlier than expected.

On 3 April, the SOHO spacecraft spotted a cloud of charged particles called a coronal mass ejection (CME) shooting from the sun at 500 kilometres per second. This velocity suggested the front would reach Earth in roughly three days.

“It hit earlier and harder than forecast,” says Doug Biesecker of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado.

Fortunately, the storm was not intense enough to interfere strongly with power grids or satellite navigation, but it did trigger dazzling auroras in places like Iceland (pictured).

Such storms highlight the uncertainty in the arrival times of CMEs, which can easily be 15 hours off predictions, Biesecker says. Better modelling of the solar wind, which can accelerate CMEs en route to Earth, could reduce the uncertainty.

BUT ON APRIL 4th
Magnitude 7.2 - BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO
2010 April 04 22:40:42 UTC

Not sure if these CME’s have weakened the Magnetic Field to a point to cause all these earthquakes?

Solar Winds, Global daily earthquakes and a SUN on the blink of something.....

I think at this point, I would rather take advice from the Ancient Mayans than NASA and the USGS!

Well - the ancient Mayans had a glimpse of what it’s all about - but the Bible has the truth.

Read Matthew 24.

Read the book of Revelation.

I’ll try to come back and post some specific scriptures but one I am thinking about it this:

From Acts 2:16 where Peter Quotes from Joel Chapter 2 from the Old Testament:

16 .... this (Meaning the outpouring of the Holy Spirit which began on Pentecost -but is happening in our day in a bigger way) is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

17” ‘In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
18Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
19 I will show wonders in the heaven above
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21 And everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

Northern Lights could be interesting this week.

My wife and I were treated to a beautiful display of northern lights in the Pocatello, ID area after an X class eruption. Shimmering green "curtains" and very direct green rays (like sunlight through a hole in the clouds).

It has been awhile since I've seen any northern lights, with the sun in very low output of solar flares. It would be great to see some soon.

I once saw the Hebrew Letter "Shin" (The One that looks like a W) clearly marked in the sky in a cloud.


"Shin" is the first Letter in "Shaddai", one of the Oldest Names given to The Almighty in the Hebrew Scriptures, before Moses was given the Memorial Name.

It is also The Hand Shaped Blessing (Live Long and Prosper) That Leonard Nimoy used in Star Trek remembered from his Childhood in Temple Mishkin T'Fillah, and the Shape of a Fig leaf:


And Of Course, you know, the Fig Leaf is the Symbol for Israel.
JWish I had a camera THAT day.
