The meteor explosion over Russia that injured more than 500 people and damaged hundreds of buildings was not caused by an asteroid zooming close by the Earth today (Feb.15), a NASA scientist says.

No.... it was caused by one HITTING the Earth today.

There's a small, but important, distinction.

Knowing NASA as we do today, the official agency response would be “Inshallah”..

There were a bunch of amazing videos of this on line last night. Russians have a habit of keeping dash cams running continuously.

Russian astronomers have concluded the same. This one came from a different direction than Asteroid 2012 DA14.

Russian scientists estimate the object exploded at about 30,000 to 70,000 feet up, with an explosive yield ranging from 1 to 10 kilotons. Not quite as spectacular as the Tunguska Event, which is estimated by astronomers to have produced a 15 megaton explosion, but this was a much smaller object.

James Hanson will blame it on carbon bigfoot and/or ancient aliens.

Maybe the Mayans were 2-months off? Just a fraction of a percent over 4000 years.

I’m pretty sure this has something to do with climate change. Perhaps Hank Johnson or Sheila Jackson Lee could explain the connection?

Was it caused by the Pope’s intent to resign or was the foreknowledge of these events too much for him not to resign?

This was also a flyby but the earth and the small asteroid just happened to end up in the same place at the same time. LOL

Everyone, I present to you the rollup of the cause of the explosion over Russia this morning!

In 1908, an alien craft exploded at Tunguska, Russia;

The Roswell alien craft was a rescue mission for the Tunguska crash, but it in turn crashed in the New Mexico desert;

A piece of alien technology was discovered by the teenage Elvis Presley;

Presley turned it over the the Nazi scientists of Operation Paperclip;

The Nazi scientists reverse-engineered it and developed chemtrail technology, which in turn powers the HAARP array;

The HAARP array brought down the meteor at the request of George W. Bush, who remotely detonated it from his secret Skull and Bones lair beneath the campus of UT-Austin.

There, it all makes sense, The Truth Is Out There!

Well it wouldn’t be the first time a Goa’uld mothership exploded in our atmosphere. Ive seen it happen on Stargate a few times myself.

You forgot about Harry Whittington, who was threatening to go public with all of this, and had to be “reminded” by Dick Cheney to keep quiet. Oh, you thought that was just a hunting accident, eh?

I spent a while last night watching shows on comets and meteors and disaster scenarios if one struck LA or San Fran.

Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined waking up to headlines about a meteor strike. It was kinda freaky.

People in a police state do things like this, it is a a good idea to document EVERYTHING....

We continue to chase the whole "global warming is going to kill us" as a society we should really be looking out for falling rocks..

This should be the justification for NASA and Colonization of the solar system...

Because statisically it is one of the few civilisation ending disasters we CAN do somethign about and by doing something about it we cement our place in the cosmos for the next million years or MORE!!!

What if that had happened during the Cold War and the Soviets believed that was one of our nukes?

Be thankful that the Cold War is over for we have a president who just might do what the Hollywood-commie-loving pukes did in the movie "Fail Safe".

To placate their commie heroes the Hollywood crowd had the President of the United States order an immediate nuclear strike on New York City. (At the time I think NYC had a Republican mayor and Obama probably would pick a Republican state to nuke.)
