The planet was all abuzz (or ablaze) last week with a rash of meteor activity bombarding our atmosphere, producing ear shattering booms that blew out windows and injured hundreds in the Ural mountains of Russia, and unleashing glorious pyrotechnics in the skies around the world over the course of a couple of days.
This destructive Russian meteor activity occurred the same day that asteroid DA-14 — which Earthling astronomers had been tracking for several months —passed by our planet at a distance of 17,000 miles or so, which I believe is the closest asteroid flyby in recorded astronomical history.
Nonetheless, mainstream science — and their corporate media lapdogs — were quick to poo-poo any correlation between DA-14 and this Russia meteor madness. Or, for that matter, the slew of subsequent meteor reports that occurred in DA-14’s aftermath, which got a lot of people freakin’ out that the End Times were nigh at hand, for we all know that the Bible foretold when the shit comes down you’ll have all kinds of craziness raining down from the sky and loud booming noises like the trumpets of angels blowing bad news for humankind. Or something like that.
Some of the early reports concerning the Russian meteor claimed it had been intercepted by a Russkie missile which, if this did happen, says a lot about the current state of Star Wars type technology residing in the hands of world powers. If, indeed, good old hammer and sickle technology blasted that bad boy from the sky, this seems at least a bit reassuring that such technology does exist and can be used in such a timely manner, within 15 minutes or thereabouts of first being sighted, according to some reports I heard.
The day after DA-14’s historic passing and unassociated (or associated, as the case may be) Russian meteor activity, another rash of sightings were reported throughout the US and South America. In fact, your humble reporter was fortunate enough to witness what I believe was the San Francisco-Bay Area meteor (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/

What I find significant about this sighting (at least from a personal perspective) is that if I’d paused but for a mere nanosecond more before leaving my brother’s house and going out to my car, I would’ve never seen this magnificent meteor plunging to Earth, which suggests that I was meant to see it, for whatever reasons, and that there is deep meaning in our lives in relation to the churning of cosmos.
