Mysterious space junk is hurtling towards Earth (and scientists are super excited)



By Rachel Feltman October 26 at 11:01 AM  


Incoming. (NASA/NOAA)

Some space garbage is headed straight for us -- but chances are pretty good that no one on Earth will even notice its impact. That is, except for the scientists who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the cosmic rubbish.

[An unexpected asteroid (or maybe comet) will fly surprisingly close to Earth on Halloween]

Nature News reports that the object, officially known as WT1190F, will arrive on Nov. 13. It's about  3 to 6 feet long, and probably hollow, which means it's almost definitely man-made. Don't fret: It's coming down over the Indian Ocean, about 65 miles off the southern tip of Sri Lanka. So even if any significant fragments remain after the object passes through the atmosphere, they're unlikely to hurt anyone. Let's just hope they don't ruin a whale's day.

WT1190F -- which is probably a piece of discarded rocket body -- was a "lost" piece of space debris, meaning that it wasn't on anyone's radar until it was spotted falling toward Earth.  It's unusual for scientists to be able to accurately predict the incoming path of such debris because not much effort goes into following the garbage we've left in space. So people are excited to study it as it comes down.

The piece of junk could actually be a really cool historical artifact. It could even be part of one of the rockets used in the Apollo program. If we're lucky, we might get to find out what spacecraft it came from. But I guess we should just be grateful for the fact that space junk hardly ever makes it down to Earth, and that this particular piece of litter is unlikely to harm anyone

Interesting catch.

According to Revelations the 'beginning of the End' will be marked by a meteor/comet.

Ice cores confirm colossal solar storms


Evidence that Earth was hit by two solar storms – 10 times larger than those observed recently – 1,000 years ago. If they occurred today, they’d have devastating effects on power supplies, satellites and communications.

This week – October 26, 2014 – scientists in Sweden published a study in the journal Nature Communications suggesting that solar storms – streams of charged particles from the sun – could be much more powerful than previously assumed. Researchers at Lund University say they’ve now confirmed that Earth was hit by two extreme solar storms more than 1,000 years ago. These storms were at least 10 times larger than those observed in recent decades. The evidence for these storms is trapped in ice in Greenland and Antarctica.
Many skywatchers at high latitudes look forward to solar storms, because the particles they release may interact with Earth’s magnetic field, resulting in spectacular displays of auroras, or northern and southern lights. However, while solar storms aren’t harmful to us on Earth’s surface – because our atmosphere protects us – they do pose a risk to our earthly technologies.
In extreme cases, solar storms have caused major power outages, such as the one in October 2003 in Sweden and in March 1989 in Canada. They could also lead to breakdowns of satellites and communication systems. Raimund Muscheler of Lund University, speaking of the two enormous solar storms discovered by his research group, said in an October 26 statement:
Quote :
If such enormous solar storms would hit Earth today, they could have devastating effects on our power supply, satellites and communication systems.

An X-flare via NASA SDO. Such flares often result in ‘coronal mass ejections’ or CMEs that hurl solar particles toward Earth.
What did this new study say? Researchers at Lund, together with colleagues in Switzerland, Denmark and the U.S., have been looking for traces of solar storms in the form of low levels of radioactive carbon, in ice cores from Greenland and Antarctica. Their statement explained:
Quote :
Everywhere on Earth you can find traces of cosmic rays from the galaxy and the sun, such as low levels of radioactive carbon.
A few years ago researchers found traces of a rapid increase of radioactive carbon in tree rings from the periods AD 774/775 and AD 993/994. The cause for these increases was, however, debated.
… In this study, we have aimed to work systematically to find the cause for these events. We have now found corresponding increases for exactly the same periods in ice cores. With these new results it is possible to rule out all other suggested explanations, and thereby confirm extreme solar storms as the cause of these mysterious radiocarbon increases.

These scientists say their study also provides:
Quote :
… the first reliable assessment of the particle fluxes connected to these events.

They say that’s important for the future planning of reliable electronic systems. Raimund Muscheler said:
Quote :
These solar storms by far exceeded any known events observed by instrumental measurements on Earth. The findings should lead to a reassessment of the risks associated with solar storms.

What are solar storms, and how do they affect us? Gigantic eruptions on the sun causecoronal mass ejections, or CMEs, the emission of huge quantities of charged particles into space. The particles have to be aimed toward Earth to strike us, but, if Earth happens to be in the path of a CME, the charged particles can slam into our atmosphere, causing a geomagnetic storm.
Such storms disrupt satellites in orbit and even cause them to fail, and bathe high-flying airplanes with radiation. They can disrupt telecommunications and navigation systems. They have the potential to affect power grids, and have been known to black out entire cities, even entire regions.
People talking about power failures from solar storms always point back to March 13, 1989 – 23 years ago. A CME caused a power failure in Québec, as well as across parts of the northeastern U.S. In this event, the electrical supply was cut off to over 6 million people for 9 hours.
The largest known solar storm took place on August 28, 1859. It was observed and recorded by Richard C. Carrington, and so it’s sometimes called the Carrington Event, or sometimes the 1859 Solar Superstorm. The accompanying coronal mass ejection (CME) traveled to Earth in only 17 hours, rather than the usual three or four days. The largest recorded geomagnetic storm occurred. Aurorae, or northern lights, were seen in many parts of the world. Telegraph systems throughout Europe and North America failed.

What would happen if such a powerful solar storm took place today?
We don’t know exactly, but scientists are asking more questions are solar storms and their consequences. For example, in 2012, scientists publishing in the journal Space Weathersuggested that a 2001 power failure in New Zealand was caused by a solar storm. That result, if true, is particularly important because New Zealand is not at a high latitude (as Québec is, for example). It’s at a middle latitude, the same latitude as much of the United States. This 2012 study suggested that solar storm effects can reach into the more populous middle latitudes.
Scientists – for example at the Space Weather Prediction Center – continually monitor the sun, both from space and from Earth’s surface. When a solar storm with the potential to affect Earth takes place, they see it. After all, in order to affect us on Earth, the solar storm would have to happen on the side of the sun facing Earth.
After such an event, it usually takes several days for the coronal mass ejection, or CME, to reach Earth. When a big CME is on its way, it is possible for satellites to shut their systems off briefly, and thereby remain safe. Likewise, with advance warning, Earth-based power grids can be reconfigured to provide extra grounding. And so on.
Is such a powerful solar storm likely to occur again in our lifetimes? No one can answer that question. But scientists have become increasingly aware of the possibility, especially since 2008, when Sten Odenwald and James Green published an article in the magazine Scientific American about the Carrington Event and possible consequences if such a powerful storm on the sun occurred today.
Are we in danger from a particularly huge solar power, perhaps on a scale of the Carrington Event … or larger? Some believe we may be. That is why governments and scientists are beginning to pay more attention to this issue, with an eye to creating systems and procedures to help withstand such powerful effects from the sun.
The recent study from Sweden should add to the ongoing discussions among governments and scientists on the subject of powerful solar storms affecting Earth.

Bottom line: Researchers at University of Lund in Sweden have confirmed that Earth was hit by two extreme solar storms 1,000 years ago. These storms were at least 10 times larger than those observed in recent decades. Such enormous solar storms could have devastating effects on our power supply, satellites and communication systems. The evidence for these storms is trapped in ice in Greenland and Antarctica.

Are they preparing our minds for the use of EMP bombs to disrupt our society into chaos ?

WT1190F Safely Reenters Earth's Atmosphere

Just after 1:18 AM EST (6:18 AM UTC) on Friday, Nov. 13 an object tagged as WT1190F reentered Earth's atmosphere as predicted above the Indian Ocean, just off the southern tip of Sri Lanka.
The object - most likely man-made space debris from some previous lunar or interplanetary mission burned up on reentry and was not a threat to anyone on Earth due to its low density and small size (3-6 feet or 1-2 meters).
The object was detected while still on a large elongated orbit about the Earth on Oct. 3 by the Catalina Sky Survey (CSS), one of the NASA-funded asteroid search projects operated by the University of Arizona and located near Tucson. The U.S. Air Force Space Command had primary responsibility for tracking it, though NASA was also interested in tracking this object because its final trajectory was entering Earth's atmosphere at an angle more like an asteroid from interplanetary space than of a typical piece of space debris.
This event was therefore good to practice some of the procedures that NASA's Near-Earth Object Observations Program would follow if a small asteroid were on a collision course with Earth. Those procedures include detecting and tracking of the object, characterizing its physical parameters, calculating its trajectory with high precision modeling, and delivering accurate predictions to scientists who would like to observe the entry through Earth's atmosphere.

The Eagles of Green Metal?


Bataclan attack

Main article: November 2015 Paris attacks
On November 13, 2015, the band was playing a sold-out concert at the Bataclan theatre in Paris, France, when an armed attack on the theater occurred in which a number of people were killed and wounded. According to reports, the attackers shot randomly into the crowd. Later, as the police were storming the building, they also threw explosives into the crowd. At least two attackers were killed by the police, but approximately 100 civilians were killed.[18] Jesse Hughes escaped via the backstage.[19]

Unknown 'space object' illuminates the sky over Chita, Russia - 2nd and 3rd 'UFO' ball and WT1190F


A huge fireball has been spotted in the skies over the Russian city of Chita near the border with China. An unidentified flying object, most probably a meteorite, made three extra bright flashes before burning out, according to eyewitness accounts.


Witnesses described the incident as an unusually bright flash that illuminated the skies just after midnight on November 12. The falling object left long tail of light behind it.

“It resembled a fall of some kind of a space object,” Zvezda TV channel said, citing an unnamed witness. The phenomenon was also allegedly clearly visible from neighboring cities.

The Russian military said that no drills were conducted in the region last night reported RT.

   

The fireball comes several days after a second mysterious black 'UFO' ball has been crashed into a spanish field.

For the second time in just five days, on November 8, 2015, a mystery cylindrical object weighing about 20 kilos has fallen into fields in Calasparra, an area of Murcia with 9,700 inhabitants just a stone's throw from the site where the first black 'UFO'ball has been found on November 3, 2015.

Once again the Civil Gaurd was called in, the area sealed off until investogators could initiate the protocol known as "NRBC (nuclear, radiological, bacteriological and chemical)" to avoid any potential dangers.
It is worthy to mention that also on November 3, 2015 a similar mysterious 'UFO ball" object has been crashed on the beach of Karusa, one of the Black Sea coastal town's of Sakarya in Turkeye.

Today, Friday 13th another unidentified space object (WT1190F) is about to crash off the coast of Sri Lanka. Scri Lanka has issued a NO FLY warning and the impact is expected at 11.49 am Sri Lanka time.

Where are these objects coming from and can we expect more unidentified objects falling from the sky?

Mystery object dazzles in the sky over Siberia

By The Siberian Times reporter
13 November 2015
A meteor? A rocket? A military missile? An UFO? So far no explanation for the lightshow over Trans-Baikal.

There were three flashes, leading some to believe they were seeing a rocket and others to say it was a meteor exploding as it flew through the atmosphere. Picture: Youtube

It began with a bright flash around 10pm on 11 November and was seen over a wide area of this region. One eyewitness spoke of a 'large luminous ball' which 'dragged a plume of bright green light'.

There were three flashes, leading some to believe they were seeing a rocket and others to say it was a meteor exploding as it flew through the atmosphere. Some accounts say it fell to earth. The spectacular sight was caught on a short video. 










'A large luminous ball dragged a plume of bright green light.' Pictures: Youtube
An eyewitness in the village of Olovyannaya, 200 km south east of the city of Chita, said: 'At first we thought it was a military exercise, but we did not hear the characteristic rumble. Normally, we hear the training very well in the village. Maybe it was a meteor.'
Another, Andrey Chepkasov, said: 'I went to the gas station, and suddenly right before my eyes there was this bright flash. I was even a little blinded. I almost lost control. A large luminous ball dragged a plume of bright green light.'
The Russian military firmly denied any involvement. Ilya Metelkin, spokesman for the 29th Army HQ, said: 'I can say definitely that the celestial object has no relation to military actions on the territory of Trans-Baikal region. More likely - it is a natural phenomenon.' 




Eyewitnesses in at least three loclities told they saw the glowing ball. Pictures: The Siberian Times
An officer in the military unit of Olovyannikovsky district said: 'I can say with confidence that this was not because of the military. Currently, there are no exercises in our area.' 
Claims the UFO landed on a house causing it to go up in flames were denied. Associate geography professor Valeriy Kulakov concluded the phenomenon was 'something to do with the military'.

There was a similar thing a few years ago, but the shock wave took out windows.   Intercontinental test missile fired from an Arctic based sub might take this path.
