Is the Apocalypse Concealed in an Asteroid?

The Explosive Force of Frightening Proportions

Is the Apocalypse Concealed in an Asteroid?

A Dying Star Near, Earth Yearning to be Heard in the Silence of Space

This asteroid was classified by NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) as a Near-Earth Object. The asteroid was detected on October 9th.
It was 111 feet in diameter. It was traveling at 22,000 mph. We will meet it again on October 14, 2021. It was about 930,000 miles from Earth.
Asteroids orbit the Sun at different distances based on which they are classified as Apollo, Aten or Amor asteroids.
The massive Apophis 99942 asteroid is, by some such as Neil deGrasse Tyson, one that could cause a tsunami on the West Coast of the U.S. in 2029. It is 370 meters wide.
Another asteroid, Asteroid 2019 OK passed by Earth last week but it didn’t wake me up. You?
Some asteroids zoom by on a parallel to Earth and some cross paths. The ones that cross paths are Aten asteroids.
So what is all of this about asteroids?
Well, a MASSIVE 650 meter across droid will come by on November 21, 2019.
Whew, at least I will celebrate my birthday. Big 70 this year.
I must also mention the Yarkovsky Effect.
“This is when the soft force of sunlight can steer asteroids into Earth-crossing orbits and drastically alter the layout of their paths across the solar system.”
The impact of an asteroid hitting earth is depicted.

As much as I love writing about space I must call it a night — or morning.
I have to get to work on the other story.

You are reading an article in my publication “Finite Wisdom”. This is where you can find basic, beginner entry stories on space, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, etc.

Another publication is Centering Yourself. We look at ancient methods of Contemplation, Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina among others. Come join us. Or even better yet, consider writing for these publications.

Thanks for stopping.
