New Asteroid Discovered by Amateur
An amateur researcher, using Google Sky, has apparently discovered an asteroid prior to NASAor other astronomers and scientists. Here is the video link to his YouTube site documenting the discovery. Based on his calculations, the asteroid is headed in the direction of Earth. Up to this point, his discovery has not been proven to be untrue.
Huge Triangular Object Inside Sun
March 13, 2012
Huge Unidentified Object Next to Sun
An almost inconceivably large unidentifed object was filmed on March 11, 2012 next to the Sun, adjoined with a long plasmic tether to our closest star, just days after a huge X 5.4 Solar flare. This story broke on Before It's News by YouTube site
Sunsflare. Click on the image above to see his analysis.
Below is a closeup of that object.
The same reporter uploaded a follow-up video to this amazing event, where the spherical UFO object the size of a planet appears to withdraw the plasmic tendrails, detaching itself from the Sun, which is followed by a coronal mass ejection.
NASA's explanation, provided by Alex Young of their Goddard Center, tries to convince those interested that this is a normal type of solar phenomena. Young claims that the spherical object and filament erupt, but in the follow-up video above, only the sun surface erupts in a coronal mass ejection (CME), not the spherical object nor the connecting filament.Young tries to convinve the viewer that a spherical object like this is "quite common," and is a "coronal cavity," but none of his examples even come close to matching what is represented in Sunsflare's videos. NASA's examples are faint at best, and in my view, unconvincing. This clearly defined spherical object is not a coronal cavity.

What follows in this capsule report is highly speculative in nature, and comes from an alleged contactee with a being from Andromeda, and was posted four days earlier than this incident on March 7th in their 75th posting of information since 2010. From that text: "Friends, the sun is under direct influence of the system Nibiru and Pleiadians planet that orbits the sun in orbits slightly larger than Mercury. The Krulians [who, according to this ET source, are a highly advanced benevolent ET race, aligned with the Andromedans and Pleiadians] were discharged the function of relieving stress from the sun and let nature take its course, its mothership is orbiting close to the sun, waiting for instructions. Everything done so far has been to avoid the anticipation of the governments of mass culling of populations." For complete transcripts of all 75 postings by this contactee, visit this link.
In conclusion, this solar event is not typical or normal in any way as NASA would have us believe, but what exactly is occurring may even be beyond the understanding of our most advanced sciences.
Important Solar Disturbance Updates
March 8, 2012
Active sunspot AR1429 continues to grow. It is now more than seven times wider than Earth. Observations have noted that the region remains vast and magnetically complex. Forecasts from the NOAA: "The geomagnetic field is expected to be active initially on day 1 (08 March) but is expected to increase to major storm levels with a likelihood for isolated severe storm levels after the arrival of the CME from today's X5/full halo event. The arrival time is estimated to be sometime between 0600-1000Z. Minor to major storm levels are expected to continue partway (6-12 hours) into the second day (09 March), but a decline to predominantly active levels is expected for the remainder of the day. Predominantly unsettled levels are expected for the third day (10 March)."

March 7, 2012
A tremendous size solar flare occurred on March 7, from Sunspot 1429, rating an X5.4., temporarily blinding a probe orbiting Venus.
November 15, 2011
A 1,000,000 kilometer long solar filament of magnetism, one of
the longest such filaments on record, had a small eruption that
catapulted a plasma cloud into space. The greater concern is that this tremendous filament could collapse and fall onto the surface of the Sun, creating a Hyder flare that could head in Earth's direction.

Another plasma wall may also erupt on another area of the Sun.
October 24, 2011
On October 24th, a large CME impacted Earth's magnetic field,
and exposed satellites to solar winds, while additionally sparking geomagnetic storms that appeared as red skies all over Canada
and the U.S, shortly after the 7.6 earthquake in Turkey.
This may once again suggest a link between solar flares and
seismic activity, as the solar flares are visible in the Earth's skies shortly after the original coronal mass ejections, but may have
already excited the molten interior parts of the Earth, before we
see evidence of the CMEs in our skies.

The Sun is in a Period of Very High
Intensity CME Activity
A newly discovered comet plunged on September 30, 2011
into the Sun, followed immediately by a massive solar
explosion. SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) was
able to record the hours leading up to the comet's
disintegration. This followed the 24 hour period of
Sept 18-19 when six CMEs (coronal mass ejections) were
unleashed by the Sun, and one prevailing theory but
naysayed by NASA suggests a link between this activity
and Comet Elenin [see Systems in Conflict.] If you are
noticing any differences in the brightness or intensity of
the sun, this may have something to do with that sensitivity
you are experiencing, as well as the depletion of the ozone
layer accelerating. Solar scientists are at a loss to explain
how a comet could trigger such a massive explosion like
another comet did in interacting with the Sun on July 5,
2011. The evidence suggests that comets can cause
magnetic instability that triggers CMEs, commonly
known as solar flares. [Click on Solar Flares for additional information.]

6.7 Earthquake in New Guinea, Papau New Guinea
A major earthquake has hit New Guinea again, following yesterday's 5.7, and the 6.4 from March 14th. Also, earthquake reporter Dutch Sinse is reporting that Google has suspended his account as of today, and Terral Croft is reporting that six members of his reporting team are "under attack." The timing of all of this, just after Croft's press release from Sunday the 18th predicting these events, seems very suspicious. Both earthquake reporters have tied the U.S. government HAARP Project to earthquakes.
Especially disturbing is the emergency drill that was staged in the state of Chiapas, Mexico for an earthquake of magnitude 7.9, when the 7.8 earthquake struck in the nearby state of Guerrero only two minutes difference from the simulation drill. Add to this strange confluence of events that Obama's daughter was visiting in the area of the earthquake.

Earthquake prediction related to CW Leonis
A small group of non-professional earthquake analysts out of St. Petersbug, Florida have offered a press release on March 18th, and are expecting a major earthquake to occur by Thursday, March 22, 2012.
Here is the statement by Terral Croft:
MARCH 22, 2012 EARTH AXIS WILL SHIFT FIVE INCHES WITH a NINE MAGNITUDE QUAKE EXPECTED in a PACIFIC OCEAN EVENT, WHEN EARTH PASSES THROUGH A GRAVITY TROUGH CONNECTING THE SUN AND an INBOUND HEAVY-MASS OBJECT
St. Petersburg, Florida – Our researchers have discovered a pattern of seismicity going back to 1965 that has transitioned into large magnitude events including Earth axis shifts on a regular 188-day cycle. The most-recent events include the February 27, 2010 8.8 event in Chile, the September 4, 2010 7.1 event at Christchurch, New Zealand, the September 15, 2011 7.3 event in Fiji and the March 11, 2011 9.0 Japan event. The next timeline event is expected to take place according to our calculations on March 22, 2012 at 4:58:34 UTC, when Earth will pass through the gravity trough connecting the Sun and a heavy-mass object (HMO) being tracked out of the Leo Constellation. The Earth axis is expected to shift five to six inches like the four-inch shift with Japan event and the three-inch shift with the Chile event.
Saturn is currently in the Virgo Constellation next door to the Leo Constellation where the ringed planet also passed between the Sun and this HMO to develop an extra ring and the super storm now raging in the northern hemisphere. The evidence indicates that Jupiter’s liquefying core, Venus’ slowing rotation with Mars’ and Uranus’ increased seismicity are all perturbations associated with our inbound HMO. The last time Saturn experienced this storm type was thirty years ago, when the planet passed between the Sun and Leo Constellation. Our team is also tracking the U.S. Government response to these threats, which includes Presidential, NASA, DHS and FEMA Preparations.
Our research team anticipates that HAARP multi-frequency wave signatures will begin transmitting on March 19, 2012 at 4:58:34 UTC precisely seventy two hours prior to the expected event. The team also expects to see increased four to six magnitude quake swarm activity at the ‘event’ location. Everyone living in or around a seismic area should be warned to brace for one of the top five seismic events in recorded history on March 22, 2012 right around the equinox."

Hypothesis of Cause (video): Jupiter-Aligning Earthquakes and Solar Flares See Also Hypothesis of additional Cause: Earthquake-producing nuclear detonations to gain advantage in geo-political control, espoused by Benjamin Fulford, or HAARP

What I have found odd is that the earthquakes have been quiet
for most of the last 24 hours on the Asian side of the Ring of Fire,
and along the western South American coast,
but instead concentrated and repeated tremors are occurring
along the Mediterranean faults in Turkey and Greece
Updated November 15, 2011
Commentary: October 16, 2011 by Rick Keefe NEW
Since following earthquake data, I have noticed a trend by the USGS (United States
Geological Survey) that indicates a pattern of their office downgrading earthquake magnitudes, after the "event has been reviewed by a seismologist."
Here are four recent examples:
*The Russia quake of October 14 2011 was downgraded from a published 6.6 to 6.1
*The Oregon quake of October 12, 2011 was downgraded from 5.9 to 5.3.
*The Vancouver quake of September 9, 2011 was downgraded from a 6.7 to a 6.4.
*The Alaska quake of September 2, 2011 was downgraded from a 7.1 to a 6.8.
There have been numerous others that I have seen downgraded from 0.1 to 0.3 magnitudes,
and I have not seen a single event that was upgraded in magnitude. I have found this
reporting very unscientific, unsettling, highly irresponsible, and even criminal.
Today, I discovered this article: Why the Lake Mead earthquakes Should Give You
Nightmares and am appalled to find that the USGS is deleting earthquakes from its
database, and under-reporting at best. This is a large signal that those higher in authority
are purposely mis-informing the public about the growing scale of seismic disturbances.
Update November 15, 2011: Here is another example of earthquake data manipulation through USGS data sources, caught live by an observer on November 5, 2011 as the Oklahoma Earthquakes were occurring.
Commentary: October 6, 2011 by Rick Keefe
Already since October 5th, there has been a climb in the magnitude of earthquakes back
into the 5+ and 6+ range, and numerous volcanoes including the Canary Islands El Hierro, Iceland's Katla Volcano, Indonesisa's Anak Krakatau Volcano, Costa Rica's Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, and Italy's Mount Etna Volcano are showing intense increased seismic activity and reactivation from dormancy. If Comet Elenin, or any larger object associated with its path, is actually affecting the geo-magnetics on Earth and between the Earth and
the Sun and thus affecting solar flares, eathquakes and volcanoes, then using the JPL and NASA Elenin Tracking Model, it appears that the period between October 15th and 19th,
2011 has the potential to be more dangerous in terms of large-scale events. And if HAARP
is a contributing factor or amplifier in any way, then we must put forth as much positive and gentle energy as possible, so that all dangerous effects are diminshed to whatever degree that our positive and healing energy can effect such events.

Although not limited to the cases to be listed below, what follows are a list of reports gathered last week as I trolled through the world news articles, and began to suspect a trend and then started a deeper search which led to these discoveries tucked away on the deep, back pages of the internet news engines:
--March 26th 12:35am (5.8 earthquake) Northern Peru (along the western border of the Nazca Plate) resulting in Mudslides April 16th in Chamanachucho and Aricapampa burying 25 homes
--throughout April, Mt. Redoubt Volcano in Alaska active, since March 22 (western border of the North American Plate)
-- April 7th 9:13am (4.7earthquake) Guatemala (on a western border of the Cocos Plate)
--April 7th 12:12pm (4.6 earthquake) Anchorage, Alaska (western border of the North American Plate)
--April 11th 4:22am (4.8 earthquake) Michoacan state, Mexico (on the northern
boundary of the Cococs Plate)
--April 14th 4:37am ( major earthquake, 3.9 aftershock) Yunnan Province, China (on the western edge of the Euroasian Plate) 16,000 people injured
--April 15th 4:23pm (5.0 earthquake) Amani-oshima Island, Japan (on the northwestern border of the Pacific Plate)
-- April 15th 3:01am (6.5 earthquake) North Sulaesi, West Papua and West Sumatra, Indonesia ( Indonesia pop. 230 million people plus animals) (along the top boundary of the Australian Plate)
-- April 15th 2:00 am (4.4 earthquakes) Central Mindanao, Philippines (along the southern border of the Phillippine Plate)
-- April 15th 8:45am (3.9 or less earthquake) Sri Lanka (just beyond the northwest
corner of the Australian Plate)
--April 16th, La Cumbre Volcano lava flow, Fernandina of the Galapagos Islands off Ecuador (on the western border of the Nazca Plate) killing rare wildlife
--April 16th 10:08pm (6.3 earthquake) Pacific Ocean 80km northwest of Iquique, Chile (on the western border of the Nazca Plate)
Considering the Central Italy 6.3 earthquake on April 6th that has left
394 people dead and 50,000 injured or homeless
and the Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan 5.5 & 5.1 earthquakes on April 16th that
left over 40 people dead and hundreds of homes destroyed, it is obvious that the Earth is in the midst of a period of high seismological upheaval.
On all sides of the "Ring of Fire," citizens and scientists should be both concerned and ramping up preparations for the contingency of having to deal with a devastating earthquake.
Here in the United States, Hawaii, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California need to take these series of seismological incidents very seriously, and our federal government needs to be prepared to help the states now for major earthquake preparedness. Risk management experts suggest that a 7.0 earthquake in the San Francisco area "could kill 4,500, injure 50,000, leave hundreds of thousands homeless."
The Cascadia region of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia is along the edge of the Juan de Fuca Plate,
Juan De Fuca Plate
which pushes under North America. The last large earthquake in that region was in 1700 of a 9.0 magnitude, equivalent to 30,000 6.0 earthquakes.
Coastline cities around the Ring of Fire need to immediately step up preparedness efforts and public information efforts in order to minimize loss of life to humans and animals.
Non-scientific warnings are also being directed to UFOHypotheses, and include:
1) E-mail circulating Singapore warning of impending earthquake around July 22nd, the same day as a solar eclipse.
2) Native-American warnings to stay away from the coastlines, especially those areas with nuclear reactors which will poison the water should they be damaged or submerged due to earthquake or tsunami. This is of special concern for Japanese residents in the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa area where the world's largest nuclear power plant has just been re-activated after being shut down two years ago following a 6.8 earthquake on July 16, 2007.
3) News articles by KING News in Seattle and The Economist which suggest earthquake preparedness is crucial.
4) Psychic who warns of a seismic disaster to occur in San Francisco this summer with a track record of high accuracy for thirty years of predictions.
5) Contactee information warning of a high probability of danger from the Juan De Fuca Plate, that would devastate Oregon and Washington states.
6) Yellowstone tremors are ganging together and more frequent.
While there are no good solutions to such enormous dangers as these potentialities, if some of the people who live in the U.S. coastlines were to migrate and move toward the central states, two good effects could occur:
a) A potential smaller number of dead, injured and homeless due to an earthquake and/or tsunami.
b) Integration of coastline populations which are generally multi-racial and multi-cultural with the homogenous central United States population, which could bring a greater degree of integration to rural American areas, leading to improved social balance.
My feeling is that we might as well look for the positive benefits of foresight, preparedness, and sensible action while we can act before such catastrophes.
