Mars is about to get a visitor that comes around only once in a million years or so.

The arrival of a “mountain-sized” comet, Siding Spring (C/2013 A1), is made all the more extraordinary by the fact that humans — who were busy refining their stone-tool-making skills the last time such an event might have occurred — now have spacecraft from multiple countries at the Red Planet to see it happen.

“Think about a comet that started its travel probably at the dawn of man and it’s just coming in close now,” Carey Lisse, a senior astrophysicist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, said at a news briefing about Comet Siding Spring last week. “And the reason we can actually observe it is because we have built satellites and rovers. We’ve now got outposts around Mars.”

As the nucleus of the comet passes about 80,000 miles from the Martian surface The nucleus of the comet will make its closest approach to Mars at 1:32 p.m. ET on Sunday, orbiters from NASAEurope and India are all being repurposed to quickly observe the comet flyby and then beat a retreat before the comet’s tail swings by.

As The Associated Press writes: “The orbiting craft will observe the incoming iceball, then hide behind Mars for protection from potentially dangerous debris in the comet tail. NASA’s Opportunity and Curiosity rovers will be shielded by the Martian atmosphere. They should have the best seats in the house.”

Emily Lakdawalla, a senior editor for The Planetary Society, says: “There are tons and tons of scientific observations planned by Mars orbiters, Mars rovers, and Earth-based observatories. In fact, most of the facilities that are planning to observe Siding Spring have already begun their work, and will continue observation for days after the encounter.”

Lakdawalla adds: “It’s not like a Mars landing; there won’t be a single moment when a bunch of serious-looking engineers suddenly erupt into cheers. Instead, there’ll be many smaller, non-televised moments as instrument teams receive their data from far-flung spacecraft and telescopes, spread out over the next several days. For the most part, the images of the comet won’t be instant classics; many will show only a single pixel, or a faint smudge. Some of the data won’t even arrive on Earth until the middle of next week.”

As astronomer Phil Plait, who writes the Bad Astronomy blog for Slate, notes:

The NASA comet page says the coma (the big fuzzy cloud of gas surrounding the solid nucleus of the comet) is about 20,000 km across. At closest approach, that means that if you were standing on Mars, the comet would appear to be over 8° across! That means that if you have a big hand, you could just barely block it with your upraised fist.

“That’s astonishing. What a view that would be! And while the astronomer part of my brain is envious and wishes we could see something like that from Earth, the human part of my brain is screaming obscenities at the astronomer part of my brain. In real life, it’s probably best comets keep their distance from us.”

Historic Flyby: Comet to Zoom Past Mars This Weekend

A comet will buzz Mars this Sunday (Oct. 19) in an epic encounter that has astronomers around the world tingling with excitement.

Comet Siding Spring, also known as C/2013 A1, will miss the Red Planet by just 87,000 miles (140,000 kilometers) at 2:27 p.m. EDT (1827 GMT) on Sunday. For comparison, the moon orbits Earth at an average distance of 239,000 miles (384,600 km).

While the comet won’t put on a show for skywatchers here on Earth, the fleet of robotic explorers at Mars will get an eyeful. They will study the comet, as well as any observable interactions between its shed particles and the thin Martian atmosphere. [See photos of Comet Siding Spring]

Comets are icy leftovers from the solar system’s birth, and Siding Spring is a pristine object that has never been “heat-treated” by the sun before. So any insights about the comet’s composition and behavior could help researchers better understand how our cosmic neighborhood began taking shape 4.6 billion years ago.

“This is a cosmic science gift that could potentially keep on giving, and the agency’s diverse science missions will be in full receive mode,” former astronaut John Grunsfeld, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, said in a statement. “This particular comet has never before entered the inner solar system, so it will provide a fresh source of clues to our solar system’s earliest days.”

All five operational spacecraft orbiting the Red Planet — NASA’s Mars Odyssey, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and MAVEN probes, India’s Mangalyaan spacecraft and Europe’s Mars Express — will observe the flyby. And NASA’s Opportunity and Curiosity rovers will crane their necks up to watch from the Martian surface as well.

The Siding Spring observation campaign is not restricted to the closeMars approach on Sunday. A number of different instruments on the ground and in space have already been observing Siding Spring, and they’ll continue to do so after the comet leaves the Red Planet in its rear-view mirror. A primary goal is to see how a pristine comet changes as it gets closer and closer to the sun.

There is no chance that Siding Spring will hit Mars during the flyby, and analyses suggest that material shed by the comet poses little danger to orbiting spacecraft. (Opportunity and Curiosity will definitely be fine, protected as they are by Mars’ air.) But NASA is taking precautions anyway; the space agency has maneuvered its orbiters to make sure they’ll be on the safe side of the planet when Mars gets closest to Siding Spring’s dust tail, officials have said.

The mountain-size Siding Spring spends most of its time in the Oort Cloud, a frigid comet repository that lies perhaps 50,000 astronomical units (AU) from the sun. (One AU is the distance from Earth to the sun — about 93 million miles, or 150 million km).

Scientists think Siding Spring’s multimillion-year orbit has never taken it closer to the sun than the realm of the giant planets (Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune). So the comet’s current journey is something special — something to marvel at for several different reasons, researchers said.

“This comet got knocked into the inner [solar] system by the passage of a star near the Oort Cloud. So, think about a comet that started its travel probably at the dawn of man, and it’s just coming in close now,” ‪Carey Lisse, a senior astrophysicist at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, said during a news conference on Thursday (Oct. 9).

“The reason we can actually observe it is because we have built satellites and rovers, and we’ve now got outposts around Mars,” Lisse added. “That’s pretty exciting.”

Super Typhoon VongFong: The Most Powerful Storm on Earth This Year Is Heading for Japan

I wonder what Ben Fulford will have to say about this, next week… -LW

Infrared satellite image of Super Typhoon Vongfong as of Oct. 7, 2014.

UPDATE, Oct. 7, 10:45 p.m. ET: Super Typhoon Vongfong is maintaining its extraordinary intensity, with 180 mile per hour estimated sustained winds and higher gusts. It is giving rise to waves of at least 50 feet in height, according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC).

Forecasters say Vongfong is likely to remain a Category 5 storm through much of the day on Wednesday, perhaps even intensifying further, unless internal processes weaken it unexpectedly. As it has for the past two days, the storm track forecast remains focused on an eventual landfall in Japan early next week, but the JTWC says it has “low confidence” in the exact track this far in advance.

YELLOW ROSE FOR TEXAS: HICKORY DICKORY DOCK

Linear Time is a construct. It can be altered. It is part of the program, the system architecture. When they invaded, they seized control of that system program. They could drop people in, wherever they wanted, within that program. They programmed the ‘skit’ they wanted that individual to play out. Then erased their memory and layered their minds with a ‘history’, they created. By cording the individual, when ever the individual attempted to gain access to their real memory, the program would activate defense systems that would disallow it in a number of ways. If needed, they sent the nordic/nephli, to manually alter the individuals memory. We had no defense against this. They never remembered they were ‘visited’.

‘Yashua’ is another name for ‘Jesus’ and both are the coven name of a single individual Royal. It was Charles, son of the incestuous twins, whose Egyptian coven name was “Horus”. “Whore Us”. ‘Nimrod’ is simply another coven name. These are all names for the enemy forces, not for mankind. Every time I turn around, they are altering those same books, adding/deleting, to create another myth for public consumption. It was part of the reason they were called whores.

Domine, like the rest of it you’ve mentioned, is all the “new” disinformation they’ve put out there in these recent years. “Domini” is the root word for “Dominate”.

“Holy” is also “Whole E”. When they altered our language, they put their names into every word. People have no idea, that they give the “call” every time they speak.

The El who work for QE & Vatican, rigged Yellowstone. Then they lost control of the simulation. Its much much bigger than they were going to make it, and now they cant stop it. ONE says, they’ll rue it. We get pulled before it can harm us. We don’t live through that. But the elite (EL- ITE = el followers) are going to have a really bad day.

‘New age enlightenment’ was a term used by the Toth followers, and is specific to the Luciferians.

There is no “Invasion”, the Invasion of the past is what we are being freed from. And “Adam Kadmon & Man”…that’s a twist to the extreme. We are not ‘soul centers’ for hybrid Snake and Man genetics. We are stolen souls, forced into a genetically stripped down body for the purpose of possession, slavery and torture. “Adam Kadmon” is simply another of An/Nibiru propaganda.

IMO, The more you ‘study’ their book, BIB-EL, the greater the hold they gain on your mind. Every time you do so, you give the ‘call’ which allows them to approach you. Every time they approach you, they cord you and alter you.

Just to add to your cern info, one of the main things they were doing with Cern, is attempting to open a portal to escape their fate. The other thing, is that the El set it up as a big bomb. Its still rigged. (edit) as far as I know, it is still rigged. Like they rigged Yellowstone.

You are in a server. It is a Virtual Artificially Intelligent, Natural Synthetic, Architecture. Hence the name “Great Architect” which he was not, nor did he create it. What he did do, was Hack it.
This is how the El’s hacked and inserted all those ‘artifacts’ and how they hacked us personally, and replaced our memories. They watch you from an event monitor, and can insert apps into your data stream, which then affect you in the ‘here and now’. Affecting not just memory, but personality traits as well.

The war is between the Father of the branch of Mankind, the One, and the Father of the branch of Snakes, Set/An or Satan, who heads the enemy forces, which are a collective of ‘fallen’ races such as the El (greys) and the Sith (reptilians)  The enemy forces on the planets in our system were subdued, and the planets were filtered, or ‘cleansed’, and placed into an alignment in order for the opening of the gate, so that we can leave.  The system we are in is a ‘construct’ and a multi-layered virtual reality. The images you see are from NASA files. We do not see the planets or space as it really is. NASA lied about everything. We were placed here in an act of war, and now we are about to be rescued and taken back to where we belong.

The money system is part of the slave system the enemy set over us. It does not go forward. You are returned to freedom. Stress of ‘bill(of Exchange Act/Rothschild), money, lack of necessaries or luxuries, are all part of the past.

They want you to ‘forgive’ their esoteric debt. They want you to sit and go “Omm”, and do nothing to stop them. Do not forgive it – that makes YOU assume their debt; understand they will pay for this. The law is, all debt must be paid.

Do not pass it by without comment to do so means you comply/agree with it (lack spine); but know that it is meant to create fear and this is what you need to ‘pass by’. No fear. They give the appearance that this will not end. It is only appearance.

There is a server, which is a computer server. The “Planets” and the images we are commonly given, are the ‘myth’ because they are a virtual reality. Then there is the Spirits, which are there as well, but masked. And yes, the veil is about to lift and you’ll be able to see and understand it all.

You won’t be disappointed. He’s worth the wait. Everyone above, thinks the ONE is special.
The el-ites were stalling, but that is past now. It is progressing, but on the upper level where we don’t really have knowledge of the steps taken, normally, for the transfer. I can only say, that everyone on the subconscious level, has received the FEN. Failure Event Notice. It is sent to everyone, when they are about to pull the electric/power plug and unplug all of us here.

Our Spirit Doubles are in fact our subconscious minds and they know everything. They communicate w/us through dreams, intuition, promptings.

It is however, about to happen. It will not be quite as I described, due to the changes. However, everyone is sealed, everyone is ready.

The next thing is the Global announcement which we’re waiting for, and that is when we get pulled and we all view these evil people flushed down to the pit.

Groundhog day …

The waiting, is now nearly over, and the Global Announcement is in the process of being ‘translated’ down to us.

So hang in there

NASA’s ‘Flying Saucer’ Takes a Dip in the Pacific—Oooops! [video]

I thought this was exciting when I heard, but the video malfunctioned and I only had audio. Then I got to see some of this craft. Pretty hokey if you ask me. A flying saucer with rockets? This is a joke, right?

I love how they talk like NASA is just in the experimental stages of flying saucers and exploring other planets. 

Wait until the taxpayers learn of the trillions of dollars of their money funneled into black projects involving craft they have no idea are even possible to build, not to mention fly.  ~ BP

Flying saucers are moving from the realm of conspiracy theories to reality. NASA’s Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator successfully flew 120,000 feet over Hawaii at four times the speed of sound, although it did suffer a parachute failure during re-entry and plunged into the Pacific Ocean. The space agency hopes the saucer-like craft will someday make its way to Mars. RT’s Manila Chan takes a look at its flight.

More Space Anomalies from BP Earthwatch: The Shield [video]

Jessie uploaded this video yesterday. Fascinating stuff going on up there. I wonder who THAT is.  I like to think it’s more of the cavalry coming.  Thanks to Jessie for keeping us apprised of what’s happening with the rescue operation.  ~ BP [no relation ;0)  ]
