Russian Meteorite Air Burst - Revisited
Photo and info credit: Siberian Times
You may remember seeing it on the news. Back in June of 2013 the story was on every form of media as a large meteorite disintegrated
over the Urals. Due to the proliferation of cameras, even in Russia, hundreds of photos of the event quickly surfaced along
with several clear videos.
After leaving a spectacular trail the meteor exploded. The result of the sonic boom injured more than 1200 and damaged or
destroyed buildings over a wide area. Those of you familiar with the Tunguska Incident will recognize this as a smaller but
very similar event.
Soviet scientists believe the meteorite was the biggest space rock to hit earth in the last century.
It was estimated to weigh more than 100,000 tons and was around 55 feet in diameter.
Some smaller fragments of the explosion reached the ground with at least one leaving a hole in the ice of a lake approximately
50 feet in diameter. It's amazing to us that no one was actually struck by falling debris.
The photo above reminds
me of the one below. The 2nd photo is from one of my all time favorite movies, the classic 1951 sci-fi movie, The Thing From
Another World, where a flying saucer crashed in the Arctic making a similar indention in the ice.
It starred James Arnes (Matt Dillon) as an alien vegetable.
How do we know the air blast of 2013 wasn't actually a saucer crashing in Russia? Would the Russians actually tell us the
truth? Of course, as a sci-fi author I tend to lean to the X-Files explanation for things.
I first saw the movie about
55 years ago but I could never forget the closing. At the end of the movie a newspaper reporter who witnessed the sequence
of events finally gets to make his report and in closing gives the world some sound advice I have never forgotten.
"North Pole, November 3rd. One of the world's greatest battles was fought and won today by the human race. Here at the
top of the world a handful of American soldiers and civilians met the first invasion from another planet.
A man by
the name of Noah once saved our world with an ark of wood. Here at the North Pole a few men performed a similar service with
an arc of electricity. The flying saucer which landed here and it's pilot, have been destroyed but not without casualties
of our own meager forces.
And now before giving the details of the battle, I bring you a warning. Every one of you
listening to my voice, tell the world, tell this to everybody where ever they are... watch the skies! Everywhere, keep looking!
Keep watching the skies!"

Rocket Man Go Boom!
Some people should not be allowed to fly HPR and Rocket Man is one of them. In case you didn't hear, a few months back at
the height of his quest to lob nukes at the U.S. more than 200 of his team of "crack scientists" died in a cave-in
as a result of their nuclear bomb testing.
As a result, we haven't heard much from him lately and now he has a meeting
scheduled with Trump.
Here's a shot of Kim Jong-il at his monthly club launch. They're not sanctioned by NAR or TRA, just too many safety code violations;
no wavier, war head, active guidance and leaving the range just to name a few.
On the serious side, the deaths of the 200 scientists came as the result of cave-ins believed to be caused by underground
nuke detonations within their testing range.
While it's not uncommon for most nations to try and keep their testing
facilities a secret, you have to wonder just how smart they really are when they build their bunkers underground too. Perhaps
they should first focus on building better tunnels.
But I have to give them credit, they've been highly successful
bombing the Sea of Japan!
