381. Thoth Vol IV, No 11: July 15, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... in the Earth's UV dayglow. (Seen in UV light the sunlit side of the Earth's atmosphere glows almost like the surface of the Sun due to ionized oxygen emission). The dayglow holes were famously misinterpreted by Prof. Louis Frank as being due to a steady influx of "snowball" comets. They do seem to be correlated with meteor trails. . . . My view is that meteor trails in the ionosphere act as convenient "leader-stroke" paths for a form of diffuse, doughnut-shaped ionospheric lightning known as "elves". They have been photographed at night above large electrical storms by low-light cameras. Their altitude and dimensions tally well with the dayglow holes. Of course ...

... themselves only in a study across the gamut of planets, from the least significant house-sized rock to the most stately terrestrial world. Like clockwork miniatures, asteroids demonstrate primary principles governing planetary evolution at an accessible scale, and thousands await discovery and exploration in near-Earth space alone." In the Electric Universe model, moons, asteroids, comets and meteors are created in electrical discharges between planetary bodies. They are ripped from a planet's surface by electrical forces that easily overwhelm the weak gravitational force. The most well known, albeit unrecognized, arc scar from a recent planetary encounter is seen on Mars in the form of the colossal Valles Marineris canyons. Two million cubic kilometers of rock was ...

383. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of the sky pervaded the ancient world. This raises a question: did the night sky five thousand years ago look just like it does today? The question may sound far-fetched, but modern cosmology has found strong indications that as late as Roman times far more was going on in the sky than appears to be happening today. Comets and meteors frequently roamed the firmament and all sorts of atmospheric disturbances took place on a grand scale. Comet impacts repeatedly led to worldwide floods and fires. Using the latest insights in cosmology we can form a detailed picture of what exactly was going on in the sky during such an atmospheric disturbance. It turns out that the spellbinding spectacle witnessed by ...

... or comet or a low-altitude explosion in the atmosphere. What makes the scarab even more astonishing is that the nearest source of Libyan desert glass is 500 miles west of the Nile, in the Western desert. Half of this distance lies beyond any known oasis. The glass is scattered over an area 15 miles in diameter. However, no meteor crater has been found, and the event responsible for the glass remains mysterious. In March this year, I wrote: .. . When I look at exposed strata on Earth, with the sharp physical and colour (often implying chemical) differences we see, I am more disposed to the extraterrestrial origin theory. That is particularly ...

... , said rover scientist Henry Moore of the U.S . Geological Survey in Menlo Park, Calif. However, the "problem of the pebbles," as Moore called it, is far from solved. They could have been rounded during a flood, he said, or formed from melted glass thrown into the air during a fiery meteor impact, cooling into globules as they hit the ground. They could even be splatters from ancient volcanoes. "It's going to take a long time to figure out what we've seen," he said. "[ But] I think we're looking at conglomerates." Another Martian mystery- concerning the possible presence of sand- is a clear ...

... in the careful estimate of the Russian astronomer S.K . Vsehsviatsky (1953), this unusual activity took place in historical times, only a few thousand years ago." 54 In this respect the question is: Did Venus, in its early history on a cometary orbit, have a numerous train of comets, small asteroids or meteors in orbit around it? Tom Van Flandern, formerly the head of the U.S . Naval Observatory, in his recent book, Dark Matter, Missing Planets & New Comets, discusses the question of the gravitational sphere of influence of a celestial body and points out that: . . . astronauts on their way to the Moon ...

... comets as ill omens, just as the contemporary Europeans regarded them as signs of war, famine and pestilence." Among the Aztecs, "Comets and earthquakes, which were always carefully marked down each year in the hieroglyphic manuscripts, were always considered omens of misfortune," notes Jacques Soustell. In our investigation we have grouped comet and meteor symbolism together because mythically the two are synonymous. "Comets are referred to in Quiché [highlands Maya] as uje ch1umil, tail of the star, ' and are considered omens of massive pestilence," observes Barbara Tedlock. "Throughout the Mayan area, meteors are thought to be evil omens forecasting sickness, war, and death ...

... the "dirty snow-ball theory", the radar experiment proves that there is a solid object in the centre of the comet. Cretaceous Catastrophe?sources: (1 ) Science 219, pp. 495-8 (2 ) Science 219, pp. 1383-90 (1 ) The currently fashionable theory to account for the terminal Cretaceous extinctions, that of meteor impact, has been under fire recently. In a well-argued paper M. R. Rampino & R. C. Reynolds have taken a further look at the clays of the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary, and have interpreted them in a different light. On theoretical grounds they argue that the boundary clay could be expected to contain a mixture of meteoritic ...

... no associations to dreams of this type. This would be a strong indication that there could be phylogenetic memory underlying them. Let me give you just one example of a dream of this kind. The dreamer, a woman of middle age, in psychoanalytic treatment, dreamt as follows: On a palisade of bricks I saw reflected a white meteor, which was about to fall and blow up the earth [31]. You are aware that dreams usually require interpretation before their meaning can be understood, and, presumably, interpretation of this dream would lead us away from the cosmic spectacle and into the patient's personal world. But it is worth inquiring why she chose to embody ...

... , 1992). S. A. Mackey's excesses in Mythological Astronomy (cited in Note 25) do not invalidate the general principle of parallelism in myth. Atkinson knows all about equinoctial precession (Note 25) but is unaware that orbital precession of a librating source can compensate the former. He knows all about the nature of current innocuous meteor showers but does not consider their nature immediately after the fragmentation of the parent body, when large chunks abound (Note 30). Thus, he does not appreciate the significance of enhanced fireball activity in a meteor stream, such as the Taurids, compared to the Leonids, which are fireball poor (Note 49). He knows ...
