51. The MacCecht and Cuchulainn [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... from Indo European bheleg = to shine or flash (as lightning flashes, or a shooting star) as in Latin fulgeo = I flash, and fulgar = lightning. These Belgic tribes therefore seem to be named after features of deity which impressed them. Gai Bolga was the great spear of lightning, the thunderbolt of the gods, a meteor. The Gaulish tribe of Meldi appear to be directly linked to the Gaelic or Goidel Mileadh, or Sons of Mil. This group formed the ruling elite of early Christian Ireland and appear to have migrated from Gaul (hence Gael) shortly before or after its conquest by the Romans in 50BC, establishing control over various Irish tribes. ...
52. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... unusually large comet which Clube and Napier (1982) postulated as the source of the disruption to the inner Solar System, and which I unwisely criticised (1983) as being not founded in fact, would now appear to have been found in Chiron. The other remains of the large comet can be found in comet Encke, the Taurid meteor stream and some 50-100 Earth-crossing asteroids. Whereas Clube and Napier have indicated in The Cosmic Winter some relatively minor events' which might have been caused by Earth's encounters with the Taurids, the reader is left to deduce that the more significant events' (the Deluge, the Exodus) were caused, in their thesis, by comet Encke ...
53. Volcanic Systems Ch.3 (The Riddle of the Earth) [Books]
... visit the neighbourhood of the crater, while the Professor of Geology at the University in St. Pierre wrote articles for the local journals telling the public they had nothing to fear. A few days later not a soul was left alive 1 The explanation of the Martinique disaster is that a volcano may be set into paroxysmal activity by contact with meteoric gases (which gases may drift into the atmosphere without the body necessarily striking the earth), and that such an absorption of gaseous fluids leads to explosions and a minor eruption such as both Pele'e and Soufri'ere displayed until the crisis. When a volcano is in eruption it apparently exerts magnetic attraction to any meteoric body in the vicinity of ...
54. Chapter 7 Iron, Diorite and Other Hard Rock [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... cut: "But even if we were to allow Heinsohn the use of iron tools . . . that, in itself, is not enough reason to redate the pyramids to the 42 Fischer, op.cit., p. 109 214 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2, 3 iron age. After all, meteoric iron has been known and used long before that."43 Cardona's hypothesis is that if iron is necessary to cut hard rock, since the ancient Egyptians had iron in the form of meteorites, then they used it to work these materials. As support for this thesis he cites the name for "iron" from the Sumerians as ...
... From: The Riddle of the Earth by Appian Way CD Home | Contents Chapter VIII Comets And Their Gases SOLIDITY OF COMETARY NUCLEI METEORS are the residue of comets. Obeying some law of the universe, a comet, when it disintegrates into smaller particles, joins one or other of the various meteor streams which cross the earth's path annually, such as the Leonids in March, the Aquarids in May, the Perseids in July and also in August to September, and the Gemenids in October to November. There are forty recognised separate meteor streams in all, and these frequently vary their radiant point to a slight extent. 111. The nature of a comet may be understood ...
56. Cometary Catastrophes and the Ideas of Immanuel Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Review]
... a comet nucleus comes close to the Sun, the ices at the surface vaporize and the dust disintegrates, flying off in the Solar wind and creating what we recognize as a tail. If the comet goes round the Sun enough times, all the ices are boiled away and much of the dust is spread round its orbit in a "meteor stream". It is possible also that some of the dust coagulates so as to build a dense coating round the nucleus, in which case it turns into a solid body no longer capable of producing a tail, just like an asteroid. After a few hundred circuits, therefore, a comet has evolved into generally invisible bodies: ...
57. The Ring About The Earth at 2300 BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... then avoid further braking (or at least encounter significantly reduced braking), so that the particles could then exist in a relatively stable orbit. There is a general recognition that cometary meteoroids have a density much less than water and are extremely fragile, having essentially the same composition as the parent comet. Verniani makes a typical statement: Most meteors are of cometary origin and are porous, crumbly objects composed of loosely conglomerate, spongelike material' . This composition is susceptible to fragmentation even under very low pressures. Jacchia further discusses the mechanism of successive fragmentation'. He states that the average meteor may be visualized as having a very porous and fragile structure .. ...
58. Effects of Atmospheric Dust on the Arcus Visionis [Journals] [Kronos]
... . This parameter alone of the thirteen is affected by conditions of the Earth's atmosphere and therefore this parameter by itself might indicate "upheavals of the Earth", if such upheavals are associated with large amounts of dust loading of the atmosphere, e.g . from volcanic eruptions, strong winds blowing over dry areas, from extraterrestrial sources (meteor dust, comet tail dust), etc. The effect of atmospheric dust loading on the sighting of Venus (or any other heavenly body except the Sun) when the Sun is illuminating the upper atmosphere is easy to understand qualitatively. The basic idea is that the atmospheric dust (and air molecules themselves) scatters sun rays in all ...

... hair and blood are listed as examples of these other types of object. (ii) On WIC p.227- 8 V refers to Edouard Biot's Catalogue général des êtoiles filantes et des autres météores observés en Chine aprés le Vile siécle avant J.C ." (1846) as well as to Hemusat p.7 for the meteoric events of 657 BC. First, the original French of Biot: "Annnees avant JC 657.

... and preserves the equilibrium of its system on which other systems may be balanced. In our world the seas are the slow but inexorable antagonists of the lands and those who depend on "Mother Earth" for their sustenance and existence. The question to be asked then is this: if accretions of land are the result of cometary, or meteoric, appulsions, what is the effect of these upon the oceans and seas? The reply seems simple. The waters occupy roughly five-eighths of the globe, and more meteoric bodies enter the seas than strike the land surface. Thus we discover at once the inevitable displacement of water occasioned by the entrance of a celestial body which may be ...
