New amateur video of the meteorite that exploded over Russia’s Ural mountains emerges as scientists discuss the possibility of a global asteroid-warning system. Full Story: New footage of a meteorite exploding across the sky over the Russian region of Cheliabinsk near the Ural mountains. Amateur videos continue to emerge days after the meteorite struck the area, damaging buildings, shattering glass and sending more than 1000 to hospital with cuts and scrapes. Search teams have descended on Lake Cherbarkul, where the meteorite crashed Friday, to look for remains, but have been unable to find any large pieces so far. Residents have also joined the search and claim to have found a few fragments themselves. The Russian space agency said the fireball was travelling 30 km per second and although it did not kill anyone, the meteorite caused around $33 million in damage. This prompted scientists on Monday to discuss the possibility of an early warning system for the planet that would encompass telescopes and anti-asteroid missiles. [Vladimir Lipunov, Head, Space Monitoring Laboratory, Moscow University]: “How many telescopes do we need? That depends on the field of view. It is now possible to build telescopes of 4 to 8 square degrees. We need 10 to 20 telescopes around the Earth, dozens of them.” NASA estimates the meteorite was 17 metres across and weighed about 10000 tonnes before entering Earth’s atmosphere and exploding with nuclear bomb force.

    I just think it is so strange in all these videos NONE of the traffic suddenly stops because of the flash of the so-called meteor.


    Several lines in the Hidden texts in the ETNA ATEN pdf forum published February 2012 –
    stated that
    a) it would ARC OVER
    b) the date between Feb 18 – Mar 17
    c) that it would set off Etna
    d) that it had been AIMED by Other Worlders
    e) that it would be prevented from great damage by AIDED CHARM (Golden Host Doing)
    e) is in 4 27 4

    that is: the AIM of it would be altered by positive Off Worlders
    Nostradamus says that another one VERMONT towards CHILE in MARCH/Easter (what year?)
    would be followed by a hologram of
    a) huge tsunami
    b) many space craft coming to pick up people (these will not be a hologram)
    c) this is part of the FALSE RAPTURE
    (there are no toilets on space craft so you work it out)

      I know I probably sound kind of stupid but I do not know the pdf you speak of. Could you possibly post a link to this? I would very much like to read this!
      Thank you, Patti Simmons
