Incoming Comets & Planet X

With at least two large Comets due to pass close to Earth in May 
2004 [sightings and trajectory confirmed in 2003 - this was 
discussed / presented at Earth Changes Central and over at 
Cyberspaceorbit as well], a lot of questions continue to arise about 
what is driving these types of Comets, and the cometary debris into 
the inner reaches of our solar system. Interestingly, a third Comet 
has entered into the May 2004 picture. At least one of the Comets 
will come within 24-31 million miles of Earth.

Here is a discussion at a public site hosted by Cyberspaceorbit 
about the two May Comets in question that started August 2003:

http://www.fulldisklosure.org/modules.php?...iewtopic&t=3470

Mainstream science is extremely reluctant to address many of the 
questions, or to present their 'findings' in regards to the concerns 
surrounding the cometary debris issue and what is driving them into 
the inner reaches of our solar system. This situation leaves us with 
those in the alternative science category who are willing to speak 
out. Unfortunately, those in the alternative science category have 
largely been left out of the financial loop in regards to adequate 
funding, and being able to access the necessary and adequate 
equipment [such as observatories] with which to do the necessary 
research.

Imagine the answers we could get and have at our disposal if the 
alternative scientists like James McCanney were given the necessary 
funding and equipment! Individuals like McCanney are in my 
estimation doing the best that they can do with what is available to 
them. We make do with what is available to us. What is amazing is 
that it is the "make do with what is available to us" scientists and 
researchers [and crowd] who more often than not turn out the best 
results.

There is certainly something at work that is 'herding' cometary 
debris into the inner reaches of our solar system and there is a lot 
of speculation that this something is a BIGGIE planet sized comet 
that is on a long term orbit through our solar system and part of 
the galaxy our solar system resides in. Some call this object 
Vulcan, others call it Nibiru, but many have taken to just calling 
it Planet X. The name is not as important as the actual event 
itself, and when this event will take place again. There is some 
strong speculation that the event [the passage of this Planet X 
object] will take place within the lifetime of most of us who are 
living now. After a careful and exhaustive study and analysis of 
what information is available, I for one happen to be among those 
who agree with that evaluation / analysis. Do I agree with a 
September passage date of such an object? Not necessarily. Until the 
object is spotted and it's speed and trajectory confirmed, giving an 
actual arrival / passage date will be hard to predict [let alone 
rely on], and even with the speed and trajectory variables known 
[approximated], such variables could abruptly change.

Many valuable documents relating to cosmic alignments, astronomical 
calculations, and past cosmic cataclysms have been either destroyed 
and/or lost over the last 2,000 years that in many respects, we are 
at least 2,000 years behind in regards to our thinking and figuring 
out what in many cases we are just now beginning to learn and 
understand in regards to future cosmic events, and of course, 
potential future cataclysms. If we had these documents today, and 
had not destroyed and lost them out of superstition, ignorance, and 
a lust for power and greed [be it political or religious], we would 
be in a much better situation to deal with whatever is about to 
befall us as a planet, and a people. We are just now starting to 
unravel ancient texts, codices, and other ancient writings with the 
answers we are in search of that we should have many centuries ago 
started figuring out, and taking heed and stock of.

The times ahead of us will certainly prove to be interesting, and in 
some respects, a challenge..., are you prepared for whatever may 
come?

Indonesia Earthquake (Magnitude 7.0) 
Friday 6th February 2003 
A major earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale hit Papua in 
Indonesia on Friday 6th February at 0605 hr local time. The 
epicenter was located at 3.60 degrees South and 135.52 degrees East, 
approximately 7 km east of Nabire town. Twenty-two people have been 
killed, including a policeman who was guarding the local legislative 
building in Nabire. The building was badly damaged. Ninety people 
have been injured and are being treated in hospitals, although the 
local hospital has been badly damaged. More fatalities are likely 
because not all of the data had been collected because many 
communication lines were cut. The airport in Nabire is closed due to 
damage. Hundreds of houses have been destroyed with many buildings 
on fire. There have been reports of a tsunami in the nearby 
Cendrawasih Bay, but this has not been confirmed. Relief activities 
have been undertaken by local disaster response agencies.

Powerful quake kills 23 people in Papua Nethy Dharma Somba, The 
Jakarta Post, Jayapura, Papua

A powerful earthquake rocked the isolated town of Nabire in Papua 
province on Friday, killing at least 23 people and injuring hundreds 
of others with 33 of them sustaining severe injuries.

The disaster forced panicky residents to flee their homes and camp 
out in the streets for fears of aftershocks. 

The quake measuring 6.9 Richter scale destroyed or damaged hundreds 
of houses, offices and public facilities including the Nabire 
General Hospital, the local legislative council building, the 
district court and the airport's tower. 

Local people said telephone lines connecting Nabire, on the northern 
coast of Papua, with other regions were disrupted, while the town 
was also hit briefly by a power blackout after the earthquake. 

The quake resulted in a fire that gutted at least six of the 
affected houses there. The blaze was believed to come from a 
kerosene-fueled stove. "A resident was cooking at the time of the 
earthquake. A stove used for cooking was then upturned as a result 
of the tremor, so that kerosene poured out causing a fire," local 
villager Wirda Fakaubun told The Jakarta Post. 

There were no reports of fatalities caused by the fire. Police and 
residents said that the 23 victims were killed after being hit by 
the debris of collapsing buildings. 

Many residents were still afraid to stay at home because of possible 
aftershocks. They instead set up makeshift tents outside their 
houses. 

"Indonesian Military officers are busy erecting tents outside the 
hospital to treat patients because the hospital itself is also badly 
damaged by the quake," Wirda said. 

Police and soldiers also helped evacuate all the patients, including 
the 12 most seriously injured ones, into tents. 

The 12 most seriously injured patients were later flown to a 
hospital in Biak regency. 

Although the runway of Nabire's airport was damaged, a medical team 
managed to land and brought first-aid kits, tents and intravenous 
drips for the victims. 

Sudaryono, operational division head of the Papua Meteorology and 
Geophysics Agency (BMG), said the quake hit at 6:05 a.m. for around 
30 seconds. 

The epicenter was about seven kilometers east of Nabire and 80 
kilometers deep, he added. 

He said tremors were also felt in Biak and other neighboring 
regencies of Enarotali, Manokwari and Wamena. 

Aftershocks hit Nabire seven times until 7 p.m. local time, 
Sudaryono said. BMG officials in Jakarta said at least one bridge 
was damaged, and walls and roads cracked in the quake. 

State-owned oil company Pertamina said the earthquake damaged 
pipelines at their depot in the town and caused fuel leaks. 

Local villagers had reported a tidal wave, in the nearby Cendrawasih 
Bay, but officials could not confirm this. 

Papua Governor Jaap Salossa is expected to arrive at the scene on 
Saturday to coordinate rescue operations. 

France's earth sciences observatory in Strasbourg was quoted by AFP 
as saying it was the largest quake measured in the region since 
2000. 

On Oct. 10, 2002, a tectonic earthquake rocked Ransiki area in 
Manokwari, claiming the lives of at least three people and damaging 
hundreds of houses. The quake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale 
also cut off the road connecting Ransiki with Manokwari. 

In 1996 a powerful quake hit Biak and Manokwari, causing a major 
tsunami that ripped through hundreds of houses in coastal areas. At 
least 96 people were reported dead. 

Indonesia, the world's largest archipelagic nation, is vulnerable to 
earthquakes and volcanic eruptions because of its location on the 
Pacific "ring of fire" -- volcanic arcs and oceanic trenches partly 
encircling the Pacific Basin. 

A quake measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale shook parts of the Maluku 
islands on Jan. 29, but no major damage or casualties were reported. 

On Jan. 2 parts of the resort islands of Bali and Lombok were hit by 
a quake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale, which damaged more than 
6,000 buildings.

Indonesia earthquakes kill at least 26

Friday, February 6, 2004 · Last updated 6:08 a.m. PT

By Lely T. Djuhari

Associated Press Writer

Jakarta, Indonesia -- Powerful earthquakes hit Indonesia's remote 
Papua province on Friday, flattening houses and leaving at least 26 
people dead and hundreds injured, authorities said.

The quakes, which measured up to a magnitude 6.9, hit hardest in the 
town of Nabire, damaging the local airport, a bridge, roads and 
buildings, said Margiono, a seismologist with the Meteorological and 
Geophysics Agency in the provincial capital, Jayapura.

Nabire official Johan Wanaha said 26 people were killed and hundreds 
more injured.

"Eighteen of those seriously injured have been evacuated to Biak 
because Nabire's hospital is also damaged," he said. "Even I myself 
and my family have to stay under a tent outside my damaged house. I 
think no one wants to stay inside because we're all still afraid."

Margiono, who like many Indonesians uses a single name, said 
villagers in the area had reported a tsunami, or tidal wave, in the 
nearby Cendrawasih Bay, but this could not be confirmed.

Papua governor Jacob Solossa was expected to inspect the area and 
coordinate rescue operations on Saturday, officials said.

Nabire is on the northern coast of Papua, 2,000 miles northeast of 
Jakarta. The province, formerly known as Irian Jaya, occupies the 
western half of New Guinea island.

The quake also struck the nearby towns of Enarotali and Manokwari.

Fauzi, a meteorologist in Jakarta, said up to 600 people were 
injured and he expected the numbers to rise. The police said they 
could not confirm that figure.

"People are staying in tents. They don't dare go home. They're still 
afraid of more quakes," Musa Horen, a municipal official in 
Manokwari was quoted as telling Jakarta's El-Shinta radio.

The quake damaged about 500 houses in the area, but no casualties 
were reported, he said. Most homes in the area are lightweight 
structures built from bamboo and thatch.

Several jolts were felt throughout the region from 4:05 a.m. to 6:30 
a.m. 

(2:05 p.m. EST to 4:30 p.m. EST Thursday.)

The largest, magnitude 6.9, was centered four miles east of Nabire 
town and 50 miles deep, according to the local Meteorological and 
Geophysics Agency. It lasted about 30 seconds and was immediately 
followed by nine aftershocks.

The U.S. Geological Survey, which tracks earthquakes worldwide, 
estimated the magnitude at 6.8 and said it was six miles deep. The 
Hong Kong Observatory put the time at seven minutes later.

Margiono said he believed the slight difference in the reporting of 
time and magnitude of the quake was due to differences in the 
calibration of their respective equipment.

Indonesia, the world's largest archipelago nation, is prone to 
earthquakes because of its location on the so-called Pacific "Ring 
of Fire" - volcanic arcs and oceanic trenches partly encircling the 
Pacific Basin.

29 killed as earthquakes rock Indonesian island 

John Aglionby in Jakarta

Saturday February 7, 2004

A series of earthquakes hit Papua, Indonesia's easternmost province, 
yesterday morning, killing at least 29 people and injuring up to 
200, local authorities said. 

Most of the casualties were in and around the town of Nabire on the 
north coast of the province, which comprises the western half of New 
Guinea island and is 1,900 miles from the capital, Jakarta. 

The most powerful of the 12 earthquakes measured 6.9 on the Richter 
scale and happened just after 6am. Its epicentre was a few miles 
east of Nabire. 

Muhamad Son Ani, the local police chief, said it damaged the 
airport, the main hospital, churches and numerous houses and 
offices. 

"Most people were killed and injured by falling masonry," he 
said. "It was hard to treat the injured because the hospital was 
also damaged. So the staff used emergency tents." 

He said thousands of people were afraid to return to their damaged 
homes and were camping in the open. "They are scared of further 
earthquakes," he said. 

Dortheus Asmurif, an official in Jayapura, the provincial capital, 
said some of the more seriously injured were evacuated by boat to 
the town of Biak and by air to Timika but it was proving hard to get 
to the remote location. 

"The problem is that the airport can only accommodate very small 
planes now," he said. "We will try and get some Cessnas or Twin 
Otters in tomorrow." 

Mr Dortheus said the latest death toll was 29 but it may rise. "We 
have not yet received detailed reports from the remote villages," he 
said. "Roads have been damaged and communications cut." 

The quakes were also felt in the towns of Enarotali and Manokwari, 
150 miles away. 

A spokesman for the oil giant BP, which is developing a multi-
billion-pound gas facility between Nabire and Manokwari at Bintuni 
Bay, said people on the site barely felt it. 

Mr Son Ani said the death toll would have been much higher if the 
quake had struck half an hour earlier. "People would have still been 
in bed and so would not have been able to escape," he said. 

Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur fairly regularly in 
Indonesia, the world's biggest archipelago country, but they rarely 
cause many casualties. 

The country is prone to earthquakes because of its location on the 
Pacific "Ring of Fire" - volcanic arcs and oceanic trenches partly 
encircling the Pacific basin.
