The Tunguska event was an enormously powerful explosion that occurred near (and later struck) the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, at about 7:14 a.m. KRAT (00:14UT) on June 30 [O.S. June 17], 1908. The explosion, having the epicenter (60.886°N, 101.894°E), is believed to have been caused by the air burst of a large meteoroid or comet fragment at an altitude of 5–10 kilometres (3–6 mi) above the Earth's surface. Read more, here.In late breaking news shared by The Gralien Report, eyewitnesses in "Cuba now claim a similar explosion has occurred over the province of Cienfuegos, described as a 'very bright light, and of a size 'comparable to that of a bus.'"
As to other movie tie-ins, look at the following early report in which a bottom caption of Skyfall is used, and the reporter mentions War of the Worlds and Armageddon. She later makes mistakes, such as saying these are asteroids, instead of meteorites. But it is apparent that many people are subconsciously and naturally linking the two events. (Her report, btw, is one of the first, in which only 100 injured people were known. She does mention five fragments, a factoid not heard often in USA-UK reports.)
How does this coincidence/synchronicity strike you?
An insightful friend, Philip Levine, a writer, former therapist and astrologer, publicly shared this on Facebook today:
Today we have something even rarer than being impacted by the big (mostly empty) Universe we live in. We are being impacted twice! A meteor explodes above the Earth and injures people and destroys property. And an asteroid is passing 17,000 miles away from us.First of all, let us hope that others are not or will not be struck, physically, by any of events.
In other times and places, these would be a sign, a very big sign, saying something (what depends on which prophet or psychic you listen to). If you think the Universe is intelligent and an embodiment of some kind of Being, then you would want to know what It is saying.
If, like most, you believe the Universe is just a random collection of debris with no meaning other than chaos, then Statistics is your God. And the statistical chance of ONE of these things happening is immensely small, but TWO on the SAME DAY, within hours, in this infinitely vast Universe, is something to give one pause.
If you aren't sticking your head in the sand, how does this coincidence/synchronicity strike you?
I must say, it all does seem to be incredibly intriguing timing, that is very Fortean, synchromystic, and cosmic. It is as if, sometimes, a cosmic window has opened. Is this one of those times?
