rr0305b-lg    Cecil Certifier is absolutely correct. It is my job to report on ‘normal’ things going on in space. So let me offer a summary of recent ‘earth-affecting’ activities in space. It should be no surprise: 1) More galaxies grace the skies than men imagined; 2) Fireball as well as giant ice meteors continue to fall onto the earth; 3) Man multiplies space junk in the heavens; and 4) Stars are ‘eating’ planets!

Obtained from University of Minnesota scientists who worked with over 83,000 volunteer citizen scientists, machineslikeus.com posits some 300,000 galaxies are in the universe.  In a new catalog––10 times larger than any previous study of its kind––can be obtained online at data.galaxyzoo.org.  A paper on their findings is available in ‘Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.’

“The project, named Galaxy Zoo 2, is the second phase of a crowd sourcing effort to categorize galaxies in our universe. Researchers say computers are good at automatically measuring properties such as size and color of galaxies, but more challenging characteristics, such as shape and structure, can currently only be determined by the human eye.”

Dr. Kyle Willett, physics and astronomy researcher at the University says:  “This catalog is the first time we’ve been able to gather this much information about a population of galaxies. . . People all over the world are beginning to examine the data to gain a more detailed understanding of galaxy types.”

That number of volunteer space watchers represent what it would take one full-time astronomer to gaze in his telescope for 30 years. Lucy Fortson, professor of physics and astronomy in the University’ s College of Science and Engineering, adds: “With today’s high-powered telescopes, we are gathering so many new images that astronomers just can’t keep up with detailed classifications,”

In other news, at least four fireballs fell on the U.S. in a 24 hour period last summer, according to the American Meteor Society.  This month that society reports over 157 major fireballs fell over 17 states. Their site, amsmeteors.org, shows a map of where they fell over the East, West and Southern coasts.

According to The Extinction Protocol, in the same month the fireballs fell, a giant pure white ice meteor slammed into Bigbangbluff 01Tennessee near a playground filled with children. An extremely heavy and large chunk of ice, hit the earth with a loud shaking thud.  This megacryometeor is formed during strange atmospheric conditions. Somewhat similar to hailstones, they do not form in thunderstorms.

The Center for Astrophysics reports “billions of stars in our galaxy have captured rogue planets that once roamed interstellar space.  The nomad worlds, which were kicked out of the star systems in which they formed, occasionally find a new home with a different sun.” These stars speak of a “double-planet system.”

But worry not.  Those who are in Christ Jesus will soar through, even ruling these ever-expanding stars, planets and galaxies.  As Apostle Paul writes in Bible prophecies: “For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: . . .(Colossians 1: 16).” So get on The LORD’s ‘space ship’ for He comes very soon.
