    Does this mean if you are on the East coast you are dead, and we are communicating with ghosts?

    read about the comet here
    http://cometography.com/pcomets/073p.html

    and this is interesting
    March 24, 2006: In 1995, Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 did something unexpected: it fell apart. For no apparent reason, the comet's nucleus split into at least three "mini-comets" flying single file through space. Astronomers watched with interest, but the view was blurry even through large telescopes. "73P" was a hundred and fifty million miles away.

    We're about to get a much closer look. In May 2006 the fragments are going to fly past Earth closer than any comet has come in more than twenty years.

    and

    There's no danger of a collision. "Goodness, no," says Yeomans. "The closest fragment will be about six million miles away--or twenty-five times farther than the Moon." That's close without actually being scary.
    The flyby is a big deal. "The Hubble Space Telescope will be watching,
    http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2006/24mar_73p.htm


    The number of fragments is constantly changing. When the breakup began in 1995 there were only three: A, B and C. Astronomers now count at least eight: big fragments B and C plus smaller fragments G, H, J, L, M and N. "It looks as though some of the fragments are themselves forming their own sub-fragments," says Yeomans, which means the number could multiply further as 73P approaches. No knows how long the "string of pearls" will be when it finally arrives. (Note added April 10, 2006: Astronomers are currently tracking 19 fragments.)

    wow!!!

    so how fast are the 30 pieces of comet flying toward here at?

    one the size of a truck could do damage

    Typical speeds for meteorites and comets approaching the earth are like 50,000 mph plus. I have some figures around here someplace. The explosive results of such collisions are simply bizarre. Our speed around the Sun is about 67,000 mph. This isn't much help since most comets approach from the south, perpendicular to the plane of our orbit about the Sun.
    There are scarier things. It's pretty well accepted that a Supernova within 30 light years of the earth will wipe out all life in this Solar System. Our atmosphere will be instantly swept away, rocks will boil. This means that sometime within the last 30 years, a nearby star could have exploded and the first that we will know about it is when our atmosphere is instantly swept away in a high temperature plasma torrent,... The End. DRB

    Sleep well tonight DRB

    Despite rumors spreading across the Internet, NASA says the Earth will safe from a broken comet on May 25. The Hubble space telescope took this photo of Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3, which has broken into about 40 pieces. The comet and its pieces are expected to pass within 5.5 million miles from the Earth between May 12 and May 28. That's 20 times the distance from the Earth to the moon. It will be visible on small telescopes.

    Record meteorite hit Norway

    As Wednesday morning dawned, northern Norway was hit with an impact comparable to the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima.

    At around 2:05 a.m. on Wednesday, residents of the northern part of Troms and the western areas of Finnmark could clearly see a ball of fire taking several seconds to travel across the sky.
    A few minutes later an impact could be heard and geophysics and seismology research foundation NORSAR registered a powerful sound and seismic disturbances at 02:13.25 a.m. at their station in Karasjok.
    Farmer Peter Bruvold was out on his farm in Lyngseidet with a camera because his mare Virika was about to foal for the first time.
    "I saw a brilliant flash of light in the sky, and this became a light with a tail of smoke," Bruvold told Aftenposten.no. He photographed the object and then continued to tend to his animals when he heard an enormous crash.
    "I heard the bang seven minutes later. It sounded like when you set off a solid charge of dynamite a kilometer (0.62 miles) away," Bruvold said.
    Astronomers were excited by the news.
    "There were ground tremors,......

    Doom-mongers still have a few more days for this, as I remember hearing there is activity until June 25th-ish. Yay !
