Yup, more rocks are coming our way, this much is certain, and not only from the sky.
As of November 3, the volcano on La Palma is active, loud, and spewing massive amounts of ash.
The island also experienced another 5.1 magnitude earthquake today. To its credit, the local government is advising citizens to prepare for a magnitude 6.0 event and that there is no end in sight.
What about our government? There is only one truth; the American government lies.
These lies are either to your face or done with a cover-up and this is what we discovered in preparing this installment. Simply put, the USGS is NOT reporting La Palma quakes and we’ll show you the numbers.
October 2021 Fireballs
Fireballs are reported worldwide, and the American Meteor Society which is the primary source for North America, for this dataset.
AMS Multistate / Country Fireballs
Multistate/country fireballs cross the borders of multiple states and countries. For this reason, this is a critical category in the dataset because of the distance these fireballs must travel to receive reports from across large geographic areas.
Beginning in August we saw a statistically consistent uptick for that month from 2018 through to 2021 and October continues the trend. Multistate fireballs cross territorial boundaries and so they are typically large objects with flatter trajectories.
AMS Huge Event Fireballs
It is a commonplace occurrence for Multistate / Country Fireballs to be reported as huge events because a huge event occurs when 100 or more eyewitness observers report a huge fireball event.
The numbers for October are three times higher than September and this month also set a record in 2019 for five events. This does not bode well for November.
A key distinction is those huge events often have more pitched trajectories. Hence, they are often brighter and observed by eyewitnesses in smaller geographic areas.
AMS Monthly Total Fireballs
The monthly total fireballs are the most critical category in this dataset. When we look at the monthly total of fireballs for October 2021 relative to AMS Multistate / Country Fireballs, two completely different stories. Let’s look at the USGS version first.
The AMS Multistate / Country Fireballs data subsets plus the monthly spike in October clearly indicate that we’ve entered an area of space that is unusually dense with Earth-crossing objects.
Yearly AMS Fireball Totals
Assuming we are passing through the outer dust rings of the Planet X system, are we’re moving into a thicker ring where there is a higher likelihood of a catastrophic impact event? This brings us to the annual totals.
The first ten months of 2021 are significantly higher than 2019 and all years prior. If this trend holds, 2021 will be the highest ever so let’s hope it doesn’t go out with a bang.
J.P. Jones is spot on. We’re pushing into a region of our inner solar system with a higher density of Earth-crossing objects. It is not about if. It’s about when.
Earthquakes Since 1997
At the outset of our Signs series, J. P. Jones created a dataset spreadsheet that tracks the total number of earthquakes each month beginning with 1997. The updated table below now includes October 2021 with the data reported by the USGS for the month.
Since January 2018, the monthly earthquake totals were always in the five-digit range, so when J.P. Jones did the data query for October, 9,363 earthquakes were reported.
Given the volcano eruptions at La Palma and elsewhere, this seemed odd and so he began parsing the data. He found that the USGS only reported a single 4+ in that area for October.
We looked for an alternate source for La Palma and found it on the Volcano Discovery site. Here is the same table with this correction.
Volcano Discovery reported 424 earthquakes of all magnitudes on La Palm, for the month of October. This brings the total up from 9,363 to 12,878, and our concern is that this under-reporting is not limited to La Palma.
Monthly Earthquakes 1/2017 to 10/2021
When we look at annual global earthquakes for October we see an appreciable drop in the overall levels as compared with previous years.
Now instead of being led to believe that things are beginning to finally settle down, what we see is that 2021 is still higher than 2017 and 2018. Plus, what else is missing?
Between suppressed earthquake data and crazy fireball activity for October, the rest of the year is in a word, dangerous.
