Signs 70 – Thick and Getting Thicker

| November 12, 2022

Signs 70 – Thick and Getting ThickerIn our previous Signs article, we said, “the next six months will be a crucial period.”   So how did that play out?

The numbers came in for October 2022; we’re in the thick of it, and things are getting thicker.  Folks, this is getting serious.

Meanwhile, the USGS has issued a report for October, making it the highest month of the year so far, and the results are underwhelming as usual.

On that note, let’s get into the numbers.

October 2022 Fireballs

Fireballs are reported worldwide, and the American Meteor Society, 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.

In October, we saw a stunning increase for this period, but August still squeaks by for the highest month reported this year.  However, October sets a new all-time high for this month.

AMS Huge Event Fireballs

It is commonplace for Multistate / Country Fireballs to be reported as huge events because a huge event occurs when 100 or more eyewitness observers report it.

This dataset and multistate fireballs indicate that we are in a denser region of the inner ring of the Nemesis cloud, with a noticeable uptick in density and debris size.

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 2022, the results are short of topping August.

October 2022 is now the 4th highest month for this entire dataset, and if this is a trend, we’ll need to redesign the chart on the vertical in January.

Yearly AMS Fireball Totals

The inner ring of the Nemesis Cloud is bolting upward through the ecliptic into the Northern skies as Nemesis begins accelerating toward aphelion, its closest point to Sol. This brings us to the annual totals.

October has topped the years 2011 to 2019 by a significant margin, and this data is disturbing because November and December are the months with the highest number of fireball reports.

This does not portend well for the next sixty days.   We’re worried.

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 includes October 2022 with the data reported by the USGS for the month.  At 10,176, it is the highest reported month for the year so far and the first to achieve the coveted five-figure level.  Whoohoo.

Monthly Earthquakes 1/2019 to 10/2022

When we look at the annual global earthquakes for October, we see the same overall trend since January 2021. The numbers track previous years but with a flatter range.

Last month, we extracted the 2022 numbers for September from this table for a better look.

Earthquakes for 1/2022 to 9/2022

As you can see, a near-flat line of values is inconsistent with natural variability.

But wow, the USGS is reporting five-figure numbers for October.  Zowie, that’s got to scream off the chart – right?   Check October below.

Even though October sets two new records, the data falls within an artificial range.  When it comes to consistency, government lies set the bar.

We challenge you, readers, to go back through our Signs reports to see a similar pattern in any year since 1997 with a narrower margin of difference.

Of particular interest is jiggering, as we’ve reported previously.

Unless these artificial anomalies can be explained, the USGS is another captured Federal agency.  Until this, we will continue reporting USGS data for entertainment value only.

The bottom line is that trouble is flying at us, which is why I wrote the Win-Win Survival Handbook. It shows you how to locate a survival community and build it deep and safe.
