Signs 71 – OMG It’s Bad + Cut to the Chase with Marshall Masters

| December 10, 2022

Signs 71 - OMG It’s BadNovember 2022 has set a new record, and the fireball data is breathtaking and most discouraging.  If fact, it was grim right out of the gate.

On November 13, 2022, we took a snapshot of the AMS Huge Event and Monthly Total Fireballs datasets and were stunned.

In this installment of Signs, we’re using a slightly different format because, as they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

We’ll present fireball data for three dates.  Look for the following color-coded dates:

  • October 31, 2022
  • November 13, 2022
  • November 30, 2022


I will discuss this article at length during my live Cut to the Chase on show this Tuesday, December 13, 2022, at 8 PM Eastern, so be sure to tune in.  That interview will also be available in the archive at Red Circle after the 13th.

Meanwhile, the USGS issued a November report, and the lie continues, as you shall see.  Then, I close with a summary of the meaning of all this, and on that note, let’s get into the numbers.

Oct/Nov 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.

When you compare the two, the first thing that stands out is that November 2022 is so extreme it changes the graph scaling.  i.e., Game changer.  Could this be a one-trick pony?

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.

Never before has any mid-month snapshot come close to first place, yet November 2022 ties for first place with Feb/Mar 2021.  Whoulda thunk it?  And, of course, the numbers for November 2022 changed the graph scaling once again.  i.e., Another game-changer.  Forget the pony thing.

AMS Monthly Total Fireballs

The monthly total fireballs are the most critical category in this dataset. For this study, we’ll use the monthly total of fireballs for October/November 2022.

Bada bing bada boom, the mid-month snapshot for November was bad enough, but now the whole month sets an all-time historical high for monthly total fireball.  But wait, there’s more.  i.e., Yet another game-changer!!!  Are you serious?

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.

The first eleven months of 2022 are in a dead statistical heat with all of 2021 and December is going to be a very busy month.

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 November 2022 with the data reported by the USGS for the month.

Monthly Earthquakes 1/2019 to 11/2022

When we look at the annual global earthquakes for November, 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 October from this table for a better look.

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 November.

The year has been consistent because each month’s reported 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.

USGS Jiggerning 1/2008 to 7/2021

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.


I usually get these Signs articles up a little sooner, but this one was miserable.  If this surge pattern persists through December, it’s only a matter of when and that could be very soon.  Worst of all, this is a slow-motion train wreck that will take a decade or more to play out, as the illustrations below demonstrate.

If you’re telling yourself there is nothing to do about it because rocks always fall from the skies, wakey-wakey, we’re looking at some pretty damn big rocks now.

Folks, there is something you can do about it.  For years I’ve encouraged folks to watch Duck And Cover with Bert The Turtle.  It aired in 1951 as the Cold War took on nuclear dimensions.


Parents and grandparents.  Sit down with your younglings and watch this together.  Then act it out with family drills.   Is this old film relevant?  Absolutely.  Radiation is the principal difference between a super bolide air burst and a nuclear weapon airburst.  If you are on the periphery, this knowledge could save your life and help spare you from harm.

On the other hand, can this knowledge save you if you’re sitting on ground zero?  Of course not, but what are the odds of that versus being injured?   Life is a risk, so do not be foolish.  Teach your younglings well.

I wrote the Win-Win Survival Handbook in anticipation of these coming times.  It shows you how to locate a survival community and build it deep and safe.
