According to Italian amateur astronomer Ernesto Guido, this is only the fourth time in history that an impacting object was observed prior to atmospheric entry.

Bottom line: Asteroid 2019 MO exploded in Earth’s atmosphere on June 22, 2019, with an energy equivalent to about 3 to 5 kilotons of TNT. Such events happen unexpectedly, once or twice yearly, astronomers say. This one was unusual in that the asteroid was detected in the hours before it struck.

Some five thousand years ago the Mayans made a calendar predicting a meteor would strike the earth in December, 2012; and it did. So what did they have that we don't?

You know me, if this ain't politics it should be, as pretty much all we've developed in the name of WAR is in future going to save us and most living things from a celestial pummeling similar to the one that did in the dinosaurs.

That's our mission here on Earth and we should take it more seriously, because it explains our past and defines our future, and will wipe our scorecard clean, because our Colonialist past is not about Democracy, it's about Survival, and acquiring the tools to secure it, and they will be aimed straight at God, who apparently could care less. Aha!
