The statistics pertaining to the Foci of the comet Hale-Bopp (HB) certifies that a series of events relevant to the specified factors of influence show a trend to manifest intensely in a close vicinities of the comet HB’s Time Foci and, first of all, in those countries where those events firstly took place. As it is a trend, this does not mean that at each Focus and at each country these events must take place in abundance, but that after a trend has been revealed, the events would develop in the respective way and, in most cases, would show intensification at the subsequent Foci. The best way to check this statement is to track the statistics for countries (e.g. N. Korea) of types of events (e.g. air crashes) over the years [3] that passed since the initial manifestations in 1997 [5].

As the below analysis shows, this Spring all Foci were marked by extremely numerous manifestations – especially those which are associated with air crashes, crazy shootings, take overs, quakes, and even in new aspects: thus the Natural calamities, apart from the former factors, are now replenished with the asteroid  threat.

1. After an intense manifestations of the Autumn Focus T7 (Sep.16), when the starting point of the world-wide financial and industrial crisis had begun, and Winter Focus T2 (Jan. 3), when most pronounced events were the European Gas Crisis and Israeli Invasion in Gaza, this Spring these and many other manifestations were so numerous and sound that they “filled the gaps” between the 5-day orbs of the HB’s Foci. Such a surge in multiplicity of manifestations relative to factors of influence, countries and number of events at zero level of Solar activity []  in March – April relative to Sunspots which stimulate manifestations pertaining to the Foci [5, 6] may seemingly be explained just by the Bifurcation Point BP15 [7] that fits this period, or more exactly – coincides with the Focus T4 (viz. March 20). To this end it is important to note that these manifestations have decreased in number after Focus TB (April 7 – 11) as quick as they their number increased before, at Focus PG (Feb. 24 – 26) preceding the comet HB’s Focus T3 (viz. March 3), although this decrease is slightly masked by a typical after-effect. To illustrate this, a greater time span, than a conventional 5-day orb, is reflected in the Summary for TB.

2. As the events appearing at Foci act as “sparks” for the subsequent development we may assume that those trends that obtained a support by multiplicity of events would probably obtain further development in the forthcoming Foci – on T6 (viz. July 4, 14) and T7 (September 16), and may be further on, in cycle – T1, T2, etc. In particular, these trends are seen in influence of Space objects, Earthquakes, socio-political and economical collisions (See Sects. 1 – 3).

3. We may also presume that the prospective growth of Solar activity would benefit [6] to intensification of the awaited events, the more so since the protracted minimum of 11-year Solar cycle accelerates the growth of Solar activity (and thus its effect) the maximum of which is expected in 2012 (if not retarded).

1.1. Asteroids


1.1.1. Basic Objects of Consideration

Asteroids of Class GC. The asteroids which are larger than 1 km are extremely dangerous for the Earth. The energy released by a collision with such an object would cause major effects on the climate and biosphere which could be devastating to human civilization. This is the group of Global Catastrophe (GC) asteroids.

For this reason the NASA’s Near Earth Object Observation Program, known as Spaceguard was launched. It was provided for detection and tracking of potentially hazardous asteroids that stray close to the Earth and was aiming for completeness only for asteroids larger than 1 km diameter. The lesser asteroids have to come very close before it is within range of the survey telescopes.

Over the last 60 years only the object 1950 DA of this type was close to the Earth (See Table 1).

Asteroids of Class LC. However, even the asteroids which are larger than 40 – 50 m are dangerous for the Earth. Thus, even the “smallest” asteroids of this type, such as 2002 EM7 or  2009 DD45 (See Table 1) are about the same size as a hypothetical object that could have caused the Tunguska Explosion in 1908 and levelled 800 square miles of forest with the force of 1,000 atomic bombs that dropped on Hiroshima (10 to 15 mega tonnes of TNT). Besides, even lesser rocks such as 2002 EM7 could do serious damage by unleashing monster tsunamis on coastal areas. This is the group of Local Catastrophe (LC) asteroids.

Asteroids of Class AT. The asteroids being lesser than 30 – 40 m. Due to their smaller size they are also called meteoroids. Had this object hit Earth, it would probably have detonated high in the atmosphere or produced a blast measured in hundreds of kilotons of TNT. This is a group of asteroids (or meteoroids) which may produce Atmospheric or Limited Terrestrial (AT) effect (e.g. explosion or tsunami) depending of their size, velocity, trajectory (the angle at which it hits the Earth’s atmosphere), and composition (whether this is an icy, rocky, or metallic body).

Since the last decades only the asteroids of classes LC and AT have approached the Earth. More or less systematically they were being detected and registered during the last decade. But what is important, many of them were detected after they had passed the perigee since they were “small” enough and were not seen in the direction of the Sun.

Consider the closest approaches to the Earth by asteroids that are presented in the table 2 [1, 2] that lists, in order of increasing nominal geocentric distance, the closest known approaches to the earth by minor planets. As far as it contains a great number of meteoroids, we concentrate on the first 21 objects of this table (viz. on the 21 asteroids that missed the Earth at the shortest distances over the period of observation) so that the 21st is the largest one in this group (2002 MN with a diameter of 50 to 120 m), whereas the subsequent group of farther passing asteroids is basically composed of several dozens of meteoroids of secondary importance (due to their small size and remoteness). For distinctness, call it the Closest asteroid, or C-group. Several representatives of this group and other important asteroids are described in Table 1 in more detail.

1. The asteroid, coming from the direction of the sun, was not detected until four days after its near-earth approach. "Asteroid 2002 EM7 took us (viz. astronomers) by surprise”. Certainly, anything coming from the direction of the sun will typically not be seen, taking everyone by surprise, including whoever experiences a close encounter.

2. It has the distinction of being one of the ten closest known asteroids to approach Earth. Few asteroids this large have ever been known to pass so close to Earth: “of the objects that have come closer, only one is bigger”.

1.1.2. Analysis (for the asteroids that appeared since 1997)

The statistics of asteroids [1] “begs the question, why are we seeing so many asteroids lately?” [3].

1. General trend. Indeed, firstly we see that during the last years the asteroids, in average, come closer and closer to the Earth. In years, the table of C-group is replenished as follows.

2. Major asteroid Perigee vs. the HB’s Foci. Consider, how the time of Perigee of the asteroids of Class LC correlates with the Foci of the comet Hale Bopp.

1.1. Only four asteroids of the C-group, 2004 FH, 2009 DD45, 2002 XV90, and 2002 MN belong to class LC since their size exceeds 50 m (2004 FH is lesser in size, but its mass is important as well). If the former two passed the Perigee two weeks before the respective Foci (July 4 and December 21, respectively), the latter two – in 2 and 1 day before the Foci March 20 and March 3, respectively.

1.2. Meanwile, the upper estimate of the sizes of asteroids 2005 FN, 2009 FH, and 2006 DD1 is 15 to 30 m, which allows to consider them as quite dangerous, if not belonging to class LC. The remaining asteroids were “small” enough (up to 7 – 12 m).

The former two ones passed the Perigee in a day (on March 18.51 an 18.91) before the Focus March 20, and the latter – in a week before the Focus March 3.

1.3. After a short “recession” in 2005 – 2007, a “rain” of asteroids took place in 2008 (one of them, 2008 TC3, about 5 m in diameter, burned up in Earth's atmosphere over Africa 19 hours after it was discovered) as if it “heated” the situation, and an “aimed shooting” in 2009, as in 2004.

Indeed, the comparison of C-group asteroids for the years of 2004 and 2009 (See Table 3) shows that:

– The asteroids were passing the Perigee as synchronized by HB’s Foci, with a deviation of 2 – 3 days!

  In 2009 a LC-class asteroid 2009 DD45 passes Perigee two weeks before a meteoroid 2009 FH, as in 2004 a similar in size LC-class asteroid 2004 FH passes Perigee at a similar distance two weeks before a meteoroid FU162; pay attention, that all of them pass the Perigee at the HB’s Foci! Note that the  2004 FH is the only asteroid of this size and remoteness that precedes 2009 DD45.

  Moreover, the Weekly World News reports that an Italian researcher recorded footage of the asteroid 2009 DD 45 and discovered a UFO near it! After reviewing video of the rock, some scientists noticed an object that must move in order to avoid collision. What is it? Sceptics are speculating that it could be just a bug on the telescope, but what are the odds of it moving at that exact moment?

1.1.3. Conclusion

After the comet Hale-Bopp’s flyby in 1997, the asteroids had started to “shell” the Earth more aimingly: from year to year they pass the Perigee (i) at a lesser distance and (ii) closer to the comet Hale-Bopp’s Time Foci.

1.2. Space  Debris  and  ISS

As the Earth was in danger relative to asteroids during the period of HB’s Spring Foci, so the International Space Station – with respect to the artificial debris. Thus,

on March 12   (viz. at HB’s Focus T8 of March 13)  the ISS screw was evacuated in the Orbital module,


on March 24  (viz. at HB’s Focus T5 of March 24) the course of the ISS was changed with the aim to escape collision with a remainder of Chinese space rocket.

1.3.  Space  Dust

The Space dust plays a great part in the processes which exert influence on the Earth’s Magnetosphere, atmosphere and living matter. The Esotery gives probably even greater consideration to this factor by stating [5] that the heat that the Earth receives by radiation from the Sun is at the utmost one third if not less of the amount received by her directly from the meteors, and that meteoric dust (including the residues of burning of asteroids, such as 2008 TC3, above) has the direct influence upon the changes of temperature and the height of our atmosphere being increased or decreased.

To this end the fact of our Earth now passing through a region of space in which the increasing intensity of all forms of Cosmic rays is observed [4] is of great importance, as this, together with the increasing level of Space dust income benefits to climate change and shift in mentality since we may presume that the Cosmic rays act not less efficiently than the Solar activity [6], if even the HB’s Foci provoke such intense manifestations (See the Summary, below).

3.4. Economical collisions

Unprecedented measures of State and International control over the banks and economics that firstly have been undertaken at T7 are now developing over the Spring Foci.

The economic mortgage crisis reached a critical stage around September 2008.  In response to the developing crisis and  as a financial rescue plan, the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, or ‘bailout act’ for short, passed the US Senate in October 2008. The act authorized the United States Treasury Department to issue the amount of US$ 700 billion to be used to stimulate the US economy and save banks from bankruptcy. Similar actions were taken by other countries and many banks around the world were nationalized. While the number of foreclosures in the US sky-rocketed, factories were shut down and the unemployment rate exploded, the bankers continued to pet themselves on the back by allowing themselves huge bonuses for a job ‘well done’.  While Obama openly criticized this immoral behavior in the US (AIG and Fanny May bonuses) and took counter measures by means of taxation (90% on bonuses), in other countries bankers received milder criticism.  As a result the public opinion and public outrage over the handling of the economic crisis changed significantly leading to protests and riots at the G20 summit in London.  At the G20 summit, plans were made to restructure the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Financial Stability Forum (FSF) and the World Bank. Some of the international coordinated measures included control over hedge funds and banning on tax havens. UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced that an additional US$ 1.1 trillion dollar would be issued, largely benefited to the IMF, to stimulate the world economy. A Swiss banking scandal disclosed in a US lawsuit, called for the lifting of the Swiss bank secrecy laws. Liechtenstein and Andorra soon followed to announce that it will lift its bank secrecy laws and other countries like Austria and Luxembourg have announced to ‘relax’ banking secrecy. A remarkable turning point at this G20 meeting was that it was decided that the USA would lose its leading and dominating role in the G20.  At the same time the United Nations pledged for a new world reserve currency as a replacement for the US dollar. In an interview on March 12, Bilderberger chairman Etienne Davignon announced that the Bilderberger group at the summit in Athens in June 2009 will taker further actions to conquer the crisis. The Bilderberger conference could "improve understanding" on future action, in the same way it helped create the euro in the 1990s, he said. According to Davignon, the EU will meet with drastic changes and will never be the same after the global financial crisis started in September 2008.
