Indeed, I missed it ... but apparently I didn't miss much. Comet 252P/LINEAR, the brighter of two comets that passed us at the same time, never got brighter than magnitude 5.5 (barely naked eye, yet another of many binocular events). It was fading at magnitude 6 in late May and is now beyond human sight. The other comet, P/2016 BA14, was too small to be visible to the human eye, but still was the closest comet in 246 years.
The following articles from March 2016 elaborates further the event:
Green Comet Will Pass Near Earth—With a Twin -- A Rare Double Comet Is Buzzing By
"A rapidly brightening green comet is making a historically close encounter with Earth on Monday, March 21. And following right behind it like a tagalong sibling is a second, smaller comet. The green comet, named 252P/LINEAR, is passing within 3.2 million miles (5.2 million kilometers) of Earth—about 14 times farther than the moon. While this may not sound very close, it’s actually the fifth closest comet on record. And its trailing partner will come even closer, making it the third closest in recorded history ..."
"In late March, 2016, two small comets swept by Earth. One (P/2016 BA14) was the closest comet in 246 years, while the other (252P/LINEAR) was the 5th closest known comet in recorded history. The second comet moved into skies visible from the Northern Hemisphere in late March and early April, and many hoped it would become bright enough to be seen with the unaided eye. It has, but only barely. For the most part, it has remained an inconspicuous object in the predawn sky, visible to those who search with binoculars or telescopes ... This comet will remain in our sky through about June ..."
"Two comets are headed for a historic flyby of Earth this week, and you don't want to miss them. The bigger of the two bodies, known as 252P/LINEAR, is about 750 feet in size and surrounded by an emerald green cloud of gas. It is expected to make its closest approach to our planet on March 21 at 5:14 a.m. PDT. At that time, it will come within 3.3 million miles of Earth, or about 14 times farther from our planet than the moon on March 21. The next day, at 7:30 a.m. PDT, a second, smaller comet known as P/2016 BA14 will come even closer --flying within 2.2 million miles of our planet or 9.2 times farther from the Earth than the moon. That will make it the closest comet to fly past Earth since 1770, according to Sky & Telescope, and the second closest comet to zip past Earth in recorded history ...
It is extremely improbable that two totally independent comets would fly so close to Earth at almost the same time ... Although their orbits are not identical, they are close enough to suggest that they may be two pieces of the same comet that broke apart in the recent past."
Only two other comets are known to have come closer to Earth in recorded history. They are 55P/Tempel-Tuttle, believed to have passed at a distance of 2.1 million miles on October 26, 1366, and Lexell’s comet (D/1770 L1), which passed on July 1, 1770 and missed Earth by only 1.4 million miles.
But those were singular comet close passes. This was TWO!
OF COURSE, NOTHING HAPPENED. EARTH WAS NOT DESTROYED, NOR DID I EXPECT IT WOULD BE. THIS EVENT WAS SOMETHING THAT COULD DEFINITELY BE DISCUSSED LATER.
So, what makes this March event so important for us know about, especially after the fact?
First of all, what is important about this event is that it made history. There has never been two comets that passed earth this close at the same time.
Secondly, the question one must now pose is whether this was a foreshadowing of a major prophetic event to come soon or is it setting an historical base 7 precedent for such an event occurring in the spring of 2023?
What is the prophetic event in question?
The Warning: A worldwide warning is to be experienced by everyone on earth. Its purpose will be to call humanity to amend its behaviour and return to God.
The Miracle: A great miracle will occur in the late winter or early spring within one year after the warning.
Signs of the Miracle: Permanent signs of the miracle will remain for all time at a pine grove near Garabandal and other selected locations of Marian apparitions.
The Chastisement: A terrible chastisement will occur during which many will die. Other prophecies indicate that this chastisement will eliminate up to two-thirds of humanity.
Two of the girls, Conchita Gonzalez, now aged 67, and Jacinta Gonzales, also age 67, described the first supernatural event, The Warning, in a series of interviews:
"It is a phenomenon which will be seen and felt in all the world and everywhere; I have always given as an example that of two stars that collide. This phenomenon will not cause physical damage, but it will horrify us because at that very moment we will see our souls and the harm we have done. It will be as though we were in agony but we will not die by its effects but perhaps we will die of fright or shock to see ourselves. May the Virgin forgive me if I do not explain it the way it is, but I am trying to tell you ... after knowing what the Warning will be like that day."
"The Virgin told us that the Warning and Miracle will be the last warnings or public spectaculars that God will give us. This is why I believe that after them we will be near the end of time."
"To me, it's like two stars ... that crash and make a lot of noise and a lot of light but they don't fall... It's something that's not going to hurt us but we're going to see it. In that moment, we're going to see our conscience. You're going to see everything wrong that you're doing."
"The Warning is something that is first seen in the air everywhere in the world and immediately is transmitted into the interior of our souls. It will last for a very little time, but it will seem a very long time because of its effect within us. It will be for the good of our souls, in order to see in ourselves our conscience, the good and the bad that we've done. Then we'll feel a great love toward our heavenly parents and ask forgiveness for all our offences."
"CONDITIONS AT THEIR WORST": Jacinta Gonzales - April 1983
"The Virgin said that the Warning would come when conditions were at their worst. It wouldn't be just the persecution either because many people will no longer be practicing their religion."
One year later will then come The Miracle and a short time after, as little as several months or as long as a few years, a global holocaust called The Chastisement. It is unclear whether conditions of war will already be in progress at the time of The Warning.
Conchita Gonzalez says she will announce to the world the coming of The Miracle eight days before it happens. As to The Warning, only Mari-Loli knew the year, and knowledge of that died with her on April 20, 2009 when she succumbed to lupus at age 59.
So, two months ago on March 21, the unthinkable finally happened: two comets made history as the closest that two such bodies have ever passed the Earth within a period of 26 hours. One of them alone was the second closest comet in recorded history, the first being Lexell's in 1770. The other was the 5th closest in all history. Together they were the first event of their kind: an historical precedent.
Now that this event has taken place, some variation of it is free to occur again. When is impossible to say. Regardless of appearances there is no "date setting" on this or my other website. There are however, "windows of opportunity" made possible by the base 7 phenomenon of historical repetition that dominates time and space. Of course God can always set his own date for an event ... and it doesn't have to conform to the base 7 phenomenon.
Those who believe in the Garabandal warning should take note of the March 21-22 event ... for it may have been a preview of The Warning. Or, if you will, it may have been a warning about The Warning.
Next time around, the two comets that approach close to Earth may not simply pass our planet harmlessly within 26 hours of each other at distances of a few million miles ... next time they may be on a direct course to impact the earth or crash into each other high above in our heavens.
Although March 2023 is now a "window of opportunity" one would be ill-advised to keep eyes glued to that date only. It could happen next year or in 2018. Or it could happen in 2037. Or 2060. One Garabandal scholar believes "The Miracle" will occur in the spring of 2020. If he is right, the Warning might then occur in March or April 2019.
But whether one agrees or not, it very much appears we have been given a celestial warning ... about The Warning.
The Miracle follows within 12 months, leaving physical evidence of its appearance. What form The Miracle will take we do not know, but in 1971 Conchita did narrow the months down to March, April, or May, insisting that it will not occur in either February or June. That brings us then to a period that bottoms out around October/November for The Chastisement which will also come from outer space.
So, to summarize: The Warning may be a catastrophe from space that, at the last second, will miraculously terminate far enough away to spare this planet and its inhabitants (we hope). The Chastisement will be a catastrophe from space that will succeed in causing great destruction to earth and its inhabitants.
This will likely take the form of Planet X as it reaches it closest point to earth, a large celestial object also known by the ancient names of Nibiru and Marduk and the biblical prophetic name of Wormwood. Both will bring great terror as mankind watches and awaits.
And what is The Chastisement like?
What They Saw
At a certain time not a single motor is going to operate throughout the world, a terrible heat will come from the sky, and during this time of heat people will look for water and they will not be able to find it, and they are going to attempt to kill one another in their desperation ... But they will lose their strength and fall to the ground. Then it will be understood that it is God alone Who has permitted this. Then we saw a crowd in the midst of flames ... many people will hurl themselves into lakes and seas, but the water will boil and, instead of putting out the great fiery heat, it will excite the flames and make them even more intense ... the chastisement is more terrible than we can possibly imagine because it will come directly from the hand of God ...
This Marian prophecy was revealed over a number of years from 1973 to 1979 to the late Veronica Lueken during Rosary Vigils at the Vatican Pavilion Site in Flushing Meadows Park, New York. Here is a condensed version:
"My child and My children, do not be affrighted by My words. The world shall not come to an end. The Eternal Father has given His promise to mankind, that the world shall never be made extinct again, as in the past with the time of the floods. However, your world shall be cleansed with a 'baptism of fire'. Only a few, in the multitudes upon earth, shall be saved...
I have spoken to you of the BALL OF REDEMPTION to meet with much speculation from souls, I shall explain now, how this will come about: The ball will descend from the atmosphere of your earth: it will be from the heavens; it will not be man-made; it will be part of the universe.
YOU WILL BE PLANET STRUCK!
In this chastisement, My children, billions will be lost. Many lives will be lost. You bring upon yourself a punishment far greater than ever has been seen upon earth and never shall be seen again, for when you go through this chastisement, there will be few creatures left upon earth.
Can you not understand that when the Ball of Redemption is sent upon you three-quarters of your world shall be gone?"
Is the "Ball of Redemption" the recently-discovered "Planet Nine", now moving towards the sun and inner solar system in its highly elliptical, comet-like orbit, or a fiery brown dwarf star hurtling in our direction and as of yet unseen -- a sun that collapsed inwardly, a dark star that has tremendous gravitational influence on everything that it passes, a death star.
According to experts like Immanuel Velikovsky and Zecharia Sitchin, this object was once called Typhon, Marduk, Mazda, Shiva, Wotan, Nibiru, Pallas Athena, and many other names by the ancients during its last passage 3500 years ago in 1495 BC -- the time of Exodus:
Abraham Rockenbach's "De cometis tractus novus methodicus" (1602) --
In the year of the world 2453 (1495 BC) -- as many trustworthy authors, on the basis of many conjectures, have determined -- a comet appeared which Pliny also mentioned in his second book. It was fiery, of irregular circular form, with a wrapped head; it was in the shape of a globe and was of terrible aspect. It is said that King Typhon ruled at that time in Egypt ... Certain authorities assert that the comet was seen in Syria, Babylonia, India, in the sign of Capricorn, in the form of a disc, at the time when the children of Israel advanced from Egypt toward the Promised Land, led on their way by the pillar of cloud during the day and by the pillar of fire at night.
Pliny's "Natural History" --
A terrible comet was seen by the people of Ethiopia and Egypt, to which Typhon, the king of that period, gave his name; it had a fiery appearance and was twisted like a coil, and it was very grim to behold: it was not really a star so much as what might be called a ball of fire.
According to the calculations of Velikovsky and Sitchin, it must return again sometime between 2005 and 2105. When it does, it will come close to earth, causing it to stop in its rotation for three days. Then, in the space of one hour, the earth will shift 90 degrees. During that one hour billions will die. Estimates are that as few as 600,000,000 people will survive.
