The Next Tunguska Event or Chelyabinsk: As Powerful or Catastrophic in Comparison?
The distance from 1908 to 2013 was considerable: 105 years. Yet it seems doubtful the next similar event will be another century away. It seems that close encounters with PHAs (Potentially Hazardous Asteroids) has increased since the start of the new millennium, and while every seven years seems perhaps too short a distance, it may be one we need to watch. Also, in the late 70's and 80's we saw a strange but different event happen in Russia and the United States seven years apart: a nuclear power plant disaster in each (1979, 1986). Also the US pace station Skylab fell to earth in 1979 and was followed by the Russian Mir 22 years later in 2001 (almost happened in 2000, making it a 21 year event). Thus, it is possible that in 2020 the US will experience its own Chelyabinsk event unless it happens again in Russia or elsewhere.
Most likely this will occur as a shock out of the blue and without any anticipation. Then again, it may be preceded by angst created by news reports indicating a probable impact, instead to manifest itself as an atmospheric explosion similar to Chelyabinsk. The event may also signal the pending death of Pope Francis later in the year if he visits Iraq.
One other worry we can not ever rule out: the next Tunguska or Chelyabinsk could well be the Warning of two stars crashing given at Garabandal in 1963 and also prophesied by Nostradamus in 1555:
After the collision of two great stars which will occur between April and March:
Oh, what a loss, but two great good influences by land and sea will help on all sides.
There will be first a World-Wide Warning that will happen in the sky everywhere in the world and is immediately transmitted into the interior of our souls. It will frighten all humanity regardless of where one happens to be at the time and it will be a thousand times worse than earthquakes. It would be like fire. It will not burn our flesh, but we will feel it bodily and interiorly. It will last a very little time, although to us it will seem to be a very long time because of its effect within us. The Warning appears like two stars -- that crash and make a lot of noise, and a lot of light -- but they don't fall. No one can prevent it from happening. It will be recognized as coming from God and will resemble a punishment, but it is meant to be a purification. It will not kill us, but if we die it will be caused by the emotion within us.
THE YUSHU METEOR OR QINGHAI EVENT
A suspected low-flying meteor has lit up the sky in northwestern China's Yushu City on December 23. Video from the event in the city in China’s Qinghai Province showed a bright fireball streaking across and lighting the dark sky.

On March 21, 2021, Earth will have its closest encounter with 2001 FO32 — the largest and fastest-known asteroid scheduled to fly past our planet this year. The space rock, estimated to be between 2,526 feet ( 0.47 miles) and 5,577 feet (1.05 miles) in diameter, will zip past Earth at a staggering speed of 76,980 miles per hour (123,887 km/h). To put it in perspective, that is about 100 times faster than the speed of sound!
It’s undeniable: 2020 was a pretty rocky year and, despite some glimmers of hope, 2021 hasn’t started out much better. We’re still locked down in the middle of a global pandemic, the government is more focused on cracking down on activists than solving the climate crisis they’re protesting, and – according to NASA – a Potentially Hazardous Asteroid is set to pass uncomfortably close to Earth.
The largest asteroid expected to make a close pass of Earth in 2021 will arrive in late March, coming within roughly 1.2 million miles of our planet. The rock, called 2001 FO32, is considered by NASA to be a “potentially hazardous asteroid” due to its habit of coming relatively close to our planet. The object measures somewhere between a half-mile and a mile wide, which would certainly cause some very serious problems if it were to impact Earth.
Asteroid 'Potentially Hazardous': Asteroid Measuring More Than 1,000m in Diameter Will Pass by Earth in March
A massive space rock about a kilometre wide is expected to whistle past Earth next month. Designated 231937 (2001 FO32), the asteroid should pass us on 21 March, as it cruises through the solar system at a speed of about 34.4 km/s (that's about 123,000 km/h), according to the Daily Express.
The largest asteroid to fly past the Earth this year is set to make a close approach to our planet on March 21. Known as 2001 FO32, the asteroid is an enormous rock which is classified as a near-Earth object (NEO) and it is orbiting the Sun in close proximity to the Earth.
On March 21, the largest known asteroid to fly past Earth in 2021 will make a close approach to our planet. The enormous space rock—known as 2001 FO32—is one of numerous "near-Earth objects," or NEOs, that orbit the sun in our cosmic neighborhood.
The biggest-known asteroid slated to whiz by Earth this year will make its approach on March 21. As far as size goes, this little fella is bigger than about 97% of asteroids in our solar system, but it’s still pretty small when compared to the largest asteroids out there, according to spacereference.org.
The asteroid ‘2009 JF1’ has been considered by NASA as “potentially dangerous”. The North American space agency, which has a list of space rocks at risk of colliding with Earth, has announced a date for the impact of this asteroid: 8.34am on May 6, 2022.
A fireball that lit up UK skies on Sunday night is thought to be a small piece of an asteroid that entered the Earth's atmosphere, according to scientists.

BASE 7 ALERT: Wuhan Coronavirus Pandemic: The Asian Flu Revisited
New diseases used as weapons will cause 25 million people to die.
Before long all will be set in order, we will expect a very sinister century, the state of the masked
and solitary ones much changed, few will be found who want to be in their place.
The current Coronavirus pandemic that broke out at the start of 2020 may be a more deadly mathematical repeat of the 1957-58 Asian Flu, one of three deadly 20th Century flues which included the 1918 Pandemic that killed millions worldwide. It is important to cover this as a prediction still because what is not yet known is the course it will run.
That is where this alert takes on importance:
This Asian-born pandemic may mutate over the summer and become especially virulent and even more deadly in the autumn and cause the most deaths between December 2020 and March 2021, but only if it follows the same path as The Asian Flu.
It means we may have to contend with this disease for at least another year and that it will get much worse than it is now, if that can be believed.
To healthy people who have been hoarding various goods and seeking a test to confirm a negative result for coronavirus, hoping then to wait it out: WHAT GOOD IS BEING TESTED NEGATIVE NOW THEN RACING BACK TO YOUR WELL-STOCKED HOME GOING TO DO YOU? YOU CAN'T HIDE IN YOUR HOMES FOR A YEAR AND A HALF!! I DON'T BELIEVE THIS VIRUS IS GOING AWAY IN THREE WEEKS!
We also still must contend with what could be a second plague beginning late this year or early in 2021: an Ebola Pandemic.
Prediction: Coronavirus may only be the first of several deadly pandemics to come over the next several years. In 2021 exists the danger of an especially horrific outbreak of EBOLA actually becoming a pandemic, much worse than anything imaginable in 2014. Nostradamus specifically warns us of this "African pestilence" being brought to Europe and other countries in ships. Perhaps cruise ships like the recent Diamond Princess. Perhaps infected refugees seeking asylum by sea. We must evaluate what prophecy says.
Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.65 ~
The park inclined, great calamity,
Throughout America and Italy it will be:
The fire in the ship, pestilence and captivity, Mercury in Sagittarius, Saturn warning.
Could it be that Francis will no longer be pope later this year or early next?
It is indeed possible that these diseases were created in laboratories for biological warfare! It is also possible they can be transmitted from space to our planet via a weapons satellite or a germ warfare space station.
AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas is lifting its mask mandate, Gov. Greg Abbott said Tuesday, making it the largest state to no longer require one of the most effective ways to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The announcement in Texas, where the virus has killed more than 43,000 people, rattled doctors and big city leaders who said they are now bracing for another deadly resurgence.
MISSION, Kan. (AP) — With the U.S. vaccination drive picking up speed and a third formula on the way, states eager to reopen for business are easing coronavirus restrictions despite warnings from health experts that the outbreak is far from over and that moving too quickly could prolong the misery.
Federal officials are expressing worry that the decline in daily new coronavirus cases nationwide is starting to flatten as one of the variants, from the U.K., is on the rise. They warned states against relaxing COVID-19 restrictions, saying the nation remains at a precarious point that could tip into a fourth surge before more people get vaccinated.
A coronavirus variant that probably emerged in May and surged to become the dominant strain in California not only spreads more readily than its predecessors but also evades antibodies generated by COVID-19 vaccines or prior infection and is associated with severe illness and death, researchers said.
WASHINGTON, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Americans may still need to wear masks in 2022 even as the country relaxes other restrictions to combat COVID-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, said on Sunday.
German Health Minister Jens Spahn urged caution on Sunday in the face of rising coronavirus infection numbers, just as schools across the country prepare to reopen. "The virus isn't making it easy for us," Spahn told German broadcaster ARD.
Coronavirus cases in Italy are on the rise again, in large part due to the more infectious British variant, a top virologist warned in a newspaper interview published Sunday. His comments came as Italians in several cities ignored official appeals to stay at home to go out and enjoy the unusually mild weather over the weekend.
As Covid-19 cases fall and vaccines roll out across the country, a handful of governors have dropped statewide mask mandates, raising tensions with some city leaders who are keeping their own restrictions in place to fight new strains of the coronavirus.
The summer of 2021 is shaping up to be historic. After months of soaring deaths and infections, COVID-19 cases across the United States are declining even more sharply than experts anticipated. This is expected to continue, and rates of serious illness and death will plummet even faster than cases, as high-risk populations are vaccinated.
Amid the dire Covid warnings, one crucial fact has been largely ignored: Cases are down 77% over the past six weeks. If a medication slashed cases by 77%, we’d call it a miracle pill. Why is the number of cases plummeting much faster than experts predicted?
The number of new cases of Covid-19 reported worldwide fell by 16 percent last week to 2.7 million, the World Health Organization said. The number of new deaths reported also fell 10 percent week-on-week, to 81,000, the WHO said late Tuesday in its weekly epidemiological update, using figures up to Sunday.
(Bloomberg) -- Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations are dropping dramatically across the U.S., suggesting that measures to interrupt transmission are working, at least for now. More than 27.7 million Americans have tested positive among at least 83 million believed to have been infected.
Top members of President Joe Biden’s COVID response team are warning internally that the U.S. may not reach herd immunity until Thanksgiving or even the start of winter—months later than originally calculated—according to two senior administration officials.

The coronavirus variant that shut down much of the United Kingdom is spreading rapidly across the United States, outcompeting other mutant strains and doubling its prevalence among confirmed infections every week and a half, according to new research made public Sunday.
When will life return to normal? In 7 years at today's vaccine rates -- In Canada it's going to take more than 10 years at this rate
When will the pandemic end? It’s the question hanging over just about everything since COVID-19 took over the world last year. The answer can be measured in vaccinations. Bloomberg has built the biggest database of COVID-19 shots given around the world, with more than 119 million doses administered worldwide. U.S. science officials such as Anthony Fauci have suggested it will take 70 per cent to 85 per cent coverage of the population for things to return to normal.
SANTA ANA (CBSLA) – A 60-year-old Orange County man died after receiving a second dose of the coronavirus vaccine. Now investigators are trying to determine if the vaccination played any role in his death. Hours after getting his second Pfizer dose on January 5, Tim Zook was in the emergency room of the hospital where he worked.
The United States started 2021 with the deadliest month of the coronavirus pandemic to date. January’s death toll has already surpassed the previous record number of fatalities set in December, when over 77,400 people in the U.S. died of Covid-19, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The pandemic has taken more than 79,200 lives so far this month, according to the data.
The biggest shock to the global economy in a century is mutating—literally. More-transmissible and potentially deadlier variants of Covid-19 first identified in Britain, South Africa and Brazil are spreading, just as the rollout of vaccines had raised hopes for a broad-based economic recovery.
As the coronavirus tears across much of Texas, Dr. Esmaeil Porsa is grappling with one of the most formidable challenges he has faced: The Houston hospital system he operates is running out of vaccines.
NEW YORK — There’s no end in sight to our long national nightmare. The arrival of a COVID-19 vaccine was supposed to usher in the final battle in our war against coronavirus. That’s what Gov. Andrew Cuomo and others had been telling us for weeks. This was going to be the last push. We could finally begin to think about life returning to normal. Not so fast, America.
(Bloomberg) -- The U.K.’s third coronavirus lockdown looks set to endure as the government warned it’s too early to contemplate easing restrictions. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Priti Patel did not repeat previous assurances that the U.K. will be getting back to normal by April, even as the mass vaccination program continued to expand to reach 5 million people.
When Washington, D.C., enters its next phase of vaccine distribution in February, all residents who are smokers, have asthma, suffer from high blood pressure, are obese, or possess a wide range of other health conditions will be permitted to get the jab.
In LA, ambulances circle for hours and ICUs are full. Is this what Covid-19 has in store for the rest of the country?
LOS ANGELES — The situation here is dire. Every minute, 10 people test positive for Covid-19. Every eight minutes, someone dies.

Emergency room nurses have more patients than they can handle — sometimes six at a time.
President-elect Joe Biden plans to use FEMA and the National Guard to build coronavirus vaccine clinics across the United States, according to new details of his Covid-19 vaccination plan released by his transition team on Friday.
The onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic, which has left nearly two million people dead, has seen Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh worshippers seek solace in prayer. With places of worship often closed and mass gatherings banned for fear of fanning infections, believers are turning to religious leaders, or to the heavens for answers.
The CEO of Covid-19 vaccine maker Moderna warned Wednesday that the coronavirus that has brought world economies to a standstill and overwhelmed hospitals will be around “forever.” Public health officials and infectious disease experts have said there is a high likelihood that Covid-19 will become an endemic disease, meaning it will become present in communities at all times.
As the British coronavirus variant occupies countries' pandemic plans due to its increased transmissibility, other mutations to the Sars-CoV-2 are provoking concern among scientists who are scrambling to work out if they will still respond to vaccines. In particular, one mutation, known as E484K, detected initially in South Africa and on subsequent variants in Brazil and Japan, has raised alarm among researchers.
Researchers in Ohio said Wednesday that they’ve discovered two new variants of the coronavirus that likely originated in the U.S. — one of which quickly became the dominant strain in Columbus, Ohio, over a three-week period in late December and early January.
MASK UP Brits could wear Covid face masks FOREVER as coronavirus will ‘always be with us’, warns JVT
BRITS could be wearing face masks forever as Covid-19 will "always be with us", England's deputy chief medical officer told The Sun today. Professor Jonathan Van-Tam said the pandemic has changed how Brits approach hygiene and that some habits that we have adopted still stay with us.
BORING, Ore. (AP) — A line formed out the door during the lunch rush at the Carver Hangar, a family-owned restaurant and sports bar, and waitresses zipped in and out of the kitchen trying to keep up with orders as customers backed up in the lobby.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ambulances waited hours for openings to offload coronavirus patients. Overflow patients were moved to hospital hallways and gift shops, even a cafeteria. Refrigerated trucks were on standby, ready to store the dead.
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- More people without underlying conditions are dying from COVID-19 in Los Angeles County, officials said citing recent data. During a New Year's Eve virtual briefing, County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said that 86% of people who died from COVID in 2020 had underlying conditions.
As health officials in the United States announced a second and possibly a third person infected with a new, more transmissible strain of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, infectious diseases experts are feeling a sense of déjà vu all over again.
Dr. Fauci now claims it will take up to 90% immunity across the US to end pandemic and has been 'moving the goal posts' as COVID becomes 'more transmissible' - while THREE super-strains are discovered overseas and CDC predicts up to 420K deaths by mid-January
Dr Anthony Fauci now says it could take up to 90 percent herd immunity across the United States to end the COVID-19 pandemic as three mutant strains of the virus are discovered and the CDC predicts up to 420K deaths by mid-January. Despite initially saying herd immunity could be reached at between 60 to 70 percent, Fauci believes it may now take closer to 90 percent in order for life to return to normal.
December Is Now the Deadliest Month of the Pandemic -- With days left to go in the month, the number of deaths reported passed April’s high

South Africa sees a record 14,000 new Covid cases while deaths climb pass 400 for the first time in months amid 'exponential' spread of new mutant strain now detected in Britain
South Africa has reported a record number of coronavirus cases in a single day, driven by a new 'more infectious' variant that has already been found in the UK. The country logged more than 14,000 cases on Wednesday, its highest total of the pandemic so far, while deaths topped 400 for the first time since August 5.
The chief scientific adviser for Operation Warp Speed said the frequency of allergic reactions to the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine is higher than what would be expected for other jabs, according to a report.
Nearly 4 in 10 Americans do not want to take the Covid vaccine. HHS is planning to spend $250 million to convince the U.S. it is safe
The U.S. began vaccinating the population against the coronavirus last week, but mass adoption is not a guarantee. Nearly 4 in 10 Americans say they would “definitely” or “probably” not get a vaccine, according to a Pew Research Center survey of 12,648 U.S. adults from Nov. 18 to 29.
UK bans all arrivals from SA where highly contagious Covid mutant is driving massive second wave among young people
Britain tonight banned all arrivals from South Africa, as well as travel to the nation, after discovering two cases of a mutant Covid-19 strain which is driving a massive second wave among young people in the country. The new mutant, called 501.V2, was announced in Cape Town last Friday and is believed to be a more extreme variant than Britain's new Covid strain which has plunged millions into miserable Christmas lockdowns.
Two cases of a new, "more transmissible" COVID-19 variant linked to South Africa have been identified in the UK, the health secretary has said. Both cases are contacts of people who travelled from South Africa over the last few weeks, Matt Hancock said at a Downing Street news conference.
As dozens of countries blocked the flow of people and goods from Britain to avoid a new and more contagious strain of coronavirus, scientists raced to understand how it emerged and the scope of its threat.
‘CAN’T KEEP IT OUT’ Supercharged mutant Covid strain is ‘probably already in the US and may even have started here’, scientists warn
THE mutant strain of the coronavirus detected in Britain could already be circulating in the US and may even have originated in the country, scientists have said. The new strain, thought to be up to 70 per cent more infectious than the original, was first detected in London earlier this month and has now been identified in at least six other territories around the world.
U.S. life expectancy inched up last year but in 2020 could decline by the largest amount since World War II, as Covid-19 becomes the nation’s third-leading cause of death.
NEW YORK (AP) — This is the deadliest year in U.S. history, with deaths expected to top 3 million for the first time — due mainly to the coronavirus pandemic. Final mortality data for this year will not be available for months. But preliminary numbers suggest that the United States is on track to see more than 3.2 million deaths this year, or at least 400,000 more than in 2019.

"Vaccines and vaccination will add a major, major, powerful tool to the toolkit that we have. But by themselves they will not do the job."

NATO Forces Move Into Central and Eastern Europe AND the Middle East
NATO mobilizes to protect Eastern Fringe against Russia. US-Led NATO Air War in the Middle East against Iran and Iranian Allies in Iraq and Syria.
It was my opinion on January 11, 2013, that NATO would enter the Syrian Civil War in March 2013 if chemical weapons were used by Assad. I projected the first use would occur in March 2013. First reports that chemicals were used came as predicted on March 19 after 25 people died and more than 110 others were injured in the town of Khan al-Asal in Aleppo. Sarin was the suspected agent. Assad blamed rebels for the chemical rocket attacks. The claim of chemical weapons being used could not be confirmed. Five months later, on August 21, 2013, 1,300 Syrian civilians died from sarin nerve gas outside of Damascus; another 3,600 fell seriously ill. NATO debated. The United Nations debated. The US debated. However, a NATO or even a US retaliation or air war failed to materialize. One of the greatest blunders of the Obama presidency was his unwillingness to act or rally support from NATO allies to end the conflict in the same manner as Bill Clinton mobilized NATO to end the war in Kosovo in 1999. US retaliation against Syria came late, not until the US missile strike on Shayrat Airbase on April 7, 2017. At that time, under President Donald Trump, the US officially entered the war in Syria.
So we once again find ourselves wondering if NATO will be rallied to enter the escalating hostilities in the Middle East being fueled by Iran on two fronts: one against Saudi Arabia and the United States in the Persian Gulf and Iraq and the other against Israel, with air attacks against the Jewish state being conducted by Iranian troops and proxies in Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. It would require a dangerous escalation of conflicts with Iran in the region to bring about a NATO intervention. This almost occurred in early January when Trump ordered a missile strike against Iranian positions in Iraq, killing Qassem Soleimani the Head of Iran’s Elite Military Force. Iran retaliated five days later with missile attacks at US bases in Iraq. The crisis appeared that it would escalate into full-scale war, but Iran and the US both stepped down from further actions.
Almost anything could renew such tensions once again as air attacks happen on a fairly regular basis with Israel and in Iran's proxy war with Saudi Arabia in Yemen. Greece is already involved as it is arming Saudi Arabia with US Patriot missiles to be used against Iran. Iran has threatened Athens over this deployment. An unexpected development could occur as well: a few weeks ago Russian and US forces faced off when Russia attempted to capture a key Syrian oil field. Thus, we could see a US-Russian war suddenly materialize in the Middle East, pulling various countries in as allies on either side. That would almost assuredly pull in the NATO alliance. So might an all-out Arab-Israeli war the likes not seen since October 1973.
Why would NATO go to war in Eastern Europe this year? It is possible that Russia will invade another Eastern European country like it did Ukraine in 2014. Any nation that is restive with mass protests or revolution are possible targets. Currently, Serbia is one of these as protests in that country have been ongoing almost perpetually since 2017.
But if base 7 trends regarding the second war in Chechnya (1999-2000) hold true, Russia will wage a larger war with a country it has already invaded and waged war in in recent years. That could either be Georgia or Ukraine. Georgia is not on the current timeline, but will be in 2022. Ukraine, however, is, although 2021 would appear to be the actual year. But a repeat of the February 2014 invasion could certainly happen six to eight months early in 2020.
The overall target dating for NATO war in Europe is very soon: March 2020. But for the Middle East it is only a month later: April 2020.
If the current period of historical correction continues, these events may be stalled until May/June 2022.
Flood everything, to the Razée (Shaven Female) loss, theft of the wall, death, of all goods abundance:
Escape by mantle uncovered, new & old will be turned luck.
Base 7 dating: March 2020. This is NOW!
I can't specify what the danger is, but this is the base 7 anniversary of the attempted suicide of Sinéad O'Connor ... the most famous shaven-headed pop singer of all time. It was March 1999, a drug overdose. 21 years later and she has not only made great strides resurrecting her career, but is on TIME Magazine's cover for the 100 most influential women of the last century ... a major honor. I have always felt Nostradamus was writing about her, as Razée is spelled with a capital "R" (rendering "Shaven Female" or "Shaven Lady").
What is more he says she is wearing a "mantle" ... that is pretty close from his 16th Century perspective for the hijab which Sinéad has worn since converting to Islam. Who escapes is unclear, but if it is Sinéad she does so by removing the hijab to escape detection.
The danger appears to be linked to some natural disaster, a flood, which seems unlikely right now, but not later this spring. However there are ominous words included: "theft" (indicating another person is involved in whatever it is) and "death." Furthermore, who escapes and who dies is unclear. Thus, it does not appear to be suicide that threatens Sinéad, but murder ... and the murderer a thief.
It is not the first time a female star has been threatened or murdered by a thief: it happened 14 years ago when a thief named Diego Pillco murdered Indie film actress and director Adrienne Shelly. During a bungled burglary in her working studio apartment at Greenwich Village he was caught and confronted by the actress. During the ensuing argument, Pillco knocked her out, dragged her unconscious into the bathroom, and hanged her from a shower rod, making it appear to be a suicide. For a week that is what the media reported her death as being until police discovered sneaker prints in the bathtub.
Perhaps though this time around it is the bungling thief who is killed ... it is hard to say as the wording is, as often, cryptic.
There are two other base 7 anniversaries to beware: November 2036 and August 2038.
The Nothing Compares 2U singer sparked worries over her mental health and safety, after she expressed suicidal thoughts in a tweet shared on Sunday. The 53-year-old has since returned to Twitter, saying that she ‘lost the plot’.
Sinéad O'Connor will enter a year-long treatment program for trauma and addiction and has postponed her 2021 shows in order to do so, O'Connor announced.
Sinéad O'Connor has postponed her 2021 tour in order to enter a year-long treatment programme for trauma and addiction. Writing on Twitter, O'Connor said that 2020 had been the culmination of six years of suffering. She had this year become addicted to "a drug other than weed", which she has used for 34 years, after being profoundly affected by the death of "someone beloved".
Troubled singer Sinead O'Connor is taking a break from performing as she goes into a year-long rehabilitation programme. The Irish star, 53, told her fans she had to postpone gigs scheduled for 2021. She added: 'If I take this time to heal, I will be fit for a lifetime of touring.
A fabulous Sinead O'Connor mural in Dublin has gone viral, and it's easy to see why. Ireland's most brilliantly sorrowful singer, coupled with the heartbreaking notion of lamenting the loss of Ireland's most celebrated and (in)famous of pastimes, and the cold, hard fact that - simply put - nothing compares to the pub with yer pals.
Nothing compares to the mural-making talents of Dublin artist Emmalene Blake and we've made no secret of being fans of her previous works. Last week Emmalene showcased this brilliant Back to the Future piece and she's previously paid tribute in Tallaght to the likes of Tia and Tamera and Ariana Grande.
"Seven years before the Last Day the sea shall submerge Ireland in one inundation."
Presage 101 by Nostradamus may be about Sinead and others escaping this apocalyptic deluge.
Thousands Die When Massive Earthquake Devastates Sicily; Many More Missing, Injured, Dead from Tsunami
This will be a total seismic event. Not only will there be a powerful earthquake in April 2020, more powerful than the 7.1 that devastated the island in 1908, but the quake may also trigger a killer tsunami. The death toll could reach well into the thousands, with up to hal a million injured, missing, and homeless.
Two moderate earthquakes (the largest magnitude 4.8) occurred in Sicily in December 2018, set off by the rumbling eruption of Mt. Etna. Etna is one of the world's most active volcanoes and erupts a few times a year annually. A major earthquake nearby need not be linked to Etna, however. Mount Etna is one of the volcanoes Edgar Cayce warned would erupt massively prior to a future mega-earthquake in California.
1908 Messina earthquake
The base 7 precedent for this event is the 1908 Messina earthquake (also known as the 1908 Messina and Reggio earthquake) which occurred on December 28 in Sicily and Calabria, southern Italy with a magnitude of 7.1. The cities of Messina and Reggio were almost completely destroyed and between 75,000 and 82,000 lives were lost.
ROME (AP) — Mount Etna, Europe’s most active volcano, has awed even seasoned volcanologists in recent days with spectacular spurts of lava lighting up the Sicilian sky each night. The nearby Catania Airport closed temporarily, and residents of the town of Pedara said it appeared one day last week as if it were raining rocks as a thick blanket of ash covered the town.
PEDARA, Sicily -- Residents and municipal teams worked Wednesday to clean up a Sicilian village near Mount Etna after Europe’s most active volcano spewed lava, ashes and volcanic stones.
MULTIPLE earthquakes have hit Mount Etna as the volcano continues to see a flurry of activity. Etna, the highest and most active volcano in Europe, has been erupting spectacularly over the past few days. Images have shown lava oozing out of vents, while others show “fireworks” of explosions.
Europe’s largest active volcano has sent lava flowing towards the Valle del Bove after sudden activity. Two powerful lava arms emerged from the largest of Italy’s three active volcanoes, the Ingv of Catania reported.
Two Spectacular Comets For 2020
There is only one precedent for this double event: the spectacular appearance of Comet Arend-Roland in April and May of 1957 and the unexpected arrival of Comet Mrkos in August 1957. There have been no repeats of this phenomenon, not in 1964, 1971, 1978, 1985, 1992, 1999, or 2006. However, in 2013, there was a possibility of two bright comets during the same year: Comet PanSTARRS and Comet ISON, the latter being promoted as a possible "great comet."
PanSTARRS performed very well for southern hemisphere viewers, an extremely bright and dazzling comet if you lived in New Zealand or Australia. However, it did not perform as well as it was expected to in northern skies. Being a wintry March that year in many US states, the skies were often overcast and impossible to view anything. Besides it was only at magnitude +3.5 for those who could see. And when it was supposedly "visible" at +3.5, many would-be comet watchers reportedly just couldn't see it even when they were looking in the right part of the sky. When the comet reached its brightest, +1.0 magnitude rather than the much brighter anticipated -4.0, it was on the horizon and too close to sunset to really make out for most people. So it was something of a fizzle for northern viewers.
So here we are in 2020, seven years later, nothing in the news indicating any surprise comets coming our way, nothing by astronomers expected for the entire year. Still, the event of 1957 is likely to repeat again some day as 2013 almost demonstrated.
So we wait for the unlikely but not impossible this coming year: April 2020 and August 2020, with a conditional vector due to the influence of Comet ISON for the second surprise comet to arrive instead in November or December 2020, remaining visible into January or February 2021.
COMET F3 NEOWISE
May 16, 2020: It will approach to Sun down to 0.3 a.u. on July 3, and it is expected to brighten up to 2.5 mag ... In the Northern Hemisphere, it is not observable now. It will appear in the evening sky at 3-4 mag in mid July (Northern Hemisphere), then it stays observable while getting fainter.
June 11, 2020: Yet another fizzle. Peak magnitude, despite optimistic projects, was never better than 5.2 ... very faint, and that was in the southern hemisphere. Frankly, I'm perplexed. There is a pandemic reminiscent of the 1957-58 Asian Flu raging this year. COVID-19 began being reported before I had a chance to warn we would be repeating the 1957 killer virus. Still, it is a repeat. And one of the other major events of that year was the double, cosmic spectacular of Comet Arend-Roland in April and May of 1957 and the unexpected arrival of Comet Mrkos in August 1957. They didn't fizzle, why did Atlas and Swan? Of course, there is still NEOWISE F3, but trying to get information or reports on it is like yanking teeth ... it's as if the search engines are conspiring to hide it. Or maybe astronomers are afraid it will fizzle too, so they are keeping it under wraps until late June (as it is supposed to blaze in at magnitude 2.5 in early July).
NEOWISE is still in the southern hemisphere, but not for long. Beginning on July 6 and it should enter the northern hemisphere and be seen above the northeastern horizon before dawn. Depending on which source you believe, it should either be holding at magnitude 2 or 3 OR may be as bright as magnitude 0.8. 0.8 is VERY BRIGHT. We will see.
There are also reports that NEOWISE has developed a second tail (like Hale-Bopp did in 1997).
I have not seen it. The weather has been intolerable here with index temp values of 100 F. due to the heat wave. I have no air conditioning and live in an upstairs apartment. Comets have not been a major priority. Besides even on clear days, there's been a lot of cloud activity around dusk and dawn and now the thunderstorms and rains will move in to cool things down. Not good comet-viewing weather. Hopefully in a few days the skies will be clear and I can try to find it at last light. But the media and amateur astronomers, and the public, say it all whether I actually see it or not. One comet down and one to go!
It's actually the brightest comet in 23 years, since Comet Hale-Bopp in 1997, according to NASA. Soon it will be seen in the northwestern sky after sunset, and it will appear to zoom just below the Big Dipper.
To see the comet, start looking about one hour after sunset, when you’ll find it just over the northwest horizon as the last of twilight fades into darkness, according to Sky & Telescope. Look about three fists below the “bowl” of the Big Dipper, which is hanging by its handle high above, and perhaps a little to the right, the website said.
July 24, 2020: Comet NEOWISE is now being classified as a "typical naked-eye comet," but not a "great comet." Its magnitude is between 1 and 2 (but already beginning to fade). Compare that to Hale-Bopp in 1997, which reached magnitude -1. That's nearly THREE magnitudes BRIGHTER, which made it an EASY naked-eye object. You didn't have to search for it, in other words, even in a partially cloudy sky ... IT FOUND YOU. No visible Northern Hemisphere comet has performed like that ever since, including NEOWISE. And some astronomers argue that even Hale-Bopp was not a "great comet" but that the last one was Comet West in 1976 (44 years ago) ... a comet few saw because it got next to no reporting by the news media: a result of the great disappointment a few years earlier when Comet Kohoutek, which had the makings of a "great comet", fizzled.
Comet McNaught of 2007 and Comet Lovejoy of 2011 were both great comets. Unfortunately, they were seen mainly from Earth’s Southern Hemisphere.
When I post predictions for major naked-eye comets, I am writing to the Northern Hemisphere audience, because it is our part of the world that has been getting passed over time and again from seeing naked-eye comets during this century, whether "typical comets" or "great comets." The last "typical comet" I saw in the northern hemisphere with my own eyes, without binoculars, was Comet Holmes in autumn 2007. But I still had to use binoculars to make sure that the faint, fuzzy ball I saw was indeed a comet. The skies were clear, which helped a lot, I was in the outskirts, and light pollution wasn't nearly as bad as it is today. Even though it was only magnitude 3, it was high in the sky near the constellation Perseus. Comets that well-placed are easier to see even if they are faint.
Where I live it has been a largely muggy, rainy mess weather-wise day after day, night after night, with lots of clouds, and on the few clearer, drier days, cloud formations hugging the northwest sky at sunset. I give up ... I'll never see this comet however many millions saw it in other parts of the United States. The only way I'll see one around here is if it is AT LEAST as bright as Hale-Bopp was.
A typical comet!
How bright is Comet NEOWISE? In early July, reports began indicating that Comet NEOWISE has a visual magnitude between 1 and 2. If you know the magnitude scale, where smaller numbers indicate brighter objects, that may sound very bright! However, stars are pinpoints of light, whereas the light of comets is diffuse (spread out). So, for comets, a magnitude of 1 or 2 is fainter than it would be for a star of equal magnitude. The reason is, the comet’s light is distributed over a relatively wide area, instead being concentrated in a single point.
Is Comet NEOWISE a great comet? There’s no strict definition for great comet, but most agree that Hale-Bopp – widely seen by people in 1997 – was one. NEOWISE is nowhere near as bright as Hale-Bopp was. Unlike Hale-Bopp, NEOWISE will never be easily visible to the eye. So it’s not a great comet.
Bright generally means as bright as Venus or brighter. Hale-Bopp was not quite that bright. Some great comets are visible in daylight, but Hale-Bopp was not.
Finally, probably, we have to concede that Hale-Bopp straddles the edge of greatness.
There is certainly a recent trend towards the Southern Hemisphere for great comets. The data reveal that the long-term trend for both the Southern and Northern Hemispheres is a great comet every 25 to 40 years.
But, if you discount Hale-Bopp, then the last great comet for the Northern Hemisphere was Comet West, 44 years ago. Even if you consider Hale-Bopp as great, 23 years have passed.
A new comet is on its way in toward the sun, with prospects that it may become bright enough to see with the unaided eye by year's end. The object in question is Comet Leonard, catalogued C/2021 A1 and was discovered by astronomer Gregory J. Leonard on Jan. 3 at the Mount Lemmon Observatory, also known as the Mount Lemmon Infrared Observatory.
Officially named C/2021 A1, Leonard is one of the most promising space snowballs of this young year. Comet Leonard was discovered by its namesake Greg Leonard, a senior research specialist at the University of Arizona, via the Mount Lemmon Observatory on Jan. 3.
Should We Get Ready For Another Naked-Eye ‘Comet Of The Century?’ ‘Comet Leonard’ Just Appeared From Nowhere
Hot on the heels of last summer’s Comet NEOWISE it’s looking like the northern hemisphere might just get another bright comet in 2021. Discovered last week, new images of Comet Leonard appear to show the dusty visitor to the Solar System already has a bright nucleus and a tail.
Exciting news! A newly found comet might become 2021’s brightest comet. Astronomer Greg Leonard discovered the comet that now bears his name – C/2021 A1 (Leonard) – on January 3, 2021 at the Mount Lemmon Observatory in Arizona. Astronomers report that discovery images show a tail for the comet, suggesting we might see a nice tail as Comet Leonard draws closer to the Earth and sun. The comet is still far away ...
This week it's the peak of the Perseid meteor shower, that time of the year when a lot of stargazers in the northern hemisphere get outside hoping for "shooting stars." In 2020 the Perseids peak on the nights of Tuesday, August 11 into Wednesday, August 12, and Wednesday, August 12 into Thursday, August 13.
If you're yet to find Comet NEOWISE with your own eyes you're leaving it really late. Now well past its best, the icy intruder from the outer Solar System has been a sparkling sight in the night skies for the last month or so. However, it is still visible.
Comet NEOWISE has turned out to be the most photogenic since Comet Hale-Bopp in 1997, but if you're having trouble finding it with your naked eyes, you're not alone. No matter how many star-charts you consult, finding this icy visitor from the outer Solar System is not as easy as it should be.
The brightest comet to appear in Northern Hemisphere skies in nearly a quarter of a century will soon be ending its run as a naked-eye object. Comet NEOWISE (aka C/2020 F3) was discovered on March 27 by astronomers during the NEOWISE mission, which used NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) space telescope to look for near-Earth objects, like asteroids and comets.
If you want to find it the old-fashioned way, just orient yourself to face the northwest and look for the Big Dipper. Neowise should appear below the bottom left corner of the Big Dipper's bowl, just above the horizon. As the comet moves away from Earth, it will move closer to the constellation Leo.
CLOSE MANSFIELD - Skywatchers should be able to catch a glimpse of the recently discovered Comet NEOWISE for the rest of July. Dan Everly, the president of Warren Rupp Obseveratory, has been monitoring the comet's progress. "In a telescope you can see one heck of a nice tail on it," he said.
Comet NEOWISE has been entertaining space enthusiasts across the Northern Hemisphere. Although its official name is C/2020 F3, the comet has been dubbed NEOWISE after the Near-Earth Object Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) space telescope that first noticed it earlier this year.
Comet Neowise is the brightest space iceball to fly by Earth since at least 1997, NASA says, and it's been putting on a show in the evening sky, sending hopeful astrophotographers out into the dark.
MARYLAND - The recently discovered comet Neowise, the brightest to appear in a quarter-century, will be visible in the skies above Maryland for the next couple of weeks. Catch it now, because it's not due to return for 6,800 years.
MELBOURNE, Fla. - Sky-gazers are marveling, getting a glimpse of a comet that won't come our way for another 7,000 years. What You Need To Know Comet NEOWISE can be seen pre-dawn, post-sunset Comet is bright enough to see with the naked eye, says professor Many are getting the experience of a lifetime, like Florida Tech senior astronomy and physics major Maria Galvez.
If urban light pollution a problem where you live, you may have a difficult time spotting the comet with your eyes, but if you have a pair of binoculars you should be able to see it. Virtual Comet Viewing From Chabot Space & Science Center Chabot Space & Science Center will hold a virtual presentation and Q&A featuring comet NEOWISE at 8 p.m.
An amazing comet that thrilled early-morning stargazers earlier this month is now visible in the evening sky, and it's a sight you won't want to miss. After all, this comet won't be back for 6,800 years, NASA says. Comet NEOWISE can now be seen just after sunset for observers in the Northern Hemisphere, according to NASA.
These stunning pictures captured Comet Neowise soaring through the sky. Here's how you can see it for yourself
A three-mile wide comet named "NEOWISE" has lit up the skies, wowing people across the globe.
"The early reviews are in," Space.com said. "Comet Neowise is a hit." Neowise is one of the few comets visible to the unaided eye this century. The best days to view the comet during the evening will come during the July 14-19 time frame.
The early reviews are in: Comet NEOWISE is a hit! Those who have gotten up before sunrise to gaze into the twilight skies have been greeted by the best comet performance for Northern Hemisphere observers since the 1997 appearance of Comet Hale-Bopp. Indeed, NEOWISE (catalogued C/2020 F3), emphatically ended the nearly quarter-century lack of spectacular comets.
For not the first time in 2020, space enthusiasts are getting excited about a comet. Only this time, the comet is not breaking hearts by fading before it can be seen with the naked eye. Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE -- or, simply, Comet NEOWISE -- made its closest approach to the sun on July 3.

A newly-discovered comet dubbed NEOWISE will be visible this week to the naked eye. It's the first visible comet of 2020.
TORONTO -- Early risers in the northern hemisphere will be treated to a view of a recently identified comet, which has suddenly become visible to the unaided eye, as it hurtles towards Earth. Comet NEOWISE - technically called C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) - was first discovered on March 27 by the Near Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) space telescope launched by NASA in 2009.
If you can wake up (very) early in the morning, you have a chance to see a rare celestial event with the naked eye. Over the past few days, the " surprise" comet Neowise, and its brilliant tail, has become visible in the Bay Area just before sunrise.
Utah's early risers may have noticed a special visual surprise near the northern horizon in the form of a comet. While you were setting off fireworks, the comet NEOWISE was trying to hold it together and survive its closest encounter with the sun on July 3.

Comet Neowise may light up skies in July enabling skygazers to watch spectacle with naked eyes, predict experts
Space enthusiasts are in for a treat this July. A comet named Neowise is likely to light up the skies as it moves toward the sun. And astronomers predict that people might be able to view the space object with naked eyes. Currently, the comet is about 220,868,305 kilometers away from the Earth.
A recently discovered comet known as NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) is speeding towards the sun in its orbit around our star, and some astronomers are predicting it may become visible to the naked eye by early July.
This year has seen two comets making their way through the solar system, only to disintegrate as they approached the Sun. Comet ATLAS and Comet SWAN made headlines this year as astronomers spotted the bright space rocks making their way towards the Sun.
I don't expect you to believe me at this point, but there is another newly discovered comet that has the potential to put on quite a show in the next few weeks. Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE (or just Neowise, for short) is the third comet this year to be discovered by astronomers, who say it could become visible to the naked eye and perhaps be even brighter.
Astronomers confirmed that the comet known as SWAN is dying Comet SWAN's brightness decreased after it flew close to the Sun Despite the comet's decreased brightness, its tail is still visible Astronomers observing the comet known as SWAN confirmed that the icy cosmic object is dying.
Here's how, where, and when to see the new bright comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) in the sky in 2020. Although three promising comets - 2I/Borisov, C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS), and C/2020 F8 (SWAN) - have already disintegrated this year, observers can hope for a positive outcome for another bright comet - NEOWISE (C/2020 F3).
Newly discovered Comet SWAN is now VISIBLE from Earth, but facing fight for its life as it nears the Sun
Astronomers keeping a close eye on the newly discovered Comet SWAN have discovered that it faces a fight for survival as it nears the Sun. But it's good news for skywatchers, as the space rock is more beautiful than before.
It's been a busy spring for skywatchers in Arizona. There have been supermoons, meteor showers, and highly visible flyovers by the International Space Station taking place in the heavens. Now, the cosmos has gifted us with the chance to have a cometary encounter between now and the end of the month.
Rise an hour before the Sun on Monday, look low on the northeast horizon, use binoculars, be patient. That's how you'll see Comet SWAN-the probable "comet the year"-which is now visible from the northern hemisphere low in the northeast just as nautical dawn is beginning.
Comet Swan has already passed Earth by, but its journey toward the sun could make it more spectacular. It's the latest comet teasing skywatchers with its magnificent tail, which is some 10 million miles (16 million kilometers) long. Comet Atlas seemed to be a big deal earlier this year before it broke up and fizzled out.
Keen amateur stargazers are in for a treat from tonight as a recently discovered comet comes into view. Comet Swan boasts an 11 million mile-long and will be visible to everyone without the need for expensive equipment.
The comets "Swan" (C / 2020 F8) and "Neowise" (C / 2020 F3) are the new hopes of the comet watchers: will they become visible to the naked eye? The comets "Swan" (C / 2020 F8) and "Neowise" (C / 2020 F3) are the new hopes of the comet watchers: will they become visible to the naked eye?
COMET C/2020 F3
May reach magnitude 2.5 or 3, perihelion on July 3, 2020
I visually observed the comet prior to moonrise using a pair of 25x100mm binoculars and estimated it at magnitude 10.0. The comet is well on track to reaching naked eye visibility during July.
Southern Comets Homepage on Facebook
May 6, 2020: Yet another recent comet discovery has bright prospects. Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) was found in March by NASA's NEOWISE project, the asteroid-hunting division of the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission. It currently glows at magnitude 11 with a strongly condensed coma 5' across. The new object is scooting north from Lepus into Orion and only visible in the Southern Hemisphere for the moment. It will disappear in the solar glare in early June and then return to the dawn sky in Auriga for Northern Hemisphere observers in July. Although the comet will remain low in morning twilight, it's expected to reach magnitude 3 or 3.5 by mid-July as it works its way from Lynx to Ursa Major.
Submission Statement: "Newly discovered comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE is projected to cross the ecliptic plane in late June, one month after the tails of ATLAS and SWAN might cross, possibly scattering debris across the ecliptic plane."
"How does it interact with the remnants of the other two comets? Your guess is as good as mine."
"Meanwhile, the rich are flying to New Zealand in their private jets, to hide in their bunkers."
It's looking to be a season for comets teasing skywatchers with their magnificent tails. Comet Atlas seemed to be a big deal earlier this year before it broke up and fizzled out. But just as that promising space snowball was cracking up, Comet C/2020 F8 Swan was discovered in late March.
Astronomers monitoring Comet C/2020 F8 (SWAN) spotted a powerful outburst from the comet on May 5. Such outbursts usually indicate a fragmentation, but scientists are hopeful that this could just be a volatile comet. The comet is approaching Earth an...
It's looking to be a season for comets teasing skywatchers with their magnificent tails like elusive cosmic peacocks. Comet Atlas seemed to be a big deal earlier this year before it broke up and fizzled out. But just as that promising space snowball was cracking up, Comet C/2020 F8 SWAN was discovered in late March.
Comet Atlas is no more-but Comet Swan appears ready to takeover the title of "best naked eye comet of 2020." The Hubble Space Telescope this week published these images, which appear to show Comet Atlas breaking apart into more than two dozen chunks: So it seems that Comet Atlas-officially known as C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS)-is no more.
(Image: © NASA/ESA/Ye (UMD)) Skywatchers had high hopes that a comet called ATLAS would light up the night sky this spring, with forecasts suggesting it could become bright enough to see with the unaided eye. Instead, the icy object crumbled to pieces - but it's still putting on a spectacular show for scientists.
Just before the calendar flipped over to 2020, Comet ATLAS appeared and began to surprise astronomers by how quickly it was brightening. While cautious with projections, some scientists said ATLAS could become visible to the naked eye. That assessment was encouraged in part by it taking the same orbit as the Great Comet of 1844.
At the moment a promising comet is fading, a newly discovered cosmic snowball has been spotted in an outburst phase, giving us a bright new distraction from dark days here on planet Earth.
Comet ATLAS was discovered due to its increasing brightness Astronomers confirmed that ATLAS has started to break apart The comet might completely break apart before reaching the Sun Astronomers from different parts of the world have confirmed that the comet flying towards Earth has started to break apart.
Comet Atlas has the potential to put on one of the best shows by a melting space snowball in years, but there's some early indications that it might be breaking up early and cruising towards a spectacular fizzling instead.
Comet ATLAS probably won't be visible from Earth with the naked eye now as astronomers think it's disintegrating
The comet C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS) has been fading in brightness in the past few days as it approaches the sun, sparking concerns that it could be disintegrating. The object, which was only discovered on December 29, 2019, has garnered a lot of attention recently, with many in the astronomy community hoping that it would become the brightest comet for more than 20 years.
Comet ATLAS was first discovered in December 2019 The comet will approach Earth in May Astronomers believe the comet is fragmenting Astronomers revealed that the massive comet that's approaching Earth might be breaking apart. According to their data, the comet, which could be bright enough to be spotted by the human eye, is starting to fade.
A sky show may just be the thing we need in a few weeks and Comet Atlas is expected to deliver.
A massive comet which is about half the size of the sun, will be visible in the skies above England this month. Comet Atlas, which is five times the size of Jupiter, will be visible from Earth throughout April. By the end of the month, it should appear in the sky brighter than Venus.
If you're a fan of stargazing, make sure you keep an eye to the skies this month. An enormous green comet is brightening rapidly, and could become visible to the naked eye by the end of April. The comet, called Atlas, was first discovered back in December, and is roughly five times the size of Jupiter.
A comet speeding towards the inner solar system could become one of the brightest objects in the night sky, promising the most dramatic display of its kind in decades. Astronomers believe that Comet Atlas, which in one month has grown 4,000 times brighter than when it was first spotted, has the potential to become "the comet of a generation" if it maintains its composition.
Comet Atlas is racing toward the inner solar system, and it could become the brightest comet seen in the night sky in over two decades. The comet, discovered by an observatory designed to protect Earth from asteroids, may even be visible during the day just two months from now.
A newly discovered comet known as C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS) is making its way toward our sun and is rapidly increasing in brightness. Astronomers spotted the comet on December 28, 2019, using the ATLAS (Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System) robotic astronomical survey system in Hawaii, hence the name.
War in Kashmir
India and Pakistan have fought two major wars on the current timeline: one in December 1971 and the other in May-July 1999 (28, 4 x 7, years apart). The highest casualties that resulted from any of the military confrontations fought between India and Pakistan, including one in 1947 and another in 1965, occurred during the brief 1971 war. As in 1971, it seems likely that Pakistan will launch the opening attack using its air forces, probably in Kashmir and perhaps also in other places. As was the case in 1999, the danger of conflict turning into a mutual nuclear holocaust between both nations is even greater now than in the past.
Ironically, with all eyes on the Middle East, especially Iran, Iraq, Syria, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, threats from North Korea and China, protests continuing in Serbia (since 2017), and fighting continuing in eastern Ukraine (since 2014), it may well be that a back door to World War III will be opened in South-Central Asia, with India and Pakistan fighting a full scale war over Kashmir, one that turns nuclear. In little time China, Afghanistan and North Korea would side with Pakistan and Russia or the US (or both) would side with India. I suppose that is the only good news: most likely Russia and the US would be allies in such a war and not adversaries. But the Chinese and North Korean nuclear arsenals would cause horrific damage to both countries all the same.
If the current period of historical correction continues, this event may be stalled until July 2022.
A Pakistani soldier was killed in border clashes with Indian forces in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir on Thursday, Pakistan’s military has said. The soldier was killed in Satwal sector on the Pakistani side of the Line of Control (LoC), the de facto border that divides Kashmir into two parts controlled by Pakistan and India.
A civilian has been killed and three others wounded by Indian shelling in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, Pakistan’s military has said. A 50-year-old woman died and the other civilians – including a four-year-old child – were wounded in the incidents in the Tatta Pani and Jandrot areas on Tuesday, as tensions remained high between the South Asian neighbours in the disputed region.
Islamabad, Pakistan – Two Pakistani soldiers were killed in an exchange of fire with Indian troops at the heavily militarised Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed mountainous territory of Kashmir, Pakistan’s military said.
Ahead of the sixth phase of the District Development Council elections in Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistani troops Saturday carried out “intense” mortar shelling along the Line of Control in Poonch district’s Balakot.
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan said Wednesday that two of its soldiers had been killed in "intense" military clashes with India in disputed Kashmir. In a late-night statement, military spokesman Major General Babar Iftikhar accused Indian forces of initiating the fighting in violation of a cease-fire on the so-called Line of Control, which splits Kashmir between the two nuclear-armed rival countries.
T HE "LINE OF CONTROL" ( Lo C) that wends across the rugged valleys of the former princely state of Jammu & Kashmir is something of a bellwether. It marks the spot Indian and Pakistani forces had reached when they agreed on a ceasefire in their war over Kashmir in 1948.
ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN - Pakistan and rival India say fierce military clashes across their frontier in disputed Kashmir have killed at least 13 people and wounded many more on both sides, with each country accusing the other of initiating the fight.

Indian and Pakistani troops in disputed Kashmir are engaged in their most frequent cross-border fighting for at least two years, official data shows, even as the nuclear-armed rivals battle surging coronavirus outbreaks. Indian Army data reviewed by Reuters news agency shows 411 ceasefire violations by Pakistan's military in March, the highest number in a single month since at least 2018.
Nine rebels and an Indian soldier have been killed in two separate gun battles in the disputed Kashmir region, an Indian army official has said. Indian soldiers killed five suspected fighters along the highly militarised de facto front line in Keran sector on Sunday as an armed group infiltrated from the Pakistani side of Kashmir into the Indian-administered part, said Colonel Rajesh Kalia, an Indian army spokesman.
Second Korean War Becomes
"Half World War"

The "Great City" of the United States (NYC) will be destroyed by rockets, and the West Coast will be invaded by Asians, but they will be beaten back ... Immediately the revenge comes across the large water. However, the yellow dragon invades Alaska and Canada simultaneously ...
After combat and naval battle, the great Neptune at his highest belfry: The Red adversary

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may order an invasion of South Korea and Japan, launching missiles at Seoul and Tokyo. South Korea, Japan, and the US may respond by sending naval and air forces to the region. The US would probably launch a number of SLBMs at North Korea, possibly nuclear-armed ones, destroying Pyongyang and other cities. Because of this, China and possibly Russia would then enter the war as an ally of North Korea. Needless to say, if China enters the war it will also overrun Taiwan and the Spratly islands currently in dispute.

Angelique is also a first name similar to Angela and Angelina (possible female president?).
The June 2020 dating may be further altered by my March 2016 prediction of an invasion of South Korea happening by November 2017 that seemingly "failed" but is actually still tardy by 2 years and 2 months (and counting a few months more possibly). In that particular scenario, the precedent was established by the North Korean artillery attack on Yeonpyeong Island in November 2010, seven years earlier. I had accurately predicted the 2010 attack on the island back in November 2008.
Thus, this projected June 2020 event could occur as early as January 2020.
Hopefully this period of base 7 correction will stall such a war until either March or August 2022 ... if it happens at all.
Once again, it being the 70th anniversary of the Korean War this year must not be overlooked, even if nothing (hopefully) should come of it.

Domestic and international pressures resulting from the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) requirement to affirm its internal dictatorship, subordinate Asian countries and supplant the global authority of the United States, are creating conditions for kinetic conflict.

Husband and Wife Death: A Murder-Suicide
or an Accident?
This is a different timeline Kennedy appears in, one in which the wife, and possibly other family members, dies with her husband. For major male celebrities, this has only happened twice in recent memory: in 1978 and again in 1999 ... 21 (3 x 7) years apart. The next vector should be July 2020.
The first case involved Hollywood legend Gig Young and his new wife, 31-year-old German magazine editor Kim Schmidt. On October 19, 1978, three weeks after his marriage to Schmidt, the couple were found dead. Police surmised that Young shot his wife and then himself. The murder-suicide was carried out with a Smith & Wesson .38-calibre revolver. Young shot his wife through the head and then shot himself through the roof of his mouth in what appeared to be a suicide pact. After an investigation, police stated Young had acted on the spur of the moment and his actions were not planned. His motive remains unclear.
21 years later famed financier and magazine publisher John F. Kennedy Jr., son of the assassinated US president, was killed on the night of July 16, 1999, along with his wife Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and sister-in-law Lauren Bessette when his plane inexplicably nosedived into the cold Atlantic waters off the coast of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The National Transportation Safety Board determined that the crash probably happened after Kennedy, who was inexperienced at flying his plane alone at night, became disoriented in haze.
Some conspiracy theorists claim the accident was a murder. One recent Facebook post declared "JFK Jr was declared the frontrunner for the NY Senate seat in 1999. Days later his plane crashed, making Hillary Clinton the newly elected senator." This statement has since been labeled "false" by PolitiFact although the murder conspiracy theory was treated quite seriously in the book JFK JR Murdered: Cover-up & Conspiracy to Kill JFK Jr. by Paul Dawson (2017).
In any event, between the suicide-murder of Gig Young and Kim Schmidt or the plane crash that killed JFK Jr. and his wife and sister-in-law, we have two possible scenarios for July 2020 (or April 2020 if three months earlier than July 1999 since July 1999 was three months earlier than October 1978). Another murder-suicide of a major male celebrity and his wife, one or both who may be an actor or a pop singer. OR a horrific accident of some kind, plane or car crash, that kills a major male celebrity and his wife and possibly other family members or friends.
There is a third possibility: something that is different from the other two. One of course would be an actor and his wife both being murdered by some person or group. Or it might be another suicide pact, but one not using a gun but by some other means such as hanging. There are no clues of any kind who might be in danger: this is a one time repeater of 1978 and 1999 with a likely 2020 repeat. The link is the death of the spouse.
Other male actors (relatively minor male celebrities compared to Gig Young and JFK Jr) who shot themselves on this same timeline:
One thing that is disturbing here is that his girlfriend Dianne Ray was in the home at the time. Given how close 1971 was to 1978 (Gig Young) in the timeline, one might wonder how closely a murder-suicide was when Duel shot himself. The entire incident is odd anyway, similar to the 1959 suicide of Superman actor George Reeves.
Actor Benjamin Hendrickson (second from top right) played the role of Harold "Hal" Munson Jr., the Chief of Detectives for the mythical town of Oakdale in the daytime soap series As The World Turns for many years. He committed suicide by shooting himself in the head on July 3, 2006, at the age of 55. He had reportedly suffered from depression, and was also filming scenes revolving around the death of his TV daughter Jennifer Munson (played by Jennifer Ferrin) at the time he took his life.
Actor Lee Thompson Young (top right) is best remembered for his role as the title character on the Disney Channel television series The Famous Jett Jackson and as Chris Comer in the movie Friday Night Lights. His last starring role was as Boston police detective Barry Frost on the TNT police drama series Rizzoli & Isles. On August 19, 2013, Young failed to show up to film an episode of Rizzoli & Isles. Police were called to do a well-being check on him at his Los Angeles apartment, where he was found dead. His manager stated that the actor had committed suicide. Police confirmed the cause of death as a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Young, 29, had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, for which he had been taking medication, and had been suffering from depression before his death.
He was best known for his role as the boyish rock music reporter Todd Stities in the NBC sitcom Suddenly Susan. On March 20, 1999, Strickland and comedian Andy Dick flew from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and spent three days partying in strip clubs.
After checking into Room 20 of the Oasis Motel, Strickland spent time with a prostitute, consumed six bottles of beer, hanged himself with a bed sheet over the ceiling beam, and died during the morning hours of March 22, 1999.
His body was discovered by a private investigator hired by his friend and co-star Brooke Shields when Strickland missed his appearance in Los Angeles Municipal Court for cocaine possession. Evidence of drug use was found in his room. The Clark County Coroner concluded that Strickland's body bore the marks of a previous suicide attempt.
Key clues: major actor, major male celebrity, murder-suicide, suicide pact, plane crash, accident, spouse, wife, sister-in-law, girlfriend, suicide of minor actor, TV actor, gun, shooting, hanging.
ACTOR HAGEN MILLS SUICIDE FOLLOWS ATTEMPTED MURDER OF GIRLFRIEND ERICA PRICE
Before actor Hagen Mills died by suicide on May 19, 2020, he attempted to shoot Erica Price, the mother of their 4-year-old daughter, Mila, according to the Mayfield Police Department. When officers responded to 911 call around 5:45 p.m. local time on Tuesday, they found Price with gunshot wounds to her arm and chest.

Reality Star, Minor Actress, Model or Singer Found Hanged: La selva dei suicidi
What is an example of major female star? Think in terms of Naomi Watts or Angelina Jolie. Lois Hamilton was not a major star nor were the next ones to be discussed linked to this timeline of misfortune.
The current dating suggests July 2020 as each time it has occurred a month to a few months earlier every seven years. Likewise, if there is a second victim, as there was in 2013, that one could occur in September 2020. Looking at the one-for-one in 1999 and 2006, and the double tragedy in 2013, it would appear that in 2020 there will be two deaths again (or more).
There is a 50% chance that in 2020 there will be a murder made to look like a suicide as was the case with victim #2 in 2006, Adrienne Shelly (or at least a reasonably believable allegation of murder) regardless if there is also a second female celeb who commits suicide that year. The murder made to look like suicide, if it happens, would likely occur in the autumn.
There is a 1 in 4 chance one of the victims will be "sort of well-known," although not a megastar or an icon.
If the victim turns out to be someone extremely famous, it will be a FIRST for this event-timeline.
In an attempt to cover up what he thought was an accidental death after he knocked her out during a botched burglary and resulting argument, Diego Pilco dragged her unconscious body into the bathroom and hanged her, still alive, from a shower rod.
The hanging, of course, did kill her.
Was Shelly actually a famous celebrity? She could have been had she not been murdered:
The death of Adrienne Shelly came right when the career of this talented actress appeared to be off and running. Fans of her early work with director Hal Hartley had already discovered her talent in his films, The Unbelievable Truth and Trust, and had watched her do equally compelling work with other directors.
So no, super famous she was not. Apparently not very much at all. And that makes it hard to predict ahead danger to an actor or actress, singer, or whoever when it is someone you have never heard of or you have but any impression they may have made is marginal to say the least.
Pointless to try? Probably, but the base 7 phenomenon is proven every time an event is repeated, regardless of magnitude ... and regardless of whether the event is predicted/anticipated by someone or not. It will most likely happen anyway. And if enough of these happen perhaps one day enough data will be compiled to actually prevent these events from happening anymore in the future. Sort of like Minority Report (2002).
Two Gias: Gia #1
Seven years later in 2013 there were TWO deaths by hanging of starlets. Starlet was the term used in the past to describe a minor film actress and could also apply to a minor recording star with only one or two hit songs. BOTH of these victims shared the same first name: Gia.
One of these cases was extremely WEIRD.
In Dante's time most suicides were committed by hanging and the branch of a tree often used as a gallows. For Dante, the trees symbolize the state of mind in which suicide is committed. Gia Allemand may have been conveying the idea of suicide on Twitter with her ghostly image of trees. The message also suggests that it may have been someone else's dream (wish) that she commit suicide ... a kind of hypnotic suggestion by a psychic assassin. We have absolutely no idea how many people who commit suicide do so because a long dormant program implanted in their brains has been triggered by some form of autosuggestion or telepathic suggestion.
"Offering," in this context, and most contexts of the Bible, means "sacrifice," whether an animal sacrifice or a human sacrifice. Using Proverbs 21:3 may have been a coded cry for help, or at least understanding, that if she was to die from what was perceived to be an apparent suicide, that it would not have really been a suicide. It would have been an offering ... a human sacrifice ... with Gia an unwilling victim. If so, she likely knew about the dark forces stalking her and their intentions. By using this proverb she may have been pleading to her killers to "do what is right and fair" and not to make a sacrifice of her. Had she lived, she might have exposed these Illuminati assassins as did Tila Tequila who survived her "suicide."
There is a continuity of theme in many base 7 events. Often elements found to exist in one case take on a more powerful meaning the next time an event is repeated. This La selva dei suicidi theme may indicate the next victim or victims of this timeline of suicide will be found hanging in woods near their home(s) or in a large forest (even the Forest of Suicides in Japan).
NOTE: It may have already happened to a male reality TV star. Love Island’s Mike Thalassitis was found hanged in a wood at a North London park on March 16, 2019, a victim of suicide.
'Love Island' star Mike Thalassitis' official cause of death has been revealed as suicide by hanging after the young reality TV star passed away at the age of 26 on Friday. Thalassitis was discovered dead in a woodland close to his home in Essex on Saturday.
A vigil was held in the park where Mike Thalassitis died, a week after the Love Island star took his own life.
Less than two months later American-born and British-raised actress Jiah Khan, age 25, was found hanged in her home. There is the repeat of the name Gia (Allemand) but this time spelled Jiah. She was the niece of Pakistani actresses Sangeeta and Kaveeta.
Suspicion fell on the boyfriend actor Sooraj Pancholi. At first it could not be proven and a ruling of suicide was upheld. However in January 2017, nearly four years after her death, the prosecution requested that charges of sexual assault and murder be laid against Pancholi. On 31 January 31, 2018, nearly five years after her death, a court in Mumbai charged Sooraj Pancholi with abetting Khan's suicide. The CBI submitted a list of 69 witnesses, including Khan's mother Rabia, the complainant, with the case that finally began in March 2019. The case continues with Sooraj out on bail and about to star in a new film. Thus, no resolution yet in the case of Jiah Khan as a seventh year approaches.
The other trend is a building one thus far: one victim in December 1999 (age 56), one victim in November 2006 (age 40), two victims in August and October 2013 (ages 29 and 25). Thus, there may be two victims in 2020, one or both with some degree of fame or a great deal of fame. Either or both may be very young, teens or 20s, unless the ever younger trend is only a coincidence, then any ages may be involved, 25 to 56. Maybe one of the two will be even older than 20s for the first time. It is also possible there may be more than two ... four if there is a doubling. Months to watch out for: July and September.
PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULFILLED
Love Island presenter Caroline died at the age of 40 in February after taking her own life. The beloved TV star was due to face trial last month after pleading not guilty to assault following an incident with her boyfriend Lewis Burton. Caroline was subjected to abuse from social media trolls in the months before her untimely death.
CAROLINE Flack died after being found hanged at her London home, an inquest heard today. The Love Island star, 40, was tragically discovered by a friend at her flat in Stoke Newington on Saturday. An inquest into her death at Poplar Coroner's Court heard police attended after being flagged down near the property and gave CPR at the scene in a desperate bid to save her.
An inquest into Caroline Flack's death heard on Wednesday how the former 'Love Island' host was found hanged at her home in east London. The British TV presenter was found dead in her apartment last Saturday. This was just a day after she learned that the CPS was pursuing the court case against her, Metro reports.
LONDON (Reuters) - British television presenter Caroline Flack, a former host of the hit show "Love Island", was found hanged in her London home and paramedics were unable to revive her, an inquest heard on Wednesday. News of her death on Saturday has revived a debate about the conduct of tabloid media, which had published an avalanche of stories about her troubled private life.
Third Major Israeli Conflict in Lebanon
Arab-Israeli War With Jordan and Syria also Possible
Israel has already clashed with Hezbollah in Lebanon twice in September and October 2019 as part of its conflict with Iran. Israel's war with Iran has turned Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian territory of Gaza into air strike zones because Iranian forces have taken up positions in those countries to launch missile and rocket attacks into the Golan Heights and northern Israel. The pro-Iranian Hezbollah in Lebanon have twice participated in Iran's air conflict by launching rockets at northern Israel in late 2019. Islamic Jihad in Gaza has also begun attacks on behalf of Iran this year (2020). As a result these countries, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and Gaza are called proxies because, officially, they are not in a state of war with Israel although they allow Iran to use their territory to launch attacks. Even so, the status of being a proxy staging ground or being a belligerent has gotten murky more than once. When Israel slams missiles into Damascus, it certainly looks like they are at war with Syria. One could say that for a day here or a day there ... they are. Likewise when a "stray" Syrian missile or rocket hits some part of northern Israel or the Golan.
In any event, a full-blown war in Lebanon like 1982 or 2006 has not happened again, although there have been a few close calls. In July 2020 that may change with Israel and Lebanon engaged in a third major war. Should that occur, regardless of whether or not the cause of the confrontation is actually Iranian provocation, Israel will no longer be involved in a proxy conflict that has thus far been largely defensive in nature and limited to retaliatory air strikes. It will be a total war between Israel and Lebanon involving complete mobilization of Israeli military in the air, on the ground, and at sea. Also, with the Jordan Valley on the table for possible annexation and Syria and Iranian proxies ready for direct combat in the Golan Heights, Lebanon may well be the trigger for an all-out ISRAELI WAR with SYRIA and JORDAN, as well as with IRAN and IRAQ.
In this period of flux (or historical correction), we may watch events unfold until as late as September 2022 before a major war breaks out in that region.
An Israeli drone crashed on Monday in southern Lebanon, with the Hezbollah terror group saying it shot it down. The Israel Defense Forces confirmed that one of its drones fell in Lebanese territory, but refrained from specifying the cause of the crash. “During operational activities by IDF troops on the Lebanese border, an IDF drone fell in Lebanese territory,” the military said in a statement.
In the wee hours of Christmas morning, I received a text message from a Lebanese Palestinian friend in Beirut, sent from the hallway of his apartment. He had run there after being jolted from his sleep by the sound of Israeli jets - later reported to be Israeli jets and/or missiles en route to targets in Syria - and the sensation that something in the vicinity was about to explode.
A powerful explosion shook a Hezbollah stronghold in southern Lebanon on Tuesday, sending thick grey smoke billowing over the village, but the cause was not clear. The Lebanese army said the blast occurred in a building in the southern village of Ain Qana, above the port city of Sidon, and that it was investigating.
Israel said it carried out air attacks on Hezbollah observation posts in Lebanon on Wednesday after shots were fired from across the border towards its troops the previous evening. The country's military had said earlier that a "security incident" was unfolding in the vicinity of Manara near the UN-demarcated Blue Line border between the two nations.
The Israeli military reported an unspecified "security incident" along the Lebanese border on Tuesday night, ordering residents of the surrounding area to remain in their homes. ( Update: Restrictions were lifted on Wednesday morning.)
Residents of some border communities instructed to remain locked-down and IDF spokesperson says some roads blocked to civilian traffic as troops conduct searches
The horrific August 4 blast in Beirut has exposed the rotting foundation of Lebanon's political system to the world. A nation stuck in a government-led Ponzi scheme and spiraling hyperinflation was dealt another blow after the massive explosion in the Port of Beirut. The Lebanese people have taken to
Hezbollah apparently planned to use the ammonium nitrate stockpile that caused a massive bast at Beirut's port this week against Israel in a "Third Lebanon War," according to an unsourced assessment publicized on Israel's Channel 13 Friday night.
The first Israeli Prime Minister has ordered the destruction of a Hizbollah weapons warehouse in Beirut with a new weapon. The weapon, which is not well known, caused considerable damage in the city, killing more than 100 people, injuring 5,000 and destroying many buildings. This time it will be difficult for Benjamin Netanyahu to deny it.
Lebanon's president said on Friday its investigation into the biggest blast in Beirut's history would examine whether it was caused by a bomb or other external interference, as residents sought to rebuild shattered homes and lives.
On Tuesday, in scenes described as "apocalyptic," an explosion ripped through Beirut, Lebanon. Terrifying video footage showed the catastrophic scene unfolding as black smoke plunged the disaster-struck city into darkness. At least 154 people have lost their lives with another 5,000 believed to be injured as international rescue teams continue to desperately search through the rubble of the port.
Police in the Lebanese capital of Beirut used tear gas on protesters who took to the streets Thursday night to demand accountability over the monstrous Tuesday explosion that killed at least 150 people and injured more than 5,000. Small fires were set in front of the main parliament hall and angry people threw rubble from the blast at police in riot gear.
Years before a devastating blast killed at least 100 people and injured more than 4,000 in Beirut Tuesday, a maritime analyst issued a public warning that a Russian "floating bomb" was languishing in the city's docks. Maritime monitoring systems tracked the Rhosus into port in Beirut in September 2013.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah threatened in the past to destroy Israel by causing a massive explosion in the port of Haifa using ammonia tanks that he said would be like a "nuclear" explosion. In addition Hezbollah allegedly sought to acquire ammonium nitrate via Syria since 2009 and tried to infiltrate the agriculture ministry in Lebanon to do so, according to leaked diplomatic cables.
BEIRUT (AP) - Residents of Beirut awoke to a scene of utter devastation on Wednesday, a day after a massive explosion at the port sent shock waves across the Lebanese capital, killing at least 100 people and wounding thousands. Smoke was still rising from the port, where huge mounds of grain gushed from hollowed-out silos.
Two enormous explosions devastated Beirut's port on Tuesday, leaving at least 73 people dead and thousands injured, shaking distant buildings and spreading panic and chaos across the Lebanese capital. Prime Minister Hassan Diab said that 2,750 tonnes of the agricultural fertiliser ammonium nitrate
On July 27, after a week of daily airstrikes attributed to Israel targeting several Iranian and Hezbollah interests in Syria, the Israeli military said a few of the Lebanese group's fighters crossed into the disputed Shebaa Farms area between Lebanon and Israel, triggering tensions on the border.
Israel's military says it has exchanged fire with gunmen linked to Lebanon's Hezbollah militant group. The incident on Monday afternoon represents an escalation of tension along the border shared by the two countries. According to the Israeli Defence Force (IDF), a "terror squad" crossed the UN administered Blue Line on northern border with on Monday afternoon.
Israeli forces said they exchanged fire with Hezbollah along the Israel-Lebanon border on Monday after the Iran-backed group staged an attack in a disputed region.
The Lebanese Army and Israeli occupation forces squared off yesterday along the border between the two countries. According to reports, two Israeli Merkava tanks were deployed to the border but remained on the "Israeli side" of the so-called Blue Line, representing the first time Israeli tanks crossed the fence since the 2006 war with Lebanon's Hezbollah movement.
Child Star Either Attempts or Commits Suicide
2006-07: Two notable attempted suicides
Seven years later, on November 12, 2006, six months after what would have been the May 2006 vector, former child star Lindsay Lohan ("Another World", The Parent Trap) reportedly attempted suicide by overdosing on a deadly cocktail of cocaine and painkillers. The following year, in May 2007, she attempted suicide by slitting her wrists.
2013: Another notable attempt
At this time I don't believe a new base 7 vector was created in 2015 ... Peterson's suicide was a late repeat for 2013.
Given events in 2006-07 and 2013, an attempt would normally be more likely. Unfortunately, former child star Demi Lovato (Barney & Friends) made a serious overdose suicide attempt on July 24, 2018 ... leaving open the high likelihood another child star may actually die in her place two years later in September 2020 (the same as Paris Jackson - Amanda Peterson above).
Unfortunately, 2018 was also the year for a Marilyn Monroe-Sharon Tate-Princess Diana (etc.) timeline of tragic death ... a timeline that was cheated when Demi Lovato ALMOST died from an overdose. That timeline NEVER gets cheated ... if someone survives a suicide attempt, someone else dies two years later. Thus was the case when actress Shelley Long survived a drug overdose suicide bid back in 2004 on the same timeline: two years later actress and indie filmmaker Adrienne Shelly was murdered ... hanged ... and it was made to appear to be a suicide.
Someone will likely take Lovato's place in September 2020. It will be a very major star ... and someone who may also be a former child star. That places former child star Britney Spears, who has a history of suicide attempts, very high on the list.
It's been more than 10 years since Britney Spears infamously shaved her head, and now a new documentary aims to provide context about why the pop star made that decision in 2007. "Britney Spears: Breaking Point" -- which aired on Channel 5 in the U.K.
DEMI LOVATO'S BEST FRIEND AND GLEE CO-STAR, NAYA RIVERA, DROWNS IN FREAK ACCIDENT
The circumstances of her death remain murky. She and her son rented a boat on July 7 and went out on a lake. The pair became missing on that date and the boat was not discovered until a few days later, with her small son, age 4, sleeping on board wearing a life jacket. First reports said that he got on the boat and his mother decided to stay in the lake to swim, after which she disappeared. Her life jacket was not used and still on the boat. Later, the reports said the boy claimed his mother "boosted him" on to the boat and he turned around to see her go under and drown. I suppose this will remain the official version: mother heroically saves son from drowning and in an exhausted state drowns. I find the two reports at odds as the boy appeared calm when first rescued and simply said his mother chose to remain in the water to swim but didn't return.
All the females on this timeline were former child stars who later attempted suicide or died of drugs overdose as adults. Dana Plato was first in 1999 and later former child star Amanda Peterson. Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears both attempted suicide, but failed, as did Paris Jackson. Last year child actress Mya-Lecia Naylor, age 16, hanged herself, apparently a year premature of this timeline. But technically she was still a child star, a child actress, and not a former child star who went on to act (or sing and perform) as an adult.
It would appear her name prefigured the identity of Naya Rivera: Naylor = Naya and Mya almost = Naya.
Also it appears that the link between Demi Lovato (who attempted suiccide in 2018) and the woman who would die in 2020 was NOT a name association as was the case between Shelley Long (2004) and Adrienne Shelly (2006). Instead, it was a personal association.
Demi Lovato is paying tribute to Naya Rivera. The "I Love Me" singer took to Instagram on Monday to share her memories of the late actress. "RIP Naya Rivera. I'll forever cherish the opportunity to play your girlfriend on Glee," Lovato wrote, alongside a slideshow of photos from their time together on the Fox dramedy.
Demi Lovato Will 'Forever Cherish' Starring as Naya Rivera's Girlfriend on 'Glee' Demi Lovato is reacting to the news that Naya Rivera has died after a six day search concluded today after she went missing. The 27-year-old singer posted a tribute...
She was NOT the major female film actress or royalty or pop singer or dancer/entertainer that could have been connected to Demi Lovato.
As a result, regarding the major actress who was to die tragically in 2018, and possibly two years later, I strongly suspect it WAS Margot Kidder. Kidder's death was first reported as natural causes but later revealed to be a suicide. However, a watch remains in effect for the Princess Diana-like actress Angelina Jolie or Donald Trump's "Marilyn Monroe" friend, Kim Kardashian.
Jessica Campbell, known for her spectacular performance in the 1999 film Election, was found dead in her bathroom. The actress passed away last month after she collapsed in the bathroom.

A body has been found at the Southern California lake where former "Glee" actress Naya Rivera disappeared, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office announced in a tweet Monday.
California authorities announced Monday that they are "confident" that a body they found at a California lake is that of missing actress Naya Rivera.

GLEE actress Naya Rivera is feared dead after going missing on a lake - with her four-year-old son Josey found asleep and alone on a rented boat. Authorities found the little boy shortly before 5pm on Wednesday at Lake Piru, Southern California, with sources telling TMZ he said that his mother had "jumped into the water but didn't come back up".
Naya Rivera has been a fixture on Entertainment Tonight throughout the years. The 33-year-old actress went missing on July 8, after taking a boat ride with her 4-year-old son, Josey, on California's Lake Piru. Though Josey was found safe on the boat, authorities have yet to find Rivera, who is presumed dead.
London - A young British actress who appeared alongside Tom Hanks and Halle Berry in "Cloud Atlas" accidentally ended her own life last April, an inquest by a coroner in London has ruled. Mya-Lecia Naylor died at age 16 due to "misadventure," the ruling reported by BBC News and The Guardian said.
The news of British teen actress Mya-Lecie Naylor's passing broke the hearts of fans and family alike. Now, a coroner has ruled that although she had hanged herself, the death was unintentional. Toby Watkin, the assistant coroner assigned to the case, concluded that Naylor's death was caused by "misadventure," meaning, essentially, that her suicide on April 7 was a mistake.
British actress Mya-Lecia Naylor, who hanged herself at the age of 16 earlier this year, did not mean to die, according to reports. The assistant coroner in the case, Toby Watkin, said Naylor's death was by "misadventure" and was not intentional, according to the Daily Mail.
Ali Khamenei's October Surprise: Iran Tests Its First Nuclear Device
China and North Korea both conducted their first nuclear test on the current timeline in October (China, 1964; North Korea, 2006). October 2020 should also be a first for another Asian country. That country is most likely to be Iran.
It is also possible that this will instead be the first use of a nuclear weapon by Iran rather than a publicly acknowledged test. They may already have them!
Iran has a big new rocket. And it could complicate efforts by the Biden administration to slow or reverse Iran’s work on nuclear weapons. The Iranian regime on Monday announced it had test-launched, for the first time, its Zuljanah space launch vehicle. “The test helped Iran to achieve its most powerful rocket engine,” Ahmad Hosseini, a spokesperson for the defense ministry in Tehran, told state media.
Iran tested a new rocket on Monday with improved technology that could be used in its missile program, its latest attempt to raise the stakes for the Biden administration ahead of potential negotiations over a new nuclear deal.
New Jonestown-Style Massacre Brings Mass Suicide Back Into Light
For years now, pollsters and demographers have been chronicling the decline of religion in America. And it's not just religious affiliation that's declining. Along with lower rates of church attendance, religious weddings and religious activities in the household are also waning.
I have little doubt that if they called on some of their BLM members to commit mass suicide as a form of, say, political expression, that they would eagerly comply.
That is my first choice of what might happen in November 2020.
However, as the study shows, there are MANY cults in our country, any one of them capable of becoming another Jonestown.
It has emerged that two 12-year-old girls who tragically died after falling from a high rise building were part of an internet “death group”.

Hungarian-Ukrainian Revolution and Civil War
On the other hand, neighboring Ukraine (part of which was once Hungary), had a major revolution starting in November 2013 which led to civil war in 2014. By December, many journalists and historians were drawing a parallel between what happened in Hungary in 1956 and what was happening in Ukraine in 2013.
So now we must ask what will happen in November 2020 or thereabouts?
We have restiveness giving way to civil disorder in Hungary, properly speaking, three times (1956, 2006, and 2013) and twice in Ukraine (2004 and 2013-14).
Also, keeping in mind that Transcarpathian Ukraine was once a part of Hungary, we are forced to look at the entire region. It may not be an "either/or" situation this time around but both.
We must also look at adjacent regions such as Moldova and Romania. For all we know it will be a Romanian civil war next time around.
Besides that, we are in a period of historical correction that can make many projected events occur later than what would be normal for base 7 by as much as two years and two months. This gives us a potential late date of January 2023.
As dangers increase of a major two-front war in the Middle East involving Saudi-Iranian and Israeli-Iranian conflicts that also involve Iraq, Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon, prophecy warns such a confrontation will coincide with restiveness in the Balkans, Hungary, and the former territories of "Sarmatia" (modern Ukraine, southern Russia, and the eastern Balkans) and "Lithuania" (now present-day Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, and parts of Poland and Russia).
As the Middle East War grows increasingly more dreadful, taking in all countries of the region and possibly some adjacent ones in North Africa and the Indian subcontinent, revolutions and civil wars will increase in the above-mentioned nations bounding Russia. Two leaders in the Balkans/Hungary and a third, possibly in the former Czechoslovakia, will be assassinated during this period of civil unrest. There will be a short war with Russia that will seem to be resolved, a brief phony peace during which the third leader is assassinated, followed by a Russian invasion of Europe (the true World War III).
But we are getting ahead of ourselves with a future history that may well extend to either the year 2028 or as late as 2037.
And yes this also indicates the developing two-front war in the Middle East will drag on for a number of years, as long as the Syrian Civil War or longer. The final phase of the war in the Middle East will be an Iranian thrust into Turkey and northwards into the Balkans and southern Russia.
In any event the beginning of the troubles in East Europe will likely begin in Hungary and where it almost began in 2014: Ukraine. November 2020 is the next danger point. If the current period of historical correction continues, this event may be stalled until January 2023.

Pro-Hifter Forces Attack Italy and Germany
ISIS was driven out of Libya by military strongman Khalifa Hifter (aka Khalifa Haftar), but there are indications that terrorism is returning in the form of jihadists from countries such as Sudan and also from pro-Assad Syrian militants (since Bashar al-Assad is now an ally of Hifter). Also included in the region's conflict capable of stirring up trouble across the Mediterranean is the Wagner Group, Russian paramilitary units allied to Hifter and the same organization that stirred up rebellion and civil war in eastern Ukraine in 2014.
My best guess is that with NATO nation Turkey supporting the UN-approved GNA in Tripoli, and Putin and Assad backing Hifter and the LNA, the conflict could somehow become part of a NATO vs Russian confrontation, especially if the two are on the verge of war in Syria or Ukraine or Hungary. In that case, if NATO nations Italy and Germany side with Turkey against Hifter, Assad, and Russia, the attacks on Rome and Berlin would not be terrorist in nature but military, probably by Russia acting on behalf of Hifter's LNA as well as it's own interests in Central and Eastern Europe.
