Asteroid impacts are not as rare as we think, and it’s time to do something about them

Prophecy Sign:  Heavenly bodies will be shaken, (Luke 21:26)

Scientists having been looking up into the skies and have noticed something rather disconcerting; The earth gets hammered by nuclear scale asteroid impacts more often than they thought. Like 10 times more often. Well here's hoping those scientists keeping searching the skies, because soon one very big asteroid, (meteor, comet), will come swooping through the atmosphere and make short work of a third of the oceans and the life within it. But don't worry, this is a Tribulation event and the Church of Jesus Christ will have been evacuated years prior in the great catching way, (Rapture).  Book your passage now, before it's too late.

The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood,  a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. Revelation 8:8-9 NIV

Asteroid impacts are not as rare as we think, and it’s time to do something about them
When a massive asteroid exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia last year, it was a jarring wake-up call to us all about the dangers of these impacts, but in many cases, the prevailing opinion is that these events are rare. However, according to new research, that asteroid was just one of over two dozen large impacts that our planet has suffered since the year 2000, and it is only by pure luck that we have escaped disaster.
Of all of them, the Chelyabinsk superbolide is probably the most well-known, but besides four or five others — especially in the Mediterranean Sea in June 2002, over New South Wales in Nov. 2005, over Indonesia in Oct. 2009 and in California and Nevada in April of 2012 — the rest went completely unnoticed except by these infrasound detectors. This has easily supported the idea among the public that these impacts are rare, but in fact, that's just not so.

Nuclear-scale asteroid blasts in atmosphere '10 times more common' than thought
There have been 26 nuclear-scale asteroid explosions in the Earth’s atmosphere between 2001 and 2013, according to a new report. The most powerful of the impacts was dozens of times the magnitude of the atom bomb that devastated Hiroshima, Japan in 1945. Most of the asteroid explosions occurred much too high in the atmosphere to do any damage on the ground, according to findings by the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization. The group operates “a network of sensors that monitors Earth around the clock listening for the infrasound signature of nuclear detonations.” The 26 incidents measured by the organization ranged from 1 to 600 kilotons of energy. The atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima by the United States, for example, contained 15 kilotons of energy, according to the B612 Foundation, which presented visualization of the findings at a press conference in Seattle on Tuesday.
