    If this is indeed true, and it does seem to be the case, than this would be an extinction level event.
    The initial impact will be devastating globally, and the subsequent years to follow will be one of truly
    hellish conditions for any surviving populations. And I am certain that some will survive the event.
    Religious organizations will be calling this the start of "the end". The science community will be
    unsurprised. After all, this is a common event throughout the cosmos and has occured here before
    and will happen again.
    I would certainly be more convinced to hear it from Neill DeGrasse himself.
    Walmart being made privy so to use their structures to prepare for the implementation of Jade Helm is not a shock. Martial law WILL be needed to maintain the madness that will surely erupt.
    I wouldn't mind a ringside seat to view the initial impact. That would be no less than the most awesome spectical to bear witness to. Anyone to share thoughts?

    Ok Chicken Little, here you go - the sky is NOT falling...

    Thursday, May 28, 2015, 4:00 AM - Doomsday scenarios keeping you up at night? Here's a quick guide to whether or not you really need to worry about them.

    Every time we turn around, there seems to be yet another doomsday scenario that's supposed to play out - be it a planetary alignment, asteroid impact or even a planet wandering through our solar system.

    A very quick guide for this is simply the fact that there have been countless prophecies of doom from the skies over the years, and yet we're still here.

    Take, for example, the two most prolific doomsday messages currently on the internet:

    ...

    Sept 24, 2014 "Impact"
    Another rumor being spread around at the moment says that on (or perhaps around) Sept 24, 2015, a well-known asteroid or comet – which, according to some, measures about 2.5 miles wide and is emitting "hellish" noises – is apparently going to strike the Earth.

    While that would certainly be a devastating event, the details just don't add up for this either.

    The only known asteroid flying by Earth on that day is a 200-m wide rock named 2012 TT5. However, as this view of the asteroid's orbit compared to Earth and the Moon shows, the closest it gets is over 8 million kilometres away, or over 21 times farther away than the Moon.

    The details being reported about the object in question – the size and reports that it's making noises – match some of the details of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko - the comet currently being orbited by the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft.

    The larger of the two "lobes" of this duck-shaped comet is 2.5 miles across (4.1 km), and last November, the Rosetta science team did report that the comet sings, however that's as close as the claims get.

    According to the video, someone "in the know" has told the person that the information being reported on the object, specifically about its orbit, is incorrect. However, this kind of information is not gathered and disseminated by just one agency, be it NASA, the ESA or whatever. There is a network of thousands of amateur and professional astronomers, all around the world, that make observations every night and report on objects - both known and newly discovered - and it's these observations that go into the databases of NASA and other agencies. With so many people involved, there would be no point in misrepresenting or misreporting an object's orbit. Maintaining some kind of "conspiracy" would be impossible.

    The fact here is that the orbit of Comet 67P is very well known, as astronomers have watched it swing around the Sun every 6.5 years or so, since it was discovered in September of 1969. The comet never crosses Earth’s orbit, ever, and the closest it gets to us in 2015 is over 264 million kilometres away, or 1.768 times the distance between the Earth and the Sun.

    I am interested in what made you think that this seemed to be true. Could you give us your thoughts on that?

    What makes you believe that "it does seem to be the case"? It has not been in the headline of any major newspaper. It has not been on the TV news. In fact the biggest news yesterday was the "Triple Crown" for the first time in almost 40 years. The same horse, American Pharoah, won the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont. And yes, the idiot owner misspelled "pharaoh."

    In addition to the non-sourced astronomical non-information, the OP is salted with conspiracy theories about Walmart, tunnels and Jade Helm 15.

    The source seems to be someone calling themselves Renee Moses who has a book to sell and abuses the fake-news site Before It's News.

    September 2015 was not her first claimed End-of-World/Rapture event. Previously January 2014 was the claimed date. Also both October 2/3 2012 and October 7/8 2012.

    I'm not sure I want a ringside seat to watch a duck-shaped asteroid strike the earth while quacking hellishly.
