The eruption of Krakatoa caused a comet?

In 1883, the eruption of Indonesian volcano Krakatoa — one of the strongest in the history of mankind. But then no one has connected a natural disaster with the cosmos. Meanwhile, recently a group of astrophysicists from the National Autonomous University of Mexico came to the conclusion that if the Earth narrowly escaped a collision with a giant comet. In August of that fateful 1883 astronomer José Bonilla, a Mexican, too, during the observation of the sky drew attention to the strange and veterenoobraznye cigar-shaped objects that are at a high speed crossing the solar disk. Bonilla counted some

Disasters that could threaten Earth

Scientists have put forward different versions of technological and environmental disasters that pose a serious threat to our planet.

Civilization on Earth for about 120 years ago, may have been in the balance of destruction. In August 1883, a total of only a few hundred kilometers from Earth flying fragments of the comet, the impact of which on the planet would be equivalent to 3 thousands of Tunguska event, a group of Mexican astronomers wrote in an article posted in the digital library at Cornell University. Hector Manterola (Hector Manterola) from the Institute of Geophysics of the

The first UFO sighting explained failed apocalypse

Mexican scientists at the National Autonomous University of Mexico offered an unusual explanation for the observations made astronomer Jose Bonilla in 1883. Article scientists are not accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, but its preprint available at arXiv. org. Practical ways to test their own hypotheses (or the results of computer simulation) scientists in the not lead.

12 and August 13, 1883 Bonilla said blurred surrounded by light haze objects on a background of the sun. For two days he had counted 450 such objects. In 1886, in the magazine L'Astronomie published his article with

In 1883, the head of the Mexican Observatory observed multiple UFOs. What was it really?

August 12th, 1883 at 8:00 Zacatecas Observatory director Jose A. Bonilla was preparing to study the solar corona when he saw a surprising phenomenon. He found a few distant objects, which were close to each other and crossed the solar disk. Within two hours, until the sky was clear, he was able to observe and count 283 celestial bodies that intersect at the corner of them drawn by the lens design. Between 8:00 and 8:40 on August

In anticipation of the end of the world, or piquant flavor transience of life

Life is short?

In the last few years (the number is likely to approximately equal to 10) a certain part of society concerned about certain psychological stress due to the expectation of the "end of the world."

This voltage is fed expertly rogue-prophets, ancient prophecies, which somehow relies implicitly trusted, and many newer, almost today, myths — about the black hole, which will create the Large Hadron Collider, the planet Nibiru, the imminent arrival of hostile aliens (from just found out?) about the crash involving strange matter, and so forth — and hordes of hungry
