Footprints of Dragons?

If you were given a book with pictures of the footprints of all of the different animals in a zoo, would you be able to walk around that zoo, and match images of footprints with the beast that made them?

I’ve been told many times that a cluster impact event would be ‘highly unlikely’.

But consider this. For the most part, there are two families of orbits, from which objects that impact the Earth might come from; the asteroid belt, and the Taurid Complex. There is some pretty scary stuff in the asteroid belt that would be extremely dangerous if it were in an elliptical, Earth-crossing, orbit. But, for the most part, they are in stable orbits. And they are no threat.

Most of the dangerous objects in Earth-crossing orbits come from the Taurid Complex, not the asteroid belt. And when we look at that family of objects, we don’t find solid asteroids. We tend to find highly unstable comets that tend to break up, and fragment into thousands of pieces. And, in fact, swarms of cometary fragments, and debris, from the Taurid complex are the most common type of object in Earth-crossing orbit. This means that airburst storms caused by cluster impact events of smaller fragments are, in fact, the most likely scenario for a catastrophic impact event, not a single, large bolide. And the fragment distribution of something like comets Linear, or SW-3, are a perfect match for countless small craters averaging 100 meter diameter we see in New Mexico, and West Texas.

Last month, I talked about the Footprints of a Fragmented Comet. Let’s look at some more of them in the same general area.

From 12 km above the dark depressions we see in the image below look like fly specks. And they begin to get really interesting when we zoom in, and look a little closer.

NewMexCluster I don’t know about you. But I see the footprints of a monster. And before it fell to Earth, that monster would’ve looked something like the fragments of comet Linear.Linear_composite2c 

They fill up with water in the rainy season. So the bottoms are silted in. And the features are slightly eroded. But when we zoom in for a close look at a couple of those ‘flyspecks’, we can clearly see the raised rims, and ejecta curtains of impact craters. And they are apparently all the same age.

NewMexCluster4 The two craters above are 150 meters diameter, and 80 meters Diameter.

NewMexCluster5They appear to be as much a product of airburst phenomena, as kinetic impact. And Few of them are exactly round. But the 75 meter crater at 32.36044, –103.396500 is close to perfect.

NewMexCluster6 In that group, they tend to be found in chains. This view is from about 4 km altitude.

I’m thinking the structure is related to airburst phenomena. And I am of the opinion that the particle sizes included material all the way down to the size of sand, or dust grains.

I would not expect to see the normal set of impact markers in these cluster of small craters. But I do expect to see enough extra terrestrial chemistry there to prove these are impact craters. And that they all fell in the same impact storm. It gets especially startling when you realize they are found in clusters like these, in varying concentrations, in  a large region than extends all the way to central Texas, and on down into Mexico

Since the morphology is not what we’ve expected to see in an impact structure, the proof of ET origin for these formations will be in the mix of isotopes.

  1. It is now widely accepted that collisions in the past have had a significant role in shaping the geological and biological history of the planet. A study showed that the United States and China are the nations most vulnerable to a meteor strike.

    • Indeed, the planetary scarring that I have interpreted as recent airburst geomorphology is most abundant at those latitudes.

  2. If the event tied into that of the sun going down in the same direction it was rising, then the hemisphere at risk of a repeat is in the South now! As the bulk of the galaxy is in that direction also, I feel especially vulnerable ….!

    The stress of approaching a body with a massive electrical charge like the earth, would easily destroy any object not planet sized. The debris would then become separated by the effects of atmosphere and land apart with a shotgun effect.

    Paul LaViolette considers the issue at length.

    Great Blog!

    • Thanks Pat,

      I remain to be convinced that ‘Galactic Superwave’ Theory is valid in this context.

      No massive electrical discharge from passing too close to a planet broke up Comets Linear, or SW-3. They were nowhere near a planet when they broke up. And, while the geomorphology of many of the suspected airburst formations I’ve identified seems to be consistent with a powerful electrical discharge event, such as a ‘Z’ pinch explosion at the surface, that electrical discharge can be explained simply by the fact that plasma temps along the entry path of an impacting comet fragment can be high enough to provide a superconducting plasma ‘short-circuit’ between the ionosphere, and the surface.

      I’ve tried to contact him. But Paul La Violette has never answered a single email. Since he does not seem to be interested in discussing how his theories might relate to the catastrophic mass movements, and planetary scarring, I’ve been identifying in the Great Lakes region, Mexico, and the American Southwest, I have to conclude that they don’t. That being said, I will leave his work unread.

      I have two criteria that must be met before I will consider something as a citable reference. They are:

      1.) Verifiable, catastrophic, mass movement of terrains, or surface materials, which can be identified, and studied, in good satellite data. And which can be verified by field work, and detailed chemical analysis of blast effected materials.

      2.) Refereed scientific literature.

      I will be interested in studying anything pertinent that Dr LaViolette may have published in peer reviewed journals. But the popular press can be a quagmire of conflicting, unprovable, theories. So, unless I am in communication with the author, I prefer to leave work that hasn’t been submitted for peer review, on the shelf.

      • Fair points!

        What of our fifth planet? The asteroids clearly are the remains of an event. Whatever formed them also quite likely scattered them too!

        Doubters who try to rely on “common sense” that clusters are not common have too many defects in their argument.

        Valuable research, thanks.
