Nostradamus and Past Events

Trick or Treat: It's Toutatis!

NASA scientists are monitoring a large near-Earth asteroid that tumbled past our planet on Halloween 2000.
October 31, 2000 -- Most Halloween visitors are no more alarming than, say, an earnest-looking 3-foot vampire with an eye on the candy tray -- easily warded off with a bag of M&M's. But this year there's a more sinister Trick-or-Treater on our planet's doorstep: the near-Earth asteroid 4179 Toutatis.

It's official: the Earth is at risk from falling asteroids.
A Government task force has concluded that the threat of asteroids crashing to Earth as portrayed in Hollywood movies Deep Impact and Armageddon is not the stuff of science fiction – it's very, very real.

Asteroid gives Earth a cosmic 'close shave'

Danger from outer space
The Earth has had a cosmic near miss with an asteroid one third of a mile wide, leading to new calls for an international task force to devise ways of preventing a devastating impact.

The 2000 QW7 asteroid, which originated in the belt between Mars and Jupiter, passed within 2.4 million miles of the Earth on Friday morning, astronomers said yesterday. It was detected at Cornell University's Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, six days before it hurtled past the Earth.

Bright Asteroid

A big and bright near-Earth asteroid will glide by our planet on Dec. 16th within easy range of powerful radars and backyard telescopes.
Dec. 14, 2001: There's no danger of a collision, but astronomers are nevertheless keeping a watchful eye on "1998 WT24" -- a large near-Earth asteroid that will glide by our planet this weekend.

Corkscrew Asteroid

A tiny asteroid looping around Earth for the past seven years is about to leave the neighborhood.
June 9, 2006: News flash: Earth has a "second moon." Asteroid 2003 YN107 is looping around our planet once a year. Measuring only 20 meters across, the asteroid is too small to see with the unaided eye—but it is there.

Comet LINEAR Misbehaves

Comet LINEAR did not become a spectacular naked-eye object as many stargazers had hoped, but it is intriguing astronomers with its peculiar dynamic behavior.

Lackluster comet LINEAR (C/1999 S4) unexpectedly threw astronomers a curve.

Comet 1999 S4 (LINEAR) July 21, 2000

1999 S4 (LINEAR) is yet another unusual (moving) 17th magnitude object discovered by LINEAR on September 27,1999. This comet, which was initially reported as asteroidal object, has since been confirmed as a comet by the NEO Page. D. Durig of Sewanee, Tennessee has been credited as noting the object's cometary appearance. Preliminary parabolic orbital elements suggest that this comet might become a naked-eye object next June and July.

World Still Here Despite Cosmic Event

May 5, 2000 — As Mercury, Venus, Mars Jupiter, Saturn and the moon fall into alignment today, doomsayers are bunkering down for a possible series of natural disasters.
Astronomers say today's alignment is the tightest since 1962.


FRONTLINE special explores the impact of apocalyptic thinking from the early Middle Ages to the present and illustrates how the Book of Revelation and its visions and symbolism has shaped the course of Western history in the second millennium.

Doomsdays Come and Go, But Fatalism Lasts Forever

It's hard to find a year without a doomsday prophesy. Perhaps the time to start worrying might be when you stop hearing the end is near.

Planetary Alignments in 2000

The news is out! There will be a series of planetary alignments in the year 2000. Will the earth tilt over? No. Will tidal forces trigger earthquakes? No. Will the polar ice caps melt? No. Will you even be able to see the alignments? Not really. But a lot of people want to know what is going on, so the Griffith Observatory has established this page with all the details and links.

Nostradamus and Comet Lee: A Cosmic Cataclysm Waiting to Happen?

Comet Lee is a newly discovered comet, which is today (8-7-99) behind the sun but is scheduled to emerge into Earth's view exactly on August 11—the very day of the much-publicized eclipse of the sun! According to the Millennium Group scientists*, Comet Lee's effect on the Earth could vary wildly between causing earthquakes, and hurricane-like weather to a cosmic cataclysm scenario like Shoemaker-Levy's comet fragments crashing into Jupiter should Comet Lee be captured in an Earth-moon orbit.

Nostradamus and the 1999 August 11 Solar Eclipse?

"This will be preceded by a solar eclipse more dark and gloomy than any since the creation of the world, except that after the death and passion of Jesus Christ. And it will be in the month of October than the great translation will be made and it will be such that one will think the gravity of the earth has lost its natural movement and that it is to be plunged into the abyss of perpetual darkness." Nostradamus - Letter to the King Henri II

Nostradamus and the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider?

Big debate over a 'Little Big Bang'   Real-life quest for quarks sparks science-fiction speculation. Some have made it out to be a "mad scientist" story: Using an experimental particle collider, researchers are planning to create an exotic kind of matter they believe existed a millionth of a second after the Big Bang. But in this case, the scientists are really mad — about the doomsday talk that has overshadowed the experiment itself. 

Nostradamus and the Weather?

For some years now Global Psychics has quite accurately predicted the global weather and environmental conditions year by year, and in the process we noticed an escalation in the storm patterns beginning back in 1991. By last year, we were convinced that we were heading into a tumultuous time, a time of devastating storms and natural disasters occurring so frequently that we would no longer notice that the entire planet is being battered into a new kind of submission. However, we believe that it's critical to be attentive and noticing of the changes occurring.  The time has come for us to take responsibility for what we are creating.

Stefan Paulus: "Glad to be Wrong"

Stefan Paulus interpreted the 16th-century French astronomer Nostradamus' prophecies as predicting a comet collision in September — and wrote a book about it. But he's not disappointed that a catastrophe didn't come to pass. "I dedicated the book to the hope that I'm wrong," he said.
