Asteroids: Deadly Impact (1997)
Asteroids are small celestial bodies that drift around in the solar system around the sun. The largest asteroid known is called Ceres and is classified as a dwarf planet. Most asteroids are found within the main Asteroid Belt.
When large collisions happen between heavenly bodies they are called Impact events. The most recent recorded impact event was the Tunguska event. This happened in Siberia Russia in 1908. The asteroid exploded 3-6 miles about earth's surface, felling around 80 million trees over 830 square miles.
Actually impact events happen about once a year, but most are not noticed, because they tend to happen far about the earth's surface or over an inhabited area like the oceans. But some have been seen. Examples would be Sikhote-Alin meteorite in Russia in 1947, and the Revelstoke fireball in 1965. April 1993 a fireball blew up in Australian over the town of Dubbo. No harm was done.
Then January 18, 2000 the night became like day as a fireball exploded over the town of Whitehorse in Canada. It knocked out a third of the power grid by the electromagnetic pulse caused by the blast. The meteor that exploded was probably 4.6 meters across and weighted 180 tons.
Impact!: The Threat of Comets and Asteroids
Dear Asteroid Enthusiasts,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep?
