Space Weather News for May 29, 2012
ASTEROID FLYBY: A small asteroid is flying past Earth today inside the orbit of geosynchronous satellites and only 14,000 km above the surface of our planet. Named “2012 KT42,” the 3- to 10-meter wide space rock ranks #6 on the top-20 list of known close-approachers to Earth, which makes it significant despite its small size.

Imagine something like this crashing into a populated area… perhaps one with a nuke plant.
That’s why we should all refresh our coffee supply with…
… Mystic Monk Coffee!
Learning about asteroids flybys makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
You start wondering, “What aren’t they telling us?”
There could be, even now, a globe-killing fiery death asteroid hurtling at us RIGHT NOW.
So, relax and enjoy some swell Mystic Monk Coffee.
“But Father! But Father!”, you might be saying. “I don’t have any Mystic Monk Coffee!”
On a more serious note, I hope you all will sit down and think about what you would need to do, how to find your family, what to eat and drink, for a few days, how to stay safe, treat minor injuries, and get out of dodge if there were an emergency in your area.
Also, ask yourself how long it has been since you made your last good confession. We don’t know the day or hour, friends. Bad things happen like bolts of lightning from the blue to unsuspecting people all the time. Just turn on the news and watch for a few minutes. Pick up the paper. Turn on the radio. Examine your consciences carefully and go to confession regularly. Make confession part of your routine, along with mowing the lawn, washing the car, paying your bills, doing the laundry, hoovering the floors. Make an examination of conscience part of your daily routine, like fixing supper, doing the dishes, locking your doors at night. If you check your email, shouldn’t you check your sins of omission and commission? If you don’t want to wear filthy clothing, why walk around with a dirty soul?
Even though “2012 KT42” may not strike the earth today (if you believe them)…
…. you are going to die. Get ready for that.
