Philadelphia Struck by Asteroid 2000 EM26: Your Town Could Be Next

Whenever NASA says not to worry: it time to worry.  February 17, 2014 NASA said that Asteroid 2000 EM26 was not a threat to our planet and that the asteroid would be 2,000,000 miles away. Safe, may be not. Curious that the same asteroid got lost, in fact, the asteroid discovery in 2000 has been ‘lost’ many times over.

Asteroid 2000 EM26:

February 18, 2014, Moby Dick nick-named for Asteroid 2000 EM26 was not on its projected tract on its close call to our planet.

The asteroid was found in Philadelphia, PA (USA) on February 19, 2014 at 10:00-10:20 am (est) when it caused shock waves throughout the area (DE, Southern NJ and SE PA). The powerful shock waves which broke windows, shook tall buildings and homes was preceded by a big bright flashing light.  Eyewitness accounts said that they thought a nuclear bomb was dropped.

First hand accounts from Philadelphians who experienced the asteroid February 19, 2014.

The chances are that Philadelphia was not a direct hit from the asteroid itself but fragments from the asteroid which is followed by the tail or debris field.

Nearly one year from the day, February 15, 2013, NASA also said that another asteroid 2012 DAT 14 would not hit our planet but fragments from this asteroid crash landed in Russia and caused injuries to more than 1,000 people. The media called this event Chyabinski Meteor and to commemorative the event ‘gold’ metal from this year’s Russian Olympics have fragments from the meteor.

Asteroid 2012 DAT 14:

Asteroid 2000 m26 did not leave any creators, the fragments may have disintegrated mid-air. But Philadelphia was not the only city that asteroid 2000 m26 struck, on the same day and the same time, a city in Argentina was struck and eyewitnesses reported the same type of events as occurred in Philadelphia.

More on the Argentine fireball:

Life on the planet is very fragile, ask the dinosaurs. Asteroids and meteors have been striking our planet every since there has been a planet. Lately, asteroids and meteors have been getting closer and closer to us with very little notice and what’s to say that your town may be next to experience the Philadelphia experiment.
