3 New Comets Discovered In August 2020; 2 Periodics & Other With An Extremely High Eccentricity.

These discoveries have just been confirmed — within the week, i.e., August 2, 2020.

Two, i.e., P/2020 O1 & P/2020 O3, are periodicals — in that they have orbital periods that are less than 200-years. Actually both of these have comparatively short orbital periods, i.e., 4.3 & 10 years. That also means that they don’t go very far from the Sun (or us). Also interesting that both these were discovered right after their most recent perihelions. Their next ones are way out.

Not so with the non-periodic, i.e., C/2020 O2. It is due to perihelion a year from now. Its orbital period has yet to be established. But, note its eccentricity. It is over ‘1’. Anything 1 or over has HIGH eccentricity by definition.

Tropical Storm ‘Isaias’ Was 80-Miles To The West, BUT Eversource Still Manage To Lose Power, in Alton (NH), For 8-Hours.

Typical. Did NOT expect anything else from (bloody) Eversource.

We knew this was coming. Eversource is so predictable.

Yes, we had SOME blowing. Nothing major. NO TREES FELL AROUND HERE. We know! We drove around for an hour, at 10pm, looking for any fallen trees. A few small branches down.

Nothing to warrant an 8-hour power outage. Bloody Eversource.

Eversource only has about 160 customers in Alton. We are at the END of a line. No customers beyond us. The line ends with us, in Alton. So, more often than not, Eversource has no incentive or motivation to keep us going.

I am CONVINCED that somebody at an Eversource distribution center turns off our power during a storm so that the juice can be used somewhere else.

That power was restored at 3:14AM proves my point. There is NO WAY, no way in hell, that crews were out there at 3am moving downed trees & splicing power cables.

ONLY way power is restored at 3:14am is by somebody sitting at a station ‘pressing a button’.

Bloody Eversource.

Ransomware Attacks On Big Companies Getting Out-Of-Hand: ‘Garmin’ 10-Days Ago, Now ‘Canon’!

by Anura Guruge

Click to access ‘PetaPixel’ coverage. Google for more.

Wow, these — i.e., ‘Garmin‘ & ‘Canon‘ — are multi-Billion dollar companies.

This has got totally out of hand.

I think we are heading towards a BIG MELTDOWN ahead of the November 3, 2020, U.S. Presidential Election.

I think these ‘hacker groups’ are a FRONT for STATE-SPONSORED attacks!

This is not good. This is NOT going to end well for US!
