Discovered in June 2011 by Hawaii astronomers, Comet 2011 L4 will be making a close approach of 1.0 AU (astronomical units) to Earth on March 5th. Strong likelihood this may be visible to the naked eye.
Sometime in the next 30 days NASA will make a history making announcement concerning a discovery made on Mars.
Organic life discovered. Announcement to come on confirmation now underway.
Updated: This appears to be another over-hyped remark of NASA employee. Nothing remarkable to report.
Sunspot AR1429 has already sent two CMEs into space since it began turning earthward over the weekend. Neither CME is heading directly at Earth, but both are expected to hit our planet’s magnetosphere. NOAA forecasters predict the CME’s will create a 30% to 40% chance of geomagnetic storms during the next 24-48 hours.

In a spectacular solar display, the sun released one of the biggest solar explosions ever seen by human eyes today. A Class M CME was launched at Earth at approximately 2:41 A.M. EDT. The Royal Observatory of Belgium and other space monitoring agencies put out alerts that a major geomagnetic disrupting disturbance was headed towards Earth. Latest updates from NOAA indicate that it will not be a direct hit but will most likely affect the Earth to a slight degree. The arrival of the coronal mass ejection (CME) is projected for sometime tomorrow or on Jun 9th. This explosion comes just 2 days after another significant CME was launched from the Sun’s surface.
UPDATE 6-9-2011 (8:45 P.M. EDT): A geomagnetic storm is hitting the Earth right now – k=>5 which is moderate. The exact strength is not known at this time but power grids could be affected.
UPDATE 6-8-2011: Several countries in Europe are reporting that disruptions to power and communications grids could occur between 6 PM and over the next 24 hours. There are some discussions that flights could be diverted in certain areas. Please see newspaper report below:

Asteroid 2005 YU55 will pass close to Earth on November 8th, 2011. This large asteroid (1,300 ft/ 400 meters) will pass Earth within 0.85 lunar distances. This is extremely close and very big. It will approach from the South.
More details to come as it gets closer.

The mountains will tremble once again under the place that bears a name of God in the land of the white clouds
What was once peopled will be uninhabitable.

Update 3-20-2011 -
2 quakes +4.5 magnitude strike New Zealand near Christchurch today. This is the detail for one of them:
The chariot of Apollo burns bright as it navigates its path.
Not once but twice will it send its arrows.
This will cause astonishment to all who witness its brilliance.
Apollo’s arrows will shimmer across the sky but their beauty will bring fear and confusion to those who understand.
