All the nervous talk by the government about asteroids as we approach the millennium is not just talk. Star Wars started the theme, NASA has never dropped it, and disaster movies hammer the theme home to the public - worry about asteroids.
More than just the 12th Planet comes through on its periodic passages. The 12th Planets moons travel like a string of pearls behind the monster traveling planet because they have been caught in its gravitational field. And a great deal of trash has also been caught, from boulders to gravel to dust that drags long behind as the giant comets tail. But outside of the 12th Planets gravitational grip, yet influenced more by the 12th Planet than any other object, is other trash that makes the rounds with the 12th Planet. Like rogue asteroid or meteor dust, this trash could conceivably impact the Earth, as its orbit is not like the orbit of the trash in the Asteroid Belt, orbiting the Sun always a distance away from the Earth, its orbit crosses the Solar System at an angle, just as the 12th Planet itself does.
Early harbingers of this trash have begun arriving, and have announced their arrival in dramatic ways. Unlike the familiar shooting stars, these harbingers are green, not white, when they burn up in the atmosphere. Like the other signs on the increase, these harbingers will increase in numbers and be joined by other dramas in the skies, all of which will remain unexplained by the authorities.
