This is just a sample. Check out Trumpets 2 & 3 - when the appointed time of GOD'S final warnings to mankind arrive and His Wrath breaks out against Wickedness, I believe Trumpet 4 is volcanic activity.

I'm sure they will find it is connected after all.

Awaiting a post of the radar returns from that particular "spud" in space.

They should be able to resolve boulders & be able to see it rotate as it flys by.

Was a little too distant to be tidally distorted by gravity. Needed to be at shuttle height or closer for "spud" shaped rubble piles typical of asteroids in general to distort into a binary.

Incidentally the Asteroid "toutatis" previously mapped by radar returns, was in fact just such a tidally distorted binary, following a close pass with a planet (either Earth Mars or Venus being the best candidates, with the Moon or Mercury as outside candidates).

Have a nice day: Ag
