Well the 15th has arrived, and this report is developing from what is probably a related incident, occurring Friday in Russia. Meteorite hits Russian Urals: Fireball explosion wreaks havoc, over 900 injured (PHOTOS, VIDEO)
One of the reports claimed that the meteor was blasted by a missile while it was still 20 kilometers above the earth.
“According to unconfirmed reports, the meteorite was intercepted by an air defense unit at the Urzhumka settlement near Chelyabinsk. A missile salvo blew the meteorite to pieces at an altitude of 20 kilometers, local newspaper Znak reported quoting a source in the military. The regional Emergency Ministry denied that military air defenses were involved in the incident. Regnum news agency quoted a military source who claimed that the vapor condensation trail of the meteorite speaks to the fact that the meteorite was intercepted by air defenses.”
What comes to my mind is Revelation 8's account of the third angel, which I believe is coming in a few more years.
10 The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. 11 The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. ~ Revelation 8:10-11
Wormwood is related to mugwort or polyn and Chernobyl. “Chernobyl” strongly suggests that the bitterness described in verse 11 is radiation poisoning, because of the famous disaster in 1986. For years, I've been thinking what's going to happen is that an incoming celestial body will threaten the earth with destruction, and missiles will be launched in an attempt to reduce the damage by deflecting and breaking up that body. The bitterness would be due to the use of nuclear warheads on those missiles.
This event in Russia is probably the first such attempt, where missiles armed with conventional warheads were dispatched.
Chelyabinsk, Russia was the nearest named population center, Chernobyl, Ukraine is not that different sounding, and not really that far distant.

Revelation 8 is coming soon, but before that time many things will change.
