New Radiation Belt Appears Around Earth - Before Being Destroyed by Galactic Shock Wave

These are massive precursors to the "signs in the heavens" (Luke 21:11), signs meaning portents or precursors, warnings of greater things to come.  Let's face it, we've had advance orbital technology in place since at least the 1960's, do new radiation belts appearing aren't common. 

It would appear this radiation belt appeared as a buffer to the galactic shock wave that struck Earth.  If this sounds exotic, we should recognize these are "exotic" times we live in.  In recent years it's been admitted that increased solar coronal activity actually strengthens the Earth's protective magnetic field.  One concern of the recent fireball activity is the Earth's magnetic field is weaker due to reduced activity from the Sun.

So did satellites pick up a divine event in 2012?  Perhaps.  As we progress into what some are calling the "Year of the Comets", we may not have long to find out.  Watch and pray.

A ring of radiation previously unknown to science fleetingly surrounded Earth last year before being virtually annihilated by a powerful interplanetary shock wave, scientists say.

NASA's twin Van Allen space probes, which are studying the Earth's radiation belts, made the cosmic find. The surprising discovery — a new, albeit temporary, radiation belt around Earth — reveals how much remains unknown about outer space, even those regions closest to the planet, researchers added.

After humanity began exploring space, the first major find made there were the Van Allen radiation belts, zones of magnetically trapped, highly energetic charged particles first discovered in 1958.
"They were something we thought we mostly understood by now, the first discovery of the Space Age," said lead study author Daniel Baker, a space scientist at the University of Colorado.

These belts were believed to consist of two rings: an inner zone made up of both high-energy electrons and very energetic positive ions that remains stable in intensity over the course of years to decades; and an outer zone comprised mostly of high-energy electrons whose intensity swings over the course of hours to days depending primarily on the influence from the solar wind, the flood of radiation streaming from the sun.

The discovery of a temporary new radiation belt now has scientists reviewing the Van Allen radiation belt models to understand how it occurred.
