A True Black Hole Eats Stars For Breakfast!

2011 is almost over..and we saw plenty of Pre-2012 scenarios. We saw Elenin, Tsunami's, unprecedented tornado's, woes of wisdoms, and universal / astrological anomaly's.

Was 2011 a precursor to 2012? Will 2012 live up to its billing? It seems we have been building since 2006, which is a major time the Zohar predicted; ie. the perhaps the war began with the war of Hizbulah in 2006....since then things have become more intense every year.

One even  that happened in 2011 was this: A black hole devouring a star the size of our sun.

A bright flash of gamma rays observed March 28 by the Swift satellite may have been the death rattle of a star falling into a massive black hole and being ripped apart, according to a team of astronomers led by the University of California, Berkeley.
When the Swift Gamma Burst Mission spacecraft first detected the flash within the constellation Draco, astronomers thought it was a gamma-ray burst from a collapsing star and designated it GRB 110328A. On March 31, however, UC Berkeley’s Joshua Bloom sent out an email circular suggesting that it wasn’t a typical gamma-ray burst at all, but a high-energy jet produced as a star about the size of our sun was shredded by a black hole a million times more massive.

Careful analysis of the Swift data and subsequent observations by the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory confirmed Bloom’s initial insight. The details are published online today (Thursday, June 16) in Science Express, a rapid publication arm of the journal Science.
“This is truly different from any explosive event we have seen before,” Bloom said.
What made this gamma-ray flare, called Sw 1644+57, stand out from a typical burst were its long duration and the fact that it appeared to come from the center of a galaxy nearly 4 billion light years away. Since most, if not all, galaxies are thought to contain a massive black hole at the center, a long-duration burst could conceivably come from the relatively slow tidal disruption of an infalling star, the astronomers said.
“This burst produced a tremendous amount of energy over a fairly long period of time, and the event is still going on more than two and a half months later,” said Bloom, an associate professor of astronomy at UC Berkeley. “That’s because as the black hole rips the star apart, the mass swirls around like water going down a drain, and this swirling process releases a lot of energy.”
Bloom and his colleagues propose in their Science Express paper that some 10 percent of the infalling star’s mass is turned into energy and irradiated as X-rays from the swirling accretion disk or as X-rays and higher energy gamma rays from a relativistic jet that punches out along the rotation axis. Earth just happened to be in the eye of the gamma-ray beam.
Bloom draws an analogy with a quasar, which is a distant galaxy that emits bright, high-energy light because of the massive black hole at its center gobbling up stars and sending out a jet of X-rays along its rotation axis. Observed from an angle, these bright emissions are called active galactic nuclei, but when observed down the axis of the jet, they’re referred to as blazars.
“We argue that this must be jetted material and we’re looking down the barrel,” he said. “Jetting is a common phenomenon when you have accretion disks, and black holes actually prefer to make jets.”
Looking back at previous observations of this region of the cosmos, Bloom and his team could find no evidence of X-ray or gamma-ray emissions, leading them to conclude that this is a “one-off event,” Bloom said.
“Here, you have a black hole sitting quiescently, not gobbling up matter, and all of a sudden something sets it off,” Bloom said. “This could happen in our own galaxy, where a black hole sits at the center living in quiescence, and occasionally burbles or hiccups as it swallows a little bit of gas. From a distance, it would appear dormant, until a star randomly wanders too close and is shredded.”
Probable tidal disruptions of a star by a massive black hole have previously been seen at X-ray, ultraviolet and optical wavelengths, but never before at gamma-ray energies. Such random events, especially looking down the barrel of a jet, are incredibly rare, “probably once in 100 million years in any given galaxy,” said Bloom. “I would be surprised if we saw another one of these anywhere in the sky in the next decade.”

The astronomers suspect that the gamma-ray emissions began March 24 or 25 in the uncatalogued galaxy at a redshift of 0.3534, putting it at a distance of about 3.8 billion light years. Bloom and his colleagues estimate that the emissions will fade over the next year.
“We think this event was detected around the time it was as bright as it will ever be, and if it’s really a star being ripped apart by a massive black hole, we predict that it will never happen again in this galaxy,” he said.

Of the predictions for 2012, it has been said Gamma Rays are a possibility. Did we get hit over the summer (winter in Australia for those Down Under ) with 2012 Gamma Rays? - Meaning perhaps we have been effected, and now we are living out the effect, into 2012.
When this story came out in June, I couldn't help but imagine this was connected to 2012, the odds and implications are off the charts!

Thus with 2011 nearing its will it end and how will we view 2012 when its over? How will 2011 look in the rear view mirror of 2012?

It seems 2010 and 2011 were preparing us for something big, or was it more than preparation? Did we actually go through something?

It has been predicted by NASA that in 2012 the Earth will pass an energy cloud that could destroy electric grids all over the world.
This is the time we have all been waiting's here and we are living it.

May "living now" help us realize that (hopefully) the Geulah has begun, and we are now revealing it to the world!
 And it is said - "It will be a time of trouble for Jacob, and from it you will be saved"

"For a fire is kindled in My nostrils that will burn to the depths of Sheol, and devour the Earth and her produce and will set ablaze the foundations of the mountains" (Devarim 32).

"Damascus will cease being a city: it will be a heap of ruins" (Yeshaya 17).

"Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup" (Tehillim 11).

"The L-rd empties the earth and makes it waste and utterly despoiled . . . the earth mourns and withers, the world languishes and fades away . . . the earth also is defiled under its inhabitants; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in the wind; so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion that it falls--never to rise again. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left . . . desolation is left in the city and the gate is battered to ruins" (Yeshaya 24).

"A noise shall reach even to the ends of the earth; for the L- rd has a quarrel with the nations . . . evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. And the slain of the L-rd shall be on that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground (Yirmiya 25).

"And it shall come to pass that in all the earth two-thirds shall die . . . and I will bring the third through the fire and refine them . . . and this will be the punishment of the nations . . . their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their sockets, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth" (Zecharya 13 & 14).

We pray for a complete and perfect Redemption wherein will be fulfilled G-d's promise: "Behold I will create a new Heaven and a new Earth; and the former one will not be remembered nor even come to mind!" (Yeshaya 65)
