The 4 Horsemen sounds like a good analogy...

4 horsemen of the apocalypse

White Horse...
I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.

Red Horse...
Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.

Black Horse...
I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

Pale Horse...
I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine, and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

The "White Horse" has special mythological connections...

White horses (which are rarer than other colours of horse) have a special significance in the mythologies of cultures around the world. They are often associated with the sun chariot,[1] with warrior-heroes, with fertility (in both mare and stallion manifestations), or with an end-of-time saviour, but other interpretations exist as well.

4 comets...?

Pfffft.

No worries...

yes



The Oort Cloud probably contains 0.1 to 2 trillion icy bodies in solar orbit. Occasionally, giant molecular clouds, stars passing nearby, or tidal interactions with the Milky Way's disc disturb the orbits of some of these bodies in the outer region of the Oort Cloud, causing the object to fall into the inner solar system as a so-called long-period comet. These comets have very large, eccentric orbits and take thousands of years to circle the sun. In recorded history, they are observed in the inner solar system only once.

In contrast, short-period comets take less than 200 years to orbit the sun and they travel approximately in the plane in which most of the planets orbit. They are presumed to come from a disc-shaped region beyond Neptune called the Kuiper Belt, named for astronomer Gerard Kuiper. The objects in the Oort Cloud and in the Kuiper Belt are presumed to be remnants from the formation of the solar system about 4.6 billion years ago.

The Kuiper Belt extends from about 30 to 55 AU and is probably populated with hundreds of thousands of icy bodies larger than 100 km (62 miles) across and an estimated trillion or more comets.

... any candidate for Seal 6 Revelation events? ...
.
 Quoting: Wisconsin


There are four events described in the breaking of the Sixth Seal:

1. A violent earthquake

2. The sun turning "black as sackcloth" and the moon turning "red as blood".

3. The stars of the sky falling.

4. And the sky disappearing "like a scroll and rolling up".


The first three events could be explained as events associated with some natural cause.

But the fourth event is clearly some sort of strictly supernatural public manifestation of God prior to the Second Coming. This is evident from the fact that the sky disappearing and "rolling up". The sky represents matter. When matter (say a piece of wood or paper) is split in two, what fills the space? Answer: air or "the sky" if you like. But when "the sky" (Matter)disappears and is "rolled up" what fills it's place? Answer: the Spirit.

Now, notice the response of the people to the breaking of the Sixth Seal: they desire to hide "in caves and among the rocks" and implore the mountains to "fall on them" killing them. Why? because they covet death at that point more than living and being exposed to the visible presence of "the One who sits on the throne and from the anger of the Lamb". There is another place in Scripture where we find people "hiding" from God's presence: in the Garden of Eden where Adam and Eve become embarrassed after the Fall and wish to hide from God.

So, clearly, the breaking of the Sixth Seal describes some sort of visible, supernatural manifestation of God's Holy Presence that causes people to see their sinful selves and makes them ashamed and afraid.

Hammer Fall all over again...
 Quoting: Aquarius58


Lucifer's Hammer is a post-apocalyptic science fiction novel by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, first published in 1977.

Political lobbying by California Senator Arthur Jellison eventually gets a joint Apollo-Soyuz (docking with the second flight-worthy Skylab) mission into space to study the comet, dubbed "The Hammer" by popular media, which is expected to pass close to the Earth. Despite assurances by the scientific community that a collision with Earth is extremely unlikely, the public, fueled with religious fervor by the evangelist Henry Armitage, begins to hoard food and supplies in anticipation.

Eventually, to the shock of scientists at JPL in Pasadena, who could not track the trajectory accurately enough because of the comet's constant outgassing, the Hammer does fall, breaking up into several smaller comets that impact around the world with devastating results, striking parts of Europe, Africa, the Gulf of Mexico, and both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

The strikes trigger several volcanoes and earthquakes around the world, including the San Andreas fault, heavily damaging the Southern California region and the rest of California, causing millions of casualties. Several of the fragments land in the ocean, causing further damage by the resulting tsunamis (which destroy several major coastal cities around the world, including Los Angeles, killing millions) and long-term climate problems due to the massive quantities of vaporized seawater.

No. Here is a list of all objects (all of them are asteroids, incidentally) set to come closer than .001 AU (none are set to come as close as 0.0001 AU) for the next 33 years, followed by the Julian Day and then the date of close approach:
(99942) Apophis 2462240.40 2029 Apr. 13.90
2012 DA14 2456339.31 2013 Feb. 15.81

2012 UE34 2466617.63 2041 Apr. 8.13
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


I think that following the "cosmic coincidence" that NASA failed to detect on February 15, we can throw most of their data right out the window.

Now, NASA is saying that the Russian "meteor" was 1,000 times larger than previously thought. Thread: Russian Meteorite 1000 times larger than originally thought

Now, NASA is saying that the Russian "meteor" was 1,000 times larger than previously thought. Thread: Russian Meteorite 1000 times larger than originally thought

Lol I have yet to see a comet that is meant to pass within half an AU of Earth. How is it meant to be mainstream media newsworthy? Barely a 'cover up'
