Mayan Predictions: What to Look for, What You’ll See, What Time to See it

CME – solar flare activityOn the morning of December 21, 2012, a “planetary alignment” of sorts will befall our planet, in conjunction with the ending of the Mayan long count calendar.

The winter solstice happens at exactly 11:11 AM GMT, whichstands for Greenwich Mean Time, and this will be 6:11 AM Eastern time, 5:11 AM central time, 4:11 AM mountain time and 3:11 AM Pacific time. Now if you live at the eastern end of your time zone, the sun probably arises a little bit earlier than it does at the western edge of that time zone where you live, so check with your local television station weatherman, and adjust accordingly.

Probably the best place to view what will happen Celestially will be somewhere in the central time zone of the U.S., but I would say anywhere from there across to the Pacific Ocean, the ability to watch what will happen just before sunrise will be fantastic.

I live in the pacific time zone, so lets use that as the barometer. The planet Venus will start things off, and rise above the horizon at 2:46 AM, PST. It will be relatively easy to see in the black predawn sky, as this is several hours before daybreak.

So at 3:11 AM, the winter solstice will arrive, and the longest night of the year will be over. This also means that every day now becomes longer until the summer solstice on June 21, 2013 when it will then become shorter etc. etc. Mercury will rise at 3:23 AM, PST, and for those of you further east in the Pacific time zone, it will be visible even with the Suns increasing light.

And then one hour and six minutes later, at 4:29 AM, the sun will enter our world in a blaze of glory to become the most important object of the day. Now out here in the Pacific time zone, especially in Nevada where I live, there are mountains all around, as I live in the Las Vegas Valley, surrounded by 6000 foot high mountains minimum. So we will have to wait a little bit longer for the sunrise to creep over Frenchman’s mountain. It will arrive 19 minutes later at 6:48 AM Pacific time.

By this time the sky will be so bright that both Mercury and Venus will not be visible to the naked eye, however they will continue their journey across the sky. The planet Pluto, depending on when you were born and if you are a scientist or not is next up, is never visible to the naked eye, but will rise at 7:03 AM, moving across the sky just as Mercury and Venus will, and finally, Mars will arise at 8:24 AM, with the sun aligned almost directly in between Venus and Mars.

And finally the moment we’ve all been waiting for, at 10:05 AM,PST, the sun will be in the exact center of our Milky Way galaxy, in what is referred to as the Galactic equator. As the planets make their heavenly ascension across the sky, at roughly 5:44 PM the sun will set, and then at 7:37 PM Mars will become visible against the night sky while it sinks below the horizon, marking the end of the planetary journey across our planet on this fantastic day. I should think the site of Mars setting over the Pacific Ocean will be the most beautiful picture ever taken, bar none.

So there you have it my friends, the planetary alignment, and the end of the Mayan Long Count calendarwill be old news, and the new age of man will officially be upon us, referred to as the age of Aquarius, and just as all the science geeks that NASA had said previously, the world will not end on December 21, 2012.

That does not mean that our planet is not in store for some changes, and I’ve written numerous articles for this newspaper indicating some of the changes that may be in store for us. But none of these happenings or potential happenings has been foretold, and there is no Celestial crystal ball to gaze into and predict the exact outcome of the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar, but we shall see.

Just in case the world does end, I’d like to say goodbye to my friends on the outside, and I hope to see you on the other side brothers and sisters. Amen.

    Sorry Jim Donahue but this is a really badly written piece. I’m no literary critic but several sentences have blindingly obvious grammatical errors that even a brief re-read would have discovered.

      Thank you for your comments Matt, I was in my 20th hour yesterday when i wrote this piece, and I will correct it now. I would like to thank any and all persons that take the time to help myself personally, and the newspaper in general with these types of issues. We appreciate positive feedback, as well as negative feedback, and folks like yourself Matt are why we do this in the first place. Again, Thanx.

    The solstice happens at 11:11am GMT and EST is GMT-5hours, or 6:11am, and CST is GMT – 6, or 5:11am, and so on.

    Are the times in est?

    If you re-read the first paragraph, it says, almost planetary alignment, and there is a planetary alignment, just not one that is perfectly straight, but off by a total of 135 degrees, but this alleged alignment will put the sun at the galactic equator, something that hasn’t happened in over 25, 000 years. So yes, you are correct, but the rest of what is happening is much bigger than your puny remark, and if that is all you have to hold onto, by all means, hold on for dear life. I will not have my eyes shielded from reality by naysayers like you, as if 1 little insignificant fact makes you Einstein or something. Ha!
