You Are Not Terrified Enough…

of comets that is.

If the Rapture Index site gets hold of this info, I expect an exponential increase in raptureness…

The comets, of which there could be thousands, are not currently monitored by observatories and space agencies.

Most comets and asteroids are monitored in case they start to travel towards earth.

But Bill Napier, from Cardiff University, said that many could be going by unnoticed.

“There is a case to be made that dark, dormant comets are a significant but largely unseen hazard,” he said

Scientists estimate that there should be around 3,000 comets in the solar system, but only 25 have so far been identified.

“Dark” comets happen when the water on their surface has evaporated, causing them to reflect less light.

Astronomers have previously spotted comets heading towards earth just days before they passed.

In 1983 a comet called IRAS-Araki-Alcock passed at a distance of just 5 million kilometres, the closest of any comet for 200 years, but it was noticed just a fortnight beforehand.

 Sleep well people.

Of course if you really want something to worry about may I recommend this:
