On January 1, I received an early present with the Signs data for December 2022, from J.P. Jones, with the data and a lengthy missive regarding a shocking fireball twist.
I’ll explain everything below, so for now, the short version is, “Say what! Ruh Roh!”
As for the USGS, they ended the year with a consistent pack of lies polished off with even more lies.
Oh darn, yet another example of how our tax dollars work against us. No doubt 2023 will be a masterpiece.
Remember when we used to laugh when people said, “we’re from the government, and we’re here to help you?”
Now that we’ve added the word “die” to the end of the phrase, it’s not funny anymore.
On that cheery note, let’s get into the numbers.
December 2022 Fireballs
Fireballs are reported worldwide, and the American Meteor Society, the primary source for North America, for this dataset.
AMS Multistate / Country Fireballs
Multistate/country fireballs cross the borders of multiple states and countries. For this reason, this is a critical category in the dataset because of the distance these fireballs must travel to receive reports from across large geographic areas.
When we looked at the numbers for December, we were shocked. It was a colossal ebb after the November numbers, and initially, the three possibilities were:
- Is fireball reporting data being suppressed?
- Has AMS gone woke, or is it now compromised?
- Have we suddenly entered an unforeseen gap in the Nemesis Cloud?
The answer to all three possibilities is no. In my summary below, I’ll share the actual findings, which you may find quite intriguing. We sure did.
AMS Huge Event Fireballs
It’s commonplace for Multistate / Country Fireballs to be reported as huge events because a huge event occurs when 100 or more eyewitness observers report it.
This massive drop in December from the previous month reversed a two-month trend, and this kind of change would likely be something other than business as usual. Especially in terms of trends.
With this in mind, let’s see what we were following back in January 2022, and then we’ll see how this last year has played out. We’ll begin with our Signs article from a year ago.

Signs 60 – Expect a Deep Impact Event in 2022
This is the sixtieth installment of this Signs series, and we’ve spent years building our fireball database. 2021 was another record-breaking year.
The Mayan calendar date of December 21, 2012, was a benign harbinger to tell us that we had entered a time of tribulation and to prepare. Sadly, we’ve mostly frittered it away, and this brings us to the subset that dropped us on our heads. Huge events.
We use this data subset for testing J.P. Jone’s Nemesis Ring Theory. I use the graph above in my Convergence, Zoom conference calls. Now let’s use this to connect the dots so you can see EXACTLY what we’re talking about.
What you see in the second illustration is how we rely on the Huge Events subset to help us identify rings and gaps within the Nemesis Cloud. Next, let’s examine an updated line chart for Huge Fireball events.
Despite the colossal ebb for the Huge Event subset in December 2022, what we’re seeing now is one of three possibilities.
- Instead of shart upturns and downturns, we could see this trend flatline through 2023.
- We see a climbing star step pattern in 2023.
- The unexpected happens.
Stay tuned to see how it works. Personally, were I a betting man, I’d put my chips on unexpected.
AMS Monthly Total Fireballs
The monthly total fireballs are the most critical category in this dataset. When we look at the monthly total of fireballs for December 2022, the results are short on impressive.
December 2022 is now in fourth place for the year. Yes, it’s odd and we’ll discuss it further on in the summary.
Yearly AMS Fireball Totals
The inner ring of the Nemesis Cloud is bolting upward through the ecliptic into the Northern skies as Nemesis begins accelerating toward aphelion, its closest point to Sol. This brings us to the annual totals.
2022 ends the year setting not one but two records for all time. 2022 has the highest number of observed fireballs in all of known history. The second is that it is the first year to break the 10K threshold, making it the first five-digit year in fireball history. And mind you, 2022 achieved all that despite a colossal ebb in December.
Earthquakes Since 1997
At the outset of our Signs series, J. P. Jones created a dataset spreadsheet that tracks the total number of earthquakes each month beginning with 1997.
The updated table below includes December 2022 with the data reported by the USGS for the month. Seeing how these schmucks lie to us month after month is about as inspiring as ice skating with Freddy Krueger.
Monthly Earthquakes 1/2019 to 10/2022
When we look at the annual global earthquakes for December, we see the same overall trend since January 2022. The numbers track previous years but with a flatter range.
Last month, we extracted the 2022 numbers for November for a better look.
As you can see, a near-flat line of values is inconsistent with natural variability.
But wow, the USGS is not just a pack of liars, but a consistent pack of liars at that. Just look at how the year ended (within range.)
Now let’s ask the obvious question. Is being within plus or minus 3.5% each month a natural pattern of variability, or is it woke propaganda? Go ahead and take a wild shot.
The USGS is pathological, but the American Meteor Society (AMS) has always been reliable, so why a sudden colossal ebb tin fireball observation rates in tDecember 2022? It was in the last ten days of December that the numbers plummeted. By December 29, it was down to 5 events, followed by one on the 30th, and to our surprise, zero for the 31st.
Consider this. Worldwide and even in China, with its awful lockdowns, people everywhere were out at night in the street on the 31st.
To this point, yowusa.com researcher J.P. Jones posed a defining question. “Now, what is the probability of zero fireballs seen worldwide on a night when a large segment of the population worldwide is out celebrating New Year’s?”
It was the right question, and when I researched national weather trends for the last ten days of December, the result was evident concerning the colossal ebb. We have to call it on the weather plus one other thing so let’s do the weather first.

Miracle or mirage? Atmospheric rivers end California drought year with heavy snow and rain
After the driest start to any year on record, California will end 2022 with snow-capped mountains, soaked roadways and — in some places — flood warnings.
Officials said the parade of atmospheric rivers dousing the state will probably continue in the days ahead, providing a glimmer of optimism after a year marked by water restrictions, drying wells and perilous lows on the Colorado River.

December 22-25, 2022 Winter Storm
A powerful arctic cold front surged across the Midwest eventually reaching Michigan by late day Thursday December 22nd. As this occurred, low pressure began to develop along the front over the northern Ohio Valley. This low rapidly deepened, undergoing bombogenesis, as it lifted through the central Great Lakes into southern Ontario Friday December 23rd. System slowly drifted north over the remainder of the weekend maintaining the extremely tight pressure gradient over the region resulting in a long duration of strong winds and a robust lake effect response.
The bottom line is that trouble is flying at us, which is why I wrote the Win-Win Survival Handbook. It shows you how to locate a survival community and build it deep and safe.

December 2022 North American winter storm
From December 21 to 26, 2022, a historic extratropical cyclone created winter storm conditions, including blizzards, high winds, snowfall, or record cold temperatures across the majority of the United States and parts of Canada. Areas which experienced blizzard conditions included parts of Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, New York and Ontario, with the Buffalo area of New York and the Fort Erie and Kingston areas of Ontario experiencing almost two full days of blizzard/zero-visibility conditions on December 23 and 24. The cold wave affected all U.S. states from Colorado to the eastern seaboard and as far south as Miami, Florida. On December 24, 110 million people across 36 states were subject to wind chill alerts.
This is why we must call it on the weather because in the second half of December, all across the nation, the weather obscured the skies and forced people to remain indoors. The last time we reported on something similar, it occurred in March 2020 during the first of the Covid lockdowns.
Now that we’ve explained the weather angle, what is that other thing? Who is reporting fireball observations to AMS? When we started tracking their tracking years ago, half the observers were located in North America (USA and CA) and the rest worldwide.
However, we see a change in reporting numbers; in some months, as much as seventy percent of the reports can originate from outside the USA and Canada. For example, as we go to press this month, we already have two huge events, one in the US and the other in Britain / Europe.
As yowusa.com has a robust global audience, it is our hope that our Signs series have in some way helped to expand the AMS reporting coverage.
Now that we’ve established a high probability that fireball data depends on human intel, what do we see for January 2023?
November 2022 was a mammoth month for fireballs, and December 2022 may have revealed a less dense area behind the November fireball onslaught. It could be another gap or a blip. Either way, the first quarter of 2023 will be definitive.
