Senegal Bus Crash

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Jan 08, 2023 6:12 am

January 8, 2023, about 3:30 AM, in Gniby village near Kaffrine, Senegal
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senegal_bus_crash_(2023)

A collision of two buses in Senegal killed at least 40 people, with 83 others reported injured. I've added the stub URL for the Wikipedia article that surely will be fleshed out later, but so far there is almost no information.

BBC reported that "one of the buses suffered a burst tyre and collided head-on with" the other bus. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the time (based on the Senegal president's tweet) and the name of the small village. (Reuters gave the location as "on one of the main east-west arteries near the town of Kaffrine, about 220 kilometres (137 miles) southeast of the capital Dakar.")

Kaffrine is 14N06, 15W33. I found Gniby a bit north of there at 14N25'55'', 15W39'19'', which is probably close to the exact spot. I wouldn't have called the highway through Gniby (R60) a "main east-west" road, but it is mostly east-west on the west side of Gniby before turning southeast. It's likely the right location. (Ha! - Though the atlas in Solar Fire doesn't have, and I can't find Gniby by an Internet search other than on Google Maps, the reference Mike uses for TMSA pulls it right up.)

(There was also a bus accident in nearby Kenya killing 21 and injuring 49 others.)

The crash occurred within a few minutes of Saturn crossing IC; but I have rarely seen such an exact, repeated dominance of a single event by Mars for the quarter, month, week, and day!

Year: Capsolar (Dormant.) Moon-Mars.
Year: Cansolar (Dormant.)
NOTE: Even though both the Capsolar and Cansolar were dormant, the closest angularities were the Moon-Mars opposition in the Cap and Saturn in the Can.

Yeti Airlines Flight 691 crash

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Jan 15, 2023 7:43 am

January 15, 2023, 10:51 NPT (+5:45), near Pokhara, Nepal at 28N11'38" 83E58'56"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeti_Airlines_Flight_691

At least 68 people were killed of the 72 on board the Yeti Airlines flight. This was the third deadliest air crash in Nepal's history (the others being in July and September 1992, with 113 and 167 dead, respectively).

The plane crashed in the Seti River Gorge near Pokhara, Nepal. It had last contact with Pokhara airport at about 10:50 AM LT. (It had departed Katmandu at 10:33 AM and reportedly crashed 18 minutes later, which would be 10:51 AM.)

Sunat 29°42' Sagittarius had not entered Capricorn yet, so this is likely the last major event we'll study under the outgoing 2022 Capsolar.

The solar ingresses are unusually poor for this, but the one operative lunar ingress nailed it - a new Liblunar. The Cansolar then timed the date very well.

Monterey Park dance studio shooting

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Jan 22, 2023 11:27 am

January 21, 2023, about 10:22 PM, Monterey Park, CA 34N03'43", 118W07'25"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2023_Mont ... k_shooting

Ten people are dead and 10 wounded (hospitalized) from a mass shooting at a ballroom dance studio in Monterey Park on the immediate outskirts of Los Angeles. (The time is from LA County Sheriff's Department via LA Times.) - To my surprise, this is being labelled the deadliest mass shooting in LA County history.

Possibly this is linked to an incident at another dance studio in nearby Alhambra 17 minutes later. In that case, though, people wrestled a gun away from the male Asian would-be assailant and chased him off

Monterey Park is LA's real "Chinatown" - not the area near downtown called Chinatown. It is the densest concentration of Asians (especially Chinese). This attack appears to have been on a Chinese New Year celebration (but not the city's official celebration, which ended an hour or so earlier).

The shooter is still at large. An exact Venus-Saturn conjunction occurred last night, which ended up being the final timing. The CapQ would have been extremely bad, except that (arising out of the Bridge) the Cansolar had the clear lead on the event and nailed it with great precision.

UPDATE: Death tolll is now 11, not counting the peep who killed himself during a police standoff.

Pakistan mosque suicide murders

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Jan 30, 2023 1:23 pm

January 30, 2023, 1:40 PM PKT, Peshawar, Pakistan at 34N00'47", 71E33'34"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2023_Pesh ... ue_bombing

Suicide bomber at a mosque. At least 61 dead (including 27 police officers), at least 157 others wounded (another report says over 170). (The mosque is situated inside of a secured police compound.) This is only the latest in a recent series of attacks but is the worst of them.
