Huge Fireball Reported Over Ireland Creates an Uproar
Fireball Crashes Over County Cavan
Meteors and fireballs are nothing new to most amateur astronomers or to those that have been paying attention. Looking back to Montana fireball on January 18th to a curious Nebrasaka fireball on Dec. 16th that coincided with a 3.5 magnitude quake in Auburn. But this huge fireball spotted over Ireland at around 6pm local time on Feb. 3, 2010 is creating quite a sensation. (I mentioned in previous posts to watch these events being manipulated by media and TPTB). The hysteria and mania being generated is symptomatic of all the Neptunian aspects present including the upcoming Jupiter in Pisces exact sextile with Pluto in Capricorn on 2-6-10. Here is the report from the Irish Times.
The Times quoted Tommy Moore from Astronomy Ireland: “A major explosion happened in the sky over Ireland. We think it’s a fireball, that’s a rock from space the earth has slammed into and they burn up as huge shooting stars. This one appears to have lit up the whole country. The phones here in Astronomy Ireland are going crazy.”

Mars and Neptune are Prominent
Looking at the chart below: Set for 6 PM in County Cavan, Ireland near where the fireball is supposed to have landed, we see Leo rising @ 24 degrees with fiery Mars retrograde in the 12th which speaks of an event which captures the imagination and unconciousness of the world. Mars is in TSQ to Taurus at MidHeaven and Sun in Aquarius. Perhaps the cause of all the rumors and wild stories about UFO landing and the military cordoning off the area is Leo rising with an opposition to Neptune in the 7th close to Chiron that shamanic trickster.
The diplomatic Moon in Libra is knocked off center with an opposition to Juno also in a fire sign this time Aries in the 9th house of foreign objects. Conflicting reports and sensational stories along with lots more video (Jupiter in Pisces) are a given.
It is interesting that Mars is playing such a huge part too with the Motto for County Cavan in the province of Ulster: Feardhacht is Fírinne (Irish)
"Manliness and Truth" Which speaks volumes for Martian energies.
Couple of quick notes about County Cavan where the Fireball Landed:
In medieval times, Cavan was known as East Brefnie, or Brefnie O'Reilly after its ruling Gaelic family since it was a major part of the 11th century Irish Kingdom of Breifne.
Meanings of Breifne
Going deeper down that leprechaun hole we find that the previous meaning of Breifne until recently was that it means "hilly" in Irish, a description which describes the topography of this part of Ireland. Hills that are high, hard and gravely relate to Leo. Going further with the etymology of the word we find some interesting correspondences. Recent advances in language studies indicate that the name is derived from the pre-Celtic substrate language spoken in Ireland before the arrival of the Celts and means "Ring" or "Loop". Breifne would therefore have one of the oldest placenames in Ireland, dating from prior to 500 B.C. This is by far an interesting place for this meteor to land..
More influence of Mars retrograde is found in this definition: Alternatively, the Metrical Dindshenchas states the name is derived from Brefne, daughter of Beoan mac Bethaig, a brave soldier-woman.
