Potential 'Problem' Dates

May 5, 2000 - Planetary Alignment Day. According to astronomers, the Earth will line up opposite the Sun from the other planets on this day, more or less in a line. The concern is that the total gravitational forces of the other planets may cause crustal changes (earthquakes, etc.) in the Earth. Not a good thing if our disaster relief agencies are overloaded from Y2K.

December 30, 2000 - The Cassini space probe 'near flyby' of Jupiter...

January 1, 2001 - the beginning of the next Millennium ...

December 23, 2012 - the 'end' of the Mayan calendar, altho I have read that changes in our current calendar may mean this date is actually much closer, possibly 2003 ...

please, everyone feel free to send me comments and ideas for this 'timeline'.

this page is a work in progress.
