Happy Winter Solstice, everyone!
Has it really been 20 years since Pan Am Flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland? As a graduate of Syracuse University who studied in London, I felt connected to the 35 Syracuse students who died in the explosion, which killed 270 people. They were returning home to their families after spending the fall semester in London as part of SU’s international program.
Here’s an article from The Guardian of London on the somber ceremonies that marked the 20th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in Britain’s history.
In remembrance of Lockerbie, which also resulted in the loss of 11 lives and great suffering on the ground in Scotland, here’s a link to an article by the late great astrologer Zip Dobyns on the horrific event.
The article covers a lot of explosive events in December 2008, so if you’re impatient to read about Lockerbie, please scroll to the bottom. Dobyns, who died in 2003, was a great student of asteroids, and made the following observation about the Lockerbie crash:
“As has been mentioned before, there are two asteroids especially associated with destruction from planes, explosives and fire: Dresden and Guernica, named for cities where ‘innocent’ civilians were bombed in two different wars. The Pan Am plane exploded when heliocentric Dresden was on the MC in Lockerbie and geocentric Guernica was trioctile it. All aspects listed are within one degree.”
Fascinating stuff. I urge to you read the article.
