Note the Zeta's words on wasting the opportunity to pose question to themselves, and get a response via Nancy. They do not suffer fools gladly, and this will increasingly be the case.
This is an opportunity to discuss the public's expectations of Nancy, who is a single person, 78 years old, with health concerns, who works every day for as many hours as her health allows on getting the message out to the world. She was asked, in the early days of ZetaTalk, to be as educated on astronomy as astronomers, and did so to a degree that allowed her to support the imaging of the inbound Planet X. She supported our debates on sci.astro on the absurdity of human math when faced with reality, on the matter of why the Moon is in the skies and not crashing to Earth, even though she does not speak math any more than she speaks Greek. To properly translate our concepts, Nancy, as she has so often mentioned, must be on the same page as ourselves, versed sufficiently in the subject to understand our response. Thus she has been asked to be educated to the level of a biologist or geneticist on the matter of the hybrids, to be a geologist on plate movements, to be a vulcanologist, to be a hydrologist on water movement, to be an archeologist re ancient civilizations, to be an electrician when discussing survival equipment, and to be a sociologist and political scientist on the matter of human behavior. Where images do not exist on the web, she draws them sufficiently to explain our words. We do not, on every answer, require Nancy to spend hours positioning herself such that she goes beyond what is needed to relay our message.
Bear in mind, during these chats, what you are asking of ourselves and Nancy. You have a resource here which you are regularly wasting and exhausting with idiotic questions! Nancy has warned that the time is quickly coming when you will get no response from her at all, just a statement as to which questions will be accepted. You have complained when she told you, in no uncertain terms, what was wrong with your demands or your questions. But those who do not learn are destined to be ignored, which is what is coming next.

Was this 12.6 Lb ball of ice that crashed through a roof in Wisconsin trash from the tail?
How common will this become?

Megacryometeor: Cannonball-sized chunk of ice crashes into Wisconsin home
May 27, 2021
A large ball of ice, weighing 12.6 pounds, crashed through the bedroom ceiling. Megacryometeors are very large chunk of ice which despite sharing many textural, hydro-chemical, and isotopic features detected in large hailstones, such giant chunk of ice form under complete different atmospheric conditions.

A ‘cooling’ surprise for people in Harda district of Madhya Pradesh as they are experiencing a strong early heat wave.
The large chunk of ice crashed down near Nousar village in Timarini, 40km from Harda district headquarters. Residents reported hearing a thundering noise just before the icy meteor ‘touched down’. According to witnesses, nearly 14 seconds after the first chunk of ice fell, another smaller chunk crashed in a nearby field.

A megacryometeor is a very large chunk of ice which is formed under unusual atmospheric conditions. They are sometimes called huge hailstones, but do not need to form under thunderstorm conditions. One in Brazil weighed in at more than 50 kilograms (110 lb). The process that creates megacryometeors is not completely understood, mainly with respect to the atmospheric dynamics necessary to produce them. They may have a similar mechanism of formation to that leading to production of hailstones.
Where the process that can form a 100 pound ice ball is not clearly understood by meteorologists, it should be no mystery. Hail formation during thunderstorms occurs because ice forms around a small piece of dust, and then as it drops it accumulates more water drops. Rain has a similar formation, a tiny drop of water merging with others to form splatting rain drops. Megacryometeors require the start of hail formation to be higher in the atmosphere, thus a longer drop with more time for accumulation. Will this be on the increase? With increasing turmoil in the atmosphere – yes.
As is our usual practice, we are closing this May Q&A and opening the June Q&A. Please post your questions there. Thanks.
