Starting in around AD 534, and continuing at least until 550, there was a major cooling in global climate, followed by famine, plagues, mass migration and war in Mesopotamia, China and the British Isles.

Vesta is visually the brightest, at the limit of naked-eye visibility when it’s overtaken by Earth. About the size of Arizona, in the southern hemisphere it has a huge crater 465 km across and 12 km deep, as wide as Vesta itself; the equivalent on Earth would be the size of the Pacific basin. More than 50 smaller asteroids with similar compositions, ‘Vestoids,’ were formed in the collision, and many fragments blasted off it make up a family of asteroids [3]. Some of them reach Earth as meteorites.

If many of them are fragile objects, less threatening than their 1–10 km diameters would imply, then the situation might not be too bad. On the other hand, as ice sublimes off, the comets may form a protective crust of dust that can close over altogether, shielding a substantial mass of ice inside [40]. It seems that Encke’s Comet may have been inactive until 1786, although it had been in its present short-period orbit since much earlier [41]. Dead comets have now been identified in the asteroid belt, and the near-Earth ‘asteroid’ Don Quixote has turned out to be one, so Earth-grazers masquerading as fluffy dust balls may actually 16 Incoming Asteroid!
