For reasons that I can't fully explain, I have subscribed to an earthquake alert program that sends me email notifications of quakes in the notorious Ring of Fire area of the globe. You can subscribe to Earthquake Notification yourself, if you're interested in receiving notices that pop up to remind you the earth is alive and changing all the time. You can register by area, seismic power, or other variables that suit your particular need to know.
Then, I heard on the radio, that there are two asteroids that are approaching an apogee flyby with earth. Most asteroids in the solar system orbit within the Saturn-Jupiter belt. Near-Earth asteroids are those whose orbits approach or cross the Earth's orbit. Accordingly, there is also, if you are curious, an asteroid watch site with startling information about the heavens we dwell within. I don't believe my curiosity is morbid, though. I think it's a good idea to reach beyond the ordinary internal landscape and consider the possibilities.
