The reason I continue on with posts about Cloud G2 is because I believe that stellar explosions may have been a major cause and trigger of past events on Earth throughout its history, as I mentioned in my article 'Galactic Stellar Explosions - The trigger events behind 2012' back in December 2012.
Within this article here, I will go over the details of when Cloud G2 will reach the galactic core, where and what the galactic core is, what is inside the actual Cloud G2 and the repercussions around what may happen if Cloud G2 succumbs to tidal stripping by the black hole at the galactic core.
"What we are about to experience in a few months may be thought of as a cosmic game of Galactic pinball." - Paul LaViolette
Paul LaViolette posted an update on Cloud G2 earlier in January, 2014. He said that he believes there is a star within this cloud and that this star possibly has a companion star. He rates the chance of there being a second star at around 50%. He is however 100% certain that there is a companion object, so if the second object is not a star then he believes its going to be a giant planet such as the size of Jupiter for example, or a brown dwarf companion.
Paul LaViolette reports that the size of the initial star within Cloud G2 is between 1 solar mass and 30 solar masses. How large is that? Our sun is estimated at about 2 solar masses. So its not exactly small by any means.
The gas Cloud G2 is moving towards Sagittarius A* which is located at the center of the Milk Way Galaxy near the border of the constellations Sagittarius and Scorpius and within a larger astronomical feature known as Sagittarius A.
Note the difference here of Sagittarius with and without the asterix, otherwise this can get confusing.
It is believed that Sagittarius A consists of three components. The supernova remnant Sagittarius A East, the spiral structure Sagittarius A West, and a very bright compact radio source at the center of the spiral of Sagittarius A*.

Sagittarius A* is believed to contain a super massive black hole and Cloud G2 is going to be closest to this black hole around March to April 2014. This date could easily change, as it has changed a number of times over the past year, but I wouldn't expect the change to be more than four weeks either side.
Paul LaViolette mentions that he thinks it is a possibility that tidal stripping may occur when Cloud G2 reaches the closest point to the black hole within Sagittarius A*. Tidal stripping is when a larger galaxy pulls stars and other stellar material from a smaller galaxy. Paul LaViolette has said there is a possibility that a core explosion could be caused by the tidal stripping, which would result in a galactic superwave that could impact upon our solar system.
The repercussions of such a superwave impacting our solar system could be seen as a trigger for a number of various events, which includes the area of earth changes and in my personal opinion, shifts in consciousness, because of the extra energies impacting us at such a time.
Paul LaViolette has said that once we see the Cloud G2 divide and reach the galactic core / black hole, and if a mass splits off from it, we will only have two to three weeks before the mass reaches the core surface and triggers a stellar explosion. So he thinks we should keep close watch should something be about to happen at that moment.
One question may be left in our mind that needs answering. That question being about how long it would it take for the energies of a stellar explosion to reach Earth? Paul LaViolette predicts that the gravity wave would reach Earth within the same day of a core explosion, which would be a cause foe seismic disturbances on Earth, and the cosmic rays would arrive from one to two days later after the event.
I will finish off with this information that Paul LaViolette posted back on November the 7th 2012, on his site, which provides some scientific evidence towards these stellar explosion events matching up with the cycles of the Mayan Calendar/Astrological Ages.
"As noted in an October 2013 Starburst Foundation news posting, recent analysis of tree ring records and ice core Be-10 and acidity profiles has confirmed the occurrence of eight of 13 minor superwave events that were predicted to have impacted Earth in the past 5300 years. I had originally predicted the dates of these events back in 1983. Based on the terrestrial record I find that most of these were brief events lasting less than a year, with the exception of the event occurring in 5300 years ago. Interestingly, this earlier moderate superwave occurred just prior to the emergence of Nile Delta civilization and the commencement of the most recent Mayan calendar cycle."
