The sky at night (meteors, Iridium flares, the moon)

Seeing it from full scale, angle; it is a partial chemtrail. It certainly does not just disappear behind the darker cloud.

I have spent a couple of years sudying these overhead and these small spurts tend to be dispersed on the return trip, when, I take it that their tanks of whatever ungodly pollutant are all but empty.

If you keep your eyes open you'll see them; always from white unmarked jets usually two or more at a time high enough to make no sound whatsoever. sometimes I have seen them fly parallel, with the one at greater Altitude leaving no trail or switching them on then off, which alone blows away the lies they spout about how contrails make these things.

 

It's a whole new world up there, going on right over your head, under your noses and behind your back.

 

The reasons could be one and many; Weather manipulation, geo-engineering, global warming agenda, barium to attack your immune system and for those handy upper respiratory conditions, in tandem with high Frequency Active Auroral Research Programs...etc,etc,etc.

 

I doubt they'll be telling Tavish Scott about it and they sure wont be telling me so you'll have to do your own figuring out but don't think it's no big deal for a second. These things don't run cheap and they're not going to miss out on a profit.

 

Same old story; the bigger the lie the easier the general sheeple will fall for it. Herd mentality is a powerful incentive and if no one you know is seeing it, then there can't be anything to worry about, can there?

It's not as if people would be up to anything bad up there, is it?

 

I'm sure we'd have heard about it on the telly if there was something going on. :lol:

 

Oh, and no, they don't just blow away on a windy day. These gits are smart enough to know what height to go to lace the sky for maximum effect.

 

P.S (from the first pic) the upper end appears reddish where it is behind the darker cloud but if you notice there is a piece of blue sky before the rest of the main cloud body and with no trail in it as spraying was shut off sharp.

Or perhaps they just turn off the engines and glide over the clouds to cut down on their carbon footprints. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ok, Koy. Alternative theory.

 

Missile test.

 

There's a military exercise going on at the moment in this general area (that's what all the low flying tornados were all about last week). That photo looks to me like a vapour trail from a SAM, probably from a warship. If it was going straight up that would account for the short trail as it passes through the layer in the atmosphere where the vapour/temperature conditions are right to produce a trail. :wink:

So trooter was the only person (in all of Shetland) able to see this phenomena.

I am sure there are many theories some very plausible, some ridiculous.

For what it's worth, here are my possibilities:

 

1 - It's all the fault of the Americans.

They have gone and found water on the Moon and now they have upset the little buggars that live up there and this might be some kind of initial response.

2 - The SNP Government could be testing Scotland's Defence Umbrella.

3 - The photo does not appear to have any known 'Provenance'.

It could mean therefore, that the photo was taken inside and a bird crapped on the window-pane outside. :mrgreen:

DOUBLE FLYBY ALERT: Space shuttle Atlantis undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) this morning at 4:53 am EST. Their separation sets the stage for double flybys of many towns and cities on Wednesday evening, Nov. 25th, when Atlantis and the ISS will soar through the night sky side by side--a fantastic sight. Atlantis is not scheduled to land until Friday morning, Nov. 27th, so the double apparitions will continue on Thursday, Nov. 26th, Thanksgiving in the United States. Check the Simple Satellite Tracker for flybys: http://spaceweather.com/flybys .

GEMINID METEOR SHOWER: This weekend, Earth will pass through a stream of debris from extinct comet 3200 Phaethon, source of the annual Geminid meteor shower. Forecasters expect more than 100 meteors per hour to fly out of the constellation Gemini when the shower peaks on Dec. 13th and 14th. For most observers, the best time to look will be from 10 pm local time on Sunday night to dawn on Monday morning.

The meteor shower was fairly good last night, might have a look tonight if the cloud clears. Last night they seemed to be hitting from all directions, all around the sky, some were bright enough to light the clouds below them, brightest one I saw was while driving! :shock:

BIG NEW SUNSPOT: Just yesterday, sunspot 1035 was nearly invisible. Today, it is as wide as seven planet Earths. The fast-growing active region burst into view on Dec. 14th with a magnetic polarity that clearly identifies it as a member of new Solar Cycle 24. If the expansion continues apace, it could soon become the largest sunspot of the year.

 

This should increase aura activities.... :D

Dec. 16th - CURIOUS EVENTS IN NEBRASKA

 

"Last night, Dec. 16th at 9 p.m. CST, a very bright meteor lit up the completely overcast sky like lightning in southeast Nebraska," reports Trooper Jerry Chab of the Nebraska State Patrol. "It flashed for approximately 2 seconds and was followed by sonic booms and ground shaking, which prompted many calls by the public to law enforcement in a three county wide area." Meanwhile, the USGS says there was a magnitude 3.5 earthquake near Auburn, Nebraska, at 8:53 pm, about the same time and place as the fireball. This map shows the nominal epicenter:

 

"If the earthquake is confirmed, as it appears to be, I think we have the most cosmic of coincidences: A large fireball around the same time of an earthquake," says Chab. "I am simply amazed!"

 

One possible interpretation of these events is that a small asteroid hit Earth's atmosphere and caused the ground to shake when it exploded in mid-air. However, the timing might not be right. The quake seems to have preceded the fireball.

Shockwave?

Coincidence?

 

Or maybe, just maybe...

 

The incoming high electric stress of the meteor, causing an electric discharge within the piezoelectric domains of the earths mantle.

SUNSPOT SURGE: 2009 is ending with a flurry of sunspots. The month of December has had more "spotted days" than any previous month of the year by a significant margin, and all of the month's sunspot groups have been members of new Solar Cycle 24. Could this herald an end to the deepest solar minimum in nearly a century? That remains to be seen. Sunspot counts and trends are shown on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com.

BLUE MOON ECLIPSE: For the first time in almost 20 years, there's going to be a "Blue Moon" on New Year's Eve. In Europe, sky watchers will witness an even rarer event--an eclipse of a Blue Moon on New Year's Eve. What are the odds? Probabilities and observing tips may be found at http://spaceweather.com.

I'm disapointed a Blue Moon is not actually blue

 

This might cheer you up then...

 

The trendy definition of "blue Moon" as the second full Moon in a month is a mistake.

 

The term "blue Moon" has been around a long time, well over 400 years, but its calendrical meaning has become widespread only in the last 20 years.

 

With help from Margaret Vaverek (Southwest Texas State University) and several other librarians, we have now obtained more than 40 editions of the Maine Farmers' Almanac from the period 1819 to 1962. These refer to more than a dozen Blue Moons, and not one of them is the second full Moon in a month.
