Earthquakes are slamming Alaska today as the Solar Storm continues to pummel the earth with geomagnetic activity. 

This morning a Magnitude 6.3 Earthquake struck the  ANDREANOF ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN IS., ALASKA. at 2010 August 04 12:58:24 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010znbf.php

6.3M is nothing to shake a stick at. 

HAARP’s magnetometers were fairly calm until the start of the solar storm, kicked off by Sunspot 1052.  It is now picking up significant anomalies in the magnetosphere.  The three traces represent mutually orthogonal components of the earth’s magnetic field as follows:

  • The “H” component (black trace) is positive magnetic northward
  • The “D” component (red trace) is positive eastward
  • The “Z” component (blue trace) is positive downward

HAARP Magnetometer Chain

Real-time monitoring of the Earth’s magnetic field, Data for research and practical application from USGS  is showing major spikes from Alaska all the way to Guam. You can view the real time data at  http://geomag.usgs.gov/realtime/, which supposedly demonstrates a wide dispersal of geomagnetic energy affecting far apart distances. 

As we grab for our tinfoil hat, the Station- CMO Fairbanks, AK, located at 25.13°/212.14° at 197 meters, went OFFLINE BEFORE the quake hit.  It was picked up at almost all reporting stations including as far as the station at SJG, Cayey, PR,71.89°/293.85°, 424 meters.

Scientifically,we are under a solar storm alert, all be it, a supposed minor one.   http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/SWN/index.html NOAA Alerts / Bulletins
Latest Alert: Aug 04 1032 UTC ALERT: Geomagnetic K-index of 5.  Yesterday in was an index of 4.

Spacequakes have been going on for sometime in our universe, but now we have a model prediction thanks to the satellites circling the Sun. 

In 2007, THEMIS discovered the precursors of spacequakes. The action begins in Earth’s magnetic tail, which is stretched out like a windsock by the million-miles-per-hour solar wind. Sometimes the tail can become so stretched and tension-filled, it snaps back like an over-torqued rubber band.

Solar wind plasma trapped in the tail hurtles toward Earth. On more than one occasion, the five THEMIS spacecraft were in the line of fire when these “plasma jets” swept by. Clearly, the jets were going to hit Earth. But what would happen then? The fleet moved closer to the planet to find out.

“Now we know,” said THEMIS project scientist David Sibeck of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. “Plasma jets trigger spacequakes.”

According to THEMIS, the jets crash into the geomagnetic field some 18,600 miles (30,000 km) above Earth’s equator. The impact sets off a rebounding process, in which the incoming plasma actually bounces up and down on the reverberating magnetic field, akin to a tennis ball bouncing up and down on a carpeted floor. The first bounce is a big one, followed by bounces of decreasing amplitude as energy is dissipated in the carpet.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/yahoocanada/100728/canada/violent_spacequakes_shake_earth_from_above

If plasma bounces up and down on the reverberating magnetic field after it crashes someplace above the equator, could it have bounced on over to Alaska to cause this earthquake and the one earlier today- Magnitude 6.4 – EASTERN NEW GUINEA REG, PAPUA NEW GUINEA,  2010 August 04 07:15:33 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010znav.php?

That’s a pretty big bounce.

If the satellites can observe CME’s from the Sun, is there nothing NASA has available to track where the plasma impact occurs on Earth? 

Could this solar alert provide a perfect covert opportunity for advanced weapons experiments using SCALAR weapons?  What are the chances that a station goes off line in the vicinity of an earthquake before one hits?  Could HAARP have fired a beam up to heat the ionosphere causing the quake?

What of Accelerator-based experiments shooting particles through the Earth? A solar storm is the perfect storm to attempt some new experiment that could cause of quakes and disruptions.

The neutrinos are generated at CERN when a proton beam from the Super Proton Synchrotron strikes a target, producing pions and kaons. These quickly decay, giving rise mainly to νμ that pass unhindered through the Earth’s crust towards Gran Sasso. The appearance and subsequent decay of a τ in the OPERA experiment would provide the telltale sign of νμ to ντ oscillation through a charged-current interaction. http://cerncourier.com/cws/article/cern/43178

Recall that the San Grasso Lab was almost ground zero for the Italy Quake!

While this solar storm seems minor, millions of people are getting there first opportunity to see the aurora borealis with a wider than normal viewing area depending on the weather

Auroral Activity Extrapolated from NOAA POES

With all that energy, could a wormhole form due to the magnetic properties of the north pole, interacting with the solar winds?  Shall we send our politicians for a look?

While Alaska and New Guinea are rattling, finally at BP at the  Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill in The Gulf of Mexico, “claimed “a significant milestone” in efforts to plug a leaking well for good on Wednesday ahead of a U.S. government report that will show most of the spilled crude is already gone.

“The good news is that the vast majority of the oil appears to be gone,” Carol Browner said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

 A New York Times story said the report would show three-quarters of the oil released has already evaporated, dispersed, been captured or eliminated. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/reuters/100804/n_top_news/cnews_us_oil_spill

This too shall pass.  Until the next disaster, earthquake, experiment, etc.

As a Solar Storm is heading to Earth, the conspiracy rattles on with reports of high magnitude earthquakes and unusual Magnetometer chart readings from HAARP and USGS. 

Magnitude 5.3 – SOUTHWEST OF SUMATRA, INDONESIA 2010 August 03 08:03:18 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmat.php

Magnitude 5.0 – OFFSHORE TARAPACA, CHILE  2010 August 03 05:29:21 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmaq.php

Magnitude 6.3 – MOLUCCA SEA 2010 August 03 12:08:26 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zma4.html

Magnitude 5.4 – TAJIKISTAN 2010 August 03 16:26:27 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmbf.php

Yadda, yadda.  There are earthquakes everyday, but it is not everyday that the Sun hurls giant Coronal Mass Ejections towards the Earth’s magnetosphere.  On August 1st, a flare, shockwave, filament eruption and CME erupted on the Earth-facing side of the sun.  The CME is heading directly for us — see the SOHO video of the CME.  The storms arrival time? August 3rd, 2010, TODAY.

Solar Sunspot 1092. Image: Oleg Toumilovitch, July 31st, rising over Blairgowrie, South Africa.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the NASA/ESA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) detected the C3-class solar flare, sunspot #1092.

After sunset,  look west and you will see Venus, Saturn, and Mars have converged to form a triangle.  You will also see the Summer Triangle – technically an asterism, rather than a constellation – formed by the stars Vega, Altair and Deneb.  (https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/08/01/illuminati-triangle-in-the-sky/)  

Scientists said residents of northern regions — possibly including Seattle, as well as parts of Michigan and Maine — may see an unusual display of the aurora borealis, the northern lights. http://www.mercurynews.com/top-stories/ci_15661076?nclick_check=1

NOAA forecasters estimated a 10% chance of major geomagnetic storms and a 45% chance of at least some geomagnetic activity when the clouds arrive on August 3rd and 4th. via http://spaceweather.com/  Wouldn’t you like nearly 50% odds of hitting the lottery? 

Translation, we’ve got a 50% chance that we’re going to have some geomagnetic activity that may or may not cause satellite interference and communications malfunctions here on earth.   The earth, so delicately balanced also relies on the magnetosphere and ionosphere to protect it from upheaval.  NOAA / Space Weather Prediction Center reassures us all is calm, all is bright, all is all right.

Alerts / Bulletins
Latest Alert: Aug 03 1827 UTC WARNING: Geomagnetic K-index of 4 expected
Last Advisory Bulletin: None in last 7 days.

It would seem likely that if the Earth’s atmospheric magnets are going out of whack so is the Earth, and possibly the cause of an increase in earthquakes and volcanoes.

The scientists will tell you about plate tectonics causing earthquakes.  Most recently is a new theory out of  Purdue University.

Earthquakes, “came from stored stress built up in the Earth’s crust long ago…Our theory links an external climate-driven process, the melting of the ice sheet, and earthquakes…Unfortunately, this stored stress is invisible to us.” via US News & World Report Science at  http://ht.ly/18pBTL

That’s one theory.  No matter, all the Earth’s Observatories should be in ready, set, go, mode to record some impressive atmospheric activity..

We’ve asked  it time and time again if the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP), is a scientific advance of  knowledge or a system of destruction capable of causing earthquakes, tsunami, and otherwise “natural disasters?” https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/18/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-haarp-patents-arecibo/.  What about EISCAT, SURA and the worlds other large arrays?  Do you think they only receive and not emit?

The Arecibo Observatory is the largest and most sensitive radiotelescope.  It sits atop the seismically active Puerto Rico Trench, and ever so close to Haiti.    You can download data from the Arecibo dual-frequency ASHTECH MicroZ-CGRS GPS receiver and high quality choke-ring antenna.  http://www.naic.edu/aisr/GPSTEC/gpstec.html.   Sadly, it offers no real time data and is only up to releasing the 90th day of the year’s activity. A lot of good that does for now.

What are the volcano’s doing?  The  SI / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report  doesn’t come out until tomorrow.   http://www.volcano.si.edu/reports/usgs/

Would ya look at those Spikes in the last hour or so!  The impressive thing is that the spikes are being picked up at ALL of the Stations.  http://geomag.usgs.gov/realtime/

Let’s have a look at what our tax dollars are buying at HAARP.

HAARP Fluxgate Magnetometer, August 3, 2010.

The chart above is a running 36 hour plot of the readings taken from the fluxgate magnetometer, built by the University of Alaska, Geophysical Institute, operating at the HAARP ionospheric observatory in Gakona, Alaska. The three traces represent mutually orthogonal components of the earth’s magnetic field as follows:

  • The “H” component (black trace) is positive magnetic northward
  • The “D” component (red trace) is positive eastward
  • The “Z” component (blue trace) is positive downward

Hmmm, looks like a split in the road between the red and the black.  We have never seen such an anomaly at the same time.  There is only one positive North.  Here something is creating two positives at the same time.

Is that possible?  We are positively confused.

More confusing, shortly after uploading these graphs, lo and behold, another earthquake. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmby.php

The Ejyafjallajokull Volcano in Iceland continues it’s eruption with an increase in earthquakes and ash, once again causing air travel disruption.  The Earth has just been hit by a solar storm, there is a new Sunspot capable of producing massive CME’s, and there is an Eta Aquarids meteor shower today at 4:49 GMT.       

 …increased earthquake activity beneath Eyjafjallajökull has been recorded. Precise locations of the earthquakes show that their source is at first very deep, at about 23 km depth, but then migrates upwards. This strongly indicates that “new” magma is intruding into the magma conduit and pushing on the over-lying magma, causing a difference in pressure at the surface. It is therefore anticipated that the eruption will continue at FULL FORCE in the next days.        

Significant changes in horizontal movement at GPS stations around Eyjafjallajökull have been observed in the last 48 hours.  Sourced from Iceland Met Office Update on May 5, 2010.         

Besides significant GPS movements the earthquakes are increasing in Magnitude today-       

  • Magnitude less than 1:  0
  • Magnitude 1 to 2:  19
  • Magnitude 2 to 3:  8
  • Magnitude more than 3:  0
  • Total: 27

Iceland’s Volcanic activity today is relatively calm compared to other corner’s of the world.

Yet, the world turns. The Iceland Review is reporting a “A bluish mist or gas has been seen rising into the air at Gígjökull, an Ejyafjallajokull glacial tongue, where the lava from the volcano is flowing. The mist is believed to be connected with the lava flow.       

strong>UNKNOWN GAS CONNECTED TO LAVA FLOW?   

  

May 4 Eruption 11:00:03 GMT

   Vulcanologist have been study long enough to know what to expect.  We’ve all heard the predictions that no one can predict anything, but who would predict that with in about an half  and a half , the white gas like substance has dissipated in these time stamped photos from Google.   How long has it taken for the ash to dissipate the airspace in Europe?  Oh, that’s right,  IT HAS NOT.    

There has been something…lava or water, flowing out of the keyhole portion of the glacier since the original eruption.  We have seen nothing anywhere near this amount of haze until now.        

 

The "cloud" is mostly gone by 12:49:36 GMT, and the Sun is Shining!

The Civil Protection Department has created a huge of a restricted area which can be seen here. http://almannavarnir.is/upload/files/Eyjafjallajokull_bannsvaedi_27042010.pdf        

No matter that it is a restricted area, at 15:39:58 this guy stopped to do whatever.  It must not bee too cold up there, the guys wearing shorts standing in the middle of a glacial flow of liquid.    

Nothing to see here, move along. Time for dinner, 15:39:58 GMT.

GRAB YOUR TINFOIL HAT!  During the first of the major eruptions most of Europe was grounded by ash and particles in the sky.  Whatever this gas is- or was, stayed close to the ground eventually blocking out the entire volcanic area.  Aren’t silica particle supposed to go up, damaging plane engines?  Yet this gas is eerily on the ground like a fog machine on Halloween.     

Is there something to hide in all that gas under the auspice of another eruption?     

HAARP? Could a government be running HAARP like tests, zapping the volcano with it’s ionospheric heat beam that, if you don’t know exists by now, you can find the HAARP home page all by yourself.  Perhaps EISCAT or any of the other arrays in the area?  

Weather Modification? Could the gas cloud have been a weather modification attempt? We know that weather modification has been banned by a U.N. Treaty, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.  In the United States silver iodide has been injected into clouds by airplanes and from the ground for years. In the Rocky Mountains and Sierra Nevada it has been used for decades.  pdf-http://www.energy.ca.gov/2007publications/CEC-500-2007-008/CEC-500-2007-008.PDF,    

    

A LASER BEAM, not Lightning? Ah, the beauty of a lightning storm over a volcano.  Looks pretty cool, until one realizes that a laser could be used to discharge lightning to attempt to deprive a cloud of energy.  It is usually associated in the case of hurricanes, but perhaps in this case- a volcano.   
 
A liquid nitrogen cloud?  Perhaps someone came up with the idea of pouring liquid nitrogen into the volcano to try to calm it down by freezing the crater to death.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liquid_nitrogen Liquid nitrogen is odourless, colourless and tasteless.  No one would be the wiser if it were used to try to cool magma.  
 
Where’s the Plinian events?  On April 24, 2010, the smoking volcano Eyjafjallajokull shows rainbow-like shockwaves belching from the crater like snakes from a can of nuts.  Nothing to fear, though, it’s merely the aftereffects of Plinian events reported FOX NEWS via https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/04/24/iceland-volcano-visible-shockwaves-ufo/  

The after effects of SOLAR STORM? A high-speed solar wind stream hit Earth’s magnetic field last night (May 2-3), sparking a geomagnetic storm that lasted more than 15 hours. In Scandinavia, the Northern Lights were so bright they could be seen through the glow of the midnight sun. Red auroras spilled across the Canadian border and were spotted in several US states.      

FAST-GROWING SUNSPOT: New sunspot 1069 didn’t exist yesterday. Today it is growing rapidly (movie) with several dark, planet-sized cores and a complex magnetic field that harbors energy for C- and M-class solar flares. Readers with solar telescopes are encouraged to monitor developments.  http://spaceweather.com.    

Strange sighting on April 23, 2010

ALIENS ‘n UFO’s?  What’s an article on conspiracy without the aliens and ufo’s?  Could this unidentified gas be some sort of spent fuel from a UFO?  Perhaps the aliens just needed a walk to study the volcano?  Could a fleet of UFO’s have laid a gas cover to escape or get into an underground location?    

 

For a more scientific approach read http://www.icenews.is/index.php/2010/05/05/geologist-answers-iceland-volcano-questions/

As for now, unknown gases will apparently remain exactly that- unknown.  

What we do know is that: The 2010 Eta Aquarid meteor shower will peak on the morning of May 6, 2010. Stargazers should however see nearly as many meteors on the mornings of May 5 and May 7. The full range of the Eta Aquarid meteor shower is from about April 21 to May 12. Stargazers who have cloudy nights during the peak might therefore be able to observe a few Eta Aquarid meteors a few nights after the peak.   

Our preferred listening suggestion for today-  

Two Suns In The Sunset from Pink Floyd-  

In my rear view mirror the sun is going down
sinking behind bridges in the road
and i think of all the good things
that we have left undone
and i suffer premonitions
confirm suspicions
of the holocaust to come
the wire that holds the cork
that keeps the anger in
gives way
and suddenly it’s day again
the sun is in the east
even though the day is done
two suns in the sunset
hmmmmmmm
could be the human race is run
like the moment when your brakes lock
and you slide toward the big truck
and stretch the frozen moments with your fear
and you’ll never hear their voices
and you’ll never see their faces
you have no recourse to the law anymore
and as the windshield melts
my tears evaporate
leaving only charcoal to defend
finally i understand
the feelings of the few
ashes and diamonds
foe and friend
we were all equal in the end. http://www.lyricsdomain.com/16/pink_floyd/two_suns_in_the_sunset.html
  

Lastly — sorry about the text size issues- WPress html not cooperating. cest la vie, bigger things to worry about.

Sunspot-space station conjunction

The Space Station was caught on film in orbit over sunspot 1057! 

Yesterday in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, astrophotographer John Stetson and his son Peter observed a very rare event–a sunspot-space station conjunction. 

“We knew when to look thanks to a prediction from CalSky,” says Stetson. “The International Space Station transited the solar disk in only 0.62 seconds. We managed to catch the station’s silhouette just as it was passing sunspot 1057.” Stetson has been photographing solar transits for years; he ranks this one as “the best yet.”  As far as we know, this is the first time the ISS has been observed in conjunction with a big sunspot. via http://spaceweather.com/.

If you are so inclined to track the ISS yourself you will have to go to http://spaceflight1.nasa.gov/realdata/tracking/index.html.-  NASA no longer tracks it.

Heaven’s Above http://www.heavens-above.com/ does not appear to be so private.  It is hosted by Space Operations and Astronaut Training
DLR Space Operations, the central institution for spaceflight operations in Germany. http://www.dlr.de/rb/en/

The Expedition 23 crew members aboard the International Space Station were busy Thursday with an emergency Soyuz descent training drill and preparations for the arrival of space shuttle Discovery and the STS-131 crew…. Discovery and the STS-131 crew are targeted to launch to the station on April 5, bringing a multi-purpose logistics module filled with science racks for the station’s laboratories.  http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/main/index.html 

The really cool thing would have been if the ISS snapped a picture up close of the solar spot. Even better, zoomed in on the coordinates and location of the photographers on earth and taken their picture, taking their picture!

Can they do that?  Terra Server http://www.terraserver.com/ and Google Earth http://earth.google.com/ are pretty good at it and so are governments.

The code named Kennan “Keyhole-class” (KH) reconnaissance satellites have been orbiting the Earth for more than 30 years. They are typically used to take overhead photos for military missions. The big question for a lot of people is: “What can they see?”

A KH-12 is a $1 billion satellite that resembles the Hubble Space Telescope, except it is looking at our planet. For security reasons, there are no published orbit schedules for the imagery spacecraft. They are supplemented by the 15-ton Lacrosse-class radar-imaging satellites…They have an imaging resolution of 5-6 inches, which means they can see something 5 inches or larger on the ground. These satellites probably can’t read your house number, but they can tell whether there is a bike parked in your driveway. http://science.howstuffworks.com/question529.htm

Translation- all is calm for now as no space weather storms are expected for the next 24 hours.

March 19, 2010 was a different story, at least for Earth.

This photo is a still taken from a NASA Allsky camera video taken of a meteor fireball over western Alabama on March 19, 2010. The meteor was about the size of a soccer ball and completely incinerated before reaching the ground, scientists say.

A bright fireball that lit up the sky above parts of Alabama last week  was caught by NASA cameras as it streaked over the southeastern United States. 

The fireball was caused by the death plunge of a meteor about the size of a soccer ball as it burned up in Earth’s atmosphere on Friday, March 19, at 11:19 p.m. local time while flying over western Alabama. Two NASA cameras, one based at the agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., recorded a the meteor’s fiery demise as it happened. http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/03/25/nasa-camera-catches-fireball-alabama/

Pretty good photo, eh?  A good explanation too, but what are all those other bright white lights on the right side of the earth?  UFO’s, asteroids, meteors, other satellites…?

The next meteor shower is the Lyrids on April 21. The Moon is just past first quarter, so it sets around 3 or 4 a.m., providing several hours of meteor watching before dawn. http://stardate.org/nightsky/meteors/

Keep looking up.
