there is one other SLIM chance it was,,

"meteorite shower"

"The specific comet whose particles will be seen Friday is called 209P/LINEAR."

it is in the area,,,

quote
"The meteor shower is expected to be seen in various parts of the globe tomorrow and Saturday, but because this is a new shower, it may exceed the time forecast by scientists. According to Maoz, if the shower rains down 200 meteors per hour, as astronomers at NASA expect, it will be as least as strong as the Perseids meteor showers that occur in August, which rain an average of 80 meteorites an hour. However, this would not make it a particularly intense shower, he said. "We have seen some very strong meteor showers in the Leonid showers (that occur in November). In 1999, the pace reached thousands of meteorites an hour. But it's hard to predict these things in advance, and we could be surprised."

Anything is possible,,,

proof,,

Maybe the people detecting it are trying to work it diplomatically before the worlds media gets into a spin!

Maybe its Japan testing a nuke?

definately looks lke a mushroom cloud. Wouldnt a volcanoes ash plume / cloud go higher and be thicker? larger?

Did Japan finally clip the USS Steve Irwin ?

I hope not .. ..

Who knows when this picture was taken. Could be growing still. It appears to be only a picture, and not video. The vids are of people reporting on the picture.

I'm pretty positive that if it were a nuke, it would be on the news somewhere else by now. That's a big deal.


And I am positive they would try to keep it secret, unless so many people saw and filmed it that they have no choice but go public.

Did it make the news when North Korea set off a nuke in 2006?

The USGS is not reporting any earthquakes over 2.5 in the area within the last 24 hours.

USGS Earthquake Map

I am not an expert, but I would expect seismic activity in the area if it was a volcanic eruption. I would expect seismic activity from an explosion as well, but I have heard (on ATS) in the past that the USGS scrubs seismographic readings that turn out to be large explosions rather than earthquakes. Hmmmm...

If it was a nuke, wouldnt there be a tsunami? or a shockwave if it was an airburst?

Lets say it was a small nuke like .02 KT. or less...Wouldnt the resulting explosion still be large enough to leave a radiation signature that could be measured for at least the next 3 days? Arent there all sorts of sensors and radiation monitoring equipment in place due to the reactor problems Japan has been having for some time now?

I think the plethora of people carrying geiger counters in Japan would have already picked this up depending on wind direction.

I just dont think its a nuke. Japan isnt exactly blacked out from the internet. We would have heard about it by now or in the next 12 hours from other sources.

It could be a hoax too.

Too early to tell. I am tempted to take a little drive and see if there is any activity and that location I mentioned in my first post of this this thread.

I agree, the cloud in the Japanese news report looks more volcanic then nuclear. Weird that it's not being reported on any of the big channels, nor anything being reported about volcanic/earthquake/tsunami warnings.

The Japan Newsand Japan Today aren't reporting anything either. This looks suspect to me.


***ADDED INFORMATION***


The Kume Island are part of the Okinawa Islands which are under Japanese Authority, but hold a strong US Military presence. If this was a Nuclear blast it would be all over the news somewhere, and it's not.

It this a screen cap from the new Godzilla flick that somebody is using to HOAX?

Hi guys first ever post on ATS
Just had a look at the earthquake map on quakes.globalincidentmap.com...
Absolutely nothing around Japan today
in my opinion if it was a volcano wouldn't it cause some sort of earth tremor?
Keep us posted please

The RSOE EDI isn't reporting any incidents around Kume Island, and i suspect that they would if anything popped up. They seem to be reliable in emergency instances and other situations.

hisz.rsoe.hu...

I went looking through Google also, and set the search tools to 'past 24 hours'. The only sites reporting about this are questionable pages such as Before Its News, and other unknown sites...

As for the actual mushroom cloud itself, who knows what it is. My first thought would be a volcanic eruption, as it seems to be the most logical - but nothing is being reported on official emergency and activity sites.

I do not think it is a nuke... i think it would have been obvious by now if it indeed was...

Perhaps China or other neighbouring countries are playing war games?

S&F!


If it was a nuke and it was detonated deep below the surface of the water then the fast neutrons that generally escape and can be detected by satellites ... would have been absorbed by the seawater which is a very good shielding medium for neutron radiation.

I speculate that it may have been a NK plastic submarine carrying a nuclear weapon and that something has gone wrong and it has detonated too soon whilst underway to a viable target like a major Japanese port or harbor.

Even if that happened, it still would have registered on some warning device (volcanic/earthquake/tsunami), but it's not.

China and Russia are currently undergoing military exercises in the East China Sea. Japan is also engaging in some exercises around the area.



More information:


Seoul formally protested joint naval drills by China and Russia in the East China Sea that intruded into Korea’s air defense identification zone (Kadiz).

According to the Korean Ministry of National Defense on Tuesday, the training area for the military exercises conducted by Beijing and Moscow partly overlapped with the Korean and Japanese ADIZs. Seoul was barely given any prior notice. This is the first time Beijing carried out such military drills in the region since Korea expanded its ADIZ last December.


english.hani.co.kr...

Information from the Chinese government itself:


SHANGHAI, May 21 (ChinaMil) -- The China-Russia "Joint Sea-2014" military exercise was officially launched on May 20, 2014. Eight "Flying Leopard" (JH-7) warplanes from a regiment of China's naval aviation force participating in this exercise will play the "Blue Force", and they are all ready for battle, the reporter learned from the regiment.


eng.mod.gov.cn...

I am confident in saying that i believe the mushroom cloud of which we are seeing, has its origins in the current war games between Russia and China.

it really doesn't look like a nuclear detonation.....the smoke cloud looks all wrong.

not to mention, there was no report of a blinding light when it went off...it really doesn't seem to fit the profile of a typical nuclear detonation...

maybe a volcano, or an oil tanker went up, or some other suitably large vessel....

Great...more crap debris coming from japan.....will tag this for later.

www.theguardian.com... could it be something like this? an underwater volcano close to the surface (so the smoke comes out from the sea)

Now Im really starting to question this too..

Has anyone seen Godzilla yet? And if so, is the clip of the japanese reporter in it? Because, I cant even verify that video.
