You know what I think about HAARP?

I think it's a scapegoat. Because I think they already have other systems that are far superior to HAARP and that the public doesn't even know about. No internet rumors, no barroom banter, no "Friend of a friend of a friend in the military said...."

Because they're more advanced than even we can comprehend.

Conspiracy theories are just that theories, meant to divert attention away from pertinent true issues.

As for my other post, my friend who lives in Minneapolis said on the 12th around that time it was raining then became stormy. I could not edit the post as I exceeded the 4 hour window.

I figured it was just a glitch but my brain immediately thought "HAARP!" so I took a screencap of it just for fun.


Just wondering why you would automatically think HAARP was the cause of the glitch you sctreencapped?

lol I think HAARP has become the new 'weather balloon' scapegoat to explain weather anomalies.


^Pretty much this. I didn't say I actually thought HAARP was the cause of it. I just saw a very strange looking formation and thought "well this is interesting. It looks like something I would see someone posting on ATS as proof of HAARP!"

We have seen these on ATS fairly often. The source can be anything from thermal inversion to the radars being switched to “clear air mode” (CLR).

radarscope.tv...

When there’s no precipitation in the area, it’s common for the radar to be operating in what is called “clear air mode.” In this mode, the radar is scanning more slowly so that it can be more sensitive and pick up much weaker returns. This allows it to see more details and detect finer particles in the atmosphere, including things like dust and insects.

You often get these rings in CLR mode.
Thermal inversion:

Look familure?


I believe this is the most convincing answer thus far, more so than birds, HAARP, or Dr. Doom experimenting with seismic shock wave devices. If you look up a NEXRAD site map, these points line up perfectly with the mysterious discs. This site is actually quite useful in helping to better understand radar imaging and returns. The clean air mode section explains how this mode is the slowest to update, which would explain why there are only certain sections being shown at a time (thus, bullseye effect) as the radar scans the different heights of the region. Also, if it was a solid object, your dbZ (reflectivity) value would be higher.

Well Rez, there was a fellow quite a few years ago that had a site devoted to just these strange radar rings and signatures. I wanna say his name was Doug Pooley but was so long ago, not sure. He is dead now, I know that. Anyhow, the rings that would get published on his site were varied and very unusual and even very vivid in colors like purple/pink/green/blue and so forth and some would last for days. He had researched those rings for a long time and had varied theories as to what the cause was...Even Scalar was mentioned I think.Very interesting and some of the speculations were scary/spooky and others scientific opinions...everything from a to z. Was interesting nevertheless. A lot of folks weren't so sure they were just harmless radar returns or glitches.

Anyway, you may be on to something as I see the "usual suspects" have popped up here to set you straight in their view, LOL. The theories and facts may vary but they are still very interesting. We had one here down south a while ago that lasted for days and was perfectly round and filled in and was in a variety of colors/shades of purple/blue/pink. Very vivid and long lasting. Then...poof, gone just like that. Anyhow, enjoyed your OP as always. There is nothing wrong with looking at the so called "normal" take on things and examining other possibilities or wondering about such things. Life must be so boring for folks that see everything in black and white always with no "gray" areas. LOL. "Gray" can be fun if nothing else. It never hurts to examine various aspects/facets of something that gives one pause.

I was able to find somewhat similar images online, and I also came across a thread, found HERE. The circles are somewhat similar. It seems that the best answers were cloud layers, or basically just normal atmospheric stuff.

Thanks Shreve, you're absolutely right, these guys take the fun out of it. It's as if we aren't supposed to question anything or be curious at all if we truly don't know. Or, better yet, we're supposed to be know-it-alls like themselves. How dumb of me not to fully comprehend how radar works.

Don't suppose the guy, Pooley, his site would still be up? I'd definitely like to read up on some of that. I'm not totally sold on some of these explanations given on this thread. Sure, it's obvious that the circles originate from the doppler locations. Each circle seems to be over a major population center, such as Sioux Falls, Des Moines, Mpls and the Quad Cities. But, that doesn't completely explain what was in the atmosphere to get such an odd radar return. If it was rain, why not read like the actual radar returns that show the storm areas? Even if it were very little precipitation, too little to show a normal return, it's still odd the way they appear. And, given that, like you said, a guy had site that examined these and had many different images and discussions about them, it remains mysterious.

Well put...

It's ALWAYS better to learn for yourself, through your own research. Taking in as much information as possible about a subject, before forming a belief.

Those who beat you up, for not taking their word for it, have forgotten what it was like, before they became all powerful, all-knowing interwebs entities...And, they should be ASHAMED of themselves, for it!

Always remember, it's the critical thinker, who makes the grandest discoveries...

Bizarre, its either fake. Or we have some very massive invisible objects staying pretty much stationary over some major cities, or unless those are some weird cloud patterns created by who know what but I dont think the local solar flare did that.

Ah well I would chock this up to another bizarre internet thing. Happens quite often really.

Those circles are seen often. It's just low-level noise around weather radar sites. (Birds, bugs, atmospheric haze. A scattering of stuff that gives light returns when there's not much else for the radar to pick up.) Usually seen in the evening or early morning.

As for the takedown? The screen capture is from a commercial site. Probably a copyright takedown, even if Facebook wasn't explicit about it. Use radar images from radar.weather.gov (NOAA) as those are public domain, and you shouldn't have any copyright issues. (And sometimes those are just as good if not better than the commerical radar images.)

a reply to: Rezlooper www.radaranomalies.com Rez, that is where you can find some info and also the research relevant to Doug Pooleys work. I hope you get a chance to check it out sometime. There is some interesting data there. I just typed in radar ring anomalies in my search engine and came up with that site and Dougs work. He and others put quite a bit of work into the subject. There are comments/discussions there I think. I didn't go over the site a lot after I found it. I am going back there to read some more. There was a link there relevant to my various areas of research and a website I had for a while of my own and also a website that a fellow from Croatia shared with me about many topics. The link to my stuff is probably gone though by now. I hope you find it all and enjoy and Thanx for all you do...is too bad folks don't always appreciate a fellow that takes a stand whether it is a popular one or not, it takes courage and being curious to delve into things that are not in the main stream. You try and that means a lot.

If I had to pick any of the explanations above I would say it had to do with the solar storm and that it was each radar in the fine-tuned setting picking up the electromagnetic activity. This is a combination of two explanations given in this thread. Just a guess though, I'm no expert...or meteorologist.


Oh my God, seriously? You have had this "anomaly" explained to you pretty plainly and you have been shown examples which back up the completely mundane explanations. Jeezus...

Yea, ignore the few who brought screen shots and facts to back up their real life experience. I am sure it was bigfoot humping the HAARP antennas.

Unreal. Reminds me of those lights captured by that pilot a couple weeks ago over the pacific:

This is fairly common. All those are RADAR sites. I've seen the same thing multiple times here in Toronto.

If the circles were also moving then we may have something to worry about

I just thought about that. Are those Humana banners part of the images he uploaded to Facebook or parts of your particular ss's OP?

If the original posts on Facebook included Humana banners, Google maps, etc they might've viewed it as a violation of their T & C.


Yeah because you can post beheadings, but woe betide anyone that posts radar images.

Second.

Trust me, this isn't a fake. And yes, if it were, it would be a pretty damn good one. It makes no sense that they would remove something like this. Well, maybe it does, but not to me, unless there really was something to these images.



The Internet and real life are both becoming very scary places where many things aren't allowed to be discussed anymore. I think that Facebook might be participating in some new policies where they police their site for stuff like this. I bet they didn't even care if it was real or not, just about the topic.

Certain UFO-related Facebook posts of mine have gone missing over the years. Anything that contradicts the government's swamp gas etc, story is likely to go *poof* on Facebook. I guess I'm "outed" as a UFO agitator but there's not a hell of a lot they can do except stick it in a file. a reply to: Rezlooper

I just can't believe anyone would suggest that such a massive cloud-like formation could be bugs or birds. Atmospheric haze (whatever that is), maybe. But, birds or bugs?

Explained more than once? You mean more more than one explanation, don't you? Where is the consensus on this being one thing in particular. I honestly don't believe anyone actually knows what the hell these things are. Just a bunch of ideas presented by a bunch of know-it-alls.
