lll use your words to make your point-said...to echo mine.

You: "This fissure reportedly opened up within the span of two weeks. Granted, it's been in the works for much longer than that, but this feature is brand new as far as we human observers are concerned."

My point confirmed by your statement.

1.Been in the works...the natural dynamics of terrestrial formations and refinements...for much longer (so there you go...expected and observed a long time coming).
2. Feature is brand new (as far as now there are human observers to hash it over the table...my point) so nothing in Eons of Earth changes is any different with the exception is that we are talking about it where the caveman grunted and shrugged his shoulders.

Respectfully, an interesting thread. Thanks. MS

Sorry Aqualung - I forgot to add that I found your post to be quite eloquent, well-written, creative and informative.
Kudos on attaining front page status in only 2 pages of posts.

I found it odd that the NLBS article has remained the headline for as long as it has. This does however, seem like a great companion thread to fan the flames.

It has to be one of the strangest, most totalitarian enactments to come about as of late. It's just not being enforced in the manner that many would be led to believe. If you were to research, you'll find that there's a similar regulation pertaining to collecting data on water quality. Why?
Can't be stepping on the fracking and mining industry's toes when it comes to groundwater pollution, now can we?

Money buys laws.

Respectfully, of course and only in the spirit of discussion and critical thinking.

I can only guess that the point you're trying to make is it's useless to talk about these things because we already know it's coming and has happened before.... and that by and large, we are incapable of effecting these processes (both natural and unnatural.)

If this is your point; I agree to an extent, but I think it is a matter of scope. We would love to pretend that knowledge indeed equals power, and that may be true -but again- it's only to an extent. Will knowing make any difference for us in the long run? Probably not... too little too late.

But... at that rate we risk delving into the existential realms of thought, where inevitably nihilism has to take the wheel, unless spiritualism is called in to drive. This is not the forum for that, to be sure.

So, we observe, we grumble and we discuss, maybe for no use at all. Some may wish to know beforehand, some may refuse to look... but whether you are quelled by prediction or soothed by denial, the fate remains the same. Your point is taken.

Like I said before: we risk spiraling into madness contemplating the use of anything at all, including even having an ATS account or even continuing to live. So my only counterpoint is: this is what we do. Maybe the only point is to do it the best we can.

Thanks Sage, I appreciate the compliment. Anyone could have grabbed up the story, but I wanted to try and make it more than just a regurgitation of the headlines, you know? The timing is impeccable, but I never could have guessed it would have bumped elbows with the thread it actually references. The two topics have tied together extremely well and I am happy about it.

NLBS tends to hold top position for a long time when they come out. I can't speak to why that is, but yeah I would like to think most anyone could make the connection for themselves.

Of course, I also want to send thanks back to the community for keeping thread "neat." That's half of what makes a thread flow well is the discussion on the presented material.

Very cool discovery. However I don't believe this is seismic here's why:

-The Big Horn mountains are are 360 miles from the center of the caldera.
-Parts of Colorado and Wyoming have both had a good amount of rain in the past few years, this spring especially!.
(I had to wait a month before I could camp at my favorite spot on the Laramie Plains and we still got stuck!)
-Much of the Bighorn basin area is made of sandstone and limestone, which is easily eroded by water.

I've spent a lot of time in the state. I have always been fascinated by it's geology and thus have spent a lot of time studying the rock formations. The flatter parts of the state (ie. the basins or plains areas) are made of soft sedimentary rock and if you look at google earth photos of the area you can see where the ground water has flowed and made depressions in the landscape. Much of the state has very sandy soil too so when it rains the water will just sink.

If you look at the photo where it actually shows the inside of the crack you will see the tremendous amounts of sand and the eroded sandstone/limestone.

Water and ice level mountains over time. Water is a powerful force and freezing and thawing even more powerful.

This is a fairly normal event. Geology 101 in fact.


Lol. Here we go again. Normal on the scale of thousands of years, not normal for literally hundreds of events in the past 7 years.


Very good point... I don't know how many "first time in recorded history" reports I've heard in that short time-frame, spanning nearly every planetary study. No one can argue that things are ramping up around the globe, which is how these "individual" events gain so much of their weight. It's beyond coincidence, and nothing happens in complete isolation on Earth.


So I just wanted to emphasize my view on this perception of events. The statement and "nothing happens in complete isolation on Earth." as far as I know is only been mostly true as of the last seven years. Was not really until about 2008 that much of the Earths population gained access to either the internet, a cellular phone(smartphone), and/or drone technology with HD cameras or any combination of all of the mentioned technology.

The BBC can put out documentaries of first time on film annually for years and still not come close to disclosing all the event and phenomenon. There is a place in Venezuela where a constant lightning storm that occurs for half the year is the single largest generator of ozone on Earth.


The Catatumbo Lightning (Spanish: Relámpago del Catatumbo)[1] is an atmospheric phenomenon in Venezuela. It occurs only over the mouth of the Catatumbo River where it empties into Lake Maracaibo. The frequent, powerful flashes of lightning over this relatively small area are considered to be the world's largest single generator of tropospheric ozone.[2]

It originates from a mass of storm clouds at a height of more than 5 km, and occurs during 140 to 160 nights a year, 10 hours per day and up to 280 times per hour. It occurs over and around Lake Maracaibo, typically over the bog area formed where the Catatumbo River flows into the lake.[3]

After appearing continually for centuries, the lightning ceased from January to April 2010, apparently due to drought, temporarily raising fears that it might have been extinguished permanently.


Even this is still not known to many of the humans on Earth. I would sincerely love to visit there somehow someday in my life.

The Earth does very strange things in, under, above and around every continent. Many still do not have a 100% confirmed origin or explanation to this day, 2015, the Future.

However that law did not suddenly pop up for no reason, and if there are any other related or similarly unorthodox occurrences in this state, it may be more of an attempt to hide possible or alleged repercussions of fracking technology and new energy explorations to help out political donors than an attempt to hide geological events.

The only time the establishment makes a law to hide something, usually it is to mitigate loss in shareholder confidence and profits/dividends. Rarely is it actually because something devastating is about to occur with the Earth. They would simply just instruct a media blackout alone, not a combination of a blackout AND passing legislation which reduces transparency.

Would definitely investigate whos district this formation is in and what industrial power brokers have influence there.

a reply to: asmall89

Big thanks for the first hand experience with the region, really. I don't personally know much about the geography there, so every bit of insight helps paint the picture for me (and lots of others as well, I'm sure.)

What you said makes a lot of sense, and yeah I even noticed the sand in the bottom of the fissure. I don't necessarily doubt the scientists/engineers explanation of what happened there, but I still can't shake the impression that that much movement would have to cause some sort of seismic read-out on the sensors.

I've seen it posted that yes, there was a small reaction in the graphs, but I just get the feeling there might be more to this story. Whether it's being actively suppressed or it's not yet clear to scientists I can't say, but my gut feeling is that we will be seeing more activity like this in the area, because I do believe things effect other things.

But in all seriousness, I do appreciate any first hand experience over speculation any day.

I bet asmall89 has some awesome vacation photos of places hes seen. asmall, I wouldnt suppose you would share some of your favorite outcroppings,arches, caves or other stuff youve seen? I love printing peoples unique underwater dives and mountain explorations pictures (with permission of course, if you permit) for my own personal album collections to admire, and occasionally use one as backdrop for a diorama . I have alot of New mexico, Colorado, Arizona, more southwest. I would really enjoy to start a more norther latitude of the US. I will never get to visit every place, but at least I can know I can witness them through genuine witnesses who have experienced the landscape.

If not its cool.

I still think the fact that this law was also passed in the same state may allude to a corporate coverup type thing like monsanto protection act and stuff. Could be a by product of some project even far away.

i dont star many posts but when i do its, ones like this. if they arent already tracking seismic data for events like this in the region, they should start now.. thanks for posting

They dont want you to Panic!
they just want you to Die!

this can not be the first like this.
they come up with a new law to stop people to reporting it?
they know full well what is hapening.

Since it is near Yellowstone it becomes a fissure or a crack, instead of the big gully that it is ?.

It's just a big gully caused by erosion from rainfall runoff carrying soil away.

They said it in the article..." from a wet spring "... and I have personally observed bigger ones than that with my own eyes.

Anyone have coordinates so I can go on Google Earth and take a look at it from above?, then the bigger picture will probably even make it obvious where the soil went when it was washed away....

Interesting that should come up, as I have noticed that as the corporations and industries destroy the environment they come up with things to sell us to make up for the things they destroy, like filtration systems to remedy polluting the aquifers and drugs to remedy the symptoms of disease caused by the pollution we ingest from the environment constantly.

In the beginning it was simple ignorance and greed that caused the damage, now they actually know what they do and create things to kill the pain of the damage.

For a few dollars more.....

Oh yeah, similar to the attempt to hide the composition of fracking fluids - listing them as 'trade secrets'.

On the topic of this huge crack however, I don't see it as being related. There's really not any fracking activity nearby that would cause this.
I'm going with the 'accepted' explanation for now. If however, in the next few months we get any large earthquakes in the area, I may have to revise my opinion.

Very interesting!

I've been doing some searches, but can't seem to find out which way this crack is running. Anyone here know?

East/West? North/South?

Alright, I'm off to go scare drunk people at a Haunted trail... you guys take good care of my thread while I'm gone!

Update that stuff and whatnot, I'll be back tomorrow to respond to messages.

(And to the above poster, I'm not sure the exact location... was trying to find coordinates to no avail. Maybe someone can put that together for us?)

I'm no geologist, nor scientist, but I firmly believe that there are logical things to expect when there is a sequence of events.

You have earthquakes n unexpected places on earth (Nepal, Afghanistan, Chile), you have an unbelievable drought in California and in Brazil; the strongest hurricane (Patricia) ever recorded; floods; record high and low temperatures; now a small version of a canion in WY...

Shouldn't this mean something? It's obvious that Earth is changing. It's only natural IMHO, however it can't be just dismissed as a series of coincidences. It may represent a risk to all living things on this planet, but again, universe will not stop just because we are here. Dinossaurs disappeared and they were larger and more eco-friendly. We may disappear too, and I think NASA is only hoping they can send human speciemens to Mars just before we are all gone.

Dunno...
