Do you know how they take lightning pics?.
I suggest you check.

But you title says it is over cern so is it or isn't it?.

I think I've repeatedly said "purportedly" over Cern.

I don't live there. I haven't even tried to match pics with a map etc.

My world view, in contrast to that of most to all of the naysayers . . . allows that the OP article MIGHT be true.

I assumed that posting it would bring out all the reasons it could not possibly be true (in the eyes and biases of the naysayers) flooding out of the woodwork. Perhaps their arguments would win the day. Perhaps not.

At this point, from my perspective . . . it's still an open question.

The naysayers have offered some reasonable arguments. I haven't found any of them wholesale conclusive in terms of the OP's postulations.

Is the concept that

other folks . . . likely the authors


a difficult concept for you?

Perhaps you are also unaware that the ATS T&C REQUIRES using the exact title on the article.

Now, my question for you is . . .

Where does your hostile blood-lust smugness come from?

Right so it is a pretty picture that may be over cern...
Moving on because that is what I see here.
Maybe next time check your sources and don't fall for tabloid nonsense.
Lol the sun you do know it is a tabloid bs rag?.

I've taken lightening pics myself.

You are welcome to continue to respond to me as though I was lobotomized when I was a week old, if you wish.

You may well end up talking to yourself.

For the umpteenth time . . .

it was the flakiest organizations and publications which

FIRST said who Hitler was, what he would be come and what he would do.

And they were the

MOST ACCURATE in such regards.

I'll continue to pay attention to flaky organizations and publications.

It is highly logical that they might reveal something the stodgy, arrogant institutions of fossilized constructions on reality automatically are prone to miss or turn a very blind eye to.

But hey, if you are passionate about being wedded to the historic incapacity of science to change very quickly; to accept new truths and understanding very quickly . . . be my guest.

It's certainly true that professional bias can cause scientists to hold certain beliefs about the outcome of their experiment before it is performed. And I don't doubt ego plays a part in that as well.

But the only solution to ignorance is knowledge, and that is the goal of science.

As for my post length, I make short posts when I don't have much to say. In this instance, that wasn't the case.

If I may, it was suggested earlier in this thread that this was a long exposure photograph. And that the details have been enhanced via digital manipulation. Perhaps there were multiple bursts of lightning in the cloud during the exposures, causing the seemingly abnormal lighting quality. And that could easily have been further exaggerated by altering brightness, contrast and saturation, giving it the unusual qualities that stand out to you so strongly.

Was hoping to be amazed by some spooky looking pics. Totally underwhelmed by pictures of a simple storm above the LHC, taken a slighting was striking.

Bo Xian, I am far more of a skeptic than you are, but appreciate your attitude concerning keeping one's mind open. With this post I must ask you though: what to you looks different about these pictures than any other storm picture that has been taken exactly as lighting flashes behind/within a cloud? Different besides having the LHC beneath the storm, that is.

I won't discount the possibility that somehow I'm totally not seeing some eerie feature in the photos, but the images look to be nothing more than well timed images ( chosen out of probably hundreds of stills within multiple "burst" captures...even more likely just long image exposures) of an average thunderstorm.

Cheers, and Ill continue to keep an eye out for the content you provide. Whether I agree with most of it or not, it's a nice change of scenery from all of the non-stop repetitive political backslapping that's taken over the place....

Maybe my criteria is different than yours.

No doubt.

That's a perfectly reasonable explanation.

I have no idea whether it is the true one, or not.

THANKS FOR YOUR KIND WORDS. They help a lot toward dealing with those out for my throat and head on a platter.

It is hard to articulate the difference . . . let me try . . .

I think the concentration and shape of the lighting effects.

Plausibly, those could easily have occurred from the long exposure or the CGI alterations.

Or, maybe they were just there.

I don't know and I have no way of knowing.

I don't think anyone else does, either.

We are all guessing based on our biases.

Even the "super rationalist 'scientific' sorts" are basing a lot of their convictions on


--faith based in their a-priori ASSUMPTIONS about reality etc.

They just have the intensely smug conviction that THEIR assumptions and THEIR FAITH are far more reasonable than folks like me who dare to think differently and hold lots of possibilities loosely to see what is confirmed down the road.

That sounds perfectly plausible, to me.

I have no viable way to prove it one way or another.

I don't know for sure either way, myself. But I am honestly more inclined to think it a combination of technique and manipulation. If reason that it already being common practice and remarkably easy to do.
However, had the lighting been bright red, or the cloud been an obviously unnatural shape, I believe we would certainly be having a different conversation at this point.

Thanks for your kind reply.

IF Cern is a center of . . . other reality . . . sorts of goings on . . . I do not think they will be able to keep it as quiet and derided as they have . . . indefinitely.

Something will happen that they cannot contain or deal with, imho.

So, thunderstorms are portals now?

Rather interesting looking thunderstorm..coincidentally above the LHC apparently.

In my 40 years on this earth that's the first time I'm seeing a thunderstorm like that..then again I've only seen thunderstorms in Mediterranean climate regions of the world.

I'm not saying I agree it's a portal to another world dimension or galaxy or whatever, but it is rather interesting.

I wouldn't be surprised if S.T.A.R Laboratory's were involved in the creation of that storm above the LHC, our Earth 1 speedster has been very busy of late.

Heard rumours that he went back in time to save his mother from death, hence the world catastrophes of late, he's changed the timeline and made it all apocalyptic and weird.
