I see the pentagon in your link, Oz. I believe this is what the thread refers to in the OP. Weird. Do clouds take on such angular geometric shapes naturally?

No they dont.

Its just an area that the last satellite sweep from the MTSAT satellite did not cover. Its nothing unusual, we see it frequently


I actually wish the visible image (the other one is infrared) was available to show you, but it doesnt show up during the night as it is to dark

I should'nt have said LIVE. I know they all are 10 to 30 minutes behind. Right? But that will do! The anomaly is still over the Arctic on Google Earth right now, and I cant find another damn satellite view of the area. Little help? Thanks Weatherman dude.

Actually satellie images come in hours apart, well the geo stationary one do anyway. Im not sure about the polar orbiters.

Can you describe the anamoly?

I take it you don't have Google Earth. At the moment, it looks like a 2000 mile wide diamond-esqe type shape with sharp angular corners. Directly over The Arctic.
I wish I could attach a clip of it but sorry I don't know how. I could send the picture to an e mail if you were ok with that. I'm no computer wiz.

Yeah I understand where you are talking about now, I was lost before. And I dont need google earth because I have access to almost every single weather satellite in my internal web (and some on the external web) here at my work.

Like I said we use these satellites constantly

If you could hook me up with a link to a weather satellite with recent photos of that region I would appreciate it. Greenland and The Arctic Ocean.
When you said, "Yes, I see where you mean now." Does that mean you saw it on one of your satellites? No right?

No, I was looking at the wrong area...I mean I understand where you are talking about now....will see if I can find some raw satellite images

Now, The Arctic and Greenland is basically the area it has stayed in since yesterday, but this has been going on since Sept.30 I believe and these shapes have been appearing ,as I believe others have said here, all over the globe on Google Earth.
Because I could not attach a picture image for you, this little 2 minute video should sum it up for you if you have not seen it. Check this out.
Please note for the record- I am not the maker of this video-but it has all the images in it.

Here's the infrared satellite weather map from Intellicast. Do you see anything strange?



Here's the enlargement. Check out the red arrows pointing to the anomalies...



Where the Google Earth images are concerned, these are a patchwork of images from a number of sources like satellites, aircraft, balloons and so on. Any glitch in one could result in missing data and strange anomalies.

I think these are just technical faults and nothing to do with those so called 'GFL light ships' scheduled for a rendezvous with earth on the 14th of Oct as some have contended!


Cheers!

Thank you good Knight....but nowhere on any of those(which I have already been to btw) am I able to find images of the Arctic Ocean. It's like they show absolutely everywhere else, but I'm assuming that is just because nobody ever WANTS lol to look at The Arctic Ocean!
If I am missing it on there I will be very angry with myself, but I can't find a good shot of that area. I do, thank you dearly for your kind deed sir.

Dear oh dear,
Client couldn't pull those images from the server, that is what it is, hence the large missing rectangle area.

Mike--I was looking at those this morning and it really does not show the north or south poles. Right? I think I brought this up and asked this earlier,and failed to get an answer. Today I ve been trying to get a look over the Arctic Ocean, and I can't really see it on that map. I wish I could just see a shot off the Arctic and Greenland notrh of Canada.
Plus, the logo is in the left hand corner. It's just driving me nuts, that Intellicast map. Actually---You blew it up so much. I see now. Thats a full global view. Thats fine. Thats good enough for me. I'm mad at myself cuz I should have just blown it up like you. Thanks.

I think you all are reading a little too deep into this. Clearly, there can be no perfect demarcation line in a given weather pattern as displayed by the posted images. The individual positing the "tiling" phenomenon due to "stitching" image data of a spherical nature is the reason you see the images "sliced" so perfectly. Images captured by digital systems are "analogous" to the actual analogues of the real thing, but the data is not "smooth". If you take a close look at an icosahedral sphere (Bucky Ball named for Richard Buckminster Fuller), you will notice at the poles of the geometric shape there lies a pentagon as this will render a "good" faceted representation of a sphere. Thus the fractal equations used to assemble the transmitted data from satellites and needed to reconstruct a flat image from spherical data captured can fail from interruptions caused by electromagnetic interferences man-made and natural (sun spots, CME, etc.).

Satellite imagery on a global scale require a scanning method as the earth is rotating and the satellite is in a continuous orbit (not geosynchronous). This means there was a few orbital scans that simply was corrupt or not collected (cannot know either way lest you are responsible for the data collection in the first place). The pentagon at the polar caps (meaning there is a corresponding pentagon at the Antarctic pole as well) merely indicates the demarcation of next group of composite scans. If the scans were perfectly continuous, the mathematics to place the weather systems over the proper regions would be very difficult and the compensation algorithms would be even more computational intensive than they are now. It is a computational trade-off with the practical resolution gained.

In conclusion, the discontinuity is from the computational platforms responsible for reconstruction the image information. There is no phenomenon occurring.

To wit, the effectiveness of these forums are directly related to the degree of rational and thoughtful intercourse amongst ourselves. We are better served as a community to bear this in mind prior to posting wild speculations that can cause one to divert their attention on matters of trivial consequence.

We have far larger problems due to the confusion, distortion, and distractions introduced into our day-to-day lives that systematically squander our energy our talent and a whole host of important resources. Lets not fall victim to waste on meaningless pursuits that resolve nothing.

I have noticed that "Blinking Star" as well for the last two days. I am not a regular star gazer so I don't know if it is one that is always flickering like that. I look up enough I think though to have found it interesting. I am in Michigan and it is due east right now.


The technical term is twinkling. As in:

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky

Yes you're absolutely right. Since the song doesnt go, stroby stroby little star...

It's something you've got to see until you'll believe it. It was like somone was flashing a light, which happened to change colours.. i know what flickering stars look like... there were other stars in the sky to compare to.. so please don't tell me what I saw.

edit: And the fact there have been at least 4-5 people since me posting that saying they saw the EXACT same thing. The guy in cali saw it off to the EAST.. which would make sense, since im in T.O and i saw it to the west.. we could have very much been looking at the same thing.

Hmmm had this one...
National Weather Service Alaska Region (Anchorage) real time imagery covering Alaska, Bering Sea and portions of the Arctic and North Pacific Oceans.

But seems the site is down...

Try here

You can always check out the REAL HAARP site as well

I understand the sphere of data at the top of the globe. You can see the sections.

I just noticed a perfect triangle cutout over Ireland. Same thing I guess.
