The only changes found by very sensitive gravimeter testing (much more sensitive than a pendulum) were far to small to account for the anomalies appearing in the pendulum tests. For this reason the results of the pendulum tests are rejected.

There is no mention of the pendulum tests being conducted in a vacuum but the experimenters say this:

But the relatively sharp changes in barometric pressure during an eclipse can certainly create local air mass movement at ground level, for example, into or out of a building.

The experimenters say that that the results of the pendulum tests could have been caused by such air movement. That the pendulums were not protected from this. The fact that results of pendulum tests have become less consistent as controls became more rigid backs up this idea.

In any case, this paper does not back up theories of gravity shielding. It contradicts them.

Quite possibly the most information I've ever seen put forward in an initial thread.

Great job. S&F..

Too bad it's not over US though...o well

....but from what I understand and although the paper doesn't clarify this... an accurate scientific pendulum would normally be in a vacuum... I believe it is probable that it is one in a vacuum because the paper claims it to have been very accurate.... And I doubt a pendulum that is not a vacuum can be considered very accurate when atmospheric pressure could be affecting it.. Although the only way we can find out what type of devices was used it to do a little research...... but lets assume that the effect is due to atmospheric changes and the device is not in a vacuum... that still doesn't explain why the pendulums are STILL affected BEFORE the solar eclipse hits and 30 minutes AFTER as the paper says ? ... also assuming atmospheric pressure increases due to the air getting cooler, then the pendulum should swing lower not higher.? I believe scientist's would make sure that atmospheric pressure would not affect it.... (by using a vacuumed device) or at least compensate the effect.

I will do some research to see if the pendulum used was vacuumed or not.... if vacuumed then the results hold much more weight......

Amazing research- thank you! Also wanted to add we've just had a lunar eclipse (that was rare in that it was invisible to the eye, even in the path of the eclipse- Ibelieve it was July 7- the new moon).

There is a second New Moon in the sign of cancer- the New Moon that wil be eclipsed on the 22nd- it is called "the Secret moon", as it's the second New Moon in Cancer.

I wonder hw these events, combined woththe Jupiter/Saturn/chiron configurations will effect the world. The planetary positions are the same as during the 1918 flu pandemic, and the physicis of eclipses are well-known- in fact, we're seeing a sort of prodrome- small earthquakes, cold weather, etc. I wonder what will occurr after the 22nd?

Great topic, wonderful research and beautifully presented, OP! S&F!

Your work with the time wave zero is SO amazing!

I remembered that the time wave has a Huge Drop - Oh yes - something else has said something about the date also.

So, my thought - was the Only thing I knew of that was a Big event on the same date is the Solar Eclipse - longest duration of our lifetime.

Then what could happen, besides obviously Earthquakes?

I am putting together a thread ( almost done) about a certain dam - that the solar eclipse will be directly over - which 340 million people live under it's shadow (down from it).

Not sure if this article has been posted here yet, but it's one of the only related articles I could find:

Disaster fears as 'monster' eclipse looms

Unfortunately the article doesn't delve much into the science of the catastrophic possibility.

I would just like to take this moment to welcome our new Overlords
from the Planet Nibiru. And would like to offer my services for the Assistant

Nice. I am in India on business so I should get a good view of the eclipse. Thanks for the post, I didn't know there was one coming up so soon

Raj Kumar Sharma, an astrologer in Mumbai, described July 22 as a "very dangerous moment in the universe," with the blocking of the sun's rays akin to a disease or virus.

"If the sun, the leader of the stars, is sick, then definitely there's going to be some bigger problems happening in the world," he said.

Why is it always psuedo scientists who have very little scientific ability/knowledge/experience that are always predicting the doom and gloom.

It's an eclipse, they're nothing dangerous and certainly far from harbingers of doom, why is it everything wonderful these days has to come with some sort of "danger" tag associated with it ? Can't we just enjoy these spectacular events for what they are instead of trying to promote fear in people ?

Good research. You did mention Nostrodamus but I am surprised not to see a similar prediction from the Bible.

Revelation 6:12
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

this is a great thread, job well done . i was told that by seeing it you could go blind? any truth in that?

I have been waiting for this day for 3 years. Thanks for bringing the solar eclipse to the attention of these people. I have had a few visions of that day.

I have a feeling a shift will occur. I have for a while now.

oh moon light,
you sing to me
in my times of darkness.
You play me a symphony,
seducing me with your soft, subtle grace,
showing me the other side to your light.
You take hold of my mind,
the guide to my night,
you show me these doors
locked hidden inside.
As you eclipse in my eyes,
the sun in our sky
will illuminate my other eye
while we sleep in our dreamtime

Well done and well presented

Flaged !

do you suppose..

is connected with this? or gamme ray bursts, sunspot activity?

posted on Jul, 20 2009 @ 11:22 AM
I'm here in India, the eclipse is supposed to begin at 5:28am with totality at 6:26am, this is between when the sun normally comes up, so the night will seem longer rather than darkness appearing during the day..

not sure if anyone asked already but i heard this is a great time for worship/prayer/spells and the like. What time is it going to start and end in cst. I know we wont see it but it will be happening and i want to plan something during that time so wanted to know exactly when it starts in my time zone in arkansas.

edit to say if someone does know the exact time please send me a u2u in case i miss it in a reply on this thread....thank you so very much...this will be a perfect time to get my life back on track ...

You did see this msm article right?

MUMBAI (AFP) – Indian astrologers are predicting violence and turmoil across the world as a result of this week's total solar eclipse, which the superstitious and religious view as a sign of potential doom.

But astronomers, scientists and secularists are trying to play down claims of evil portent in connection with Wednesday's natural spectacle, when the moon will come between the Earth and the sun, completely obscuring the sun.

In Hindu mythology, the two demons Rahu and Ketu are said to "swallow" the sun during eclipses, snuffing out its life-giving light and causing food to become inedible and water undrinkable.

What I find interesting is how the oldest traditions
around the world always have dire expectaions of theses events via their tried and true experience.

It would be wise to follow these examples as they are common sense anyway.

Pregnant women are advised to stay indoors to prevent their babies developing birth defects, while prayers, fasting and ritual bathing, particularly in holy rivers, are encouraged.
