Strange Clouds move over Florida. Possibly toxic clouds?

The sun is setting in this video. If you scroll through it and fast forward so to speak, the sun is setting so the camera is pointing west. Which means the clouds are moving east in from the Gulf.

Anyone ever seen anything like this? Is this the effect all of the new toxic chemicals being released over the gulf at unprecedented levels?

Those look strange, the circles do look gaseous. Sounds like a good guess to me. You've got to figure there are going to be some anomolies with that much oil and gas in the area.

holes in the ozone?

at first i thought this might be a fake, which it might

but then again, all the oil fumes as well as chemical dispersants in the gulf might somehow relate to tears in the ozone or layers of it, producing phenomenons like the aurora? at least if there were holes in the ozone opening up i would suspect it to look similiar but i am not a scientist

Holes in something. That looks weird.

I wondered if methane could reflect red when in the atmosphere, so I did some Google searches. I found this on a website:


Under sunlight methane forms a reddish smog-like haze, so if the proportion of methane is quite large (as on the moon Titan) the sky becomes hazy and reddish instead. This would probably not happen in an oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere breathable to humans, since methane would not likely exceed a few percent. In the presence of oxygen methane oxidizes into carbon dioxide and water.

Not sure is this is correct, but it could explain the red rings.

Anyone know what part of Florida this footage is from?

I like second lines....

Youtube poster said it was on the western coast of Florida.

Pretty sure that's a camera lens artifact. I say this, partially because that was what I immediately felt I was seeing before I realized those were the "clouds" you were talking about, but also because of the way they're situated all around the sun and seem to be moving outward from it in all directions as the sun slowly sets. They just seem too related to what the sun is doing to be actual clouds rather than an optical phenomenon.

Of course, I live in Florida, so I'm hoping anyway ;-)

That is where the new low pressure system is developing....

1. A WEAK NON-TROPICAL LOW PRESSURE AREA...ASSOCIATED WITH A FRONTAL
ZONE...CENTERED OVER THE EXTREME NORTHEASTERN GULF OF MEXICO IS
EXPECTED TO DRIFT WESTWARD DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO. THIS LOW
WILL BE MONITORED FOR ANY SIGNS OF TROPICAL OR SUBTROPICAL
DEVELOPMENT. THERE IS A LOW CHANCE...10 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM
BECOMING A TROPICAL OR SUBTROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48
HOURS.

Thank you. I will keep an eye out for this.
I'm in FL and I've never personally seen this before.
It could be absolutely nothing but I am by no means a professional.
At first glance I wanted to say that the pinkish O clouds weren't real but you can see them change shape clearly with the movement.
Thanks for this video & the heads up though.

Today is a rainy one but maybe tonight it will clear up enough to take a look around.

It's actually very pretty, lol....

With the unprecedented amounts of oil they are "flaring" off you would think it likely that it would produce some strange phenomena.

I'm still waiting for "oil" rain, probably just a matter of time..

It's been very cloudy and rainy the last few days here on the Panhandle of Florida (I live right on the coast). I will keep my eyes peeled and my camera charged.

Yes, I see where it could be a camera artifact as well.
Now it's driving me crazy. I keep watching it over and over lol
Very pretty though indeed.

As for oil rain. Well, I think the oil is too heavy to be carried around and rained down on us. But the toxins in it ... now that's another story and another thread.

Anyhow, back to watching this darn clip!

Yea, I guess I should have been clear. It has been said that a hurricane or strong enough thunder storm could whip up the oil and bring it down.

The video is mesmerizing though, would be a nice screen saver!

This has already been posted and debunked

Boy I cant believe no one has started a new HAARP thread since a low pressure has developed there now.........

Thanks didn't see it posted already. I don't know about debunked... where was it debunked?

I have seen similar in the LA,Ca basin in the seventies.
I would disregard all the folks pooh-poohing this as it is already KNOWN there are "smog" clouds being formed over the gulf as the oil is burned and as more of the gasses make there way to the surface.
As a chemist and former oil worker, the reporter who says get a mask is spot on.
My opinion of the clouds is they are nucleated by condensed hydrocarbons. In the lab it is comparable to steam distillation in which water as it is evaporated it carries volatile compounds with it which are condensed with the water and separated. This and sulfur compounds from the burning oil create many nucleation points for water vapor and are logical candidates for why you see these clouds now and will continue to see unusual clouds for some time to come.
As for whether these compounds can rain down, since that is the entire principle of steam distillation, since acid rain is already a well known phenomenon. Does it really not make sense? Get a mask and make plans to get out. Leukemia is a terrible death.

Yep

In addition to our Gulf now being polluted probably beyond repair, we're looking at our air being affected too.

Once the winds carry the gulf breeze further inshore and it rains, our soil will also be affected.

It would be interesting if our ATS Brothers and Sisters down south closer to "the action" would let us know if they're experiencing headaches, sore throats, blurry vision, etc.

N.of norml's post was very insightful.

Start investing in getting a mask and maybe invest in the stocks associated with the companies that produce air masks.

The oil may be to heavy but the methane gases aren't.


More than 12 months ago some geologists rang the warning bell that the Deepwater Horizon exploratory rig might have been erected directly over a huge underground reservoir of methane.

Documents from several years ago indicate that the subterranean geologic formation may contain the presence of a huge methane deposit.

None other than the engineer who helped lead the team to snuff the Gulf oil fires set by Saddam Hussein to slow the advance of American troops has stated that a huge underground lake of methane gas—compressed by a pressure of 100,000 pounds per square inch (psi)—could be released by BP's drilling effort to obtain the oil deposit.

Current engineering technology cannot contain gas that is pressurized to 100,000 psi.

By some geologists' estimates the methane could be a massive 15 to 20 mile toxic and explosive bubble trapped for eons under the Gulf sea floor. In their opinion, the explosive destruction of the Deepwater Horizon wellhead was an accident just waiting to happen.

Yet the disaster that followed the loss of the rig pales by comparison to the apocalyptic disaster that may come.

A cascading catastrophe

According to worried geologists, the first signs that the methane may burst its way through the bottom of the ocean would be fissures or cracks appearing on the ocean floor near the damaged well head.

Evidence of fissures opening up on the seabed have been captured by the robotic submersibles working to repair and contain the ruptured well. Smaller, independent plumes have also appeared outside the nearby radius of the bore hole itself.

According to some geological experts, BP's operations set into motion a series of events that may be irreversible
