Ok, hello to everyone.
It's the first time i post, and probably the last. Not because i don't like you guys, it's just that i'm terrible with forums and newsletters.
Plus i work. I'm not part of some mysterious Illuminati alliance or whatever, I just work in science. More precisely Engineering. Avionics,
aerospace, propulsion. Things I'm sure you would like to question me about. And this is exactly how it started. We where at a common friend's house
and someone asked me and another bunch of smart kids (Yeah, it's always like that, we go out together and get all the ladies...) if aliens could
really fly (or something) from another planet and enter our atmosphere, zip around almost unnoticed and land on some farm in the rural areas of US,
kill a cow or two, scare the rednecks and return to their home planet saying: "mission accomplished". The question landed in a minefield because you
should never ask about green little aliens to an engineer, a planetologist, and former astronaut. You will get so many "no" from so many different
perspectives that you wouldn't even know where to start. I'm sorry for my attitude, but this thing, this event, the volcano... it's just difficult
to square. I've never been interested in ufology since today (and i can say, that pretty video just got you 3 new acolytes), and i think i've been
watching the video ten times before writing this article.
Anyway, back to the story and reaction of my colleagues. T. (Planetologist) to cut short used the typical answer: show me proof. Show me something i
can't explain. And bang, this friend opened up Youtube, the video, and a whole room filled with (supposed) smart kids watched it without a word. You
see, volcanoes can generate some very nasty and strange things. Globular lighting, all kind electric phenomenons that would just make the average Joe
scream for UFO. The amount of energy liberated in such an even is so powerful, the chemical reactions so extreme that anything beside smurfs can come
out of a lava pit. Storms of unimaginable power can generate the average "lights in the sky" at a distance of kms from the epicenter. Reactions with
upper layers of the atmosphere can lay on the land strange markings and such thanks to chemical concentrations losing momentum and falling to the
ground. The substrata close to the mantel hold a treasure of rare chemicals too, and in it is in such a moment that some of the most beautiful stones
we can dig on earth are created. But that, that light, it's a mistery even to some veteran geologist like T.
So i'll give you some feedback on what we have seen (since we cannot leave everything and go there and check it personally, eh eh eh), and what I and
the people around me think of that.
The event A starts at 18:42:56 on March 13 2011. On the northern side of the volcano, even with a very low resolution, we can see some apparent
combustion at the feet of the mountain. There is no visible eruption, but lots of smoke. In this moment everything is normal for my planetologist.
Even the rocks know that the top of a volcano is just one part of the whole idea. Most of the interesting stuff happens around it. Like the lighting
you can witness in the night on the lake side. The moment the "big ball of whatthe#" (I gave it the name. Sounds appropriate right?) rises, starting
yellow (and then we'll speak about polarization of the lenses used by the webcam), we witness the first strange (but explainable) event. It's the
astronaut's call. Because I'll report her verbatim: "I've seen enough plane's lights to recognize it when i see it". And after she placed our
attention on it, I must say she's right. The first flicker of light we see it's not natural. By all standards. At least it's not geological. It's
like a light at the end of a pole be oscillated back and forth back and forth in such a regular manner that you can find in Life, not un-life. I'm
not saying there is intelligence there, but it's a very very strange phenomenon. And mind you, at that moment we haven't seen anything yet. Nothing.
We where at the 5th minute of a video written in Japanese. About a volcano. Way to spend your evening. But that flicker, so regular, so...
intellingent. Of course we where there watching it because we expected to see something special. With so much skepticism on our shoulders that where
trying to find reasonable and realistic answers to the events on the video. That was the first moment when we had to sit and think about a possible
explanation, not just shoot the answer and that's it. I understand most of the people will be commenting the cannonball, the blue light, etc. For us,
as a starter, was the light. I'm not interested in what kind of spaceship you think it belongs. All your answers are wrong because that's the way it
is. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to ridicule your theories, they just look.. very... ridiculous. (I had myself a crash course on UFO theories
tonight, some people needs to see a good doctor. soon. Lizards? Cloudships? Grays? what's next? the Borgs?). Nobody on Earth can know what it is
because the whole behavioral pattern of the thing (things) is impossible to understand. I would love to see Ufologists behave more like scientist than
Talibans with their 2012 theories.
Anyway, back to the video. The event A is the light, the big light that grows so large that it's hard to tell what makes it. And that is the point.
At the moment it was growing T. was numbering all the possible reasons while watching it, but he soon ran out of options. To make that amount of
energy for so many minutes you need more than a volcano. Also, that kind of light and progression is very well know in the aerospace industry. It's
plasma from any angle you want to watch it. And when i said it aloud the answer to our little mystery was solved: A large Argon vein just bursting and
burning. Until it took the circular shape that means that some magnetic field is mantaining it into that shape. You see, nature is regular, but on a
microscopic scale. In such a big event, like tons of plasma overheating, it gets regular but in such a scale that it's impossible for us to
understand. We should look at a planetary scale to find some mathematical model, not in the perfect geometrical shape we have in the video. There is
magnetic field keeping it together, i bet my ass on it. You see, we are developing things like that, there are scores of engines that utilize now
plasma containment. Even atmospheric planes that in the near future will use it. deep in the folds of research papers a growing community of physics
and engineers are exploring plasma as a energy source. It's the whole idea behind cold fusion. Also, plasma as a transportation mean. You can
litterally transform anything into plasma, and get some propulsion out of it. Or energy. It is with that process that we want to reach Mars in 30
days, and get near-light speeds in the process. I must admit. From my point of view seeing a ball of plasma like that, perfectly contained while we
can't get a baseball of same energy without running the risk of going boom, it's a little miracle itself.
Of course there are the objects shoot into the atmosphere (Very very unlikely event said the planetologist), but for me, the ripples that at some
point the BBOWTF make, the vanishing into thin air leaving no trace... That is someone, provided with intelligence and means and technology,
controlling an enormous amount of energy, creating it and then removing the source of that very event in the blink of an eye. If it's natural,
well... this is Narnia. And I'm a guy who doesn't believe in little green man.
