thats funny, because when i ask people to read what i post, they dont have a problem. sure i might employ some internet quickness with my writing, as most modern people do. You dont. thats your deal.
however, saying im functionally illiterate makes me want to question your reading abilities. If your having that hard of time understanding what i say (yet still arguing about what i say) I would say your the one with mental problems. Obviously you dont, but your arguments lack credability. Saying im functionally not understandable, and yet arguing with me.
The guess the old adage about arguing on the internet is true. Maybe you should spend more time creating some good threads on here instead of employing the grammar nazi routine over and over and over. Its not original or funny.

wow what a useless post of yours. pulling out the old grammar nazi routine. original!
but heres the thing, I dont have the time or want to have perfect punctuation and grammar on a CONSPIRACY FORUM. There are much more important things to be concerned with than that.

thanks for playing though

Well thats hypocritical..You want to bash the OP for lack of information while he/she put all that was available but at the same time you say you care not for perfect grammer and punctuation. I would say there is much more important things to be conerned with than bashing the OP. Like cmon man..

actualy if you read my first post to the OP. I was not rude at all. Just pushing these people into making decent threads. It was only after another member(who also makes lackluster threads) was trying to blow what i said out of proportion

and no its not about how it "looks". or the grammar of the thread.

Im just sick of seeing 1-3 line threads w/ a link. Lets see some content.

Looking at this slideshow more thoroughly, I concur with others.....steam appearing to expode out, under a very bright light. If you go to the Neumayer station site, pics now of the place look fine.

Can we please focus on the topic and NOT on each other!

Thank you.

What is that pinpoint light that appears above the radar dome at 23:10 UTC?
It travels along the same plane of the moon. It disappears under the second letter “a” in the word Antarctica, at 00:10 UTC.
Additionally, the swing set? G_D help those poor isolated children.

Ooooh please...Yes it's a just a video...just a line...but all is in the video no ? Explosion or fire in the middle of nowhere...
I don't know what it means, i'm not in there base, so i can't explain what it is. Indirectly, i said it in the opening. What can I do for improving the description ? Sincerley, nothing, you see with your eyes, you don't need explanations for that.
And i posted this to see what others thought and there are some members here, interested in.
So, please, i cannot invent a story of this. Well, in the past, I wrotten a lot. But here, there are not explanations of that. No sites are reporting it too.

If you like GREEAAAAT qualities of threads you can see others, there are many, because i'm not perfect.
You don't need great description to build a thread

Sorry, i don't want to be furious because i respect you, because you have more stars and more experience but please, understand others who are starting on this site. You want an elite ? Well go for it. Help me with link, descriptions, or thoughts, not with critics.

Finally, this thread will be deleted because i thought it was not an explosion after watching more, and alerted moderators. After i saw people interested in. But i don't know how to say moderators to cancel my demand.

Conclusion : watch the video if you want, post thoughts and help me if you want but nothing more. That's all.

Please moderator, put an end to this. This thread converted into a debate.

So, let's return to the thread.
At frame 140-144 you can see a UFO above the building flying east to west.

I saw that too but did not think it to be a UFO, it looks as though it tracks in the sky in an arc like a star. Considering that in 4 frames it would be about 40 minutes worth of movement if each frame is taken in 10 minute increments.

Explanation: S&F!

From the wiki supplied earlier in the thread... [supplied again Here. ]

The station will run all year round and includes 210 m2 (2,300 sq ft) of laboratory surface, divided into 12 compartments; in total, double the area of previous stations. Within the 15 accommodation containers there is room for 40 occupants to sleep. All inner rooms of the platform are built as self-contained units, some of which have aligned connecting passages, depending on their size. The compartmentalized interior of the station is enclosed in titanium protective sheet metal as thin as paper, with insulating Polyurethane supra foam.[1] The “structure section” image shows the simulated Antarctic snow-rooted crane between green metal girders. All items shown later found themselves on Antarctic snows in the form of Neumayer III.


InteriorIn addition to the previously mentioned laboratories and accommodation areas, there is a south-facing lounge with many windows, a washing room containing two washing machines and two dryers, a Sauna, an IT-room, showering and washing rooms, a dining room with a serving window connected to the kitchen, a conference room, medical treatment and operating rooms, various storage rooms, a large refrigerating area, a dressing room, a heating-system room, a schooling and planning room and finally a water treatment room.

[edit] Datamain building height: 29.2 m (96 ft)
platform surface area: 68 × 24 m (223 × 79 ft)
entire mass: approx. 2,300 t[7]
interior surface area (4 floors): 4,473 m2 (48,150 sq ft)
heated surface area (3 floors): 1,850 m2 (19,900 sq ft)
depth under station: 8.20 m (26.9 ft)
3 diesel generators: 6 × 75 kW, maximum/average power needs 150 kW/105 kW
E-10 wind generator: 30 kW
USV: 2 × 20 kW for 20 minutes
Polardiesel needed during a year (heating, power and transportation): 315,000 litres (83,000 US gal)
water supply : 25 kW snow melting using heat of the generators

Now maybe we could discuss what may have exploded and burned!

And since each frame is 10mins shows the fire burned for approximately 3hrs from 17.30 to 20.30hrs

Edited to add... Potential victims [Source]

Normally, nine people live and work at Neumayer Station during the Antarctic winter: A medical doctor who also acts as the head of the station, a meteorologist, an airchemist, two geophysicists, an engineer, an electrician, a radio operator/electronics engineer and a cook. During 2010, additional 2 construction workers stay at Neumayer the whole winter through.

Each team overwintering at the station stays there for 14 to 15 months. For nine months of that time, their only link to the outside world is by radio and internet.

I am not sure there was an explosion or a fire and I think that the 'smoke/steam' at the back of the building to the camera could be natural venting etc. But it is clear from the data provided above that there are several things that could explode and cuase and or fuel a fire. I await further information to come to light before passing any judgement on yea or nay etc.

Personal Disclosure: I checked it out on Google Earth app at 70°40′08″S 8°16′02″W. Strangely it looks like a CGI overlay!

It's why ATS is good. We can share and unite infos. Thanks for that.

Earlier, I noticed that the lights inside the windows, began as nothing, then gradually became brighter for 50 minutes, before the 'fire' above became visible. After reading this post-

What I see is a steam plume in front of a sodium light. The brightest part of the "fire" is directly in front of the light source, outwardly dimming to each side of it, A flame would have a more even distribution of brightness.

I could be wrong, but that's what I make of it.

I went back to look again. Since the lights gradually became brighter, it seemed as if there possibly could have been a fire growing inside.

The images have refreshed again now. I see something much different this time.
I believe it is called the Moon.

15:40 UTC (95/144)

15:50 UTC (96/144)

16:00 UTC (97/144)

16:10 UTC (98/144)

This also explains the change in the image from color to black & white. It is probably some sort of night vision, and is causing the moon to look much brighter.

ETA- I'll go ahead and add 16:50 UTC (102/144) also.

I am pretty sure that we were originally viewing images from yesterday. Today's images have now been updated for this same time. Today, the smoke and/or steam, is not there.

Why do you want to try and connect this to transformers exploding in a completely different part of the world? Not everything is connected.

That is one cold and desolate place omg! I hope nobody was hurt. It shows a fire and explosion.

The thing is....everything IS connected....

posted on May, 17 2011 @ 06:07 PM
Omega Logos had an excellent point about the steam. If in fact this is a venting issue and assuming that this venting is done on a scheduled basis, we should see this same activity again at the same time frame today, no?

Sorry OL, but that point you made earlier today was spot on the more I think of it. Time will tell.

transformers were connected to other countries over the weekend because of electrical problems that couldn't be explained. we had a bunch of problems besides transformers..

My first thought,when I read this title was.............................

This is interesting,by the way.........

posted on May, 17 2011 @ 10:55 PM
It's almost like the camera is switching back and forth from night mode to day mode.

BTW start at 23:30 utc till about 00:00 utc there seems to be a star? It's above the station and passing through those frames. Can it be a star or something else?

Also from 3:50 to about 6:40 that light is there. It almost looks like some kind of electrical arcing of some sort.

Plus I don't see a sodium light anywhere near there.
