Reading of previous replies is fundamental.

I don't see what is supposed to be weird in this video at all. I watch clouds all the time, they change shape, morph, and are different heights. Sun light reflects off them. This is normal.

this is normal???? on planet pussyiate maybe
this is absolutely abnormal.
if you think this is normal, i will mail you $1000 worth of iou's if you can film this and put it up here
this is so the opposite of normal its its its well its just not normal

I agree, the first thing that struck me was that it doesn't look like it has anything to do with the clouds in the sky.
Looks very fake imo.

It was obviously a very cloudy day. It appears that other clouds may have been moving between the strange looking cloud and the sun and intermittently blocking the sun and letting the sun through unobstructed. That would account for the strange looking effects.

The Dino hung around for a while, since there are two videos of virtually the same thing recorded by the same youtube ID. He actually say so???

A couple of thoughts come to mind.

1: If it's a storm brewing then there could be turbulence in the clouds and this is bending/refracting the light giving the appearance of the cloud shifting?

2: Perhaps some kind of cloaked craft morphing in and around the clouds?

I'm leaning more towards my first thought but you never know!

Both video's show these things happening between a heavy/thick cloud and a soft/spread out cloud.

In the second video it looks like the thick cloud ate off a chunk of the spread out one. If you compare the beginning to the end there is a noticeable piece missing right where it was happening. The OP video looks like it has a cloud blocking the view of this interaction with another cloud behind it and higher up.

So it seems to me there could be a strange type of cloud combining(siphoning?) going on at the location of the phenomenon.

Same here, the effect was very localised and had no effect on the surrounding area so it looks like its either a fake or some kind of weird effect looking through a window.

It just doesnt look real plus the 1080p upload is suspicious when the iphone isnt capable of that.

If it was real, the untouched file should be uploaded in its original form.

I've emailed some meteorologists, I'll post when they have got back to me.

Ok so got an email back from the meteorologists, seems they passed it around the office;


Hi (took out my name). I couldn't figure it out so I polled my technical editors…..their thoughts about what you might have seen are given below. I hope you find them helpful. What an amzing sight!

Best,

Ken





From my (limited) understanding of sprites, they occur much faster and are usually difficult for the human eye to pick up. Here's a video of sprites, including footage from U of Alaska, Fairbanks, from above storms: www.youtube.com...

The "glow" reminds me of what is seen with a sun dog/parhelion, sun pillar, halo, etc., caused by reflection or refraction of light "striking" ice crystals, but the rapid changes are odd. Perhaps strong turbulence above the convective clouds?

Rick



I agree the second one seems to be spites, but I had never seen video in the daytime of them. Walt Lyons could confirm since he is the sprite expert. As for the first video, that did not seem that weird to me, but maybe I am missing something since the video is not that clear. Seems like a rain shaft with the outflow causing some interesting low-level formations as the air is lifted.



I agree, sprites or some other phenomenon related to electrical discharge.

-b



I think one of the comments had it right----sprite lightning from the top of cumulonimbus. Both videos involved convective clouds---I think they both had to do with this.

MIke





This is worth checking out (both links)………if they are real-time (not time lapse) it is unlike anything I've ever seen and I've no explanation for it. Can any of you shed light on this phenomenon?

Ken


Although they don't seem certain, the general concensus is Sprites.

Emails should be read bottom to top sorry.

For anyone wondering who I emailed, it was The American Meteorological Society.

Youre a liar and a fraud and i call you out. Anyone can plainly see that there is a drop of water or rain on your camera lens or a pane a glass you are shooting video through. This is the kind of hoax and disinformation that is the root of why no one cares or believes aliens exist.

DNA or it didnt happen.

In both cases it is easily explained. Both clips show what is commanly known as Thunderheads. Both exhibit rabdom air flow caused by updraft or above ground electronic discharge. Have any of you actually finished High School yet?

So why didn't the meteorologists say this? They aren't 100% certain what it is either, but leaning towards sprites. I think most of us know what a cumulonimbus cloud is and the anvil, but the behavior is something i've never seen, nor some other ATS members.

Thunderhead aka Cumulonimbus cloud




edit on 17-8-2011 by relocator because: (no reason given)



I believe it is. I know the first time I saw a sun pillar I was amazed.

And by the way for the record this wasn't taught in my public high school. Hell I don't remember much from High School...I guess because I've been working since I was 16. I may have graduated but public education ain't worth darn darling. This is why we find ourselves in the mess were in....

To my, admittedly, untrained eye, it looks to be magnetic (or electro-magnetic). Notice how in both videos the cloud warping is spotted near a dense stormcloud? The amount of electric charges excited/generated by a stormcloud is great (we need only look at lightning for an example). Perhaps particles (whether organic, synthetic, ice, etc.) high up in the storm cloud are being magnetically charged and pulled around by erratic electromagnetic changes within the storm cloud? We cannot rule such a phenomenon out, especially considering the massive electrical charges/releases induced by storm clouds.

Other than that, the only explanation that seems plausible is some sort of camera lens manipulation.

Those two videos were almost identical which leads me to believe they are both genuine. Regular weather phenomenon? i think not. But what..?

One of the meteorologists did ask about the speed of the video, it seems to me he isn't gelling with those others talking about interference patterns from other cloud banks, and beaming the sun in a way to alter the light patterns, perhaps on thinner cloud and stuff that is there and getting highlighted and so on. Maybe that's because in both videos all the clouds are almost motionless, (like the horses head) there is no noticeable turbulance at all, and in turbulence clouds change moment by moment.

To imeddieone4202003 two videos one taken after the other with the same scene, same/identical cloud pattern as you have noted, but that's where I differ, I think it makes them not genuine, the scene should be different.

In both vidoes, to obtain the same effect?

That's one amazing hoaxer! True diligence.



Nah there is something to this one. 2 videos of the same thing... which almost somehow appears like an embryo in the clouds at times.. lol

It's not like a white dot high in the sky moving slowly over the skies of new york, which is the same in appearance as the white dot high in the sky over italy.

I'm sick of white dots...

This however, must have an explanation!

Saw this one last night myself. There is another video from 2009 that is very similar.
I will see if I can dig it up and post the link.

It appears to be a small drop of water being manipulated on the lens - that's why the camera is pointed straight up...you can even see the edges of the water drop at one point in the video...
