Many of you know I‘m here in Sicily where I’ve always got one eye and ear open for Mt. Etna and her eruptions.
Moments ago I thought she was erupting - that’s how loud the sound was. I ran outside to look at and nope, it wasn’t her. Nothing...
The noise continues and is/was HUGE - very similar to Etna - that grumbling soaring sound - almost like a fighter jet, but then again not. Too loud
not to 'see' anything - then too soft too fast.
The 'sounds' continued. Again, I thought maybe it was a jet - but no jets, not out over the water only a strange cloud formation not far from the
shore where no other clouds were in the sky.
In the time I ran in to get my camera? The ‘rumbling’ sounds got much louder and here’s what I saw.
I’m waiting now for a short video to load to YouTube. (35 mins wait)
Between now and then I’ve looked into what Sigonella Air Force Base is ‘up to’ and I can’t find any info nor can I find anything (so far) on
any exercises or 'war games' taking place with the Italian Air. Don't rule out out - I've just not found anything yet.
A friend I’ve contacted - who lives closer down to the beach - is freaking. She has no idea what it is/was.
where I first mentioned this ‘event’ on ATS on the way to process vids and
The ONLY Photoshop work on the below photos are resizing and ‘auto tone’ - along with the red arrows of course.
---> At the moment I’m painstakingly going through the images in their HUGE form checking for any clues.
[B]Any ideas people? [/B]
There’s still 14 minutes left getting the video up. It’s short and you can’t hear the ‘noise’ well - but it’s something.
The many dark 'winged' 'specs' (so far) are barn swallows (Rondine).
