[Editor's Note: The military doesn't want us to know that they use spy satellites with nuclear power reactors, so when they decay and break up while coming down to earth, they get the media and their BS artists in officialdom to spin yarns about falling meteors. While the Illuminati manufactures radiation hysteria about Fukushima which doesn't actually exist (in order to scare people away from nuclear power and into the arms of natural gas producers), they never tell you about these hidden sources of ionizing radiation. ZS says that while it's possible that plutonium was involved with this satellite, it's more likely a less dangerous isotope like thorium . ..Ken]
Massive Fireball, Loud Boom, Over Northern California/San Francisco Area Oct 17, 2012
Early in the morning of October 18, 2012, I saw a report of a meteor falling off the coast of San Francisco. There was a video reported to have been made by a camera at the Lick Observatory in San Jose. The video was five minutes showing a body breaking into three larger pieces with small explosions and gas ejections, far too long for a meteor fall. It looked like a smaller version of the Space Shuttle Columbia break-up upon re-entry.
The SpaceWeather site where I first saw the meteor report wrote that the meteor entered the Earth's atmosphere at 14 kilometers/sec. Most meteors falling past the Earth on comet orbits are travelling three or more times faster and disintegrate in the upper reaches of the atmosphere in one to two seconds. This object fell into the stratosphere and troposphere causing a sonic boom heard by many in the Bay Area. While there are meteors that do enter the atmosphere at 14 kilometers/second and they are in a near earth orbit around the sun. this one was most likely a failed spacecraft.
This meteor was triangulated from two All Sky camera positions to have been falling in a north north-east direction and it was guessed meteorites would be found in the Marin County area. As the NNE inclination is a favoured spy satellite orbit and it was seen falling for five minutes, it most likely entered the atmosphere at 10 km/sec or about 18,600 miles per hour or low earth orbital speed.
The Lick Observatory video was suspicious on a few counts. The falling meteor was locked firmly into the center of the video frame never wavering. The tracking mechanism was sophisticated yet the video was out of focus. On such a camera, a crystal sharp focus would be automatic. From the perspective of Lick Observatory the video was falling south...meaning it was not taken from San Jose. It needed to have been taken from at least 100 miles west of San Jose from a ship or aircraft. There was a reflective "brass sphere" in the video image slightly ahead of the meteor reported to be part of the Lick Observatory dome. No observatories in the world have anything reflective inside the dome. Everything is painted matte black. The brass sphere is more likely on a specialized military tracking aircraft wing.
This spy satellite may have been as large as a bus and strongly built as it did not fragment the way the Columbia did.
One day later I watched a Dutchsinse video from St Louis. Another YouTube blogger in the same area reported a radiation spike in a recent rainfall. Dutchsinse duplicated the experiment with two Geiger counters and found mid-range elevated radiation.
It is well known that there are nuclear powered spy satellites. Thirty years ago a Russian Cosmos spy satellite fell in northern Canada. A specialized US Air Force crew was on the spot within hours scraping radioactive snow and ice into barrels. Most of the satellite was at the bottom of an ice covered lake. Everything was taken away.
It is likely the San Jose meteor spewed radiation which was carried by the jet stream across America.
If Plutonium was powering thermo-electric cells then millions were poisoned. Uranium is not as toxic as Plutonium but still deadly. Hopefully the nuclear fuel was Thorium and will dissipate quicker.
The reported Marin County crash area is more than likely NOT where the spacecraft fell. Wherever it fell there would have been USAF crews gathering up the pieces within minutes. If it fell in the ocean the Navy would be doing the gathering, processing and disposal.

The link is fixed.
The "lift" is just what the increase in conditions is referred to as. Propagation can be increased by any number of conditions (such as temperature) in the Troposphere.
October 23, 2012 ... The sun unleashed a powerful solar flare late Monday (Oct. 22), releasing waves of radiation

Though, there may very well be the occasional meteor mixed in there, though they will always spike perpendicular to the false return we're seeing (meaning they cover a broader range of frequencies).
Sporadic E or Es is an unusual form of radio propagation using characteristics of the Earth's ionosphere. Whereas most forms of skywave propagation use the normal and cyclic ionization properties of the ionosphere's F region to refract (or "bend") radio signals back toward the Earth's surface, sporadic E propagation bounces signals off smaller "clouds" of unusually ionized atmospheric gas in the lower E region (located at altitudes of approx. 90 to 160 km). This occasionally allows for long-distance communication at VHF frequencies not usually well-suited to such communication.

Just for fun....what would it look like if some big ole ships were entering the atmosphere? Does that show like a meteor? Would it be on HUGE spike?
