Interesting, well the "research station" should know what it is, since weather is their top project.

The research on Marion Island focuses mainly on the following themes:

Weather and Climate studies;

I call this technology a "cloud rake". It is a form of weather modification technology that is different from HAARP. I see evidence of this technology in the sky all the time now. By transmitting an alternating electrostatic/electromagnetic field, the water molecules become arranged in lines or waves. Then by changing the wavelength, clouds can be "raked" together by decreasing the wavelength. Conversely, the clouds can be pulled apart by increasing the wavelength. What you can do with a technology like this I leave to your imagination. It looks to me like the Indians have built a fairly large "cloud rake" transmitter and were testing it when these images were taken.

Gravity waves !! .......


as wildspace has already said they are gravity waves, a well known thing .

there are many examples on the net .

Indians you say?

Funny that Heliophant mentioned India too, only to retract this when he realised that india is no where near the island...

Nice try though

Yeah I was a bit off. A wee bit. Lol. Being wrong from time to time is a good thing as long as you can admit it & learn from it.

Definitely doesn't look natural. Rings are symmetrical and equally spaced out. By the looks of it, harp or some other government experimental machine did this. Weird if it wasn't done by cgi.

I've emailed the facility asking what their thoughts are on this. Maybe the meteorological and RF researchers there at the island will have some insight.


I am writing this email after recently discovering the existence of your impressive research facility on Marion Island by way of QRZ.com and a host of other HAM radio websites. I was causally investigating a strange cloud formation that recently appeared above the island as reported at www.universetoday.com...

It is my understanding that your facility is staffed by meteorological researchers, so I thought I would inquire as to what your thoughts are with regards to this odd cloud formation. Might it be the product of a natural WX processes unknown to me, or might it have to do with RF operations on Marion Island? As an 802.11 wireless engineer and IT specialist, I'm quite intrigued by the later possibility.

Many thanks for reading my email and for whatever information you may soon reply with.

Fine, not India then but I stand by the rest of my post. Not gravity waves - no way.

Such an interesting photo!!!

Same thing happened in 2005 above Amsterdam Island.


From NASA's Earth Obseratory website:

In mid-December 2005, the diminutive Amsterdam Island made waves—not in the Indian Ocean where it resides, but in the clouds overhead. Described casually as wave clouds, these features took on the shape of a giant ship before blending in with a larger cloud formation to the north and east.

------

The volcano’s summit, poking above the ocean surface, conspired with atmospheric conditions to make these clouds. Pushed by wind, air ascended one side of this island then descended the other. As air rises, it cools and expands, and water vapor in the air condenses to form clouds. As air falls, the clouds evaporate. If the air is uniformly humid, it will likely form a uniform layer of clouds. If the air is dry, it may produce no clouds. But if the air contains alternating moist and dry layers, clouds form only in the moist layers of air. Known as lenticular clouds, they often look like flipped-over plates. Many of these clouds strung together form larger wave patterns like the one seen here.

"Hey! What's that strange sound in the sky?


You mean something like this?

(thats what your post reminded me of) Me, I have no idea.

this clip shows why every "zoom button" should be broken off, and thrown away....."duh, hey, i think i'll keep zooming in and out because i have this zoom button and i know nothing about photography"

Yes, let's disregard all the pictures and scientific explanation of this happening before, because a conspiracy theory sounds way cooler.

The Amsterdam island clearly produced the same phenomenon (full-sized image) and the origin of the waves is clearly the very prominent cliff on its south-western side:





I found another Wiki link with more pictures and explanation: en.wikipedia.org...


A wave cloud is a cloud form created by atmospheric internal waves.

The atmospheric internal waves that form wave clouds are created as stable air flows over a raised land feature such as a mountain range, and can form either directly above or in the lee of the feature. As an air mass travels through the wave, it undergoes repeated uplift and descent. If there is enough moisture in the atmosphere, clouds will form at the cooled crests of these waves. In the descending part of the wave, those clouds will evaporate due to adiabatic heating, leading to the characteristic clouded and clear bands. The cloud base on the leeward side is higher than on the windward side, because precipitation on the windward side removes water from the air.

It is possible that simple convection from mountain summits can also form wave clouds. This occurs as the convection forces a wave or lenticular wave cloud into the more stable air above.

could make a good shot for M.Murphy's new movie 'What in the hell are they spraying'.

It's called the South African National Antarctic Programme, run by South Africans, Marion Island is one.

And it would be as truthful as his last videos.

And by truthful I mean no truth at all.

HAARP. Ha ha ha ha ha.

As I was driving through Texarkana, Arkansas, into Texas, yesterday morining, I noticed the clouds looked exactly the same as this picture...ribbons...and they were bent...I have seen these types of clouds ALL OF MY LIFE...since I am over fifty years old, it is not HAARP that is causing it. Unless it is now a conspiracy theory that HAARP has been around since the 1960's.

If these type of cloud formation is "normal" how come we don't see this type of cloud happen more often?


Semantics...perhaps a better word, rather than normal, would be natural...

Kangaroos are normal...how come we don't see them more often?

Bats are normal...how come we don't see them more often?

Could be the conditions leading to their natural appearance in front of our eyes are not conducive to their appearance (i.e., not in Australia, or not outside at dusk or dawn)

I live just north of Dallas, TX.

I checked the weather on 3/21 (2am) and saw some weird rings on the radar that I've haven't seen before. I grabbed a screen shot of it and went to bed. Having heard of Haarp rings, I wondered if we would have bad weather the next day. (Actually, later on that same day 3/21)

When I left to pick my boy up from school that evening, I saw clouds that I've NEVER seen before! I immediately remembered the radar rings from before I went to bed. I love clouds and am always observing and taking pictures of them. I've seen banded-type of clouds before but this was completely different than anything I've ever seen.

I noticed this thread and when I saw the satellite image, it makes me wonder if this is what it looks like from the ground up. These clouds were solid bands going as far as the eye could see in both directions and in between each band, you could see blue sky clear all the way. It was odd.....

That looks like Morning Glory clouds, also a very interesting phenomenon. en.wikipedia.org...
