Since you are more familiar than I about the strange lighting perhaps you could tell me if it is common over there or not? Or does it happen only during certain seasons? Certain elevations or etc,etc.
iAlso, since HAARP could potentially cause the SAME lighting effects, how do you KNOW that is isn't HAARP? Is your opinion based on facts or just speculation?

Well it depends on what you believe. I have witnessed it on hundreds of occasions without earthquakes. The chances of it happening are quite high depending on the sun angle and the types of clouds in the atmopshere.
Ice crystals and water vapour produce a variety of effects like sundogs, halos, rainbows etc.
Also it isnt a phenomenen restricted to China and is not seasonal. Iridescence has been recorded long before HAARP was even thought of and is a well known phenomenen within the meterological world.
Thats just my opinion as I havent found any evidence as of yet to indicate that HAARP is even close to being ivolved in this (in fact I created a thread about HAARP myths).
Like I said before....its up to you what you believe, either it be the meteorological explanation of it, or the pseudo science version of it.
