Satan’s Aurora Borealis in the sky over Strezhevoye, Russia

Alexey Yakovlev took some images of an odd phenomenon in the sky over Strezhevoye, Tomsk Region in Russia on October 26, 2017 at the moment he and his friends observed the aurora borealis.

The ball of light appeared at 22:08 local time in the west, floated to the east, then to the north before it gradually faded away.

At first he thought that it was a sort of radiance but after the unusual ball of light began to expand it became clear that it was not radiance and he became a bit scared before realizing that he probably accidentally took images of the secret launch of a rocket from Plesetsk.

And indeed, Russia did a successful test of its ‘Satan 2’ nuclear missile program. The rocket, (The RS-28 Sarmat) traveled about 5,900 kilometers before hitting its target on the Kura test range, created the odd but beautiful display in the sky.

HAARP Fires Back Up, Will Create Strange Glows!

During four nights this week the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) will spring to life after three years of dormancy, and heat the highest wisps of our atmosphere directly above.

Scientists are running experiments in an attempt to create artificial auroras. Using the HAARP antennas as the energy source they will beam 2.1 megawatts of radio energy into the ionosphere which is the region that starts at 100 kilometers above the ground.

Then the radio signals will excite electrons and turn them into waves of relatively hot ionized gas, or plasma in the atmosphere and create air-glow in basically the same colors as the natural aurora.

According to the scientists they want to learn more about the artificial aurora as it helps them to understand the natural aurora!

Strange “Aurora Sounds” that sound like Star Wars blasters recorded in Sweden

For centuries, Arctic sky watchers have occasionally reported strange sounds filling the air as Northern Lights danced overhead. Hisses, crackles, and even loud “claps” have been heard and recorded. It may be time to add a new sound to the menagerie: blaster fire.

Photographer Oliver Wright who was inside the Arctic Circle said: “On Christmas Night 2016, I was standing beneath an intense display of auroras in Abisko, Sweden, when I heard something that sounded like Star Wars blasters.”

As the lights danced overhead, a series of rat-a-tat ‘swooshes’ emanated from a nearby set of power lines. “Other bystanders heard it, too,” he says. “I rushed closer to the power lines and was able to record a sample using my iPhone.”

Wright says that the sounds waxed and waned in sync with the auroras overhead; the brighter the lights, the louder the sounds, reports Spaceweather.

What’s going on?

“Aurora sounds” have long been a controversial topic. Some researchers insist that they exist only in the imagination of the listener, but there is growing evidence that they are real.

The sounds Wright recorded may be a result of “electrophonic transduction”– that is, the conversion of electromagnetic energy into mechanical motion. At the time of the Christmas aurora outburst, magnetic fields around Abisko were seething with activity.

Physics 101: Unsettled magnetic fields can cause currents to flow in power lines. Strong low-frequency currents can literally shake objects, launching acoustic vibrations into the air.

Wright may have recorded the unique sound of those power lines swaying in response to the magnetic storm?
