41. Deep Impact—Remembering Shoemaker-Levy [Thunderbolts Website]
... astronomers. Hubble ’ s Faint Object Spectrograph (FOS) recorded strong emissions from fragment ‘ G ’ of ionized magnesium but no hydroxyl radical (OH), expected from water ice”. Also, after the flare-up in magnesium emissions there was a “dramatic change in the light reflected from the dust particles in the comet”. All told, the similarities to the Deep Impact flash are remarkable. Just after the impact of SL-9 fragment “K”, HST detected unusual auroral activity that was brighter than Jupiter ’ s normal aurora and outside their normal area. Radiation belts were disrupted. There were unexpectedly bright X-ray emissions at the time of impact. But one mystery was never explained satisfactorily: Early impact events were hidden from the Earth behind Jupiter ’ s limb. However, the Galileo spacecraft was positioned 150 million miles away from Jupiter at an angle that gave it a ringside seat for these events. But Earth-based observatories saw some of the impacts start at the same time Galileo did. “In effect, we are seeing something we didn ’ t ...
42. The Worship of Lightning [Thunderbolts Website]
... at the opposite ends symbolised the poles of the universe connected by the central axis mundi. Lightning is one of the primary manifestations of plasma in the ionosphere and the atmosphere of the earth. It is intriguing, therefore, that the complex morphology displayed in the vajrá and other ancient forms of the thunderbolt is matched by laboratory experiments involving a high-energy z-pinch plasma discharge. This striking convergence poses the question if ancient societies could have correctly remembered some of the most complex stages of a real display of plasma in the sky: an enhanced aurora such as the one recently proposed by plasma physicist Anthony Peratt could well have produced just such a display.

44. The Cloud of Jehovah [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... the present century that they have been shown to be different aspects of the same physical phenomenon: in every form, the glow discharge is a manifestation of the conduction of electricity through gases. One form occurring in nature is the faint glow known as St. Elmo's fire, seen at the top of ships' masts at night when thunderclouds are near; other natural forms are seen from sharp Alpine peaks and even the heads of human beings. The edges of aircraft wings sometimes glow when flying through thunderclouds. Another manifestation is the Aurora Borealis, the so-called Northern Lights. (1) Because the rounded head of the ship's mast wore the light of St. Elmo's fire like a crown or halo, it was later called corona (the Latin word for "crown"). As sources of high-voltage electricity were developed many years later, the same light-like phenomena were observed in the laboratory and also called coronas. They produce not only light, but audible sound as well. (2) Corona, or partial discharge, is defined as a type of ...
45. A Hex On Saturn [Science Frontiers Website]
... of the hexagon are each about 13,800 kilometers long. The entire structure rotates with a period of 10h 39m 24s, the same period as that of the planet's radio emissions, which is assumed to be equal to the period of rotation of Saturn's interior. The hexagonal feature does not shift in longitude like the other clouds in the visible atmosphere. The pattern's origin is a matter of much speculation. Most astronomers seem to favor some sort of standing-wave pattern in the atmosphere; but the hexagon might be a novel sort of aurora. More extreme speculation has Saturn's radio emissions emanating from the hexagon (something we can see and which has the right rotation period) rather than from the planet's interior (something we cannot see). (Anonymous; "A Hex on Saturn," Sky and Telescope, 77:246, 1989.) Comment. Note the similarities between the hexagon and the radial spoke structure sometimes seen in the atmosphere of Venus, as described in AVO6 in our catalog: The Moon and the Planets.

46. Planetary Electrostatic Properties [SIS Internet Digest $]
... the Sun and Earth's atmosphere tends to play an important role in establishing the hierarchy of lighter elements within our biosphere, but in my view this role is secondary in weather phenomena, while the primary vehicle in establishing class M planetary weather patterns is electrostatic in nature. Consider the swirling weather patterns of Earth, which are polar oriented. And what of thunderstorm activity, accompanied by massive capacitive discharges in the form of lightning? Moreover, consider a well known correlation between intense solar flare activity and resulting dynamic weather changes upon earth. Aurora Borealis would certainly indicate that solar activity is capable of inducing a polar oriented change within Earth's magma, and the natural hysteresis involved could explain a slight lag (in terms of weeks) between active solar flares and dynamic changes in Earths' weather. If proven (and I believe the facts of nature make it self evident) this theorem introduces the possibility of limited weather control, since electrostatic fields are easily generated. Lets have some input from those who are qualified in the scientific community. Please post your feedback to this ...
47. The Petrozavodsk Phenomenon [Science Frontiers Website]
... of September of 1977, over a vast area in the northwest of the European part of the USSR, unusual light phenomena in the atmosphere were observed, namely formation and motion of bright, luminous bodies surrounded by extended shells and emitting light rays or jets of quaint shapes. The shells transformed and diffused within 10 to 15 minutes. Besides, a more longlived, stable glow was observed, mostly in the northeastern part of the sky. These phenomena took place during disturbances of the geomagnetic field and the upper atmosphere. Somewhere, aurora borealis was seen."

48. A SKY-SPANNING AURORAL ARCH [Science Frontiers Website]
... other." (Anonymous; "Great Auroral Displays," Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Journal, 10:469, 1916.) Comment. This sharp and precisely drawn arc is so different from the swaying draperies, pulsing arcs, and "merry dancers" that characterize the usual auroral displays. We have not seen any good explanation of this phenomenon. More examples may be found in GLA2 in our catalog: Lightning, Auroras. A sky-spanning auroral arch with penants seen off the coast of Maine. A more typical aurora occurred within the arch. From Science Frontiers #115, JAN-FEB 1998.© 1998-2000 William R. Corliss Other Sites of Interest SIS.

49. Dragons in the Sky [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Sky CCNet, 15 March 2000 From email@example.com (Neil Bone) While much is made in many quarters of fireballs described as 'drakes' or dragons, in some Chinese records, it might be equally possible that these references are also to auroral displays. The twisting, serpentine form of an auroral rayed band, for example, might as easily be the source of the cited reports here. Some years ago- I think it was 1981- there was even the suggestion in New Scientist that St George's dragon was actually an aurora... Not everything in the sky has to be a meteoric fireball! ...
50. Electric Currents Big and Small [Thunderbolts Website]
... currents flowing along the axis and out along the spiral arms. Stars in the spiral arms receive their power from those galactic currents. Galaxies, in turn, are threaded like "Catherine wheels" on intergalactic Birkeland currents. The cosmic circuitry of Birkeland currents can be traced by their magnetic fields. So, far from being electrically sterile, cosmic plasma is awash with electric current filaments. And just like Frazier's plasma ball, we see the same beauty and evidence of currents in astronomical nebulae, glowing hydrogen HII regions, and planetary aurora s. We live in an Electric Universe!
