... , then again approached the Earth, shrouded in a dark column of gases which looked like a pillar of smoke during the day and a pillar of fire by night and the Earth once more passed through the atmosphere of the comet, this time at its neck.' [2 It has been for some time this author's opinion that this 'mysterious pillar' is not a comet's tail but the Earth's north and south magnetic poles illuminated by the joint action of electrical discharge and the mingling of earthly and cometary gases- ie a giant aurora. In this paper I shall argue that the early reports from the Jupiter/Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 collision can cast further light on the aurora thesis and bring us closer to understanding the full significance of Velikovsky's catastrophic vision. Comet of Typhon It may have evaded the scrutiny of even the most assiduous Velikovskians that there is very little direct evidence for the appearance of a comet during both the Exodus and the Joshua stories. All the indicators of a great meteoric shower are in place and it can be argued that any well-informed tribal leader ...

... pole and south pole. Charged particles from space from the solar wind, to be precise- travel through these poles into the lower regions of the atmosphere. Any meteorologist will tell you that the weather is influenced by disturbances in the magnetic field of the earth, themselves caused by the solar wind. The inflowing particles form an extremely sensitive plasma. The plasma glows on the more extreme occasions and especially during electrical discharges. The bewildering transformations of the magnetic field then become visible to the human eye. The result is the aurora. AN EXTREME AURORA In order to see the northern lights one has to travel to the utmost north of Alaska, Canada or Scandinavia these days and even then you need to be lucky to spot one. But the northern lights have not always been such sporadic events. Fresh insights in plasma physics have led to revolutionary discoveries, of which the ramifications can hardly be fathomed as yet. Extensive laboratory research has enabled scholars increasingly to come to grips with the complicated morphology of plasma: how does it behave under which conditions? ...

Together with the ionospheric closure current and the magnetospheric generator these form the complete auroral current circuit. The figure shows a north south section through the structures that usually extend several hundreds of kilometers in the east west direction. Before the first satellites were put into orbit, most scientists believed electrical phenomena couldn't exist in space. When those first satellites encountered streams of charged particles, the inertia of that prior belief prevented the scientists from seeing the streams as electrical currents: The streams were named "radiation belts". Magnetic fields in space are easy to measure; electric currents are not ...

... pressure, sharply bounded --seem more "real" than other classes of "states." The prototypical "real" substance is stone. It took a long time for people to recognize the reality of such things as air --transparent, indefinite boundaries, indistinct resistance. People had to accumulate a lot of experience with "derivative effects" before they filled in the gap in their "solid" senses with the concept of a "gas." It's taken even longer to fill in the gap around the concept of electricity. The aurora --a "glowing vacuum"--seems spooky and "unreal." To produce the aurora, electric currents flow in "empty tubes" that are several kilometers in diameter. The currents generate light and radio waves and x-rays that consume more power than is produced by all our "solid" coal-burning, oil-fired and water-driven generators. These currents are comprised of widely separated (compared to our usual experiences of density) charged particles. Irving Langmuir called the medium that carried these currents "plasma" because of its lifeblood-like behavior, and ...

June 10, 1982. Near Sturgis, Michigan. About 3:00 A.M., two young women were driving in a semi-rural area. Fog made visibility poor. It began to rain-- a brown jelly-like slime that smeared the windshield. A rotten-egg odor pervaded the area. The car engine stopped, and the two began to walk to find assistance. After 50 yards, they encountered millions of small rays of "lightning" flashing everywhere. They were 2-3 feet long and reached high into the sky. Looking back toward the car, they saw a reddish fluorescent glow with streams of light coming down from the sky to the glowing region. Grass and weeds along the roadside were standing straight up and glowing. Deep-red lines of light were seen dancing on the road. They returned to the car, and it felt hot to the touch! Soon, clouds moved in and the display ...

This false-color image of Saturn in ultraviolet light shows the complete circle of an aurora around Saturn s south pole and part of the aurora around its north pole. From almost the beginning of the space age, plasma physicists have known that electric currents flow from regions high above Earth s equator to the auroral regions around the magnetic poles and that these circuits power the auroras. Presumably, Saturn s auroras are lit by similar circuitry. But conventional astrophysicists persist in describing auroras with meteorological metaphors: “hydrogen gas excited by electron bombardment” that responds to “changes in the solar wind.” ...

Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 121: Jan-Feb 1999 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Tunguska Afterglow June 30, July 1-3, 1908. England. We quote from a London cable to the New York Times. "Several nights through the week were marked by strange atmospheric effects which Dr. Norman Lockyer of the South Kensington Solar Physics Laboratory believes to be a display of the aurora borealis, though personally I have not observed any colored streamers. "Following sunsets of exceptional beauty and twilight effects remarkable even in England, the northern sky at midnight became light blue, as if the dawn were breaking, and the clouds were touched with pink, in so marked a fashion that police headquarters was rung up by several people, who believed a big fire was raging in the north of London." (Anonymous; "Like Dawn at Midnight," New York Times, July 5, 1908. Cr. M. Piechota) Comment. Actually, all of northern Europe saw a succession of very ...

19. Plasma in the Lab and in Rock Art [Thunderbolts Website]
... ” Peratt and his assistants and collaborators also recorded the fields of view of the ancient artists and the locations of the images with GPS instruments. By plotting this data on computerized topographical maps, he can calculate where the various forms occurred in the Earth s ancient plasmasphere (what astronomers call the magnetosphere). Peratt surmised that a surge of power in the currents driving the auroras had set off the sequence of instabilities. The entire pre-historical sky around the globe would have appeared to come alive with a shimmering, shining “enhanced aurora” that stretched from pole to pole. It would have featured exactly those abstract figures and stick men and strange animal-like shapes that appear only in rock art and in high-energy plasma discharges. He contends that the ancient artists were witnesses to this “enhanced aurora” and that they recorded what they saw on the most durable“ recording device” available rock surfaces. From the difference in scale between a laboratory spark and an auroral discharge, Peratt estimates that the ancient displays would have lasted “for at least a few centuries ...
