CHINA 2 HOURS BEFORE THE QUAKE:::REALLY STRANGE SKIES


Okay two different people sent me this Video, and it is very strange. There is this weird colorful display in the sky, I have no idea WHAT it is....So if Anyone out there is of a Scientific bend, tell WHAT is this ??? It looks like Something Arthur C.Clarke would explain on his Mysterious Show ....Go ahead wow me...

Now that is a real enigma, Enigma. There are claims that the phenomenon is just a circumhorizontal arc caused by the refraction of light through the ice crystals in cirrus clouds. That would make it an interesting freak event.
But there are recorded earthquake light events predating the present era, though largely considered mythical for want of any scientific evidence. There are even more recent reports from China and Japan which would suggest they are somehow related to seismic activity.
Seems science hasn’t really taken these events seriously enough to gather any real data.

WOW...you talk like a .......real scientist...isn't it amazing....and we should study it - it could save lives....
Just like when the Tsunami hit- there were warnings....aninmals fled- and birds- and Some people did know that something was going to happen...Others saw the waters retreat in Phukat and knew to clear the beachs....but sadly in other places people rushed to the beaches to scoop the many fish that were left on the beach....But anyways , I was thinking if we could know what it is ???
we could warn people...esp that live in vulnerable areas- ie. if you see this- get some place safe..

Also it's too funny- a friend sent me- Jack...and also a friend in asia...BOTH were so intrigued on how mysterious it was...

"WOW...you talk like a .......real scientist..." More like a Sunday paper feature writer :) I did a series once on natural disasters. Pretty light weight.
But one thing I did find out is that there are lots of known or suggested precursors (or warnings perhaps) for seismic disturbances.
You should recall Mt St Helens where much of the area was cleared before the first major eruption. Even so there wee deaths, including scientists who miscalculated the blast zone.
Maybe I'm just cynical today, but I doubt people take warnings seriously.

well, my oh my- that must have been a cheery column...ouch...I study disasters...and took a bunch of courses and training and even FEMA training...I don;t think you are cynical- I think people are not educated well enough...its a shame...I mean China- 70,000 people...or more...too many...but the photos show it was indeed a really bad quake...I think it was worse than an 8.0 .... 3 minutes ;-(

(( Side Story I was not living there in the NW then...funny thing...I was supposed to move there to Tacoma that month in 1980....I got a job as a Stewardess- yeah- go ahead and laugh...and then KABOOM....and there was ash and no daylight- and I got a phone call from the Airlines- and they asked if I had any respiratory problems- and I decided that sounded kind of grim- Soooo I did not become a stewardess...))

okay...I did some more research on the SKY or the Quake Omen they are calling it in China...it was seen over or in the area up to 30 minutes before the quake....and it lasted for 10 minutes....and people saw if throughout that region- there are atleast 4 different clips of it....

the Quake was very very noisy...like Thunder....and lasted almost 3 minutes...someone needs to look at all the video- I think it may be stronger than a 8.0.....

the most interesting videos- which link to this one- are the surveillance videos- they show the time- and you can time it- and it shakes hard and then starts to let up and then shakes harder...really intense...

In the Videos- the birds vanish, and there is one video with a Fish Bowl on a Counter at a hotel- and right before the quake- the water swirls and you can see the fish try to circle the outer rim- like they are trying to get out? really interesting...

I still wonder if the "Omen' was the only warning the people had...it was a big quake- felt up to 900 miles away in Bejing and in Vietnam...I do not know the depth- was it very deep or shallow...

There is a lot of detail on USGS at: EASTERN SICHUAN, CHINA

I've only scanned it so far, but it gives a great deal of background fact.

The sky looks like the Aurora Borealis but Sichuan Province is much further south.

There is much we don't understand about earthquakes.

For example, the behavior of birds and animals before an earthquake happens. How is it that they seem to know in advance and act agitated?

With the Aurora Borealis, the ionic nitrogen and neutral nitrogen gives off the red and purple color with the rippled edges. Different gases interact with the upper atmosphere and produce different colors, caused by the different compounds of oxygen and nitrogen.

Did the earth begin to leak these elements just before the earthquake happened? If this is true, it could give science a new tool in earthquake prediction and potentially save lives.

It does have a Borealis Affect...And I too have been researching it- trying to figure it out- there is a fair amount of video on it...Here is the thing- the people there are calling it the Quake Omen- but in a way I think it could be used as a warning sign- and it has been seen in other places..

Some sources say it is about Crystalline forces cause release of magnetic energy, and that people have trouble with radios and tv's when this phenom is present....

I think it is maybe a combined effect- gases release and electromagnetic energy....I am not sure, but imagine if school children looking out the window - instead of being in those schools , could have been herded quickly outside...

thanks for that link....USGS does good work...and always have great data...( it is the one agency that Bush did not FEMA-Nize...)
