This streaking artifact only happens with digital, solid-state cameras that have only become common in the past decade or two.  This streaking effect does not happen with photographic film and chemical developement, so no… it would not have been reported back in the ‘old days’.

Gawd I feel like such an old fart, now.  🙁

Thanks Maya

I bow to your professional expertise. A case of only believing half of what you see. I’d like to know what those people taking those pictures actually were taking a picture of. If as you said they were unaware and didn’t see the streak or beam until after taking the picture it would sure add credibility to what you say. On the other hand, if they were actually photographing the streak or beam it would certainly suggest something other than a trick of photography. In this case I guess we’ll never know. Every day is a learning experience. Thanks!!

Aguilla and silverngold=cheers to u both, my friends!

Maya=your learned response has only one problem…if the shafts are due to some defect or some odd angle in the photographic device, then they would have been reported–on a widespread basis–round the world, for many years…wouldn’t they?

Good questions… ones I also asked myself.   Yes… it is possible for the cloud image overlay to ‘modulate’ the streak as it is shifted off.  For the reflections on the water… think of the water as a mirror.  It sees the lightning flash also, and the water pool image also overloads the sensor.  In the case of the puddles in the foreground, there is just enough light to make the sensor streak ‘fuzzy’ but not a solid streak to the edge of the plate… so you can make out the dark ground around the puddle.   That one is a bit different, but there are many complexities to the optical and electrical microstructure of the sensor plate.. many variations… that can cause responses like this.

In TV cameras for field use, they go to great pains to eliminate this streaking effect in the design of the CMOS sensor plate.  They are expensive, and will still streak if you catch the sun with too wide an exposure.    The personal still cameras for consumer use use cheap CMOS designs that work OK under “Normal” conditions, but no attempt is made to supress these out-of-bounds bright spots.   They are all a bit different, depending on chip design.

Your technical summary of the light beams from heaven are certainly feasible but cannot compete with Richie’s divine emanations of ayn soph

For many years, almost all of the things I wanted to write or say, have been stymied by a recently coined term referred to as “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS”! Although I consider myself rather fluent in the English language, that term was not in my vocabulary. My curiosity got the best of me and I decided to do a little research and after two weeks of chasing fruitless leads, I found what I’d been looking for at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence Missouri . A unnamed source there sent me copies of four telegrams that were between Harry Truman and Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the Surrender Agreement. The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received, not a word has been added or deleted!

(1) Tokyo , Japan
0800-September 1,1945
To: President Harry S Truman
From: General D A MacArthur
Tomorrow we meet with those yellow bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions!
(2) Washington, D C
1300-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur
From: H S Truman
Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!

(3) Tokyo , Japan
1630-September 1, 1945

To: H S Truman
From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz

Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?

(4) Washington, D C
2120-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
From: H S Truman
Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!

Now, with special thanks to my friends at the Truman Museum and Harry, you and I finally have a full understanding of what “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS” really means!

I am sure you have heard (despite the main stream media ignoring

 The founder of this despicable organization Margaret Sanger was an 
eugenicist who wanted to rid the world of inferior races and handicapped
 people. Hitler was influenced by her ideas. The Bush family financed 
Sanger to start PP. The bush family also helped finance the natzis in 
world war II. What has this got to do with vaccines? Lots, Bill and 
Melinda Gates Foundation has 
funneled hundreds of millions of dollars into vaccine programs targeting
 people all over the world. Intrestingly Bill gates father William 
Gates, Sr. served on the national board of Planned Parenthood 
has remained committed to the eugenics agenda for many decades. Bill 
Gates polio vaccine program caused 47,500 cases of paralysis deaths.
There are many whistle blowers starting to come out now.

Maya @ 13:52 Thanks for a great explanation

Posted by silverngold @ 15:59 on August 22, 2015  

I went back and reviewed the photos again and it brings to mind a couple questions.

Would your explanation also cover the fact that some of the flashes you mention seem to be partially behind the clouds in the picture?? If it is a flash as you describe it seems they should be totally in the foreground.

Also, would the flash also include the reflection in the water as shown in some of the photos?? They appear to be actual reflections and not a continuation of a flash.

I bow to your superior knowledge and admit I have zero experience with photography but those two things do not compute in my mind.

Here are those photos again. Thanks for anything you can add that would help explain the above…….Silverngold

We might just be ready to experience the financial apocalypse. Noland could be right.

Whether they rally the SM back on Monday OR NOT, the last couple of days are at minimum a warning shot.

I know the end is nigh because my brother-in-law told me how great the Louis Navallier fund was doing (up 30% per year) and then Navallier was a guest on CNBC. 🙂

The only question is whether pm’s will be the winning hand. OR NOT.

Buygold @ 8:57 – those “Light Beams”

Posted by Maya @ 13:52 on August 22, 2015  

I have been a television broadcast engineer for a good portion of my life.  With the demise of ‘tube sensors’ and implementation of CMOS  Solid-state image sensors in TV cameras and now every type of personal non-film digital cameras, I have seen streaks like this often.   The clue in these images is that it is associated with a lightning flash, or other very bright spot or reflection.

When a CMOS image sensor is exposed to a ‘hot spot’ it goes into a temporary overload condition.   The momentary exposure image is moved off the sensor plate by a digital ‘register shift’ to the edge of the image plate.  A ‘hot spot’ of light image will leave a bright streak like this as it is digitally shifted off the edge of the sensor plate.  It is an artifact of the image sensor.

Another important clue is that the photographers always deny ‘seeing’ this light beam with their eyes when they take the picture.  It is always discovered afterward when they look at the recorded image.  It is a sensor artifact… not real.

Thus endeth the epistle of the apocalypse.

The end is nigh, brother, the end is nigh! World financial mkts. are like a pie crust stretched across the roof of a volcano!

This Is Not A ‘Correction’……..It’s The Beginning Of The Global Bubble Unwind

by Doug Noland • August 22, 2015

August 17 – Reuters Breakingviews (Edward Chancellor): “Financial markets, like religions, are faith-based networks. The complex structures of assets and liabilities that comprise markets are held together by a set of underlying beliefs. Unlike religions, however, financial dogmas are occasionally shown to be false. We experienced such a moment last week, when the Chinese authorities chose to devalue their currency.”

Contemporary global finance is a complex “system” of interwoven (electronic) “faith-based networks.” As the bursting of the global Bubble unfolds, myriad “financial dogmas” will be exposed as bogus. Too many have been little more than chicanery.

I really fear for the unwind of the “global government finance Bubble” – the grand finale of a multi-decade period of serial Bubbles. It’s history’s first systemic global Bubble, encompassing the world’s Credit systems, securities markets and monetary systems more generally. Excesses have engulfed the heart of “money” and Credit throughout both the “developing” and “developed” world. Central banks (of all stripes) have printed Trillions of “money” and Trillions more have been created in the process of leveraging securities and other assets. This type of monetary inflation invariably incentivizes destabilizing speculation, fraud, malfeasance and wealth redistribution. It’s fomented a geopolitical tinderbox.

I allow my mind to imagine the type and poor quality of assets on (bloated) Chinese, Brazilian, Russian, Asian and EM bank balance sheets – yet it’s surely a lot worse. I ponder how desperate governments will use their state directed lenders to stimulate and obfuscate – and then I contemplate the scope of future government bailouts. On a global basis, I believe there is today more speculative leverage in global currencies and securities markets than ever – and I fear my bearish imagination might only scratch the surface. There have been too many years of financial manipulation, innovation, experimentation and exploitation – on an unprecedented globalized scale.

the water wizards in California might want to take a look at the oglalla aquifer history. It takes centuries to naturally replace water under ground.

It might be that after years of chemtrails and prepping the atmosphere that the aliens have finally been transported to the earth. OR, it could be that CERN is finally opening worm holes. Or it could be as R640 said. OR, it could just be someone who put out some fake photos on the internet.

Regardless, digging holes sounds like a fine idea.

I’m not buying her assertion.  I read Trump as having what might be a world record ego.  He schmoozes with all of the celeb’s, rich, connected etc. etc. etc. all the time.  Doesn’t seem to me that he has to be in bed with any of them. Its all just fodder for his ego.

I have no idea what kind of president he would make, but I do know the current 2 party system is screwing over this nation and much of the world and I am sick of the massive lies and hollow promises spewed by politicians of both parties.  I am a little curious to see if the repulsivcans could prevent him form running as long as he has the votes.

Given the dam-o-craps predilection for lying and vilifying, this could set a new low for the crapola spewed out as political adds from the leftist slime hit the airways.  Just think of Reed telling blatant lies in the 2012 cycle, and later gloating to the press “it worked didn’t it!”.

The longer Trump stays the current “leader” the more we see the attacks on him form dam near every direction.  Personally I am entertained by the media circus both for and against. They basically just keep playing video’s of his quips in short sound bytes and even a few minutes of his rants as he continues his “run”.  The obvious attempts ,by the repulsive party, the left, and the status quo slime behind the curtain, all seem to take their shots and the shots seem to back fire.

His issues and his observation that “DC politicians are stupid and incompetent” is received with cheers and agreement!  Part of me would love it to see the current parties get slammed at the pols and Trump becoming the poster boy for anti-establishment-ism.

What we are watching is a “reality show” actually occurring.  JMIO

Buygold @ 8:57…….Don`t know

Posted by silverngold @ 9:56 on August 22, 2015  

Something to ponder all right. Wild guess is since it is accompanied by what appears to be lightening in some images maybe the new US laser death ray weapon target practicing? It would be interesting to know if there is a timing that matches the orbit of one of the satellites?


One would think that this would be reported by MSM.

Posted by Scruffy @ 9:36 on August 22, 2015  
Oh yeah! I forgot MSM is a propaganda outlet not a news community.
The rate at which land across vast areas of California are sinking due to overconsumption of groundwater is higher than ever, with some places subsiding two inches a month, a new NASA report says. It comes as the state’s farmers pump water faster amid the historic drought.

While California has been sinking for decades, the current rate is among the highest ever measured around the world. The alarming findings of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab are based on satellite and aerial photos and measurements of land subsidence in the state.

An area near Corcoran, in the Tulare basin, sank 13 inches in one recent eight-month period, according to the study conducted for the State Department of Water Resources. A stretch near the California Aqueduct, a key leg of the state canal and pipeline system that brings freshwater from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, sank 8 inches in just four months last year.

The problem is not limited to the San Joaquin Valley, the most arid part of the Central Valley of California. Land near Arbuckle in Colusa County sank five inches during the last half of 2014, the NASA report said.

Heavy pumping of groundwater causes clay between water pockets to collapse and ground to sink. This may damage critical infrastructure and also makes it harder for groundwater reservoirs to replenish. It may also hinder water from flowing through its natural underground pathways.

“Roads can be broken by fissures, pipelines have been exhumed, and the slope of the land can be altered, changing drainage patterns,” the NASA report warns.

Groundwater consumption remains at a historic high amid the drought, while its levels are dropping to record lows of up to 100 feet below previous measurements, says Mark Cowin, head of the California Department of Water Resources.

“We are pumping at historic levels,” Cowin said in a statement cited by AP. “Groundwater acts as a savings account to provide supplies during drought, but the NASA report shows the consequences of excessive withdrawals as we head into the fifth year of historic drought.”
“We will work together with counties, local water districts and affected communities to identify ways to slow the rate of subsidence and protect vital infrastructure such as canals, pumping stations, bridges and wells.”

California, a major farming state, has been reluctant to regulate groundwater pumping until Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill last year ordering local jurisdictions to draw up rules. Most areas have until 2020 to comply, with some able to postpone it till 2022.


One must wonder about the future of kalifornicate if the el nin’0 doesn’t re-hydrate the state.  It is almost un-thinkable what could happen to the nation’s economy if the population flee’s and the value of real estate in the golden state crashes.  Not to mention if they can’t get enough water to continue producing most of the nations fresh fruits/veggies.
