500,000 lives at risk as dangerous Campi Flegrei Supervolcano is Waking Up

A supervolcano that last erupted nearly 500 years ago and spewed ash across Europe for eight consecutive days is showing signs of reawakening.

The Campi Flegrei supervolcano which is 8 miles wide lies beneath the Bay of Naples in southern Italy and contains 24 craters along with numerous geysers and vents.


There has been a recent decrease in gas pressure at the supervolcano, which combined with an increase in temperature of the hydrothermal reservoir means the magma may be approaching critical degassing pressure, scientists wrote in the journal Nature on Dec 20, 2016.

The supervolcano is Italian for “Burning Fields” and has notable eruptions that occurred 39,000 and 12,000 years ago. The first eruption caused heinous weather changes, toxic levels of sulfur in the air which caused dark red sunsets for a year, and tons acid rain.

As the volcano sits directly under more than half a million people which means that at the moment the volcano will erupt, it would put the lives of all these people at risk. For comparison, when Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the Italian city of Pompeii in ash, it killed 2,000 people.

The Italian government has raised the threat level of the supervolcano from green to yellow, meaning that it now requires scientific monitoring 24/7, according to National Geographic.

 

A Day in Pompeii:

Zero One created a stunning animation to feel the same drama and terror of the town's citizens long ago, and witness how a series of eruptions wiped out Pompeii over 48 hours.

  1. a brilliant depiction though, I doubt there would have been any actual visibility from these perspectives as smoke and ash would be so thick you couldn't breath or see.

USB stick found with astonishing 1900s images of planets and UFOs in space

A man named Quisto, living in a small village near Berlin, Germany found a usb stick with a strange symbol carved into it on a parking lot near the so-called "Steintor".


Later on he put the usb stick in his laptop opened it and to his surprise he saw many old 1900's images of what seems like planets, space and UFOs.


According to Quisto, who has no idea who possessed the usb stick, he decided to share the 28 images hoping that someone has an answer to these mysterious images.


It looks like the incredible images are authentic but of course we have to keep in mind that it could be a hoax, but according to a friend of Quisto the stick contains old Voyager satellite recordings and files that are not supposed to be public as he has never seen something like that.


NASA launched the Voyager 1 on September 5, 1977 and the Voyager 2 42 years ago on August 20, 1977, to study the solar system’s most distant planets.

Since its launch, the Voyager 2 has encountered several planets, am…

Partially cloaked Triangle UFOs caught over Melbourne, Florida and the Netherlands

Last week, the same type of a triangle-shaped UFO has been caught on camera over Melbourne, Florida and the Netherlands.

Despite that both UFOs are partially cloaked, the upper part of the hull is still visible between the clouds.

The question is "What are these things and what they are doing in our skies?"

These objects are UFOs controlled by an intelligent alien race? Or more likely, we are looking at the next generation man-made triangle craft.

It is quite possible that both craft are updated versions of the TR-3B which is part of a reverse-engineering black project.

In the next video Mrmb333 talks about these two objects.


Plane passenger captured cigar-shaped UFO above Canada

The plane passenger on board of the commercial airliner 'Flying Swoop Airlines' flying from Hamilton to Abbotsford on November 30, 2018 was about halfway through he flight when he spotted a huge cigar-shaped object in the distance.

The passenger was able to film the UFO that seems to be parked at high altitude.

Triangle UFO over Pentagon

In the bizarre clip, what appears to be a giant black triangle can be seen hovering over the US Department of Defence.
