The Night of Phelegethon! Strange Space Phenomenon observed in Australia and Hawaii

The Night of Phelegethon!

In Greek mythology, the river Phlegethon "fire-flaming" was one of the five rivers in the infernal regions of the underworld, along with the rivers Styx, Lethe, Cocytus, and Acheron.

Plato describes it as "a stream of fire, which coils round the earth and flows into the depths of Tartarus". It was parallel to the river Styx. It is said that the goddess Styx was in love with Phlegethon, but she was consumed by his flames and sent to Hades. Eventually when Hades allowed her river to flow through, they reunited.

Dozens of rare bright Sprites (space lightning) triggered by the discharge of positive lightning between an underlying thundercloud and the ground have been filmed by amateur astronomer David Finlay who witnessed the space phenomenon from Kiama in Australia on the night of July 18, 2017.

David who was really surprised by the strange space phenomenon said: “It was a Sprite Phlegethon.”

The strange sky phenomenon not only appeared in Australia, a cloudcam located at the Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii captured another amazing lightning-like phenomenon known as a Gigantic Jet.

Gigantic Jets are related to sprites, but more powerful and they are true space weather phenomena.

Frankie Lucena of Puerto Rico, who processed the video said: The thunderstorm was north of the observatory on the night of July 24, 2017. There were several Gigantic Jets captured by the cloudcam but not all of them were complete. The ripples in the sky high above. ( Gigantic Jet around the 0.05 mark in the second video.)

There are lots of lights which are just reflections. The one this video is about is the bright object which comes in from the upper right of screen. It does turns and then settles near three line where it flashes very bright and appears in different places. It then flies off to the left, then makes a hard right turn.

This was live on the Yellowstone cam at Old faithful on May 5, 2019. Kat slowed the video down because whatever this was moved very fast.

Boynton woman's video captures rare 'positive' lightning bolt

When Erica Hite was filming a thunderstorm on Sunday in her home in Boynton Beach, Florida she had her camera ready at just the right time to capture a weird bolt of lightning.


The National Weather Service in Miami identified the unusual weather phenomena.as 'positive lighting,' or a continuous current, which is up to ten times more powerful than a typical flash.

Hite told the Palm Beach Post: 'It was crazy. Very scary, very loud.' 'It was just at the right place at the right time. I could probably never in my life get something like that again.'

Down the Lunar Rabbit-hole

Plans are being made for colonization of the moon and it must be ready before 2029.


Countries like the US, Russia, China as well as large private companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin are engaged in a sort of race to the moon. And it is not just a race, but more a total plan, in which human colonies will be built on the moon.

NASA revealed a new name for its moon program:Artemis. She is a Greek goddess of the moon and twin sister of Apollo. NASA astronauts are going to land on the surface of the Moon by 2024, including the first woman and next man.


Last week, Jeff Bezos, the founder of the Blue Origin, unveiled alunar landerat a mysterious invite-only event in Washington D.C. and suggests his firm will hit VP Pence's 2024 deadline for putting humans back on on the moon by 2024.The plan could ultimately serve as a stepping stone for colonization of the moon and deeper space targets, Bezos suggested.
