Mysterious sky phenomenon is sign of potential Earthquake

A study, published in the January/February issue of Seismological Research Letters, pulls together several strands of research to propose a mechanism by which earthquake lights form.

Mysterious glows sometimes reported before or during seismic shaking — finds that they happen most often in geological rift environments, where the ground is pulling apart.

The authors suggest that, during an earthquake, the stress of rocks grinding against each other generates electric charges, which travel upwards along the nearly vertical geological faults that are common in rift zones. When the charges reach Earth's surface and interact with the atmosphere, they create a glow.

Of the 65 earthquakes studied, 56 occurred along an active or ancient rift zone. And 63 of the 65 quakes took place where the geological faults that ruptured were almost vertical — as opposed to the shallower angles that many major faults take

Certain types of earthquakes in certain areas can set off blazes of light seconds, sometimes days, ahead of the actual quake. These can manifest themselves as floating balls of light, bluish columns shooting up out of the earth and even reverse lightning, reaching up into the sky from the ground.

Some witnesses improbably describe flames and smoke spurting out of the ground; others mention glowing clouds that could be an aurora, or streaks of heavenly fire that could be meteors.

In 1727, for instance, a New England man walking his dog one October evening felt the ground start to shake and watched a ball of light roll onto the animal, which yelped.

Near Ebingen, Germany, in November 1911, a woman reported seeing glows that moved along the ground “like snakes” as a quake began.

Off the Peruvian coast in August 2007, a fisherman reported the sky turning violet a few minutes before the sea began shaking.

And a bizarre colorful Earthquake light in the sky was observed about 30 mins before the May 12, 2008 Sichuan earthquake took place. This was recorded in Tianshui, Gansu province 450km northeast of epicenter. (Video below.)

Earthquake lights could raise awareness about them as a possible quake warning. source

Massive UFO near the sun shoots out into space

Images captured by NASA's SDO-AIA 171 satellite show a massive spherical object near the sun until it shoot out into space.  According to NASA, the strange appearance is actually a type of solar activity called a prominence, a type of solar activity, which is normally attached to the sun before shooting out into space, like the infamous UFO/prominence image from 2012.  But the object captured on October 11, 2021 is not attached to the sun, we first see an elongated shadow moving through the plasma clouds before the actually spherical object becomes visible. So, instead of a prominence could this have been a massive spacecraft?  

Partially cloaked triangular object appears next to the sun

On October 15, 2021 the LASCO C2 satellite captured a series of strange lights near the sun.  The lights are exactly opposite and parallel to each other and seems to be connected, forming a triangular shape.  Since it seems impossible that this phenomenon is just a natural or rare occurrence in space, we assume that this partially cloaked triangular object is some kind of advanced technology used by an intelligent race.  

People keep seeing strange lights in the sky
