    Secret missile-launch or lens flare? Bizarre streak over naval station triggers conspiracy theories

    More pics at link.


    A missile launch? Or just a meteor flash? A mysterious object has been spotted over an air base in Washington state. The puzzle has led to a of speculation and questions, but so far there have been no solid answers.



    On Sunday morning, at 3:56am Greg Johnson of Skunk Bay Weather managed to capture a mysterious vertical light streak on the northern Kitsap Peninsula. His 20-second exposure picture shows an orange-colored line with a luminous tail piercing through the clouds, appearing to be a launched missile.

    Puzzled by what he witnessed, Johnson asked the public for help. The story quickly caught the attention not only of online users but also of local TV stations, who contacted Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and even the Pentagon to get their take on the sighting.

    “They all said it didn’t come from them…. They said they don’t have the facility to launch large missiles,” Johnson wrote in a Facebook post.

    “I ran this image by Robert Lunsford of the American Meteor Society and he said it was definitely not a meteor. It looked like a missile launch to him as well,” Johnson said, before sharing the image with Cliff Mass, a professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington, who also said it was “definitely not a meteor.”

    “It really looks like the ascent of a rocket,” Mass wrote in his blog, noting that he has never seen missiles being fired from the nearby Naval Air Station, used to host combat and transport air vehicles but having no missile facilities.


    The Navy seems just as puzzled as the rest of the public over what they have seen. “There's a lot of speculation around here,” Tom Mills, the spokesman from the Naval base, told Fox 59. “But it's definitely not a missile launch.”

    To try and explain the phenomenon – which Naval Air Station said could be an ordinary lens flare – the Drive online publication even reached out to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) which admitted that it “had no idea what it was,” and stressed that it had registered “no anomalies on radar or strange reports that morning that would explain the image.”

    Following reports that an air ambulance helicopter was flying in the vicinity of the northern Kitsap Peninsula at the time the shot was taken, the Drive report concluded that it likely “wasn't anything more exciting than a helicopter flying in a straight line in the wee hours of a quiet Sunday morning on the picturesque Puget Sound.”

    Lens flair? How stupid do they think we are? You can see the missile (or whatever) at the top of the streak. It would have been better for them to say "we don't know." It was still dark. What light source caused the flair? You need a light source for a lens flair. Now, the real question:

    Was it a SLBM?
    Nuclear or not?
    Was it defensive -- being shot at something else incoming?
    Was it a SAM?

    Scary. Read Q in the long thread in ALT. Read carefully.

    Personally, I believe this was a SAM launched toward either Kim's plane or AF1.

    CAll me nuts if you want. But I'm at least smarter than to say it was a lens flare.

    Even though it looks like something at the top I would expect to see a lot more at ground level. Plus the fact there is no information on where this supposedly launched from.

    Look at the pic again (above). The date and time are posted on the pic as well as the location. We all know where it was from.

    I would think a missile would be a lot further along in 20 seconds than that thing is...

    Maybe it wasn't a missile. What would you think it could be? There's a white stick at the top with flame coming out the bottom rising into the sky in a straight line. What is it?

    Why did Q say, "As the World Turns" "Red October"?

    Probably

    just some person built themselves a rocket in their backyard and launched themselves into Orbit...

    Or that space ship from the future checking in, not seeing much going on and heading back into space....

    That submarine they "lost" off the South American coast, was it missile capable?

    When Q said that the picture should be reversed I thought that he was implying that there was already a pic of this sub and that he intentionally reversed the pic so that it could be undeniably identified when the other (reversed) picture was located. The Argentina sub was the first that came to mind... Wasn't it Argentina that lost the sub? Can we find it? Can we find a pic of it? I have a hunch this is the connection -- stolen by the deep state.

    You're correct. We don't have the exact longitude/latitude. We do know, however, that it was in the purview of the Skunk weather cam. All we need to do is locate the purvuew of that camera and we will narrow down the location in puget. I do believe there is a website that shows ship movement. We could then locate the submarines in the purview area and locate the exact sub and its location at the time indicated on the camera.

    So, yes, we CAN know exactly if we wish to do the research.

    ARA San Juan.

    The US military said that it imploded into dust and that it would never be found. It seems that after that statement there has been no further real efforts to recover it. Now isn't that interesting. Here's a short article about what happened.


    https://www.straitstimes.com/world/a...r-explosion-us

    BUENOS AIRES (BERNAMA) - An investigation by the US naval office into the disappearance of Argentinian submarine ARA San Juan has revealed that the vessel imploded and sank at a speed of between 10 and 13 knots, killing all 44 crew immediately.

    "The acoustic signal that originated... on Nov 15, 2017 was caused by the collapse (implosion) of the pressure inside the ARA San Juan at a depth of 388 metres, the energy that the collapse released was equivalent to the explosion of 5,669 kilograms of TNT (explosives)," the report reads.

    The submarine disappeared from radars on Nov 15 and, according to the US Office of Naval Intelligence, the acoustic signal that was detected that same day came from the vessel.

    One explanation is a flight incoming from Alaska about that time.
    Looks like a missile to me though.

    An incoming flight would not be completely vertical. I haven't heard of any crashes. At 90 degrees with the ground it would have crashed.

    Q has been warning about D5 for a month. Put that in a Google search and see what you get.

    One of the pics at the link shows the object, fairly well defined.

    Without knowing the resolution of this camera, everything is a WAG, but...

    I would think it was fairly close for that image.

    ...and that would be the same conclusion to “the reverse image” posted in ALT... See my post there in the M-L thread of Leska’s.

    You can locate the camera, recreate the view measured against the far shore, and draw a line. The thing was launched from somewhere on that line.

    You can get history of ship movements, I'll grant. I'll guess you aren't going to find a log of sub movements. It's not like tracking the ferries with transponders to make it easy.

    I live on the Kitsap peninsula and heard this fly over. Struck me because it was low flying and taking a flight path from North to south that no commercial flights take especially at that time.

    Earliest flight over my area is a 4:20 am flight to Asia East to west. This "sounded" like a low flying commercial jet.

    If we're talking conspiracy theories here then I suggest the missile is headed to the Antarctic to hit one of those secret Nazi/UFO bases. /tinfoil hat

    You're only assuming it's vertical.
    A plane approaching the camera at high altitude would look the same.
    It's just a aircraft with landing lights on and a contrail illuminated by the sun.

    Let's Talk About That Mysterious 'Rocket Launch Over Whidbey Island' Photo



    Social media has been buzzing about a bizarre photo captured by Skunkbayweather.com, a local weather website that also runs a number of webcams located near Hanesville, Washington. The site's cameras look across the Puget Sound at Whidbey Island from Skunk Bay and one of them takes time-lapses of the undeniably picturesque setting. Just before 4am on Sunday, June 10th, that camera caught what at first glance looks like the impossible—a rocket launch that seems to be emanating from or near Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.

    The photo looks downright impressive as the streak of light appears from behind low, broken cloud cover and rises towards the heavens. Adding to the picture's intrigue, what looks awfully similar to a large rocket can be seen at the end of the light trail in an extreme crop of the image. But how is that even remotely possible? The Naval Air Station, which I have been all over on numerous occasions, has no rocket operations of any kind. Furthermore, there aren't any launch facilities in the region that could even begin to explain this photo. The closest thing to something like that would be the Ohio class nuclear ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) based not too far away at Bangor Trident Base/Naval Submarine Base Bangor, but those apocalyptic machines don't launch missiles in the Puget Sound even for testing.

    We contacted the owner of Skunkbayweather.com and they were very forthcoming with information and were happy to answer detailed questions regarding the photo as part of our investigation. They sent us the link to the entire timelapse which you can watch here, and went over the specific angle and field of view that the camera catches, as well as the camera type and its settings:

    "It is a Canon T3 Rebel set up as a webcam. Images are captured about every 40-45 seconds. 3.5/20 second exposure/ 1600iso. I only run it on clear nights or when there could be severe weather."

    The positioning of the camera is roughly shown in the chart below, which is from Skunkbayweather.com, discusses the webcams functions and positions. The site's owner told The War Zone:

    "This was actually taken with "Cam4", which is a little wider angle than Cam2 and pointing in the same direction."



    Skunkbayweather.com

    There were absolutely no indications that the owner of the site was trying to scam anyone or perpetuating a hoax. They seemed just as puzzled as anyone as to the picture's origins and are seeking a good explanation for it.

    With this information in hand, we reached out the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island to see if there were any aircraft operations around the time of the photo. Not surprisingly, there weren't. The public affairs officer went to air operations directly to confirm this for us. We then reached out to Seattle Center's public relations representative and they checked into it and said the FAA had no idea what it was and had no anomalies on radar or strange reports that morning that would explain the image.

    I happen to be experienced with complex time-lapse photography. It's worth noting that this type of photography can result in the appearance of distorted time and space in multiple ways. You are looking at a two-dimensional image of a complex 3D event, under unique lighting and environmental circumstances. What looks like a rocket being traced by its own exhaust plume as it rises into the heaves can actually be an object on a flat or even a descending profile coming towards you, or even an object moving away. Long distances traced by light can appear short and vice-versa, depending on the depth of the light being traced. The fact that the exposure lasts seconds, not fractions of a second, can also complicate making an accurate initial interpretation, but that information can also be beneficial when trying to decipher a mysterious image like this one.

    One of the reasons we inquired for specific details about any air operations at NAS Whidbey Island at the time, including low approach or terminal operations of transient aircraft, is that we thought the image could be a fighter taking off from NASWI in afterburner and executing a high-performance climb. These dramatic maneuvers are common at some fast jet bases. But in this case, the early morning timing made such an explanation a long shot, as well as the lack of complaints that would have resulted in such a thunderous racket at 4am local time.

    Next, we pulled up Flightradar24's tracking of aircraft in the vicinity of Skunk Bay around the time the photo was shot. You can see a video of those movements below. Note that time is UTC, not local.

    (Radar loop at link)

    The Alaska Airlines jet (ASA94) descending from the northwest would have been out of the frame of the camera, although at first, it looked like a possible explanation as either the aircraft's lights or its contrail could have possibly caused the illusion. Then we noticed an air ambulance helicopter—an EC-135T2+ registered as N952AL belonging to Air Methods—flying right in the vicinity of the Skunk Bay when the image in question was captured.


    You will notice that there is an error with the tracking of the low flying helicopter that makes it freeze on the screen momentarily and Flightradar24 even notes this automatically. Then the chopper seems to dash across the channel at unbelievable high speed. This is an anomaly with the tracking, and in reality, the helicopter made its way across the channel at normal speed (around 115 knots at 2,000 feet) right around the time the photo was snapped and exactly where the streak is shown.

    With this revelation in mind, the explanation of what you are seeing in the image is the helicopter moving away from the camera towards NAS Whidbey Island, just as it was tracked in the moments after the photo was taken. There is about a minute and a half time difference between the flight data and the time index on the photo. It's likely one of the clocks was slightly off in reference to the data being displayed and we know the helicopter speed data is not fully accurate due to the tracking anomaly anyway.
    Airlift Northwest Facebook Page

    N952AL, just like N954AL shown here, flies under the Airlift Northwest banner, moving patients around the Pacific Northwest.



    When the image is interpreted in that fashion, you can see how the aircraft began being traced by the long exposure starting near the camera and moving away. As a result, it was also much closer to the camera, lower in altitude, and covered far less distance in the short 20-second exposure than a rocket blasting into the heavens far off in the distance would. At 115 knots the helicopter would have covered roughly 3,900 feet. The cloud it disappeared into would also be far closer to the camera when interpreting the image in this way. And all this actually works remarkably well just by shifting the notion of what you should be seeing in the image.

    The thing that looks like a rocket at atop a flame would have been a 'ghost image' of the part of the helicopter that was exposed from spill-over from its running lights and the low available light in the environment. This can look nothing like the actual object as the long exposure and how the light plays on the object can result in strange and often elongated shapes—in this case, something like a ghostly image of a rocket.

    So there you have it, sadly this wasn't anything more exciting than a helicopter flying in a straight line in the wee hours of a quiet Sunday morning on the picturesque Puget Sound. Above all else, this photo serves as another reminder that sometimes there is much more to an image than what immediately meets the eye.

    Update: 7:30pm PST—

    OK, so, it's a helicopter flying straight up and furthermore, that helicopter has illegally shut off both it's red and green lights that are required by law. That's so strange. I've never heard of that.

    The mysterious object is moving away. OK. And how high was it at the end of the series? Helo flying away, it would seem, would appear to be going lower in perspective. Color me doubtful.

    Again, you're assuming it's going straight up.
    Read what was posted above:

    What looks like a rocket being traced by its own exhaust plume as it rises into the heaves can actually be an object on a flat or even a descending profile coming towards you, or even an object moving away.

    Long distances traced by light can appear short and vice-versa, depending on the depth of the light being traced. The fact that the exposure lasts seconds, not fractions of a second, can also complicate making an accurate initial interpretation, but that information can also be beneficial when trying to decipher a mysterious image like this one.

    Lost in the glare of the white lights due to the long exposure time.

    A blinking strobe would appear as a series of dots in a timed exposure, but only if they were bright enough to register at all.

    The image you're seeing is badly distorted.

    I saw a lightning bolt this afternoon that was straight and almost true vertical.
    Possibly a "socially retarded" redneck rebel!

    Looking at the larger pic the exhaust trail appears to go through the clouds.



    Conjecture, but could it be a SM-3 missile from an Aegis destroyer?



    Possible unannounced missile test?
