WTH!?! This Happened Just Before the Earthquake! What Is Going on Here?

Friday, September 8, 2017 17:34
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



Moments before the 8.4 Earthquake hit the southern shores, a massive anomaly was spotted in Mexico City Sep 7th 2017. While hurricane Irma, Jose and Katia are intensifying. Could this be the cause?

Also, check out the strange green lights that flashed over Mexico before, during and after the quake!

    People have reported earthquake lights for a long time.

    Like pre internet, really long time.

    I’m sure it is a phenomenon related to or similar to St. Elmos Fire, not really the same thing, but a close type.

    You can rub a balloon on your head and generate electricity in the form of static.

    Rub tectonic plates bigger than continents together and you might get a weird effect from that too, a lot of energy is involved after all.

    I hate referring to Wikipedia, but I’m lazy, and it gives a decent summary of explanations people have theorized:

    Some models suggest the generation of EQLs involve the ionization of oxygen to oxygen anions by breaking of peroxy bonds in some types of rocks (dolomite, rhyolite, etc.) by the high stress before and during an earthquake[20]. After the ionisation, the ions travel up through the cracks in the rocks. Once they reach the atmosphere these ions can ionise pockets of air, forming plasma that emits light.[21] Lab experiments have validated that some rocks do ionise the oxygen in them when subjected to high stress levels. Research suggests that the angle of the fault is related to the likelihood of earthquake light generation, with subvertical (nearly vertical) faults in rifting environments having the most incidences of earthquake lights.[22]

    One hypothesis involves intense electric fields created piezoelectrically by tectonic movements of rocks containing quartz.[23]

    Another possible explanation is local disruption of the Earth’s magnetic field and/or ionosphere in the region of tectonic stress, resulting in the observed glow effects either from ionospheric radiative recombination at lower altitudes and greater atmospheric pressure or as aurora. However, the effect is clearly not pronounced or notably observed at all earthquake events and is yet to be directly experimentally verified.[24]

    During the American Physical Society’s 2014 March meeting, research was provided that gave a possible explanation for the reason why bright lights sometimes appear during an earthquake. The research stated that when two layers of the same material rub against each other, voltage is generated. The researcher, Professor Troy Shinbrot of Rutgers University, conducted lab experiments with different types of grains to mimic the crust of the earth and emulated the occurrence of earthquakes. “When the grains split open, they measured a positive voltage spike, and when the split closed, a negative spike.” The crack allows the voltage to discharge into the air which then electrifies the air and creates a bright electrical light when it does so. According to the research provided, they have produced these voltage spikes every single time with every material tested. While the reason for such an occurrence was not provided, Professor Troy Shinbrot referenced the light to a phenomenon called triboluminescence. Researchers hope that by getting to the bottom of this phenomenon, it will provide more information that will allow seismologists to better predict earthquakes.[25][26][27]


    SO yeah, like St. Elmos Fire, footage is becoming more common thanks to everyone in the world carrying an HD camera in their pocket, so now more people are accepting it as a real thing.

      Tectonic weapon – Wikipedia
      A tectonic weapon is a hypothetical device or system
      which could create earthquakes, volcanoes, or similar events :wink:

      Later in life Tesla claimed one version of the oscillator caused an earthquake

    In the first video it looks like a Klingon Death Orb. Must report this to the Federation. :lol:

    • Rockledge

      Hope I’m not screwed. I never bothered to learn Klingon and sneered a bit at those who did.

      Damn, wouldn’t that be a hoot, in the end it is the pencil protector dungeons and dragons/star treck nerds who survive the big one.


    Many satellites orbit the earth with high power laser weapons. It is possible these are used for weather modification. Also, scalar
    wave forms can directly affect weather. Scalar wave form energy weapons are now common military weapons. Satellites also have
    scalar weapons. The question is, why and who would want to modify the weather? You already know the answer. Thanks BIN

      satellites are fake :wink: Geostorm (2017)
