I thought it looked like the military patrol cutter that is seen docked in Iwaki on occasion.  A private boat would need permission to enter the bay but maybe some fisherman out for a hot catch.  Congrats on your new kittens, one of our neighborhood cats just dropped a litter of three a month or so ago and then left them on our patio.  Adorable at that age, they love playing with string.  Hope we don't get overrun with anymore.

10-10 pm TBS three more sparks.  

10-10 191125 tbs spark
10-10 191353 tbs spark
10-10 191742 tbs spark

I looked up: 軍事ボートカッター (military boat cutter) and didn't see anything that seems to match. JP mil vessels have a broad red stripe angled top to bottom behind the bow. Their coast guard has a light blue emblem (see below). Thanks on the kittens. I'll keep one and hopefully give away two. In a month Ariel is getting fixed and the little will also, later. I didn't want her to have babies, but Soc Sec hasn't stopped taking out medicare, yet & I couldn't afford the bill. Get this, last time I spoke with soc sec they said that apparently medicare and soc sec were "going back and forth" as to whether to grant my appeal to stop taking money for medicare. Freaks. They also told me that the 60 day rule for them to respond to me doesn't apply for out of country recipients, but, they couldn't tell me what time frame does apply. Argh. So lame. But, the kitties are lovely and I'm sure will bring happiness as time goes on. Great screenshots, as usual. I agree it may be accurate to say that the removal of R1's roof has increased activity. Makes sense as the netc.com readings have risen during this period.

Good close-ups of the type vessels that would be used to patrol that area and do the radiation sampling that is required.  Didn't know they had insignia, something to look for that I hadn't noticed at Iwaki or the port but the boats look similar.  The activity at the site has picked up with each panel removal just like when the roof came off.  Just like then, downwinders are getting dosed; rising NETC readings might be the diluted dust in the air coming down at lower altitudes.  Watched this morning as the r1 crane used the same tool it used to remove panels to move things under the screen view.  Keeping an eye on that because there are the eight bottom panels left and I can only see the four in the front on the screen.  

The three 10-10 TBS sparks posted above was a nice example of a small spark cluster.  From 19:00 and looking for 20 minutes we find 3 sparks clustered together in a six minute window.  Looked at the same timeframe on cam1 and found three sparks in a ten minute window markedly close in time to the TBS spark cluster.  

The TBS spark times:
10-10 19:11:25 tbs spark
10-10 19:13:53 tbs spark
10-10 19:17:42 tbs spark

The Cam1 spark times:
10-10 19:08:29 spark
10-10 19:13:20 spark
10-10 19:18:08 spark

Good catch - Excellent on you, Horse. Thank You again for being able to spend so much time watching for us. Looks like there may be a person standing on the side of the boat, (perhaps with a recording device). Looks like a private vessel... no apparent markings and there does not appear to be an array of communications systems on the top which is normally seen on "official" or military vessels.

Might be a WHOI vessel, or a contracted vessel for WHOI. Otherwise, I would think that security patrols would be all over it.

I got the same impression of a person standing on the side of the boat, taking pictures.  It might be a TEPCO boat or a military boat 'loaned' to TEPCO that doesn't need insignia.  With their very own bay to cover TEPCO probably has a couple boats.

Being just a little sarcastic; WHOI has already declared no Fuku radiation problems, so why would they be zipping around the port now?

Yeppers, I agree. And, I think this longterm event is rife with data control.

The lies flow to create a narrative to protect powerful interests and it's easy when the only people that can measure the damage are doing the damage control.  We are not all dead yet, but the ocean is dying and then more of us will too.

!! Yeah, good sarcastic point... mebbe taking pics of specific progress to support their fakery... mebbe they're photoshopping as we ponder... and yes, could be a loaner to TEPCO. Wonder if they were wearing dosimeters...

Possibly collecting samples they missed the first time around.  Wonder if these guys were wearing their dosimeters, they were out for two hours, between 10:00 and noon.

10-11 10:00 Workers on csfp, the small black crane makes three drops on the csfp and workers take delivery.

Observing steady blink above the corner of new Unit 4 building.
   

Also watching a lot of sparking on the Unit 1 view.  

Noted Times:
2016-10-13 jst
3:52   orange
3:53  double aqua
3:55:xx  one to left followed almost immediately by one in the middle

Seems like about one per minute again.  Rolleyes

Additionally spotted a mostly red sometimes blue light between Unit1 1 and Unit 2.  It moved slowly from left to right.
(not a spark)

The cam1 grab looks like a boat, saw it earlier when it was moving across the top of the r3 pit.  At night, the port side of a vessel or aircraft is indicated with a red navigation light and the opposite side with a green one.  Port is the left-hand side of a vessel, facing forward.  Starboard is the right-hand side.  A slow moving red light in the port on cam1 would be heading away from shore out to sea.  

The cam4 grab of the blinking light has caught my attention when I looked for sparks.  I took a grab on 10-10.  It’s not a spark but I can’t guess what it might be other than maybe a bad pixel in the camera.  Maybe it's part of a parked crane reflecting light that could be mostly hidden behind r4.  Good catch Chasaha.  

With the ever increasing beta in the drain to port, now would be a good time for WHOI to check again how dilute it gets at sea because Abe lied about the contaminated port water never getting out to the ocean.  Runoff was last month's excuse.  The tank farm has recently reported having some thousand gallon leaks.  The radionuclide makes all the difference to the kind of damage it can do; yet radio-cesium, the easiest to measure, is the radionuclide we usually hear about.  Strontium and tritium must be there; and the uranium buckeyballs floating around; but who's looking?  Before the nuclear age, background radiation didn't have the radionuclides we added by splitting the uranium atom and we don't even know what background radiation did consist of because we didn't have the measuring equipment until after we had already added more. The biggest lie they tell is 'no health risk from man-made radiation' because it is only a small part of the background radiation.  The damage to life from atomic bomb testing; uranium mining and refining; NPP production and meltdowns; is not publicized and the public is always told it's safe.

I have seen the red light between U1 and U2 before.  

The blinky light at the corner of U4 looked really odd on the high speed replay.

A circular aura went around it.  I watched until sunup and it just disappeared.   I could see nothing that might be a source or reflect point.   I thought it might be a star at first but it didn't move.
Undecided

I reviewed the U1 cam  for the sparks I had noted prior, but again, the high speed does not show all. Not even a blip.


I did spot and capture a good 'white' spark.  Very squarish though.

Hi Chasaha, forgot to mention above that the starboard nav light on boats can also be blue besides the normal green.  The blinky light on corner of r4 has me baffled, I watched it early evening and it was bright and steady - why I thought it might be some equipment reflection.  Having problems with the recorders getting long pauses and skipping seconds tonight.  Just reset everything last night to boot in windows updates and missed a couple hours during some internet provider maintenance.  I noticed a few bright sparks tonight, lots of white ones it seemed, one was very bright.

I was reviewing the high speed archive looking for a daytime spark I saw this morning 2016-10-15 6:18 jst.   It sparked in line with the center tower.  The high speed review did not show it.  That's the case more often than not.

As the video was running I noticed a bright something at the upper corner of Unit 4 while watching on the Unit 1 cam view.

Starts at about  25 seconds in on the recording.

Yeah, that is super weird. Coincides with sunrise. Light refractions in a space where gaseous emissions are collecting? The pattern is interesting - perhaps it represents spaces between parts of the cranes or metal framing posts of the freshly exposed parts of Unit 1 where sunlight moves through (solid parts of the crane where light stops creating the checkerboard pattern)... great display of colors.
