WEBCAM April 2017
Looking at the cam4 pictures you can see they look just like the pictures of smoke coming from the csfp a few days ago.

Bonsoir tout le monde. Tough job we've got with Fuk. #RememberDaiichi
In France, if Mélenchon wins the presidential election, nukes will start cutting off with 18 reactors.
Loads of work en perspective. And forever dangerous.
We do have to begin somewhere. Let work for the best. Thank you so much for being here.
Ships on the ocean with red and green lights flashing behind R1/R2 cam1 last night. 
More inside fog spraying in the morning 4-24-17
Big metal piece placed on the side of R4 today around 11:00am.  Just missed it. Lot's of suits walking on R3.
Maybe you can see it in your recording Horse, they snuck it in there pretty quick.

That wasn't a boat light in that first pic, that was a spark.  The boat lights stay on and flicker between red and green.  That green blip was one of a few I found looking for a few minutes.

Looked like a little spark cluster going there, about one a minute.  Noticed your spark had a faint double; look up at the top of your picture directly above the spark.  Haven't noticed sparks on cam 4 for awhile now but haven't had as much time to look.  Good catch on the internal spraying, it seemed to last about six minutes like the other one did.  While they remove parts from r1 they add pieces to r3.  It wasn't in the air long, I grabbed a frontal view and an edge on view as they swung it around.  I saw men walking across the r2 extension and across r3.

Thank Pia, Horse - thanks for the clarification on the spark. I should have known it was since it was short, the other red light near R1 was definitely wondering along the ocean. I was comparing both screens and caught the red one. Thank you for going back and capturing that big piece of metal near R4. 
Pia, found another website (old one) that shows an increase of 146% (I think?) somewhere in Fukushima. Be sure to use Google and translate the page. http://new.atmc.jp/pref.cgi?p=07#d=d
Thank you for keeping an eye on the radiation levels.

Spotted more workers moving quickly on R3's new lead roof/shield.  Some in white suits and some in the dark suits.

Early morning and a lot of work is going on.   These guys can build mega structures faster than our local Taco Bell was constructed.   One day it was an empty field, the next day, tacos. 

The dark suit workers were on the upper part of the structure.   Closer to R2.  Maybe that's why the dark suits?
Huh  I wonder what the hourly pay is to get irradiated? 
Huh  I wonder what the workers are 'actually' told?

Huh  I wonder if this all has anything to do with the lowest birthrate in Japan (2016) since they started keeping records in 1899.

No mention of people being afraid to conceive because of fear from birth defects or even not coming to full term.
Califnative, the picture at 4-23 02:14 was a boat.  I caught a couple sparks but none while they were both blinking.  Here’s a shot of the better spark with the faint boat light between r1 and r2.

4-24  Just happened to catch this cam4 spark.  
04-24 221812 c4 spark
4-25  While I’m getting this post together I caught another c4 spark before I ended the recording and thought that would top of the post nicely but I noticed another one at 21:24 on cam4 to grab when the next recording closes.  The cam4 spark picture also shows the new work light on r3.  
04-25 05808 c4 spark - new light on r3
The spark rate on cam 1 has seemed pretty high; too many to count.  We’ve captured emissions spewing out during the day and evenings putting on some funky Fuku fogging shows.  The neighbors around Dai-Ichi noticed an uptick in radiation readings.  I’m seeing cam 4 sparks again.  Check for another c4 spark at 21:55.  The shows not over; the webcams give evidence of continuing radioactive releases.  Note of thanks to all posting; great contributions documenting Tepco’s nuclear folly.

Chasaha, here’s another girder from r1 headed for dilution into Japanese steel they need to build Olympic stadium and housing.

I did see those blips on cam4.

04-28 Spark report.  I’d been watching about an hour and noted another cam4 spark.  A steady rate of sparking was popping up on cam1.  Scanned the recording and grabbed the c4 spark.  Scanned the cam1 recording for fifteen minutes and I was surprised to see two long duration distortions.  When I watch the monitors my eyes don’t catch the distortions but when I scan the recordings they’re pretty easy to spot and I can back up and step thru frame by frame to see them clearly.

The squirt poison has been spewing into the air all month and the sparks are blinking a quick tempo.  I would not be taking off protective gear yet and I fear that Tepco just wants to create good PR for the refugee return.  The sparks that don't blow away to the US are hanging in the air contaminating the site and the local area.  The nuclear industry is very cavalier in creating and spreading these toxins into the environment claiming always that it's safe; knowing that the damage takes time to manifest; failing to release the full spectrum Alpha, Beta, and Gamma readings so we might know how good or bad it is.

Here's an 11 second video that shows two sparks blinking in rapid succession just after sunset.

"Is that a smudge on the cam lens or is something ugly happening in unit 1? "

It does look like vapor coming up from r1.  The smudge has been there a couple nights now.  It does look funky and I'm still noting lots of sparks.  The vapor doesn't show on cam4 though and vapors from r1 have shown in both cams before.  I'm going with smudge.
