Hi Pia - the url is the same link for the two webcams http://www.tepco.co.jp/en/nu/f1-np/camera/index2-e.html. Not sure what else you're asking for other than this. This very well could be a cloud as Horse mentioned and perhaps I over reacted, as usual! The pics above are screen shots from the video I took which I can't post here because I don't have Vimeo. You can see it better in the video which I'll send to Horse and you. 

Here is the green spark I caught earlier when it was still dark below the buildings and then I saw the black cloud between 6:12:27 to 6:13:53 am. Sunrise was 6:27am in Futaba, closest town to Fukushima.

Thanks, I thought it was probably the TEPCO cams, but, of course, those can't be rewound. When I looked at the screenshots, I thought the only thing I saw in the region you noted was that cloud. Pretty sure it was a cloud. Thank you for the follow up!

Horse Lots of special effects in this one.  01:37 min.

Hi Horse, Calif, Pia and all.
Please Horse, what's your view on those purple moving spots?
As for the thingy, first thought it was some rolled paper photo unrolling in front of our eyes.
So what is weirdly passing by? Any idea anyone?
Thanks for everything as always

The transport video really took me by surprise when I saw it live.    It reminded me of the pink splotch video a couple years ago.  Then the vehicle came thru and now I wonder if it was lights from below the camera glaring on the lens or some radiation effect as the vehicle passed near the camera.

Felibi - So what is weirdly passing by?

Horse - I saw welded together metal plates in the front, looked curved as it passed. The walk-ways attached at the back made it look to me like a large cylindrical metal tank. The roadway under cam4's location has been busy with cranes moving various large parts but that's the first time I've seen anything like that pass by.

I'm going to cautiously side with Horse regarding reflecting lights captured on the cam. These observations raise some interesting questions about "why those intense colors." It'd be awesome if we could recruit Ian Goddard to the Web Cam Observations threads to help us better understand what the physics are that drive the events witnessed.

Pia, consider, if it was just work lights in the roadway reflecting on the lens it should be seen more often than once every two years.  Perhaps it happens more often but nobody's there to see.  The color is another thing that doesn't look like a solid red or solid blue vehicle light.  The lights compared somewhat with the webs but without the raindrops on the lens.  There looked to be diesel exhaust in the air too.  There's a lot of tanks on site, new and old.  We didn't see new one's being delivered by this route, was this an old tank heading out to the dock?  Hard to come up with suppositions from just the two observations.

Agreed - many variables and yes it wasn't like the usual patter[n] on the cam. Diesel exhaust sounds a likely "carrier" of colorful matter.

11-26 20:17 Just watched another big tank pass in front of cam4.  Just like in the recent transport video above.  Will have to take a look at it later.  I was only watching because I stayed up to post some pictures from yesterday morning. 20:42 saw the lights again, maybe another transit. 

11-25 am here's tepco moving a large red rectangular box onto r3.  It looks like it goes down close to the walkway across r3.  You might see the white specks of workers in various positions along the walkway.  The red part of the crane moved in front of the red box and parked; makes it difficult to notice the new addition.

11-27 am another red box goes atop r3.  

   
   
   


11-27 later that morning I watched the new large crane in front of cam4 move a blue box.

11-28 20:12 I watched another tank pass in front of cam4 tonight.  It’s becoming a regular evening event lately.  This would be number four that I’ve seen.  Here’s pics of the last two nights.

11-27 201758 c4 transport
   
   

I uploaded a video of the 11-26 transport; three minutes.  Not as many lights at the start but several at the end.  The tank comes thru about half way in.   A half hour later, at 20:41, I saw lights again, but no tank.  It must have been the transport returning for a refill.  I’m leaning toward the lights being reflected vehicle lights.  I’ve been watching for sparks on cam4 but haven’t caught any lately.  Leaves the question of what are the tanks for and where are they going?

11-28 The fourth sighting of the tank transport and a double spark that caught my eye.  The sparks aren't blinking as much lately, at least that I've noticed, not much to count.  Covering over the R3 pile with new construction seems to have contained some of the radiation but I still find small bursts.

11-29 Big equipment being moved around, today's catch is green.  Caught another tank transport in the evening; they seem to run on a schedule now.  Twenty minutes later, more lights but no tank.

11-30 am cam1 showed a new piece being added to the north edge of the top of Unit 2.  Workers on the roof are very small and probably won’t show very well in still pics, even in motion they were barely noticeable.  I looked on cam4 for a tank transit but didn't find one.  Found a few sparks on cam1, another double.
