Was very interesting to see the emissions over r1 show up in both tepcams.  Grabbed 8 sparks, 5 of them in 25 minutes.  Then it flared up again.

wow... I immediately think "yellow cake" upon seeing that color... but, I know, work lights... but... it is still a very curious emission evidencing....

matter in air refracts in humidity and is visible when lit ..... I've written poems depicting this truth. So, the question is - what matter is emitting from the reactors....

Hi Folks - humidity and rain causing what looked like heavy steam/emissions over R3/R4 during the night 11-10-15. I watched the lights reflect off the lens causing arching and light flashes. There has always been some controversy if the arching and clouding are actual or light reflections from the water on the lens. I imagine it's both.

Was watching cam1 this morning and caught a red light flash from the shoreline between R1 & R2, then saw a white flash light sail back and forth on the left side behind R1 for a couple of hours on this 3min vid. JNN cam was off line at the time, imagine they didn't want the boat to be seen on the ocean. Wonder what tepco is doing out there on the ocean this time of night.

Majia's Blog mentions flashing lights being some kind of warning system, makes sense:

New Flashing Lights at Fukushima Daiichi?

"I have no idea whether the new flashing lights are indicative of changing conditions at the plant. I do believe they are on the cranes and I've noted in the past that flashing lights often coincide with reported problems at the plant and/or emission events".

Chasaha, Rain seems to bring out some interesting events.  Watching these smaller events is revealing a bit more than when a large amount of smoke just greys out the whole view.  I speculate that the rain must dilute the boron mixtures that tepco uses to moderate criticalities in the pools and/or melts.  The rain would also dump fallout, radioactive particulate, into the mix.  Radioactive steam rises into the air but with the humidity it hangs over the area until temperature or wind can carry it away.  The yellowish haze stayed close to ground level and posed a bit for the screen captures.  The time lapse might show the timing I noticed; an increase in spark activity then a little steaming, steaming decreases and the sparks start flying until steam erupts again.  The radioactive steam, fuku fog, rising over r1 on 11-8/9 made small webs on cam1 when they clung to the lens.  On 11-9/10, the cloud had concentrated at a higher elevation, saw lots of sparks on cam1.  In your grab, cam4 showed the fuku fog rising over the r3 pit and curling over the r4 extension in the usual pattern we've seen so often.  The fuku fog curling over the r4 extension would not be visible in the cam1 view because of the camera angles.  Webs did form later on the cam4 lens at the bottom of the screen but they didn't last long.  Sparks, fog, and webs diminished and skies cleared.  The sequence of events happens repeatedly.  I think there is fuku fog hanging over the r4 extension that reflects the equipment lights and when it reaches the camera it sticks to the lens forming the webs.  Glad you posted the pics and thanks for bringing up those controversial webs, I've been too busy with work and getting new equipment configured to post as much as I wanted to about that event.

NOTEWORTHY: Fukushima Daiichi Utube videos STOPPED RECORDING the usual 3 minutes on cam1 & cam4 since yesterday at 13:00pm 11-11-15. Now only showing 3 - 15 SECONDS.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC34BJEX...6YBksIYY6Q

Unusual event, peach colored panels hiding something in front of R3 back opening on cam1.

2 distant explosions? Small burst of light on ocean behind R4 horizon at the 0:43 mark on 11-12-15. Maximum zoom is 200%, reduce speed to 0.25 under settings.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1AN9W55v9Q
2015.11.12_19.01-21.00.Unit1side

burst of light on ocean 19.44.35pm (7:44PM)
   
2nd explosion 19.46.17pm
   

Later around 2.52am 11-13-15 a boat with flashing red, blue lights sailed towards R2. The FD 3min utube video only shows the color WHITE so as not to alarm I believe, clock skipped seconds where time was deleted.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PP1zQ2fOWGM boat appears 2:46 mark

My normal time record shows the red and blue colors tepco omitted, manipulating videos is common practice for TEPCO.
red light 2.52.10am
   
blue light 2.55am
   

So what was TEPCO doing out at sea when the Utube 3min videos stopped recording? Where these blue and red lights warning signals of some kind after the distant bursts of light? The sky lights up, do they look like explosions to you? I am not trying to cause alarm and yet it is alarming. The webcam watchers have dwindled, good time for tepco to take advantage of no one watching their tricks of the trade.

Cali, You had me curious about the missing time, what happened after midnight was a lot of crane movement and plenty of sparking.  For a couple hours it looked like they were loading or unloading a boat/barge with all the seaside crane activity and the activity in the ‘panel’ area.  Found a new blinking light at the base of the tower associated with activity in that panel area when it lights up and shuts off.  The panel area movement pics were a crane shadow playing over the lit panels.  You've posted good samples already of most of the lights.

The light flashes only lasted two frames, just like the sparks do now on the flowplayer recordings.  Captured 16 of those light flashes, the one you posted was about the best, looked perfectly round at normal speed.

Hi Horse - yes, I saw a lot of sparks that evening too. Kudos to you for counting them! This webcam tracking and posting is very time consuming, when I saw that burst of light it reminded me of the mushroom event back in January 2015. There was some question as to whether it was a water drop lens reflection but I've never seen wavy lines like that since then. This distant light burst has to be seen on the video for better detail and yes, it looks round - I'm convinced it's an explosion because the background sky slightly lights up, a light flash is usually a black background. In any case, I'm frustrated knowing tepco is getting away with this and wanted it to be noted. Also posted on enenews but I feel like an outcast there now.

Did you say you saw 16 distant light flashes? I only saw two from the video I posted. Did you take a screen shot? None of your pics show up in your message. Thanks for looking at the video Horse and sharing your thoughts about it.

Here is that mushroom from 1-27-15 at 2:55am.
   

After posting the peach panels, your right, there was an active crane working at the bottom of R2 so the panels where flood lights reflecting off the walls I believe. Probably working on this:
http://fukushima-diary.com/2015/11/72000...reactor-2/

There is a lot of crane activity over the Spent Fuel Pool, they were pulling out the usual bright orange/red objects that I captured in real time; when you review the video on FD Utube the colors are dimed and muted. Flowplayer really downplays the distance, clarity and color on all the videos now. This was the day (11-12-15 2:00pm) they were only recording a few seconds but I was watching at the time. This is why it's so important for more webcam watchers, as you know.
   
   
   

I'm also seeing another area of activity that hasn't been mentioned, will post this soon.

Very different from the 1-27 raindrop.  A second raindrop a few minutes later on the edge of the screen is usually not mentioned.  Here's the video of the first and second drop.  The second drop was not as dramatic as the first.

http://vid87.photobucket.com/albums/k146...opdpde.mp4

Here's stills of both 1-27 raindrops.  

   

   


Califnative, You're much appreciated here.  Great job posting pics and comment.  Each entry in the list is a pic, but hard to pick what to post.  Got 11-12 pm uploaded to HorseCam/library/11-12-2015

The flashes were mostly very faint and guessing the distance impossible.  The explosion of light has a pronounced circular glow around it.  Those were not raindrops reflecting light and they were not equipment lights.  They each lasted two frames in the recording.  It was a nice catch Cali.

Hi Fukushima, Welcome to the Rad Lab.  I'm not on Facebook and didn't know about the Facebook Fukushima Reactor Live Cam Watch, will check it out.  Glad to see links to Troy Livingston's work, his videos are well made and informative.    Thanks  for posting.  

Looks like enenews is down for everyone.  Must be doing Saturday maintenance again.

11-15 pm Clear skies, haven't noticed any sparks on cam1.  Busy week, r1 smoking and sparking in the rain.  Then the late night overtime crane activity in the peach panel pit and on the dockside of the reactors.  Cam1 showed those interesting light flashes over the r3 pit that Califnative found.  Looks quiet tonight, but then noticed sparks on cam4.  Found seven sparks in a one hour sample.  Don't often see that many sparks on cam4.  Here's two of the brightest.  

   

   

Notice the white spark shows a halo over it.  Is the flowplayer putting that halo on bright lights?

"A powerful earthquake has reportedly struck off the southwestern coast of Japan, near Satsuma.
The Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) has reportedly issued a tsunami advisory following the 7.0 quake.
"Get out of the water and leave the coast immediately," the JMA said in a statement. "As the strong current will continue, do not get in the sea or approach coast until the advisory is cleared."
Witnesses described moderate to strong shaking throughout southern Japan, though there is no information about damage or casualties at this time.

... The US Geological Survey measured the quake as a magnitude 7.1, and located its epicenter 99 miles west-southwest of Makurazaki, at a depth of 6.2 miles."

Horse - hate to admit it but that thing had to have been a raindrop, the wavy lines really made it questionable at the time. It rained 11-14 and the lens was full of raindrops, you can see where the top part is reflecting the dark background of the plant.    

Thanks for the appreciation Horse, my feelings are Fuku should be closely watched more than ever, the Flowplayer manipulating techniques, reported high rad readings, leaks, heavy night time emissions, etc. And when the FD 3 min vids get posted on YouTube, it's even harder to spot events because view is reduced.

I think the thick emissions add a surrounding glow sometimes.

Weird things happened during the day 11-15-15. It rained on 11-14, the next day the clouds were bizzare looking so I recorded and caught tepco webcam manipulator deleting 2 minutes during cloud anomalies (13.45 to 13.47 look at the top clock and bottom right corner recorded clock with no interruption) then captured what I believe is a UFO around 13:51pm.  
(poor clarity when you have to reduce the size here)

Captured 5 frames (5 seconds), here is the first and last. You be the judge. I'm calling it a UFO whether it makes people uncomfortable or not, I'm used to see them now. Glad I can speak freely here without being ridiculed or mocked like I got from someone on enenews who doesn't believe in them. This isn't the first time unidentified objects have been seen at Fukushima Plant.

1. So why did tepco delete 2 minutes worth of video?
2. How could they delete time while I was recording in supposedly real time? Doesn't that prove it was pre-recorded?
3. I checked YouTube FD 3min videos but 13 hours are missing, it's quite tricky how they did it with the time stamp and date. What happened during the daytime that they wouldn't record for 13 hours?

Yet more examples of TEPCO manipulations and cover up. So conniving and corrupt Angry

Cali, your last two captures, I can't find in my recordings.  I find what looks like bugs flying around and at least one bird flying in the view that time of day.  Stepped thru 13:51 frame by frame, just can't find that object in the last pic, it's not in what I've got recorded.  The problem with trying to get real proof to identify any flying object is the crappy cams and no control of them.  I think I've got captures that show a very fast craft flying over the plant, but not enough detail to prove what it was.  Flowplayer has made it worse with even less detail.  Then there's the time anomalies in the new flowplayer, more hesitations and speedups than in the old direct feeds.  Media players were more reliable than the browser feeds.  I have a recording of 11-14 all day even if the time lapse is missing, but haven't looked at it.  

Gathering and presenting evidence, networking, getting various viewpoints and positive feedback makes learning more fun.  There was a lot of noise in the enenews webcam forum, too much at times, it made it harder to find the gems or follow thru with specific topics.  My thought would be to start a topic, 'flying objects over Daiichi', to put the different pics we capture of the birds, insects, drones, blimps, planes, and other unidentified objects if you want to track them and help people identify them.
