Started the topic, Flying objects over Daiichi, will add more as I find them.  http://caferadlab.com/thread-263.html

11-18 Caught some raindrops and webs on cam1.  Watched some crane activity in the peach panel area while it was lit for a few hours around midnight.  Caught a few sparks.  Dark now at 02:30.

TEPCO just dropped something into R1

Based on that one picture could just be dosimetry equipment being placed over the building to measure levels.

11-18 21:50 Heavy rain on both cams all day into night, blurred views. Cam1 shows those striped lights in the lower half of r1.

11-18 The striped lights were on all night in r1.  They varied in intensity at times.  Counted two hours and averaged 15 sparks an hour.  

   

11-19 Watched this crane rig over r1 from 8am to 11am, looked like it might be spraying something into various spots inside r1 for three hours.  

   

Then the other rig comes out at noon and hangs over r1 for twenty minutes and leaves.  

   

11-19 pm  No striped lights in r1 tonight.

Fukushima Dairy has identified the new tool being used in r1.  Thanks Iori Mochizuki, appreciate the work you do presenting pertinent info from TEPCO.  I visit your site almost every day because I have trouble navigating the maze of TEPCO’s site for information.  

Quote:According to Tepco, they started removing the minor debris from Reactor 1 building by using a special type of a vacuum (See photos attached below).  The vacuum is hung by a crane. It removed the small pieces of concrete from 8:16 to 12:26 of 11/19/2015.

That was a big shop-vac; it stayed high up, the top visible while it mostly swung back and forth near the east wall.  The crane moved it once to the north wall where it dipped it in a bit deeper.  Glad to know what it’s doing.  I did wonder why it stayed so high up and close to the east wall, was afraid they might bump it or was having some problem with it.  Glad they have better camera views than we get.  They didn’t identify the second tool.  It’s a very dangerous work site with difficult tasks to accomplish and quakes or accidents could make things worse.  The only reason I watched into the morning was to see how the striped lights in r1 went out and they faded out as dawn lit the view; they didn’t flick off like a work light.

Makes sense, thanks for the update

Amazing! 15 per hour

That's one colorful spark.

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.  

really GREAT idea !

Theory: Idea
I think these 'spark' observations may be like a giant Jacob's Ladder due to gases, moisture, and ionization factors.

Thanks Chasaha, to add to your theory; due to gases, moisture, and ionization factors the Daiichi plant radioactive steam releases may be acting as a radioactive cathode.  

Quote:“The purpose of the radioactive source is to ionize the fill gas so that the application of a high voltage across the tube results in an instantaneous current.”
http://www.orau.org/ptp/collection/consu...ntubes.htm

From this we might expect more severe lightening or plasma in arc mode as discharge between the upper atmosphere and earth ground.  I’ve wondered if some of the light effects, mostly the glows, might be due to cathode sputtering.  
http://www.ajaint.com/what-is-sputtering.html

Quote:“Also, in some very uncommon cases, radioactive materials can give off charged particles traveling at very high velocities. These particles can interact with the immediate environment, to create a glow.
This environment can include the oxygen, nitrogen and water molecules in the air immediately around them, or water in nuclear storage tanks, or water molecules that the radioactive materials absorb.”
http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2...249925.htm

To see plasma in glow mode or arc mode requires voltage; charge separation, a difference in potential.   I would say that we need a power source to explain the sparks as a Jacob’s ladder effect of an electrical spark jumping an air gap.  

15 sparks an hour, maybe from something in the r1 tent.  July was seeing 30 sparks an hour and fogging events when tepco stirred up the r3 sfp.  In the earlier recordings at normal speed of events in 2011 that were archived here, I could easily count two per minute which would be 120 an hour.  The sparks seem to indicate radiologic events.  I have found other examples of radiation affecting ccd cameras with the same sort of spark display.  Proving radiation effects on ccd cameras may be difficult if it hasn’t been researched much or if the information is not in the public domain.

Maybe there is rain or mist here ... but this looks .... very 'active' ....

Agree, looked very active to me, too. Radioactive steam sticks to the lens in the misty rain. Nice big webs at the bottom of the screen.  What if the haze rolling over the r4 extension is the source.  I have noticed in the misty rain that a regular venting from the north side of the r4 extension becomes visible.  That r3 pit area is also a source of radioactive steam.  When the csfp steams up, cam4 gets the webs but not as much of the haze curling over the r4 extension; it also sparks more on cam4. The haze rolling over the r4 extension looks to me like a different phenomena than the dancing webs of radioactive drops sticking to the lens.  The radioactive steam rises from the disaster site all the time and we only get a glimpse in the misty rain.

JNN cam is back! Shaking a lot, I suppose it is windy.
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/tbs-live-camera

Tokyo time: 8:48 AM --- they have the biggest 'thing' hanging from a crane. It is as wide as the lower strut on the mega-crane. No idea what it is.

Here's is screen grab ----

still moving a lot of stuff around ... dropping one down getting another large thing.
I have 2 more screen grabs (this is not the same object) .. they drop it down and fetch another load ....

Interesting side story about the cranes.

When I was in Chernobyl I met a crane operator who was doing the repairs to the portions of the turbine building roof that collapsed in 2013. Interestingly enough, he had also worked at Fukushima Daiichi after the accident. That's gotta be some pretty great resume material for him.
