WEBCAM June 2018
#1
Post webcam observations for June here.  Observations should start with a date and ‘jst’ time (Japan Standard Time) and camera(s).  Describe as best as possible what you see.  Contribute data such as weather conditions, work activities, TEPCO or local news reports, radiation readings, earthquake activity, or any information that documents events occurring at Daiichi.  Comments and analysis welcome.  Help keep an eye on TEPCO's disaster site.

Starting the month of June with a moon transit on cam1.  I thought it looked pretty cool now that we can see the reflection off the sea since they nudged that camera.  It was postcard pretty until a spark reminded me that it's still a radioactive disaster area and no longer a safe clean energy source.

06-02 This light on the r1 vent tower kept blinking all night.  Faked me out watching for sparks but I saw a few on cam1.  

   

06-03 Thick dense uniform fog rolled in and stayed thru the day.  Nothing to see but grey.  

06-04 Fog in the morning cleared up by noon.  I saw a couple tools on r1's remote crane.

06-04 19:50 I noticed the red light on the sea side of r2. It was on for a for a bit and when I glanced up again at 20:26 I noticed fog starting on both cams. It started out as that banded fog on cam4 looking like the picture of tritium fog. As the fog spread on cam1, I noticed a couple sparks. 20:44 fog has spread out and shows grey out on both cams. Now it looks like a normal fog but when it got started it looked like it was coming from r2. I'll try and get some pics up later.

Fog has cleared by 21:43. Red light by r2 still on.

Red light out. Fog built back in mostly in the south, cam4. 22:55 cam1 looks like it billows up out of the south end of r2.

The fog billowed about but seemed the most dense over r2 and r3.  I caught a faint cam4 spark to start off with.  It isn't a full spark count, counting in shifting grey fog is tiring.  They'd blink and I'd grab 'em as I skipped thru the recordings.  I know fog is normal on a coast but Fuku seems to make some dense and unusual fogging along with blinking sparks and camera distortions.

Screenshot #4 sure looks like emissions direct from the reactor.

06-06  All the reactors and pool sources at Fuku contribute radionuclides in the air above the plant to promote fog.  I think the common spent fuel pool is usually the main culprit.  Just watching the last couple days as the fog forms this looks like r2 or r3 is suspect.  Stirring up r3 sfp or is it the hole they opened in r2?  My guess would be opening up r2.  There was a lot more sparks and distortions than I was expecting, that's why it took so long to go thru the recordings.  It may be natural fog but it comes over the plant and becomes radioactive fog.  Fog is difficult to capture in screenshots so here's a cam4 spark pair, very rare.

06-13 The last few days, I didn't have much new to report.  The fogging diminished and there was some remote crane work around r1.  On cam4 a crane moves the orange pulley part back and forth but I don't catch any view of the load.  I was watching an orange light, probably a boat drift between r1 and r2 on cam1 when I noticed another orange light in the upper left hand corner.  It was in the same area of the sky as the moon transits; was it a planetary transit?  It was on screen for just over 10 minutes.  Was it maybe a plane or a drone?  I found a few sparks when I looked in the recording.  There was one, a whitish spark right next to the transiting light.  The other two are green sparks.

I'm going to bet it was the moon. Bo Jacobs caught an incredible sky awash in cesium pink which could have been in evidence yesterday. "Hiroshima tonight" (14 June 2018).

Bright cesium pink sky in Bo's pic.  I've seen a couple pink sunsets on cam1 lately.  My first entry this month was a moon transit.  The moon comes in as a big bright light.  This wasn't the moon.  It followed a slightly steeper path.  It was the wrong time of night for Venus but it might have been Mars or Jupiter.  The light was a steady orange; not flashing red/blue lights like an airplane's navigation lights.  I've caught airplanes before blinking in the sky traveling along the coast.  I can't seem to settle on a likely source for the mystery light. Okay, maybe it was the moon seen thru thick cesium pink clouds.
