12-13 18:00  Cam4 has been down since morning.  Cam1 plays, still recording.  

12-12  Majia noticed a fog out on TBS/JNN.  

http://majiasblog.blogspot.com.au/2015/1...sible.html

The event was showing up on the tepcams, not a fog rolling in from the sea, but a fog coming from inland.  Here's timelapse showing fog building up and clearing while tbs cam was fogged out.

1:45 in fog builds up from the right.

The night before showed the same fogging in the rain/high humidity.

12-11 rain and fog.

about 3:40 in fog comes from the left, from the csfp area just out of view.

2:31 in fog builds from the left.

12-11 16:45 cam1 striped lights on in r1.  16:58 check for spark on c4.  Found several sparks on cam4 while the radioactive fog washed over the camera lens and made big webs. Rain rinses the lens but the radioactive fog splashes a few times and webs come an go.  My guess is the csfp might overheat in the high humidity producing the radioactive fog and the sparking and webs on cam4.

The sfp4 was leaking and the structure could not reliably hold the full load stored there.  A super structure was built over the wreckage and fuel rod assemblies were removed.  Early narratives report sfp4 dry, smoking, burning up.  No video released of the r4 explosion that severely damaged the building.  Big secret what happened to r4.  Here’s a thought, some spent fuel is being removed from sfp4, the theatre was how fast and efficiently TEPCO accomplished this task.  Finding sparks on cam4 tells me some radioactive releases are going on at the south end; r4 and the common spent fuel pool.  The recent events remind me of the sequence of events during the publicized spent fuel removal.  The earlier events produced more smoke because the fuel was hotter. The fuel has been cooling almost five years; dealing with problematic assemblies might be easier.  No one’s looking at r4 because it was such a media success.  

12-14 12:30 Tepcam4 still won’t load for me.  Outage started 12-13 10:58:30.

12-14 22:13 cam4 still down for me. Saw the ship cruise by on tbs-jnn this afternoon. Maybe the camera fried.

Did you catch the small black specs flying out of R1 today around 8:00am JST? At first I thought is was ashes or something then it was getting thicker and it looks like BUGS! They actually look like they are flying upward and out of R1, how can anything alive survive in and around that building? Radioactive tainted insects flying around Japan Sad

Cam4 still down, noticing more sparks around R1 and over R3 on cam1 last two nights plus the filtered fireworks are active behind the R4 horizon. Heavy blue, purple vapor colors mixing around between R2 & R4 ocean side.

Few more sparklers 12,13,14-2015...
Unusual spark, I think it came from R3 but it could of blipped off the ocean side horizon, was very active there.
   
Blue spark on left, blue light glow at R1 roof top edge on right with purple if you can see it
   
Bright white spark over R1
   
Green spark during the day on 12-12-15

Surprise, surprise - tepco removed the bugs and deleted time from the 3 min vid below. Why would it matter and why does tepco not want us to see them? How is it possible they are flying around without being fried? Any ideas? The odd thing is it looked like these bugs were flying OUT of R1, going up and around. No bugs were seen flying near or over R2/3/4 that I could tell..

I recorded the swarming bugs and captured comparison frames using the same time. Hopefully you can see the tiny black specs, attached photo link as well.

Hi Everyone (its Majia)
I'm having trouble figuring out how to post so apologies if I do this incorrectly. Emissions are high today and no precipitation can be seen on the futaba webcam.

Great shots.

Thanks for the 'live' account of what was observed in real time. When I have seen things like a flock of birds obviously fall from the sky and then the footage disappears, then you know somethings up.

I do see what looks like a stream of color vapors that sort of follow the specs.

My thought, based on the screenshot, is that it may be birds rising up from the boat docks shore area. The depth perspective can be very tricky.

I also thought it looked like ashes at first, but based on your description, that's probably not it.

Thanks again,
Chas

p.s. The daylight green spark was excellent. WoW!

12-16 22:00 Cam4 outage started 12-13 10:58:30, has anyone told TEPCO. Maybe someone should post the outage on enenews webcam forum so TEPCO will notice.  Joking aside, is this censorship or equipment failure low on the list to fix?  After upgrading their video feeds to flowplayer; they leave cam4 with an error message showing on their website for days now.  Just when I was starting to notice more sparking on cam4.  Pia was noticing how bright the sparks posted lately were, I think the flowplayer feed shows the bright ones better but drops most of the smaller dim sparks.  With no cam4 recordings to scan, I've been going thru fuku1long recordings fishing for sparks; 2011-2012 had more combos and fancy bright sparks making it possible to get a consistent count for those recordings.  As I collect more data I'll try to find samples to compare a real-time count with the fuku1long time-lapse counts.  Most of the sparking was on cam4 back then.  Cam1 started showing sparks when the r1 roof panels came off.  

Well, cam1 has been showing spark activity lately. Last night the r3 pit had that white smoke filled look for awhile. Tonight it shows pitch black again with steamy emissions over the r3 pit; no white illumination from 'fog' yet.  21:25, 21:27 big spark and a blue one.  

Chasaha, did you see the birds flocking in front of the camera this afternoon, quite a sight, many more than I've seen before.  

Cali, I think you caught some insects, spent some time trying to capture the slight specks they show as, you did better than what I was coming up with.  Good shot of the new tool hanging off the crane.  Thanks for the sparks, you catch nice big bright sparks at dawn.  Noticed the peach panel lights at the base of the cooling tower on at 22:50.  

Majia, glad to see you here, would appreciate your insight into TEPCO's camera feed outage and all the changes being made to limit our ability to document the disaster site.

12-18 19:35 noticed cam4 back online. TBS-JNN still down.

While cam4 was down, one hour on cam1 stood out with the amount and intensity of sparks, so I started counting.  12-16 21:00 to 21:55 found 16 sparks.  They were clustered mostly in the first half hour.  Don't know why the sparking spiked like that.  Here's a nice double.

Hi Horse - nice spark, must be a pretty bad-ass because when I looked for it on FD 3min vid IT WAS GONE. I wonder if tepco is filtering out the color of the sparks, I could be wrong because there are white sparks but the one below looks grey with no hue around it. If you recorded 21.35.44pm did it have color? Just curious, the reason I looked for yours (21.35.36) is because I wanted to enlarge it Smile
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUIqVXF6Vs0 vid of missing spark at the 0:35 mark
21.35.36 spark gone
   
21.35.44 double grey spark
   
Blue/Purple Spark 17.08.22pm on 12-16-15
   
BIG BLUE Spark 12-15-15
   

JNN cam has be up for me today, wonder why yours won't open Dodgy

Hi Majia, great to see you here. Evening emissions are so thick and heavy at night on cam1 and then there is what I call FILTERED FIREWORKS with blue/purple vapors between R1 & R4 have been consistent the last few nights. Cam4 is back up after being down a few days. Seeing more sparks on cam4 as well.

Thank you Chasaha and thanks for enlarging the bug pic J I have some black bird pics to post. Also kudo’s on that red ufo pic you posted earlier, amazing catch.

Horse, I can’t keep up with all the sparks lately! You must be keeping very busy with all the high counts. There are more double sparks and even chips or sparks that are breaking up in pieces (something new?). Majority are coming from R1 that is for sure, and shooting from R3 on cam1. I’m fascinated with color intensity when enlarged on the comparison pics. BTW Pia, the sparks are a bit bigger when I post them because I zoom in about 200% when I take the original picture Blush
12-17-15   17:00.27pm (5:00PM)
   
12-18-15   21.04.57pm
   
12-18-15   22.18.53pm Looks like the color was greyed out Huh
   
Still see the light boat trolling in the back on cam1 and captured it on the JNN cam 12-16-15 at 3:30am.
   

Wanted to mention a subtle anomaly that is impossible to capture in a screen grab.  During webcam watching I’ll see a faint RAY OF LIGHT flash for a split second, like when you see a flashlight in the distance. It comes from R3 and R1 on webcam1. Not sure I’m really seeing it but wanted to mention it anyway.  

In my opinion, the FD plant is insanely more active, R1 roof top exposed with more sparks, R4 extension light room is hot as ever with a new vent showing on the roof which seems to be the source of the additional condensed fog cloud on the left of R4 on cam1. The heavy blue/purple vapors and oily spots popping during the filtered fireworks between R2 and R4 horizon which in my opinion is tepco’s most opportune time to burn debris in the dark of night.
