Noted that the ccd was modified, removing protective coverings that could block alpha. Many of the daughter products of americium emit gamma-rays and neutrons which have a long penetration depth.  Both vids show in normal time, a multitude of sparks blinking on the screen.  When I recorded the ISS 'gamma storms' what looked to be a multitude of sparks in normal time turned out to be a series of instantaneous sparking events seen frame by frame.  The tepcams have all their protective covers filtering alpha yet we still see instantaneous individual sparks blinking.  

3. The distortion looks like a hit to the electronics, gamma seems likely.  

4 and 5.  I think I see some patterns; like more over the r3 pit or the r1 open roof; sparking in the clear sky in front of a rising cloud of emissions.  It looks random in the spark collections.  Maybe our view is more zoomed than the early days and events aren’t as active to get that perspective.   Started looking thru archives for sparks, prefer normal speed recordings but can work with the 2x like fuku1long, and posted some here to look for patterns.  

6. When I see an increase in sparks there is an increase in emissions, the radioactive stew in the air thickens.  The pink splotch floating in front of the camera, what type of vapor was that.  A yellow cloud rises over r1 on both cams at the same time.  The radioactive fallout in the rain sticks to the lens for awhile to blur the view with webs.  All are vague signs of the radioactivity in the air over the disaster site.  Might be hard to prove sparks are exploding on cam or in air but we can collect data and make our guesses.

Good job horse.   

I usually try to start with Fuku1long if no normal speed exists.   Even there though, the video is not always posted or is shortened.  

I have not been as active on watching this year.  But I do look at what other watchers are observing and try to comment based on my prior observations.  

Arrow Collecting data.   Someday this may be very important historical information.   I think it already is.

Thanks Chasaha. Your prior observations are important because they keep changing the cam views and new watchers won't be see what we were seeing. Your comments and links help the discussion, keep 'em coming.

12-26 pm spark count update

20:00:00 to 20:59:59 one hour, counted 17 sparks and 2 distortions.

21:00:00 to 21:59:59 one hour, counted 12 sparks and 2 distortions.

22:00:00 to 22:59:59 one hour, counted 11 sparks and 1 distortion.

23:00:00 to 23:59:59 one hour, counted 21 sparks and 1 distortion.

Chasaha asked if sparks had been seen in both cams at once and the spark activity on cam4 was an opportunity to check it out since sparks don’t usually show on cam4 and 12-28 had a few.  Looked for sparks on cam1 while cam4 was so active and cam1 was active too.  The events were clustered in the same time frame, even if not exact.

Cluster Sparking.    That really is phenomenal.    I am not sure what to make of it.  

Just the fact that the sparks have been 'captured' so close in 'area' and 'time' is telling us something.  Undecided

I don't believe those links are to live videos. When I click on one I see a Play button, which means the picture is not live. When I click on Play nothing happens. I used to be able to watch on several different platforms, but this has become increasingly difficult.

@chargedbarticle, those links are on TEPCO’s website to TEPCO’s north and south camera live feeds.  TEPCO has turned off all the old direct links we used previously and delivers the feeds only thru their Flowplayer.  I know it to work with Windows 7 and up IE browsers.  If it won’t play for you, try allowing it in your firewall settings.  As to the live part, when you hit play the feed re-buffers and starts playing at the ‘current’ jst time displayed in the title bar of the feed.

@Chasaha, yes, sparks blink in clusters.  I had looked once before briefly at a c4 spark and didn’t find anything on c1, this time I looked a bit longer because there were a few c4 sparks, not just one.   It surprised me, especially the timing; sparking, a gap, then the next burst.  The timing gets lost in the series of screenshot’s in the spark collections; the graphs were a lot of extra work and didn’t seem to convey the bursts of spark activity very well.  The clustering shows in the 12-26 spark counts, too.  Something is causing those sparks and I think we have cameras acting as radiation detectors.

2015 spark count summary  

   

   

Started a spreadsheet to track where I was in spark counting.  Really fell behind in projects because documenting sparks is tedious and time consuming.  I've counted more of July, more to do, to compare spark counts to known rad reading spikes.  7-8 shows some higher counts and takes twice as long to count and document.  Will flowplayer change spark counts?  Was it introduced to control video output to conceal increasing activity?  I thought the 11-8 orange clouds seen on both tepcams coming out of r1 was a significant event and wondered if any radiation monitors would spike when that cloud went over.
