Observed some bright large 'reflective' flashes from on top of Unit 5 in the distance.  I've seen little flashes from that area, before but none this active.

Hi Chasaha, It was my understanding that Units 5 and 6 were not visible in the tepcams because they were up hill, further west of the line of Units 1-4.  Don't know what building that may be however.  Califnative pointed out on the previous page the long green addition just to the left behind the vent tower.  Lots of flashes in that area last month.  Definitely new construction going on.

Chasaha, I found a couple sparks in the r1 opening back on 9-16 that I thought you might want to add to the collection.  Surprised that I haven’t found more sparks in the grid work of r1 but I’ve only done a couple spark scans lately.  Will keep looking for them.  The first one looks like it’s in the same area that Califnative pointed out as a red hot spot on the previous page.  http://caferadlab.com/thread-994-post-2262.html#pid2262

I have always thought the large white building in the distance, with the circle on it, was Unit 5 with 6 right behind it.

 - The flashing flashes looked like a 'giant' aluminum tarp waving in the wind.

- Opening the grid work one Unit 1 may produce some behind the grid sparks, if  they are aerial.

- Seems like a lot of purplish emissions on the Unit 1 cam right now.   (23:13 jst)

We should start a thread for the maps and camera angles for reference.  Maps I've seen show a slight offset between the line of reactors 1-4 and reactors 5-6.  Spent over an hour going thru Cryptome pics and found one that shows what I'm trying to describe.  Reactors 5 and 6 should have the same paint job as reactor 2.

Pia, Chasaha - I often get the same webcam message "Not Found The requested URL" these days too but refreshing one or two times seems to work. Could be a Tepco deterrent to discourage people from looking. After you open it, remember to right click the screen, open settings and deny Tepco from allowing to view your computer. I finally learned to view the webcams "incognito" using Google. 

I'm glad you brought up the R5/R6 activity Chasaha because after viewing Horse recent picture, it proves the greenish building off to the left behind the tree line on cam4 is indeed the top of R5! I always thought it was out of view on cam4 also. My theory about green gas making the building change color sounds silly now.  Blush Looks like the reflective light activity is happening around those white buildings across from R5/R6. 

I measured the distance from CSFP (across from R5) to R6 using Wikimapia.   
http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37.425321&lon=141.037245&z=16&m=b
It's suppose to be 0.651 miles (One mile is 5280)
   
Here is that early picture taken 7-18-16. 
   

Not a bad idea to gather map information Horse, I know we've talk about this topic before. 

Enenews looks better, updated my avatar picture like you suggested Horse and it worked.

9-24 am jst cam1.  Tepco vacuums the dust off the exposed rails of r1 for the work day.  The recent heavy rains have probably helped wash some of the highly radioactive dust out of the air. I wonder if they waited for the rains to yank the r1 tent panels to help keep down the dust.

I haven't seen a consensus about the especially high readings across the US for some time. Do you think it's related to the panel removals?

So few real measurements, no way for me to tell. I read MVB's site looking for clues. The accumulation of radioisotopes in the air will rainout in patches. Fuku has certainly added to that load and is creating more everyday.

I can't help thinking that shaking those panels loose has scattered highly radioactive dust to the wind, spent some time drifting great distances and come down somewhere. There's not enough published data for anyone to be able to declare for sure. I report what I see on the cams and notice when they stir up dust the counters go off.

It's a good question, "the especially high readings across the US for some time. Do you think it's related to the panel removals?"  There should be a better answer than 'we don't know'.  Whoever does know for sure doesn't want the rest of us to know.  

When the r1 roof panels first came off and the dust clouds that contaminated farmer's fields were noticed and acknowledged, we got another 'so sorry' out of tepco for that. The elite don't worry about a little dust that people and workers have to deal with. Gov't agencies declared 911 dust and 311 dust weren't dangerous but many people developed health problems.

Tepco is attempting to decommission melted out reactors at a plant that is too contaminated for workers to spend too much time in.  Dispersing the contamination as fast as they can, what they call dilution, gives everyone a chance to breath in parts of unshielded atomic piles.

Still beaming, several hours later....

Anyone else notice how black the area just above the beam is? 
Shadows or what?

   
...for comparison to the previous screen shot.

I've done it before, thought I saw a burning redish color at night when it turned out to be the red paint from the crane. Helps to view the 3 min tepco vids on YouTube just in case. Object is a part of the cable on the crane. I was wondering if this crane is attached to the smoke stack tower for some reason. It's been sitting there for awhile.

A few recent earthquakes happened in and round Japan. I think the plant is on alert because there are red warning lights at the street check point webcams and a couple of police cars. Another thing I've noticed is this streaking effect, like a glare reflecting off a bright light making three streaks on cam1 along the shoreline. But maybe it's light ray reflecting off the lens from the bright  lights on the ground in front of R1/R2/R3? Haven't seen this before though.

Hi Pia - they could be telephone wires but I don't see a tower connected to the lines. It will be light soon, I'll check again later. Got it on the earthquakes Wink

I think the streaks on cam1 are spider webs reflecting light.  Saw a spider on cam1 a couple nights back and noticed two streaks afterward.

Just to be clear Pia, we have talked about 'webs' as being radioactive steam sticking to the lens long enough to reflect light in the droplets.  Not to be confused with real spider webs draped over the lens causing the faint light streaks.  The security at the intersection that Califnative pointed out might be because of higher rads caused by the r1 panel removal.  The Japan earthquakes are a big concern because I think the shaking and seismic waves might crack the crust on the fuel melts and cause more activity.  After the rains cleared the air, I didn't see much sparking; but I noted last night a couple more than the night before.

9-27 04:00 jst  Here's another one hour spark report.  I found 10 sparks and 3 distortions right before dawn.  The sparking seems to be at what I'd call an idling rate but the 3 distortions in one hour is higher than usual.  I threw in a histogram because of the timing of the distortions every 20-25 minutes.  The timing of the sparks and distortions are so regular.  Added a couple spark pics; a double spark some distance apart but aligned vertically, and a spark and zoom for Chasaha's aerial collection.

I watched another evening of Fuku fog on the tepcams that looked like steam coming from the CSFP.  l hoped it might show in the time lapse videos.  I see that Majia
noticed it too.  The 00:12:22 c4 spark I saw in the time lapse started me looking.  Counted a little over a half hour on both cams from 23:55 to 00:33 when those recordings ended.  I found spark and distortion activity on both cameras.  C1 had 16 sparks, 1 distortion; C4 had 3 sparks, 2 distortions.  That's a strong burst of activity.

Wow Horse, you've been busy! Lot's of different colored sparks captured and it's looks the webcams are starting to blip/distort more often. I think that was one of the reasons they were replaced. Good catch and hard work, thank you. I'm still curious about those light streaks on cam1 (below), I'm not so sure they're from a spider web, it seems there would be more strands. I thought it might be from the brilliant lights underneath the cam1. The plant is really bright now on the JNN cam and noticed they moved the view to the right, showing less of R1. Here is a comparison pic from March when I noticed buildings lit up in the tree line. 

   
   
Also wanted to mention Horse, I actually saw an orange SPARK on the JNN webcam when I was doing this comparison picture (09-28-16 23:30pm). It was half way up between R1/R2. Is that even possible? That must of been a huge spark to be able to see it from the JNN webcam. 

Looks like some flare up you captured on the corner of R1 9-27-16, 04:43:15. I went to look for it on the Fuku 3 min vid and it was filtered out, of course. Great catch. Saw something unusual on that same video. It was filtered out and wondered if you saw it on your original recording if you have time to look. It starts at 05:09:40 where the red X is and floats up to the top of the screen. Slow the speed down to 0.25. I'm curious, is this a spider? If so, why would they bother to filter it out.

Hi Califnative, the faint light streaks are most probably real spider webs, imo.  We’re still seeing bugs walking in front of the lens causing moving black blobs to briefly appear.  You know, it’s not that they filter anything out of the time lapse, so much as the limited sampling done by the time lapse is automatically filtering out fast events.  The TBS/JNN view change is interesting, would think they would follow the r1 panel removals but maybe they think something will happen over r3.  If the radioactive vapors are causing sparks and distortions they could reach as far as the TBS/JNN camera and cause sparks.  Glad you noted seeing a spark on TBS/JNN, now we need a capture.  

9-29 6 am this would be the fifth panel removed.

9-29 060524 r1 panel removal
