Hi all, It's 9-20 am and raining hard at Fuku.  No time lapse videos have been posted for awhile but I have recordings of most of that time frame.  Not much to report, getting sparks in the 10 to 13 per hour range but I notice more distortions occurring, found 3 distortions in one hour.  Haven't had the time to scan the whole weekend. Not much crane work going on but I figure the weekend and the rains slowed things down.  So what's happening this weekend at Enenews?  Noticed a different format and people aren't sure if it's an upgrade or a hack.  I hope Enenews and the time lapse videos return to normal soon.

Hi Horse, Pia - looks like it's just an unusual coincidence, enenews decided to update the website with a new and improved layout. It looks good. Guess the Admin wanted to surprise everyone instead of announcing it. The webcam forum is back, hardly any comments as usual, too bad. 

http://enenews.com/

I'm glad you didn't see anything stand out from the missing video time Horse. Thank you for taking the time and effort to record the webcams, that's a huge undertaking.

Hi Califnative, glad to hear it was only admin hacking the Enenews site.  Much going on lately and its easy to get worried when stuff disappears or changes.  The recordings give me some peace of mind but I need you all to watch and report, cause I can't keep up with it on my own.  Even the rain Fuku has been getting is a concern with flooding or subsidence.  I follow Pia's posts at https://twitter.com/Cecalli_Helper and I notice that Tepco reports ever increasing Beta in the drains.  It bothers me that so little is being done to stop the radioactive contamination still coming from the site.  After five years of Fuku, the oceans are showing how destructive to life a nuclear power plant accident can be; whales wash ashore; sea lions starving; fishermen going out of business.  The nuclear fuel melts Tepco misplaced will keep creating more radiation that boondoggles like the ice wall aren't going to stop.  Many of us survived the initial release but many had their lives shortened because of radiation damage to hearts and glands and bone.  I worry that Tepco is going to drag their feet for three hundred years while we watch the climate change and the oceans die and wonder why cancer keeps increasing.  The cranes are hovering over r3 again this morning.  Tepco is doing what they can afford to do; too little, too late.  Mankind must utilize better means of power production and quit using energy sources that are so destructive or we’ll end up like the dinosaurs.

Horse: it's really awful that TEPCO was granted permission to drain into the ocean and that their stupid filtration systems mostly fail. Not that they removed enough of the different nuclides, anyway. Fukushima is a huge crime against the oceans and humanity, yet there are no "authorities" taking responsible steps to mitigate the damages or to protect wildlife, fisheries, and people from the dangers of bio-accumulation and bio-magnification. There's plenty of shame to go around for all involved, from IAEA, WHO, Secretary General on down to NRC, NRA and, of course, TEPCO and their corrupt allies.

The future is bleak. Thank you for following my tweets. You've probably seen my mini-rant today for TEPCO's drain 3x report (19 & 20 Sept). But, it's here, for others:

Looks like the ENENews transformation is nearly complete. Webcam forum is back.

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)

http://www.tepco.co.jp/en/nu/f1-np/camera/index-e.html definitely looks like heavy emissions at Unit 4

How bizarre - when I click on these links from here, they get url not found. When I copy paste them, they work. Is Cafe Rad Lab being blocked, or?

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.

When we could access METI (before their data became inaccessible), there was a correlation between work on the roof and increased radiation in the local community and then across the US. I haven't checked METI's or MEXT's data site since sometime ago, will go see if it's still inaccessible.

Just created new thread in the radiation detection forum: http://caferadlab.com/thread-1039-post-2321.html has archived and current data for Japan and major cities around the world. Not sure how trustable, though, considering some monitoring posts were built with lead foundations & sources, etc..
