This one is a stunner, and it was shared by S.D.  In fact, when you see the picture accompanying the article, you might wonder the same thing as S.D. did, and outlined in the email with the article.  Indeed, today's high octane speculation is really S.D.'s high octane speculation; I'm just passing it along because, if it's true, it's a whopper doozie of a stunner.

Here's the story:

Surprise: they capture the moment a meteor falls on an active volcano

Note that this story is two weeks old.

Needless to say, the picture is worth more words than the article itself.

And that's my problem. Most regular readers here, like me, are probably skeptical about pictures, especially pictures, films, videos, and so on, that are trotted forward every now and then as "proof positive" of something spectacular, like the existence of ET's or what have you.

So accordingly, my method here as always is simply to assume there's nothing funky about this picture, that it has not been photo-shopped, and that what it shows is genuine. Indeed, I have a number of suspicions that the picture might be photoshopped, simply because the green line of the "meteor" shown in the picture looks more like a laser than a meteor. But again, let's assume it isn't. If it isn't, then what are we looking at?

This is where it gets interesting. It is possible that we are looking at a meteor from a very unusual angle, i.e., nearly dead on and in line with its track, and hence the very steep declination of its track. Most meteor tracks are usually seen from the side, and hence do not show this sharp declination. It's the sharpness of the declination, plus the sharpness of its track, that made S.D. question whether it was a meteor at all, again assuming the picture represents something genuine.

But what if, asks S.D., it wasn't a meteor at all, but a "rod of God" technology? Here is where the article gets interesting:

A meteor appears to have fallen on top of Merapi volcano in this stunning photo taken by Indonesian photographer Gunarto Song.Instagram / gunarto_song

The professional Indonesian photographer also captured the flash of the shocking meteor Gunarto Song, Who was able to take some amazing photos of the phenomenon, which can be seen as a bright green streak It appears to be embedded in the upper crater of the volcano.

READ  A rapist and serial killer was strangled in his California cell

Will a meteor fall on top of the volcano? Merapi? He asked the aforementioned photographer on his Instagram account, whose comment was accompanied by three pictures of the car on its spin-off landing after the volcano.

Song is a fan of Merapi volcano and has been stationed in the vicinity of this mountain for four months, from February to May. On a Thursday night, he was taking pictures of the full moon, which gave him excellent visibility.

Suddenly I saw a very bright light Fall from top to bottom within one second. Very bright and fast, “said the photographer as per the slogan Local Media Kumparan.



In purely astronomical terms, and contrary to what the images suggest, there has been no record of meteorite collision in the area. Geophysical Station Monitor First degree Solomon And the Erin Konkahiani. He told the aforementioned Indonesian media that in monitoring the area no vibrations were recorded related to the alleged meteorite.

It's that last paragraph that is the fly in the ointment of the "rod of God" theory, for surely such a device would register seismically, unless of course, it did, and they're keeping it quiet. So we're left with either a photoshopped picture or "something happened and they're keeping it quiet." Now in spite of the fact that I'm skeptical, let's pursue the high octane speculation of a "rod of God" impact near the mouth of an active volcano. If that is the case, then it means several things, all of them quite disturbing: (1) someone has a "rod of God" technology, (2) they've already deployed it and (3) are using it in an apparent attempt to either shut down, or trigger volcanic eruptions (one of the two, and of the two, my money would be on the latter).

Oddly, in 2017, General James Mattis hinted of the existence of such weapons in a "slip of the tongue" (which could have been and in my opinion was deliberate):

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis hinted at using a kinetic weapon on Tuesday while discussing tensions with North Korea when he made a Freudian slip.

Mattis was asked whether there was “any military option the US can take with North Korea that would not put Seoul at grave risk,” Mattis responded, “Yes, there are, but I will not go into details.”

Later during the press conference, another reporter questioned Mattis and caught him off-guard:

“Just to clarify, you said that there were possible military options that would not create a grave risk to Seoul,” a reporter asked. “Are we talking kinetic options as well?”

“Yes, I don’t want to go into that,” Mattis responded.

What Mattis was referring to was this system, outlined later in the article:

However, the U.S. also has other kinetic weapons in its arsenal that would allow Trump to “totally destroy North Korea” — one of weapons system is the “Rods from God.”

What is the Rods from God? The “Rods from God” is a part of the directed energy weapon family; it’s a kinetic energy weapon.

(See https://gizadeathstar.com/2020/01/north-korea-iran-and-general-mattis-odd-statement/)

And Mattis was not just speaking off the cuff; there's this:


A "weaponized meteor strike..." Hmmm... fancy that.

So, you can mark me down in the skeptical column, but I'm not entirely dismissive of the possibility that, per S.D.'s high octane speculation, we might be looking at just such a "meteor strike".

See you on the flip side...

    Looks to me as if those “meteors” go up as well as down! Must be those “special” kind of meteors:

    Kinetic energy weapons and directed energy weapons are two entirely different things.

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper formally acknowledged the existence of space-based ditrcted energy weapons in the final months of Trump’s first term. This clearly means that it’s not at all crazy to suggest someone has been targeting volcanos with energy weapons from space.

    Also reported by the Daily Mail in the UK.
    They state that it’s likely that the strange green light over the Merapi volcano stems from two meteor showers, the Eta Aqarid meteor shower and the Arietid meteor shower, that happened during the time, according to Indonesian National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN).

    Joseph, I already posted a few weeks ago on your pages about the strange shaking and wobbling skyscraper in Shenzhen, China that was not due to an earthquake or seismic activity.
    Interesting that the HQ of Shenzhen Electronics Group who make superconductor microchips is located there.
    Draw your own conclusions!

    Given the wonderful excuses for leaders we have I put nothing beyond them we can be damn sure if they have the technology to deliberately ignite a volcano they will surely use it. Fukushima anyone my thought is the writing on the wall and our elites are desperate and if they going to go they will go out with a bang. Or this the way to cover for their plan for mass culling of what they refer to as useless eaters AN ACT OF GOD.

    what would a seismologist say about activating a caldera? here is a theory on calderas at rest.
    “A recent study of the historic activity at calderas from around the world showed that
    “caldera unrest occurred at least 79 times in close temporal association with regional
    earthquakes or, in a few instances, with swarms of regional earthquakes. By close temporal
    association we mean within a time span that is short in relation to the usual recurrence
    intervals of both the regional earthquakes and the unrest, usually within a few months or less.”
    “Fifty regional earthquakes (most M 6 and above) were followed within hours to months of
    unrest at nearby calderas… Twenty seven of these episodes culminated in eruptions, and three
    others are continuing without eruptions as yet (Rabaul, Wrangell, and Yellowstone).” Rabaul
    caldera in Papua New Guinea erupted in 1994.
    The authors also found that “at least 27 regional earthquakes occurred within 100
    kilometers of a restless caldera during or shortly after caldera unrest” and concluded “that
    magma bodies beneath young calderas often react to changes in regional tectonic strain, and
    that unrest at calderas is sometimes a general, long-range precursor to regional earthquakes.”
    Newhall, Christopher, G., and Dzurisin, Daniel, 1988, Historic Unrest at Large Calderas of
    the World: U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1855, vol 1, p. 19-20.

      Been watching active ‘swarm’ quakes taking place in a number of areas across the globe. It’s actually hard to do with all the other incidental stuff getting airtime over the weeks, months, and years. Even the ridiculous. Sure glad one does not have to store it all. Surprised there hasn’t been “the big one,” yet. Where the seismic activity has been (and is, like in Iceland and Salton Sea and a few others opposite) the graphics of several monitoring programs are certainly colorful.

    [Man 1] Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird
    [Woman1] It’s a plane.
    [Man2] It’s Superman!

    In today’s fake world, it’s getting much more trickier
    to distinguish fact/reality from fiction/illusion.

    One of my favorite writers, Edgar Alan Poe, loved writing
    in the penny presses of his day, elaborate literary hoaxes.
    In his eyes, life was one big hoax anyway.

    It’s one thing; however, for The Enquirer to fake it.
    But when governments use it against the people;
    their heretofore trust[if there was one] – is irrevocably broken.
    And even a Superman propaganda series – can’t redeem it.
    [No matter where you look.]

    To today’s post[about a hoax?].

    Got to say, that green-lit strike looks awfully weaponized.
    [but, w/everything being faked, is that picture photoshopped?
    From here on out, it’s narrative spin after narrative spin.
    [who is writing what and why?]

    Then there’s the truth.
    Which, just maybe, what’s being shown.
    [But then, the meteor itself may have been weaponized.]

    At the rod of god hypothesis; and I’ve got to tell you, I’ve often thought about this weapon being used on the super volcano at Yellowstone.
    [Are “they” running a proof of concept op w/in a op?]

    Whatever the case;
    I think these “god-like weapons are certainly in the wrong hands.
    Hands that use them where ever there’s profit and/o power to be had.
    Even, against their own?
    [dare I say: even, against their own blood?]

    Mattis’ remarks were definitely deliberately staged. Reporters only do what they are told and the notion of one coming up with this question independently and asking it is preposterous. They are far too ignorant and idiotic and utterly controlled. In fact, disease carrying vermin are more praiseworthy, interesting and ethically sound–as well as less pestilential–than any mainstream, so-called “journalist.” Dreadful people. As for the photograph, it does look quite a bit like a green laser. My Father has something similar with which he now and again bamboozles the local populace. Thus, it is likely a simple fake. The issue of detonating volcanoes–including supercalderas or other potentially massively destructive ones such as Santorini–with space-based or seismic weaponry is incredibly plausible and quite likely in a Mutually Assured Destruction scenario. Strangely, such end-gaming scenarios may increasingly represent the best option to the teaming hordes of “inessential people” and “Useless Eaters” slated for medical experimentation, organ and blood harvesting, and ultimately, extermination. But I digress….

      >Mattis’ remarks were definitely deliberately staged.<
      Yes, they are vermin, and even if one of them has enough on the ball to ask a penetrating question, they won't do it because it might damage their career prospects. Most of them really want to be in movies or TV, and failing that, game show hosts.

      • FiatLux on June 16, 2021 at 8:59 pm

        Aren’t they already game show hosts??

    Since El Salvador recently anounced it will use volcanoes to power bitcoin mining… was this event some kind of “warning” by someone?

  15. enki-nike on June 16, 2021 at 8:36 am

    The beam seems to come out of the cloud, or the source of the beam seems to be hidden by the cloud. The cloud is not very high above the peak of the volcano. The photograph seems to good to be real.

  16. Roger on June 16, 2021 at 8:30 am

    I’ve seem meteors burn up that color. Green likely comes from iron, nickel content. But it obviously did not hit the volcano in my opinion but instead disappeared over the horizon behind the volcano. Because of its angle and trajectory it just looked like it flew into the volcano when most likely it just flew over it.

    • OrigensChild on June 16, 2021 at 10:44 am

      I considered these options and would keep them in the frame. With the dearth of data available to us at the moment we all are offering mere speculation. I saw this story as an opportunity to lay out potential scenarios that may or may not be seen in the near future under different circumstances. If this Cold War goes hot these systems may see their debut in combat.

      • Roger on June 16, 2021 at 2:02 pm

        I suspect Rod of God weapons may have been responsible for some of those questionable Siberian close calls that blew out windows. Timing with the rhetoric at the time was suspicious. Just hope China doesn’t hit Yellowstone with one.

  17. OrigensChild on June 16, 2021 at 8:12 am

    Is someone playing laser tag with volcanos? As crazy as it sounds volcano calderas may be the perfect target for fine tuning optical weaponry at low power to determine whether one’s algorithms are accurate. One of the reasons why I am going here is the signature. This looks like the same signature of an optical weapon system that purportedly brought down the AT&T building in Nashville, TN back in late December, 2020. That was purported captured on security film, and it too showed a flash using a very similar signature. From what I saw it on that film it was clearly a directed energy weapon burst. Based on the photos I saw, if real, the heat and damage in the area was too extensive for a truck bomb–but perfect for a plasma discharge from a column of air super-heated to temperatures that are greater than those in the red spectrum. The footage was in black and white and grainy, but the color of the flash (beam) was very much in the white zone, meaning it too was superheated. Most commentators eliminated the kinetic weapon solution because there was minimal crater damage–but massive heat and scorching effects. At low power one could determine the damage from high altitude optical platforms. Calderas would be good at hiding these effects because, after all, that is what volcanos do. Now, having offered this as an hypothesis, it assumes both pieces of photographic evidence is genuine. We do not know the provenance of either, which means this whole exercise is speculative at best, but reasoned speculation based on suspected weapons development trends. If this is true, who was responsible for the testing? And, why? Was it a demonstration to a client? Or, is there a new player? Of course, China would be in the frame. Why not Japan? Why not India? Within the demonstration there might be a warning to another regional power signaling, mess with us and we can hit back with some toys of our own.

    popping corn single-handed.

  19. Foglamp on June 16, 2021 at 6:08 am

    It certainly does not look like a meteor to me; but I’m no connoisseur. If there was no seismic signature, then it was probably not a rod of god (why would Indonesia want to keep that a secret?). To me, it looks like a beam of directed energy of some sort. If we see more of these, it could be the start of the alien invasion.
    Or the picture could be a complete fake. If it’s not a fake, it’s definitely a fluke 🙂

  20. DanaThomas on June 16, 2021 at 5:35 am

    Over the years there have been rumours – especially in Central America where volcanoes abound – that there are “ET” interventions to prevent, temper or may cause volcanic eruptions. For all we know this could be literally true, a metaphor pointing to someone or something else, or both, depending on the individual incidents. And what if there were a way to draw energy from craters, like filling up your tank?

    • Richard on June 16, 2021 at 6:14 pm

      The stories of the Ancients don’t stop there, either. Even the placement of the Moon has drawn unusual scrutiny over the years and centuries. Mars’ position has a place in the stone carvings, but what, that’s still a matter of analysis, too.
