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:
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:
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.
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...
