17 Background Radiation in St Louis Misting Rain Saturday, February 4, 2012
[excerpted] "At 5:30pm we took a sample swipe from our truck and it returned a reading of 17 times greater than background radiation. The reading is significantly less than the 30-50X background measurement we had late yesterday evening; however, the reading is still somewhat high for a jetstream blowing out of the South West..."
Majia here: I wish I had a camera with me to record the very disturbing sunset in tonight's Phoenix sky.
I have never seen anything like it. The atmospherics appeared "oily" and there was a strange yellow-dominant rainbow in the sky that looked more like the colors one sees in an oil stain. It looked "wrong."
Plus, there was a strange looking "cloud" that looked like dark gray tangled filaments from a torn blanket hanging vertically in the sky... smoke like...
There were many persistent airplane contrails.
I watch sunsets routinely because they are so beautiful here, despite (or even because of sometimes) our terrible valley air. Tonight's sunset was not natural looking. I hope someone took some pics and posts...
I did find someone who had filmed a similar sunset in Tucson last year without the oily colors that were in the sky tonight
