Strange Evidence - Images of "Steve" AKA a Birkeland current

Unread postby Michael Mozina » Wed Nov 08, 2017 9:12 pm

I watched episode three of "Strange Evidence" tonight (Chasing Bigfoot) just to catch the images of "Steve", AKA a massive Birkeland current flowing through the Earth's atmosphere that was imaged and discussed in the news awhile back. Most of the show was absurd of course (I fast forwarded through most of it), but the images and movies of the Birkeland current were really cool. The temperatures of the plasma inside the current are measured to be around 10,000 degrees (I assume Fahrenheit) which is consistent with a massive amount of current flow. You can not only see the rotation pattern of the current in the movies, you can occasionally observe green current bands forming around the outside of the main body of the current channel every so often which also follow that same spiral pattern. That part of the episode is well worth watching if you get a chance.

They also showed a few seconds of a similar experiment to the experiment on Youtube that I've cited repeatedly which might even be using the same piece of equipment: It sure looks similar.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m58-CfVrsN4

During the start-up phase of the video several large discharges can be observed on the cathode which look amazingly similar to the discharges that we observe in the solar atmosphere.

I may have to break down and build myself one of those vacuum chamber experiments so that I can play with it. Every time I see images from that experiment I get goose bumps. It's amazing how similar it looks to solar satellite images of the sun including the discharge processes and the full sphere corona. I definitely want one. :)

STEVE Juergens?

The arrival of "...a flowing "river"... " of "...energetic electrons streaming from space thousands of kilometers above Earth." "They (the researchers)found that during STEVE, a flowing "river" of charged particles in Earth's ionosphere collide, creating friction that heats the particles and causes them to emit mauve light. Incandescent light bulbs work in much the same way, where electricity heats a filament of tungsten until it's hot enough to glow."

It is somewhat reminiscent of Ralph Juergens' Electric Sun hypothesis.

Hi,

I think STEVE is discharge from crust. It is not Birkeland current, but I think that the electron coming out from the inside of the earth is the current source.

This is pretty interesting phenomena. Have a look at:

Colors of the Aurora

The color bar shows that pink, magenta, and red colors occur when Oxygen and Nitrogen become excited:

Now have a look at the photo taken aboard ISS for study of this phenomena:

ISS Photo

Its interesting that the pink, red, and magenta are primarily visible at higher altitudes. Now compare that with:

Red sprites, blue jets and elves

If you rotate this aurora spectrum color bar image to the left (red at the top/blue&purple at the bottom) you will have an altitude dependent atmospheric density glow discharge column that corresponds with these activities.

It is interesting that ionization (blue, purple, green) is occurring at lower altitudes whilst only "excitation" occurs at higher altitudes. Why is that? Because the density of air decreases with height - the higher up you go there are less air molecules. Therefore: red sprites, tendrils, blue jets, and elves might be 'markers' denoting at least three or four different collimated regions of Earth's air undergoing "electric breakdown" into the glow discharge regime complete with "arc mode" (the "tendrils").

The only thing missing are the "Black Aurora" which complete the "circuit":

The Cluster data show that the black aurora occurs where there are holes in the ionosphere(*), the part of the upper atmosphere where aurorae are created. Here, the particles that make up the ionosphere are shooting upwards into space inside regions known as positively charged electric potential structures.

This is the opposite process to that which creates visible aurorae, where electrons spiral down from space into the atmosphere within similar, but negatively charged, structures.

"The black aurora isn't actually an aurora at all; it's a lack of auroral activity in a region where electrons are 'sucked' from the ionosphere," explained Professor Göran Marklund of the Alfvén Laboratory in Sweden. - CLUSTER QUARTET PROBES THE SECRETS OF THE BLACK AURORA


Earth-Sun plasma electrodynamic interactions.

You may be interested in the works of the late Michael Csuzdi:
http://breakthroughinenergy.com/index.php?&pageid=1

I don't fully agree with all his ideas but he was definitely on the right lines, I also think his work has applications beyond the Earth and could quite easily be extended to include the Sun and the other planets. I have previously mentioned his work in some of my earlier posts.

Agreed.
If we take a closer look at one of the images in the Cluster article-
http://sci.esa.int/cluster/29111-the-four-cluster-spacecraft-showed-that-black-aurorae-are-a-kind-of-anti-aurora/
We find this quote:
“Measurements by the Cluster spacecraft confirmed that black aurorae, strange electrical phenomenon that generate dark, empty regions adjacent to the Northern and Southern Lights, are a kind of 'anti-aurora'.

“The data showed that black aurorae represent holes in the ionosphere. Here, negatively charged electrons are being accelerated upwards into space inside regions known as positively charged electric potential structures.

“This is the opposite process to that which creates visible aurorae, where electrons spiral down from space into the atmosphere within similar, negatively charged, structures.”

Compare that statement with this statement by Michael Csuzdi: “The sudden production of positive ions in the environment of the magma cathode is a creation of a positive space charge. This results in the increase of the "anode current", or electron flow in the direction away from the cathode. The fast departing free electrons drag along the positive ions as well as neutral water molecules…The electric force is a continuous action over the distance, as opposed to mechanical forces where the action at a distance does not exist.”

The Electric Earth: http://breakthroughinenergy.com/index.php?&pageid=1

Statement from page 23 (in original) of: http://breakthroughinenergy.com/sitefiles/media/PDF%20Documents/SupernovaStormWebFile.pdf

In this instance what Michael Csuzdi attributes to a magma cathode I would attribute to concentric Birkeland Currents (the Earth does function as a cathode which is acquiring more negative charge. If we scale this process up we would eventually arrive at the level of the solar wind). It is only on the inward leg that we see aurorae, on the outward leg we find coronal holes- ‘black aurorae’.The same process leads to Earth’s atmosphere ‘leaking’:

yes, I will read it. I also do electronics.
Thank you,

And there dies "action-at-a-distance". Well said Mr. Michael ( Miklos) Csuzdi, P. Eng. and thank you so much.

So in that ESA summary the ion/electron double-layer "sheathing" along the column of a filament are referred to as negative and positive "Electric Potential Structures". If you look at these from the top they can form a torus of the Radial Electric Field. Meanwhile, elsewhere gamma ray production ("Dark Lightning") and the other Upper Air forms of discharge and charge exchange along these filament columns are given a variety of names.

No wonder for so much confusion. So many places and people looking at different aspects of "atmospheric breakdown regimes" on Earth and/or the Sun. I'll just take them as a "discharge columns"; rather large discharge columns penetrating *through* those respective atmospheres such that the celestial bodies electrodynamically interact amongst one another. That way the investigator can move freely amongst all the various expressions :!:
