Naval Research: Airglow, Aurora, and Other Lights in the Sky

Image of HAARP

In the Copper River Valley, near a small town called Gakona in eastern Alaska, scientists are studying the airglow and aurora, and even creating their own. Although not as colorful as the natural aurora that often paint the skies over Alaska, the artificial airglow is proving very useful in understanding how the Sun's radiation affects the Earth's atmosphere and what that means for us.

Researchers at the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) are using powerful radio antennae to study and even mimic what the Sun's energy does to the atmosphere. One reason understanding the atmosphere is important is to keep track of how it might change over time. We rely on the atmosphere for the air we breathe as well as protection from the Sun's powerful energy, so it's something we'd like to keep around. Different levels of the atmosphere are also very useful for communication, so studying them can help us communicate better.

Radio signals can be sent over great distances through the ionosphere, which starts about 35 miles (56 km) above the Earth's surface and extends up to about 500 miles (805 km). Storms on the Sun that send lots of energetic particles to the Earth and cause aurora can distort the ionosphere and interrupt our communications. Scientists at HAARP recreate, on a small scale, what happens when the atmosphere is excited by the Sun's energy.


Artificial airglow
When HAARP was used to excite a section of the ionosphere on several days in 2000, 2001, and 2002, researcher Elizabeth Gerken, a graduate student at Stanford University in California, was there. She and her fellow scientists watched the airglow created in the ionosphere through a telescope that has a special electronic camera called a charge-coupled device, or CCD. Red or green glass filters were placed in front of the camera's lens to allow it to "see" only certain types of light. The camera's shutter was kept open for 30 seconds so it could image faint glows that are invisible to the human eye. The camera sends digital pictures directly to a computer for processing into images that Elizabeth can then analyze. By studying how the ionosphere reacts to the experiments, scientists can begin to understand how it behaves during natural airglow and aurora.


Sprites and elves
Sprites and elves may sound like creatures you'd be looking for low to the ground, maybe near some fairies or leprechauns. But you'll need to look high in the sky to find the types of sprites and elves hunted by Elizabeth. Sprites are flashes of light that sometimes appear above thunderstorms at the same time lightning hits the ground or another cloud. Sprites are difficult to spot with the human eye because they are not very bright and because they last only a portion of a second. If you divide a second into 100 pieces, a sprite would be gone after just one or two! Sprites are also rare, only occuring with about one percent (that's 1 out of 100) lightning strikes. If you think you're fast enough to catch one, look under Resources for viewing tips. Pancake-shaped elves are even more fleeting than sprites, and appear slightly before them. Elizabeth and her fellow scientists use telescopes and television cameras to look for and record these phenomena (rare events). By studying the structures of sprites and elves, and the direction in which they develop, Elizabeth hopes to learn what causes them and to better understand the atmosphere.

Well there you go, it's not a weapon or anything of the sort.

I've always thought the US Navy is more of a research organization than anything else. After all, they've shown a lot of concern about the whales & other ocean fauna...

Earth Island Journal
Copyright 1995

Clare Zickuhr, a former ARCO employee and ham radio operator based in Anchorage, is a founder of the NO HAARP campaign. Gar Smith is editor of the editor of Earth Island Journal.

The Pentagon's mysterious HAARP project, now under construction at an isolated Air Force facility near Gakona, Alaska, marks the first step toward creating the world's most powerful "ionospheric heater." Scientists, environmentalists and native peoples are concerned that HAARP's electronic transmitters -- capable of beaming "in excess of 1 gigawatts" (one billion watts) of radiated power into the Earth's ionosphere -- could harm people, endanger wildlife and trigger unforeseen environmental impacts.

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP), a joint effort of the Air Force and the Navy, is the latest in a series of a little-known Department of Defense (DoD) "active ionospheric experiments" with code-names like EXCEDE, RED AIR and CHARGE IV.

"From a DoD point of view," internal HAARP documents state, "the most exciting and challenging" part of the experiment is "its potential to control ionospheric processes" for military objectives [emphasis in the original]. According to these documents, the scientists pulling HAARP's strings envision using the system's powerful 2.8-10 megahertz (MHz) beam to burn "holes" in the ionosphere and "create an artificial lens" in the sky that could focus large bursts of electromagnetic energy "to higher altitudes... than is presently possible." The minimum area to be heated would be 50 km (31 miles) in diameter.

The initial $26 million, 320 kW HAARP project will employ 360 72-foot-tall antennas spread over four acres to direct an intense beam of focused electromagnetic energy upwards to strike the ionosphere. The Earth's ionosphere is composed of a layer of negatively and positively charged particles (electrons and ions) lying between 35 and 500 miles above the planet's surface. The next stage of the project would expand HAARP's power to 1.7 gigawatts (1.7 billion watts), making it the most powerful such transmitter on Earth. While the project's acronym implies experimentation with the Earth's aurora, HAARP's public documents make no mention of this aspect. For a project whose backers hail it as a major scientific feat, HAARP has remained extremely low-profile -- almost unknown to most Alaskans, and the rest of the country.

A November 1993 "HAARP Fact Sheet" released to the public by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) stated that the Department of Defense (DoD)-backed project would "enhance present civilian capabilities" in communications and "provide significant scientific advancements." However, while previous DoD experiments with smaller high frequency (HF) heaters in Puerto Rico, Norway and Alaska were conducted to "gain [a] better understanding" of the ionosphere, internal HAARP documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveal that the project's goal is to "perturb" the ionosphere with extremely powerful beams of energy and study "how it responds to the disturbance and how it ultimately recovers...."

The public fact sheet describes HAARP as "purely a scientific research facility which represents no threat to potential adversaries and would therefore have no value as a military target." However, while ionospheric experiments at the government's Puerto Rico transmitter site are managed by the civilian National Science Foundation, the Journal has learned that proposals for experiments on HAARP are to be routed through the Pentagon's Office of Naval Research.

Besides being a Vortex highjacker
weather manipulator
and behavior modifier,

HAARP is responsible for more GLOBAL WARMING than ALL the "greenhouse gases" in all of creation EVER could be,
but of course you never hear mention of HAARP's role in the destruction of the Earth's atmosphere by any mainstream media talking head....

Re: Here's what the Office of Naval Research says about HAARP
Dr.Nick Begich has alot of good info about Haarp's REAL purpose;

[link to www.earthpulse.com]


his Father, an Alaskan Senator who was one of the first vocal opponents against construction of the Haarp facility,
mysteriously "disappeared" never to be heard from again,
after flying through what is referred to as the Alaskan Bermuda triangle.


Nick Begich's book "Angels Don't Play This Haarp"
gives a very clear picture into what the military's true goal is with this technology.


We pray one day that they awaken from their sick destructive mind sets,
for Earth's and EVERYONE's sake headbang
