WAS THE SPECTACULAR AURORA BOREALIS OF APRIL 6, 2000 REALLY HAARP?
The investigation continues.
By Steve Reed © 2000
I have now obtained some preliminary data, for the solar wind, on the night of the spectacular Aurora Borealis (around midnight on 6th April 2000) They show NO EXCEPTIONAL ACTIVITY. This means that some other source of ionospheric excitation, such as HAARP, perhaps, was probably responsible for the display.
I have written to the administration of the satellite, from which the data came, as follows.

Ulysses: Solar Wind data, April 2000.
I wish to show that the remarkable display of the Northern Lights around midnight, on 6th April last, cannot be correlated with any maximal electrical activity in the solar wind, at that time.
I have preliminary Ulysses data for the solar wind (April 30th, 1999 to April 29th 2000) from the swoops website, showing proton densities of 1 to 70 per cm3, for April 2000, and similarly unexceptional counts, throughout the preceding 12 months.
I note that Ulysses stood at 3.6 AU from the Sun (and closing) at the end of March 2000, and that its data should therefore correspond with the electrical strength of the solar wind, at the limit of the Earth's orbit just a few days earlier - so that, if there had been exceptional electrical activity, in the solar wind, on the night of the 6th April, it would have shown up, in Ulysses' data, well before the end of the month.
Please authorize citable data for the period of April 2000.
NEWSMAKINGNEWS AWAITS THE RESULTS OF THIS INVESTIGATION!
AN EXAMPLE OF AN AURORA BOREALIS. THIS ONE OCCURRED IN ANCHORAGE ALASKA.
THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE BY STEVE REED WAS PUBLISHED BY NEWSMAKINGNEWS ON MAY 10, 2000:
An extraordinary display of the Aurora Borealis, around midnight GMT, on
April 6th 2000, has been said, by the BBC, to coincide with a period of enhanced, solar sunspot-activity, in which an increase in the electrical charge of the solar wind would be expected to produce ionospheric effects of this nature.
The cycles of sunspot-activity, however, are several years in length, and no other, comparable display of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) has been noted during the current active phase. The Royal Greenwich Observatory (Nautical Almanac) furthermore, has not been able to confirm that any temporary increase in the electrical charge of the solar wind was noted on the night in question.
Until such confirmation is received, it might be worth bearing in mind that, according to Vankin and Whalen ("Conspiracies", Parragon, 1998) "200 miles east of Anchorage, Alaska, near the town of Gakona, the Pentagon has erected a powerful transmitter designed to beam more than three gigawatts of energy into the upper reaches of the atmosphere."
Vankin and Whalen continue: "Known as Project HAARP (High-frequency
Active Auroral Research Program) the $30 million experiment involves the
world's largest 'ionospheric heater', a prototype device designed to zap the skies hundreds of miles above the earth with high-frequency radio waves.
"Why", Vankin and Whalen go on, "irradiate the charged particles of the ionosphere (which, when energized by natural processes, make up the lovely and famous phenomenon known as the Northern Lights)?
"According to the U.S. Navy and Air Force, co-sponsors of the project," Vankin and Whalen tell us, "its purpose is to observe the complex, natural variations of Alaska's ionosphere and to develop new communications and surveillance technologies which will enable the military to send signals to nuclear submarines and to peer deep underground."
As Vankin and Whalen also say, however, opponents of HAARP, believe that its applications may range "from Star Wars missile-defense schemes to weather-modification plots, and perhaps even mind-control experiments." The evidence for these doubts, about the Pentagon's intentions, consists essentially of a patent (#4 686 605) held, since the Reagan era, by ARCO Power Technologies Inc. (APTI) the ARCO subsidiary contracted to build the HAARP facility. This patent describes the invention, by Texas physicist, Bernard J Eastlund, of a "fantastic offensive and defensive weapon" (Vankin and Whalen quoting Eastlund) which "would heat plumes of charged particles in the ionosphere...making it possible to selectively disrupt the microwave transmissions of satellites and cause interference with, and even total disruption of, communications over a large portion of the earth...it would also facilitate missile or aircraft destruction, deflection or confusion by lifting large regions of the atmosphere to an unexpectedly high altitude."
Vankin and Whalen also say: "the patent states that weather modification is possible by... altering upper atmospheric wind-patterns or altering solar absorption patterns, through the construction of one or more plumes of particles which will act as a lens to focus vast amounts of sunlight on selected portions of the earth."
The remarkable red and green auroral plumes, which were seen, throughout
the eastern portion of the northern hemisphere, on the night of April 6th last, certainly require, in my opinion, some more quantitative and time-specific explanation than the bald statement that "we are going through a period of enhanced sunspot-activity".
