A mystery that has baffled scientists for decades and was first uncovered by Carl Sagan has gotten a remarkable explanation.
Scientists have just solved a big mystery that was first noted by famed pop scientist Carl Sagan back in the early 1990s, and the explanation is pretty amazing. It was Sagan who first spotted mysterious flashes seemingly coming from the Earth’s atmosphere as viewed from satellites, and scientists weren’t sure what was causing it, but NASA now says it may be ice crystals that are reflecting the light of the sun.
Scientists used the Naitonal Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Deep space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR), a space weather satellite launched in 2015. Scientists have seen the flashes hundreds of times every year. Sagan saw them when the Galileo spacecraft, which was studying Jupiter, was turned toward Earth in the 1990s.
“Large expanses of blue ocean and apparent coastlines are present, and close examination of the images shows a region of [mirror-like] reflection in ocean but not on land,” Sagan and his colleagues described the flashes in a 1993 study which was published in Nature.
“First, the researchers cataloged all of the prospective sunlight glints over land in images from the EPIC camera,” the NASA statement said of their methods. “The flashes show up in three distinct colors because the camera takes the red, green and blue images several minutes apart. In all, the scientists found 866 bursts between DSCOVR’s launch in June 2015 and August 2016.
“The scientists reasoned that if these 866 flashes were caused by reflected sunlight, they would be limited to certain spots on the globe – spots where the angle between the sun and Earth is the same as the angle between the spacecraft and Earth, allowing for the spacecraft to pick up the reflected light. When they plotted the locations of the glints with where those angles would match, given Earth’s tilt and the spacecraft’s location, the two matched.”

When will they mention the entire city at the bottom of Nansen Basin? I know for a fact that it exists, but how can they not? It is composed of a circle in the circle, and a ring around that, and a ring around that ring. These three parts make up the city. The outermost ring rotates counterclockwise. The innermost ring rotates clockwise. The center circle rotates counterclockwise (the same direction as the outermost ring.) There are seven towers. On the first ring there are three towers arranged in a triangular formation, and on the second ring the towers are the same, but in the opposite direction. The seventh tower is in the center circle. All in all, the city is somewhat of a golden splendor. It has bright lights that flash from the depths — and even famous Russian diver Andrey Rohzkov died to the lights flashing in his eyes, which made him panic and possibly die of cardiac arrest. If say the government of any particular government does find out about the ghost city of dead inhabitants, which was shot out of the air, then surely they will keep it a secret, if they don’t already know. For fucks sakes, it’s not like you can just pick it up and hide it somewhere.
Also, here’s a little tip: The blast in Tunguska, which has been erroneously deemed a ‘meteor’, was actually caused by this thing. The damn city is in Nansen Basin, meaning that it’s near Russia’s North shore. The damn highly ionized gas emmission caused the whole shebang.
I know this for a fact, and I’ve told people, but yet no one has taken heed to the most important story in the last few thousand years? I’ll keep saying it, and when they find the city, they’ll wonder who that guy on the internet was who was telling them about the whole thing.
