Title: Could we see Planet X here? Australian Antarctic Division Webcams
Post by: Yowbarb on April 19, 2010, 10:40:27 AM
This Topic is for your discussions about the webcams.  Australian Antarctic Division Webcams.

These webcams are not telescopes pointed to the heavens - but it's possible a person might
catch an early glimpse of something on them. There are webcams at these locations,

Webcam Australian Antarctic Division
Timelapse movie yesterday at Davis Station
There seems to be a second source of light - sun crosses the horizon,
apparently sets - then a second light. Could be northern lights not sure what it is...

Barb I watched the video image and at around 5:30 there is an unusual light source.  The reason I think its unusual is because it disappears and it gets dark again then the sun comes up around 8:30.

It could be the moon but its really bright.

Lori, I thought it was odd too. Granted I haven't seen too many full day time lapse photos - but I also did see two distinct light sources and yes - they were in between sundown and sunrise -it looked like.
Moon? Could be - full moon not too long ago. I agree though - seems too bright.

Maybe just the way the moonlight hits the camera.

A person can click any of the links above, in first post and see the webcam of the day. 
Also see the 24 hour time lapse of the previous day.
Still not sure what I am seeing. Any ideas anyone?
Is this just a normal sunup sunset moon etc. ?
I am seeing something I didn't notice in previous time lapses of the Antarctic webcam.

It appears to me that one is the moon, as it doesn't totally light everything, such as the sun does, when it comes up and sets, and then it looks like a whole lot of aurora in the sky. This also coincides with solar data about the K index and solar wind from the coronal holes.
Title: Re: Southerly Visuals? Australian Antarctic Division Webcams
Post by: Yowbarb on April 30, 2010, 09:00:13 AM
Ed I think you are right the aurora could have caused that visual effect - which lightened the sky.
The moon also.
Worth watching.
Thanks,
Yowbarb

It's been awhile since I checked the Antarctic Webcams.
Just happened to see this MAWSON STATION video, posted on this site:

They've turned off this camera.  It only goes to the 18th.  I think it would be a good idea to check the other sites.

OK going through the cameras:

"Due to the extreme austral winter temperatures, the South Pole webcam is currently disabled.  In its place is a video featuring aurora australis, which is a natural phenomenon of colorful light patterns seen in the sky above the South Pole during the 24 hours of darkness."

Its funny they don't have anything after the 18th. ???

Most I checked had a posting the 18th for previous 3 days.

I corrected myself above.  I did notice that the cameras are now pointed more towards the stations rather then the sky.

At the Amundsen Scott Station, the sun should rise today, been down for a long time, and the moon shouldn't have risen for many days, now.   ed

Here is a link that is not on the list above.

Click the livemovie link for the PALAOA webcam.

I have been watching it for the days now.  Here is the scary part, the "dark spot" has doubled in size since Thursday.

Do you feel that is an object between the sun and the south pole?

I had started watching the "dark Spot" from the Neumayer Station webcam until the sunrise migrated off that camera view, then started watching from the PALAOA webcam.

The object started as a small orb to the left of the sunrise and had grown larger daily and moved to the right to the point of being centered in the Sun.

A quick visit to SkyviewCafe.com proves that the object is not the Moon, Mercury or Venus.

My belief is that the object is C 2010 X1 Elenin.   It should be visible in the northern hemisphere just before sunrise for the next several days.

i know i will be summarily shot at 'sunrise' for saying this but it is a reflection or
refraction or something other than an object in the sky. :)
 
The dark object is the Sun. The camera is overwhelmed with high intensity light and the sun comes out as a Dark Disk. My wireless security camera that I point at the sun to observe it does the same thing.

Just go to the link to watch and get screen grabs of today's webvideo, then look again tomorrow, get screen grabs and compare. 

http://www.awi.de/NM_WebCam/livemovieP.html (http://www.awi.de/NM_WebCam/livemovieP.html)

If your supposition is correct, then the spot would remain constant in size and position.

It is y belief that whe Planet X, or any other object is discovered out there, there will be an avalanche of people seeing it. Pictures and such, will be able to repeat,the object, continuously. Til then, we should only see temporary objects that pass quickly. We shall see.    ed
