NASA Releasing Artificial Clouds Over Maryland Coast

Associated Press is reporting that NASA is to release luminescent, artificial clouds above the mid-atlantic coast.

The clouds will be accompanied by a sounding rocket launch from the Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia’s eastern shore between 4:25 a.m. and 4:42 a.m.

NASA’s stated purpose of the release is to test a new system to support studies of the ionosphere.

NASA is to launch a sounding rocket and deploy the 10 canisters into the air about 6-12 miles from the rocket.

The canisters will “deploy blue-green and red vapor forming artificial clouds, which will allow scientists on the ground to track particle motions,” AP reports.

The report came out on Tuesday, May 30 and stated that the test would take place on Tuesday – so it is unclear to this writer whether the clouds have already been released or if they are for the following Tuesday. That’s all we know for now.

As we’ve said with the release of re-engineered mosquitoes and Zika spraying hysteria – isn’t it nice when we get told what is going to happen instead of being petitioned what experiments our public funds are used for?

Now that you know about the test, one can at least track the results of NASA’s ionosphere tests, hopefully in the near future.
