If the timestamp bothers you so much, buy a stop watch or use your phone stop watch and use it to see if there is any time skips or it loses that second because it was slightly slow or slightly fast

You can use that to tell us if time skipped or if it's just a glitch

To me, the video wasn't there, there could have been grey aliens carrying me out for all I know, but what I do know is that flash of light can be seen with the power still on (so please do explain how a light that's already on switches on to make that light)

People did avoid that ..


https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_Xb...w?usp=drivesdk


Let's throw up something new about the video...

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Xdi...w?usp=drivesdk

At the moment that search beam hits the ground, it not only doesn't reflect off anything, there appears to be 3 tiny fragments of light that look like a prism or spectrum

That to me suggests this light is more laser style light than your regular light is but I circled the 3 traces of light, now that light only disappears a moment or two later look closely at the video and you will see what I mean

This is every frame extracted of the power going out, there's absolutely no fluctuations there...

Why did the relays get shut down? I have only said what lousy facebook messenger people told me I don't see it happening no evidence of it at all

Here's the video in really slow motion you can see that prism take its sweet time to disappear

Anyway how many more times can I say it, this video is not possible none of it makes sense, and honestly aliens actually really does answer it, for a change

To the educated ones... look at the video watch the top of the tree as the power goes out, you see that same light appear with the power on...

Now that's more likely why the power goes out or the video drops out that beam of light or alien crap they do ...

P.s electric that has been out for 5 seconds can't produce ANY light... ugh

Fear, no attempt to explain or offer explanation of anything I bring up, avoid it and hope it goes away

Next time you see a flash but theres no reason for it like everyone else who has seen it you will then question if it was alien or your sanity, I'm here to tell you, it wouldn't be your sanity

Now I've told you what they are up to, I suggest you be quiet until you prove it's electrical or offer up a suggestion or theory that fits if you want me to play your silly little games

That's the light of the rightmost lamp. It took longer to go out than all the others, creating the illusion of a new light when the lighting conditions changed and your camera had trouble adjusting. Basically, your camera is too bad for any real investigative work.

Compare the light to the light that appears when the power comes back completely. It's the same at first, and then the camera adjusts to the light.

Last mystery solved.

It really is like talking to a child about a magic show. Did aliens find your card?

I wonder if the golden age of orbs is waning, though. One of the most common causes is on-camera flash. Many pocket cameras are designed to flash by default, and the flash right in line with the lens has a great tendency to make orbs of insects, dust motes, and so forth. Phones generally don't flash, though.

My ancient and now disused Kodak digital camera detected beautiful orbs, especially in dusty interiors and outside when it snowed. But the friendly little orbs have been scarce recently. I suspect habitat loss.

You simply aren't educated enough to understand how reclosers work.

It's this, basically. All there is to it. Except for the time stamp glitches, which as have been clearly shown are also prevalent in videos from the same system taken at other times.

I note that besides being unaware of (and unwilling to acknowledge) the designed behavior of reclosers, there's also been a consistent pattern of errors and misconceptions related to scale on cjdelphi's part that are likely caused by misapplying the principles of electronics and digital logic to grid-scale power systems.* Sure, the underlying laws of physics are the same for both, but the difference in scale means the engineering and the observed behaviors are different. Reasonable approximate understanding of behavior at one scale (e.g. that signals move through wires at close to the speed of light at the scale of integrated circuits or ordinary PC boards) becomes utterly wrong at the larger scale (e.g. expecting a section of the power grid to energize at the speed of light when a switch closes). If a step-down transformer takes even just one full AC cycle for both coils to fully energize, for example, that's a 20 millisecond delay. (More likely, it requires many cycles.) An eternity, for digital logic, but pretty much the minimal "Planck time" in the world of 50Hz AC power.

*This is reminiscent of the 9/11 truthers trying to use the behavior of small scale models like stacks of office trays or pizza boxes to "prove" the Twin Towers shouldn't have collapsed on 9/11.

It's not the timestamp that bothers. Your blithely assuring us you've considered every possibility when you hadn't even done a cursory check of your own videos to notice the timestamp skipping all over the place on another occasion is what bothers. Your assurance that you've eliminated the impossible is clearly worthless wish-fulfilment on your part.

One of the most notable properties of laser light is that it's perfectly monochromatic. A spectrum would be a very good indication that you're not seeing laser light.

I actually can't tell how you figured out which light he's talking about. When invited to look at the light at the top of the tree my first reaction was that there are a bunch of trees and their tops are out of shot.

I compared the very last frame before the time 'skips' and the frame right before it..

You can see the beam of light enters the picture as the power goes out and again 5 seconds after ...

Now let's compare that second beam of the light against the first one when then power is still on (except a block away, their power went out first)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iMV...w?usp=drivesdk

It's a dead match, even the same identical leaves are lit up... bingo!

Ah. I see what you're talking about now. In that frame where the lights are just starting to go out, there's a blue-ish glow on the leaves. You can also see it over on the right in the tree just above the roofline of the house opposite, to the left of the large silhouetted tree trunk.

Hard to see it elsewhere, as so much of the scene is bright and going dark. I wonder if that's the flash of a bat having a bad evening.

If you claim the power came on then you can also show all the boys and girls at what moment in the video... right?

Right most lamp?

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YXg...w?usp=drivesdk

You talking about one I circled? ... they're all a couple of meters off the ground there is no light source high enough to do that here

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XCv...w?usp=drivesdk

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Y7C...w?usp=drivesdk

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ybl...w?usp=drivesdk

You see all the light sources even the tallest light posts are not as tall despite being no where near, my crappy camera has no problem with the light levels that's why you see it lol

This is the glow I see. In the first frame as the lights start to go out there are two patches which momentarily look brighter. It's quite easy to see the change if you pause the very slowed down video at that frame and then click back to an earlier one.


So far as I can see only those two patches of leaves get illuminated by that blueish flash. One might speculate it's a bat getting fried but we don't know where that happened or the lines of sight from that spot to those trees.

Well, there was a reason I asked that question about what engineers get taught earlier

I seem to recall this one being discussed at length a while ago on the old Bad Science...

One of my favourites is still that YEC civil engineer blethering about how sediments form, which bears absolutely no relationship to any known geology.

Have considered studying the scientific method?

I don't need to provide an explanation. I'm not making a claim.

I'm ridiculing you because you can't produce evidence of aliens. Your shortcomings as an electrician hardly prove you were visited by or abducted by aliens.

There *IS* alien life out there, some of it intelligent, with millions of years of technological advancement.
