Chinese Likely Responsible for Green Laser Lights Recently Seen over Hawaii

Chinese Likely Responsible for Green Laser Lights Recently Seen over Hawaii

A most likely candidate as an instrument aboard the Chinese Daqi-1/AEMS satellite,

While the Biden administration was ineptly dealing with the Chinese spy balloon floating across the country, a camera located on a Hawaiian peak captured a series of green laser beams darting across the sky that appear to have originated from a Chinese satellite.

Lasting a matter of seconds, just as it turned 2:00 a.m. local time (7:00 a.m. ET), footage from the camera caught the bands arcing left to right, footage shows. While the owners of the camera initially supposed it was a NASA mapping satellite, the U.S. space organization has said that it was not them, suggesting it may have been the Chinese.

The camera—looking out from Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano—is attached to the Subaru Telescope, and is a joint venture between the Asahi Shimbun newspaper and the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ).

On January 29, it posted the footage on YouTube, suggesting that the beams could have come from a remote-sensing laser altimeter from NASA’s ICESat-2/43613 satellite, launched in September 2018 as part of its Earth Observing System with the goal of measuring and monitoring the impacts of climate change. According to NASA, it is able to emit 10,000 pulses a second.

The ICESat-2, which is owned by NASA and used to keep an eye on the thickness of Earth’s sea ice, ice sheets, and forests, was originally thought to be the source of the lights. However, it took several days to determine that the laser beams likely came from a Chinese unit, which reportedly monitors the atmosphere.

…[O]n 6 February 2022, NAOJ updated their footage of the laser beam saying that based on the trajectory, it was unlikely to be NASA after all.

“According to Dr. Martino, Anthony J., a NASA scientist working on ICESat-2 ATLAS, it is not by their instrument but by others,” a note on the YouTube video explains.

“His colleagues, Dr. Alvaro Ivanoff et al., did a simulation of the trajectory of satellites that have a similar instrument and found a most likely candidate as the ACDL instrument by the Chinese Daqi-1/AEMS satellite.

“We really appreciate their efforts in the identification of the light. We are sorry about our confusion related to this event and its potential impact on the ICESat-2 team.”

China’s Daqi-1 satellite was launched in April 2022 and is reportedly an atmospheric environment monitoring satellite.

Daqi-1 can monitor fine particle pollution like PM2.5, pollutant gases, including nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide and ozone, and carbon dioxide concentration. China aims to produce a series of Daqi satellites to provide remote sensing data support for environmental authorities and scientific research on global climate change.

A China Long March 4C rocket launched the Daqi-1 mission on April 15, 2022, according to Rocket Launch. It is equipped with five remote sensing instruments, including atmospheric detection lidar, a high-precision polarization scanner, a multi-angle polarization imager, an ultraviolet hyperspectral atmospheric composition detector and wide-field imaging spectrometer to improve global carbon monitoring and atmospheric pollution monitoring.

Here are the five instruments.

  •  ACDL (Aerosol and Carbon dioxide Detection Lidar)
  •  DPC-II (Directional Polarimetric Camera)
  •  EMI-II (Environmental Trace Gas Monitoring Instrument)
  •  POSP (Particulate Observing Scanning Polarization)
  •  WSI (Wide Spectral Imager)

A new report indicates that China has more than double the fossil fuel CO2 emissions of the U.S. and will remain the world’s largest carbon polluter for some time.

Given the global angst about this trace gas and American trepidation about China’s activities in our nation’s skies, perhaps China should confine its atmospheric studies over China for the time being.

Artificial aurora. Ionized particles following magnetic field lines (charged particles can’t cross magnetic field lines).

It almost seems like they’re preparing for something.

    But we can be sure that the current regime will stand four square against doing anything to protect the United States.

    Of course they are. With the assistance of of the Chicomms’s American quislings (Biden and McConnell), the US has depleted most of his war supply in Ukraine, and the US military’s ranks have become men in dresses, traitors like Mark Miley, low IQ inductees, drug addicts and street criminals. The draftee base is metro-sexual, triggered underemployed men and – if women are to be drafted – triggered harridans.

    The smartest thing Taiwan can do is develop a nuke program asap. Same for South Korea.

    The other smart thing Taiwan can do is move ALL it’s proprietary chip-making machines abroad and out of Chicomm hands.

    Taiwan’s TSMC to bring its most advanced chip manufacturing to Arizona

    The time is ripe for an invasion of Taiwan.

    Considering China’s track record it would not be wise to trust them. I think China released Wuhan Coronavirus 19 intentionally, they thought they could afford to lose more people and still come out on top.

      I think the US and China released COVID-19 intentionally, to cull the ranks of those receiving pensions. If you had a massive pension funding problem, what better way to reduce your liability than with a disease disproportionately affecting the elderly?

Likely the Chinese. These would be mind games right along with visible balloons and new objects to shoot down. They know the American public is ripe for psy-ops because of our pent up stress after Covid, and because of daily crime reports and just general social anxiety including our open southern border. America is a jittery nation right now. We are suffering from ‘who do we trust or believe’?

Biden gave China the green light after they paid Hunter.

If you’re gonna do whatever you want to the US, now’s the time to do it. The world knows we have a seriously weak imbecile in the White House and there’s zero chance of repercussions.

    They also have our Joint Chief of Staff – Mark Miley – in their pocket. The also have half our Senate and House in their pocket, not to mention the likes of Al Gore.

    Perhaps another Pearl Harbor is what it is going to take to save our nation as 50 states. While another Pearl Harbor is inevitable (damn history, always repeating itself), I doubt anything will save our nation as 50 states – and given the rabid fascist movement in our nation (and the war against us by our own government) that probably won’t be a bad thing.

    You are being too kind to refer to Xiden as a weak imbecile.

Old news. Very old news. The CCP gets away with being the largest CO2 emitter on the planet because to this day the UN considers China to be a developing country and therefore exempt from the draconian green agenda laws that are destroying the Western countries.
