Pacific Line Speedby Lee Riddle
This morning we are seeing extensive Lining off-shore of California and Oregon. These lines can be seen utilizing the so-called “FOG” channel.
The Fog channel has nothing to do with what we think of as fog, instead it is able to detect heat signatures closer to the Earth’s surface. The Visible channel does not show these lines nearly as well…
…and is only visible when there is visible daylight. Whereas the Fog channel can “see” somewhat in the darkness. As such, we can assume that these large trails are close to the surface of the Earth (in this case the ocean surface), and are emitting heat back toward the satellite. By utilizing the “loop feature” I was able to determine that the west to east line seen at approximately the 38th parallel and heading east from the 130th Longitude towards the Mendocino Coast is traveling at about 20 MPH. It essentially traveled 40 miles east in the last two hours. This line is the continuation of a line that starts at approximately the 43rd latitude (just above the Oregon California boundary and runs south along the 130th Longitude before hooking to the east.
The question is: What can make a line 3 to 5 miles wide that travels at 20 Miles per hour?
The last picture is of the Water Vapor, which shows again that trails are forming in regions with little water vapor:
