:hmm I found this interesting ..... as I have never seen a story of this nature before. :hmm


Satellite captures enormous 90-mile-wide storm that's UNDERWATER
21st February 2012 By Daily Mail Reporter

A Nasa satellite has provided jaw-dropping pictures of a huge 'storm' brewing under the sea.

The swirling mass of water - which measures a whopping 93 miles wide - has been spotted off the coast of South Africa by the Terra satellite on December 26.

But there's no need to alert international shipping, or worry about the poor fish that might find themselves in an endless washing cycle - the body of water poses no threat.

Stunning image: The 90-mile-wide whirlpool, spotted off the coast of South Africa by Nasa's Terra satellite, looks deadly but it more likely to create life by lifting nutrients from the ocean floor


Indeed, it is more likely to create life by sucking nutrients from the bed and bringing them to the surface.

The sea storms - which are better known as eddies - form bizarre whirl shaped shapes deep beneath the ocean's surface.

This counter-clockwise eddy is thought to have peeled off from the Agulhas Current, which flows along the southeastern coast of Africa and around the tip of South Africa.


Image
Closer look: A detail from the Terra photo shows the eddy is turning counter-clockwise - with the water surrounding it becoming a deeper blue the further it is from the centre


Agulhas eddies - also called 'current rings' - tend to be among the largest in the world, transporting warm, salty water from the Indian Ocean to the South Atlantic.

Agulhas eddies can remove juvenile fish from the continental shelf, reducing catch sizes if one passes through a fishing region.
The bizarre phenomenon was spotted when the Terra satellite was conducting a routine natural-colour image of the Earth.

Somebody referred to Clive Cussler in reference to another issue. He also wrote a book that dealt with just such strong whirlpools (eddies) and how they can be artificially generated... :hmm

That would be me ;) .... in the book... POLAR SHIFT by Clive Cussler; the whirlpools are caused by ELF's (extremely low frequencies) that some nefarious persons are manipulating. On other sites, people are saying that they can feel and hear the Earth rumbling. Elephants and sea mammals use the same ELF's to communicate over huge distances. Back in November (around 11/1/11), I personally had an experience which really freaked me out... It was about 3:30 am and I had just fallen asleep a couple hours earlier and I woke up because I was vibrating. I mean not the ground (we do have a lot of trains and miltary jets and 'copters) but this was myself. I first thought I was having a heart attack or stroke or something. There was no sound, no feeling of cavatation like you feel when a chopper goes by, house was not shaking, just like a humming sound going through me. Lasted about 3 mins actually. Kinda scary at first but when I realized it was not life threatening, I was OK. In the morning I told my new agey friend.. and she I was going to a type of ascension because different gates were being opened at this time. IDK but something happened. :dunno

Also, check out what's going on the sun that Ruts posted. Curiouser and Curiouser!!!

Good to see you Leo! That's right, I remember now about your post on Cussler. Did you see the object going in front of the sun on that video Dutch posted? really weird...
