Petroglyphs: The Path To Truth

Petroglyphs are vastly becoming an open interpretation of human activity. The carvings across the planet are similar and appear in discreet phases of a cataclysmic manifestation in the sky, so drastic, that it affects everything we know today.

The petroglyphs were found largely outdoors, where artists had a vantage view of the event. Could this have been the manifestation of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, or something more sinister? BuzWeaver digs into the history of the phenomenon in this edition of The Lost History Channel TKTC.

Mother Earth’s Close Calls

The Norwegian Rocket Incident occurred in the 1990s, when U.S. scientists studying the Northern Lights launched a research rocket from Norway. Russian radar interpreted the launch as a nuclear attack and President Boris Yeltsin was given eight minutes to decide on a counter attack. Fortunately for Mother Earth, the research rocket fell harmlessly into the ocean before Yeltsin could decide. The incident is among 10 diferent scenarios where the world nearly ended. Tune in to this edition of Alltime 10s for nine other scintillating incidents.

Aurora Borealis

Sometimes called “The Dance of the Spirits,” the Aurora Borealis is a natural light display visible through the winter months, particularly in high latitude regions of the Arctic. This time-lapse by Chris Tandy captures the Northern Lights last January in the Kvæfjord and Harstad areas of northern Norway. The majority of the displays involve undulating patterns of green light, but in rare instances, red and blue lights can also be seen.

What causes the Aurora? Theories about its origins have been debated for centuries and common misconceptions persist that the aurora is the sun’s rays scattered off ice crystals in the high atmosphere. In truth, the light is created more than 100km above Earth’s surface as high-speed electrons and protons ejected from the sun in a solar flare collide with air molecules in the upper atmosphere.
