The image above is what my contact sent me which shows a wide band ring covering many
hundreds of miles across the south west of Australia with a small dot (presumably cloud)
shown just right of center.

I checked the site several hours later and played a loop of the radar which was on the site at
that time.  The radar confirmed the image above and showed the ring fading but still visible
over a period of a couple of hours. Regrettably the loop could not be saved so that I could
share it here. That loop is not now on the site but the satellite image taken at 16:30 UTC is
also very interesting.  It shows a very large counter clockwise rotation over west Australia
where the mysterious large ring had appeared. It revealed a small and brief appearance of a
condensation trail formed off the coastline and from the center what had been the huge ring a
series of three small spiraling arms. These arms can be seen moving out of the area and
moving north east.  This is one of those rare occasions when I could buy weather
experimentation effects or other experiments being performed by HAARP. It is hoped to receive
an explanation from the Australian Government Weather Bureau for these series of strange
effects.

A contact in Australia just alerted me to
what he describes as "very strange
weather taking place over the south
west of Australia".  He told me to go to
the national weather satellite images if
I could not open the images he
attached (See left). By the time I had
discovered the e-mail and checked,
the large clearly defined ring had
mostly dissipated but still was just
visible on a time loop which was
spiraling counter clockwise (High
Pressure system in southern hem).
Only remains of the huge ring now moving away north east as several small spiraling arms.

My contact sent me two additional photographs taken on the 16th (15th in the USA) and
also at my request sent an inquiry to the weather observatory at Kalgoorlie and Giles in
Western Australia and received this reply:

Hi Allan,

Early Saturday there were sort of concentric circles of echoes between 200 Kms
and 400 Kms from Kalgoorlie-Boulder.  However there was no weather around
this area from which radar signals might have been reflected.  It would therefore
seem to be due to what is referred to as "anomalous propagation ".(false
echoes) or even possibly dust in the atmosphere.

Regards, Andy, Kalgoorlie-Boulder Met. Office.
Other correspondence below.
Taken at 1430 hrs. Cloud cover has moved position but the ring remains
in the same position but less well defined.
This satellite image shows cloud cover over Australia at 1630 hrs on the 16
January, 2010 which tends to support the met office statement that there was
no weather over that area from which the radar could have been reflected.
Taken at 1117hrs, noting the position of the ring from state border.

The Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology and the public response to this article.
By Colin Andrews
Update posted January 21, 2010.

There has been a huge interest in this report posted on January 15, 2010.

I received a message from a farmer who owned land below the ring who reports exceptionally hot weather during
that period, also a couple who said that they witnessed a very strange reddish haze around the sun in Sydney
two days after the ring appeared in the west of the country.

Two employees from the Bureau of Meteorology also e-mailed me about the ring, one suggesting that it was
possibly caused by a rogue frequency transmitted close to the government installation.

Here are several of the e-mails including his and my reply to him still posing a possible
HAARP involvement?.  I do
have to say, coincidence or not, the moment I mentioned
HAARP on this page, I quickly received replies from
within the Australian government.

At the end of the day I am not interested in creating a mystery or a new conspiracy theory, I would like to
understand what caused this effect and many other similar ones over various countries in the last six years or so.
Radar stations and satellite data collection has been going on now for many years but as a person who has been
very interested and involved in meteorology for over forty years, I dont seem to get totally acceptable
explanations for many of these rings. I do accept that incomplete radar returns, inversions and out of trim settings
on the ground equipment can explain many of these BUT we might be too fast accepting this explanation for all of
them.  Take a read of the replies today from employees within the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology
and we will return to this........Read below.

comments = I am a Bureau of Meteorology tech who works on the radars. Just had look at the images from the
WA area. The level 1 rain threshold is either set too low, hence picking up noise, or there is someone working
nearby on a transmitting device, which falls within the bandwidth of our radio, hence the radio "speckle"
interference. Noticed the "swept gain" attenuates the signal out, out to so many km's.

The idea of AP "Anomolous Propagation" is often when there is a temperature inversion, and the radar picks up
"false echoes" off the atmosphere.

Colin Andrews reply:

David,

Its very good of you to take the trouble to get in touch and give me this technical explanation.

Regards the possible activation of a transmitter close to the official ground radar location, how powerful and what
frequency would that need to be to interfere with your own equipment?  Is it conceivable that the same effect
could be the result of transmissions beamed from above instead of from the ground?  I believe that the
US/Australian/UK/Canadian
HAARP experimental installations are thought to be responsible for some new
previously unseen aerial phenomenon.  Thinking outside the box, is it an outside possibility that the effects seen
on Australian Met radar was created by frequency interference from the HAARP network - similar to what you
have suggested caused by ground based interference but from Satellites above?

I very much appreciate your help with resolving this.

Best wishes

Colin

Re: The round radar prob in WA, it is a BOM Radar unit which has its lower rain level threshold setup too low, ie,
too sensitive, which gives the noisy radar reading like that. Nothing to do with HAARP, which, as you know, is in
Alaska. I see images like this a lot, as I work for the Bureau of Meteorology in QLD.

comments = Dear Colin,

I read today with fascination the pictures of the SW Australia circle that appears in BOM photos.  It is of great
interest because I am out in the wheat belt area where that object was located and I can tell you during that time
period it was unusually extremely hot everyday for a whole week. Very interesting.

On the subject of crop circles (which I see you have more than a passing interest)I had the good fortune to see a
documentary which showed an Englebracht fractal crop circle which appeared near the home of Professor
Englebracht in UK.  Such an "earthly knowledge" of physical locations of human beings would be easily
accessible to MOD files and it started me thinking. It then dawned on me that the complexity of the crop circle
phenomena has increased at the SAME PACE as processing computational power has increased in computers
over the years.

This correlation has convinced me there is no "other worldly" explanation, Crop circles are simply a Govt.
Campaign of distraction. Interesting also.  I noticed you had come into contact with the Govt. propaganda dis-info
mouthpiece Nick Pope.  That man is indeed one slimy lying SOB.  I hope you gave him heaps.

Kind regards and I love your research.

hi, about 3-4 years ago there was sudden unexpected and extraordinary storm in Budapest area and in very
close Moravia, some 50-70kms away there was at that time, just before the deluge similar circular appearance on
the radar meteo map. I have even contacted the person in Czech meteo service and he swore it is not an artifact.
In my response I mentioned possibility of
HAARP but he never replied. I have no doubt about reality of weather
manipulation going on and your case is possibly one of them. Regards from Gibraltar

The picture of the "radar rings" is the result of a test period for a Tesla Shield Generator. The correct question is
"What type of government installation is located at the center of that image"

Strange Weather, 1/18/10 posting - the radar images immediately reminded me of images collected by Clifford
Carnicom, who has been studying "chemtrails" (aerosol operations) and associated issues for almost a decade.  
You can check them out at:

http://www.carnicom.com/rad0429.htm

His original website is archived at http://www.carnicom.com/originalconleft.htm , but his current site (which I find
harder to navigate) is
http://carnicom.com

I don't know if there is any relation, but they are curiously similar.

------------------------------------

I said we might be too fast to accept the usual explanations for the ring/s and I said that for these reasons.

If it is true that they are caused by the rain levels set too small then why is it that on occasions like that shown by
the loops across the United States that there are many showing up all over the country and all at the same time.  
Are they all set too low?  It seems highly unlikely.

If the ring/s is caused by a ground based rogue transmission causing the official radar equipment to effectively
send out false data or incomplete data then could it not also be possible that a similar high power transmission
from
HAARP facilities could also be the culprit?

I don't think we can yet accept that what we have been given can be accepted as the explanation for this effect.
