That little bit of blue sky up on the left is what makes it special for me.

Hi Witchy, I have no idea how to tell if it's photoshopped. But what makes you think it is.

I especially like the first photo - so awesome. Any idea what that speckled spot is on the sea's sufrace at the bottom left?

Thought - maybe it's a lone tree and flood water.

Do you mean the yellow reflection on the second photo? I think it's the refelcted light of the mountain.

Hmm, That looks dodgy to me.... definitely a cloaked mothership or maybe HAARP :) (come on guys this is a conspiracy site);)

Nice picture. Very unusual looking.

Of course. A cloaked mothership. I've heard tell they suck up vast amounts of water to use as fuel.

Right click on the original photo and go to properties it gives this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1334672/Jaw-dropping-image-enormous-supercell-cloud-Glasgow-Montana.html

So from WP we find and airforce base that was once a POW camp in WW 2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glasgow_Airport_(U.S.)

Facilities and aircraft
The airport covers an area of 1,552 acres (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acre) (628 ha (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hectare)) at an elevation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elevation) of 2,296 feet (700 m) above mean sea level (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mean_sea_level). It has two asphalt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asphalt) paved runways (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runway): 12/30 is 5,001 by 100 feet (1,524 x 30 m) and 8/26 is 5,000 by 75 feet (1,524 x 23 m).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glasgow_Airport_(U.S.)#cite_note-FAA-0)
For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2009, the airport had 30,010 aircraft operations, an average of 82 per day: 65% general aviation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_aviation), 35% air taxi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_taxi), and <1% military (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_aviation). At that time there were 79 aircraft based at this airport: 92% single-engine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_engine), 6% multi-engine, and 1% jet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jet_aircraft).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glasgow_Airport_(U.S.)#cite_note-FAA-0)

I don't get it, Witchy. What does that mean? And what's it got to do with Montana having lots of water?

There was lots of water in the photo.

Hey T, I didnt see the ground water that you referred to
I've heard tell they suck up vast amounts of water to use as fuel so got thinking weeelllll maybe its sucking up not dropping down? so then searched for any nefarious activity in Glasgow, Montana where this was taken. I found that boeing have brought into the area and they have an active air base there. one article citing the tests on the dreamliner from Area 51 to this place (checking sound apparently)

I duck and dive everywhere - you just never know what we'll unearth..........:suspicious:

So in essence - probably absolutely nothing. A wild goose chase

ADDIT: My thought processes even worry me sometimes

Oh, maybe it isn't water. When I looked at it first off I thought it was over the sea - it might just be grassland - that would account for the tree, then :lol:

"I duck and dive everywhere - you just never know what we'll unearth.........."

Absolutely - brainstorming. Highly recommended. Because seriously - how out there can we get anymore? :lol:

I can hear a storm coming have to go download David Ickes talk so I can listen to it later on battery power.

Edit to say: Yes, definitely it looks like grassland to me now that I have it in mind.
And - there are the great lakes in Montana.

There is software on the web that can analyse photos and determine if they have been 'photoshopped' - try googling for the answer?
Good shot though.

if anyone has seen that new 'skyline' movie it looks just like the ships that are sucking all the people up into them... thought i would continue the tradition of the open avalonian brain here lol

of course it is not :) and i would have loved to watch a storm like that from a distance. it is great when your in the outback of australia watching the storms go across the sky.

okies.. here is the image.......
http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap101130.html


Explanation: Is that a spaceship or a cloud? Although it may seem like an alien mothership, it's actually a impressive thunderstorm cloud called a supercell. Such colossal storm systems center on mesocyclones -- rotating updrafts that can span several kilometers and deliver torrential rain and high winds including tornadoes. Jagged sculptured clouds adorn the supercell's edge, while wind swept dust and rain dominate the center. A tree waits patiently in the foreground. The above supercell cloud was photographed in July west of Glasgow, Montana, USA, caused minor damage, and lasted several hours before moving on.
