Somewhere Under the Rainbow?

October 30, 2012

When I was a kid, I was very frightened by The Wizard of Oz.  I used to hide in my parent’s bedroom when that movie came on.  It had all those frightening elements of uncertainty; a tornado, a witch, flying monkeys and all of that stuff.  It did have one comforting aspect though and that was a beautiful rainbow. Now that I have grown up and matured, I am no longer afraid of witches and flying monkeys based upon observation. As you know if you have read my blog, tornadoes still scare me because I think I know what is orbiting up and through the center. Unfortunately, I have more bad news. There is no pot of gold underneath a rainbow. Actually, based upon my research, underneath some rainbows, you are more likely to find a SINKHOLE.

While many rainbows can be created with a water hose and and some sunshine, others are actually showing us the circumhorizontal and/or elliptical arc of dark matter particle(s) orbiting with the Earth’s center of mass.  Many “Fire Rainbow Clouds” have actually been witnessed before earthquakes.  As moisture in the air passes through/near their orbital arc, the particle freezes the water vapor due to the low temperature it is creating from the collapse of atmospheric gasses, creating miniature ice prisms, which in turn refract the light rays and form a beautiful rainbow.  The reason you many times see these rainbows along with storms is that the particle orbiting through that arc is condensing water vapor and forming the clouds that created the storm in the first place.  If you look closely at the top right of the video below, you might even convince yourself that this rainbow is gradually creating clouds.  Enjoy these types of rainbows from a distance.  Somebody please let Dorothy know.  I am beginning to like the monkeys a lot more…

  1. I drove through a rainbow once, early morning mid-winter, just south of San Fransisco, CA., along the San Andres fault. The east leg was right on the side of 280 (or is that 285?). As I approached, each rain drop threw of a prism of rainbow light, so there were thousands of little rainbows filling my vision field. When I got to the leg itself, there was a radiant “ball” of white light at the base, and it seemed as if the water was bending and focusing the white light in one spot. Quite the sight.

    • Tim,

      You were fortunate to drive through the orbital path of weakly interacting massive dark matter particle(s) If it remained focused on the fault for too long a period it can trigger an earthquake, since it will create a weak area through the earth along its orbit.

      Best not to linger long, it is not good for biology either.

    • Also, dark matter bends light just like their big brothers.

  2. Thanks for the reply. I find your theory intriguing. In relation to dark matter bending light: I am assuming you mean black holes by big brothers, which absorb light, bending it in through gravitational pull, right? So, with a smaller, orbiting particle, would the bending of light result in a focusing of a frequency due to the fact that its’ location is periodic? What I saw was very much like that white light was being focused through a prism. The other interesting thing about this particular rainbow was its’ stationary position; in the past when I have tried approaching a rainbow, it appears to move away.

    • The rainbows that move away are those triggered from water refraction of light, no big deal. Those that are stationary are triggered from dark matter (micro black holes) in orbit with the Earth’s center of mass. Depending upon their orbital frequency and mass they are able to bend light rays along their path and redirect/focus them on the glowing spot that you saw.

    • Tim,

      The particles should be able to bend light due to their gravitational effect close to their surface. Depending upon their relativistic velocity maybe that would look like a blinking light to an observer…it should gather up and focus light in the direction of the orbit with each pass. Some rainbows appear to lightup the area.

  3. I have a picture of a rainbow directly above my street. It was sort of horizontal in the clouds..not the usual vertical orientation. No rain that day just the rainbow in a cloud.

  4. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to get very close to a rain/light generated rainbow. Probably got within 100 yards, in my car again. As I approached the leg, the whole thing disappeared, even though the rainfall and sunlight appeared to remain the same. Very different from the CA. rainbow.

    • That was the harmless kind. The kind you saw in California can weaken a fault line over time. The massive particle can slowly gravitationally fracture earthen material. The damage is done over tens of thousands of orbits and the a fault line with pressure built up can then rupture.
