Skywatching

On December 27, 2020 I was outside watching the sky. It was close to the full moon as you may recall. So I took the photo below to show a friend what the moon looked like above my home.

Taken at 8:35pm

Until I looked at the photo, I hadn’t seen the blue light below the moon and while the moon looked less fuzzy in real life, here’s the photo. A few minutes later, I took another photo.

Taken at 8:55pm

Note there is no blue light, but it is a pretty clear night for you can see the stars as well.

I had been hearing a tapping while on the phone with my friend. Rhythmic tapping and finally I realized it was the second from the bottom of 5 power lines that was moving of its own accord and making the noise. At first it was just a tap tap tap, evenly tapping, but as the night progressed, the tapping changed its rhythm. So I got off of the phone and took the following two videos. Note that it wasn’t a windy night. No trees were moving, just the 2nd line from the bottom and only in front of my property and not beyond it even though the lines are up and down my street.

10:21pm Note no light in sky but only 2nd power line from the bottom moving and tapping. Volume up.
10:23pm Note the light which moves around. Power line 2nd from bottom rhythmically moving and tapping audibly.

Does anyone have any idea what I caught on my camera phone?

  1. I had that happen too at night when I was taking photos of the moon and the answer has to do with the camera and not what I was hoping for; a message from another universe. If you google the issue, you’ll get lots of online support. I posted one of mine before and my photog friend explained it to me. I wish it was something else, but in this case, I think not.

    1. Thank you for your update. I appreciate the help in this matter as I wasn’t sure what it was exactly nor why in some photos it’s visible and in others it’s not there. It would have been nice had it been a message…
