Invisible arcs from Twisted Electrical Conductor and the patterns formed in dusty layer

Standby for images of features i did not put much emphasis on

They are indirectly related to the spider features.

Strings of Craters occurred in the power-on mode as the conductor was brought to the CRT screen.

Here is the first to compare to the chains of craters on Mercury.
And something made with a different probe.

In all this we may want to ask ourselve how can we account for the finely divided material coating the surface. The existance of two specific features side-by-side should also raise some questions. From the CRT experiments these question may be answered, i've seen fine streams of material rain down on the surface, craters and chains of craters, spiders just like the one in the mercury image and chains of those spiders. We see mostly craters on on Mercury but the way they occur in long detached chains is thoroughly worthy of special attention. The two features mentioned above as side-by-side are especially curious because one is covered in a find dust while the other appears different and negative releif is only seen in one. We should look for others of this appearance,, i have not found any yet. But i have replicated on a CRT the spider feature and the covering of fine dust as an intermediate phase between discharges which leave negative relief spiders.

Certain parts of this video clip will help to dramatize a concept that seems plausable.

Imagine a band of energy, may going pole to pole, but triggered by an intruding Birkeland Current. If such a phenomenon were to occur, and leave surface features, there may be a way to prove the electrical concept experimentally.


We now know about celestial Birkeland currents which carry electrical energy through space, so we should thoroughly consider what would happen as one of these interacts with a celestial body such as Mercury. Rope-like currents are known to extend through the tails of planets and between the sun and planets. If they achieve close proximity to a planetary body of minimal protection, such as Mercury, we may be justified in wondering if the result is likely to be a discharge between the body and the Birkeland current. The image above might give us a clue about what feature to expect from that discharge.

a cord-wise discharge from the monitor to a single leg of an AC cord. When the monitor was energized crater features were formed and material transfered to the sheeth, then with power off material transfered back and then came the arcs that formed these features.

Certain parts of this video clip will help to dramatize this concept.
