MUFON Expert Explains Belgium Sized UFO Formation

Belgium Doughnut UFO Formation
Belgium Doughnut UFO Formation - 23:45; 15th March 2011

MUFON Chief Video Analyst Marc Dantonio, has today assessed the Belgium sized formation that has been occurring on Weather Radar and Satellite systems around the world.  Mr Dantonio provided UFO Briefcase with the following explanation:

I have actually seen this before and was equally perplexed until I learned years ago how Weather RADAR works. In short, there are various RADAR types and many times you will see, depending on conditions, artifacts in the resultant image. They will show up as doughnuts, rings, concentric circles, discs, and sometimes radial lines as well.

As far as the RING part of the doughnut in the image, what happens is that there are on occasion, conditions that are considerably more “opaque” to RADAR transmission than at other times.  The term “opaque” is not quite right here but serves as a good analogy.  Fully “opaque” RADAR conditions can cause rings that look like doughnuts, whereas “semi-opaque” conditions could result in concentric circles.

If you look at how RADAR is sent out from the source transmitter, you can see that the RADAR transmissions will intersect weather and return the echo. The more solid the object, the better the echo. Snow doesnt reflect back as well as Water or hail/ice. Water then, has a particular way of reflecting radar signals back that is quite useful and we see this in those doughnuts in the weather RADARs when conditions are … well… “perfect” for lack of a better term, to see the full-on failure of the RADAR to penetrate further than it typically might.

Most likely the anomalistic imagery is the result of a combination of ice/rain/snow causing the odd shapes in the perimeter around the RADAR. But the story doesn’t end there. I didn’t address that HOLE in the center of the donut but explained what I think is causing the opaque echo return.

As far as the HOLE you see making this a donut, that is a classic example of what is typically called the “Cone of Silence” .. .The weather RADAR cannot look straight up so you never see the close-in data for the RADAR location. Typically the RADAR is at a 19.5 degree angle and you will see a ‘hole’ in the coverage out to a certain distance from Weather RADARs. This is much more obvious for isolated RADAR stations where the conglomerate map of the RADAR picture is not blended evenly with other RADAR station results.

Additionally, depending on locations, a lot of other very strange artifacts can be seen. There is a phenomenon called “sea echo” that can occur in a shoreline area RADAR installation and you actually see intense wave looking returns.. They are in fact long ocean swells being reflected back but someone might think they are a fleet of enemy bombers! You can see bird echoes filling the sky during migrations. You can also get a really cool phenomenon that can create some exceedingly strange patterns in the sky through a beast called AP or anomalous propagation. This is a situation where the RADAR beam is refracted under certain conditions, down to the ground miles from the transmitter.  So there are many many types of anomalous returns. The doughnuts are typical of certain conditions too as I mentioned but certainly DO stand out – I don’t mind telling you!

But as I always say, you dont have to take my word for it!  Here is something you can do immediately to see that this is all it is:

Look at the exact geometric centre of these donuts and see if there is a RADAR station within a reasonable distance of the best guess for “hole-centre” in the doughnut. Google Earth can actually show you the RADAR stations pretty well if they are of reasonable size or are tied to a larger facility like a television station which will have various other dishes and antennas identifiable from Google Earth.

UFO Sighting | Weather Radar Detects UFO Bigger than Belgium

Unusual formations have been appearing on government weather satellite imagery all over the world. Satellite Weather images over Europe have detected an enormous unidentified object that is larger than Belgium!

The key witness has recorded their observation in order to understand exactly what was seen.  The video was uploaded onto YouTube with the following statement:
“Can somebody tell my what the heck is going on ?”

In recent years a number of similar formations have occurred around the world.  The first time UFO Briefcase came across this type of phenomenon was the repeated incidents across Australia.

The most famous Australian incident resembles are large doughnut-like formation that was was positioned over the lower South-west Corner of Western Australia.

A similar appearance again happened on the 22nd January of 2010, however this time the ‘unknown object’ was positioned over the city of Melbourne.  This particular formation almost resembles a giant CD with binary information.

Only one hour later and on the other side of the country, a new formation was observed that I consider to be the most unusual of all occurrences. Positioned over the North West shelf of Western Australia was a very solid looking formation which was again captured on weather satellite imagery.
