NASA Plane Collecting Air Pollution Samples Today

The scientific aircraft will fly low over the East Bay gathering samples from the atmosphere

Look, up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane...

Well, yes it is a plane.

In fact, it's an aircraft from NASA flying as low as 1,000 feet today and tomorrow over the East Bay.

The plane is collecting air quality data on behalf of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

The aircraft will fly over the Interstate 680 corridor and other Bay Area regions. It'll take off Thursday morning from the Sacramento area.

It's one of four NASA planes that will be flying over the central portion of California collecting data on how pollution flows through the atmosphere.

"In terms of the results, it's a 3D look at winter air pollution that has never been looked at before," said Ralph Borrmann, a spokesman for the air quality district.

The district paid $28,000 for its portion of the study. Air district employees will also collaborate on interpeting the results.

It's unfortunate that they couldn't take some of those Fireplace Nazi's with them and do a ejection seat test!

Chemtrails have dominated our lower atmosphere for over half a generation: http://tinyurl.com/3jbyual ...raising havoc with our health, our weather, and our agriculture. Auditing the particulate matter in the lower atmospher could create a new foundation of courage within mainstream science to start discussing these unintended consequences. One might hope.

Too bad they didn't test the air on a day chemtrails were being sprayed.

What our wineries are not yet being told concerning weather: http://tinyurl.com/ba4a64e I've been wondering why very recently the narrative of the daily mantra for atmospheric science has been rapidly changing even as mainstream media has not picked up on it for the past recent months. It's because sun spots are tracking into a null, and experts are just starting to explain the phenomenon to the rest of us atmospheric science laymen. As multiple sun cycles seem to be merging in a new cycle of low levels of sun spots, we may be entering the next mini-ice age.

After they announced they'd be flying around several of us in the Bay Area caught video and photos of a plane or planes creating massive U shaped chemtrails. Don't believe me? Watch the videos and look at the photos for your self. Normal contrails my @ss WAKE UP! Planes don't make U turns over Pleasanton, CA! http://skywatchmap.org/reports/view/631 http://youtu.be/bO0TL0m6JFM
