NASA Claims Massive Show of Lights in Atlantic Ocean off South America is Merely "Fishing Boats"
October 24th, 2013
Interesting to say the least, that NASA claims a satellite viewed light show in the South Atlantic, obviously the size of a small country, as merely a collection of high wattage "fishing boats."
To understand the scale of this "fishing boat light show," below is a map of South America:
The light show would have to be a collection of very bright boats larger than the state of South Carolina, based upon the mileage scale, at the very least.
NASA explains, "There are no human settlements there, nor fires or gas wells. But there are an awful lot of fishing boats." Seriously? Fishing Boats?
Almost 500 miles off the coast? Thats a great deal of fishing boats...
Below is the NASA explanation:
The night fishermen are hunting for Illex argentinus, a species of short-finned squid that forms the second largest squid fishery on the planet. The squid are found tens to hundreds of kilometers offshore from roughly Rio de Janeiro to Tierra del Fuego (22 to 54 degrees South latitude). They live 80 to 600 meters (250 to 2,000 feet) below the surface, feeding on shrimp, crabs, and fish. In turn, Illex are consumed by larger finfish, whales, seals, sea birds, penguins ... and humans.
Illex argentinus, Okay, Got it....
