Since it is always warm here in Telos and in the Hollow Earth, we have no craving for warm foods. We prefer cool foods that have just been picked and prepared in salad variations. We don’t do any baking here, at least not the kind you do on the surface. Yes, we do have “baked” goods, but they are “baked” in a different way, much like the food dryers you use to dry banana chips. We can make delicious cakes this way that still maintain their Life Force and keep their enzymes intact.
The North Pole Inner Earth Expedition is by far the most innovative and courageous exploration effort in modern times. We are unable to go to the Moon. We are decades away from manned exploration to Mars. This Expedition to the North Pole region is possible and within reach.
Novelist Lobsang Rampa in his book The Cave of the Ancients said an underground chamber system exists beneath the Himalayas of Tibet, filled with ancient machinery, records and treasure. Michael Grumley, a cryptozoologist, has linked Bigfoot and other hominid cryptids to ancient tunnel systems underground.
When I started to take my leave, he seemed reluctant to have me go, and asked me to come again. Although at the time I thought nothing of it, I remember now that he made a peculiar remark as I extended my hand in leave-taking. “You will come again?” he asked. “Yes, you will come again some day. I am sure you will; and I shall show you my library and tell you many things of which you have never dreamed, things so wonderful that it may be you will not believe me.”
Just know that when you eat fruits or vegetables, from trees or plants, it is their Life Force you need for your health. It is the Life Force you want and this is what keeps you connected to the Creator. When you eat dead, toxic foods, you become just that – dead and toxic – and your life is shortened and it becomes difficult to sustain your body. Then disease sets in.
To me it seemed there was no possibility of our escaping a horrible death. The little sloop was shipping water, the snow was falling so fast as to be blinding, and the waves were tumbling over our counters in reckless white-sprayed fury. There was no telling what instant we should be dashed against some drifting ice-pack. The tremendous swells would heave us up to the very peaks of mountainous waves, then plunge us down into the depths of the sea’s trough as if our fishing-sloop were a fragile shell. Gigantic white-capped waves, like veritable walls, fenced us in, fore and aft.
In 1981, I took my family and we flew to Fairbanks, Alaska to check out the hollow earth theory. While there, I met John Gagne, who had gone to Alaska several years previously searching for evidence of Our Hollow Earth. He related to me that while working as a Radio Anchorman in Juneau, the Alaska capitol, one weekend he was out with his friends up a canyon near the city, they saw a UFO light up on the top of a nearby mountain. It presently turned red and zipped off into space. Back on the radio station he brought up the subject of the UFO he and his buddies had seen. Shortly after that, he related, a woman named Sylvia Darvell came into his office and told him about her dear friend, Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s discovery. She said she had been involved in Alaskan politics for many years and was a close friend of the Admiral. She said that after the Admiral had made a flight into the Arctic in the winter of 1947, he had come to her and told her what he found. The Admiral told her that after flying beyond the pole he had come to open ocean, then a continent covered with lush vegetation where a mammoth was sighted wandering below. He reported that soon he was sided by flying craft that have since come to be known as flying saucers, which took control of his craft and landed him near an inner earth city. He was taken into the inner earth city and interviewed by a government official of that land beyond the pole, who gave him a message to return to the United States government.
Lunar crater Byrd is named after him, as was the United States Navy dry cargo ship USNS Richard E. Byrd (T-AKE-4) and the now decommissioned Charles F. Adams-class guided missile destroyer USS Richard E. Byrd (DDG-23).
7. We will establish that the arctic remains of frozen mammoths, woolly rhino, steppe lions, giant deer and other animals found on the northern shores of Siberia and Alaska originate from inner earth and are still living there, and were not suddenly frozen in some supposed Ice Age catastrophe.
The ballsy Admiral, full of courage, once talked with a race of people from inside the center of the Earth, as the story goes, allegedly documented in his personal diary which was released years after his death.
Set in the tense and tumultuous 1930s, the action-filled Hollow Earth Expedition is inspired by the literary works of genre giants Edgar Rice Burroughs, Jules Verne, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The subterranean action is powered by Ubiquity, an innovative roleplaying system that emphasizes storytelling and cinematic action.
Some also speak about Operation Highjump and Admiral Byrd’s journeys where extremely advanced airships were seen flying around and exploring new territories. Not long ago, we discovered a map of the third Reich in which there are several secret passages depicted which were used by German U-Boats to access mysterious underground regions, as well as a complete map of both hemispheres and the mysterious kingdom of Agartha.
Vegetation grew in lavish exuberance, and fruit of all kinds possessed the most delicate flavor. Clusters of grapes four and five feet in length, each grape as large as an orange, and apples larger than a man’s head typified the wonderful growth of all things on the “inside” of the Earth.
Another evidence the North Polar Opening is not on the Canadian side of the pole are all the flights made in the attempted rescue of the Lost Soviet Flyers who disappeared in the region of the pole as described in Stefannson’s Unsolved Mysteries of the Arctic. In 1937, the Soviet flyers had attempted to fly north of the Kara Sea towards Alaska. If you draw a line straight across the Arctic from the Kara Sea north of Russia to Alaska, that line of flight would take you directly over our estimated location of the North Polar Opening. Curiously, radio transmissions from that ill-fated flight were received, but grew fainter and fainter until they were received no more — exactly what would be expected if they flew into the North Polar Opening. Moscow called off the search after 7 months. Stefansson has a map in his book showing all the flight paths of the U.S. airplanes that assisted in that search effort. They flew all over that area north of Canada. This further confirms that the Polar Opening is located on the Russian side of the pole.
Surprisingly (or maybe not) proponents of Hollow Earth Theory frequently cite NASA photographs and video as proof of their cause. Many photos from space do show anomalous formations at the poles. Most can be explained away by science, but a few remain controversial. Some even claim NORAD satellites do not travel over the poles, due to the fact that they keep getting lost within the earth. Computer images (allegedly) support this claim, but of course NASA does not.
Peary named the land he saw Crocker Land. So MacMillan was returning to see if he could find it. In 1914, at an estimated 78 miles from land over the sea ice in the direction Peary saw Crocker Land, MacMillan recorded, “April 21st was a beautiful day; all mist was gone and the clear blue of the sky extended down to the very horizon. Green was no sooner out of the igloo than he came running back, calling in through the door, ‘We have it!’ Following Green, we ran to the top of the highest mound. There could be no doubt about it. Great heavens! what a land! Hills, valleys, snow-capped peaks extending through at least one hundred and twenty degrees of the horizon. I turned to Pee-a-wah-to anxiously and asked him toward which point we had better lay course. After critically examining the supposed landfall for a few minutes, he astounded me by replying that he thought it was poo-jok (mist). E-took-a-shoo offered no encouragement, saying, ‘Perhaps it is.’ Green was still convinced that it must be land. At any rate, it was worth watching. As we proceeded the landscape gradually changed its appearance and varied in extend with the swinging around of the sun; finally at night it disappeared altogether. As we drank our hot tea and gnawed the pemican, we did a good deal of thinking. Could Peary with all his experience have been mistaken? Was this mirage which had deceived us the very thing which had deceived him eight years before? If he did see Crocker Land, then it was considerably more than 120 miles away, for we were now at least 100 miles from shore, with nothing in sight.” (pg. 80)
Ken Johnston, in his interview also mentioned having seen photos of that spacecraft on the far side of the moon. He said it looked like a spacecraft out of the Star Wars movie. Who knows what planet it came from. Ken also commented in his interview how our Apollo astronauts set up seismograph instruments on the moon that recorded the impact of spent lunar modules that were crashed into the moon after delivering the astronauts back to the command module, to cause an artificial moonquake, and the result was that the moon rang like a bell, indicating that the moon is hollow, the evidence of which I detail in my ebook. He also mentioned the recent European Space Agency spacecraft’s flyby of Mar’s moon Phobos with ground penetrating radar that determined that Phobos is also hollow! Ken was saying that various nations now have a race on to get to Phobos to perhaps claim it as their own. A space treaty prevents all nations from claiming any natural celestial body, but because Phobos has been determined to be hollow, they think it must be artificial, and perhaps abandoned, so that perhaps they can claim it.
But, then again, that’s the real issue. There are those who say Byrd’s 1947 flight never even occurred, and so the question becomes: Is Byrd’s diary real, or is it a falsification dreamt up by some great hoaxer?
Glass has a density of 2.6, so if the Sun’s shell has a density of 2.86, then this could indicate that it is a giant crystal ball with some metal impurities — just as the spectroscopic images show. On Michael’s home page is a still image in gold color of the solid surface of the Sun showing some mountain peaks, which in another movie short on his website you can watch lightning flashing from those peaks.
The explorer Ferdynand Ossendowski wrote a book in 1922 titled Beasts, Men and Gods. Ossendowski said he was told about a subterranean kingdom that exists inside the Earth. It was known to Buddhists as Agharti.
Throughout the centuries, as explained in Dorothy Leon’s book, explorers have reached Our Hollow Earth, and many authors have written about this Secret of the Ages. The Epic of Gilgamesh, from the Myths from Mesopotamia, by N. K. Sanders, Peguin, MD, 1960, an explorer reached Inner Earth through communicating tunnels (probably built by the anti-deluvians). The epic relates, “After nine leagues in the TUNNELS, he felt not the wind on his face, but the darkness was thick…After eleven leagues the dawn of light (Inner Sun) appeared. At the end of twelve leagues the (inner) SUN streamed out…There was the Garden of the Gods.”
I step inside and my eyes adjust to the beautiful coloration that seems to be filling the room completely. Then I begin to see my surroundings. What greeted my eyes is the most beautiful sight of my entire existence. It is in fact too beautiful and wondrous to describe. It is exquisite and delicate. I do not think there exists a human term that can describe it in any detail with justice!
1005 Hours- I alter altitude to 1400 feet and execute a sharp left turn to better examine the valley below. It is green with either moss or a type of tight knit grass. The Light here seems different. I cannot see the Sun anymore. We make another left turn and we spot what seems to be a large animal of some kind below us. It appears to be an elephant! NO!!! It looks more like a mammoth! This is incredible! Yet, there it is! Decrease altitude to 1000 feet and take binoculars to better examine the animal. It is confirmed – it is definitely a mammoth-like ani mal! Report this to base camp.
Second, we have received a confirmation from those that KNOW our earth is hollow, that we are RIGHT ON in our estimated location for the north polar opening. Steve Currey, while presenting the expedition in the seminar in Buenos Aires, Argentina was approached a very interesting person. He offered to fill the ship with voyagers. Steve at first didn’t realize who this representative was. The thought of getting the ship filled really did excite Steve. The only requirement given was that the expedition would be financed through a Foundation they would set up for the expedition in Utah. Steve realized that if they would be sponsoring and paying for the expedition, they could determine where we would go in the arctic. He realized that this would be unacceptable. We cannot accept money and sponsorship of someone who would prevent us from going in the direction we estimate the North Polar Opening is located.
However, Flat-Earthers aren’t the only group who reckon our governments are keeping a huge secret about the planet. Subscribers of the Hollow Earth theory believe that…well, you can probably guess from the name.
A ice-hole gravity experiment in Greenland reported in the February 27, 1989 Physical Review Letters journal discovered that the acceleration of gravity decreases faster than if the center of gravity were in the center of the earth, which would be the case if the earth is hollow.
It is important to note that the frozen mammoth remains and other animal remains increase in number the farther north one goes in Siberia, being most numerous in the New Siberian Islands. You can read this report at http://www.creationevidence.org/scientific_evid/mammoths/mammoths.html. This indicates to me that these mammoth and exotic animal remains were perhaps spewed out of our hollow earth through the polar opening north of the New Siberian Islands onto the Siberian coasts by the water of Noah’s flood or some subsequent world-wide catastrophe such as at the time of the Israelite exodus from Egypt in 1495 B.C. Scientists have belabored over the origin of these frozen mammoth remains in Siberia for decades, but Olaf Jansen gave the answer to how these animals are found mangled with large tree trunk remains and undigested vegetation in their stomachs. He reported that they originate from inside our Hollow Earth.
In order for the sun to have a strong magnetic field, it would have to be hollow with a solid shell and an inner sun inside of it that is also a solid crystal – the shell rotating at a different rate than the inner body. So I did a calculation of the mass of the sun to see if it could have a solid shell. Indeed, the calculation showed that if the sun has a shell that is 10% of the diameter of the sun in thickness – it would have a density of 2.86 gm/cc – which is about the density of glass with a few impurities. So the sun has a solid surface. If the sun has a solid surface, then it has to be hollow because it doesn’t have enough mass to be solid all the way through. In fact, it has been recognized that the sun has a cooler surface than it’s upper atmosphere. The sun has also been discovered to have coronal holes at its poles.
3/3/2012. Listen to the interview of Foster Gamble with John B. Wells on Coast to Coast AM concerning his excellent documentary Thrive, in which he explains how our world is controlled by a global elite who want to eliminate 90% of the world’s population. In his video Thrive, Foster Gamble explains that there is a better way, one in which the people of earth can thrive and have abundance. And it is all based on his discovery that abundance systems emanate from an energy pattern called a torus (a donut shape), which is, in fact, the shape of our hollow earth, as well as all bodies in space.
In my book, I conclude that the Ether of space is the underlying foundational premise of the Unified Field Theory. It is the prime construct of the universe. Everything is made of it. It’s ever constant flow into the earth holds us to the planet. It governs the motions of both solar systems and the electrons orbiting the nucleus of atoms, their magnetic fields, electrostatic and centrifugal forces. It is the force of inertia. The ether is a tenuous etheric substance or spiritual gas that fills the universe. It gives life to all things. It is the medium that the communication of prayer uses to transmit messages. It’s resistance to the passage of light is what gives light a speed limit. It is the “Light of Christ” that fills every soul to give us life and understanding. It is the Power of God which he uses to govern the universe. The acceleration of the ether into the shell of the planet is what keeps our feet firmly planted on the surface of the planet. It’s acceleration into the inner surface equally keeps those that live on the interior surface of our hollow earth with their feet firmly planted on the inner surface. However, the acceleration of gravity into the opposite side of the hollow earth and the interior sun do decrease the weight of a person standing on the inner surface by somewhat more than 1/3rd of our outer surface gravity.
The Walls of the Tunnels are very smooth. If you were to pull a hollow tube through a ball of clay you can get an idea of how smooth. The walls have what is likened to a marble finish, which are made of a metal substance, impenetrable; the surface of the walls cannot be penetrated even by a diamond drill nor will a laser penetrate the surface.
Early in life I displayed an aptitude for books, and at the age of nine years was placed in a private school in Stockholm, remaining there until I was fourteen. After this I made regular trips with my Father on all his fishing voyages.
One Book of Enoch, written in the Aramaic language of Jesus’ time has survived the centuries, and was translated by R. H. Charles. In this book, Enoch wrote, “And I went from then to the MIDDLE OF THE EARTH, and I saw a blessed place in which there were trees with branches abiding and blooming.” (Chap 26:1) He speaks also of the ABYSS in the earth — his word for the hollow of our earth. He spoke of “columns of FIRE” that struggle “together to the end of the ABYSS” referring to the solar wind from the inner sun that emanates out through the polar openings to light up the auroras at the polar ends of the earth. (Chap 21:4-5) He speaks of the four rivers that come out of the Garden of Eden that “take their course in the CAVITY OF THE NORTH” indicating that he knew the north polar opening exists and within the earth is located the lost Garden of Eden and its four rivers that flow to the four points of the compass thus giving the earth “four corners” that the scriptures speak of. (see Isa 11:12). Enoch knew that the righteous dead are taken to the inner sun Paradise or Heaven of the Spiritual World of this earth saying, “and thus have the spirits of the righteous been separated. Namely, by a CHASM (the hollow), by WATER (the earth’s shell covered with oceans), and by LIGHT (the inner sun) above it.” (Chapter 22:9-10)
\Olaf Jansen was never a Christian nor Jew. To his dying day, Olaf Jansen was the ardent worshiper of the Norwegian gods, Odin and Thor – his ancestors. His purpose was not to advance the reality of religion, but in recording his experience in the Garden of Eden, he was reporting exactly what he saw and what the people who live there told him. They explained to him that the garden he was taken to inside Our Hollow Earth was none other than the “navel of the earth,” and “the cradle of the human race,” and is called “Eden.”
Harder to understand is why the idea survived several centuries of scientific progress, including the powerful notion of nature’s horror vacui. In a 1692 scientific paper, Edmund Halley – yes, he of comet fame – put forth the idea that Earth consists of a shell about 800 km thick, and of two inner concentric shells and an innermost core with about the same diameter as the planet Mars.
In due time we returned to Jehu, at which place we spent one month in fixing up and overhauling our little fishing sloop. After all was in readiness, the same ship “Naz” that originally discovered us, took us on board and sailed to the mouth of the River Hiddekel.
(2) Is the so-called “secret diary” of Admiral Byrd that has been circulating amongst those of us who are interested in the Hollow Earth Theory since the late 70s in fact a true account of that alleged flight?
Prior to his Arctic expedition, Nansen had visited Russia and consulted with their experts about their sighting of a mirage of land they termed Sannikov land north of the New Siberian Islands. The New Siberian islands even today are covered with bones and remains of mammoths and other inner earth animals that Olaf Jansen claims fell into ice crevasses of inner earth rivers that empty into the Arctic Polar Opening where they froze and later were carried out to sea and eventually ended up deposited onto northern Arctic shores. Remains of woolly rhino, steppe lions, giant deer, mammoth, foxes and a hardy breed horse that scientists claim are prehistoric are preserved in the Arctic ice. Recently, some scientists have been attempting to find some of these exotic animal remains that are frozen and preserved in Arctic ice. They want to take samples of the frozen flesh and use it to clone these exotic animals to start a sort of Jurassic Park. Little do they know that a Jurassic Park of sorts already exists located inside Our Hollow Earth, and can be reached through the North Polar Opening, north of the New Siberian Islands, from whence all the frozen exotic carcasses come from.
One day about this time, my Father startled me by calling my attention to a novel sight far in front of us, almost at the horizon. “It is a mock sun,” exclaimed my father. “I have read of them; it is called a reflection or mirage. It will soon pass away.”
If it is to be believed that the Earth is in fact hollow, and home to all manner of super-race and megafauna, why have we never contacted them, or gone there? According to Cluff, we have, but an international banking conspiracy has worked to cover up the existence of the Hollow Earth, and hide evidence of any Symmes Holes. This sort of paranoid, conspiratorial thinking tends to be another hallmark among modern Hollow Earth believers, because, really there is no other force that could be keeping us from engaging with the wonders of the inner Earth, given our current level of technology and exploratory freedom.
The 1996 release of Byrd’s diary of the May 9, 1926, flight revealed erased (but still legible) sextant sights that sharply differ with Byrd’s later June 22 typewritten official report to the National Geographic Society. Byrd took a sextant reading of the Sun at 7:07:10 GCT. His erased diary record shows the apparent (observed) solar altitude to have been 19°25’30”, while his later official typescript reports the same 7:07:10 apparent solar altitude to have been 18°18’18”. On the basis of this and other data in the diary, Dennis Rawlins concluded that Byrd steered accurately, and flew about eighty percent of the distance to the Pole before turning back because of an engine oil leak, but later falsified his official report to support his claim of reaching the pole. Others disagree with Rawlins. In 1998, Colonel William Molett, an experienced navigator published Due north?; Molett maintained that Rawlins had put too much significance in erased navigational calculations which can be explained by any number of other reasons, including favorable wind speeds as well as simple human error due to stress and lack of sleep. None of Molett’s hypotheses explain how Byrd could have observed two completely different sextant altitudes in the same second of time.
Labeled as ‘fringe ideas’ by most level-headed people, this study included an in-depth look into such areas as the Alien/UFO phenomenon, government conspiracy theories, New Age thought and other related topics. In undertaking this study, like most people, I was partially motivated by my own curiosity, as well as by a personal desire to expand my understanding of such matters so that I could write about them in a more knowledgeable fashion.
The reader of the following documentation should find a striking example of dire devotion. Especially when one considers that this log diary was written in the year 1947 in the months of February and March, under circumstances that evidently defied the imagination and credibility, for those times as any others. Here is dealt with the evident answers the origin of the so called UFOs, as well as the Hollow Earth, or as the admiral described.
We have time to cook nourishing foods, time to exercise, and time to indulge in our creativity. This slower pace has many advantages. We don’t have the pressure and stress as you do on the surface. All we do is in harmony and peace. Our lives are tranquil and in tune with the Creator.
For example, in J.W. Buel’s, THE WORLD’S WONDER’S, we read that in 1799, a fisherman of Tongoose, named Schumachoff discovered a tremendous woolly mammoth preserved in a huge block of ice clear as crystal along the banks of the river Lena that empties into the Arctic Ocean from Siberia. When some of these animals were opened up, undigested green vegetation was found in their stomachs indicating that these animals froze so quickly that only shortly before they froze they had been able to find green vegetation to eat not too far distant from where they fell into the ice and were frozen. Olaf also explains in his book that the inner earth rivers that empty into the Arctic Ocean within the North Polar Opening is the origin of most the fresh-water icebergs that cover the Arctic Ocean. Many Arctic explorers noticed that these icebergs often contain sand, dirt and tree branches that are scrapped off the river banks as the icebergs are pushed out to sea in summer. Sometimes these icebergs also carry the carcasses of inner earth animals that accidentally fall into the ice and are frozen, such as the baby woolly rhinoceros that has now been discovered in Siberia.
We were almost beside ourselves with joy, but hunger bade us end our enforced fast. Now that we had found fresh water in the open sea, what might we not expect in this strange latitude where ship had never before sailed and the splash of an oar had never been heard?
Like many believers, Cluff is convinced by the accounts of others who claim to have already found and even visited the “inner Earth”. Chief among them is Karl Unger, a German sailor said to be part of a 1943 U-boat expedition to the South Pole. The submarine apparently entered the Hollow Earth through an underwater passageway, and its crew were greeted by an advanced civilisation in a place called “Rainbow Island”. (Hitler was reportedly a believer, and some conspiracy theorists are convinced he escaped to the Hollow Earth at the end of the Second World War and is still there.) Then there’s Admiral Richard Byrd, a highly decorated US Naval officer whose supposedly hushed-up “secret diary” of a 1947 expedition to the North Pole is believed to contain descriptions of a land full of lush lakes, greenery and woolly mammoths (Byrd was actually in the South Pole at the time). There’s even a retired colonel in the US Air Force, Billie Faye Woodward, who claims that he and his twin sister (both hermaphrodites) were born in the Hollow Earth.
Marshall Gardner wrote A Journey to the Earth’s Interior in 1913 and an expanded edition in 1920. He placed an interior sun in the hollow Earth. He even built a working model of the hollow Earth and patented it. Gardner made no mention of Reed, but did take Symmes to task for his ideas. In the same time Vladimir Obruchev wrote a fiction novel Plutonia, where the hollow Earth’s interior possessed one inner (central) sun and was inhabited by prehistoric species. The interior was connected with the surface by a hole in the Arctic.
Our food is very delicately prepared and it is all ‘live’ and freshly picked. We eat mostly fruits and vegetables and grains, and our soy products, which we ferment out in the open air. We do “cook” some of our foods, but our type of “cooking” is much different from yours, because we don’t use electricity or microwaves or skillets or ovens or fire. We use technology that funnels heat into the food causing it only to warm up without changing its molecular structure in any way. We have technology that warms, without harming the Life Force. But most of our foods we eat at room temperature, and we are used to eating foods at this temperature.
“This author [Giannini] cares not a little how you, or Palmer, or Palmer’s magazine, use the name, Giannini. But inasmuch as the name has been known and respected for more than 60 years, from Vancouver to San Diego – due to the activity of the late Amadeo Peter Giannini of bank of Italy and Bank of America fame…”
My list member says that perfect visibility at 37,000 feet from an airline plane should allow you to see about 235 miles. I estimate the passengers on the one flight from New York to Bangkok, Indonesia would need to be able to see 424 miles in order to see the polar opening on the left of the plane before the plane gets to Northland, Russia. Passengers on the two flights from Moscow to the Russian city near Alaska would need to see about 358 miles in order to see the polar opening on the left of the plane after it passes over Northland, Russia, which is the land closest to the polar opening location. So most likely even these closest flights to the polar opening are too far away for the passengers to see the hole in the earth, but they may get close enough to see the curvature of the earth into the opening.
Our plants give themselves to us freely, allowing us to eat the fruits of their harvests, because we never remove or kill the plant upon which the fruit or vegetable grows. Because they are alive in consciousness and contain their Life Force intact, we are consuming the Life Force of the plant and it continues its existence in us. So in effect, it lives on.
1/20/2011. The sun rose 2 days early this year in the town of Ilulissat, Greenland, which is located on the western shore of Greenland, just north of the Arctic Circle, 66 degrees north Latitude — that latitude where the sun does not set on the summer solstice, and does not rise on the winter solstice. Traditionally, Ilulissat residents expect to see their first sunrise on January 13. This year it appeared on January 11, two days early. This could have occurred as a mirage. As warm air rises from within the earth through the north polar opening, it rises above the cold air next to the ice in the arctic, creating a layer of air with a different density that could cause this mirage effect, bending the light of the sun below the horizon up to warm layer of air and back down to the town of Ilulissat. Learn more about mirages in the Arctic here.
