Theories About the Pacific Mystery Lights

Photo taken by pilot "The Flying Dutchman"
By now, many of you are aware of a set of utterly fascinating and unexplainable photos recently taken by the pilot of a commercial 747 and posted to the pbase website. The photos and story told by the pilot have now gone viral across the web and since the comments appear to be closed on the pbase page where this was originally posted I'm continuing the analysis of this event here in this special report. 

Here is the original report by the "Flying Dutchman" in it's entirety:
Last night over the Pacific Ocean, somewhere South of the Russian peninsula Kamchatka I experienced the creepiest thing so far in my flying career. After about 5 hours in flight we left Japan long time behind us and were cruising at a comfortable 34.000ft with about 4,5 hours to go towards Alaska. We heard via the radio about earthquakes in Iceland, Chile and San Francisco, and since there were a few volcanos on our route that might or might not be going off during our flight, we double checked with dispatch if there was any new activity on our route after we departed from Hongkong.

Then, very far in the distance ahead of us, just over the horizon an intense lightflash shot up from the ground. It looked like a lightning bolt, but way more intense and directed vertically up in the air. I have never seen anything like this, and there were no flashes before or after this single explosion of light. Since there were no thunderstorms on our route or weather-radar, we kept a close lookout for possible storms that might be hiding from our radar and might cause some problems later on.

I decided to try and take some pictures of the night sky and the strange green glow that was all over the Northern Hemisphere. I think it was sort of a Northern Lights but it was much more dispersed, never seen anything like this before either. About 20 minutes later in flight I noticed a deep red/orange glow appearing ahead of us, and this was a bit strange since there was supposed to be nothing but endless ocean below us for hundreds of miles around us. A distant city or group of typical Asian squid-fishing-boats would not make sense in this area, apart from the fact that the lights we saw were much larger in size and glowed red/orange, instead of the normal yellow and white that cities or ships would produce. The closer we got, the more intense the glow became, illuminating the clouds and sky below us in a scary orange glow. In a part of the world where there was supposed to be nothing but water.

The only cause of this red glow that we could think of, was the explosion of a huge volcano just underneath the surface of the ocean, about 30 minutes before we overflew that exact position. Since the nearest possible airport was at least 2 hours flying away, and the idea of flying into a highly dangerous and invisible ash-plume in the middle of the night over the vast Pacific Ocean we felt not exactly happy. Fortunately we did not encounter anything like this, but together with the very creepy unexplainable deep red/orange glow from the ocean's surface, we felt everything but comfortable. There was also no other traffic near our position or on the same routing to confirm anything of what we saw or confirm any type of ash clouds encountered. We reported our observations to Air Traffic Control and an investigation into what happened in this remote region of the ocean is now started.

Two photos included, hardly edited except for watermark and resize. Note that photos are taken with extremely high ISO (sensor sensitivity) so quality might be a bit poor. Also an overview of our route + marking of the location is included. Now I'm just hoping that if a new island has been formed there, at least it can be named after me as the official discoverer. :) That would be pretty cool!

UPDATE: Added 4 new photos and google-earth map with underwater geography
One of the photos shows our landing lights illuminating the sky ahead since we were afraid we might be encountering an ashcloud. We entered a thin layer of clouds 5 minutes after passing the red glow, but no ash was detected or encountered.

While researching the area the pilot was flying over I noticed that it's nearly the exact location of the Morozko Seamount, a cluster of subsea volcanic vents. So, this could very well have been a subsurface lava eruption of some sort and the fact that there was no visible ash plume could be due to the low, thick cloud cover. However, I still have a few problems with that theory. Firstly, I cannot find any data on these Morozko Seamounts ever erupting now or in the recent past. Secondly, there are clearly white and green lights mixed in with the red and orange lights--as we all know, there's no such thing as green lava.

The second theory is that this is a very large fishing fleet using bright lights to go after squid. We do have evidence that large groups of fishing vessels can be spotted from space, however, fishing vessels use white and amber colored flood lights to attract squid and shrimp. I used to own a boat and I've been squid and shrimp fishing many times myself in the past, so I know this to be true. Red light doesn't work because the red spectrum is absorbed by ocean water, it doesn't penetrate beyond the first few inches of the water surface. So a fleet of fishing boats using red light makes zero sense. Aside from that fact, there were no fishing vessels recorded in that area at that time. Zero.

I noticed someone posted the comment on the pbase page about the US launching a hypersonic test vehicle from the Kodiak Launch Complex in Alaska and perhaps it might be related. This is wrong too because the Kodiak facility is about 2,000 miles away from this pilots location and the Air Force already stated that the vehicle crashed "on the range" which is comprised of 37,000 acres of Alaskan wilderness. Besides, that launch vehicle is approximately 15 feet long with a very limited range and it would never have accounted for the sheer size of those lights. It blew up four seconds after launch, which amounts to a handful of miles at most.

That brings us to the final theory that this was a cluster of USOs (unidentified submerged objects) which could be alien related, military related or a combination of both. It could very well be! We simply don't know at this point, but we do know the visitors are here--and they are multi-dimensional beings. If you want a good breakdown of the BIG PICTURE of what's going on right now, I highly recommend reading our Hybrids Project blog.
