It's a streetlight.

It's clearly the Luminiferous aether.

I hear radio waves in my head.

Is there supposed to be an article with the image? WTF am I looking at?

26.965 - 27.405 mhz is ET with a CB.

It is speculated that the phenomena called "sporadic E propagation" of radio waves corresponds to the earth passing through comet dust as it orbits. This energizes the E layer of the ionosphere and causes it to temporally reflect radio signals back to earth. Guess what frequency range is affected? 25 to 75 MHZ.

This occurs sporadically during the Spring and Summer. Late morning and early afternoon in the US. Ham radio operators use it to communicate over otherwise impossible long distances.

What is observed here may be radio signals of terrestrial origin reflecting off of the ionization caused by meteors. In fact, Ham's use meteor showers regularly for propagation. Its a very small specialty in ham radio.

Nice theory, but the article says they ruled that out.
