Apparently this is not even news. It sure is to me though. The fact that these patents are 50+ years old makes it even more intriguing. How far did they manage to improve on the 1960s technology? These inventions are not something BBC, or CNN would report on in their daily news, yet the description of the patented inventions is mind blowing. As a matter of fact, the patents you are about to see sound Sci-Fi enough to question their authenticity, yet they were officially recorded with the US Patent Office.

I am not going to post the entire contents of the below linked patents, for it's fairly pointless. The above posted excerpt should give you an idea of what you are about to see. Just click on any of the below 1960s patent links and read away.
KD: The implications of such artificial human made light sources, if implemented, are hard to comprehend. For example it would be easy to create a never setting Arctic, or Antarctic Sun, and use it as proof of the Spherical shape of our Planet.

A few of the Sun related issues we had a chance to discuss.
Official: 1 Sun + 1 Moon = Hunter's Moon
(or could it be two Suns)

Well, may be there is an explanation for all those Sun hot spots, blinking Suns, two Suns, hexagonal Suns, crepuscular Sun rays, Sun bulb replacement eclipses and what not. It sure does sound crazy, but could it be crazy just because we were trained to think that way?

Did you hear about this?

Sun Vanishes For Three Hours Over Rural Siberia, Russian Authorities Remain Mum

Three hours of darkness in the middle of the day, no explanation, maybe the sun simulator blew out.
Seems like some consequence of new technology testing, considering the military presence. It happened in a very remote area and whatever sort of tech they were experimenting with clearly has a dust producing issue. Perhaps a form of weather manipulation?

Well, whatever it is hope they get that dust kink worked out. If that was not dust but, lets say, a biological weapon...it would be very very bad.

We have much debate over the credibility of the "Roman" historians, but, most agricultural societies are highly acute observers of lunar cycles vs. sidereal cycles. Sap production being far more tied to lunar cycles. The Sun and Moon are obviously different types of light.

Too bad the best info about the Moon or the forests is considered "folklore," or mythology. Those silly peasants and their highly observant and accurate folklore!

I think it simultaneously happened in the US or Canada as well, somewhere up North.
I've heard and seen these patents two years ago lol. I would think "they" in the past made the artificial sun ever since the last sun, Saturn, went out of Earth's visible orbit.
That would suggest that whoever “they” are, they have quite a few additional technologies to do the installation, replacement and various maintenance related activities.

Would be funny if this hypothetically artificial Sun was sitting right next to them geostationary satellites.

Wonder if that blinking is caused by this?
Desert Storm (1991)

According to Defense News, April 13 - 19, 1992, the US deployed an electromagnetic pulse weapon (EMP) in Desert Storm, designed to mimic the flash of electricity from a nuclear bomb. The Sandia National Laboratory had built a 23,000 square meter laboratory on the Kirkland Air Force Base, 1989, to house the Hermes III electron beam generator capable of producing 20 Trillion Watt pulses lasting 20 billionths to 25 billionths of a second. This X-ray simulator is called a Particle Beam Fusion Accelerator. A stream of electrons hitting a metal plate can produce a pulsed X-ray or gamma ray. Hermes II had produced electron beams since 1974. These devises were apparently tested during the Gulf War, although detailed information on them is sparse.​
****Why would you need to mimic the flash of electricity from a nuclear bomb?​

A city in China is planning to launch an ‘artificial moon’ that will light up the skies as far as 50 miles around.
The so-called illumination satellite set to deploy over the southwestern city of Chengdu in 2020 is touted to be eight times as bright as the real moon, to cast a ‘dusk-like glow’ over the region, according to the People’s Daily.
Officials have released few details on the project, but say the idea pulls inspiration from a French artist who envisioned a necklace of mirrors hanging over Earth.

China guaranteed that the Olympic games would have no rain so we know they have weather control technology as well. If you've ever seen the TV show Eureka, there was quite a bit of currently available technology that's not well known revealed on that series. In one of the episodes they launched an artificial sun and even explained how they did it, saying humanity would be prepared for when our sun burns out.

Weather control has been around, in that sense for a long time. China mostly uses mortars where others use seeder planes.

You can hire it out if you have a large event. I read somewhere about Paul McCartney, if I remember right, paying in the neighborhood of 175k to prevent rain at one of his European concerts.
