From Tom Bearden
- That one is a beauty.
- The "continuous" weather engineering over the
U.S. began on July 4, 1976 -- a bicentennial present to us from the Russians.
Prior to that time, it was tested over the U.S. quite a few times. One
of the early type tests was precisely the creation of such "holes
in the clouds", often looking as if precisely drawn with drafting
tools. As I recall, I saw several articles (and pictures) back then of
that phenomenon, in the various weather magazines and weather journals.
