UFO Theories: Particle Beams

When directed toward the sky, a properly tuned proton beam, focused by magnetic lenses, would pass through the first few thousand meters of air with no apparent effect. 

If the energy levels are adjusted right, the beam itself wouldn't be visible. 

Then, when the energy of the beam dropped to a critical value, it would dump its remaining energy in a very short distance, ionizing the oxygen and nitrogen atoms of the atmosphere, causing one damn fine glowing ball of plasma.

Assuming a circular beam aperture, the plasma would also take on a circular shape. Viewed from the side, the plasma would have a lenticular cross-section, and possibly even a different color from the bottom to the top due to the energy gradient of the dying beam. In short, it would look just like a glowing saucer.  

The beam could quickly be moved laterally, giving the plasma the appearance of instantly moving across the sky, much as a searchlight can jump "instantly" across the bottom of a cloud.

But what about up and down? By changing the average energy of the individual protons, their range is also changed. This would make the plasma appear to instantly jump or "stairstep" vertically. By changing the number of protons per unit area in the beam (the particle flux, in nerd-speak), the plasma would appear to brighten or dim, but still staying in the same relative spot. It could be made to look so bright, onlookers might think it was about to explode.

On August 3, 2000, at 1715 hours, a witness noticed a tornado shaped cloud in sky while driving through the town of Mt Evelyn, in Victoria, Australia.  

He pointed the cloud out to his brother, a passenger in the car.

As sunset was approaching, they noticed the spectacular sunset over Mt Dandenong. 

The driver, a photographer, rang home to get a camera prepared to take some shots.

As he was looking toward the sky to see if could he could spot tornado shaped cloud, the man noticed what appeared to be a spherical cloud, orange in colour.

The brothers noticed at least three reflections from centre of the "cloud". At this point they became aware that this was not in fact a cloud. Reflections and strange movements made it look like a fireball in the sky
They could see trails of fire forming and streaking downwards. The photograph below was taken aiming toward Sale Air Force Base and the Omega Power Mast in Darriman. Are proton beams being tested at these highly secured installations?

It turns out that a beam of protons with an average energy of 500-600 million electron volts (MeV), will travel through about 1 mile of air at the density altitude of Groom Lake before dying.  

This may sound like a lot of energy, but in the accelerator world it's modest to moderate. 

There are plenty of synchotrons out there that can do at least 500 million electron volts on a continuous duty basis, and there's no need for continuous duty.

A huge synchrotron is being built not too far away. In an outer suburb of Melbourne construction began on a synchrotron, about the size of a large football stadium in early 2001.

During Surveyor V11's landing on the moon on January 7, 1968, the spacecrafts camera system picked two narrow laser beams that had been aimed towards it from two observatories in the U.S.

One popular Area 51 story was that there were no exotic craft at Groom Lake. What operated in the testing range is a particle beam device, and its operation was mistaken for disc shaped craft. A source said the device was in a long, covered trench who's cover slid away for testing. Further, this source said he had seen the device, and that nothing could be in the air for miles around when it operated.
While an interesting story, it is very difficult to figure out how a particle beam could produce spherical balls of light which danced across the sky. 

Physics however tells us that this is sot only possible, but likely.

There have been some remarkable sightings in the Groom Lake area which remain unexplained. Most of these are glowing, saucer-shaped objects, generic flying saucers.

Is there "Substance" to lights in the sky over Area 51? A theory from: http://www.serve.com/mahood/probeams.htm

What could have possibly caused such sights? Objects that can "stairstep" up apparently instantly....move across considerable distances of the sky, also apparently instantly....grow dim, then grow so bright that distant onlookers were fearful it might explode? Are they actual 'flying objects or is there another explanation for such fantastic sights?

Particle, in this context, refers to the sub-atomic bits that make up an atom. Protons and electrons (which have an electrical charge) and neutrons (which don't have a charge). When you fire charged particles into a target, they don't behave exactly as you might intuitively think. When you shoot a big bullet at a wall it starts to lose energy and slow down just as soon as it begins to impact the wall. But things on the subatomic scale are nearly so simple.

Atoms are mostly empty space with various areas of electric charge (AKA, the previously mentioned protons and electrons) just sort of hanging about. When a particle with a charge is sent careening toward an atom, it doesn't just smack into it. Instead, as it approaches, the electric field of the particle (remember, it's charged) starts interacting with the electric field of the atom's electrons and protons and begins to repel or attract, (depending on the charge of the particles) like a tiny spring. This gradual interaction tends to gently nudge or deflect the particle away from the atom, avoiding a head-on collision.

The thing about it is that this interaction is very velocity dependent (actually it depends on the square of the relative velocity). If the charged particle is moving very fast, it just sort of whizzes right by (or even through) the atom, without much interaction. Of course the particle loses a little energy in the exchange, but continues merrily along its way. Finally, when the velocity (i.e., the energy) of the particle drops below a certain critical value, it just dumps its remaining energy load into the atoms that happen to be in its neighborhood at the time, knocking off electrons and just generally causing a ruckus. The surprising thing about it is that if you give the particle enough energy, it will pass through the initial part of the target with relatively little effect, and release most of its energy at the very end of its travel, going out with a bang, so to speak.

This principle is used in some medical treatments involving treatment of cancers or tumors located where conventional surgical operations are risky, like the brain. Beams of protons of precise energy are directed into patients to zap tumors. The protons pass through intervening bone and tissue until their energy drops to a specific level where they dump their considerable remaining energy. If things are set up right, the spot where this happens is in the middle of the tumor to be zapped.

The accuracy is so good, the beams can be set up to dump their energy in only a few cubic millimeters of volume. Loma Linda Medical Center in Southern California has been a pioneer in this technology.

This only works with charged particles. Neutrons, lacking a charge, won't do it. But which charged particles? It turns out the most likely suspects for aerial pyrotechnics we're interested in are protons. Electrons can be ruled out because they're so light (about a two thousandth of the weight of a proton) they wouldn't penetrate very far in the air. The nuclei of Deuterium, Tritium and Helium can also likely be ruled out, as they are so heavy, prohibitively high amounts of energy would be necessary to scoot them across the sky. That leaves protons or antiprotons. And lacking one of those nifty Element 115 antiproton generators, antiprotons can likely be excluded due to the need for creating considerable volumes.

So that pretty much leaves a proton beam.
Technically, the stopping power of a particle beam, given as a loss of energy per distance, is quantified by something called the "Bethe formula". If one takes the results of this formula, and plots the value of the energy lost versus the distance traveled, (This is called a "Bragg curve") it becomes plain that most of the energy let loose by the charged particle is at the very end of its journey. Just how much energy is released and how far the particle gets varies tremendously with the choice of particle and just what you happen to be aiming at.

Reports of Particle Beam produced balls of dancing light were not restricted to Groom Lake.
While camping adjacent to White Sands, a man saw a number of glowing orb shapes flitting in the sky over White Sands. He was so disturbed by what he was seeing, he immediately packed up his camp and beat left the area.

There have been suggestively similar sightings at Northrop's Tejon Ranch radar cross section facility in western Antelope Valley, Southern California. There have been several fairly credible reports of glowing orbs seen around that place. These orbs don't seem to flit around as fast or as far as those reported at Groom, but a glowing orb is a glowing orb.

The most probable explanation: Radar.
A device based upon this principle would make a really exquisite radar spoofing tool. The ionized plasma would give a good radar return, giving targeting radars something else to lock on to, instead of incoming aircraft. The ability to project an object of apparent solidity to enemy radar, instantly manipulatable, would be a most valuable little toy. As an added bonus, the plasma might even have significant emissions in the IR bands, as a decoy for heat seeking missiles.
With enough engineering, it might be possible to reduce the size of the particle accelerator/generator to something small enough to fit on an aircraft. The energy requirements would still be quite large, but great advances have been made in the short-term generation of power through chemical means (i.e., airborne lasers).

The time of day of the observations (always after dark) becomes explainable also. In daytime operations the plasma would be barely visible against the sunlit sky. In order to observe the shape and quality of the projected beam, darkness would be desirable. Also personnel on the base are minimal, and so is aircraft traffic.

Another suggestion has been that the Particle Beam device is used to shoot at UFO's.
One source, a physicist in the Office of Naval Intelligence, has said that this shooting-down of non-hostile UFOs is done by out-of-control, arrogant "cowboys" using "unimaginable technologies" without any justification.
