U.S. NAVY TRYS TO DEFLECT RITA WITH NEXT-GEN TECH?

What are those 4 things on the left?

The full animated GIF of the last 48 hours leading up to Rita's landfall can be viewed here... What are those 4 mysterious hotspots which show up as Rita heads towards the Texas coast? This image is from the Morphed Integrated Microwave Imagery satellite courtesy of the University of Wisconsin.

Could those be Navy ships employing some type of microwave technology in an effort to deflect or diminish the effect of Rita?


Richard Hoagland over at Enterprise Mission has picked up on this story as well, along with another about a mysterious radar anomoly picked up 2 weeks before Katrinia hit..
