Tesla Phantom Streams / Phantom Streamers

Original experiment, reduced in resolution but approximate actual size.  

The phantom streams appear here as fine-grain effluves.  In my current apparatus, these appear as faint but distinct forked branches 1/4" thick or more.

Sparks occurring actually above the photographic paper...negative induced sparks are shown on the surface, plumous lines shown extending from the branches...

During these experiments five years ago I was not able to produce Phantom Streams in the exact nature that I am now...but you can still see
how they extend past the tips of the brush discharge, especially in the lower left quadrant of this sphere.

Showing Phantom Streams  extending from a brush discharge generated from a point (thin wire)

Its not distinct in this photo, but elements of the thick positive branches (identical in structure to Kinraide's early photos) can be seen here.
