Lights over Canberra

By Button - 27 February 2008 14

While driving home on Barry drive last night we saw some greenish lights (almost like stars) falling from the sky – anyone else see them or know what they are about??

[ED: green lights falling from the sky? Meteors high a high copper content? Any astronomers out there?]

What’s Your opinion?

Probably burning pubes falling from an overpassing aircraft.

Jazz: you can lodge an online aircraft noise complaint about the overflight with Air Services Australia.

Copper UFOs.

No doubt about it….

Luddites and NIMBYs as usual wanting to hold our country back.

The airport should be allowed to function 24 hours.

You NIMBYs should really be applying yourselves to something worthwhile, like addressing poverty or disadvantage.

anyone think we can round up a rent-a-crowd opposed to 6am-11pm flight? 😉

You mean an 11pm to 6am curfew? I’m pretty sure the airport would laugh at any attempt to shut them down during daytime 🙂

Today is the last day to write a submission to Canberra airport in support of a 6am-11pm curfew for
Canberra airport.

The airport is running this assesment of themselves by themself. Cos self-assessment will be the fairest way… (or will it just mean the ACT govt doesn’t have to stir themselves to edo anything..)

Saw the same thing I think, driving north up Northbourne at about 9pm near the netball centre, off to the left a large bright light not high in the sky, descending as if towards the airport, but nothing like a plane light. Only glimpsed through trees though.

dont know about lights but there was something bloody loud that flew over my place at 4.14am thismorning.

now i can understand why people living under flightpaths get a bit pissed off.

Bits of that US satellite that they blew up last week?…
