The title “Spotlights over Woden” is a little misleading, the pedantic would say the lights were probably on the ground, but pointing towards the sky. Nonetheless.
About three or four spotlights were shining into the night sky last night, at around 8pm (but I wasn’t paying attention to the time), just above Woden from my point of view in Pearce. They were moving around in a pattern, as though they were spotting something within a 1km diameter. This went on for about an hour, but once I ran out of cigarettes I had less initiative to stare blankly into the sky so I soon lost interest.
Perhaps related, there were flashes of lightning further towards tuggers.
