Strange spiral light in the sky?

Spiral light in the sky

The ABC is reporting UFO sightings last night across NSW, Queensland and the ACT.

We had our own report emailed in as well:

Anyone else see a white spiral moving across the sky about 6am this morning?

What was it? It looked a bit like this

but with not as many spirals (and no blue light).

Anyone else see it? If you got a picture email images@the-riotact.com

UPDATE: A bloke called Destin Sparks has found this story and emailed in the above image with the following note:

I was on top of Mt Coot Tha, Brisbane waiting for sunrise when this was spotted, I wasn’t quick enough to get any photos of it approaching when it was nice and sharp, however I managed to take a couple of photos as it was disappearing into the distance.

Kind Regards
Destin Sparks

And only a few days after the Westall story. Uncanny.

You misspelled ‘totally meaningless coincidence’.

There’s bound to be extraterrestrial intelligence out there somewhere (because there’s bugger all down here)lol, but please don’t let it be Mully!!

The truth is out there…

…and it turns out to more prosaic than some had hoped.

Ahh, makes you feel safe at night doesn’t it πŸ™‚

The ABC News web site is carrying a photo taken of the spiral this morning from a location in Belconnen. Does anyone know where the photo was taken from…?

And the Westall Flying Saucer documentary is actually being repeated tonight on Austar and Foxtel on the Sci Fi Channel at 6:30!

Maybe the spiral object will appear in the sky again tonight or tomorrow morning!

SpaceX launched the Falcon 9 heavy lifter to orbit this morning at about 4:45 am our time from the Eastern US. Given that it takes about 90 minutes to orbit the earth and the vehile was put into a roll in orbit, it’s entirely possible that what was seen was the Falcon 9 on it’s first orbit.

Wikipedia reference suggets the Norway spiral maybe a variation of the Northern Lights phenomenon.

…Or a Russian missle test which went pear-shaped.

Maybe this is something similar? I’m betting NZ – I always knew their “humanitarian defence force” was a sham – expect an invasion soon!

A few hours you mean? The world premiere of the documentary was at 8.30pm Friday night. Today Tonight ran a story on Westall on Thursday night.

Probably just another one of Kevin’s promises being launched into outer space.

Waiting For Godot 11:04 am 05 Jun 10

Gee, Today Tonight does a story about UFOs on Thursday, and on Friday we have a spate of UFO sightings. I suppose if Foxtel starts repeating The X Files we might have even more.

How could I have missed something like that?
