Strange orange lights sighted over Maryborough have left authorities and weather experts baffled.

One local news service was bombarded with calls by concerned residents who claimed to have witnessed the objects that appeared to move slowly back and forth across the sky, despite the number of reports however nobody was able to capture the lights on camera.

"Maryborough's UFO phenomenon remains unsolved after government authorities and weather experts yesterday failed to explain strange orange lights sighted by hundreds of residents during the past week."

Thanks psyche101. Yes Ive seen very convincing film footage shot in Aussie whicn seemed to depict the charateristics of these Min Mins. Interesting how the Min Min phenomena goes back to pre-European times too. Bit of an insight into Aussie culture aswell. Thanks for that.

You are most welcome I am not sure I agree with Professor Pettigrew in that the phenomena is solved. But I am sure it would help explain some sightings. Have you heard much about the Hessdalen Project? Quite an insight into earthlights as well - Quite a breakthrough in the UFO/Natural Phenomena investigation that one.

Yeh, perhaps a natural phenomenon which doesn't show up when photographed.... BTW - We do NOT drink Fosters in Australia! (That beer is so awful we only export it!)

Considering this was at night - when people see Min Mins - I reckon you would have a doozy of a time getting a half decent pic with very decent equipment. A small fast moving light against a night sky makes a tough target. Shutter speed vs Object speed would be quite something to master I would imagine.

Thanks for the link psyche101. Though when a natural 'light phenomena' is perceived as a black object with lights at each end, as in Hessdalen, I shy away from concluding that it is indeed a natural light phenomena. Nevertheless, objectivity should remain paramount. *Edit*

That is personal opinion based on what you expect an Alien craft to be constructed like though - isn't it. As the lights are constantly observed (currently about 20 times a year according to the website) there is no reason to believe this is ET but natural phenomena. I suspect plate tectonics might be a factor. The Hessdalen Project has proven beyond doubt that these lights are natural phenomena. To me, this indicates that we have much to learn about natural phenomena still and that we should open our minds a little more as to what is beneath our feet. This is what I find most admirabl...

Well, Im not really saying that all light phenomena observed are indeed alien space craft, far from it, because as we know, they are not. But your talking to someone who is convinced that some of these objects are indeed just that. My ideas of what an alien craft should look like aren't based on my own opinions but on how they actually appear to be. Also Im not really saying the Hasselden Project is misguided. It should be supported on the grounds that you've pointed out. Okay, I don't do debate but thanks. I'm going to look into the findings of the Hessdalen Project some mor... [More]

I agree. Yep our neighbours,(2 houses across), are Not Chinese either,. ,..and around Christmas time they lit a couple of lanterns. Quite nice watching them go up in the air. However i wasn't able to get clear pictures of them at all. Closest camera was my Cellphone camera, which naturally, isnt the best thing to have, in this case. Especially when it took me a few minutes to get the thing out of my pocket and working. By that stage the lanterns looked like very tiny flecks on my screen lol
