Australian conspiracy theorists are going nuts over a series of radar images appearing on the country’s Bureau of Meteorology website.
The Bureau’s highly-popular National Loop site shows satellite images of the country’s weather patterns.
But, since January, strange images have started to appear. First, a giant white circle appeared, centred over Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
Later, a red star showed up over Broome. The latest manifestation is a rather pretty red spiral over Melbourne.
The bureau, rather testily, insists there’s nothing out of the ordinary floating around in the Australian sky.
“If you notice any circular patterns or straight lines originating from the centre of the radar location, this is due to occasional interference to the radar data,” it says. “The Bureau is currently investigating ways to reduce these interferences.”
But of course that’s just a cover-up, as conspiracy websites are quick to point out.
It’s the government controlling Hurricane Olga, according to supernaturalufo.com.
This research program involves shooting extremely high frequency radar bursts up into the ionosphere and is obviously extremely dodgy.
