Australians Say They’ve Spotted Crop Circle Equivalent In Weather Radar

Posted by on April 20th, 2010


Even good old fashioned crop circles are getting totally pwned in the digital age. Corn-stopping shapes are totally old and busted, mysterious digital radar patterns are the new hotness in Australia.

THEY are the digital-age equivalent of crop circles – mysterious patterns appearing on the Bureau of Meteorology’s national radar system without any explanation.

And the random images described as red stars, rings of fire and white doughnuts are sending online conspiracy websites into meltdown.

The anomalies first began on January 15 when an “iced doughnut” appeared over Kalgoorlie in WA.

Satellite imagery showed there was no cloud over the area at the time to explain the unusual phenomenon but farmers’ online comments claimed it was “unusually hot” all day.

It was followed by a bizarre red star over Broome on January 22 and a sinister spiral burst over Melbourne described by amateur radar buffs as the Ring Of Fire Fault.

The Bureau, which did not respond to repeated requests for comment, has acknowledged the anomalies on its popular website.

Could this be communications with an alien force or just a desperate attempt by regular weather patterns to rustle up a few headlines since Iceland’s drama queen volcano is hogging all the ink? YOU DECIDE!
