Strange lights filmed in the skies of Canberra have drawn thousands of views online. This video seems to capture two separate weather events occurring simultaneously.

The first appears to be a natural red and green “aurora” light. Whilst a white flash also appears in the sky.

Astronomer Dr Brad Tucker has some theories on what these lights could be. He described them as an “incredibly rare scenario”.

He believes the aurora colours could be a “unique, weird and powerful storm” perhaps combined with “ball lightning”.

Ball lightning is defined as a “little known kind of lightning, having the form of a moving globe of light”. Explosions of ball lightning have proven to be fatal in the past.

Users on YouTube have other explanations though. One said, “it was Bronwyn Bishop in her tax payers funded U.F.O”.

Whilst another wrote, “it was obviously a Terminator being sent back in time to kill John Connor”.

What is your take? Do you think these lights reveal an alien presence? Or something more simple, like a weather event?

  1. I don’t mean to sound rude but be honest, if the aliens came here ad seen the nuts we have in our Parliament, they would quickly run the other way

    • Agreed … but then they would probably do a much better job than the buffoons we currently have in Libby

  2. in Canberra? Anything is possible, but why would aliens target the ACT unless they were after some hot air?

  3. well that fixes any contact with Humanity, they saw Barnaby Joyce and went back home again in disgust

  4. Hopefully the men from mars will take away a few of out lying idiots of politicians though having said that they would have no use for them. As doorstops maybe. Nah, they are incapable of doing that as well.

  5. It’s all of the hot air from parliment house causing ionisation changes in the Cumulonimbus cloud structures over Black Mountain. 😉

    I saw similar lights in a huge storm a couple of weeks ago in the Northern rivers. All of the lightning was short horizontal at a high altitude. No rain but a lot of things rattled and shook at ground level for about 10 minutes.

    I had a look at t5he radar and it was just an intense cell drifting past and going out to sea around Yamba.
