Giant Snake-shape Detected on Radar
Later that day the Australian Bureau of Meteorology’s weather radar picked up a huge serpent-shaped object in the form of a giant ‘S’ about 30 kilometres west of Rottnest Island, which lies offshore Western Australia’s capital, Perth, about 70 kilometres north of Mandurah. Many people watched the strange shape on the Bureau’s live radar feed where it was visible for an extended period as it moved northwest.
The object caused a flurry of speculation and confusion due to its immense size. At somewhere around 80 kilometres long, it dwarfed the 18 kilometre long, 4.5 kilometre wide Rottnest Island it was approaching, and earned itself the nickname “the Rottnest Monster”.
What could this massive oddity have been? Was it just a coincidence that a similarly sinuous UFO was sighted earlier that day?
