Another spiral, in Australia

Still reeling from the spiral over Norway a few months ago, it seems that another one has been spotted, this time over Australia. It doesn’t look photoshopped, and the reports are from credible sources. Is it a sign? Read below the news article excerpt.

UFO spotted over eastern Australia
“People across New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT say they were startled this morning by a huge white light moving across the sky. Canberra resident James Butcher says he was driving home from a night out with his brother when they spotted the “strange spiral light in the sky”. “It had a distinct bright centre, much like a bright star, indicating an object shedding light trails, spiralling and fattening out from it,” he said. “The effect lasted only two or three minutes, moving and descending quickly out of view. “The colour was yellowish but this may have been blurred and tinted by the morning fog.” Wollongong man Eddie Wise says he also saw the light during his morning walk just before 6:00am. He says he has never seen anything like it. “It was like a yellowish, greenish light with a light spiral around it,” he said. “It sort of moved around, bobbed up and down and then it went behind a cloud. “I’m just amazed. I want to know what it was.”

Queensland sightings
“A number of people from Morayfield and Caboolture in Queensland have reported that they too saw a white light in the sky about 5:50am. “It was just the one light. I just came home from my walk and I happened to look up in the sky, and here it was racing across the sky,” Linda told 612 ABC Brisbane. “I bashed on the window for my husband to have a look and he flew out. “It was spectacular.” Linda described the light as like a lollipop swirl.”

In another news article titled “Australians surprised by bright light“,  “Early risers along Australia’s east coast have been startled by a bright spiral moving across the sky. Callers to the A-B-C say they were frightened when they saw a white light bigger than the moon moving slowly in an arc through the sky this morning. Witnesses say the spiral fell below the horizon just before six o’clock. Astronomer Simon O’Toole says there’s no need for alarm and that it was not a UFO. He says the phenomenon was probably caused by a meteor or space junk.”

Space junk?

“There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, Luke 21:25

Is it a sign? The Greek word for ‘sign’ used in Luke is miracle. Probe Ministries describes it this way: “Miracles are those acts that only God can perform; usually superseding natural laws. Baker’s Dictionary of the Bible defines a miracle as “an event in the external world brought about by the immediate agency or the simple volition of God.” It goes on to add that a miracle occurs to show that the power behind it is not limited to the laws of matter or mind as it interrupts fixed natural laws. So the term supernatural applies quite accurately. It’s very interesting that a common word used for miracle in the New Testament can also be translated “sign.” A miracle is a sign that God uses to point to Himself; the same way we follow signs to find a museum or an airport.”

I’m intrigued. A spiral….hmmm.
