A variant on the often reported Boombee mystery light near Coffs Harbour in 1929

The Coffs Harbour/Boambee mystery has been widely reported.  This variant on the Woolgoolga Road, one of my many old UFO hunting stamping groups is interesting.  The witness goes through a classic "escalation of hypotheses" none of which seem to fit the bill - a car, a man with a lampo railway light.  An intriguing mystery light

The Travelling Light 1909 mystery

An interesting general account of the 1909 "light" mystery.  Many accounts were caused by the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, but some seemed to be a mystery.
