Strange balls of light have puzzled visitors and locals alike in Western Queensland for over a century.
These eerie glowing orbs, which the local Aborginal people believe to be the spirits of the deceased, are said to follow unsuspecting travellers and can even reduce grown men to tears.
One witness – Genevieve Hammond – had been out camping with her husband in Queensland’s Channel Country on a particularly clear and cold night when she encountered the phenomenon.
“We were on a remote cattle station,” she said. “We were camping out and we saw this greenish oval shaped blurry light bobbing up and down. It was parallel to the horizon, about a kilometre away, and seemed to be a metre from the ground. It moved very slowly to the left and then came back on itself and it went on like this for about 15 minutes. It was silent and very eerie.”
“It couldn’t have been anything else, there’s no other explanation, it was the Min Min light.”
