West Hobart, Tasmania Sighting

West Hobart, Tasmania Sighting

Date: Winter - 1909

Location: West Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

A scan of old newspapers sometimes brings up reports of lights from long ago.

Maybe most could be explained but now and again a more puzzling story appears.

Winter 1909 saw talk of mystery lights even a ghost from Upper Warwick St., West Hobart.

The ghost appeared in the form of a figure of a big coat with a luminous body beneath the coat. Mystery lights were reported from Tasmania‘s North West Coast.

Similar lights to those seen in New Zealand were also reported near Hobart.

Explanations forthcoming were a conjunction of the planets Venus and Jupiter, or the witnesses leaving the local hotel at closing time. A check of astronomical data confirms that such a conjunction took place in 1909.
