Are there any top secret military bases in the area?
The Perth Observatory has put paid to claims of UFOs circling the night sky of Geraldton, saying local people are practising a very old prank.
Geraldton police, the Department of Conservation and Land Management and the observatory have been receiving calls from residents describing three bright lights in the sky in a triangle formation.
Aircraft and flares have been ruled out.
But astronomical observer Tom Smith from the Perth Observatory says similar reports are received from the metropolitan area from time to time and the prank is not new.
"We're pretty sure the kids are getting up to pranks. I'd rather not go into detail, we don't want them happening all the time and definitely not during the summer months - there's a good possibility of starting bush fires, that's why we don't want to say too much about it," he said.
