A strange S-shaped formation which appeared on weather bureau radar off the West Australian coast was not caused by cloud, the bureau says.

The shape was spotted on the weather bureau's radar map on Wednesday about 30 kilometres west of Rottnest.

After checking the satellite, the bureau's Neil Bennett ruled out the phenomenon being caused by cloud.

"There's no cloud, there's nothing to produce a rain echo, ... which we do see a lot, but not this particular shape," he said.

"They don't take on S shapes and things like that

after checking the BOM site ,the anomaly has gone
I will post a picture in a little while just having some some technical difficulties


ok here is the S in question


I have seen various strange radar returns on the BOM site for years but never a giant sea serpent like this sucker!
What could it be ? A sign that we are all Screwed maybe

Sky Serpent... And it is huge...




There's no cloud, there's nothing to produce a rain echo,... which we do see a lot, but not this particular shape," he said.

"They don't take on S shapes and things like that.

"The radar that we use are there for the detection of precipitation, it's basically just a beam going out and hitting the rain droplets or ice particles from hail.

"Sometimes the beam itself rather than going straight it gets bent back to earth and you start to pick up reflections from the ocean, rather than rain droplets."


Incredible anomaly!

It almost looks like the wake of a ship undertaking sea-trial or tests, albeit with a wide rate-of-turn.

Garden Island Naval base is not too far from that location - military testing on-board an aircraft or naval vessel maybe??

Certainly does not resemble any natural weather phenomena I am familiar with, maybe a computer glitch? - especially given the pattern and low-level rain density spread.

Cool indeed. But seldom so symmetrical.
Why, it's almost as if it's a digital artifact of some sort.

Interesting very interesting. I'd like to see how this develops. I wonder; for some reason I'm reminded of that blop sound that was...well not in that area but rather in the Atlantic. Either way I wonder if some creatures are starting to surface or something.

Bloop.Not blop.
Blops are a completely known phenomenon. Bloops are entirely different.

Very interesting (artifact?). Who knows.. but when I clicked on the link it's not there.

I wonder what could produce something like a sine wave on radar and then disappear moments later

Almost .Is that implying some doubt? I wonder why the ABC news ran with a computer glitch story when the radar is peppered with strange objects ,usually donut shaped, on a weekly basis.Many pictures of previous anomalies are available

This one is definitely different to any i have seen , and i watch it daily Anyway Lets wait for the official story from the expert officials before we cut off the snakes head .

Well, the Loch Ness Monster has been missing - maybe he relocated?

Is Nessie Dead?


Veteran Nessie spotter Gary Campbell, who keeps a register of sightings, said no one had come forward in 18 months to say they had seen the monster.


ETA: Further down in the article link I just noticed a caption under a picture:


There are some suggestions that Nessie isn¿t dead at all, but on holiday in Australia. This picture taken off the coast of Australia looks uncannily like the famous 1934 image of the Loch Ness Monster which has got locals buzzing with speculation


So, there you have it.
