Radar, chaff mystery has gone worldwide
An incident that confused Evansville-area residents in December has now gone worldwide.
Two weeks before Christmas, what looked lines of storms appeared on weather radar above Western Kentucky and Southern Illinois. The only problem? It wasn’t raining.
According to an Air National Guard spokeswoman, those were the result of military chaff – radar jamming material often employed during training exercises, the War Zone reported. The military has used it for various reasons since World War II.
Similar incidents were unfolding in Maine and Florida around the same time. Official explanations never materialized there.
Now it’s happening even farther away from home.
News.com.au– which bills itself as “Australia’s No. 1 news site” and is backed by News Corp., the same company behind Fox News and The Wall Street Journal – reported strange radar images rollicking above Sydney. But the skies were blue. Source
