RECENT EXOTIC AUSTRALIAN LIGHT-ENERGY EVENTS
Whilst researching the 1993
Banjawarn fireball-explosion-earthquake incident, I became aware of
an entirely different spectrum of bizarre, non-fireball-related light
phenomena events reportedly being observed in our skies by very
reliable Western Australian bush observers (such as those who
described the fireballs over the town of Tom Price). In common with
the fireball events, these events were rarely, if ever, being
reported in the press and do not appear to have been commented upon
by our scientific community.
These events vary in style, but nearly all involve essentially static
atmospheric light- emission events that have apparently never been
reported or observed before the 1980s, have been reported rarely
post-1985, but now have an increasing event periodicity in post-1993
One such event type commonly reported consists of massive
high-energy five-to-ten-second bursts of blue-white light seen in the
night-time skies of the upper atmosphere. Such events have been
reported in WA by many observers including meteor experts and amateur
astronomers who are categorically certain that these are not
transient light bursts due to single meteors or multiple meteor
Normally, no massive object or moving light source is seen in
association with these events. However, the massive blue-white light
energy emissions are at times quite similar in power output to those
very bright, blue-white light flash events often reported occurring
in conjunction with fireballs and their 'explosion' (as described in
Part 1 of this article series).
Similar events involving massive blue-white light burst emissions
have also been reported as occurring at ground level. For example,
one October 1994 incident that was seen from Minara station (50
kilometres east of Leonora in the Eastern Goldfields of WA) possibly
involved a night-time UFO landing and small beings with torches
combing around the station buildings. The exotic, brilliant
blue-white flare was observed at ground level as the alleged alien
spacecraft accelerated off the nearby Minara airstrip. The light from
this flash lit up the entirely dark station buildings in a brilliant
and "beautiful" blue-grey glow silhouette.
Another 1996 night-time incident was observed near Rocky Gully in
the south-west of WA and was described as a very scary event where
massive blue-white streamers of arcing electricity issued from the
forest floor into the atmosphere, creating an intense, violent,
blue-white glow (and an attendant "electrical noise") that was
visible for miles-"like someone with a giant arc welder". This event
persisted for at least several minutes. The observers fled the area
in fear for their lives, phased out by the apparently enormous energy
involved in the event.
These massive energy bursts of high-altitude, blue-white light
and/or ground-level electrical arcs are reasonably common and I have
about 100 such documented events in the WA database. Publicity from
my first NEXUS article has resulted in three similar events-one of
them from eastern Victoria-being reported to me. I am unaware of any
such similar events being reported historically in the literature
anywhere on planet Earth-except as referred to below in connection
with circa-1900 high-frequency, high-voltage EM wave experiments by
Other exotic events involve post-1993 night-time and daytime
observations of golden-orange or silver-blue-white beams or cylinders
of energy propagating vertically downward from high altitude and
hitting the Earth's surface-with no noise or surface damage and no
thunderstorm activity reported-usually in isolated outback areas.
Another style of light-energy emission event being observed
involves orange-red- coloured forms hanging statically in the night
sky. Commonly pencil-beam-shaped (vertical or at 45 degrees), but
including rare spherical forms, this style of event has been reported
since about 1985, with an apparent increase since about 1990 but with
many more sightings reported since 1993. Some 100 such events have
Luckily, in this case, an alert amateur meteor astronomer,
experienced in night-time astrophotography, has captured one such
case on film. John Goldsmith photographed this beam from his home in
Bedfordale (east of Fremantle in the Darling Ranges) at about 9.50 pm
on 24 May 1990. John's photographs are shown on the following pages.
I took a compass reading (at the spot indicated by John Goldsmith
near his telescope observing platform) across the trees as visible in
photos 2-4. The bearing was about 262-263 degrees magnetic (local
deviation is a degree or less as is the compass and reconstruction
accuracy). The beam bearing is on a direct line to the "prohibited"
area of the Fremantle Garden Island Naval Base.
This "island", or promontory, is riddled with underground
installations from World War II when it was used as a submarine base
by the US Navy/British Royal Navy/Royal Australian Navy. The southern
end of Garden Island is occupied by HMAS Stirling-our current
submarine base-where most of the Australian Collins Class subs are to
be based. Naval yards are also present under the beam bearing on the
Although we cannot deduce the exact range of the beam, it has to
be fairly close to the observer as it is in front of the clouds and
lights up some of them. It is therefore a good bet that this beam was
hanging above, or very close to, the Garden Island naval facility.
John Goldsmith had come out of his house that night to do some
astronomical telescope work. He saw the orange beam hanging
vertically in the sky and raced back inside for his camera. Being
used to capturing transient meteorite events, he knew exactly how to
set up the photo. He used 400 ASA film on settings of 30 seconds, 60
seconds, 120 seconds and 120 seconds for photos 1 to 4 respectively.
John stated that the beam lit up some clouds and was not as bright
as the images captured on film-probably due to light capture in the
exposure time, or perhaps his recall of the intensity is a bit out.
The beam did not appear to move around or change much over the five
to six minutes that it was in view, but John was concentrating hard
on the camera.
A video reconstruction utilising his four photos, each registered
on the same bright stars, demonstrates that, indeed, the beam
location is entirely static over the duration of the event. Finally,
after about five to six minutes, the beam just faded away to nothing.
There was no sound event.
The stars are seen to move over the exposure time, and possibly
the centre of orange light intensity changes a bit, downwards along
the beam. The overall beam light energy varies up and down in
intensity from photo to photo-possibly due to the varying film
exposure times or variations in the beam's actual light-emission
On the original colour photos one can see beside the orange beam a
band of weaker red lines, then blue lines, then an even weaker band
of red lines, and then blue lines again, as follows (to the left of
the major beam): O RRR BBB rrr bbb, and so on. Note that similar
spectra also exist to the right side of the beam. The spectral lines
are distributed either side of the major orange beam across a
considerable width of sky-at least twice the length of the visible
beam length and possibly more. These photos also suggest that a
'ghost' basal tail of the central major beam goes much lower,
possibly to ground level.
The photos were taken in the dark at about 9.50 pm (sunset here in
WA on 24 May 1990 was at about 5.30 pm). Note that the near-vertical
white line on the left hand side of image no. 2 is an original film
glitch and not an event of the time.
It was originally suggested that this beam was an effect created
by a ground-based laser, but checks by atmospheric scientists who
employ such devices in Australia and the USA have completely
discounted such a theory. One major problem is that the light-form
appears well up in the atmosphere and is not connected to any
ground-based laser. Another problem is the large width of the beam
when compared to normal pencil-thick laser probes which are normally
only visible within two kilometres of the beam. In addition, there
are harmonic spectral lines visible across the image.
Another suggestion was that the beam is a searchlight, yet it
cannot be a normal searchlight as it appears at high altitude with no
connection from ground level. It also has no conical section
diverging upwards, and it has exotic parallel harmonic spectral
In 1991 a Japanese astronomy magazine published an article with a
very poor black/white version of the photo, suggesting the main beam
was caused by refraction of ships' lights by a horizontal layer of
different density air. If so, why has this effect not been previously
documented anywhere over the world's oceans?
I now have many eyewitness accounts of such vertical orange beams
seen at night over land over the past two years here in WA. These
land locations are generally uninhabited and have no light sources
(such as searchlights, etc.) for refraction by air layers as
suggested by the Japanese magazine.
One 1996 Brisbane beam event report was very significant as the
observers saw very-high-voltage, blue-white discharge streamers
issuing from their house wall-mounted mains power box as an orange
beam hovered nearby in the sky. Members of another household reported
their power box hummed violently as the orange beam hovered some
distance away in the sky.
This data confirms the probability that Tesla-style longitudinal
scalar EM potentials were involved in this Brisbane event (and
therefore were possibly present during the other beam events),
probably created by a remote Tesla EM transmitter and issuing from
local space-time 'vacuum' at the standing wave target node, i.e., the
One quite feasible explanation for the orange beams is that they
are due to electromagnetic 'holograms' of light-energy being emitted
from invisible but concentrated slugs of EM standing waves. Such
waves may be of natural (e.g. Earth stress lights), human or alien
origin, but all involving multiple scalar EM wave interference.
The massive, high-altitude, blue-white light energy flashes are
possibly due to Tesla EM wave emission coupling briefly with the
upper atmosphere, whereas the ground-level flashes are possibly due
to the operation of a Tesla Magnifying Transmitter (located either in
Australia or overseas) that is transmitting EM energy through the
planet to the antipodean target site where electrical arc energy is
being violently released.
None of the reported events involving either blue-white light
energy flashes or orange-red beams or spheres occurred during or near
any kind of electrical storm or unsettled weather pattern. There is a
possibility of some unknown natural phenomenon electrically charging
selected Earth fault plane systems across WA, thence creating huge
"Earth stress lights" hanging above selected energy concentrations.
Solar charged-particle output, coupling in some peculiar style
with the Earth's ionosphere/surface, is a further possibility, but
this implies that there has been a very significant recent change in
the Earth-Sol electromagnetic and/or electrostatic equilibrium.
Such powerful and localised exotic light events, occurring in
large numbers and in such a relatively short time-span of a few
years, have never been previously reported from WA, or anywhere else
on planet Earth, in documented scientific history.
However, on occasion, isolated single high-energy (Earth stress
light?) events have been reported; e.g., in Eastern Tibet in 1947,
prior to the Red Chinese invasion, a large earthquake struck this
border area and was followed by huge, high-power, orange-red glows of
spherical light-forms which hung for days over the eastern sky.
Buddhist monks reported that these apparitions were visible from
Lhasa and they considered them at the time to be very evil omens (and
These Australian events are very high-power events and should not
mistakenly be compared with the average, isolated and very rare,
low-power "Earth stress light" and/or "min-min light" reports as
occasionally observed near seismically active earthquake zones and
only rarely reported in historical literature.
The concentrated high energies involved in the recent Australian
fireball and associated events and in the exotic static light events,
as well as their increasing event periodicities, suggest a
non-natural origin, or possibly a rapidly evolving natural system of
At this time, scalar EM wave interference is the preferred physics
mechanism for the formation of both fireballs and their associated
phenomena as well as the exotic static light emission events.
Alien UFO activities cannot be completely discounted, but they do
not fit the available human intelligence pattern which strongly
points to Earth-based technological activity.
BANJAWARN NUCLEAR BOMB SCENARIO?
During my early research enquiries in 1995 into the "Banjawarn
Bang" of 28 May 1993, Australia's ABC radio broadcast a news item
from the USA referring to US Senator Sam Nunn who was chairman of a
US Senate Inquiry into the "Japanese Aum Sect and Weapons of Mass
Destruction". Nunn was reported to have stated that the Senate
inquiry team had evidence that the Aum Supreme Truth (Aum Shinrikyo)
sect had attempted to purchase nuclear weapons from the Russians and
had also attempted to develop same from their own scientific
laboratory base-and had probably succeeded. I became worried that,
since the 28 May 1993 Goldfields event did have characteristics
similar to a nuclear blast, possibly these Aum sect loonies had
indeed acquired nuclear weapons and some sort of pulse jet (i.e.,
Nazi V1 type cruise missile) delivery system.
I contacted Dan Gelber, chief counsel of the US Senate inquiry,
and told him of my data and research. His agitated response was:
"Please express airpack everything that you have to us asap-at our
expense." I complied with his request, and also spoke to him and his
assistant several times more on the phone.
I now believe that, although the energies involved in the
Banjawarn event were of nuclear-bomb power level, the explosion was
not of nuclear but of scalar EM technology origin.
THE TESLA CONNECTION
In an early telephone call, Dan Gelber informed me that the US had
found evidence that in 1992 the Aum sect had sent a research team to
study at the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. Their
objective was to get data on Tesla's electromagnetic wave
transmission technology, as related to an earthquake-inducing weapons
system. Gelber, being a lawyer, did not seem to understand much about
this weapons system, but discussed it 'in passing' as evidence for
the Aum sect's deep desire to obtain exotic new weapons systems with
potential for mass destruction-such as nuclear bombs, nerve gas
Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was the scientific genius who
singlehandedly invented modern AC electrical rotating fields and
electrical generators, motors, plus radio (Marconi apparently stole
Tesla's ideas whilst apprenticed at Tesla's New York laboratory) and
a host of other electrical and electromagnetic devices. Most of the
foundations of modern 20th century electrical civilisation is due to
Tesla's pioneering work in the period 1880-1908.
As it happens, I have a large library of Tesla's works and many
books written about him. Tesla's electromagnetics and his
understanding of physics have always intrigued me and I have spent
many hours pouring over his patents, attempting to visualise the
circuits and his understanding.
I was greatly intrigued by Gelber's comments and pondered over
their possible significance, if any, to the Banjawarn events of 28
May 1993. I began to reread my Tesla library, searching for any
possibly relevant information.
TELEGEODYNAMICS AND TESLA WAVES
I found references to Tesla constructing a vibrating mechanical
oscillator with a perfect periodicity that he used to 'ping' the
Earth. He also tried it out on his laboratory building structure and
found that when it received a return signal of longitudinal (i.e.,
scalar) seismic or sound wave energy it added a new impulse "ping" to
the return. After a few minutes this wave reinforcement built to such
a level that harmonic oscillatory forces created local ground
earthquakes and/or began to vibrate the target building to pieces.
Tesla built this device to provide a mechanical analogy to his EM
wave research and to help him visualise the system dynamics.
Tesla describes taking a sledgehammer to one of his first devices,
as this was the only method capable of stopping the rapid collapse of
his laboratory and nearby buildings which were all vibrating
increasingly violently and in sympathy with the mechanical
oscillator's seismic wave packets.
There were vague references in the literature to Tesla's
mechanical telegeodynamics theories coupled to suggestions that he
could create the same seismic effects with EM "Tesla waves", as
produced by his "Magnifying Energy Transmitter"-a giant Tesla coil
linked to a special circuit design and a large, spherically shaped
Tesla utilised these "Tesla waves"-longitudinal (scalar) EM waves
(like sound waves) of pure electrostatic potential with no 'E'
(electrical) or 'H' (magnetic) transverse vibrational fields. He
certainly proved that he could transmit usable electrical energy in
very large quantities, without any wires and with only minor energy
losses, via his EM Magnifying Energy Transmitter. He claimed that he
was bouncing these Tesla waves through the Earth's core to the
antipodes and back to the transmitter (Tx) site. A relatively small,
10 kW-generator energy supply of just a few horsepower would rapidly
allow the buildup by resonance of millions of horsepower in the coil
circuits of this Magnifying Energy Transmitter device.
Sheets of man-made lightning and blue-white electrical streamers
would arc out of the circuit to Earth grounding points, or from the
top spherical aerial system. Locals, many miles away from Tesla's
Colorado Springs laboratory, complained of experiencing sparks and
blue-white streamers of electrical energy issuing from power lines,
generators, electric motors, etc., and even from the soles of their
boots to the ground.
Tesla had previously demonstrated that fire and flames can be
exactly reproduced by very-high-tension, high-frequency,
electrostatic potential waves (in fact, that is all a fire is when
considered in physics)-dimensions higher than the standard 'burning
of, say, carbon in oxygen' philosophy of atomic molecular chemistry.
In his patent for the EM Magnifying Energy Transmitter, Tesla
mentions that it can transmit electrostatic potential energy to the
planetary antipodes, or create a grid of standing waves and nodes of
pure electrostatic potential energy across the entire planet. He
provides a method for steering the antipodean target site by
utilising two or more waves of differing frequency and amplitude from
two or more widely separated Tx sites.
It is important to realise that he was not transmitting standard
Hertzian waves which vibrate transversely to the string direction in
normal 3D space with a constant rate of time flow-as in standard HF
radio transmission. Lord Kelvin of the London Royal Society of
Physics once had a serious argument with Tesla at a scientific
meeting in New York as Kelvin considered transverse vibrational 'E'-
and 'H'-field Hertzian waves to be the only form of EM wave
However, when invited to Tesla's laboratory, Kelvin was astounded
to see by experimental demonstration that Tesla was indeed creating
longitudinal vibrational or scalar EM waves of pure electrostatic
potential-or, as Tesla called them, non-Hertzian radiations. Kelvin
then apologised in public and confirmed the existence and nature of
the new Tesla wave.
Recent private research in the USA has demonstrated that Tesla
wavescan propagate in 'n'-dimensional space and may be engineered to
operate in a non-linear time dimension at any speed from zero to
infinite (not being limited to 'c', the speed of light).
Several Tesla waves sent from different transmitters may also be
engineered to combine by interferometry to produce an EM slug of
very-high-level infolded or contained energy, with any desired light
emission shape, colour and intensity. This slug of EM energy may be
moved around the planet at will-visibly or invisibly). The contained
energy may be released by a further specific transmission. The EM
slug can be moved into the Earth, through the air or into the sea. If
'detonated' in the Earth, an earthquake is the result. In a building
or a city, a violent explosion of pseudo nuclear style is the result
(even up to nuclear force levels).
TESLA'S "DEATH RAYS" AND SUPPRESSED EM WEAPONS TECHNOLOGY
In his later years Tesla claimed that he could produce a "death
ray", with a range of hundreds of miles, which would be useful
against aircraft. Tesla also stated that another of his inventions
would allow entire cities to be devastated by explosive EM
transmissions across intercontinental distances, to anywhere on the
planet, with no defence possible; and that EM "Tesla shields",
produced by the same new device, could defend an entire country or a
city against aircraft and shells.
He certainly made several public announcements about the
"death-ray" and "city-buster" EM weapons systems in the 1920s and
1930s, but no details of techniques have survived in the public
domain to my knowledge.
In 1924 a plethora of "death ray" and "anti-aircraft ray" stories
appeared in the New York Times. The Western Australian Kalgoorlie
Miner newspaper also published stories on these inventions during the
Various inventions were linked to scientists from several nations,
e.g., Grindell H. Mathews (UK), Dr T. F. Wall (USA), Herr Wolle
(Germany), and Grammachikoff (USSR) (as revealed by belligerent
statements by Trotsky). Details of the technology allegedly employed
by these systems are currently unavailable in the Western literature.
An Australian inventor of such a "death-ray" device, Charles
Sidney Way, was found dead-shot through the heart under mysterious
circumstances-on the promenade of an English seaside resort in late
News stories were also published in the USA about Tesla's "death
ray" inventions in 1924, 1934 and, finally, in 1938.
The 1938 press releases stated that Tesla would employ 50 million
volts in a new form of ray wave, only one-hundred-millionth of a
centimetre in diameter, based upon an entirely new principle of
physics that produced a great repelling force. Tesla stated that this
device could melt any engine and that there was no defence against
it. It could travel through interstellar space faster than light and,
if aimed at the Moon, it would turn a spot on the surface into
It would appear that Tesla was referring to something vaguely
similar to modern concepts of laser or particle beam weapons, but
possibly utilising micro-wave EM transmissions of enormous power,
travelling at speeds greater than 'c', the velocity of light. In
actual fact, physicists call waves with dimensions of
one-hundred-millionth of a centimetre (i.e., 10-9 metres) X-rays, but
the size mentioned by Tesla is also quite close to the arbitrary
boundary designated for even smaller radiations-defined as gamma
To achieve such wave-packet velocities of greater than 'c' was
thought to be impossible in Einsteinian Western physics-until the
recent redevelopment of new ideas in physics concerning the
theoretical relativistic hyperspace transmission of scalar EM
waves-or Tesla waves.
It is also now known that longitudinal scalar EM waves do indeed
produce a great repelling force on the atomic nucleus, bypassing the
outer electron shells and directly engineering or interfering with
the components of the nucleus.
Tesla was not known to make idle statements, but some of his ideas
were so incredible and beyond the 'ken' of so many other physics
peers that mainstream academics commonly just ignored his work. Only
in recent years have some brave souls come out with experimental and
theoretical studies that confirm the brilliance of this amazingly
practical and innovative mind. Most modern Western university
physicists simply ignore Tesla's work. Only Eastern European and
Russian universities normally include a study of Tesla's work in
As early as 1914, Tesla predicted the electrical control of
atmospheric moisture, and he gave some thought to how this 'weather
control' could be achieved using his magnifying transmitter. He
implied that it would be possible even to affect the Sun's EM fields
and output, or certainly modify its effects upon the Earth, by means
of EM Tesla wave transmitters.
Tesla suggested a means for lighting the ionosphere by EM waves to
produce a dull white glow-to turn night into day and make sea and air
navigation safer. This apparently magical thesis would work along the
lines of an analogy between the rarefied upper atmosphere or
ionosphere and a standard evacuated fluorescent tube: both can be lit
up by a Tesla coil radiating Tesla waves, without any wires having to
Tesla believed that nuclear radiation from specific isotopes, such
as radium or uranium, was not just the result of atomic nucleus
instability, but that the decay was caused by interaction of the
nucleus with a special ray emanating throughout the universe. He
stated that it would be possible to engineer EM "shielding" to stop
the rays and hence terminate the action of nuclear disintegration,
and that therefore, presumably, it would be possible to generate
concentrations of such rays and stimulate the nucleus into explosive
or rapid general transmutation.
Tesla's radiation and other theories, as well as more recent
theoretical studies by US physicist Tom Bearden, have enabled a full
elucidation of the reasons for a series of quite bizarre activities
associated with the Japanese Aum Supreme Truth sect at Banjawarn
station, Western Australia, during 1993, and demonstrated the sect's
close connection to the Banjawarn fireballs, explosion and
mini-Tunguska earthquake events.
As research into the "Banjawarn Bang" has progressed, an entire
collection of bizarre events and coincidences has begun to
unravel-but you will have to wait for Part 3 for that...
The next article in this series will cover intelligence on the
Japanese Aum sect as regards their interest in EM weapons and their
activities in Australia. It will also summarise the known physics and
effects of modern scalar EM weapons systems, including their
wave-transmission health effects on human and other life-forms, and
will detail a variety of recent Earth history events where such
weapons are believed to have been employed by Russian, Japanese and
covert US power groups.
