 Victoria: Andrews blasts off—into space?

23.05.20. Eagle-eyed Central Victorians were abuzz last night after a fireball moved across the night sky. Experts said the bright flying object was most likely a piece of space junk that was burning up after entering the Earth’s atmosphere. On the other hand, it is rumoured by politically savvy Victorians that it was their idiot premier Andrews always full of wind, taking a dunny break, let one go while sneaking a cigarette and the ignition sent him into space where amateur star gazers said he could be seen sitting beside that other dummy in Elon Musk’s old electric car he sent into space and became lost.
The bright object was spotted in Bendigo moving east towards Daylesford and beyond. It could also be seen from parts of northern Tasmania. Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Southern Queensland Jonti Horner said the slow speed of the object pointed to the likelihood it was space junk. “The slow speed, about 6 kilometres per second, is a very telltale sign that it is space junk,” he said.

Mysterious flying object lighting up sky in central Victoria believed to be space junk

Possible link to Russian rocket launch
He said extra-terrestrial material such as fragments of a comet or asteroid would move much more quickly.
Professor Horner said it was possible the object was part of a rocket used to launch a Russian satellite several hours earlier.
“Astronomy is a detective story, it’s very cool, I love seeing things like this.”
He said the object would likely burn up high in the atmosphere but there was a chance some small pieces might make it to the ground.
Perry Vlahos from the Astronomical Society of Victoria agreed the object could have been be part of a Russian rocket.
“Because of the slow speed and shallow angle, and the fact it is disintegrating in the video suggests it was something in orbit like a small satellite,” he said.
“It’s still considered space junk because it was in space, it’s re-entering the atmosphere and burning up,” he said

      May we add Puzzleduck, Triad and Co., along with Dog Ears Dan?

    I think I read/heard somewhere that the space junk was actually a failed Russian Rocket, that was supposed to launch a spy satellite, but failed to reach orbit hight? It’s only a few months since we Tasmanians were “entertained” by a meteorite, complete with a sonic boom, that frightened the crap out of us as it zoomed over and crashed into Bass Strait.

    I think Albo was up there as he said the error the Liberals had made in regards to the 60 Billion Dollars was so open you could see it from space.
    Daniel Andrews would cruse the skies as he oversees all , and life must cease as you do not need to do it, so just don’t…Aliens in my mind, are both

    Victoriastan.

    Belted and railroaded.

    Borrow money from China to buy wind and solar equipment from China, while China increases manufacturing capacity using mostly coal fired baseload power station generators.

      DT, this sort of thing is why I have lost respect for the current leaders: the stupid bastards just do not get it; all they do is talk in ever decreasing circles and soon they will be so constricted it won’t be funney!!

      Will it ever change? There are still a lot of real good ones amongst them but they are mostly ignored.

    Full marks to the AWU senior executive who is backing the Morrison Government’s diplomatic stand against the CCP.

    One of the minority of union leaders who really does represent the workers, or is trying very hard to represent, and to be a patriot.

      Yes DT, there are still quite a few who are bloody decent.
      Instance the nurses union bloke supporting the Rockhampton nurse who is being scapegoated and shat upon from a great height by Qld. Labor when it was really their responsibility and fault and the poor nurse is being unfairly blamed. The story is in todays Courier Mail. Sorry I cannot cut-n-paste as I don’t subscribe and it is a fairly long article.

      Re. unions; I have a grandson builder who left the hard working private sector to work on a public funded job and was “gently” coerced into joining and guess what the fee is????> A whole whopping bloody one thousand and three hundred dollars. He was reluctant at first and they couldn’t legally force him to join, but they gave him real shit jobs and after a few days he joined and then the cushey jobs happened!! Now he is having a holiday at work compared to the private sector!! and making more money. He was given some (what I consider disgraceful) stickers and “encouraged” him to apply them and when they were not fitted he was reminded!!

    Andrews is the best naval gazer in Australia though-tilts at windmills and sends out woke signals. Frydeberger making a calculation error of that magnitude is a massive stuff up. Not as bad as pink batts or handing out cheques left, right and centre, to the deceased and people not residing here. At least the stuff up was not spent.
