D is for dodging the min min lights - AtoZChallenge 2016

You are probably wondering what on earth are min min lights. These mysterious lights appear in outback Queensland but no one really knows what causes them. They appear out in isolated areas and keep bobbing around. If you try to be near them they keep shifting. Hence they are really dodging you rather than you dodging them. People have reported that they are quite scary when you see them for the first time. Are they space craft loaded with aliens getting ready to land? Are they ghosts of long dead pioneers of the area?  Are they the result of some geological phenomena? Who knows, perhaps you need to go to Boulia and do the Min Min Encounter that has an animated display that runs for 40 minutes that relates a lot of the versions of the sightings. It really is a great show.
