"Gravity Waves", Western Australian skies ....
« on: October 24, 2019, 11:26:11 am »
On our News TV this evening, they were talking about a Visual Phenomena in the sky,
that they say is attributed to 'Gravity Waves' . . . .  :phew:
I have my own opinions about how/why/what 'gravity' could be explained, however
I'm not convinced, (yet), whether the following explains things well enough !?   :-//

Yes, these are Gravity waves (waves created due to interaction between gravity and buoyancy) and not Gravitational waves (disturbances in space-time caused by colliding black holes)
