On the edge of the Tanami Desert, 550 kilometers (340 mi) away from the nearest “big” town of Katherine, sits the small town of Lajamanu, Northern Territory. It is not really a fishing destination.
Lajamanu has been the recipient of falling sky-fish at least three times in modern history—in 1974, 2004, and 2010. The fish that fell were small and alive—tough little creatures that must have been in the air for hundreds of hours. The closest significant bodies of water to Lajamanu are Lake Argyle and Lake Elliot, which are both a long distance away. Even the nearest river is over 480 kilometers (300 mi) away.
The locals were quite pleased with the falling spangled perch. They went “fishing” by picking up the perch from the local football oval.
As expected, I got this article from Listverse, where you can find more stories of falling fish. Interesting topic, don't you think?
Coffee inside this morning. Rain may be coming back.
