Strange radar formation off the coast of Australia remains unsolved

This is one for the strange and weird fact file:

A strange S-shaped formation which appeared on weather bureau radar off the West Australian coast was not caused by cloud, the bureau says. The shape was spotted on the weather bureau's radar map on Wednesday about 30 kilometres west of Rottnest. 
 After checking the satellite, the bureau's Neil Bennett ruled out the phenomenon being caused by cloud. "There's no cloud, there's nothing to produce a rain echo, ... which we do see a lot, but not this particular shape," he said. "They don't take on S shapes and things like that. 
 "The radar that we use are there for the detection of precipitation, it's basically just a beam going out and hitting the rain droplets or ice particles from hail. 
 "Sometimes the beam itself rather than going straight it gets bent back to earth and you start to pick up reflections from the ocean, rather than rain droplets." The ABC has asked the Department of Defence whether there are military operations off the coast which may interfere with radar activity. The department is yet to comment.

Hasn't this phenomenon been experienced some 4-5 years ago in about the same place in Australia?

If I remember correctly,the last time this happened in about the same place,the shape was a HUGE round wheel of sorts! and at that time,even THEN! the weather bureau people were lost,as to what it could be..I think there were TWO Phenomena, at that time!?

There was talk about, what "HAARP" might be up to.Only this time the shape is a letter "S"
As allot of us,are aware! "HAARP" can manipulate the weather! So perhaps, here we go again with something in the pipe line...

REMEMBERING! This is a "WEATHER BUREAU RADAR" Phenomenon, not something seen with one's own eyes, as such!...........................
