quicko: min min

I had never heard of Min Min (the Min Min?) before today, but it was brought to my attention that they are a folklore of sorts in Australia, evidently dating back to an Aboriginal myth of some kind.  (Precise details are a bit scarce ...)  Basically, they're lights that appear and then disappear, especially in the eastern part of Australia.  They're not like the Northern Lights, but, according to Wikipedia, are probably Fata Morgana.
