    What's going on in Kalgoorlie?!

      The hotspot looks too far north to be Kalgoorlie.
      It seems to be in the vicinity of the little sandy desert.

      Probably miners/whatever. They have nothing to do in downtime, and crypto is highly popular amongst them.

      Maybe thats one of the places that they are doing some of the bitcoin mining that i keep hearing about
