Earth Phenomenon: Spooklights Theory
Spooklights or “Earth lights” are seen all over the world in different reported locations. They’re reported usually as balls of light floating, sometimes moving, sometimes colored, sometimes white. Even with all these variations possible, they’re recognized by locals as spooklights. These were often times worked in Native American legends, long before car headlights and streetlights. Probably the most famous ones in America are the Brown Mountain Lights in North Carolina and the Marfa Lights in Texas. There are so many locations in the US for these interesting lights that you might check out this site that lists their locations around the US.
There are a lot of theories about these lights from a ghost’s lantern to ghosts trying to form to alien visitations to swamp gas. I am more of a mind to believe it’s an Earth phenomenon.
Consider these Earth phenomena we consider to be perfectly natural, but are actually quite powerful and unusual:
The mass of Earth keeps the moon in orbit around it
Hurricanes and Typhoons
Jets and sprites
Those beautiful and powerful things produced by the Earth are just the more cinematic displays, but in more subtle forms the earth does things all the way down to the microbial level that are interdependent and resulting in life. The evolution of life on the planet itself is an amazingly intricate dance of actions and reactions.
The dynamics of our planet includes things at the levels of geomagnetic, electrical, biologic, photosynthetic, molecular, hydroelectric, seismic, volcanic, geologic, and more. We all admit that these things are influenced by conditions, such as man heating up the planet and creating nastier hurricanes, droughts, and melting snow caps. They’re also influenced by tectonics, the pull of the moon, and flooding.
Given all these dynamics is it possible to that the Earth (a planet which can produce lightning strikes at 130,000 mph and 54,000 degrees Fahrenheit), can certainly create lesser but still impressive phenomenon?
In other words, if it can spit out lightning and start fires with it, couldn’t it create glowing spooklights reported in many locations around the world?
