EARTH LIGHTS

THROUGHOUT HISTORY, PEOPLE have noted strange lighting phenomena emanating from remote areas of natural land. ‘Will-o’-the-wisps’ are well known occurrences featuring small flames that spark from marsh and woodland. Ball lightning is a curious form of meteorological phenomenon where air pressure causes an electrical charge in the form of a ball. But the most fascinating natural lights are even more bizarre. People across the world have reported seeing strange orbs of light that seem to ignore the standard laws of physics – explanations for their appearance are anything but definite. Present theories range from alien spacecraft to pan-dimensional energy. All we do know is that they seem to appear from the ground, and so they have been termed Earth Lights.

These odd glowing visions have been witnessed radiating all manner of colours, from bright white, to blue, red or even black. They can be as small as a tennis ball, or as large as a car, and although they are normally spherical, witnesses have seen Earth Lights of many designs. Accounts of glowing tadpole shapes are particularly common. People who have managed to view them close-up report odd internal reactions, and bizarre crackling noises. The lights move in erratic directions, and can split into formations of multiple floating orbs. They seem to have a strong connection to geological and geographical features, and linger around lakes, mountains and rocky ridges.

One of the most impressive series of sightings happened in Hessdalen, Norway, in the early 1980s. People living in the area began to see strange lights emerging from the valley in November 1981. The glowing designs ranged from bullet shapes to triangles, and were commonly white and yellow in colour. The level of reports reached such a pitch that two airforce officers were sent by the Norwegian government to examine the occurrences. By the start of 1984, Swedish and Norwegian UFO enthusiasts had begun Project Hessdalen, a month long scientific study of the valley. This yielded some readings of Earth Light properties and also managed to capture examples of the Earth Light phenomenon on film.

Although the 1960s saw the creation of theories that connected these unexplained light displays with earthquakes and fault lines, in-depth study of the subject had always been overshadowed by alien and UFO interest. However, unlike UFOs, the verifiable scientific relationship between these lights and the earth has allowed the phenomenon to be quietly, but seriously, studied. The leading name in this field is Paul Devereux, the man who actually coined the term ‘Earth Lights’. Devereux has travelled the world studying versions of the phenomenon, separating fake or mistaken incidents from genuine Earth Lights. His conclusion is that they are an honest and real phenomenon.

Devereux, along with much of the interested scientific community, believes the lights may be connected with the strains and conflicting energy found in the Earth’s crust. Just as heavy pressure in the atmosphere causes storms and lightning, so too pressure under the surface causes equally impressive reactions. As the tectonic plates rise and fall, it is suggested that energy is released through particular areas of weakness such as fault lines, or areas of high mineral or rock density. It has been discovered that many historical accounts of strange lights appeared on recently discovered fault lines, or just before earthquakes developed.

Different theories suggest the lights could be alien landing craft; some alien abduction victims have reported seeing similar glowing features. Other people believe they have amazing paranormal qualities, and link our world with another dimension. Some witnesses claim to have heard ghostly voices and seen apparitions after an Earth Light display. In both these cases the effect of magnetic variation on brain patterns has been cited as having an influence. Many experts believe the extreme magnetic upheaval caused by conflicting tectonic forces needed in Earth Light creation may cause the brain to suffer hallucinations.

The effect on witnesses, although not dangerous, can be striking. One of the most common areas for Earth Light incidents in Britain is the Longendale Valley in the Peak District. Sean Wood is a local resident who has seen the lights over thirty times in sixteen years. As a catalogue of his sightings he now produces paintings of the local landscapes. In all his pictures, in the corner of a field or the side of a valley, there lurks the image of a small glowing orb. For him, the phenomenon of Earth Lights is an unexplainable, but acceptable, natural occurrence.

I saw one of those lights in West Cork, Ireland. I was standing in the doorway of my house on a really nice day smoking a cigarette when I noticed an illuminated ball, about 3 times the size of an orange about 10ft above the ground in the air off to my left coming from a field next to the house. It was bright white/yellow/silver changing colour like it was reflecting pastel lights. It went past me horizontally and I noticed that it actually had pinkish/ blue colours also like a ball of light/electricity but, I really don't think it was electricity because it travelled horizontally for about 10 metres and then completely changed direction and darted off into the sky. How could an electric ball travel horizontally and then completely change direction? I got the impression that it darted off when it realized I'd seen it. It was travelling much slower when it was moving horizontally and it sped up when it changed direction. Everyone thought I was seeing things and I was so relieved when 2 weeks later my neighbour witnessed one also nearby. Where the house is located is an extremely remote part of Ireland and funnily enough, as the article mentioned, it is at the base of a mountain, in a little valley. It was coming from the direction of the valley. It's an experience I will never forget because it's one thing to hear about something but to see it with your own eyes is incredible. I had never even heard of this phenomenon before-hand. I looked it up on the web a few years ago and that's the first time I heard about the "balls of electricity". I have often wondered was it a flying saucer with tiny aliens inside of it who are studying us. Why do we assume aliens are the same size as ourselves after all? They could surely also be the size of insects? The ball that I saw really appeared to be some type of craft especially the fact that it was moving horizontally and then changed direction into a 45% ascent into the sky at incredible speed. The light inside of it was also totally contained within the ball shape which appeared to have a type of thick rim around the middle, so it was spherical but with a thicker bit in the middle. It's very difficult to try to explain... anyway, these balls do exist and I think the electricity explanation is totally inadequate in explaining it's ability to completely change direction and speed as it moves. The other thing is that the day I saw it there wasn't even a breeze, the sun was shining and there were clear blue skys, not the type of weather that you'd imagine electricity or lightning of any sort to just appear.
