For at least a century, the Brown Mountain Lights have confounded residents and tourists in a rugged patch of Burke County, bobbing and weaving near a modest peak. Are they reflections from automobile headlights? Brush fires? A paranormal phenomenon, or something natural not yet explained by science?

"I didn't feel anything spooky or look around for Martians



What do you think..swamp gas?

Interesting. S&F

Maybe the explanation is very simple:


... Tourism officials are hoping all those decades of unanswered questions add up to a boost in visitors making their way to scenic outlooks ...


I believe it happened - even without pics - but it would be nice to have some pictures to look at. I mean if it's been going on for decades I think there would be some snapshots by now, no ?

I saw a documentary about this on the National Geographic channel. There were two teams that spent the night in the forest. They ended up catching alot of footage and even captured a blue orb and a red orb on a nightvision camera. Since red should never appear on nightvision, they took their footage to the manufacturer of the camera. It could not be explained.

That is interesting about Nat Geo special. I had never heard of this. But wondered if it was related to the OBOL orange ball of light phenomenon I have witnessed and heard about in several states. Most claim those were flares similar to what happened known as the "Phoenix lights". Sounded like the one witnesses were very close to it.

I don't live too far from there, and have been many times. Out of all the times I have went only seen something on one occasion. I seen a small red light appear about half way up the other side of the mountain, it danced around a little bit then shot up and disappeared once it got 100 yards or so above the mountain.

These sound a lot like the Marfa Lights here in Texas that have been seen at least since the 50's:

en.wikipedia.org...

The conventional explanation is that it's a strange atmospheric effect in which campfires or car headlights are reflected in peculiar ways, but that seems like quite a reach considering the way the lights have been described behaving.

The Brown Mountain lights are a fasanating subject i have a gut feeling they are not all so natural. I've never seen this clip before though and now that i have, it just reinforces my opinion that some of these lights are under intelligent control.

Any chance on a link to the full doc? Or the name of it maybe

The documentary was called Paranatural – Mystery Lights. NatGeo’s investigation into the Marfa/Brown Mountain lights.

Here is a link to the video but it is in 5 parts. At the end of part 1 there is a link to goto 2/5.

Had a look at the video I liked the 2 insects flying in front of the camera, downloaded the video slowed it down a little and you can see wings either side of the body





You can even see the wings if you watch on youtube fullscreen

A quick google search had quite a few hits. I did not realize that this topic was such a ongoing one! Some called these "ghostlights". A while back I got a book on Strange events in Indiana. One of the stories concerned a type of lights in the northwestern part of the state that sound somewhat similar to these orbs.

Page Bryant writes a lot about them and lives nearby.

But insects would not register as blue and red on a nightvision camera. They would be white or green.

Is the Brown Mtn. Orbs the same as the lights at Linville Gorge?

I spent a night at Wisemans Gap last fall and will be there again in April. Didn't see any lights the night I was there, the clouds settled in around the mountains and even in the morning it was difficult to see down in the gorge.

I call BS, and a sorry excuse. No one else see's bugs. and if you can really see wings, then wow you must be some sort of super being. how do you explain the red light on the NVG's? You really need to try harder before you debunk something as old, and on going as this.

Orbs are very real. I have seen them close up with my own eyes. I do not know what they are though.....

In the video, don't you kinda see the "lights/orbs" move along the contour of the trees? Almost like someone is shining a direct beam of light at the trees and moving it around?

I know where your coming from there - but ufo orbs do sort of skim the tops of trees when they fly fast. These things are so real, that atmospheric stuff earlier on was funny, hey these things are intelligent and are connected with radiant white motherships
