This phenomenon is also known as “Mekong lights” or “bung fai paya nak”. Mekong is the world’s 10th-longest river. Naga’s Fireballs can be seen between Thailand and Laos every October. They appear only in full moon. In Thailand mythology Naga is a gigantic hooded snake.
Fireballs are observed in some 250 kilometres long sector of Mekong: approximately from Ban Muang upstreams from Vientiane down to Bung Kan. Most of them rise from the 500 - 800 m wide Mekong River, but they have been observed rising from smaller ponds and rivers as well. These places might sound exotic and remote to Europeans but they are densely populated, filled with houses, roads, schools and other usual features of civilisation.
The Naga fireballs (Thai: บั้งไฟพญานาค; RTGS: bang fai phaya nak), also referred to as Mekong lights, are a phenomenon seen in the Mekong river—in Thailand (Nong Khai province in Isan) and in Laos (Vientiane Province)—in which glowing balls rise from the water high into the air. The balls are reddish and have diverse size from smaller sparkles up to the size of basketballs; they quickly rise up to a couple of hundred metres before disappearing. The number of fireballs reported varies between tens and thousands per night.

If this is real, and I have no reason to doubt it is, then this is very intriguing indeed.
I would of just thought it was some kind of methane gas or something and igniting. But the fact that they only appear on the full moon in October sort of rules that out, natural gas would release at any time
Very very strange
