The very real – and rare – phenomenon of lights appearing in the sky just before an earthquake strikes has been solved. They are not UFOs. Instead, researchers say the lights likely are the result of crystalline structure of the magmatic stones, which when subjected to intense pressure releases electrical energy.
According to the website designtrend.com, the new findings have been published in the journal Seismological Research Letters. Researchers analyzed 65 documented occurrences of earthquake lights from 1600 to the present, among them the Great San Francisco Earthquake in which people saw streams of light running along the ground two nights preceding that great earthquake.
The study noted an electrical current that flows out of some earthquake fault lines as...
A new catalogue of earthquake lights — mysterious glows sometimes reported before or during seismic shaking — finds that they happen most often in geological rift environments, where the ground is pulling apart. The work is the latest to tackle the enigmatic lights, which have been described by eyewitnesses for centuries but are yet to be fully explained by scientists
