It wouldn't surprise me if this were found to be the case.... I'm more inclined to think that this is a broader system between earth and atmosphere. I'm intrigued by the idea that large earthquakes affect the ionosphere, for example. ...
I’m pretty sure William Corliss collected some information as part of his Sourcebook Project?The idea of quartz in the rock creating piezoelectrical light effects is not that strong. I'm open to entertaining the idea that effects can be propagated if the fabric of the bedrock created some crystal orientation but there are too many other factors that will cancel out any charges produced. They won't make it to the surface let alone propagate through the air. I'm more inclined to think that this is a broader system between earth and atmosphere. I'm intrigued by the idea that large earthquakes affect the ionosphere, for example. We simply aren't looking in the right places because of expensive technology, scope, etc. See my stuff on earthquake lights at Spooky Geology.
I've had Brown Mountain on my list of places to go for a long time. I've also been collecting all the resources on earth lights I can find. There is not that much content. My goal is to synthesize it all into something useful. EG - if you have any suggestions on content, I'd like to hear them. I've got most of the readily available lit already. What complicates the matter is evident in the title of this thread - sighting of balls of light are considered UFOs, which makes good info more difficult to tease out from the chaotic cultural content.
There are several incidents documented in the Corliss catalogs (I have them all for geology and atmospheric anomalies) but he didn't expound on the causes too much, just says they are probably a natural thing we haven't figured out yet. The piezoelectric idea is easy to demonstrate (just knock or rub two pieces of quartz together in the dark) and ubiquitous. But it's not the right answer (or the entire answer, at least). If you get into the concepts on earthquake lights, there are discussions about why this isn't so feasible as a mechanism.I’m pretty sure William Corliss collected some information as part of his Sourcebook Project?
Yes a murmuration is what I thought from the still picture and I've seen loads, some spectacular. But after seeing the actual video, murmurations never stay in the same shape like that - It's impossible! It may be some kind of debris thoughMight this be comparable?
My first thought was the Jupiter-Saturn alignment thing, but I don't think it would be that bright through the clouds... would it?Posted about an hour ago on facebook:

Possibly an odd question- did anyone else see these lights above Scole this afternoon (Roughly 2:30pm)? They were 2 large round lights just hovering stationary for about 3 or 4 minutes, and then they just disappeared.
Far too big to be a plane, no engine or propellor noises
wow, that's a fascinating account.Got a bit of time on my hands, so thought it might be a good time to send in this account of my last encounter - to date, with something pretty weird...
This took place quite a few years ago, not long after I found myself on my own after my Dad died, and I didn't have a job at that point either. So, needless to say I was not in a good place but I coped with it.
To keep myself from boredom, and feeling's of things being generally pretty hopeless, I used to go out for walks at night, usually around 11'ish. This particular night I followed a route that I would usually take as I knew how long it would take before I would get back home.
The road I took was along the edge of a deep (local) valley, with a stream running along it's length and a couple of smallish lakes. As I approached the brow of the hill where the road dipped down towards a pub (at the bottom of the hill), I looked to my right as something caught my eye.
As I focused on the 'object,' it became suddenly clear that this was a brightly lit orange sphere with something in the middle of it which I can't remember well at all.
I thought I'd glanced at the object, then passed it by, to look back to see if it was still there. When in fact I'd looked at it, somehow lost an amount of time, and found myself waking on down the road some time after - looking back to see if it was still there, and it was not visible any more, so I continued on my way home wondering what the heck had just taken place.
The following day, I felt the need to go back a little earlier which I did. On the way, I happened to bump into the proprietor in the pub - he was outside sweeping up the general area. So I stopped as I passed him by, and asked him if anyone had seen or heard anything unusual the last few nights (without saying too much about my experience the night before) , and he replied "Oh that's funny you should ask, as a couple of our guests had mentioned that they'd seen some strange coloured lights down in the valley two nights ago and they remarked on it being 'odd!'
I believe I had lost a small amount of time as I'd looked at this object as for-the-life-of-me, I couldn't fathom out why I had seen it, then ignored it (as I'd thought), and came to my senses some way down the road towards the pub just five minutes away ~ that's not what I would normally have done, normally I would have studied it and stayed there until it had vanished or moved off, instead I somehow appeared to have continued on my way for a short time, then came back to realisation when I looked back to see if it was still there... really strange behaviour on my part for me to have done that!
Some weeks later, a woman I know who lives along that road and sometimes bump into on occasion when she's out in here garden, explained that she'd been driving up from the bottom of our valley, and seen seven orange orbs moving across the valley some time before.
In the exact same area, one night quite a while ago, I reported a strange plane slowly flying across the valley in thick fog and it was obviously flying below the radar as it was so low to the ground. This is something like what the 'plane' looked like... I could also just hear what sounded like extremely quite Rolls Royce engines as it passed overhead. The plane had a very large and powerful lamp mounted on the front of it, and it appeared to be using this to fly so low over the valleys.

I sent in a report to the Ministries HQ, and in reply they stated that they had no radar information of any plane flying over on that particular night!
There's a number of videos on YouTube embedded in news reports and the like, do a search for:Unfortunately the article does not have video of it going into the ocean, though the news article mentions there are videos of that.
"An unidentified flying object spotted in the evening sky over Leeward Oahu prompted witnesses to call 911 on Tuesday.
The sighting happened about 8:30 p.m.
There are multiple videos of what appears to be a glowing‚ oblong mass — both in the sky and in the water.
Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration say there were no aircraft incidents or accidents in this area at the time. But multiple witnesses reported seeing a large blue object fall out of the sky and into the ocean."
