Hi Wayne:

Some of your suggestions have already been carried out.  I have employed a
surveillance camera to watch Mitchell Flat (where Marfa Lights are seen)
since January 2003 and recently added two more surveillance cameras.  Data
collected so far does not include computation of ground tracks, because a
single camera was used, but variability in start and stop headings is
possible.  This data shows considerable scatter in where these orbs
originate and where they extinguish suggesting that the source is probably 
not from underground.  As explained in my book, I have come to suspect that
the source of these orbs is the earth's inner radiation belt.  Spectral
analysis demonstrates that they are plasma and suggests that they may
consist of nitrogen and hydrogen because the emissions bands best match
those elements.  However, no perfect match has yet been found and I consider
spectral data to be preliminary and in need of further

My book, Night Orbs,  does include specific data for about 60 sightings
collected this year (2003) along with findings derived from the collected

I find your approach to this unusual segment of science very refreshing.
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that these lights do in fact exist
and on a world wide basis, where the geological conditions permit.

A valid approach is to gather data in the form of documentation and other
relative information from those who have seen these lights. The information
will be helpful in determining exactly where the lights occur
geographically, how often and when. This would constitute the first step
toward determining the solution of this mystery.

The next step involves a more disciplined and scientific approach.
Researchers must collect data at the location. This would require a lot of
time patience and manpower. Devices such as radar can be used to
triangulate the orbs and determine the altitude and speed with which they
move. The light intensity can be measured as well as the spectrum of emitted
light color analyzed using various types of sensors.Temperature measurements
can also be taken along with many other significant modes of data
collection. This protocol will only serve to gather accurate data for later
research and analysis and will not solve the mystery but will help to
establish a more concrete basis for determining the physical properties of
these dancing balls of light.

Can such a phenomena be duplicated in a laboratory? I feel that we are
dealing with a very simple area of physics that exists at the quantum level.
The cause of the energy may be the result of high frequency electrical
energy released from beneath the earth, capable of producing a semi- stable
cold plasma.What in the earth could produce such a level of reactive energy
as to produce these orbs? A crystalline form of mineral under extreme
pressure beneath the earth could provide the high frequency needed to
transmit this form of cold energy by releasing it into the atmosphere where
it reacts with elements of the surrounding air.

Look at the geography of all areas in which ghost lights are regularly seen.
The gulf coast has enormous salt domes in the ground, Arkansas is very rich
in quartz crystal. Rail road tracks may provide a means of conductance or
capacitance capable of providing a conduit for this level of yet to be
adequately explained energy.

The implication is very serious, light without heat, (or significant heat as
we know it). This form of energy could be used to light homes and anything
else needing high levels of illumination with virtually no power input..

My personal view is that the answer will be found in the area of quantum
physics. Something very simple and easily understood as well as exploited.
That may explain why the scientific community has been reluctant to pursue
the issue. "Almost free" energy may pose a threat.

> Thanks for your inquiry. In my new book, Night Orbs, I name about 34 or
35 potential locations but a more complete list would be in excess of a
hundred. I call these potential sites because many of them may be nothing
more than urban/rural legends or else created by explainable sources. I
discuss three sites that seem similar in nature and have a sufficient number
of creditable reports to be considered definite locations of mystery lights.
Those three locations are Mitchell Flat near Marfa, Texas, Brown Mountain,
NC and Min Min, Australia. I am convinced that all three of these sites do,
from time to time, display light phenomena. In the case of Marfa I know
this for certain and include in my book ample photographic evidence that
cannot be easily dismissed.
> Do all three of these sites have long histories that seem to begin with
native inhabitants? Yes, that is definitely true.
> You do not mention the location that you are referring to. Where is it?
> If you have an interest in this phenomena you will find additional
information and insight in Night Orbs. Initial copies of the book were
distributed in West Texas just before Christmas but national distribution
will take a while longer. Look for it in your local book store within a
couple of months or you may request a copy directly from me.
