Hi Wyatt,
Not everyone is cut out for field science but rest assured you don't need a=
 science degree to do it. You just have to be careful and critical and abov=
e all else, you need to communicate with others doing similar work.
These lights are very strange and there is no evidence to indicate what cau=
ses them. For all we know they might not be natural.... so we are involved =
in a search regarding an unresolved phenomenon. I have no idea what causes =
them but simple comments regarding "geological activity" do not satisfy the=
 question. The idea that high pressures in quartz bearing substrata can cre=
ate visual lighting displays is all well and good, but the displays in a la=
b are hundredths of a second in duration. They don't light up and follow tr=
ains around for tens of seconds or even minutes.
I have seen some very strange light phenomena and I would suggest to those =
that think they have all the answers that the variability of the phenomenon=
 begs a much closer examination.

thanks for the info

I checked out the Hassdalen project website. Those
lights are very similar to what can be seen in the
area of northern Alabama I mentioned. There are many
similarities (size, shape, color, etc.). Some move at
very low altitude (I know of two reports where the 6-8
orbs were about 2-3 feet from the ground. A fiend and
I saw one at about 20-25 feet from the ground - it was
directly above the engine of a train -the locomotive
was moving at normal speed and the light suddenly
appeard and followed the train until it was out of

I hope to conduct some field research soon.
