The Brown Mountain Lights are found in the North Carolina foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains on a low ridge known as Brown Mountain. The dancing, glowing spheres of red, blue, yellow, or green light, typically appear on brisk, fall evenings.
In 1587, a colony of 114 men, women, and children became one of the earliest attempts to colonize the new world – America. Traveling from Britain to Roanake Island, on North Carolina’s coast, they were the first true attempt at colonization of the New World. They also became one of the Nation’s first great mysteries.
In 1656, John Davis of Cardinshire, Wales recorded some of the earliest historical evidence of ghost lights. In this small town in Northern Wales, ghost light sightings were quite common and believed to portend the death of someone in their town.
