I took this picture of my son and his friend hanging out at the campfire, but what I did NOT see was the strange blue light that appears to be flying toward my son!
There is nothing in that area that would cause a reflection and I was not using a flash. I never saw the light and neither did the two boys. When I got back home and uploaded the pictures to my computer was the first time I saw it. It is the source of it's own light as you can see by the glow around it. Very strange, but we have witnessed strange lights before. In 1986, my friend and I were on spring break at a lake in Texas and we saw a strange green glowing ball fall from the sky, but just before it hit the water, it changed direction and shot across the lake. We probably set a world record for sprinting up the stairs back to the house. The hardest part was everyone we told just did not believe us. We are not alone, green lights known as "Green Fireballs" have been spotted in the sky since the 1940's. Most of the sightings have occurred in the southwestern United States and we were in Texas when we saw our little green fireball. Just outside the city of Marfa, Texas is an area that have had little balls of lights dancing around for as long as anyone there can remember. National Geographic studied the lights and could not explain them. The city is having a Lights festival this year on Labor Day weekend, August 31st - September 2, 2018. Sounds like a fun trip for anyone interested in the strange and unexplained! The light I captured in this photo is not a glowing ball, but looks like a blue angel, bird or fairy. Legends from Mexico claim that if you see lights like this at night, it means something is buried in the ground there. We are not busting our shovels out just yet. What do you think it is?
