Hi everyone I am new to this forum and would like to ask some advice if I may.

I own an old two story railway station and for the past 6 months or so, my 16 year old son has been sleeping in the old bar/refreshments room while we have been renovating the rooms upstairs.
Although there is no electricity connected in this room yet, my son has told me he often sees a glowing light at night, in the upper right hand corner of his room. He said that a couple of
friends had also seen the light. I kind of brushed him off, thinking it was probably some glow paint or perhaps it was coming from outside through the window. However tonight I went into his room to speak to
him about something and while we were talking I noticed a glowing light in the same spot he told me about. Although the room was quite dark, the curtain was open so I said
it was probably from that and closed it to see if it went away. But it didn't. I sat there for a good 10 minutes watching this light turn from orange to green to white and a couple of times it shimmered like glitter.
It also seemed to be hovering there as if in mid air but when I turned the torch on I couldn't see it at all, nor could I find anything that would explain what was causing it. We decided to leave the room for a while
and go back in to see if anything had changed. When we did this the light was still there but it was no longer as bright, didn't change colours or glitter like it did previously. I guess my question is, what could
this have been and is it anything to worry about?

Hello and welcome.

we had the same thing but the light was yellow and it appeared to be some luminating bugs.
U know some bugs luminate at night.

Also it may be chemical reaction if the place abandoned there might be some leak that would cause such thing to happen.

maybe there is a crack and a light from an outside source would be visible.

examine the spot and let us know

Hi thanks for your response :)

I tend to agree there is probably some other explanation for the light and after looking around the room today I noticed there was a fine crack in the wall.
However on the other side of the wall is the kitchen and that doesn't have any cracks in it at all because we have repaired and repainted it. Also above the kitchen and my sons
bedroom is the second story. None of the wiring has been connected yet so I can't explain how light could be getting in from anywhere else and out through the crack.

The only other thing I can think it could be coming from is one of the air vents. There are four in his room, two on the wall where the light appears and two on the opposite wall
directly above the window. Although I couldn't see any light streaming through them last night, today I did notice one of the vents throws sunlight into the area
of the wall where the light appears. I am going to cover them over today and see if that makes a difference. I will report back the results later.

Hi there, the colour of the lights is reminiscent of the Hessdalen lights and indicates to me that it is something to be concerned about. The best thing is to treat it with respect. It has the potential to cause some harm if it feels threatened. I believe it to be a kind of bird which uses bioluminescence. As to a way of encouraging it to find another roost, I not so sure. Just be wary is all I can advise for now. Best wishes and let us know of any developments.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

More glowbird nonsense...

How is the bird getting inside and why is there no bird droppings?

Hi again

Ok so it's 10.30pm and my partner and I have just been in our son's room to investigate.
The room was pitch black and we could both see a glow in the same spot as last night but it wasn't as bright this time.
My partner went outside and shone a torch through the air vent that we thought might have been a cause.
It did come through but didn't reach the other side of the room. We then covered the air vent in case the angle of the torch
was wrong, but the glow was still there. I then had my partner go into the kitchen area behind the bedroom wall and shine a torch into the air vents
which are on the same wall as the glow. Again light did enter the room but it failed to reflect itself anywhere near the area in question.  

So this rules out all air vents as a possible cause. We then thought that if it was a chemical of some sort that
glowed in the dark, shining a spotlight onto it should make it brighter and easier to see.
But after doing this for some time there was no difference and it still wasn't as bright nor did it change colours or sparkle like it
did the night before.

However to rule chemicals completely out we are going to cover the area with a large piece of paper tomorrow and see if still glows.
If it does then I am at a loss to reasonably explain it's cause and will need to look at other avenues.

I will report back tomorrow.

Unless you can post photos/videos, this is nothing more than a trolling thread.

Hi Rafterman I was planning on trying to capture this on film after ruling out all reasonable explanations as to its cause.

Thanks for the detailed description.

I was reading about luminus bacteria and fungs
and how they can be evolved into capturing light and re emit it in a blue-greenish hue.

If u can clean that spot with a strong bleach they may go away.

Please if you can examin the spot for any of such organisms and clean it if you can

Don't forget to update us.

Thank you

Hi Vanquisher

I think that is a good idea. Mind you, our walls are 15ft tall so
it isn't going to be easy balancing up there on a ladder with a bucket and scrubbing brush lol.

Hopefully I will have some free time to do this tomorrow as I didn't get a chance to do anything with it today.

be careful in doing that, falling from 15ft is no joke.

i suggest hiring a handy man to do the job.

best of luck

It will be interesting to see some pics or video clips if you can get them. It's quite hard for me to offer an idea on what it could be without seeing it. Light can do some crazy things! Good luck getting to the cause of it.

Through the open air vents of course. The bird has learnt not to poo on it's own doorstep, both physically and metaphorically. It's adept at staying undetected. It's hard to imagine it would remain in the same place whilst it's avenues of escape were boarded up though. If so, we might have the first evidence of a new species if the corpse is recovered after it's eventual demise.
