I was lucky enough to have seen the lights at about 6:45 in the morning when headed to work one morning. I lived on the opposite side of Brown Mountain from where the lights are usually reported. The sun was already on the mountain but the light was much brighter and more brilliant than the sun's light. Most locals don't ever get to see it, so I feel very privileged to have witnessed these legendary lights.

We saw the lights although not on the first night we looked. I live two counties away from Burke county, where the lights occur. We traveled to Burke to visit family and a group of us went up to the Brown Mountain Overlook which is the best place to view the lights. They are best seen between 10 PM and 2 AM. Our first attempt at viewing them was unsuccessful and we saw nothing. The second night, we went around 12 AM and saw quite a display of the lights. They can be rare and weather conditions are a large factor in the viewability of the lights but they do happen moderately often.

“Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate,
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I, Shall take the hidden paths that run,
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.”

Why the hell hasn't anyone filmed this through a high-powered telescope?

Or maybe they have and I just haven't seen it yet.

Coincidentally, that's how the mountain got its' name.

Edit: Note how his facial expression changes.
