For years the area around Brown Mountain has been a hotspot for strange orbs and lights in the sky.
Located in North Carolina, the orange-like orbs have been a topic of much debate among scientists and visitors alike for decades. Numerous studies have been conducted in an effort to get to the bottom of the mystery however there has never been a conclusive explanation. Everything from ball lightning and swamp gas to alien spacecraft have been suggested at one point or another.
"The Brown Mountain Lights, which can be seen from several vantage points along the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Brown Mountain Overlook on North Carolina Highway 181, have been explained as a series of orange-like orbs by those who claim to have seen them."
