Mysterious Lights Seen Over Japan Following The Latest Quake

Many even believe the Japanese had a visitation by UFOs. At one point, even a Helicopter was mistaken to be a UFO, so the mystery remains.

Japan was hit by yet another earthquake a few days ago although the level of danger arising from this quake was not all that significant.  But what has attracted media attention regarding this latest quake was some mundane and ominous light that happened in the skies of  Japan concurrently with the April 8th earthquake.    It was a bright blue light that could not easily be accounted for, however, scientists have come up with a cocktail of theories about the light.

1.      Mysterious Earthquake Light

Many have since put forward the view that the light was an earthquake light which normally appears in the skies during seismic activity. Earthquake lights result from a buildup of stress in the earth’s core just moments before the actual earth quake. This stress is then released and it is manifested as an electromagnetic excitation of the upper atmosphere which resembles the Northern Lights. This view unfortunately has not been proven scientifically, but there are documented reports to the effect that similar lights were seen in 1975 earthquakes of Kalapana, the L’Aquilla quake of 2009 and the Chile earthquake of 2010

The mysteries around these lights however, continue to deepen because many high magnitude earthquakes have happened around the world but some of them did not happen along with these strange lights. Moreover, there are satellites everywhere in space which have routinely recorded thunderstorms and lightening that happen around the world, but for the case of this mysterious Japan Earthquake light, it was never captured by the satellites and this leaves a lot of questions on the minds of scientists.

2.      Piezoelectricity

Other scientists now say there is a possibility that  when the tectonic plates over which Japan lies rubbed against each other, they created intense electric fields called piezoelectricity as a result of quartz and this normally manifest in the form of bright flashes of lights.

3.      Radon Lights

The other possibility is that the lights could have been a precursor to the April 8 earthquake because it is believed that before a quake happens, the ground exhales radon which creates strong unusual lights in the atmosphere, so the Japan case could have been this possibility. Generally however, scientists are non committal as to what exactly caused the lights over Japan two days ago.

4.      UFO

The stories of UFO visitations are becoming very common lately. In fact, there are reports that before the Tsunami and the devastating earthquake of last month, there a lot of unsubstantiated reports that UFOs had been sighted over Tokyo. At one point, even a Helicopter was mistaken to be a UFO, so the mystery remains, but the question being asked is; where did this light come from? Was this a UFO?

    Maybe the aliens have come to see what all the fuss is about, but most probably it is a Earthquake lights. Thanks for sharing

    there may be a such thing as aliens, but that is probably a helicopter or road flare. people are just trying to find something supernatural to blame these accidents for in the current state of paranoia.
