I talk about earthquake lights in Not by Fire but by Ice … and here they are.(See chapter 8, “Earthquake lights and Crazy Snakes.”)
Fox News reported that the quake, the strongest in a century, was accompanied by flashes of green and blue lights shooting throughout the night sky. According to an El Universal story, the lights are a naturally occurring electro-magnetic charge caused by the collapse of the rocks in the ground during the earthquake.
Uh huh. I mentioned that theory in Not by Fire but by Ice. I called it “rocks that go bump in the night.
But as I said,
“I think they’ve got it backwards. Saying that earthquakes cause electromagnetic disturbances is like saying that waterwheels make rivers flow. Electromagnetic forces cause earthquakes, not the other way around.”
