I have previously covered the fascinating topic of the peculiar lights known as the “Spooklights of Cloverdale, Alabama.” These mysterious glowing orbs have captivated the attention of countless individuals residing in this quaint northern Alabama town for over a century. Wyatt Cox, a native of the area, has dedicated years of scientific research to study these lights and has even authored a book on the subject. In a recent conversation with Wyatt, he expressed his optimistic outlook on unraveling the enigma behind what he now refers to as the “earthlights” of Cloverdale.
The mysterious glowing orbs observed in Cloverdale bear a resemblance to the enigmatic spooklights that manifest repeatedly in various locations around the world. The Brown Mountain Lights are also comparable to these unexplained orbs, often referred to as atmospheric ghost lights. In Cloverdale, these lights manifest without any discernible source, exhibiting hues of orange, yellowish, and sometimes even blue. They appear at random intervals, occasionally hovering as high as nearby treetops or descending to ground level. Wyatt Cox, who has encountered and captured photographs of these orbs on numerous occasions over the years, has dedicated decades to scientific studies and extensive research on these fascinating phenomena.
Wyatt Cox, a native of the Florence area, became enamored with the lights when he first encountered them as a teenager. Even though he moved away years ago, he continues to make regular visits to study the phenomenon. “Myself and some other investigators meet and go to the active areas maybe three times a year,” Wyatt shared. His upcoming plans involve another sighting and investigation. Wyatt has documented his extensive research in his book, “Spooklights, The Amazing Cloverdale, Alabama Spooklight Mystery.”
“I hope to capture some spectral photos of the lights during my next visit and have them analyzed by a scientist in Norway,” Cox expresses his anticipation. He further adds, “Through this analysis, we aim to gather valuable information about the gases enclosed within the plasma ball, the internal temperature, and the level of electrical energy present.”
Wyatt Cox now refers to the mysterious lights as “earthlights” instead of the traditional term “spooklights.” This change in terminology reflects his belief that these lights are not paranormal in nature but rather a result of some unknown form of energy. According to Cox, the lights can be best described as a type of plasma. While local legends often attribute these lights to supernatural phenomena, Wyatt is confident that he is on the verge of demonstrating that they are, in fact, a physical and naturally occurring event that has yet to be fully understood.
