Brown Mountain Lights

Theories swirl around perplexing mountain lights

Ghosts, spirits, swamp gas, gnomes and car headlights — there’s no shortage of hypotheses behind the mysterious phenomenon along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The real question is, though, have you seen the light?

For the curious, the experience starts with a night drive down the parkway to the Thomas Divide Overlook, about two-thirds of the way between Maggie Valley and Cherokee, mile-marker 464 to be exact.

From there what happens is out of your control — some claim flashing your high beams or honking your horn helps, others claim that is the last thing you should do. In the end all you can really do is wait — and that’s when the lights come out.

The phenomenon has caught the eye of a local paranormal author and lead investigator of the Smoky Mountain Ghost Trackers, Micheal Rivers.
