Today your hosts uncover the truth about one of North Carolina’s most enduring mysteries: The Brown Mountain Lights.
Floating multi-colored orbs or flashes of light have been witnessed around Brown Mountain for decades. Some say it’s the lanterns of Native American ghost women searching for their murdered husbands. Others claim it’s a hot-spot for UFO activity, possibly due to the secret underground facility housed beneath the mountain. Still others think the phenomenon can be attributed to interdimensional Bigfeet.
But don’t worry, your insightful hosts get to the bottom of it all in this episode.
