Each October, on the night of a full moon, a great festival attracts many thousands of spectators to a small stretch of land on the bank of the Mekong River in Nong Khai province, on the border of Thailand and Laos. Mysterious glowing balls rise out of the water, rising high above the river before dissappearing. It seems to have been going on for centuries but is now a famous annual event in Southeast Asia.
Glowing objects flying above rivers brings up a question: Could they be related to the nocturnal pterosaur-like creatures that glow as they fly in Papua New Guinea? The ropen of Umboi Island and the kor around Manus Island do glow over water.
We need more information on these mysterious Naga lights that emerge from the Mekong River. Have you seen this yourself? If so, please post a comment here. Thank you.
