Both nightly cameras continue to run, but nothing unexpected or unexplained has been seen in the 3 years since they began filming--a major disappointment to the team and supporters of supernormal lights.
My BMLs book is slowly making its way thru the publishing process and now appears to be headed for a late summer or fall publication date. When it finally is published, I'll certainly post the news here.

Both night- time cameras continue to run---a total of more than 1.6 million images over the past 3 years and not a single light that can't be explained with logic and critical thinking! That pretty much sums up our entire research effort to date.
My book manuscript is at the publisher and hopefully will be out by the end of the year.
Alex and I have given several short slide presentations over the past few weeks to civic groups and the Blue Ridge Parkway' Mineral Musuem.

Not much of note happening lately with our BMLs research. The two nightly cameras continue running but no unexplained lights have appeared lately. My book preparation continues but has been delayed by my busy schedule and a computer crash in March---no data was lost as everything was backed up on external drives! I'm now learning Windows 8.1 on a new computer. A publisher has been selected and hopefully the book will be out before the end of the year. I'm now working with the publisher on formatting the numerous images for the book.

The recent cold weather has added a new naturally-occurring light on Brown Mountain!
Snow on the bare rock outcrop that I call Lael's Rock reflects moonlight and creates a bright spot of light on the west side of the mountain. The image below shows the reflected moonlight from the Waxing Gibbous Moon (57%) about 4 hours before Moon set. The previous two weeks of zero or below nightly temperatures probably turned the small stream of water that flows onto Lael's Rock into ice, which was then covered by reflective pure white snow. This patch of snow-covered ice had not yet melted like the snow on the rest of the mountain---leaving an obvious bright white spot on the side of the mountain. Similar snow-covered rock outcrops can also be seen in the foreground of the image.
The Brown Mountain Lights Research Team's BML Cam1 sits atop a house on Jonas Ridge and overlooks Brown Mountain 7 miles to the east. It has been running intermittently since February 2013 and has recorded over 4,000 hours of night-time images.
Who could mistake this light as 'mysterious'? Probably not many people would be fooled, but with the number of people we've seen so far who are unsure of what they see, anything is possible.
