Information about a curious luminescent phenomenon that likely occurred late last night when the M7 quake struck Miyagi prefecture. It also may have been due to an electrical arc discharging when the power lines snapped. Not yet confirmed if the true source has been found.
Known as Earthquake Lights. They have a white-bluish hue and usually last for several seconds. They have been documented many times in the past and while there are several theories that attempt to explain the lights, but the mechanism is still unknown.
