Scientist on the Ghost lights of Aleya


Scientists have also accepted the existence of Aleya lights. According to scientists, Claim the cause of Aleya light is due to the oxidation of gases like methane, phosphene and diphosphane which are naturally present in the swamps of Sundarban.

These gases in the marshes ionize and give the flickering nightmarish colour that people called Ghost lights. During Ionization process, the electron goes from different electronic states and during the transition it loses the energy in the form of a photon which emits flickering lights that people believe are Ghost lights.
