Asheville, Oct. 26. The mysterious
light on Brown mountain in Burke
county, which has puzzled scientists
for several years, leading to many and
varied theories as to its origin, is a
mystery no longer, if the explanation
contained in the current publicMion of
the American Meteorological Society 1
uuueun nas tne correct solution.
"Andean lightning" is the name of
this phenomenon, according to Her
bert Lyman, writing ifi the bulletin.
"Andean lightning," says the report,
"is the name given to a very striking
luminous discharge of electricity seen
over the crest of the Andes in Ohii..
in a region where ordinarily thunder-
storms are almost unknown. The
mountains appear to act as erifranu:
ngntning rods, Between which and the
clouds silent discharges take place on
a vast scale. Because more frequently
seen in the Andes than elsewhere the
term "Andesan lightning" has been

cording to Dr. AValter Knoche, for a
number of years director of the weath
er service of Chile, these great silent
brush discharges of electricity exterd
from the crest of the Cordilleras far
out to sea. They almost always appear
in a clear sky upon the approach of
nightfall. As regards seasons, the
phenomenon begins in the late Spring
and is last seen in the Fall. The fre
quency of discharge, says Dr. Knoche,
seems in general to decrease with in.
crease in distance from the equator.
"In the discussion the occurrence of
such mountain brush discharges hi
the White mountains was mentioned."
