The above list was found at Obiwan's UFO-Free Paranormal Page

Here are a few locations outside of North America that I found.

The Min-Min Lights-Boulia, Queensland, Australia
Longendale Lights-Longdale Valley, Derbyshire, UK
Hessdalen Valley Lights-RĂ˜ROS, NORWAY
Dovedale Light-River Dove, Dovedale, UK

After looking into each of the stories behind these mysterious lights, I found a lot of railroad workers who lost their heads here. Are some of these unexplainable? Yes. Could some have an origin that is paranormal? Yes. However, I feel that in a number of these cases it is nothing more than atmospheric conditions causing the phenomenon.
