International Earthlight Alliance


Welcome to the International Earthlight Alliance (IEA)! 

Why join IEA
Supporter Benefits

What causes Earthlights? In fact, nobody knows. Although many theories have been offered, not enough data exist to test the theories. The purpose of the International Earthlight Alliance (IEA) is to carry out research and act as a forum for idea exchanges about the mysterious Earthlights. Only supporters can participate in this idea exchange.

IEA proposes a new way to conduct research. In order to solve the Earthlight mystery, IEA encourages public interest and involvement of students in scientific education and research. IEA educates by publishing scientific papers written by its own scientists as well as other scientists. Everyone can watch and enjoy the ongoing discovery process. But, only supporters can participate with IEA scientists, other supporters, and students collaborating to unravel the threads that may lead to solving the Earthlight mystery.

Joining IEA is like becoming part of a real-life mystery novel. You will be able to see updates and progress on this website as new data are acquired and discoveries are made. IEA scientists go on missions to investigate reports of Earthlights throughout the world. (IEA scientists have already gone on missions to investigate lights at exotic places such as Hessdalen Norway, Marfa Texas, Southern Arizona, Yakima WA, Mexico, and Australia). Sometimes pictures will be sent to the web in real-time when IEA scientists are on a mission. After the mission, IEA publishes more detailed reports of these exciting, and colorful, investigations on the web. You will be notified by email when these reports are posted so that your are the first to see them before the public is aware of them. You can be an “armchair scientist” merely watching, or can you can participate by sending comments and ideas.

Your contributions enable important IEA Earthlight research, education, and missions. You will help attract interest to science and solve a long-standing scientific mystery. Solving the mystery could potentially lead to a new way to produce energy and/or light. It will add to knowledge about geophysics and understanding of Nature. It will increase awareness of our precious environment.
