A few days following the earthquake in Morocco, a surprising event unfolded. A mysterious flash of light illuminated the Moroccan sky, shortly before another earthquake, measuring 6.8 in magnitude, struck the region.
Local residents captured videos of the light flashing and snapped pictures on their mobile phones, which quickly spread on social media. Many were taken aback by these unusual occurrences, with some speculating that it might be an alien spacecraft.
However, scientists have offered an alternative explanation, suggesting that it could be related to earthquake activity. During earthquakes, the shifting of tectonic plates generates electrical activity. The light observed in the sky may be a result of this phenomenon, distinct from regular lightning.
Lightning typically originates from clouds and strikes the ground, whereas the light associated with earthquakes begins on the ground and ascends into the sky. Physicist Threadman has referred to this as an earthquake warning, as these flashes of light can occur during the energy transitions preceding an earthquake. Similar incidents have been reported in Canada and Italy in the past.
