Orbs or weird lights

There are lots of orbs or strange lights known.   Some synonyms in English include: (per Wiki)

friars lantern
fairy light
hobby lights
pixie lights

“In modern science, it is generally accepted that most ignis fatuus are caused by the oxidation of phosphine , diphosphane, and methane. These compounds, produced by organic decay, can cause photon emissions. Since phosphine and diphosphane mixtures spontaneously ignite on contact with the oxygen in air, only small quantities of it would be needed to ignite the much more abundant methane to create ephemeral fires.”

There are also the Naga fireballs of the Mekong in Viet Nam: “Glowing balls are alleged to naturally rise from the water high into the air. The balls are said to be reddish and to range in size from smaller sparkles up to the size of basketballs. They quickly rise up to a couple of hundred metres before disappearing. The number of fireballs reported varies between tens and thousands per night.”
