Eco-Tourists Flocking to 2 Appalachian Forests being Lite-Up by Rare Fireflies
This is nature at its most impressive and beautiful.  Swarms of rare fireflies that illuminate at the same moment and stay bright for ten seconds lighting up a remote forest area..  They go dark for a minute and then light up the forest again.  This is such a magnificent phenomena of natural synchronization, it is attracting crowds of tourists who care about the environment.   They are flocking to two remote forests in the Appalachian Mountains in Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

Summer Light Shows
Fireflies that light up and are in sync are extremely rare.  Globally, they are found in the US Allegheny and Smokey Mountains in PA, and TN, also in remote parts of South Carolina and Arizona and in Southeast Asia.  As so much innovation comes from nature, you have to wonder what this magnificent light show display from rare fireflies that live for just a few weeks, will inspire from human innovators.
