Last night I woke up to an unexpected night time visitor. It seemed that there flashes of light on the ceiling of the bed room. All kinds of explanations raced through my head, but then after I got completely awake, I realized what it was. No, it wasn't aliens, nor was it ghosts, it was just a lost lightning bug that somehow had entered our home.
The light that lightning bugs produce is a cold light. It contains no infrared nor does it contain any ultraviolet. There are a lot of insects and their larva that have bio-luminescence. And yes, they even glow when they are in the larva stage. Have you ever heard of glow worms?
Of course seeing that lightning bug reminded of my childhood days when my cousins and I would run around our grandparents' yard collecting them in a jar with holes punched in the lid. After watching them for awhile light up the space around the jar, we would release them and let them continue to do what ever they were doing before we disturbed them. Oh, the good old days!!! Now, you all have a great day, you hear.
