The Naga Fireballs and the Phayanak Festival

The Naga Fireballs - a fabulous phenomenon which takes place yearly - do I understand it or believe it - NO, but what the heck.

During October this can be witnessed - or simply viewed on youtube.

I read that the Naga is a giant hooded snake and it spits glowing fireballs - the Phayanak festival - simply put it is the welcoming of the Lord Buddah as he returns to Eath at the end of Buddhist Lent - simple!

Then Science comes along and explains it all - something to do with flammable phosphine gas.
