I found that in Peru and neighboring countries, a belief in UFOs and ET is the norm. Having long been a part of their cultures, this is not lost on modern times, as are many tradtional beliefs. Edit again: Of course these are also geologically active areas. When I was in Lima we had quakes every day; which was really cool on the sixth floor. The locals told me that one only needs worry when the shaking stops; ie. lots of little quakes are good. The point is of course that this suggests the potential for earthquake lights, earth lights and the like, whatever those are.
