Being from Montana, and doing most of my traveling in the northwest, I had never seen fireflies in real life until I visited the south.

We recently took Lily to Space Academy in Huntsville, Alabama and we got to see the magic of fireflies! Or lightening bugs, as they are also known. Naturally, we were fascinated, so I went to the edge of a forest to take a quick video for you, it looks pitch dark, until you watch and see the little buggers doing their thing and lighting up the night.

Some of our radio friends in Jersey say that the locals feel like fireflies are slowly disappearing, as they aren't seeing nearly as many as they used to. We couldn't tell the difference down south, as we'd never seen them before, but it sure was cool to experience.
