Fireflies in a synchronized light show!

Synchronous fireflies have facinated me ever since I heard of the creatures, and I've entered the lottery to attempt to see the ones in Kentucky without any luck. The Smoky Mountains fireflies are available to see in just a couple of weekends to the lucky few who win the lottery at the park to get spots for a front row show, but I didn't even think about other places you can see them light up!

In Nanacamilpa, Mexico, you can also see the fireflies, and if you can't go yourself, this video is the next best thing. It watches like a fantasy video, even if it's real footage! It really looks like something magical on Earth, something akin to the Northern Lights and oh, I wish I could see it in person!

Have you ever been able to see these fireflies? Share your experiences in the chat!
