Synchronous Fireflies in the Smokies

Like an old-time movie marquee.  An orchestrated light show--flash, flash, flash, sparkle, pause--and so on.  An airport runway, the light taking off down the path and into the darkness.  Christmas lights, or better yet, what they are trying to replicate: the glisten of icicles at night.  The Electric Light Parade.  Moonlight on rippling water.  The sparkle of thousands of camera flashes, like we will see during the Olympic Opening Ceremonies later this summer.  Yeah, that's how it looked.  And felt.
