Abstract

In 1982 a 5 m2 slab of peat, 25 cm thick, was discovered on a peat bog on the island of Andøya. Then, investigations on Andøya have provided information on 6 quite similar phenomena with slab weights varying between 100 kg and 4 tons. Outside Andøya, 5 similar phenomena have been recorded in Norway, and pieces of earth displaced from their original locations have been reported in Britain, Germany and the United States. Lightning is hypothesized to have caused these phenomena
