The Smoky Mountain Synchronous Fireflies event happens once a year and only in one other place on the planet, Southeast Asia. This year it will occur on June 5 and last through June 13. So unless you plan to hop a plane and fly down to Asia you’re not going to see something this amazing any where else. The fireflies that gather for the Elkmont Fireflies event are a rare species.

It begins a beautiful light show with thousands of fireflies lighting up at once and it can last up to 6 seconds but as soon as they get back into sync it starts again.
