Firstly, it does appear that there are Anne-glows and Todd-glows that are a totally different species.
When it comes to Anne-glows I always see them as like the glowing mushrooms that we had when I lived in the tropics - I'd find my way down a long drive in the dark by avoiding them - they were in the trees that lined the drive, and they were a blueish colour.
Underground lights are quite possible too. After all, we have glowworms in damp caves.
The trouble is, both lights can be seen easily, but don't actually cast a light. No matter how many there were, you couldn't read by them.
I think this is a situation where imagination triumphs over science. It works if you just visualise them but doesn't work if you try too hard to analyse it into a concrete science.
