Strange Lights at Coloma Pioneer Cemetery (Investigation-sorta)

Strange Lights at the Coloma Pioneer Cemetery

After finishing my World of the Paranormal radio program in Georgetown on Saturday, January 17th, 2009 I decided to take my book and return to the Pioneer Cemetery to read for a while. I have always been drawn to this cemetery. Although I have not had the pleasure of seeing the Lady in Burgundy there, the famous spirit who reportedly haunts the cemetery, I can feel her presence every time I visit. I carry a collapsible chair in my PT cruiser, so after arriving, I pulled it out, grabbed my book and headed to the top area of the cemetery where the Lady has most often been seen (by others).

I set up my chair just behind and above the family plot where she stands beckoning passersby to visit, next to an old tree that now grows in the midst of another grave site. After making myself comfortable, I opened my book and read a few chapters. About ten minutes after I arrived I noticed that someone had started a fire on the other side of the street near the Vineyard house property. The smoke billowed up but not in my direction. It was down the hill and to the right of where I was sitting, so the smell of smoke was not overpowering.

After reading and enjoying my environment for about an hour the sun began to descend behind the tops of the other trees growing in the cemetery. I looked up and noticed that the sun was right on top of one of the tall grave makers in front of me and thought it would make a great photograph. I took a few pictures of the departing orb, and then went back to my reading. A few minutes later I began feeling chilled. I had not worn a coat when I arrived because it had been unseasonably warm that day. As soon as I thought that I should leave, a small gust of warm air surrounded me. I looked around to make sure that I was still alone. I saw nothing. I went back to reading and a few seconds later I felt another warm breeze surround me. This continued for about ten minutes. Just after I felt a chill, I would feel another burst of warm air. I felt as though someone was trying to warm me in an attempt to keep me from leaving.

Here are the photos I took while sitting in my chair. I took four photos, all within the span of a minute and a few seconds of each other. The unexplained lights could have been the sun shining through the dense laves. However that would not explain how they show up in different places and that the one closest to the stone seems to be glowing next to it, as if it were very close to it. You be the judge and tell me your explanation for these strange little lights.

This is the first photo I took of the light on top of the grave marker.  The little lights are near the lower mid section on the right hand side.

This is the family plot where the Lady in Burgundy is most often seen by passersby driving past the cemetery.  My chair was positioned behind and slightly above this area.

I took this photograph of the tree that was to my left when I was sitting at the cemetery.  I thought the bark patterns looked like wrinkles on an old man's face.  This is also the tree where Jon Almada recorded the great EVP of a little boy saying,

I love the world of "we are not sure but"....Great article and the pictures are lovely. The lights are amazing. Of course we know there is a dimension out there that is not traveled well as yet. I have had many experiences with the other world.
