Strange Light

This strange light has been in Watersmeet, Michigan, part of the upper peninsula, for as long as I can remember. The light is called the Paulding Light. My husband was born here and he says he has always known about them.

Ripley's and Unsolved Mysteries have been there but could not prove what it was. There have been many other TV shows to check the light and none has been able to explain what this strange light is. There are lots of ideas as to what it is. Here are a few.

Two children, a boy and a girl, were playing on the train track the train hit them and hey both died on the tracks. The boy still comes back there every night to look for his beloved sister, using a lantern like they had both carried the night they died.

The ghost of a railroad brakeman died on the tracks.

Ghost of an Indian dancing on the power lines.

Others believe there is a vortex located near the site.

Locals attest to the fact the lights start over Lake Superior and make their way inland.

Many say their headlights from the nearby highway. People claim to have seen the lights way back at the turn of the century. If they actually do go back to the turn of the century it would not be caused from headlights. This country was barely settled then.

There are signs in Watersmeet showing how to get there. If you're lost just ask a local they can tell you.

Ghost Hunters girl.

I saw one of the girls on International Ghost Hunters talking about the Paulding light. She's from the area. She said the light was caused by electricity jumping between the power lines. She said this without really knowing what actually caused the light.

When have you ever seen this happen other than in a storm? What a silly thing to say when you really don't know.

She was one of the girls who disappeared from the show.

Stories We've Heard

Our son said when he went to see the lights they came right up to the hood of their car. They all ducked scared the heck out of them.

There seem to be strange things going on in this area. We had a friend who was snowmobiling with his brother when a strange light suddenly appeared in front of them. Being the chickens they were they took off and never found out what the light was.

We had some other friends who this also happened to except they saw the light leave and it left a hole on the ground with melted snow.

We have witnessed strange lights as explained in my hub below, Our UFO Triangle Sighting. Objects In The Sky.

Who knows what is going on around this area and what the Paulding Light actually is. I would guess we will never know

What Can You Do In Watersmeet.

It's great snow country, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing with well-groomed trails. My nephew and his family go there every winter for snowmobiling.

There's a casino called Lac Vieux Desert Resort Casino. There are other places to stay.

In the summer places to bike, camp, golf and fish.

Watersmeet is a small Michigan town and they get lots of tourist because of this light. It attracts people every year. It was the main thing for our kids to go see when they were in high school. It's just one of the many mysteries in this world.

If you're ever staying in the upper peninsula near this area put this on your list and go see the Paulding Light, the very strange light of Watersmeet.

Au fait and Barbara Kay. Thank you both for stopping by I appreciate it. I won't be answering my comments for a while and I always go back to comment on each person that puts comments on my hubs but I will not be able to that.

My husband is in the hospital with blood clots in his lungs and they also found a mass between his lungs. They are pretty positive it is cancer. We will be busy with test and finding the right doctor. There is much for him to go through now.

I wrote a hub about the most haunted places in Michigan and included this. My son used to live in the Northern Peninsula and told me about them. They liked to go there and see the lights. It is strange, but Michigan has a lot of strange stories.

Don't know how I missed this article. Thought I'd read all of yours and then every once in a while I discover one I somehow missed. I love mysteries like this and have read about them since I was in elementary school. As Billrrr says, there are strange and weird things all over this country and this world that have no explanation. This is the first I've ever heard of the Paulding Light.

Voting this article up and IA. Going to share it with my followers and also pinning it to my "Unsolved Mysteries' board.

Da Rad thanks for stopping by my hub. Guess we will never know what the light is. I don't know how long it's actually been there.

I have seen this light several times its gives off a strange aura almost like being in the presense of a spirit.

It dances around and changes color and frequency. The orbs are easily distracted to sound and light. So if you get a chance to see this phenomanon relax grab a beverage and watch . Its interesting and remember dont litter especially in Gods country.

I heard the voice the first thing she said was "I'm getting tired" and the second thing was sounded like "Can we leave." Listen again and see if you hear that. I think it must be a child they have with them.

Thanks for posting on this hub.

In all the years they must have setup cameras to try and figure this out but as far as I know no one has.

you know there are more videos about the light right. watch this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOtq7kQPfMw. when it comes to 8 secs listen carefully you can hear a small female voice whispering something like a warning or something in the audio but the group is obvlious to the whispering. then as the video goes on there is more whispering but i cant make out what it is. wow creepy

My GOD... the LIGHT really appears!!! I mean with the technology readily at hand why cant they try to find out what's going on by placing hidden cameras at the spot the light usually appears? My heart is racing after watching the video. Thank you so much for such an exciting hub Moonlake. Love it. loving it still.... i cant sem to get out of your hub. as if i will find some answers by watching the video over and over again. this is my 5th time :=)

Thanks for stopping by my hub. It is spooky funny how they can't seem to find out what it is.
