The "LIGHT" has defied explanation since it was first sighted many years ago, although theories abound.How it changed my life:
To observe the phenomenon, one must drive north from Watersmeet, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, on U.S. 45 for 4 miles toward the neighboring village of Paulding, and take Robbins Pond Road for a short distance west - an unimproved rural lane once part of a military road authorized by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War in anticipation of a British attack through Canada.
By tramping through dense woods to the summit of nearby hills, the mysterious light can be observed almost every night once darkness has descended on the northern wilderness.
It appears to rise slowly out of the forest and then hovers low in the sky for varying intervals - ranging from a couple of minutes to over a quarter of an hour. Often described as looking like a "bright star" it first seems to be a campfire ember, reaching an intense reddish glow, then becoming a haze and finally receding to a mere spark before disappearing into the night.
Explanations vary from fanciful to factual. Some say it's the spirit of a long dead mail carrier ambushed by Indians over a century ago; others insist it is the ghost of an engineer killed in a nearby railroad accident in years gone by. One woman thinks it's a mystical sign of religious significance.
In the meantime, "THE MYSTERY LIGHT" continues to baffle, intrigue and mystify the visitor.
I live in the U.P. of Michigan but never have been there but there are books written about this place and I thought it would be something very interesting to read.
It hasn't but I love to read about unexplained happenings and this surely is one.You can join Unsolved Mysteries and post your own mysteries or
