Michigan’s Mysterious Paulding Light

Is this eerie phenomenon the result of paranormal activity?


For the past few handfuls of years people have been fascinated by an otherwise sleepy part of town in the upper peninsula of Michigan. There’s now even a sign that indicates where you can best view the source of all this curiosity: The Paulding Light, a mysterious orb of light with no confirmed origin that peeks through the trees.

Theories on the light vary from being caused by the ghost of a railroad man who died on the job, or the ghost of a grandparent endlessly looking for a missing child, but in 2010 these theories may have been debunked. A Michigan Tech grad student named Jeremy Bos set out to scientifically determine the true origin of the light and concluded that it was coming from cars on a nearby highway, reflected in such a way to make it seem like it was coming out of nowhere.

What do you think? Was this investigation a cover up to stop tourists from invading this small town, or was he right?
