Paulding Light - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I don't really believe in anything supernatural but I love checking out the stories. I don't put this in the category of supernatural but I have been here several times and its different. First of all can see the lights. I don't believe as some say that they are car lights. I have stood and walked all through this area and its very strange. They appear every night and I have been there in the middle of winter all alone and summer where there is not much room to stand.

I call BS on that. I have been there several times in winter when we had guys on radios go down and watch for car lights a few miles out. We were seeing lights when nothing was happening on the roads.

I used to hunt and fish in Land O Lakes about 15 miles from the Robins pond road where you go to see the lights. We used to go and watch them. We would watch them for 20min to an hour and they would change from white to green to red to blue and some would stay white. Let me say I don't believe in supernatural explanations, but its not car lights. We would stay at my wifes uncles condo at Kings Gate and at night go to Robins pond, sometimes before dark. I walked down to the river, came back in the back side on the other side of the river and walk it. We had people godown 45 and watch and no cars and we were seeing lights.

I had heard about the ball lights that would float above a car and cause it not to start or shut down. I never had the electrical problems but one of my many visits we were up ice fishing and my wife and myself drove out in our Dodge to watch. We were watching the lights and I saw some light behind me, its a mile or so down Robins pond and its very secluded and in winter very dark. I was keeping and eye out for people who may not be there to see the lights.
I saw a ball of light behind me that did not shine like a snow mobile but glowed, it passed from left to right across the road behind me. At first I thought it was a snow mobile. I decided we had better go and I turned around and went slow and there was not one track in the snow. No Snow machine tracks no foot prints not a thing. Can not tell you what it was but I saw what I saw.

Personally I think it could be some electromagnetic phenomena but its not car lights on 45
I posted this on their site. We would see red, green and blue lights but mostly white. The police pulling people over is total BS. If you have ever been there it is one of the most deserted places around. In winter its nothing around going on for miles. Dead. I know its not car lights. How stupid do you think people are? Believe it or not or one of those outfits gave a 100000 dollar reward back in the day if anyone could explain it, Cars would be the very first thing and was that would be eliminated. Its CO road 5230 just past Robins Pond. We used Robins pond as a marker to know where to turn. There is nothing out there and I come from the rural's.

Perhaps it's something similar to Saint Elmo's Fire :

What ever it is and I could very well be wrong, but when I saw the light behind my truck and no marks it was not car lights down the road. There is more to it than car lights IMO.
