The “LIGHT” has defied explanation since it was first sighted many years ago, although theories abound.To observe the phenomenon, one must drive north from Watersmeet 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. Surrounded by dense woods and from 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.
