NOTE: On the most recent 'Fact or Faked: The Paranormal Files' the team investigated the 'Paulding Light' phenomenon near Watersmeet, Michigan. They concluded that there is no explanation for the light. I have posted some information below as well as an update to a reader's experience at the location...Lon
There are many popular explanations for the cause of the phenomenon. Theories range from radioactive gas, anomalies in the earth's magnetic field, glowing plasma, or swamp gas. Skeptics assert that the light is nothing more than headlights in the distance. Others believe that the paranormal has a hand in the lights origin. One popular paranormal tale describes the ghost of a brakeman killed in the nineteenth century as the cause. Alternative paranormal theories include UFO's and other ghosts.
Several amateur studies have been conducted, all of them concluding that the lights are indeed the result of the mid-1960s rerouting of US 45, giving the viewing spot a slightly angled view of sporadic traffic along the new highway. The colors then match headlights, tail lights, and the warning lights of the occasional emergency vehicle. Proponents of supernatural explanations discount these studies, claiming that the lights studied in these cases are not, in fact, the actual Lights of Paulding.
Another popular paranormal explanation is the ghost of a mailman, who was carrying out the mail about 60 years ago in the northwoods with a dogsled. Because the mail was running late public authorities were looking for the missing mailman and found him and his dogs dead on the spot where nowadays the Paulding Light is observed.

MUFON witness report: My son and I wanted to investigate the Paulding Lights Mystery. So the morning of March 1, 2009, after I had gotten off work, we took an Northwest Airline flight from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Iron Mountain, Michigan. We landed about 4:30PM and I think we left Iron Mountain's airport, called Ford Airfield, about 5:30PM. We rented a car and drove to Paulding. It was about +2 above zero when we left the airport. We drove from Iron Mountain MI and Paulding MI via State Road 2 to Watersmeet then State Road 45 to Paulding. We made one stop for coffee (but I would have to go back and re-due the route to remember which gas station we stopped at). The sun was starting to set low and I told my son that he should do an intro to our video explaining what and where we where going to investigate. As he turned on the camera, the camera filmed something in the back seat of our car, however, we never had time to review the film until three months later. I have asked the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota to see if someone there might have an idea on what this might be. I also posted the video on YouTube to see if anyone else might of filmed or seen the same thing. YouTube post: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YVObeD6qGI
Here are Your Following Points:
1. We were driving to Pauling Michigan from Iron Mountian Airport.
2. Reviewing the film we took looking for the Paulding Lights.
3. Dimensional Person.
4. We did not noticed anything while we where driving. Not until I reviewed the film 3 months later did we see the thing in the back seat.
5. Describe your feelings, reactions and actions, during and after sighting the object. Normal
6. How did you lose sight of the object? Only the camera saw it.
We were using a JVC compact camcorder model GR-AXM17U, it uses VHS-C tapes. I really would like someone to take a real good look at this film.

NOTE: You don't normally see a spirit anomaly report at MUFON. I don't really know what to make of this but there is probably a plausible explanation, though, the glowing of this anomaly is very interesting...Lon
UPDATE: I received the following from our spiritual adviser and clairvoyant 'SW':
Male child spirit, connected to a particular spot in the area where video was taken, near (or on) a curve in road. There are the letters "D" and an "L" that are important but don't know if that is from a name, location, etc.
Child sits in back seat like he did before his death, over and over. Child is very sad. He rides in many cars though most all never know he is there, always going the same direction, to the same place he died.
UPDATE: Hello everyone on Phantoms & Monsters! We appreciate you guys for posting our video here on your site.
In our continuing exploration of The Paulding Lights and this new Spirit Anomaly/Alien type Being we filmed in the back seat of our car, I present to all for their studies, an digital remastered film of this Blue Alien.

This film has been studied by The University of Minnesota,The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) offices in Minnesota and Texas, The Tesla Society, Jose Escamilia, Ed Grimsly and NASA. At this time, NO ONE knows what the blue object is.
If anyone has any comments please feel free to email me at email@example.com
Soon we will travel back up to Paulding for an extended stay and try to see what we capture on film again. Any advice is highly welcomed.
