I just wanted to post a message hearing about so many people claiming its only headlights in the distance. Last night was my first time visiting the light. Within 20 minutes of waiting a little red light appeared in the distance.At first it would seem very logical to believe its only tail lights but then the light began changing back and forth from red to green every few seconds. It then quickly dissapeared after some idiots decided to drive right up to the point with their brights on, but within 10 minutes the light reapeared. This time it slowly moved twards us until it was only about 40 ft away (down the hill) at which point it vanshed.we left shortly after this. I wish I would have brought my camera because it looked amazing and after reading other reports it appears I got very lucky.

I believe Bobby! I have seen it green a couple times too. I never saw it slowly come towards me, but I once saw it whiz down the hill, stop at the creek and disappear. Ok, I know some people won't believe me with no evidence, but I can assure you that I take a scientific and practical look at things and I wouldn't make something like this up. Take my word for it or not, I have spoken!
Not everybody goes out there prepared with a high quality video camera. Who knows, the light may not show its most unique in those situations, intentionally. Whether you believe it or not, I'm probably one of the most cynical and skeptical bastards who's ever come out of the UP and from what I've seen, I have no doubts that the light is not headlights, reflections, etc. Headlights several miles away don't consistently shut off for minutes at a time when you flash yours (only to reappear in a different location far too different at that distance to have been someone simply driving in pitch black), only to reappear and bob up and down a hill, the apex of which would prevent you from seeing the lights of a car driving up and down hills unless you were sitting in a very tall tree or suspended in the air. How do you explain that it's headlights when when you can perch in the woods up over the hill where it appears during the failing light, and it floats right past you after nightfall, only to disappear when you try to approach it?
The most skeptical people on this and similar subjects that I've ever witnessed are always those with the most intense belief in a man sitting on a cloud in a white robe, and who have the least education. I assure you that I'm a firm believer in God, whatever form "he" may take. However, those who preclude any supernatural existance in "his" name are, well, just idiots.
I have seen the red and blue/green lights as well. They traveled down the hill a ways actually off to the sides in the trees. They were below the crest of the hill making it impossible for them to be from a far off road. The incredible part however was when the white light intensified and grew farily quickly and then.....not sure here but it either flashed and got so bright that it seemed to fly through the car or it actually did. I guess when your talking about light moving it is the same thing but I can say that it freaked my family out enough that they asked me to leave immediately after. Trust me, it was not car lights. I will say that for the first 15-20 minutes we were there I was convinced it was a scam and all i was seeing were distant headlights and tail lights. But then i actually saw what all the fuss was about. Sorry, no video because I just don't tend to video things because it seems like when i am taking video i miss out on everything. Too easy to fake video anyway so it would never really prove anything.
The headlight theory is one, however, has anyone thought of Mountain Bikers with handlebar lights and lights connected to the bike post? (one is red , one is bright white). They barely make noise on the ground, they can zip around and make the light appear in different directions at different times. They can easily move closer and back up with No motor noise? It can make the light appear like it's swinging side to side from a distance. Think about it! Car theories are great, but how come no one has ever suggested a mountain bike with lights ? We use it all the time to go night riding. Consider this. I would love to believe that the Paulding lights are a true phenomenon. It would make the whole residual haunting experience real and concrete. But, things like this make me question its authenticity, when no one has completely researched and studied its existence to the fullest detail. Show me proof and show me a detailed and well-thought out plan to prove and leave with no doubt in mind that it is real and unquestionable. That's all I ask.
Logic....this light gets very large and very very bright. You really can't tell from the videos. The light I saw was bigger and brighter than what you see when a jet is landing. Guess you have to see it to understand. If you see it and come away thinking it is car lights or a mountain biker than you have not been lucky enough to see the real light. If you come away saying HOLY nuts WTF was that? Congratulations, you have seen the paulding light.
Joe, why do you insist on waiting for video. Go yourself and get it. The fact is that there is video out there and even on this website. The problem is that you can't tell anything from it. This must be the nature of trying to video a light in the dark, idk. I can tell you that I saw video of a mystery light that they came across near the pyramids on destination truth. The were freaking out with how big and bright it was and how it was moving around but on the video it was less than impressive. Video is not the answer to this one because if somebody actually did get great footage it would be labeled a hoax.
i just got back from the light. i have been there many times this year. its not cars thats for sure. its not swamp gas either. anybody who has been there also knows the shadows are weird too. if you dont believe it is worth it to go spend a couple hours there better yet get out of the car and see how long you stay there when its bright right in front of you or when four or five little red orbs are floating around in front of you after you watched them come down the trail for miles. its creepy and i have hundreds of pictures and videos... go check it out
