    Ghost lights

    I’ve heard of ghost lights in Dover and a few other places. Was curious if anyone has heard or seen them else where.

    I've seen them in two places...The most famous is the Joplin Spooklight on the MO/OK border and then there's the Stockton Lights...Those look like a line of people walking with lanterns following the natural terrain. Strange.

    OM...I'm pretty sure the Joplin Spooklight is on YouTube still with A Lot of videos. Kind of give you an idea about it anyway.

    The Stockton Lights are thought by locals to either be Spirits of Indians or Soldiers Spirits that were killed in the CW.
    Those are not as publicized as Joplin...Nobody there wants the crowds...the sightings are always in rural areas but with lots of witnesses and they almost seem to be repeating the same thing over and over... meaning it looks like they are walking in a single file line and there are many of them. It also looks like there could be horses walking beside the line. I didn't see them for a long time, then they were there 3 nights in a row. Then Gone Again for a few nights. Then Back. That happened like that for about 4-5yrs... of course I wasn't there every night.

    Both of those are very strange since it's gone on for years and nobody has been able to explain it.

    Go in a comfortable vehicle with snacks if you go to the Joplin Spooklight...There's not a set time the light shows up unless they've patterned it now.

    I seen a big red light about a mile or so down in the bottom of a holler. No roads in there it’s pretty much inaccessible except on foot. The light was to big to be any kinda portable light and coon hunters did use red lights back then. I’ve often thought about that light and wondered what it could’ve been.

    They’re in other states to never heard of them but in the Ozarks. That’s interesting. The thing is I’ve heard you lose sight of them if you try to get close to them but other folks can still see them from a distance. Have I got that right or do they just go out

    They "blink out".

    There have been ghost light over by Miami, Ok. for 50+ years. When I was a kid my dad parked out there with all of us to experience it. It was fascinating for sure. I still don't know what caused them but it is great to ponder on.

    When I've seen the Joplin Spooklight...It will just pop up out of nowhere on that road...and then pop out.. it will follow or get in front of cars..you can see it way down the road and then it gets really close. There was no telling where it would be there or what it would do.

    The Stockton Lights...Those Never blink or fade out...picture walking with the glow of a gas lantern at your side and if they go behind a tree or trees they'll come out on the other side. Those Really Look like people...A Lot of people. Depending on when you see them if you watch long enough, you'll see the last light in the line. I've seen them a couple times from the beginning...coming over a hill and it's an hour and a half--two hours of this line of lights and what looks like horses walking beside them.

    I've seen those from the house and from the lake in the boat, night fishing. They aren't always in the same place...but I've only seen them going West/SW. There always seems to be the same amount of lights though. We've tried counting them, but it just goes on too long to keep an accurate count and you don't know when or where you'll see them.

    I have seen some very bright lights lined up in the sky. Sorta looked like ships in formation.

    I realized that I had a video button on my phone.

    I started out alone and eventually there were several watching.

    Then one fella wanted to go out to have a smoke. When he left the building, when the door shut they all came back.

    Turned out that I was videoing a reflection of the inside lights, superimposed on the glass window on the door.







    It was time to call in the dogs, pee on the fire and head out for home.

    Nobody said anything about it that next day. I guess there were more of us that saw them, than there were that didn’t!!
