Yes, I live in the area and have seen the Spooklight several times. As far as I'm concerned, although I don't know what it is, it's for real. I'm not buying into the 'reflected light' theory. I've seen it come up beside the car, within a foot of the door glass and then vanish into the night at an incredible rate of speed, or it might just boink along back down the road or out across the field. I was probably 6 or 7 the first time I saw it so that's been almost 60 years ago, and it's still around, acting the same way.... You don't always see it, but it's worth the drive down on the chance you will. My 2 cents.

Cool!
It's a long ways down there for me, but I'd love to check it out someday.
