This is quit the local oddity. Weather a natural occurring phenomenon or a truly supernatural one. The Spook-light has caught the fascination of the locals for generations. The phantasmal light appears and disappears in all shapes sizes and colors. It was even the center of a scientific investigation by the US Government in the 50's and 60's. While it does not always appear, when it does it is a fascinating site. For real, google it. Attention: Keep in mind this is a public road and there is no parking.
