The ghost lights are bluish orbs that seem to dance among the headstones of Silver Cliff Cemetery. Many people have seen the lights and they have been featured in National Geographic, and you can see an article here from the local paper about the phenomenon. I believe this may be one of the truly haunted popular paranormal sites in the state.
A close friend of mine has seen the lights more than once. Each time he passes through Silver Cliff, he stops to see the lights.
There doesn’t seem to be a rational explanation for the lights. Research proved it isn’t from another light source, and there seems to be no source for the light to reflect from.
The only other explanation I’ve heard for the Silver Cliff Cemetery that isn’t ghostly is that the cemetery is built on a sidhe (pronounced shee.) A sidhe is a fairy mound, (where, according to legend, fairies live, or maybe a portal the world of the Fae) and the lights could be compared to Will ‘O the Wisp. I’ve heard stranger things, but I’m not sure how much I buy into the lights actually being fairies.
What do you think causes the ghost lights? Ghosts? Fairies? Headlights? Or something else?
