There's a similar story here in Arkansas. The Gurdon Light.
Now, I will say that I am a VERY skeptical person. Carl Sagan Skeptical (thus, my signature....). That being said, I have witnessed the Gurdon Light
myself as part of a novelty paranormal investigation that I participated in with a group of about 30 people. These types of amateur investigations
are typically NOT my thing. I am too much of a scientific elitist....admittedly. However, there were SEVERAL events that night....both with the
Light itself and other weird or even paranormal occurrences that made me doubt my reality.
I would break down my experience (and that of the group) into 3 major albeit separate events:
1. The light anomaly itself. We separated into two groups of approximately 15 people. The goal was to "capture" the light BETWEEN the groups and
then approach it from both sides of the tracks while taking readings with various pieces of equipment and recording the light and the readings on
2. Weird people on the tracks. I hesitate to say "alleged satanists" because that is what many people in our group claimed. We were on the tracks in
the middle of the night during a new moon. After we observed the light and did our little experiments, everyone headed back towards the clearing
where the cars were parked. One group was approximately a half mile ahead of the second group. We were all in communication with UHF radio headsets.
The first group radio'd back to my group (the back group) and said there were "people on the tracks." When we asked for clarification, they said
"there's a group of people on the tracks and they are giving everyone a bad feeling." No other details. Within a few minutes, our group came upon
these "people." There were a handful of adults and two very young children, a boy and girl. The boy and girl were sitting on the tracks facing each
other. The adults were circled around them and looked very angry and downright hostile at our "intrusion." Despite our group having NO LESS than a
half dozen law enforcement professionals, strangely (and very out of character) no one wanted to question or even speak to these individuals.
Everyone just kept walking...except me. I slowed down and stared at them all. At that point, the little girl looked up at me and said "are you the
last one?" Before I could even respond, my partner grabbed my arm and literally dragged me away down the tracks. He was very concerned we were in
danger and wanted us to get out of there. As we got a little further away, we passed two girls who looked to be teenagers who were headed towards the
strangers. One of the girls was heavily pregnant. Neither spoke to either group....
3. The time slip. Both groups were anxious to get back to our vehicles because of the encounter with the strangers. The parking for the Gurdon light
is typically a large clearing in the woods right next to the tracks. After walking what seemed to be a ridiculously long time, our group (the back
group) ran into the highway. In order to reach the highway, you have to pass the clearing where the cars were parked. We never passed the clearing.
Everyone was clearly confused.... How could 15 people miss something like that? Granted, it was dark although we were all wearing headlamps or had
flashlights. We were also weirded out by the strangers....but all 15 people MISS the clearing where at least 20 cars were parked? Not likely.... We
turned back and headed the other direction and eventually came across the clearing. Everyone from the entire first group had left? When we got back
in our vehicles, it was evident that we were missing several hours which no one could account for. It should NOT have taken several hours to make
that small hike. These things were not adding up and I still do not have any explanation. There is no gap in my memory. I don't have any
recollection of "blacking out" or waking up in a different place I couldn't explain....
Altogether, it was just a very strange and unexplained experience.
