Somewhat railroad related.......

For half a century the Paulding Light, a mysterious light that glows in the forest near Paulding, MI, has been a legend in the Upper Peninsula.
The official legend says the light comes from the swaying lantern held by the ghost of a railroad brakeman

Why not just go to the spot where the lights appear and see what it is rather than stand a long distance away and guess :?

When there is no on-coming traffic, and traffic is going the other way, the light appears red. (tail lights)

We've been having some pretty intense Northern lights up here lately.
