Cue the bats and spooky music. We are about to delve into one of Michigan’s most alluring mysteries. It’s so alluring, in fact, that it draws a steady stream of pilgrims of the paranormal to the dot-in-the-road town of Paulding all summer long, and into the winter too, just to hang out on the edge of the woods and watch and wait.
They come to catch a glimpse of the Paulding Light, and they are rarely disappointed. The light (or lights; sometimes they come in groups) appears in a valley near Robins Pond Road. It was even featured this year on the SyFy television show “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files.”
Led by Jeremy Bos, a PhD candidate in electrical engineering, Michigan Tech’s student chapter of SPIE has undertaken a scientific study to determine exactly what the Paulding Light really is.
But will anyone believe them?
