So many posts and slowly they have started to decrease. I am looking for someone that has seen this light within the last 2 months. I beg you, please do not respond just to add nothing that supports the light.

This is extremely important because I am a part of this tragedy. it happened in 1966, it’s all there in the police report.

If you are out there and have seen the light within the last 2 months we can talk outside of this forum……Just let me know that you have actually seen the light(s)………we can arrange to talk online elsewhere.

Watson, I use to go to see the light as a kid, I now live in the colony off 210 right where the light was, I can assure you the light is no longer there as there is lots of development going on over there and roads have changed. Old airport area has not been developed yet but soon will be as they are clearing that land now. I can say strange things happened in our house when we first moved in and i still wonder if the area is haunted?

Hi Jewel – Thanks for replying to my request. Do you know anything about the local police asking for an investigation into the “Light” during the middle 1980’s? Apparently there were so many calls to the police about the light that they sought help from a group of scientists. I don’t know of the outcome of the investigation. Concerning the old airport, when I was in high school in Jacksonville we would drag race out there….just a bunch of crazy kids-ha. Why am I so interested in the “Light” – On our high school graduation night my two best friends were on a motorcycle on that road and had a horrible accident and they both died. It may sound crazy but I wonder if the “Light” could be one of them somehow stuck in that time period?

I live in Ft Myers FL and Ive learned that either a person believes in the spirit world or they don’t. I was taking photos of some furniture I was selling and when I looked at the photos you can distinctly see ten small orbs and one VERY large orb over my bed and that they were moving from place to place. I dont ask anyone to believe me..I know FOR A FACT and I dont need anyones approval on what I saw..I live with it everyday. Some people wouldnt believe in a spirit if it knocked em on their butt. The spirit is a soul of someone who once lived a human existence. The human body is a vessel for the soul..when the body (vessel) dies the soul moves on. Its like a glass of drop the glass and it breaks..the water doesnt moves on to a different place. The most beautiful gift we can experience is knowing that those we love that have moved on before us remain with us in part. There will always be those people who refuse to believe in the spiritual rhelm. Their minds are closed to anything that they cant see or touch and thats really sad for them. I KNOW WHAT I SAW..I DONT NEED ANYONE TO SAY YES OR NO..I DONT CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY..I still have the photos if anyone wants to see for themselves but if you want to look at them just to tell me Im crazy please keep it to yourself. I guess none of us will know until we actually die will we ?? Or will we ?

I should add that I always heard that animals are super perceptive of spirits. Before I actually saw the orbs in the photos I took I noticed that my dog..a 4 yr old boxer..would sit at night and stare into the dark room. Her head moved left..right and up. She was staring at something and refused to enter into the dark room even when I tried to get her to. She is not a dog that spooks easily but there was something she was looking at that frightened her that I couldnt see. Im sure now that she was watching the Orbs that I had taken with my digital camera a few days later. She would lie on the floor and stare up at the dark ceiling..then look left and then right as if watching something moving around the room. Many times Id get up and look, not seeing anything made me feel a little spooked but I knew that she saw something and it scared her. After I took the photos in my room and actually caught the eleven orbs on camera I knew what she had been seeing. I have been in contact with a reputable medium and she has verified what I already knew. I also want to say that I have had some psychic abilities for over 40 years and after I saw the orbs I used spirit rods to contact them. I was only able to ask for YES and NO responses as I dont have an EVP recorder. I definately got responses to my questions.With that said..before anyone ever tries to communicate with any type of spirits it can be extremely dangerous. You can open a vortex (doorway) that can allow many evil spirits to come thru as well as good ones. YOU HAVE TO CLEAN YOUR OWN THOUGHTS AND SAY PRAYERS FOR PROTECTION.YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IN THE POWERS OF GOD AND JESUS CHRIST AND ASK FOR ONLY GOOD,CLEAN SPIRITS OF GOD TO COME THROUGH. Im not a nut case..I know what Im talking about..and stay away from Quija boards..they are not a toy and can open up things that can harm you. Always know what you are doing..laugh at me if you choose but I know what Im saying.

I went through my entire teenage and young adult years as a non-believer. That was changed in October 1990 when i heard unexplained voices, twice telling me to leave the house I just purchased. Oddities continued for quite some time, the kids were not only scared but fearful as well. I eventually remodeled and all the oddities went away.
Then in June of 2007 I bought a townhouse in Jacksonville, not to far from Ghost Light Road. Soon after I experienced shadows traveling across my front door foyer. Living alone I never told a ANYONE! Though was always diligent watching for the shadows when I had guests over. I happen to have a date over in December 2008, when she says, ” Do you know you have shadows?” OMG someone else sees them as well. I felt so relieved. We continued to see them for quite some time. They never bothered us, however they liked to toy with the cats.
Anyways…one night around 2:00am we were heading home from Shands Pier traveling on Greenbriar and saw an ominous mass. We both looked at each other and said “Did you see that?” We both did, however when we discussed turning around for another look, we both decided we should not as the mass was roughly 10′ high, 4′ wide and was a dark black shadow. We traveled that same route several times and have not seen the mass or any orbs since then.

I live just off Greenbriar in a new development. The one thing I will tell you is be careful this road a strait stretch and people drive like a bat escaping hell.

20 years ago, we were there late looking for it, but the KKK were on horseback chasing us away. Scared us to death.

Watson, sorry I haven’t replied sooner, it’s been so many years since I’ve been to this site. I have read about the scientist that came out to investigate the light. I believe the outcome was the way the roads were designed back then. you can google it, the findings are posted online. I use to go out there for the drag races in the 80’s, very creepy. I wish you luck in your findings.

The secret of Ghost Light Road is nothing more than Zumi with a flashlight looking for his lemon cake. If you don’t know what I mean then look up Prospect Hill Cemetary right in this very website.
