Mystery Light in Northern Michigan

I am intrigued by the possibility that we are being visited by strange beings. After reading many of the reports on your sight specifically where lights in the sky are concerned, I thought you might be intrested in hearing about the Watersmeet Mystery Light. Though not considered a UFO this occurance is considered a Ghost Light that seems very simmilar to many of your reported UFO lights. The Mystery Light is located 11 miles north of Watersmeet Michigan on an abandonded railroad grade, in the middle of the National Forest. First reported in the 1940's this strange light appears on a nightly basis From sundown till dawn.This light comes and goes as if to have a mind of its own. The light has been seen above and within the tree line, I have seen the light change from white to red numerous times. I live in the Chicago area and have visited this sight on many summer trips to the upper penninsula of Michigan.There are other areas in the U.S. where similar sightings are observed Marfa,Texas / Gurdon Arkansas / The White Mountains in North Carolina. I am entering this information as a possible explanation for some of reported sightings of strange lights in your files. There is one problem: These Mystery Lights ( though easy to witness ) are also unexplained.
