This is the season for all things spooky, so when Newburgh residents saw a strange light in the sky, many theories were tossed around on the internet.

What Could it Be?

As you can see in the photo, the October sky looked pretty spooky last night. It was kind of foggy and misting rain. This really made the spotlight stand out, and embrace the spellbinding feeling of Halloween. I actually saw a purple and blue hazy light in my neighborhood. I looked at it for a while before I realized that it was Halloween decorations down the street from me.

Social Media to the Rescue

Sometimes being on Facebook can be useful. If you are in a specific group for your town or neighborhood, that is always a good place to start if you are looking for answers. In fact, someone else probably has the same question that you have. In this case, the group My Hometown Newburgh, IN came in handy for solving this strange light mystery.

Did Anyone Else See This Light?

Anyone else see a bright spotlight across the entire sky for an hour around midnight last night. Probably the brightest light I ever seen stretched on for miles. Spooky.

I will say that midnight seems a little late to still have a spotlight going, but that's just me.

It is off Frame Road near St John’s church. A haunted house. We went last night. It is awesome! We also did the haunted house off Sharon which was a lot of fun. Would recommend both! ~ Jennifer G.
