Silver Cliff Cemetery Mysterious Ghost Lights & Orbs

Well documented Ghost lights. The ghosts light of this old cemetery is well known in the region. The town has gone as far to shutting off all the lights in the town because critics stated that the ghost light is reflections of the streetlights. The town turned off all the lights and still the light danced around the tombstones. The lights were first noticed by a group of weary partygoers coming back by wagon from the town of Rosita. They were questionable witness to say the least. But, after their report other people began to notice lights in the graveyard. Thinking it was some local kids having fun, the local men decided to hide at night and catch the vandals. Well hidden, they waited past dark, and then the lights came. The men jumped out from their hiding place and saw the lights with no one around. They went home rather spooked. The lights are still seen today.

Check out this video below.

The only cool thing about the video is the dates on the headstones.

Those spots are just dried water drops on the lens. My daughter and I spent the night in the cemetery 15 years ago. It is a quaint little yard with wooden head stones from the late 1800s and granite for the more modern times. The only lights we saw was a faint blue glow next to a head stone. It lasted for just a few minuets and was rather soothing. Silver Cliff was a hard rock mining town so there is methane gas in the tunnels. But if you find yourself in Southwest Colorado, the cemetery is worth the trip and if your patient, you should see some lights as well.
