We arrived as a group at the 'Ghost Road' at approximately 7:30 pm. The town of Port Perry and surrounding regions was completely without power. Members of H.R.G. stationed themselves with a telescope at the 1/2 km mark. Four of us remained at the intersection at Pine Point, while two others (Krystal and Steve) made the trek to a point approximately 2 km south of this intersection. At the 1/2 km mark, observations of the 'spooklight' were easily made with the use of a telescope. These were viewed as "large fireballs". Those (Krystal and Steve) 2 km south excitedly reported that they could see the 'ghostlight' from a hill surrounded by field and woods. There is a line of hydro poles running north/south. The lake further to the south was easily visible at this location. The 'light' was observed singularly. This was the first time an observation of the 'light' phenomena was observed by our group at a location other than 'Ghost Road'. We gathered as a group at the 1/2 km mark and a hypothesis, to be tested, was quickly formulated based on the following: - eyewitness testimony and photos taken that the 'spooklight' origin is south of the lake and Scugog Island; - the 'spooklight' origin viewed as one single light from this new location would be at a much greater distance than we anticipated or tested through our previous car headlight experiments.
Hypothesis: Cars placed on the West Quarter Line at a greater distance than previous experiments, facing both north and south with both highbeams and lowbeams switched on, will in fact be seen as one singular light from Mississauga Trail and the newly found observation spot.
Experiment: Group A (Sue, Lisa, Anita & Dee) will observe any and all light activity that occurs from 'Ghost Road', noting the time and duration of each. Group B (Steve, Krys, Jay & Julie) will be on the West Quarter Line shining both high and low beams, and taillights towards the direction of Group A. Group B will also record the time and direction of any other traffic on the West Quarter Line.
Conclusions: Group A consistently saw displays of the 'spooklight' (reported over 20 times) while Group B was stationed on the West Quarter Line at a distance of 3.6 km further south than previous experiments were conducted to test the car headlight hypothesis.
Group B deliberately flashed both high and low beams northward at the direct prompting of Group A. The true location of origin at a greater distance than previously tested is consistent with the observations of the 'spooklight' as one single light as opposed to two from both 'Ghost Road' and the newly found observation spot. It also correlates with the mathematical formula mentioned during Para-Researchers of Ontario's visit #12. All vehicle lights at this distance will be viewed as singular both with the naked eye and optical devices from 'Ghost Road' viewing spots, at this distance. The actual location of origin further explains why the counting of cars on the West Quarter Line proved inconsistent during our previous attempts (they must be positioned at this location) to create the effect seen on 'Ghost Road'. We have now established the actual origin/causation of the consistent 'spooklight' observed on 'Ghost Road'. Vehicle lights are easily visible over this distance due to refraction and further reflection from the line of hydro poles running north/south and in alignment with the West Quarter Line location. Our observations, verifiable experiments, and simultaneous videotaped footage, while remaining in direct communication, bare this out.
