If your kids are fascinated by UFOs, aliens, ghosts or any of the other myriad mysteries of the world, then you would be doing them a disservice by not running them by the Hornet Ghost Light if you ever get the chance. The Hornet Ghost Light is located around the town of Neosho, Missouri and the mystery that surrounds the ghostly illumination dates back to at least the 1860s.
The Hornet Ghost Light can be located along an eerie little back road known as the Devil’s Promenade. The most common description of the strange light hanging in the sky is that it looks like a floating lantern. Of course, since the Hornet Ghost Light dates back to pioneer days, what other object would it look like? Your kids may describe it as a flying Bulbasaur. Some younger kids may be a little frightened, but the Hornet Ghost Light is probably a quite natural phenomenon, probably mine gas. Of course, don’t try telling the people of Neosho that.
Some visitors to the Hornet Ghost Light have reported trying to follow the glowing orb down the Devil’s Promenade only to find out that the closer they seem to get, the farther away the light became. There have been a few devoted party poopers who want you think that the light has attacked them, but so far no authenticity is attached to these reports, so don’t let that make you too terrified to take your kids.
America today is dominated like never before by the idea of the unexplained, and entire generations are being raised watching “Ghost Hunters” and other shows on the Travel Channel and Discovery Channel about strange and supernatural events . The Hornet Ghost Light presents the opportunity to test the mettle of your kids. Oh sure, every kid enjoys seeing the unexplained on TV, especially if Leonard Nimoy is the narrator, but how will they react to actually seeing a strange glowing light in the sky? The Hornet Ghost Light is your answer.
