This Spooky Unexplained Phenomenon in Oklahoma Will Give You Goosebumps

Many mysterious things happen in Oklahoma, and if you dig deep enough you can usually find an explanation. However, there is one natural (or supernatural) phenomenon that occurs in Ottawa County, Oklahoma that has left scientists baffled for over a half of a century. Welcome to Spook Light…where an unexplained source of light appears over the sky at different times and in different shapes.  It appears on the border between Missouri and Oklahoma. However, the light is only visible from inside the Oklahoma border looking to the west.
