  1. I am near this cemetery a lot because I work close by. One night I was sitting in my car across the street just after sunset. I got the urge to look over and my eyes met this extremely bright white light in the middle of a bunch of headstones not too far off. It was very bright and noticeable and I had definitely never noticed it before, it was low to the ground and stationary. As I watched the light it turned off and on several times then it just started flickering very fast at that point I got creeped out and left. I haven’t seen that light since.
