Pale Rider

Look into the lower right quadrant of the image beginning at 1:23 into the video.

Revelation 6:7 When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living being say, “Come!” I looked up and saw a horse whose color was pale green. Its rider was named Death, and his companion was the Grave. These two were given authority over one-fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword and famine and disease and wild animals.

Some say it is a lens flare. Others a reflection of the fire in the background captured by the camera. As proof of the flare theory, people also point to the small companion balls of light that follow the rider and disappear as the rider does when the camera pans.

In some translations of the Bible, the Greek word Hades is often translated into Hell. Some question the accuracy of that translation, and think it more accurately can be translated into "grave".

How many of you have seen or heard of spook lights in a graveyard?

So many much strangeness....

Oooh, spooky. Pretty weird for a camera flare. Looks like a horse to me.

Looks like something spooky, but if you watch carefully you can see it is a reflection of light from a drop of water on the camera lens.

I spent lots of time watching will-o'-the-wisp in the swamps along the gulf of Mex. spooky but just bioluminescence from rotting junk.

Hey Freyja,

It is odd how things like this manifest and seem to fit prophecies and our own power of observation.


Sometimes explanations aren't as much fun as a good story. When I was a kid, my brother and I would see spooklights in an old cemetery near where we grew up.

Some would come up to the fence line and remain for a few moments before drifting back into the cemetery.

If they were a natural phenomena, why were they confined to the graveyard? Surely some would have drifted into the road, or into the neighboring rodeo grounds....
