Southern Block Island Lights and other Paranormal Events:

On the southern tip of Block Island, locals haver reported hearing the disembodied sounds of children crying. Some have reported seeing strange light phenomena in the area. For example, one observer looking out over the harbor on a stormy night noted that the lights appeared blue in color and triangular in shape. It appeared and then vanished about a quarter of a mile from the shore. The ghost ship appeared and then reappeared a number of times, changing from a bluish to a purplish color. The ghost ship eventually vanished completely as though consumed by waves.
