Neon purple flash lights up Toledo skies – But there is a simple explanation

December 18, 2023 by No Comments

If you’ve driven past certain parts of I-275 South near Toledo then you may have seen a bright, neon purple light in the skies. This light is not normal by anyone’s standards and looks incredibly unusual. Naturally, this may lead to theories regarding its origins and bizarrely, it is a regular feature and isn’t a one-off. Despite looking paranormal, it actually has a very mundane explanation and may not be as exciting as you may first assume.

If you are familiar with the area then you may have heard that this is the result of a local greenhouse. In other words, the odd, purple light is the result of light pollution and is a mass of UV lights used on the produce.


This is created by The Greenhouse Delta which is a cannabis dispensary in Delta, near Toledo. It’s a fairly new dispensary, having opened its doors in 2020. The Greenhouse Delta Toledo is known for its wide selection of cannabis products, including flowers, edibles, concentrates, and topicals.

It goes without saying that running an industrial-sized cannabis dispensary would require a lot of lighting for heat and growth. During the day this is not visible due to the lighter skies. However, when it gets dark, it becomes clearer. In other words, this is nothing out of the ordinary but certainly makes for a cool visual while driving.
