Attic Appartion

Attic apparition: Is this a ghost?. TobiasSchwarz

This is a very interesting video. There definitely seems to be something there... but what? It is a dark, semi-transparent shape that roils around quickly, almost in a cloud-like manner. It is positioned behind some of the wood beams and in front of others, indicating that it is really there -- a figure of some substance.

This video, captured by the East Tennessee Paranormal Research Society, was taken in the ladies room of the Bijou Theater in Knoxville, where patrons reported possible paranormal activity. The video shows an anomaly briefly and quickly moving across the bottom of the screen. Is it a ghost, a piece of clothing, a reflection... something else?

In this video, posted by ParanormalCamera, we see what appears to be news footage of the aftermath of a car accident. The introductory text says that it was a fatal accident in which 2 people were injured and 1 person died, and that it took place in central Spain. As the wrecked red car is being towed off the road, we see a transparent figure walking away from the car to the right.

Here is an interesting video taken in a Savannah, Georgia cemetery on December 31, 2008. It appears to show a small child, possibly a boy, running in the background. But then it seems like he leaps up into a tree in a rather impossible manner, then drops to the ground and vanishes. Has the camera merely captured a real boy running combined with a strange illusion? Or has it videotaped a real ghost?

This video was recorded at a private residence by McLennan County Paranormal Investigations, and they have this to say about it: "This was captured on last week's investigation. The clients said that they saw a figure sitting on this couch in the past. This video is taken from one of our static cams. It looks like a figure that passes from left to right and then sits down on the end of the couch."

Episode Two ventures into the Gibson Mansion in Woodland, California. The stately home was built in the early 1800s by William Gibson and stayed in the family until 1960 when the last family member died. The building is now owned by Yolo County as a historical museum and features some original furniture and clothing, around which the haunting is thought to occur. William Gibson reportedly died in the house and people have reported cold spots and uneasy feelings.

The security cameras in an IGA grocery store caught a package of Roll-Ups mysteriously landing in the middle of an aisle. The store owner says no one was in the store at the time and the aisles were clear. Yet at 11:30, the package of Roll-Ups seems to be thrown into the aisle.

Kinect-ing with Ghosts

Kinect ghost
Kinect ghost. Darkness Radio

In this set-up, the Kinect, with its motion-sensing capabilities, apparently creates a stick-figure representation of the people it is aimed at. Here we see the stick figure of "Susan" sitting in a chair, but also a smaller, child-sized stick figure sitting in the chair next to her. But there is no visible person sitting in the empty chair. So what is the Kinect picking up?

Ogden Poltergeist

In this security camera video from an undisclosed location in Ogden, Utah, a plate seems to fly off a shelf and land several feet away. Two men, identified as security guards, soon show up to investigate. But is this a staged hoax, which could have been accomplished with fishing line? Or are we seeing genuine poltergeist activity?

This video was recorded off a TV screen by a man and his family who were watching coverage of the protests on the streets of Cairo, Egypt on February 2, 2011. The video appears to show what looks like the ghostly green image of a rider on horseback moving through the crowd and fading away. Is it a real ghost? Or just a weird reflection?

The Del Mar Race Track in Del Mar, California has experienced quite a bit of haunting and poltergeist activity over the years. Recently, when the South Coast Paranormal team investigated, they recorded this interesting video in the track's first-floor pub. A dark, shadowy figure crosses the area, followed by a flash of light. Is there a logical explanation? Or does this video show a genuine ghost or shadow person?

The Woodland Opera House Ghost

Woodland Opera House
Woodland Opera House. Strange Phenomenon

Episode One takes us to the Woodland Opera House in Woodland, California. It was originally built 1884, rebuilt in 1896 after a fire, closed in 1913, and renovated for modern use in 1989 for concerts, children's shows, dance recitals, and the like. And that's when the ghost stories began. Staff have experienced a cloud-like apparition, equipment tampering, and the smell of smoke, which is theorized could be from the spirit of William Porter, a firefighter who died trying to rescue the building. Other phenomena included a vanishing woman in the audience and a voice that says, "Go away!"

Yorkshire Victorian Ghost Video

A ghostly looking female figure that appears to be in Victorian dress passes across the doorway, looking toward the camera, then fades away. We are to assume, I suppose, that the ghost is a child or staff member from that orphanage.
