Ghosts can be active at any time.. night or day - but if your looking at capturing evidence using the equipment we currently have available to buy, its better to use Full Spectrum Cameras, Night Vision (Infrared) - or even thermo cameras.. in the dark.

We've made contact with spirits in both.. but to try to 'prove it'.. or at least get some sort of evidence its best at night - when things are still and quiet. I did an investigation at the Edinburgh Vaults (Scotland,UK) during the day - but as it was underground it was just the same. Once we'd got the energies moving about a bit with some encouragement (music) - the invo was no different to being at night, even tho it was 10 in the morning.

I guess night investigations might make sense in heavily populated areas, but coming from a very small town in the middle of nowhere, I've always found it made more sense to investigate during the day. All the places I've investigated are pretty much just as quiet during the day as they are at night. I guess the best times to investigate vary depending on location.

I don't have any academic background or qualification or life.
However, I can absorb all substances into the body from my eyes.

I suppose it might be easier to see something invisible in the dark than in sunlight.

I've recently started wondering why investigations of supposedly haunted areas always seem to have to be conducted at night. Being in the dark tends to put people on edge and more likely to see things that aren't there, especially since they can't see clearly. Wouldn't investigating at night only muddy any visual evidence that might be found?
It's not like ghosts only come out at night. I once investigated a house in broad daylight and saw some very strange things. Admittedly, I am only a very casual investigator, but does anyone actually have a good reason for investigating at night other than "it makes it scarier"?


Many have asked this before...

I even asked, and point out that if you watch those fraud shows ( Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, Haunted Collector, Destination Truth, Fact or Faked ) the places they go investigate, when they do the interview first.....9 out of 10 times the witnesses saw things either with the lights on, or in the day time.....Almost all ways during working hours or giving tours....

So, as everyone said, it is for the creepy factor, and easier to say " did you see that " when it is dark.

It's harder to see Grant moving shtuff around too.

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

Haha. When I was a kid I idolized the people from Ghost Hunters, but then I got a fully developed brain.

Horsehoe bend military park  ( Alabama) is a good place to hunt in the daytime...You don't need darkness to get creeped out in that place...

We evolved as diurnal creatures mainly dependent on vision.  Naturally we are in danger at night, and naturally that scares us.

I have heard that we see ghosts with the rod cells of our eyes- those that we use for night vision. In daylight they are switched off so we will not see the ghost that is looming over our shoulder at this very minute.  ** ow something touched me!**
That's why cats- with very good night vision- will always seem to be watching something creeping through your room...

Well hannah-s, I don't know how much facts there is in your suggestion, I don't think there has been any research that has been done about the way human eyes can see ghosts. Nonethless, it could be a possibility but I don't think that's why Paranormal Investigators ghost hunt at night.

There is all kind of reasons for that among others it may be easier to have access to some public locations at night to investigate, without any disturbances. There is no customers or visitors at night so everyone is happy this way.
