It's a cloud reflection people.  Let's keep it simple and logical.


We know it's an optical illsusion....that don't mean it's not a great pic.

We don't KNOW that it's an illusion caused by a cloud, we're guessing.

If it is an illusion, it's the best most defined one I have ever seen.

It sure looks like a cloud in the wide shot.  When I enlarge that section it looks as though someone has propped a picture up behind the glass.  In any event, I don't think it is a ghost.

It almost looks like the zoomed in picture is photoshopped.  I don't remember if the article stated what type of camera was used, but I doubt it was good enough to produce that much detail when zoomed in.  Why isn't it more pixilated?

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

This did not "freak me out".  It immediately made think that the owner of that building or flat has pasted a paper poster on one of the window-blinds-(shades?).  The other two windows seem to have shades of the same colour but without the poster.
The window shades ar eup in the picture...they are the white things at the top of the windows.....I don't know what this could be though. I have never seen a cloud that makes that shape but I don't know if it would be a ghost either.

Does anyone seriously think that the Department of Conservation would set up a poster of a ghost in a historic building they own? seriously? And yet not one person has seen it before or since. If that is what DOC is doing with my tax dollars i would be annoyed.

Ummm, yes,  The National Park Service let TAPS and Ghost Adventures investigate some of their facilities.  I am disappointed they had to resort to that but they have to do what they have to do.  NPS funding has been brutalized by the crappy economy.

Well, did the national park service then set up fake pictures of a ghost to try and trick TAPS? NO! Because if they did then they wouldn't be worthy of the government funding they recieve.

Here in NZ DOC is completely funded by the govt. to look after all national parks and historically significant places. And maybe they would let a ghost investigation team into some of their properties, but they would never provide the evidence.

I agree, I think it's photoshopped. The enlarged image of the 'ghost' is crystal clear, yet the window frames etc appear blurry. Also if you look at the outlines of the window frames, they are all dead straight except for the parts that surround the 'ghost' you can see that they have little chunks or indents taken out of the frames, they are wobbly lines, not straight, where the photoshopper has accidently gone to close to the window frame and smeared over it, creating those indents.

I think fake!

I think there were definitely some deliberate fakes and at the very least the were sure not shy about playing up the stories!  Some of the rangers begged off which I thought was commendable but others were right there playing the game.

Yes, I noticed that too.  The face becomes clearer as the image is enlarged, and that ain't right!  Someone's been playin' with that pic.

That is much more realistic then a govt. organisation playing jokes on people.
