Footage of a ghostly figure on the pitch during the German Cup final in Berlin has gone viral.

Quote

Sightings of apparitions during televised sporting events seem to be on the rise lately with April's sighting of a strange shadow moving across the stands at a Bolivian football match making way for a similar sighting at this week's cup final in Berlin.

Having watched this I think it's an internal reflection in the camera. If you watch it follows the same movements at the same time as the player who seems to be running towards it. A technical fault and nothing more.

Yep, looks like a reversed image (reflection) of the player in yellow who crosses the center line at the 2 second mark...

That's what I thought too but then I watched it three more times and it does not do the same thing as the player.

What do you suggest it is oversword amd how do you come to that conclusion? I should point out that I am a film maker who has worked for the bbc and oscar winning producer David Puttnam and IMO it's a bog standard reflection.

Sports broadcasts like that have many layers of video that are shown simultaneously.  The primary image, score graphics, ads, PiP, enhancements for field markings, and the telestrator all contribute to the final product.  It is entirely possible that a layer was diffused and presented in error.  Depending on how the camera was situated, there is also the possibility of a reflection off of glass or the lens itself.

Fascinating video, loved it...however, I would agree with 'sinewave' on this one.

I don't suggest it's anything, but if you watch closely it does not duplicate the movements of the player that it is the supposed reflection of.  close but not quite.

Edit to add once they have crossed each others paths there is a large difference in movement.

It could have been from another camera in another part of the stadium.  Any camera or graphics device can be used to assemble the final image.  This was probably a mistake by the guys in the "truck".

It doesn't follow the same path as the player on the right, it moves faster and at a different angle.

Dang truck guys!  If they panned they could have clearly seen it was a raptor.

They were too busy watching the game.  A nude woman could have appeared and they would not have noticed unless she was carrying beer and sandwiches.
