Yeah it's hard to tell if it is real.

it looks pretty real to me, but there are several ways they could have done it...the picture could be of a veiw out a window, and the person could be a reflection in the window...or it could be a projector on the window...or maybe they could have found just the photo and used an eraser or something to fade it away and make it look like there's a ghost.

Similar pictures were passed around after hurricane Hugo hit. They were found to be fake. We can only hope that it is real, though.

Due to the 3-D reality of apparation in the foreground of existing power - lines, (one of which actually traverses image), I find it difficult to pronounce this a fake. If she is indeed a true apparation, then she is one of the most profound and beautiful images I have ever beheld and I thank the individual who captured the image in 1916, that I might view it in 2004.

What's the apparition? It looks like a woman with a baby.,like when someone is laying on a sofa or bed with a baby on the top of the body.This photo looks real enough to me.I think is authentic and hard to fake.

What in the heck is Josiah talking about?

What I am talking about is the fact that the power - line, shown in the original B & W photo above, traverses the image by going "over" it in a three dimensional foreground ... not "behind" it, as if the photo had been superimposed. Unless the photo has been manipulated by some modern technology unbeknown to me, I say this is real and is one heck of a sky - apparation of a mid - 17th century woman.
