'Ghost' flies at camera in medieval graveyard

A paranormal investigator has captured intriguing footage of a fast-moving mist flying towards him.
Tony Ferguson had been investigating reports of a 'negative presence' in the cemetery at St Mary's Church in Hampshire, England when he captured the anomaly on film (viewable below).

"I don't usually investigate cemeteries," he said. "I don't believe that just because people are buried there, they must be haunted."

"But a few people got in touch to tell me they were concerned about their loved ones who are buried there. Every time they went they could feel this negative presence and it was making them very uncomfortable."

During his visit, the 33-year-old claimed that he had felt 'unwanted' and reported hearing an audible 'whooshing' sound that he has since attributed to the mist in the video.

But did he really capture evidence of a ghost ?

While the footage certainly does appear to show something mist-like moving towards the camera, it could be argued that cigarette smoke (or even another person's breath if it was a cold night) could have created a similar effect if someone else happened to be there at the time.

Tony however remains adamant that it was something paranormal.

"He is clearly a very controlling spirit and doesn't want people visiting the graveyard," he said.

Possibly Stereologist, but I'm skeptical. There is no indication of any fog in any other part of the picture. Also, a focused beam would have to be very narrow to produce that effect by illuminating fog, and would be blocked by the surrounding foliage. I think this is an ambient, reflected light effect triggering a false registration in the low-light sensor on the camera, rather than an actual physical object (e.g. fog) being directly illuminated. Or, of course, it could have been a ghost !

If you look closely to the left side of the footage the so called ghost has a reflection too

The lens is fogged and the background lights are in a fog - at least that is what I interpret.

I think the creator just sped up and reversed footage of cigarette smoke/vape exhale. It's a simple, low budget bit of fakery and all you need is a cig/vape pen, a camera, and some basic video editing software.

No.there is a flare on the left side of the image, as you say.But it is not co-ordinated. It is a reaction by the camera sensor - aided no doubt by "picture correction" algorithms - to a passing distant light source. Jeez Lousie.... the only "ghosts" here are created in the minds of people who WANT there to be ghosts. Answer THIS... or shut up. Who took the video footage, and what are THEIR opinions on what THEY saw ? If you can't answer that, then you are all just jerking off .

Well, I think the footage is cool. And it's something, I like to explore, (yeah, multiple viewings. ) And whether I either have thoughts that it could be a 'ghost', or I want it to be, I'll leave that up to what I think and want to believe. I find myself, hall-way thinking it could be. Part of me seems to see a 'figure' flying right through the camera person, and that it could be a person's head and shoulders and arms. Could be.............. I'm just saying that for my own benefit. And yes, it could also be a mist, or smoke from a cigarette. I also think, it also couldn't be either... [More]
