'Light creature' anomaly shows up in photograph

By T.K. Randall

What exactly is this thing ? Image Credit: Gakk1023 /
A chance photograph taken by a random attendee at a rave many years ago shows something profoundly unusual.
The peculiar image was recently posted up on our forum by one of our members - Gakk1023 - who was keen to learn more about the image having held onto it for many years.

"I've had this image for several years and have never really sought out answers from others," he wrote. "I've googled a million things, but never turn up anything. I'm sure it has a very logical explanation, just don't have enough experience with light oddities or camera tricks to know."

"WAY back when I attended a super cool warehouse rave (and I was under the influence if that matters lol). There was some great DJs and live music and people were recording and taking pictures on their phones. I had someone I don't know come up to me and ask me if I knew what this was."

"I didn't know what to say, but asked for the photo. I held onto it for years because it looks cool."
The image itself shows what looks like a neon blue 'snake' wrapped around his body, with an additional multi-legged 'creature' sitting on top of his head.

While it's quite possible that the whole thing is simply a photographic anomaly, it is certainly unusual.

Exactly what conditions could give rise to such a specific optical effect remain unclear.

Yep, that's a very good interpretation.  And it shows how having the EXIF would be handy - I'm guessing that this was in very low light, and the camera has used a long exposure, eg of 2-10 seconds, but has also fired the flash.  So you end up with a snapshot that the flash illuminated, superimposed over the time exposure during which the guy swung around his light sabre or whatever it was to create the arced path - you'll note it is 'broken' roughly where his neck and arm could have obscured it.  I'd say the other 'thing' above/on his head could be someone else's phone, being used to take a...

Worked in clubs and played many raves and club nights and I think it's a moving blue or black light catching the inside of the lense. The thing on his head is not just on his head. It stretches out and is on the two girls either side. It may be reflecting then hitting the lense but that blue just makes me think lighting rig.

Thank you everyone for your contributions and comments.  I honestly wasn't sure what to make of this image, but now I have several things to consider. It was definitely strange and I wanted to share it and see what others thought.  I figured it could've just been some weird lighting effect or camera malfunction that I had not thought of. Nonetheless, I still think it's a pretty cool image. Thanks again.

thats the ghost of a Hallucigenia Sparsa, probably in ancient times there was a sea bed.

This is the 1st time I've seen anything even close to what I saw in a Casino in Laughlin NV in 2014. Me and my Girlfriend  are standing back in the corner of this 120 year old hotel casino people watching.. not drinking, or anything else.. When out of nowhere whizzing past me in a flash was a ribbon of blue light. The thing is, the second I saw it shoot past me, waist high like a blue bed sheet it went straight into my Girlfriends leg, she grabbed her leg at that instant and said, "****! my leg just got like electrocuted! what the hell"..   She did not see it, but felt it.. I didnt feel it b... [More]

That reminds me of something that happened in the 80's.   I opened the dryer to get the clothes out and when I bent down to pull them out I felt something like an electric shock go through my head.  I stood up thinking there must be a short or something but my hands were covered in an electric blue light.  It was not like the photo posted here, it was more transient.   I held my hands up to look at them and there was an arc between them.   It lasted only a few minutes then everything seemed normal. The really weird thing is that the next day I told my friend at work and he insisted I meet... [More]

Well there you go now we got demons hanging all over us sucking out our soul. Zoom in on the other people there it’s a glow necklace or something similar hit with a laser.

Years ago, my dad , sister and I went for a evening drive. We went up Bulverde Road north of San Antonio. I don't know if they saw it or not, but i saw this bluish light by  this bush, Was not  ball lightning or anything, but a bluish glow. Should have mentioned it but didn't. Was it supernatural maybe. The area had native americans  and settlers there, and  further up there was  a big stone mile maker from stage coach days ,  with the milage to Blanco etc. on it. This disappeared  when it made the news papers back in the late 1990s, early 2000. Another time I saw something like this wa... [More]

It's synaesthesia.  Not all synaesthetes see the same thing but the motion out of time synchronicity with the universe is still greater for hominoids.  The great ape makes profound use of this in its uhhh tragic use of language, the first truly linear oriented programming and why we have the unfathomable result of the circle the length of pi the length of pi at two pi.  Roughly a pie by a pi and the magic when you first multiply this number by two explains why it is transcendental, it's enacted upon by a seeming algorithmic process that is purely calculatable to exact specificity knowing ab...
