Ghost Photo: The Woman Watching

Does the photo above show a ghost? That’s what one Reddit user wants to know. The following comes from the site’s r/paranormal section. The OP writes:

“These photos were taken in 2005 with a really crapshoot digital camera. It was just my sister and her friend Tommy in the room at the time. The photos were taken within seconds of each other, the one on the left was taken with a flash, the one on the right without. In the photo on the right, you can see, CLEAR AS DAY, the face of one person and the opposite hand of another. You can even make out very round glasses on the face! No one else was with them.

Growing up in our parents’ house, we always had strange things happen. Noises, things being moved, that kind of stuff. Maybe this was the person behind all of the activity?”

What do you think of the photo? Critics say the image has been altered, others believe it shows a spirit.

Reader Submission: The Demonic Entity

shadow person

“I lived in New Baden, Illinois with my boyfriend and our four-year-old daughter. We lived in a green mobile home haunted by a demonic entity.

When we first got to the home, I saw something shoot down the hallway. I said, ‘There’s something in here with us, something not human.’ My boyfriend said I just needed to get used to the new surroundings, but I know what I saw. It was a black, human-shaped shadow, and it ran down the hall every time I took a shower. My daughter’s closet was on the other side of the wall, and she saw him too.

Every night, I closed my daughter’s closet door before she went to bed. Every morning, I found it open. I said, ‘Baby, if you’re afraid of the bad man in the closet, why do you open the door?’ She said, ‘I don’t. He does.’

Ghost Photo: Witch of the Ward House

George Corwin was sheriff of Salem during the infamous witch trials and a man who sent many accused witches to their death. One of the accused was a man named Giles Corey who was pressed to death beneath a pile of stones and reportedly cursed George with his last agonized breath.

Today, the Joshua Ward House stands where Corwin’s home once did and is reportedly haunted by witches (or the men and women he accused). A real estate allegedly agent took this photo while preparing the home for a listing. Does it show a ghostly witch?

Ghostly Submarine: The USS Thresher

On April 10, 1963, the USS Thresher sank during a routine test dive, taking 129 souls down with her. Three years later, a family out on a yacht reportedly saw the doomed submarine slip beneath the waves once more.

“Looking into the wind and spray, the five-strong family saw the name Thresher painted on the side of the submarine and saw it was badly damaged along the waterline,” Alan Wood writes in his book, Military Ghosts.

“Suddenly, the submarine rose bodily into the air and sank quickly beneath the rough running sea. Two sailors visible on the submarine did not move as it sank and went down in their positions.”

After returning to shore, the yacht skipper discovered that the Thresher had sank in the same spot he and his family had seen the submarine. Are the victims’ ghosts still out there today, 54 years later?
