Eighteen seconds in, when you see it you'll excrete masonry.

Obviously there's a rational explanation for this appearance. How does BAUT weigh in?

Appearance of what?

Right now I'm using a small screen (laptop) which might make a difference, but there is a video as people walk around empty rooms, and it ends without anybody in the video saying anything. On first viewing I didn't see anything interesting.

I watched again and . . . I still didn't see anything.

Then I read the comments. According to some comments, there is supposed to be something in a window at some point. Well, with that hint, and the hint to be looking at around the eighteen second mark, in one window I see what might be a distortion of buildings or might look a bit like a face. Maybe somebody with a bigger screen might see something more impressive, but I was underwhelmed.

So, is it a screen issue? Is there a photoshopped face that I couldn't resolve, or is this what I suspect, a case of pareidolia? Maybe some closeups of individual frames would help.

Does this face-like thing ring a bell?

I'm on a laptop as well, I don't know how small your screen might be but my computer is old. I added arrows and circled it for assistance. About 18 seconds into the video but nothing else happens after that.

That last one helps. This is a small tablet/laptop combo screen, so a youtube video doesn't show much detail. I'm still not sure there is enough detail in the image to require an actual face (photoshopped, reflected, or whatever). I've seen some pretty good facelike features before.

Edit: I've looked at the pulled image in an editor. I'm going with photoshop/manipulation.

Could it, you know, be a reflection? Maybe?

No. Must be a ghost. Yeah. Yeah, that's it.

1. A reflection of what? As the camera is panned around the room you see that she's the only one there and I'd assume such a clear reflection would only come from someone being a foot away from the window.

2. Look at the other videos posted, they're all boring real estate oriented videos with absolutely no woo-woo going on in them. Either it's a really elaborate set-up where they want to look legit and throw in this video as a curveball or it just happens that there's a strange mix of light and shadow causing the image of a face to appear in a window.

Heck, I would've thought it was suspect if the cameraperson saw the face and started calling everyone over to see what was going on. Just surprised that it wasn't seen in the first place.

My theory is the windows across the street or a billboard make the face appear in the window. Still pretty cool.

I actually don't think that looks like a face.
It looks like half of the famous Cydonian mesa, distorted and blown up if you squint.

So what about the face? What about that hideous dingy white paint? Whoa!

well, what ever its origin, I think it looks a bit more than a blob.

Reminds me of another strange video.


This is a car advertisement from Germany. When they finished filming the ad, the film editor noticed something
moving along the side of the car, like a ghostly white mist.

Watch the front end of the car closely as it clears the trees in the middle of the screen and youŽll see the white mist crossing in front of the car then following it along the road......Spooky!

Is it a ghost, or is it simply mist? You decide. If you listen to the ad, youŽll even hear the camera man whispering in the background about it near the end of the
commercial.

A little creepy but pretty cool!

Try again. At the end of the video, the series of affiliated videos are all title variations of "video of a ghost"

Without knowing what or who else was in the room that could be reflected, what was across the street visible through the window, etc, there's no way to know how such an image could come about. Therefore it HAS to be a REAL GHOST!!!!!1111ONE! ;)

It's a billboard across the street, as Eif87 commented. ;)

If you notice the face moves with the building in the background, so it is probably attached to it.

It looks like there's a perspective change as the camera turns, though, doesn't it? Maybe it's just me.

BTW, this video (http://www.break.com/1408/sitter-cam-catches-ghost.html) will really make you wonder - I don't know what a rational explanation for this would be. This edit points out where and when to watch. Pretty creepy.

No it's not just you, it looks like the perspective is changing to me but I'm sure it's a trick of the light.

You need to be made of ironic stuff to have Carl Sagan's photo make you believe in ghosts.

Did you not see the ";-D"? It means "This is a joke and I'm winking and grinning at it.
But yes, that would be as ironic as getting run over by the Cash Cab while going to cash a check for five bucks.
