Ghost sightings are not as uncommon as people think. Many studies have been published focusing on ghost sightings alone and some of them claim that there has been a significant increase in these type of sightings in the past 25 years alone. There are also people who dedicate their whole lives in the study of ghosts and other paranormal activities who are sometimes called paranormalists.
Although Halloween may be just a couple of months from now, but it seems like eerie videos of possible ghost sightings choose no time to present themselves.
A recent closed – circuit television, or CCTV, footage of a seemingly normal street went viral because it claims that there was a shadow that looks like a man crossing the street and completely disregarding the cars and motorists passing by. This suspicious shadow remained unaffected despite the constant flow of motorists.
The CCTV footage may have been in shades of gray, but it was clear that the shadow of the walking man was completely different from the other human beings captured in the shot.
The video was said to be taken sometimes in the afternoon from outside a shop along a street in Pangasinan, Philippines last June 20.
When the staff and security guard saw the footage, they were all alarmed and confused about what their CCTV caught on tape and thought that maybe the shadow was of a ghost of someone with unfinished business.
After the shadow first appeared crossing the street in the afternoon, it was also reported that it showed up again on tape around 13 hours later.
Many netizens got scared by what they saw but many speculated about the authenticity of the video especially since they claimed that it looked like the CCTV footage was taken from an old security camera model that still used tape.
This happens a lot with older security cameras that’s still use tape. When it just gets recorded over and over some images will overlap causing a “ghost image” if you will,” one netizen said.
CCTV often records over the same tape this tape has degraded to the point when a previous recording bled over from the previous night.” another netizen explained.
So obvious that this was a mediocre editing job by superimposing one video over another. Anyone that thinks this stuff real in the age of CGI and video editing needs to wake up,” a user jokingly said.
