Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's The 2009 Most Haunted State To Hunt Ghost In America
The picture was taken by BBC photographer Chris Sandys, who said: "I don't believe in ghosts myself, but this is strange."
Mr Sandys, who was taking images for a story on the museum's new Ghosts In The Attic exhibition, added: "As soon as I'd taken a panoramic photo, I reviewed the image on the camera and straight away noticed this strange formation of light, shaped like a figure, through the doorway in the next room.
"Without moving I did a few takes to try and work out what had caused it but couldn't see anything. It was so weird." Read More Here Now>>>>>>>>>
Could the fact that a location is stigmatized and this makes it haunted?
Ghost hunting equipment and methods
Ghost hunters use a variety of tools and techniques to investigate alleged paranormal activity. While there is no universal acceptance among ghost hunters of the following methodologies, a number of these are commonly utilized by ghost hunting groups.
Hand-held infrared temperature sensor of the type used by some "ghost hunters"
Paranormal Research Equipment
Still and video photography - using infrared, digital, night vision, and even disposable film cameras to capture evidence of possible visual manifestations, such as orbs, mist, apparitions, and ectoplasm.
EMF measurement - using electromagnetic field meters to detect possible unexplained magnetic fields which some attribute to the presence of ghosts and spirits, and at times used to spirit communication.
Temperature measurement - using infrared, and thermal cameras, imaging video cameras, and/or hand-held infrared surface and ambient temperature sensors to detect changes in the environment, such as "cold spots", which some believe accompany paranormal activity.
Digital and analog audio recording - to capture anomalous audio, including voices and sounds that may be interpreted as electronic voice phenomena, which some theorize are attempts at communication by paranormal entities.
Geiger counter - to measure fluctuations in radiation which some believe will point to a disturbance in spirit energy.
Ion Meters - to detect an excess of negative ions which some feel are associated with paranormal activity.
Infrared and/or ultrasonic motion sensors - to detect possible anomalous movement within a given area, or to assist in creating a controlled environment where any human movement is detected.
Air quality monitoring equipment - to assess the levels of gases such a carbon monoxide which are thought contribute to reports of paranormal activity. (Also see carbon monoxide poisoning).
Infra sound monitoring equipment - to assess the level of sound vibrations below 20Hz which is thought to contribute to reports of paranormal activity.
Dowsing rods - usually constructed of brass and bent into an L-shape, dowsing rods may be used by those who feel they help indicate the presence of ghosts and spirits.
Psychics - trance mediums or "sensitive" individuals thought to have the ability to identify and make contact with spiritual entities. (This practice is considered controversial among groups that prefer a scientific approach)
Demonologists, or Clergy Members - individuals who may say prayers, give blessings, or perform rituals for the purpose of cleansing a location of alleged ghosts, demons, poltergeists, or "negative energy". (Also considered controversial among groups that prefer a scientific approach)
Real "Ghost hunting" is the process of investigating locations said to be haunted by ghosts. Today virtual ghost hunting is becoming a hot new trend. From watching Real haunted Ghost Cams to studying Ghost Photos on line.
Typically, a "ghost hunting party" will involve two to dozen individuals who work as paranormal investigation team, in an attempt to collect or document real evidence of paranormal activity. Ghost hunters often employ electronic equipment of various types, such as EMF meters, digital thermometers, infrared, thermographic, and night vision cameras, handheld video cameras, digital audio recorders, and computers. Organized teams of ghost hunters are also called paranormal investigation teams.
There is no scientifically testable and verifiable evidence in favor of the existence of ghosts, despite centuries of interest in the subject Easy access to information on the world wide web, movies such as Ghostbusters, and TV shows, particularly Ghost Hunters, are thought to be partly responsible for the current boom in ghost hunting.
There are now hundreds of Internet message boards and web sites dedicated to the pursuit of hunting real ghosts. Many of the sites declare themselves free of Ouija boards, which are frowned upon as unscientific among some paranormal enthusiasts. Along with ghost tracking tips, the sites discuss everything from high-tech equipment to analysis of investigations.
Many sites feature ghost photos and videos as evidence, often appearing as blurry mist or blobs of light, called “orbs” by insiders. Similarly, audio recordings are referred to as "EVPs," or electronic voice phenomena, sometimes sounding like voices amid background noise.
Scores of small businesses selling ghost-hunting equipment, ghost investigation services, and even ghost counseling, are booming outside of their prime season, Halloween. Several companies recently introduced new devices billed as ghost detectors, along with the traditional electromagnetic field detectors, white noise generators, and infrared motion sensors. The paranormal boom is such that some small ghost-hunting related businesses are enjoying increased profits through podcast and web site advertising, books, DVDs, videos, and other commercial enterprises.
In the U.S., the popularity of ghost hunting has led to some property damage and injuries, according to news sources. Unaware that a "spooky home" in Worthington, Ohio was occupied, a group of teenagers went to check it out. The homeowner fired shots to scare off the trespassers, shooting a girl in the head. Another group of teenagers in Peru, Maine admitted to accidentally starting a fire while hunting for ghosts inside of a former wood mill.
Trespassing or vandalizing ghost hunters have also been arrested in cemeteries in New Orleans, Gettysburg, Galveston, and other cities around the world.
Among ghost hunters, some are also devotees of urban exploration, a growing hobby where enthusiasts venture into abandoned structures such as hospitals, asylums, and sanatoriums. These ghost hunters tend to push the limits at times. Abandoned buildings can be and are really dangerous.
Individuals engaged in ghost hunting and paranormal investigation proclaim varying motives for their activities.
Some ghost hunters consider themselves hobbyists whose primary motivation is the excitement of the hunt and the thrill of possibly experiencing something supernatural. Many of these individuals enjoy spending significant time pursuing their hobby.
Others consider themselves serious researchers who follow what they feel are scientific protocols and share documentation of their research with other groups in an effort to discover proof that ghosts exist. They often go about their pursuit in a prescribed manner in order to seek evidence of paranormal activity at a given location, or debunk "false positive" reports of hauntings. Many established groups fall into this category.
Still others consider themselves to be providing a service, and focus their investigation on offering comfort and assistance to individuals who feel they are experiencing unexplained or paranormal activity at a home or other location. These investigators approach a location with the goal of alleviating the fear and discomfort of the occupants by listening to their experiences and providing advice and reassurance.
Some regional organizations, such as Ghost Research of Indiana, maintain that there are four basic classifications of ghost hunters.
"Scientific", proclaiming to prove or disprove paranormal phenomena such as ghosts through the use of what they feel are scientific protocols.
"Interactive", proclaiming to use a combination of "science" and practiced beliefs to form an answer about alleged phenomena. This group can include students of cryptozoology, UFO's, conspiracies, etc.
"Chasers/Busters", avid believers out to prove by any means that a phenomenon does exist, even regardless of evidence.
"Religious/Spiritual", believers who specialize in religious or occult beliefs and who feel that they oppose negative forces such as demons and evil presences.
Ghost hunting organizations say that most groups are a mix of several differing outlooks and typically advertise their services online but do not charge for investigations in hopes of finding new and interesting places to explore.
While interest in the paranormal heats up, so does the competition between ghost hunting organizations. As many groups scramble for publicity, rivalry and feuds are common.
Commercially-active groups members on chat boards they often attempt to discredit the other's legitimacy. Or down right accuse others as perpetrating hoax's and out right frauds. So be fore warned and choose your alliances with an open mind.
