IR Orb - The orb in this photo was seen through the viewfinder of a camcorder just prior to being photographed. This indicates that it was a result of some type of energy that was visible to the camcorders CCD element.

Streaks - This photo was taken a few moments after another group that was using a ouija board left the area.

Orange Light - This photo is an anomalous orange light taken at Bachelor's Grove Cemetery on September 28, 1998 at approximately 9:30 pm, temp. was approx. 50f. This photo was taken on a Canon Z-115 using Kodak Gold 400. Investigators on this trip were Andrew, J.T. and myself. This was the 1 year anniversary of the investigation where I got the apparition of the face in the bush (this picture soon to be posted).

Ecto Swirls - This photo was also taken at Bachelor's Grove, on the same day as the first, at approx. 8:30 pm - all other info is the same. This picture shows some movement to the far right edge. Possibly ectoplasmic swirls? However, the light in the trees appears somewhat blurred, so it is hard to determine exactly what caused the movement. The key is that the light through the trees is blurred in a straight motion while the image to the right makes definite jogs, as if it were in constant motion.

Pulsating Anomalous Light 1 - see notes below

Pulsating Anomalous Light 2 (updated) - see notes below

Pulsating Anomalous Light 3 - see notes below

Pulsating Anomalous Light 4 - see notes below

Equipment used: Canon Sure Shot Z-115 using Kodak Gold 400 speed film

Notes: Regarding these four pictures:

These four pictures show the presence of an anomaly that appears as a pulsating strand of light. It is my belief that this is actually the trail of the anomaly's movement. This movement is shown by the breaks (black areas) within the strand- the same breaks that make it appear as if it is pulsating. Notice also the fact that in one photo the path turns back on itself, then carries on its course. If you follow the patterns of its movement, you can see that the anomaly appears to travel closer to and away from the camera. This depth of movement discounts the possibility of a damaged photograph or negative: if either was damaged, the mark would appear as a scratch on the surface, there would be no forward/back movement, only left to right markings.

Judging by the tree in the pictures we can see that this particular anomaly travelled a great distance in an incredibly short period of time - the shutter speed is about 1/60th of one second! Also, at no time during this investigation was the light captured here visible to the naked eye. While all of these images came from the same 24 exposure roll of film, they were NOT consecutive frames: the images appear on the negatives in frames 4, 12, 19 and 21. The entire roll was taken at random during a 30 minute period. Therefore, considering the amount of time that would have passed between the first and last photographs, we can safely assume that this anomaly was active for at least 20 minutes. Unfortunately, it was late and I was tired. If I had stayed, how many more times would this anomaly have appeared? Who knows how many minutes or hours it remained active after my departure from the cemetery?

Tree - This is a wide angle view of the central area of Bachelor's Grove. While it is not possible to see on this scanned version of the photo, there is a strange face-like image on the trunk area of the tree that appears in the middle of the picture. The image below shows the location of the face-like shape, as well as two closeup views of the image itself.

Tree Face - The middle view of the face-like shape in this picture is as it was scanned on auto adjust settings. The right view was color, brightness, and contrast adjusted strictly to highlight the image.

Strange Pattern - Perhaps coincidental, but strange nonetheless, is the pattern taken by the evaporated moisture on the Fulton stone here.
