Hello Lealeigh and Manafon1,

I appreciate your response to my dilemma in search of the footage of the ghosts caught on dashcam.
I understand all the different thoughts associated with ghost sightings in general. I am one of those people that needs proof, and even then, unless it happens to me, or that I witness them first hand, I also find it hard believing. In this case, my gut instincts say it's real. (Once again, I'm not an expert, I'm just going by my instincts).
Thank you both again for you responses in helping me out.

SWS. 😘

Hello Valkricry,

Thank you for posting the link to the article/ video footage published by the sun. I watched everything and can't help but feel they were human spirits and not droplets. (I'm no expert of course, but my instinct says it's real) Especially with the version of the footage published by the sun.
Thank you so much for all the ground work you've done in putting all the links together. It's exactly what I tried so hard to find online, but not knowing the place of the battlefield, I had no success.

Once again,
Thank you. SWS 😘

Manafon1, I think you did an excellent piece of analytical work on the Civil War ghost footage. Wholeheartedly agree with your conclusions.

Hey Miandra, 😊 I haven't been on this site as often as I use to be for the past year or so now, due to how crazy its been around my house lately. And now with this pandemic going on, it's only gotten crazier, now having to help my 3 kids with their online schooling from home, since school's are not fully opened anymore. Anyways, I've really missed being on here, reading everyone's stories they've sent in, and just talking to the regular people on here. What you said about how you use to get so scared when you were young, when dealing with the paranormal, that you would freeze to the point of not moving, made me think of how I was as a child when dealing with it. I remember I would get so scared that I would hide under my blankets, despite how hot I'd get under there, or could barely breathe, afraid of what I would see, or what would happen next. I had a theory as a child, that by sleeping in the dark, I wouldn't have to worry about seeing something that would scare me, even though I could still feel it there watching me, knowing where it was, and how close it would be to me. When most kids that age would prefer to at least have a night light on. It was very difficult for me still, because granted I had that theory, I was afraid of the dark, so it was terrifying for me to deal with at such a young age. Honestly, even until this day, I'm still afraid of the dark, but having my husband next to me, is what gives me strength, and helps me not be as afraid. But if I were to go it alone, I would not be able to sleep in the dark. I at least have to have a tv on to help me feel comfortable. I admire that you are able to have found the strength to be able to face your fears of that now. That's something you should feel proud to have overcome. I remember believing as a child, that when you get older, you would no longer be afraid of things anymore, so that was disappointing to realize isn't the case. I have felt what I believe someone touching my hand a few times, and remember questioning myself if I really had just felt that or not. It has only happened to my knowledge, when I'm in bed at night, trying to go to sleep. This one time, my husband had went to the bathroom, and as I laid there in bed, in the dark, with my at the time, 4 year old (she's now 5) at the other end of the bed (my husband was in the middle, before he went to the bathroom that is), I had my eyes shut, trying to go to sleep, when I felt a small size hand grab mine. I kept my eyes shut thinking it was my daughter, but couldn't shake that weird feeling I got at that time, so I decided to open my eyes and see if it was her, and with the little bit of light in the room (from a distant light that was on, while our door was opened) I saw her not right next to me like I had thought she was, when I felt someone grab my hand. She was also asleep, and I remember still seeing where her hand was, and if she was to reach out to grab mine, if it would have reached, and noticed it didn't add up. That how I felt the position of the hand that grabbed mine, was impossible to have been from my daughter. That's when I thought how freaky that was. I doubt it meant any harm obviously, if anything, it was showing comfort, but thought how this kind of stuff always seems to happen to me, when my husband leaves the room at night, when we're in bed, and the lights are out. It's like it waits for him to leave to mess with me. At least it doesn't do anything in a harmful way though. I've wondered who it could have been, thinking of how small the hand felt, it couldn't have been an adult 🤔 like I've said before, I believe there's multiple spirit's in our home, that I assume just attracts to me, as wherever I go, I always experience something. Our house was built by my dad, so no one has died here either. I think between our land, and what attracts to me, is why I feel so many different types around here. Sorry to go on this long with my comment, I can never seem to make things short. I hope all is going good for you now, it was good reading another one of your experiences ❤

Thanks for the gold star Val 😉. I agree further investigation and interviews with the witnesses would have been enlightening. There do appear to be drops on the windshield but where they came from isn't known. Furthermore, the witnesses claim they heard noises yet it is silent in the car. No comments about mist or human sized apparitions as the incident unfolds, yet they stop in front of the cannons as if they've seen something. If I just witnessed an apparition running through a cannon I think I'd be saying something--like, "Did you just see that!"

Although we can't be sure, the evidence suggests that the witnesses noticed this anomaly after the fact and created a full story around it. The lack of any kind of reaction or exclamation of surprise by the witnesses or any sound at all suggests a narrative was created after the anomaly was discovered.

Gold star ⭐ for Manafon. That's exactly what I was hoping to hear.
In my opinion it's just as important to try and 'debunk' the debunking as to analyze the 'haunting'.
Personally, I would have liked to have seen that particular paranormal group (the one's who slowed down the footage) take their investigation further. For instance in the comments on their Facebook page, one woman argued that droplets would need rain and it had not been raining at all. So where did the droplet come from? This was not addressed and I think it should have been. Was there a shower that night/day? Or even a day or 2 prior, that left a puddle he drove through? Had he just come from a car wash? Driven through sprinklers, used the wipers? And what about Mr. Yuelling's claims, as well as the others in the car?
I can't help but wonder if that Investigative group had tried to speak with them, or attempt to see if anyone else had the same experience. Prosaic explanation or not - still a cool video.

Manafon1, Val and SWS,

I have just gotten around to watching the first video and then the slow-motion one. That sucks! I can see how the occupants of the car would think that it was the figure of a man; but, it is also clear that it is a case of well-placed rainwater. Damn.

But no one said it would be easy.

Hi Val--I also searched out articles on the event and read the youtube comments. I believe the people in the car thought they heard things and because of a pre-existing expectation that the area was haunted, thought they had captured Civil War era soldiers moving amongst the cannons. I just personally feel that when the footage is closely scrutinized that there is a convincing argument to be made that what initially appears to be apparitions are raindrops on the windshield combining with the headlights to create an illusion of apparitions.

Of course everyone is welcome to there opinion and I do believe Civil War battlefields are often quite haunted. I've seen a lot of extremely convincing footage from various battlefields over the years. I'm just skeptical of this particular incident even taking into account what the witness stated.

Manafon, yes I did. I went a step further and looked at the comments made on their FB post as well.😉
Did you read the article posted in the US Sun? Https://www.the-sun.com/news/1458963/gettysburg-ghosts-spooky-apparitions-road-running/

Yuelling (the guy who captured the video) claims they heard sounds as well, and that there was a patch of strange fog, and that the shapes were the 'size of humans'.

Hello valkricry, and Manafon1,

Thank you again Valkricry.
Yes, it's something else alright. I watched it a few times. 😲

Manafon1,
I didn't go to the link further down. 🤔
I really believed the footage was of ghosts. I will scroll down and check out the slow motion clip now.

Thank you Valkricry, Manafon1, Lealeigh, and 19isavela73 for your responses. It's so good to know I can come here for answers. I really appreciate your help.

Sleeping-with-steve and Val--did both of you scroll down further in the article and look at the footage of the same incident analyzed by the New Jersey Paranormal Research Organization? They actually slow the footage down and put forward a rather compelling theory that what we're actually seeing are drops of water on the car windshield in tandem with car headlights that combine with a prior expectation that the area is haunted creating the illusion of apparitions.

I have to agree that the footage is compelling but when it's slowed down and analyzed it does seem to have a prosaic explanation.

It's as real as day that there are ghosts in that footage. May their souls RIP.

Thank you Val. I can put my mind at ease now. 😘

19isabela73,

I was in the kitchen when I heard the start of the segment. I ran to the lounge and saw a little bit of the footage, but didn't hear where in America this happened. I've tried googling, but, unfortunately without a place, I'm not having much success. 😕

I'll post my findings if I'm successful.

Hi 19isabela73 and Lealeigh,

Do you have a link 19isabela73? Do you remember which battlefield it was so I can search online? I only heard 2 ghosts were caught on dashcam in a battlefield in America. I didn't hear where in America.😣 I'd really like to see that footage. It looked so interesting.

Good to see you
Lealeigh.
Best wishes to both of you and thanks for replying.

Hello Members,

Does anyone know of a recent ghost sighting in an American battlefield caught on dashcam today? 🤔

The 4.30pm news on Ch 7 today here in Australia, (September 14th 2020), had a segment about two ghosts caught on dashcam at a well known haunted battlefield in America.

I only saw the end of the clip and have been trying to google it so I can watch the full footage.

I haven't had any luck so far.

I'll watch the Ch 7 late news and hopefully they'll repeat that segment.

I'll update my findings if I'm successful.

Best wishes,
SWS 👻

Happy New Year Melda, and thank you.

Your son must love it there on the coast. It's a lovely spot.🏖️

Yes, the fireworks have been cancelled because of high temperatures. Today it was 46 degrees in Penrith and will be 43 there on Saturday.

The poor farmers are struggling. Their calves and lambs are unable to get milk from their mothers and are skin and bones and die.🐄🐑 It brakes my heart when I see the images on the news. I donate money when I can to various causes and pray the farmers get rain. We are on water restrictions because our drinking water dams are down to 38%. ⛲

Anyway, I don't mean to burden you or other members with negative things happening here.

Please enjoy your New Years Eve

Best wishes,
Miranda

Miandra - Happy New Year to you too.

I assume the cancellation of the fireworks is due to drought and fires which have been plaguing Australia.

My son and his family have been living in Australia (Newcastle) for a year now and he said the situation has been pretty bad.

I too wish the members of YGS a prosperous 2020 😊

I'm still trying to figure out my phone. I think my Australian accent is confusing Google voice command. I keep getting the strangest search results. Lol🤣. Just asked for Seasons Greetings and got results for Sneezing meaning. Lol 🤔

I'm rolling around laughing. My belly is full of Christmas lunch and I'm actually in pain now from laughing. The neighbours probably think I've had a bit too much eggnog. Lol.

Time to stop using the phone and watch a Christmas movie.

"2020" seems like a good number to me; isn't that what they call "perfect vision"

Or maybe I think it looks good because I am the type of person who cares that all of the picture frames in the house are perfectly balanced...🖼️

Hello Jubeele,

I'm sorry to hear you have had surgery and are bed ridden. The more rest you get, you quicker you will heal.

Yes the curry was delicious with the Jasmine rice. I love all sorts of spicy dishes like Mexican, Thai, Malaysian, Indian, Greek, and Italian. I even put chilli in the Greek and Italian. Lol. 😉

Sefano was in Days of our lives and he had son with Vivian also called Sefano.

I watch all the soap's. Lol. Neighbours, Home and Away, Young and the Restless and Becker. Tonight is the Bachelor Finale'. I have my popcorn and chocolate ready. Hmmmmm, I can't wait. As you can see, yes I'm happy and positive.

I hope you and Rex-T get stronger every day.

It makes me feel better knowing I'm not the only one who has experienced this.

It really did startle me. It felt so real, quick, and abrupt. My hand didn't just roll off my pillow like it can sometimes when you turn over in your sleep.

Thank you for your response.

Hi Miandra,

Rex-T is doing well, busy doing the hunting and gathering for us. I'm off my feet after knee surgery. It's the ice pack and painkillers for me at the moment. That curry and jasmine rice sounds yum. 'Bold and the Beautiful'? That brings back memories. I confess to having a soft spot for Stephano - his character development deserved better.

Hope there's no more rude disturbances for your sleep. Keep being positive and happy! 😊

I had a experience while working. I was sitting in a recliner next to a make shift table, when my arm was what describe as flung over towards the table. My patient was there when it happened, we were both dumb founded by what had happened. I have experienced other things that were really creepy. My patient had a cup he was holding get knocked out of his hand. So yeah I can relate to this story.

Hello Silverthane61,

Yes, I totally agree, it was strange. No it wasn't playful. It was flung quite abruptly. It didn't just drop off my pillow. It was flung.

I know this sounds unbelievable, but I swear it's what happened. I'm trying to convince myself it was a dream, but the more I reflect back, the more I feel convinced it really happened.

Thank you for reading my post and commenting.

Admittedly strange! Though I confess that I am not familiar with Rookdygins, if doing that calms the "spirits", then I say do it like you have been doing before. It is a bit aggressive for a spirit to toss your arm while you were asleep like that. Was it playful or mean-spirited I wonder?

So nice to see you. How's Rex-T doing?

I was startled, but I'm strong enough these days not to be scared. I'm not going to let spirits stop me from being positive and happy.

It was cool which was unusual for the time of year.

I'm going to stick with Rookdygins cleansing. I slackened off for 3/4 weeks. Lol. 😊

Thank you for stopping by and my best to Rex-T and yourself.

Hi Miandra, it's good that you feel stronger and not as scared as before. I often sleep with my hand under the pillow. A few times, I must have shifted in the night, causing my hand to slip off the bed and waking me up. Maybe you moved in your sleep and ended up at the edge of the bed, dislodging your hand? Just suggesting that possibility.

The cold feeling in the room is strange though. There are cold snaps at the start of Spring, being change of season. But 26°C (79°F) is hardly cold. When you woke up, did you feel frightened or startled? Our 'survival instincts' usually tell us if we need to get away from a potential threat. If there wasn't any fear, it could just be you moving your hand in your sleep... Or someone was trying to get your attention.

Cleansing should help to clear away negative energies that might build up over time. Whatever is left should only be those that mean no harm. Do continue with Rook's cleansing if you find it helps you. Take care. Our best to you. 😊

A ghost is possible. As far as movement happening when sleeping that happens more than we are aware of. You should put a video camera on yourself while sleeping and see what happens.

Hello Cherubim,

Thanks for your comment and reading my post.

Yes, I know the history of this unit. Apparently a very old angry man died when he fell and hit his head on the corner of the tiles in the bathroom which runs off my bedroom. This was before I moved in. I've been here for 2 & 1/2 years now. Also the man next door died a couple of months ago. He was angry and drunk most of the time too. The 2 blocks that are on either side of mine have also had deaths.

Cleansing has to be done regularly here to keep on top of the unwanted spiritual visitors.

Best wishes,
Miandra

Hmmm, I wonder if you can find out who lived there before you or any history about the place? I've had "happenings" since I was a child and used to be very fearful too, not as much anymore. That would definitely make me get out of bed if I felt my hand being flung from under my face as you did! 😲 Yes, it sounds like a cleansing is due. Thank you for sharing your story.
