Found on Facebook. Supposedly taken by a paranormal team at the moment someone died. Claims that it was posted online but hasn't been debunked. Have fun!

Looks like a light reflection to me. You can see the sun coming into the room, likely reflecting off something in there

Is it really us who has to prove it has a logical explanation or should it be the those making the claim it be paranormal.

Broken record time: Scholarly debates exists on the premise if someone is making a claim, those making it must provide satisfactory proof to support the claim.

Is a single image enough proof? Does this image have any unaltered EXIF data to analyze the conditions. Were there others that witnessed this phenomena at the time with their own eyes and willing to sign an affidavit? Was the lens cleaned prior to it's use?

There's just too many missing pieces I would think to make any type extraordinary claim.

Quite frankly, I wish Snowlord was still here. I might be seen as a photographer on PS but he went to great lengths in replicating naturally explained phenomena through imaging. He had an unimaginable number of images ranging from orb creation to mists, naturally occuring photographic anomalies including lens flares.

In closing, the paranormal team needs to understand and make a concerted effort to rule out the mundane. To date, there are very few images that offer a shred of proof. Some do exist definitely but individuals claiming they possess a paranormal image do not even mildly understand the ingredients to make an opinion into a fact.

Here's my pathetic 5 minute creation in Photoshop. It's got to be paranormal, I posted it on the net :)

Wonder why there was a paranormal team there during someone’s passing. Do we know what team was there, was there any other backstory?

I think Vlawde is on the right track.

Ugh, I love looking at images but never get excited anymore because of what it is now possible to fake due to technology. Double edged sword, I guess. Thanks for posting, all the same.

Both photos are exactly the same all but the white blob, the person sitting didn't move between photos.

could it be the same photo with the white blob added?

But it doe's look like a light reflection, maybe from the mirror behind the lady sitting.or a hair from the photographer close to the lens.

Not sure on this one.

Takes a lot of testing, research and logic. It could be a light reflection.  At first I thought it was smoke from someones pipe.
