Video captured on June 8, 2013 while standing on former turnpike road outside of Bachelor's Grove Cemetery, watch carefully as cam pans to right and back left...look behind large tree trunk.
Video can be seen at http://www.youtube.c...h?v=OYpOLc3vzOw

I have watched carefully but didn't see anything out of the ordinary...
The cam pans left and right all the time.
Can you show us when we should be able to see something?

I don't see a darn thing, either. I was staring at that big, fat, dark tree trunk thoughout the video.

I watched carefully too.  I can't see anything out of the ordinary.  Could you post a still shot of what you'd like people to see?

The video has a lot of what I'd call pixelization banding - large blocks of it break up and lag behind when there's panning etc.  I didn't see anything either, but given the huge amount of foliage, shadows, and pixelization, whatever is being seen as paranormal is likely to just be an optical illusion anyway.

Or, somebody's pulling a prank on us and there's really nothing there.

REDIT: (Removed message here because he is NOT a troll & he does indeed do investigating.)

I'm so sorry, PapaJack. Why am I so paranoid?

I also think I see what might be a car materializing but it might be just paredolia. I'll post some pics.

I'm with you DazzledDad. Pans left to right constantly so which time? Or if really something there then why not give us time on bottom counter so know when to look. I also saw nothing. And look behind the big tree trunk. Well there again on which pan by? There are big tree trunks on every pass by from left to right. If really something there why not be more specific???
Pllease don`t cry, For the ghost and the storm outside
Will not invade the sacred shrine, Nor infiltrate your mind
My life down I shall lie, If the bogey-man should try
To play tricks on your sacred mind, To tease, torment and tantalize
Wavering shadows loom, A piano plays in an empty room
They`ll be blood on the cleaver tonight. ~ The Smiths

Saw this a while back...I think it fits right in, even though it's not a photo.

I know.  I like that one, too.  But sometimes folks get excited about something they see in some evidence they captured, and jump to conclusions.  I think that's human nature.   I suspect the person who posted this sees something he thinks is paranormal.

It helps to have neutral eyes see it and give opinions about what it is or isn't. This one doesn't have the tell tale signs of deliberate hoax at all.

On a related note, in the Ghost Adventures episode on Bachelor's Grove Cemetery, they do an EVP and hear, "____it's coming."  in answer to the question about who is there.  I hear clearly, "It's psychotic."

I write this to point out that different people can get different things from the same evidence.  I guess that's why I like to give people the benefit of the doubt unless it's an obvious hoax attempt.  Then I get pretty grumpy.

I love that demotivational.

I'd love to see PapaJack chime in on this!

I never meant to say this was a deliberate hoax...I was just trying to point out
that everyone reacted the same: "I don't see anything out of the ordinary."
We all studied the camera pans to the left, we all paid very close attention to every large tree trunk,
and no one saw anything strange.

Maybe PapaJack should just let it go...

I also did not mean to come across believing that this is a hoax. The point I was trying to make is that the info given is to vague for us to pinpoint whatever he is claiming he sees. So why not give counter time or specify which pan by.
I know eveybody sees things differently and would never try to disclaim what another claims to see.
My apologies to PapaJack if that is how my earlier comment came across.

Ok. I'm an insomniac and I have a ton of patience and time on my hands & it's 5:35am... So... If you watch it frame by frame or second to second (scrubbing??) my mind saw a car frame start to take form at around :37 and if you keep watching, it seems to cross over the road, to the right.  At :47, there is a pretty good visual of what looks a rust/dark colored '40s sedan sitting in the woods. They eventually pan back to the left and I could see the sedan again, but it's late and I couldn't figure out how to watch it every second, the slowest I could get was every 2 seconds. Tired of sliding back n forth, lol. I'll screen capture what I think the guy is seeing, later. I'll post the times the car is best visible in the 2nd half of the clip later too. But try looking at :37 & :47. I think you'll see what the person is talking about. Or maybe it's just me. :)

Ok. From 1:01-1:04, the 'sedan' can be seen behind a thin pine tree, as the cam pans back to the left.
I'm not affiliated w the OP, and I have not yet tried to see what could actually be making up the ghost sedan, because I was focusing on trying to see the car and the time. Ah... I need sleep... Hope everyone stays warm today!!

Looking forward to your screen snaps of the car you found.  I couldn't find it, but my capabilities to go frame to frame are poor on my computer.

Is it totally transparent, like the predator in the Predator movies? Is it really fast? Can you screencap & outline it?

WHAT I SEE [At around the :37-40 mark]

It's likely just paredolia but it is rather detailed.

Again, possibly just leaves, branches & stuff creating an illusion but he does get a good shot of it.

Is this it, PapaJack & ChrysisChylde?


On the subject of Batchelor's Grove. I was poking around the Web and found this on another webboard posted by another guy. It's a photo from the 70's that possibly shows the "Phantom House".

I did more of a zoom-in & sharpened a bit

I hope I don't have to pay this guy, now. :ermm:
