I would like people's opinions on this video :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUJTAOeAtM8
It was taken during a 'lock in', earlier this year at a night time ghost hunt in Warwick Castle, in the bear tower. There is just myself and Lisa, and we decided to take some pictures and take some video footage.
I don't really want to say anymore about the video as I want to hear what people can/can't see. It's not the 'orbs' flying about !

How often do the have ghosthunting lock-ins at Warwick castle? Are they all night? More info on this please I am very interested in joining a ghosthunting group.

A friend of mind is the pastor of our village church. One of his duties is locking the church door at night - after first checking the church is empty ;/ His wife tells me he has had strange experiences with ghosts and presences. But he refuses to talk about them to me or anyone else, partly because he is religious but would rather push the incident out of his mind so that it 'never happened'.
I suggested a group of village friends could get together and go 'ghosthunting' if he would lend us the key. To see how he stiffened, how uncomfortable and scared he looked at the idea was intriguing. His answer was "no way!" (end of subject)

Interesting video. Were you able to see the anomalies with the naked eye, or only through the camera lens ? If with the naked eye, were they illuminated with a light source or self illuminating? Was it happening throughout the time stayed or for a short time during ?

Can't see anything I'm afraid. No anomalies, anyway. When enough people have had a look, could you point out where in the video the weirdness is? Thanks.

All I could see was compression artefacts, which I guess could drown out something subtle. But I did see an orb Sad

About 23 seconds in, as I pan away from Lisa, sort of two streaks of mist (best I can describe it ) and a couple of orbs at beginning.
As for ghost hunt it is with a company called Haunted Happenings, been to Warwick Castle with them and Nottingham Galleries of Justice/City of Caves. Google them for a link, as I am not sure I am allowed to post it here. Off to Newark Castle with them soon.

I wonder if it's linked to the black 'smoke ring' that was filmed just down the road.....?

Quote:

'Black Ring Of Leamington Spa' Could Be Witchcraft (But More Likely Insects)

Even after dismissing witchcraft with a rational mind this is still really, really weird.

Dubbed the Black Ring of Leamington Spa, the strange phenomenon was captured by Georgina Heap, 16, on her iPhone on Friday evening near Warwick Castle.

Fire services have said no fires were reported at the time and the Met Office have said it does not appear to be weather-related.

What the hell is it?

Heap said it was "the weirdest thing I have ever seen".

"I looked up at it and thought 'what the hell?', it was amazing.

"It was just floating there like a cloud and then it disappeared. It wasn't birds either.

"There were about ten of us who stopped what we were doing and watched."

UFO expert, Nick Pope, described the video as "truly bizarre" and ruled out it being a smoke ring.

He added: "One other possibility is that the shape is made up of millions of bees or other insects, but I've never heard of insects behaving in this way before, so if this is the explanation, it's a real-life X-File."

DISCLAIMER: THE FOLLOWING IS NOT INTENDED TO BE DISMISSIVE OF ANYONE'S EXPERIENCE OR BELIEFS Laughing

but these look like camera artifacts to me - internal optical reflections or something to do with the camera adjusting from bright image (Lisa) to darkness again.

Don't feel dismissed. In fact, I am glad of any rational explanations as not an expert on photography/video and associated artefacts !

Only saw the 'orbs', didn't see the mist. Very sceptical husband and Lisa's husband went in for a lock in next, and came out refusing to tell us what they had seen as they wanted to debunk it. Later after they had carried out their experiments, shining torches at the tower/door from outside from all sorts of angles, they told us they had seen bright lights in the corner of the room which they hadn't been able to recreate. Only explanation husband could come up with was bioluminescence.
We were followed round all night by the really strong smell of Jasmine too - as if you walk into your garden when it is in full bloom and it wasn't anybody's perfume. We also checked for air fresheners !

There were something around the 3rd and 4th second in the video. Put the video on HD and fullscreen and stop/start the video several times from the 2nd second.
