Hiker captures 'ghostly figure' walking alongside him in Lake District, UK

A man captured the moment he spotted a "ghostly figure" walking alongside him in the Lake District. Chris Randall, 45, was hiking when he spotted a Brocken spectre - a large shadow of an observer cast onto cloud or mist - out of the corner of his eye. Chris was camping alone on Red Pike near Wasdale Head in Cumbria when he saw the "ghostly" phenomenon.

A Brocken spectre also called Brocken bow or mountain spectre, is the magnified (and apparently enormous) shadow of an observer cast upon clouds or mist opposite the Sun's direction. 

The figure's head is often surrounded by the halo-like rings of coloured light forming a glory, which appears opposite the Sun's direction when uniformly-sized water droplets in clouds or mist refract and backscatter sunlight. 

The phenomenon can appear on any misty mountainside or cloud bank, even when seen from an airplane, but the frequent fogs and low-altitude accessibility of the Brocken, a peak in the Harz Mountains in Germany, have created a local legend from which the phenomenon draws its name. 

The Brocken spectre was observed and described by Johann Silberschlag in 1780, and has since been recorded often in literature about the region.  

 
 Here are two more videos of this eerie 'Brocken spectre' phenomenon. Video 1 - Video 2

      According to Inexplicata, this recording of a giant 'humanoid figure' on a hill in Aguascalientes, Mexico in 2003 was obtained by a trucker driving through the state of Aguascalientes, specifically a section of the road between the capital and Lagos de Moreno, before reaching the toll booth known as "La Chona".

      Theories regarding the nature or origin of the creature began to arise among users and although it is unclear what exactly it could have been, the most popular theories were centered on the humanoid figure being a "giant".
      Science says that races of giant humans do not exist and never have, but we know that the real history of humanity is deliberately being hidden from us, so could this humanoid figure be a giant from the past but still present on earth?

      On December 20, 2022, an unknown object does seem to go in the Sun's direction before it suddenly changing it's direction, almost making an U-turn without slowing down. 

      When a comet goes around the sun it comes back at the other side but this thing isn't going around the sun, it makes a parabolic turn before flying back into deep space.  
      A possibility is that the object could have been a UFO piloted by aliens but YouTube channel Suspicious0bservers offers two more possibilities of what the object might have been. 
      One commenter states: The speed and size would cause massive torsion and an aggregate would likely break up or burn up. The idea of a planet sized object coming close and veering like that would mean the is a force pulling it away from the sun. Another possibility is magnetic repulsion if the energy of the object is the opposite in polarity to the sun and reacted at that distance. 
      A second commenter states: It looks like it's zooming past the camera from behind, approaching the Sun, and then flying past it, in a parabolic curve. I think it's just the perspective that makes it look like it's approaching and then backing away. The only thing that shocks me is the size and speed of it. What if that had hit the Earth? 
      After watching the video and reading the comments, it's clear that no one knows exactly what this planet-sized object might have been. 
      UFO? Natural space phenomena? Or is it something to be worried about!

      A dog walker claims she's captured footage of a 'demon ghost' crawling across the path in an infamous haunted National Trust country park in England - so shocking that it's turned her skeptical hubby into a 'believer'. 

      Hannah and Dave Rowett were walking their Labradors through the supposedly haunted forest in Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire, around 6.30am earlier this month when the mum 'felt they weren't alone'. 
      The 52-year-old quickly pulled out her phone and captured a 'scary' white silhouette crossing the path in front of her as she follows it with a torch. 
      The footage shows an odd white mist that quickly materializes into a form that resembles a figure which then hastily moves across the path in front of her before vanishing into thin air. Although she initially suspected that the anomaly was the spirit of a dog, Hannah now believes that it was humanoid in nature and mused that "it's quite demonic in the way it's crawling and has long limbs" reports CoasttoCoast.

      For the fifth consecutive night, pilots belonging to different airlines have reported the presence of UFOs over the skies of Porto Alegre, Brazil. 

      According to Inexplicata, between 22:50 and 23:10, four flights reported the presence of strange lights in the sky to the Air Traffic Control center. 
      The flights in question were 4248, 3140, 4407, of Azul Air, and LATAM flight 3406. Pilots noticed that the lights went on and off, but did not constitute a hindrance to air traffic. 
      The moment was recorded by the Salgado Filho Airport Control Center.

      Is our government working on crashed UFOs? Bob Lazar said he worked on reverse engineering alien spacecraft at a military facility in 1989 called SITE 4 (within the Area 51 designation). He described a unique and highly camouflaged building, built into the mountains and located at Papoose Lake... which is about 17 miles south of Groom Lake. 

      People have argued for 33 years if Lazar was telling the truth about a secret operational UFO facility at Papoose Lake. 
      The thing is... there was a civilian who snuck onto the Area 51 base - and took a look at Papoose Lake for himself. Did you know that? 
      In the spring 1997, an archeologist named Jerry Freeman snuck into the forbidden zone of Area 51 (and Papoose Lake). He is the only civilian known to have gained access to where Bob Lazar said was a hidden military installation. Lazar reported a unique and highly camouflaged building the military used to storehouse and reverse-engineer extraterrestrial flying saucers. 
      However, many people like to claim that Jerry Freeman never reported seeing anything unusual at Papoose Lake... that his excursion was uneventful, and that somehow his account throws shade on what Bob Lazar told us but that is nonsense. 
      Now, hear the REAL story from George Knapp… and also hear directly from Jerry. 
      This clip contains an audio interview Jerry did with radio host Art Bell. He gives a first-hand description of what he saw at Papoose Lake. Even the Los Angeles Times reported on Jerry’s forbidden excursion, and that he “discovered what seemed to be a lighted doorway that appeared and disappeared in the darkness of distant Papoose Lake”. 
      I think people have just forgotten their history, so it’s time to resurrect the truth... it’s time to listen up. You can now judge for yourself, and there’s more to come. 
      Is this just another confirmation that what Bob Lazar told us is true?
