Ok while we were in SC we decided to drive the extra few miles up to NC to see "The Show Boat" Battle Ship North Carolina, now a museum was once the pride of the naval fleet and outfitted with top equipment for her day. She is now docked in Wilmington where you can go on board for a self guided tour. She is also said to be haunted. Many visitors report sightings, hearing sounds etc, TAPS investigated the NC a few years back and came away with a really great K2 session. We decided to have a look for ourselves. I only took aboard a 35mm camera, you cant take any large bags on board simply because of some of the hatches you will go through are too small.

We only caught 2 real anomalies which we could not explain but I did manage to glimpse a man at the bottom of a set of stairs leading up from the engine room. So here are the pics.

Are you sure the first one isn't a reflection off the glass surrounding that area? If not then that is an awesome catch...

We have stared at this for hours YB, in fact we went over all of these images before I posted them. Could it be a reflection? I can not say it is and I can not say it isn't but if there was anything there that looked like that to reflect I would have noticed it. I took a lot of shots near the chapel and that's the only one I saw anything odd in. In fact it stood out as soon as I looked at this one. I increased brightness trying to make it blend out, most reflections will do this. But this remained, in fact it actually began to show more detail.
This area is encased by plexi-glass I thought it was a flare artifact but looking closer it appears that this thing is inside the actual room beyond the glass. You will also see the camera flash appears a much different color and is reflected on the opposite side. I leave this one up for debate.

As for the shadow, we still can't find a logical explanation for it just yet. There was no one in that room but the two of us and we were setting down behind the camera when that one was taken. I was also asking anyone that may want to be in the picture to step forward. But neiher of us saw anything out of the ordinary while there.

I think it is a reflection but of what.. who knows. The reason is look at the size proportion as compared to it's surroundings. It is smaller than a person would be standing in that area.
A reflection of a person standing further away would appear the size of the apparition.

Dude, I think the ghost was standing behind you....

Your right, the size threw me off as well. Whatever that thing is it's interesting. I'll try to blow it up a bit larger today as well.
