Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

Chris Sandys, a BBC photographer, unexpectedly captured an image of what appears to be a ghost while reporting on the museum.
The photograph shows a a misty-figure in the room. According to Mr. Sandys, there was no one in the room at the time and several images were taken of the room, only in one does the figure appear.

A ghostly image has been snapped at a museum prompting speculation that the spirit of the English scientist Edward Jenner could be haunting his former home.

A photograph seems to have captured a hazy image of a man sitting on a chair in the attic of the Edward Jenner Museum in Berkeley, Gloucestershire.

The picture was taken by BBC photographer Chris Sandys, who said: “I don’t believe in ghosts myself, but this is strange.”

Mr Sandys, who was taking images for a story on the museum’s new Ghosts In The Attic exhibition, added: “As soon as I’d taken a panoramic photo, I reviewed the image on the camera and straight away noticed this strange formation of light, shaped like a figure, through the doorway in the next room.

“Without moving I did a few takes to try and work out what had caused it but couldn’t see anything. It was so weird.”

Jenner was the pioneer of smallpox vaccination and the father of immunology. He was born in Berkeley in 1749 where he spent most of his career as a doctor in the town before he died in 1823.

Museum director Sarah Parker said: “There have always been stories of ghosts at the Edward Jenner Museum. We usually take them with a large pinch of salt. We are truly flabbergasted by the image.

“You can basically see through a doorway what looks like a figure reclining in a chair, only there is no chair there. Who knows whether it is Jenner himself?

“We have graffiti from soldiers previously billeted in the attic rooms from the late 19th century and perhaps this is one of them or even one of Jenner’s servants.”

    In my belief, ghosts are creatures with other capacities than humans’, though they are less intelligent. They have the faculty to change look and to displace extremely fast. The Devil, Satan, or whatsoever it may be called is of this kind of creatures. “The devil’s cleverest ploy is to persuade you he doesn’t exist” (C. Baudelaire), so watch out! So one really doesn’t need to deny their existence to strengthen oneself against the fear of them. Human are stronger and more intelligent. Heard about exorcism?

    If two or more photos were taken in the same posistion, and only one photo presented an anomoly, it would lend a little more credibility to the claim. But since the photos are from two different view points I would say this is nothing more than some light reflection. If you look at the floor boards the lightness seems to stretch out into the front room. If I’m wrong and this is a photo of a spectral image, we could be looking at the first three legged spirit caught on camera. ( look at the floor )
