The Coast to Coast website is displaying a strange image taken from inside of a church located near Pahrump, Nevada. The image appears to show a small shadow like form walking across a crowded room. From what I can tell it doesn't appear to be a camera anomaly so that would seem to leave image manipulation or actual event as the only other likely explanations.

Anyone have any strong opinions about the authenticity of the image?

It looks like a photo taken at a very,very slow shutter speed to me.
Any moving image would be blurred like that,if what I suspect is true.

I understand what you mean by slow shutter spead blurring...

That doesn't explain to me why there is so little definition around what would be the head area. The feet would most likely be moving the fastest in a walk and yet those seem to appear with the most clarity.

I agree with SOT
Notice how none else is walking at that speed, so with the right shutter speed, and someone walking fairly briskly across the room, unlike the rest of the people in the picture, it would create that image.
Im no photo expert at all, but that seems logical.

Actually, you can set a shutter speed slow enough to where a moving image is almost invisible.

This kyak image seems to have a similar effect, but unlike the image from my first post this one appears to be in the shade which explains the darkness of the image. The image on the coast to coast site was taken in the middle of a well lighted room.

nobody seems concerned or paying attention to that blur in the center of the ?dance floor?
and all the background church goers images appear crisp & well defined..

the only blurry thing is what appears to be the lower legs & shoes of a 2 legged 'something' caught in the middle of a stride.
...my brain goes into action to compose a mental construction of a 'person'
whose upper torso is not there in the still photo.
(the ole finding-patterns-in-surroundings ability that helped humans survive)

???????????

but...whats that long & skinny silver stick-figure creature way up at the ceiling that seems to be attacking the lights?

I don't like playing the skeptic,but,really folks,there is nothing to see here. The silver thing looks like a giant balloon to me,and also, there is an orange stringy thing up there that looks like wiring to me. There is nothing all that astonishing in the photo...

Uhhhhhh, are you talking about the duct work?

That's the only silver thing I noticed along the lights.

I don't have an opinion on this picture one way or the other but I would like to see more example of what SOT was talking about with slowing the shudder speed. It seems to me everyone else would have to be perfectly still to achieve this effect. But I will admit I know nothing about photography and it might be easily done.

I am having a hard time finding examples,but I have seen photos where the image was so blurred due to slow shutter speed that you couldn't even tell that it was a person. They almost had a transparent appearance. I wil continue to look for examples of what I mean.

Here is a fair,not the best,example of what I am alluding to. Focus specifically on the back tire of the bike...You will see that it is so blurred that it's almost transparent. Like I said,it's not the best example but it will have to do for now.

Thanks SOT for the example. I'm still confused as to how the subject picture could have a clear background and the example you gave has a blurred background.

Point of focus...
The camera was focused on the moving object at the slow shutter speed.

Could it be a transdimensional being, materalized by the religious ceremony/ritual taking place in that house of worship.

Is that a slide projector on the table in the foreground with the blue light?

What kind of church is that?

Here is a much better example of what I am alluding to.



Notice how the people's legs are transparent?

Notice how the background is all blurred.

Better example please!

Here is an example of a blurred foregound and a sharp background,etshrtslr.

Thanks SOT....I did not mean for you yo spend your day looking for examples. Im still not sure what to think of the picture.

ET,you know that I am probably one of the more open minded individuals who post here,but looking at that photo,I can honestly say that I don't think there is really anything to it.
