Ok my friends, I just ran across this and it is worth a look I think. This is from a surveillance camera watching someones front yard. This unusual shadow appears at the 1:57 mark on the right hand of the screen. It sits there for awhile with nothing really happening until around the 4:42 mark when a car comes down the road. It seems to illuminate maybe? So then nothing again until the owner comes out at around the 8:34 mark. That's when it gets real interesting as it seems to follow him.

So, I suggest if you dont want to watch the whole thing because it is like 10 min. or so, to watch the key mark times I gave you. I wont say my opinion yet, because I'd lke to hear what you think.

I also suggest watching it full screen if you can

It looks like a man on the roof or a peak infront of the motion spotlight.

The shadow looks like a cast shadow, not like a shadowy being moving around.

almost had me though

My initial thoughts are it's a bug (beetle or roach) on the camera lens. You can see that the "shadow" doesn't actually exist out at the fence, due to illumination and such. Look at it at the end of the video and you can kind of see what looks to me like a bug walking off the lens.

Funny how it seems to react to the man though!

I was all prepared to say its obviously a bug on the camera lens, then i saw the end im finding it harding hard to explain, shadow seems to 'change' somehow.

The 'Shadow' Was always there, you can see from the corner of the fence a little bit of blur.

Anyways, It's a bug, when the man walks up to where it is at on the lens, you can see that most of his body gets blocked out because of the bug taking up that certain spot on the lens.

Well that's my opinion anyways.

Oh for the love of god!

I work in a control room and I have to watch CCTV cameras constantly. Trust me when I say that this IS A BUG ON THE CAMERA LENS!

It's nothing spooky, it's just a bug.

I have seen some pretty interesting things on cameras, and you can quite easily distinguish between a genuine paranormal blip (which does happen) and a bug.
This is a bug.

When the shadow first appears, it's undulation made me think of an inch worm or tiny caterpillar.

I'm going to guess there's a dark moth (those green ones, actually) on the camera lense

It is a Shadow-Being, just as the text says in the clip.

They are also called Shadow People, Shadow Persons or "Hat-Man"

What they are? No one seems to know for sure. There are speculations and suggestions of what they might be, but so far, it is only speculations, ranging from anything to Interdimensionall Beings, Timetravellers, Ghosts and so on.

Personally, I do not believe them to be ghosts, as they are allways described as acting too "alive" and "aware".

neh, nothing unusual, if ya look, the shadow doesn't actualliy "appear", it's always there, it just moves at around your given mark. the lights of the passing car, change the point of illumination, wjich it why it seems to dissapate, an actual shadow being would be afftected that way, at least, i don't think so. **shrugs**. it's fairly obvious. the shadow is a neighbor, perhaps on a balcony, you can see the man, owner of the house talking to him. that's why it seems to follow him when he comes outside. it's the neighbor adjusting his position to see and hear the owner. that's also why it looks like it follows the owner when he goes inside. perhaps the owner asks him to turn down the radio or something, as the owner goes inside, so does the nieghbor, to turn down his radio, .. or something..

Actually looking back i think it is just a bug, the way it moves at the same sort of time as the man was just a coincidence, moth, spider, fly, maybe?

I haven't really read many of the other replies, but this seems like a really long, boring video of a bug on a camera lens.. its much easier to see, and notice the extremely bug like movements when it moves when not in full screen mode.. in full screen, it's much harder to notice the legs scurrying when the "shadow" moves. These type if videos are all over YouTube (I remember one of a "ghost" floating around a gas station that was exactly the same thing, a bug on a low resolution security camera, with indirect lighting casting a shadow on the bug).

It looks like this was faked to me. First when the guy comes outside he turns and looks at the camera. Then he goes to the side of the fence and looks to see whats there. If he was seeing something from inside and came out to see what it was, Then why not go up to the camera and inspect it. And the timing of the house across the street turning there porch light off right at the moment he walks back in his house is also suspect.

If it was me and i saw a weird shadow in front of my camera, I would inspect the camera. not walk to the street and stare at it.

So obviously a bug on the camera that it absolutely boggles the mind that people think it might be fake or paranormal. Well wait... then again, it wasn't that long ago that if an owl hooted at midnight people would go on paranoia induced witchhunts to save their villages from black magic, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.

After watching the video, I'm inclined to say that someone is trying to pull a fast one. To me, and this is only my opinion based on observation of the video, it looks like he has a large breed of dog and it is being blurred out in the video. He walks to the corner of the fence and stops and it looks as if he calls to it or something and then it "jumps" up on the fence like a large dog would. Then when he walks back in, the "dog" follows him back to the house.

I don`t think it`s his neighbour`s shadow as it is not sharp like the silhouettes of the other shadows.

I don`t think it is a bug either as it seems too coincidental for it to respond to the man on the sidewalk & then follow him in lockstep toward the house.

Also, when the shadow follows him toward the house, it looks to me more like it stood up & `walked` along with him.

Sure, a catepillar could stand up but I don`t think they can scoot along like that.

And anyway, like I said, it just seemed to move in tandem with the owner too much to be a bug.

I don`t know what a shadow being is but that sounds more likely to me.

I can't believe I went through all that for a bug on a camera lens. :sad:
Man, that is serious just a bug.
