Exactly what I got back on page two. I used Firefox to edit, but couldn't load to ATS.... bummer, but you have the exact pic I came up with. Please show it with out the outlines, I think the audience will see even more . It is a very strange unexplainable picture unless its a costume draped on the back seat?

It appears to be a reflection of the person taking the picture.

2nd line.

I totally see it. It could be a camera mishap, but I can make out the left eye clear.

Very creepy nonetheless.

I don't think that I could conclusively say what it is or is not, even though some people are saying its definitely a reflection of the person taking the photo, but I know I've taken photos and seen orbs or other strange things that are definitely not from the camera... I'd say its possible it could be a spirit or your boy's "friend"... Anyway, why don't you ask your son to ask his friend to come back for a photoshoot, so you can get some better pictures

My dime says, it's a finger print on the mirror.

For me, the nail in the coffin of believability was the way the child's head has a shadow on it that corresponds to the object that is supposedly behind him.

This screams of a photographic error. We should turn our attention to more convincing evidence.

Congratulations on a successful thread and I hope you have found the answers you are searching for in this photo. However, if you have not, I would like to give my opinion on the image.

It is completely possible that you are seeing a very faint image of a face. So faint that it appears to be supernatural in nature. A face, eyes, mouth, etc.

My opinion is one that doesn't entertain supernatural entities, regardless how much I want it to be.

The image in the photo could possibly be a reflection of your wife or your child, seated in back.

You know when you are driving down the highway at night and you are lucky enough to be getting tailgated by the car behind you, their headlights blinding you with their reflection in your rear-view & side view mirrors?

As road-rage builds, you remember the best way to get rid of the blinding light in your rear-view is to flip the toggle switch on the bottom of your mirror.

The next day, you get in your car and begin to back out of your driveway. When you look in your rear view mirror you notice that the objects behind you are still visible, but they are very, very faint - almost so much so to render many of the reflections invisible or undetectable.

So, you flip the toggle again, restoring the reflection to the quality it should be. This causes you to realize the mirror always reflects 2 seperate sets of identical images. 1 reflection appears as it should and the other is the eerie, ghost-like reflection. The second image is not viewable, unless the mirror is adjusted to the right angle, but it is always there. You can maneuver the camera in a way that captures this 'ghost' reflection.

I believe what you are confused about is simply the secondary, 'ghost-like', reflection produced by the mirror as used as a night time safety feature.

If this has already been offered as a solution, sorry for the redundancy. If it hasn't been, then I hope this helps give you another plausible explanation to determine what you are viewing in the photo.

Its simply a reflection off the mirror, nothing strange or ghostly about it

I added some brightness, lowered the contrast a tad, added some curves, added a highpass filter set to soft light and then i cut out the ghostly thingy (what ever you want to call it), i then used the dodge and burn tools to bring out the light areas and darken the darker areas, and managed to come up with this.

It looks like two faces to me, one reminds me of Jesus.
Anyway here it is.

Good one Ephio.You are the first to see the skull below the main one. Keep looking. There are more. They "overlap" in and around the central character. They don't look benign to me.

Exactly.I am glad to see that some people are seeing what I saw in the picture.

I agree,for arguments sake,if they are "ghosts"/"aliens" etc. they do not look friendly.

That is not to say I know for sure,only giving my impression.

Ephio great work,thank you.
I must say though,that little face does not remind me or make me think of Jesus
it looks evil.

Logic & reason would dictate the mundane,most simplistic answer and cause for the photographic anomaly but That is the easy explanation,the most comfortable solution.

People see and experience all sorts of anomalies/paranormal activity,some agree it could actually be something otherworldly,others are stuck on logical/scientific based facts and easy,comfortable answers...Both cannot be right every time.

There is a thin line between naivety/gullibility and remaining open minded but the same could be said for those who if a family members spirit manifested in front of them would still deny it,blindly using logic and reason....

A thin line.

It does have a creepy open mouth and big eyed look to it doesn't it? I showed my wife and she instantly got goose-bumps and she's not at all into this kinda thing. Definitely a creepy picture and the fact it was taken with an iphone in a mirror makes me wonder if there's something to that combo that caught it. Try recreating it at random without thinking about it too much ahead of time.

The thing that has been nagging me is "Why". Why did your other half take this pic? Did she see something or did your son say something?

After reading through all twenty pages of this thread, I don't really know what to think anymore. I do not believe in reptilians or grays, but I do believe that there are unexplainable things out there such as spirits and demons. From certain analyses it does look like it could be nothing more but a double reflection or smudge, but looking at it other ways I can see an array of other things. A person with their arm around the child, the very disturbing photos of a clawed hand covering the child's mouth, even up to a dog in the back seat beside something. What I'm getting at is it's all in th eye of the beholder and we won't really know if it's something paranormal unless more interviews with the child are taken, more pictures with the same situation are taken to eliminate the chance of camera error or natural anomalies. We can't know anything until the OP looks further into this and presents us with more evidence. S+F for the topic for sure, it's quite interesting!

Also: To the turtle woman that continues coming back to this topic: No one is making you read this. You can just pass it up without contributing your snide remarks repetitively. We've honestly had enough. You're not contributing anything helpful to the topic and you're really just wasting space in here. You don't HAVE to come in here and read this.

I’m thinking it could be one of two things..

1.Swamp gas.
2.Sun reflecting off the rings of Jupiter.

Well. I gotta respond, simply because I have a lot of paranormal stuff happening in my house and around me everyday. Nothing too freaky most of the time. With todays digital camera's you can really capture spirits on them. I have some pics of some pretty creepy entity's. One almost looks like a pig with fangs. But, I have seen Anne (the woman that passed away in my house before I moved in). I caught her peeking around the corner one night while I was tucking my son in for bed. I was freaked right out, She was fairly tall, shoulder length hair, a solid ghost, she looked like she was a real person standing there with the light reflecting off of her hair. I have watched my folding vinyl chair shaking on its own in front of me.I have had to stop my lamp at night from almost rocking off of my nightstand.
Anyway, as crazy as all of this stuff sounds, it's very real, and I am going to have to lean towards that this photograph probabaly has a spirit in it. Look at where the eyes should be, they are dark and sunkin in, I have seen this before. I don't think this person has anything to worry about though.
To really find out if you have spirits around, take an i pod touch, or samsung galaxy, put it in video mode, leave the flash or light on continuously, and just have a little bit of light coming into the room and you will get an orb or orbs whipping around the room at top notch speeds hanging 90 degree turns. Its amazing to watch them in motion.

I couldn't say either. Just go by what we can see here. What I do see is they hide in a reflection for one, they look "shadowy" and have slanted eyes, skull looking caricatures and they are in fuzzy shadow hovering over the child. My child (just projecting).

To me, that is like a bully threatening my son in front of me, daring me to do something about it. And I can't punch this cretin with a Halloween mask and evil eyes in the face now can I? Dark, sinister and cowardly from my perspective.

"Oh, you like to pick on little kids do you?" Surely of, by and for the dark side...

That photo gave me the goose bumps. Looks interdimensional.

If you have already heard this then sorry. didn't have time to read through all of them.
The photo does not suggest anything paranormal. It is, unfortunately, a reflection of either the girl or your son in the mirror under low light conditions. If you look you can see the 'fog' actually is in front of your son's face, you can see the 'fog' start from the left of his shoulder and continue to above and to the right, which is where you are seeing a creepy face. The 'fog' is a movement reflection, vanity mirrors are not high quality mirror material. They are made to be light and inexpensive. There is a lot of imperfect surface to reflect/refract in some odd placements, particularly if you do not dust the surface very often or very often. so either dust or small scratches are contributing to what you are seeing. (I would look up how holograms are made very interesting and yet very relevant to what is seen her, just not on a permanent hard surface)
Sorry, no ghost.
how I really wished it was a ghost. I haven't seen a good one in while, but at least your son is safe.
I believe and I have seen

I agree with others a smudge in the mirror, probably your fingerprint

So are you gonna post the photograph of the thing next to your son or not? At the moment all you have is the photo with the smudge on the rear view mirror. Perhaps you put the wrong photo up?
