|Is this a spirit haunting a cemetery?|
Regardless of what it is, either paranormal or natural, it is still pretty creepy.
Some have speculated this could be ectoplasm. Ectoplasm is a form of spiritual energy that seems to form when physical mediums are in a trance state. There were numerous photographs of this type of energy produced in the late 1800's and early 1900's and even some today. Normally how it would work would be that the medium would hold some type of séance and at some point the other side would come through. This normally resulted in odd bangs or the table levitating. Then the grand finale would be the appearance of ectoplasm, which was often captured in photography.
Most, if not all, of these ectoplasm photographs have been proven fakes and hoaxes. The ectoplasm was shown to be made from cheesecloth, gauze or other natural substances. Many times the ectoplasm would come out of the medium's mouth or eyes and sometimes it would be fashioned into a face or hand. Hoaxers are very clever in the art of deception.
