Is this a spirit haunting a cemetery?
The above photo and the other ones in the post were reportedly taken in a cemetery in Ohio. The photographs were supposedly taken by a funeral home employee. The images, to my understanding, were first posted on social media. Many seem to think this a ghost of some sort haunting the cemetery. You can see what looks like fog or smoke as it appears to arise up out of a grave.

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.

 Here are the other pictures from the Ohio cemetery

But as for these photographs from the cemetery, it is easy to see this is not cheesecloth or gauze. It has a more smokey appearance.  My guess is that it is some type of nature phenomenon and just happened to be captured in pictures. Also, I do not know who to credit with taking the pictures, sorry.

What do you think about the pictures?
