I used the levels feature in Photoshop® to make her easier to see.
This was submitted by André who took this photo in Auckland, New Zealand. You have to look close into the bottom window of the house. The lady has dark hair and is wearing what appears to be a chocker. Her clothing is completely out-of-place with the current period. Another spooky factor is she has skeletal face upon closer inspection. This type of apparition is very rare to capture. Seasoned investigators know this. I also see other spirit forms in there as well though I don’t believe to be matrixing. Though not so easy to make out.
I had my first close UFO encounter in January while out prospecting in the desert west of Nelson, Nevada. Now I am paranormal investigation normally I look into the spirit phenomena. When I saw this metallic flying humanoid. It was completely silent and had not I not been looking in the direction I did I would have missed it. I was only half a mile from it (estimated through Google Earth®) and it landed on the desert floor not too far from me. I would have tried to photograph or video it but was mesmerized by what I saw and I would not been able to get my camera out of my backpack in time. Now also I saw a plane and helicopter a that afternoon and I heard their engines well and clear even though they were a lot further away. I raced up and down rocky ravines to get to the landing area. It was self propelled. It looked like the shape of a person on some kind of flying platform (looked like the T1000 terminator when it was morphing and all metallic like mercury). I could not make out details because it was highly reflective and reflected the sunlight. I could not find it when I reached what I believed to be a landing zone.
There was little wind that afternoon. It was not a r.c. type quadcopter (I fly those) -the high vertical proportion would have made it unstable to fly. I was pretty spooked and out of breath by the time I got to the landing zone area. It takes a lot to get me spooked. This is the first time I have spoken publicly about it. I was able to video the part of me hiking like mad to the area(with me out-of-breath) and swearing. It had flown through a gap in the small mountains to the North of me and landed on the ground South of the mountains. I don’t care what people think of me I already pursue spirit phenomena!
I also heard gun shots around that time though it is my assumption that it was people target shooting in the desert as they do. I did also notice an old couple as I was hiking back to my car (at the end of the day) who did not see me hiking back toward them. They strangely were peering into my car windows. They then drove away in a SUV like a Jeep or something heading back toward Nelson as the sun started to set. I was pretty freaked out by what I had seen earlier. I stopped off at the Railroad Pass Casino some 25 miles away to try calm myself down. I am disappointed that I was unable to have my camera out but this I was not expecting and it was only in my visual range for about 10 seconds. It’s a personal experience and I wish that I could have captured or at least have someone else with me at the time.
What was a bit odd was this old couple that wore same heck covered hats that were looking at the interior of my Mitsubushi. Makes me think of the movie “Cocoon” with Steve Guttenberg back in 1985 where aliens were living amongst the humans and had a human outer appearance. Did they have anything to do with this craft/being? I don’t know though it made me wonder.
A small group of us from the original investigation nearly witnessed Jason (usually a solo investigator) getting pushed to his death after being lured up two levels within the mine through male voices via the ghostbox. Hear the ghostly hounds from beyond who’s owners abandoned them to a long death also. This documentary illustrates how dangerous paranormal investigating can be and even more so within the dusty blackness of the mines. Caution to any considering doing this to check that the property is not privately owned and safe enough to venture into (many in which are not). Also with the right safety gear. (Note all mines have an element of risk) The United States Labor Department has a mantra for would be explorers “Stay Out! Stay Alive!” I do echo what they say as person/s are injured or die each year from mine property accidents. You might find ghosts in the mines and perhaps some from more recent times just don’t become one yourself!
From being a young boy I have also had an interest in space. Though getting up there was an obvious problem. I remember going to the headmaster of the primary school I went to at Sherwood School in Browns Bay, Auckland, New Zealand and telling him that a neighbourhood friend and I were trying to make a spacecraft. It was funny we collected all these different old electronic parts and devices though never eventuated to anything of real substance. I recall playing with bottle sky rockets and sometimes doing some very dangerous things. I also launched an water rocket across the street. The neighbours I think were worried about me.
Now I am a paranormal investigator, semi pro photographer and graphic artist. I will be producing a documentary on a prototype weather balloon craft that I have designed and been working on since March of 2010. I hope to break the 145,590.60 ft record.
Now there is something very different about this high altitude balloon project that sets it above all the rest. Traditional only in the sense that latex balloons are being used. What makes this so different is that multiple giant balloons will be used to help with ascending higher. The more room for expansion of the balloon the more altitude it will gain. The latex eventually ruptures due to expansion stress. I am a scuba diver with going under the ocean gases compress the deeper you descend and the more air one needs to stay longer. With ascending into the heavens its the opposite with air pressure. There is another aspect which no one has attempted with this set-up in history (ahem I say no more at this point.) The shape of the payload/s will be much more aerodynamic. No flying boxes. It has proved to be a lot more expensive than I anticipated because of the materials I am using and the sky breaking idea I have. It is named “Black Sky Project.” Now I am hoping this craft will go where no ground launched balloon has gone before. Included in the design is a solar sail. A scientist would tell me I am crazy because solar winds occur where balloons don’t go though I have an ace up my sleeve. This will be similar to NASA’s Echo 1 project in scope. I am seriously considering taking this idea to Kickstarter as it is turning out to be a mammoth endeavor. If this project does what I think it could do it will be a historical event.
I recently attained my amateur radio license to track this craft.

Foxridge Park is located in Henderson, Nevada, U.S.A.
Recently my daughter begged me to take her on a paranormal investigation. My son could take or leave it. The only time I got to do anything near like this as a kid with an adult was when my grandfather took my brother André and I to St. Andrews graveyard in Mt. Eden, Auckland, New Zealand when we were young though more for a scare than ghost hunting. It was near halloween. Foxridge Park has many children that play there in the day time hours. After the protection ritual we donned our ghostly gear.
At one point Shannon, my daughter called out to me exclaiming something had pulled on her necklace! At first I thought my daughter’s necklace got caught on something. She was adamant that something had pulled on her necklace. I could not see anything at the time because it was dark and we were videoing with infrared and full spectrum cameras. My daughter was still feeling pretty shocked after the experience. It wasn’t until we reviewed the footage that we could see it actually happen (I didn’t know if I had captured it or not at the time). I am more pointing to it being snagged to the camera bracket going by what sounds like the necklace colliding with the bracket though at first appearance the whistle on the end of the necklace does seem to float there for a moment but perhaps I’m wrong. Just because you want something to be the case does not make it so. I even did a necklace snagging scenario experiment. Shannon was pulling on the string through her fingers to try to figure out what was taking place. With her slight pulling on the string should have registered some swaying movement on the whistle itself unless something was holding the whistle itself. The actual screw piece that binds the camera base to the bracket is wide and if it got wedged in the tight space there the string would not have fallen out easily.
One of the things I find frustrating with some of the paranormal shows on TV is you will hear them say “Did you see that?!” and not actually capture what they saw. I started using a full spectrum point-of-view head video camera to capture all that I see. Makes me look like a cyborg but for practical purposes it’s a great idea. One must go later at night here when there are fewer people around-it’s quieter and less distractions. I know some think its stupid to go out at night. You have to find out around what time the reported sightings occur for one. You could say that anything experienced is a result of fear of the dark and/or imagination.
More ghost box interactions. Are the direct responses just a result of Pareidolia? Pareidolia, a phenomenon in which the human brain recognizes shapes or patterns in random images or sounds. Some time in the future I am going to take the box to a location where it is very hard to receive any radio signals.
