    You mentioned her dress - did it strike you as being contemporary in style - something that people might have worn at the time you saw her?
    The style didn't strike me. I was ten years old. I just saw the pattern.

    Wow Jim that was freaky as hell, okay I talked to someone that was working the scene when the plane crash happened as they were waiting for more help to haul away bodies they actually brought some and used our parking lot to put some of the bodies before taking them where ever.

    I'm surprised you even noticed the pattern.
    Had it been me, I'm not sure I would have looked back over my shoulder to see it while running away that fast.

    Y'all should set up some kind of low light camera.
    If you can see the shadows darting about, surely a camera could capture them too.

    I'm very skeptical that ghosts or such exist mainly due to lack of verifiable evidence; but I certainly can't offer any explanation for experiences like y'all have recounted here.
    We consider ghosts to be "supernatural"; which of course means that they are not of the natural world. If they were ever proven to exist, the "supernatural" label would have to go away. They would be shown to simply be another aspect, though rarely seen; of our natural world.

    We have had what I call shadow people around our house for several years. They do not bother me. They freak my husband out. You will be in the house during daylight and you will see a shadow person walk by the window outside. Or more than one. Different heights. A lady I work for told me if I see one just go outside and tell them they are not welcome here. She suggested using olive oil to make the cross above all doors and windows which I have never done. I just hope it is not husband's step-brother who was brutally murdered a few years ago or his sister who died at a young age a couple of years ago and was not at peace with her life.

    We had two or three who stayed grouped together in the double wide trailer we lived in. I had always heard they were mean and was scared to death when I saw them in the living room, but they never even acknowledged my presence. Even, so I can't ditch my dread of seeing shadow people--or shadow men as they are sometimes referred as.

    Dang.
    I'm pretty content not seeing too many things I can't explain or understand.

    I'm not an expert by any means on the 182 crash but I have read quite a few things about it. Several people who stay or stayed around the area it happened are even to this day seeing and hearing things. There was a bit about in in an online San Diego mag but the link seems to be dead now. It was sad reading and not for the faint hearted as they had people going into detail about what they saw. I do know the main morgue was at the high school and even for a plane crash, it was gory.

    Back on the ghost subject, it's actually common for people to witness stuff near where crashes occured. One example was the American Airlines 181 crash in Chicago back in 1979. It had just taken off when it got into trouble and doubled back to the airport which was next to a trailer park and just missed it when crashing. For a good time afterwards, the people in the trailer park were having people knock on their doors and windows yet when they checked there was no one there and quite a few claimed they were stopped by people smelling of jet fuel. One was asked the time as the man said he was running late for a flight then walked away, the guy had a weird feeling and when he turned back, the other man had disappeared into thin air and that was when he realised it was a victim from the crash.

    The crash is also featured on one of the Faces of death videos. Saw the shadow figure again last night my camera didn't pick it up will have to see about a night vision one or infrared, the one I used for my paranormal invetigating never got returned to me when a member, who is no longer with my team borrowed it. Yes Shellc they do I have talked to several people and they experience things never did until after the crash.

    My husbands brother was at our house this weekend (all of my husbands family lives about 5 hours away), and he brought his 4 year old with him. The little boy was looking in the curio cabinet in our living room that contains memorials to my dad and my husbands dad. He saw a picture of me and my dad and he pointed at it and said to me “that’s you!” Then he asked who was with me, and I answered “that’s my Daddy” and he said “oh, he was in the kitchen!”

    This made me think of what happened in my family. After Grandpa died, Granny gave his big red toolbox to the youngest grandson, who was almost 16 at the time. Play it forward to 2002, the grandson became a father. No one ever mentioned Grandpa to the little boy. When he was three, he took notice of the toolbox and said, pointing, "That's Papa's toolbox." His parents were astounded. When asked how he knew the box was Papa's, the little boy said, "Papa told me."

    I was gonna say Trump, but he lacks the necessary prerequisite.
    There again, lack of qualification would be no big departure from his current situation.

    Last night I was in the living room and I heard the dog in the kitchen. I turned to look at what the hell he was doing and saw him doing his ‘begging for treats’ routine to the empty chair I usually sit in at dinner time.
    He sits. Then he thinks “maybe they didn’t see how good I sat” and gets up and sits again. Then he was offering his paw to “shake” or “high five” or “knuckles”.
    I was in the living room, hubby was in the shower. Doggy was begging somebody i couldn’t see!

    I have been seeing things out of he corner of my eye for a couple of weeks now. Cannot say what, just enough to make me whip my head around. Not like me , not at all.. It's happening two or three times a day. I 'm not spooked just curious. Any ideas?

    Illegal aliens from outer space with faulty invisibility cloaks?

    I mean, is there some kind of consistency like size or shape?
    Time of day, do they always move from a particular direction to another?
    Dark shape, light shape?

    That's really intriguing.

    Daytime. At night I'm asleep. I see movement, shade and close proximity. I hate to sound creepy, but it's like (sorta) a spider on a web dangling by your head. Just the corner of my eye. I've lived her 13 years and NOTHING ever before.
    That's really intriguing.
    I did that wrong. Anyway, see above answer, because I'd love any input to this weirdness.

    Being a paranormal investigator and what you are describing Lulu, it could be a spirit, most times you don't see them straight ahead but from corner of your eye.

    To offer something from another perspective, there are some known physical conditions that can cause you to see "dark spots" or shadows.
    A couple can be serious, but one of the more common ones is known casually as "floaters".
    Floaters can be dark shapes or spots, they can also be bright little spots that look like tiny little fireflies - sometimes hundreds of them just buzzing around in your field of vision.
    I used to get those a lot in my 30's & 40's especially if standing up or turning quickly, and sometimes when lifting weights. They last for a few seconds and it can be a bit disconcerting the first few times it happens. Floaters are caused when as we age, the fluid in the eyes becomes less viscous and microscopic "chains" or fibers clump together and "float" into your field of vision. In some cases, they appear as dark or shadowy shapes that you see from the corners of your eyes; and when you turn to look directly at them, they seemingly, quickly dart away.

    Here's a resource about floaters:
    https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-...s/syc-20372346

    And here's something you may want to check out just to be sure you don't have anything serious going on:
    https://www.aao.org/eye-health/symptoms/dark-curtain

    And here's one about Shadow People, which is a lot more fun and interesting to read about:
    https://itsblossom.com/dark-figures-...eye-scary-why/

    And that has to be true, the writer even mentions that some of these reports are just too detailed to be false, and we all know that an abundance of details (no matter how improbable) almost always equate to truth.

    And because it's fun and interesting, here's more on Shadow People:

    I've had six, yes six, necessary eye surgeries over the past eight years, and I saw floaters all the time until the very last surgery was performed three years ago. I've got 20/20 vision now and no longer have them. Mine were caused by bits of corneal and retinal scar tissue floating around in the vitreous fluid of the eyes until it was replaced with a gas and my eyes regenerated new vitreous fluid. Good times. Anyhoo, they do cause the shadows and dark spots described.

    White floaters are caused by (very common but not painful) ocular migraines. I used to have those too. Those look like a white crescent (most common) or other shape that quickly floats past the field of vision. My eye surgeon told me about them and that he has them too occasionally when I asked him, "What the hell is that?" and he explained. He told me that when he performs surgeries during his annual Doctors Without Borders trip, he often has to explain them to patients who tell him they are being haunted, and the "white ghost" is moving beside him.

    This is not to say that all hauntings or spirit sightings are bunk, but some are really just eye problems that can be corrected depending on the cause.

    I was sitting here right after we moved in in 2017 and saw a man walk from the bathroom into the living room. And I don't mean out of the corner of my eye. And ever since something--not a shadow or floater, nothing I actually see--causes me to whip my head around toward the door. It never fails to scare the shit out of me. I'm not saying it's the ghost, but it's not my eyes. Maybe I'm just scaring myself. Who knows.
