Jennie Wade House ghost

Photo: Patty Ceran
This photo was taken on Sept. 23, 2008 at the Jennie Wade house in Gettysburg, PA. The photo is a reflection in a mirror that hangs in one of the upstairs bedrooms. What I believe is in the photo is an image of a young man sitting on the bed. If you look closely, you can see the wooden bottom rail of the bed and the white area is the quit. However sitting sideways on the edge of the bed is the figure. I have the orginial on the photo chip so proof of ownership and the date can be proved.

So what is it? An optical illusion on the reflective surface of the mirror? Just dust and haze on the glass? Or has Patty captured an image of a real ghost? Some researchers think that spirit images are more easily seen or photographed as reflections in mirrors. What do you think?
