Engraving of the Hammersmith Ghost in Kirby's Wonderful and Scientific Museum , a magazine published in 1804 [ 1 ] In traditional belief and fiction , a ghost (sometimes known as a spectre (British English) or specter (American English), phantom , apparition or spook ) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living.

By Daniel Miller UPDATED: 11:42 GMT, 4 September 2011 Haunting images taken in a town close to Japan's stricken Fukushima nuclear plant have been released showing a community frozen in time. The new set of photographs, taken in the town of Futaba 12 miles from the Fukushima plant , bear grim similarities to those taken in Pripyat, two miles from the Chernobyl power plant.

In many costal areas throughout the World, various species of Ghost Crab ( Ocypode spp.) can be found haunting sandy beaches at low tide. I observed these Ghost Crabs on the shore of the Pacific Ocean in Drake Bay, Costa Rica.

In Chile, a woman named Cecilia Muñoz went on a ghost hunting expedition to a building that is notorious for reports of a ghost of a little girl that is said haunts the basement level of the building. Cecilia and her mother decided to make a visit and do some amateur ghost hunting of their own. Given that there was no real activity captured the first few hours, her mother suggested that she go down to the basement with a group of children. The mother theorized that if there was a ghost of a young girl, then the ghost would feel more comfortable around children and possibly make an appearance. What follows next is a video that shows three young men and a young girl being recorded throughout a basement.
