AN EERIE pic which appears to show a “demon like ghost” has sent Reddit users into a spin.
The creepy snap, posted on Wednesday, was taken just outside an old Civil War army hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
“Patients were operated on inside the home, and then moved to the field out back where most would die after being placed in tents,” the photographer explained.
“This photo was taken of the tree’s face, and I didn’t notice the figure behind it until this evening.”
I walked all around that field photographing it for the seller, and not once did I see that shape by the fence in person, or in any other shots.”
It soon sparked a feisty debate on Reddit as people questioned what the ghostly figure could be.
“Being a hospital, it would have had nuns, one suggested.
“Look up images for nun’s civil war US - and it’s a striking resemblance. Chilling”
Another concurred “I have to agree, this looks like a military nun or nurse. Interesting catch!
However, some users were less than convinced that it was proof of supernatural beings.
One user said: “This isn't "half decent", it's a blurry picture of what could be literally anything.
“There is absolutely nothing in this photo to suggest that this is anything paranormal.
“It's impossible to tell what the object in the photo is, so why assume it's a ghost?”
Others also pointed out that the object could be something caught in the wind – despite admissions from the photographer that he saw nothing obstructing the buildings view.
One user theorised it was a “Torn plastic bag caught in fence,” while others suggested it was either a tree or a umbrella.
The unusual citing comes just months after a haunted pub went up for sale in Wales.
The pub, which is up for sale for £140,000, is said to have witnessed a number of paranormal encounters including spooky whispers and ghostly figures.
