This is the moment a mysterious white shape was caught floating on camera – with a mum convinced it’s the spirit of her late nan.
Katie Lynch Rose, 31, says she was trying to record her dog as she got her six-year-old son Jaiden ready for school when she spotted the strange sight earlier this week.
The mum-of-one, from Kings Heath, was shocked to see the curved shape ‘flying’ from one corner of the screen to another as she looked back at the mobile phone recording.
She believes the short clip captures the spirit of her grandmother, Florence Doherty, who sadly died in April this year following a six-month battle with cancer.
“I was getting ready with my son and my dog, and I was trying to take a video because my dog sings when you ask her to go for a walk,” she told BirminghamLive.
“I put the phone on the side and left it on record, then when I looked back I could see a white shape, it shocked me a bit.”
After trimming down the footage, she posted it to paranormal sites – and was told the shape could not be explained.
Others commented that the shape was likely an ‘orb’, she said.
“I put it on a few of the paranormal sites because [my mum] is into that kind of thing,” she explained.
“They said it can’t be explained and it’s definitely not dust as no windows were open. And how the shape moves, it kind of goes to one side then stops and flies back down.
“A lot commented to say it’s an orb, which is like a spirit.
“It’s not just a bit of dust, you can really see it. I did a little experiment after, I put some dust and hair and it’s just totally different, it just goes in different directions, it goes slow then fast.”
Either way, Katie said she felt reassured and comforted by the idea the movement may have been her grandmother’s spirit – as they had a particularly close relationship.
She added: “I was very, very close to my nan, I’ve been having a lot of dreams of her and stuff like that, it was reassuring when I saw it, I wasn’t scared or anything. It was really comforting and nice.
“I’ve just got a feeling it is her. My dad is a bit of a sceptic but he said he’d love it to be [her].”
