10 Real Ghosts That Have Appeared in School Photos

These School Photos Have Captured The Supernatural

5. Class Photo Captures Eerie Figure

Ghost appears in primary school photo - 10 Real Ghosts That Have Appeared in School Photos


This primary school class photo appears to have captured an eerie figure in the top right hand corner of the image. While it could simply be the mottled pattern on the wall that is creating the illusion of a ghost, there is no denying that it really looks like someone is standing there.

You can clearly make out the large, sunken eyes, nose and sinister grinning mouth and the figure appears to be wearing a dark suit and tie with a white collared shirt.

What do you think has been captured in this photo? Is the creepy figure nothing more than a trick of the light or is there actually a ghostly man standing behind these students?

4. Disembodied Hand Appears in Photo

Ghost hand appears in photo of weavers from Northern Ireland from 1900 - 10 Real Ghosts That Have Appeared in School Photos


While this is not actually a photo of a school class, it is a very creepy image nonetheless. Believed to have been taken way back in 1900, the photo is of a group of young weavers. It was recently rediscovered by an editorial team in Northern Ireland while they were searching for photos of extinct professions that were once practiced in the city.

If you look closely at the woman on the right hand side, one up from the bottom you can see that there is a hand on her shoulder!

However, the hand can’t possibly belong to any of the other women in the photo, so who’s hand is it?

Is it possible that the photographer has captured the hand of a ghost or spirit that may be somehow linked to this woman? Perhaps its the hand of a deceased loved one or even a spirit guardian?

Who do you think the mysterious disembodied hand belongs to?

3. Ghost Seen on Thai School Excursion

Ghost seen in photo of school trip to Mae Klong river in Thailand - 10 Real Ghosts That Have Appeared in School Photos


This class photo was taken during a student excursion to the Mae Klong river in Thailand. If you look closely behind the girl in the center of the very top row, you can see what appears to be a ghostly head. Unlike the students in the photo, the mysterious head seems to have a misty, almost see-through quality about it.

While it’s possible that there was a person walking by just as the photo was taken, it seems strange that the photographer didn’t wait for them to leave the shot. Could it be that there was actually no one there when the photo was taken?

What do you think? Has the photographer taken a poorly timed photo or could the mysterious figure in the background be something supernatural?

2. Ghosts Appear in Gymnasium

 Photo of ghost sailors taken in the Ford Island gymnasium at the Pearl Harbor Naval Station - 10 Real Ghosts That Have Appeared in School Photos


This creepy photo, taken by the wife of the coach seen in the picture, was captured inside the Ford Island gymnasium at the Pearl Harbor Naval Station. In the top right hand corner of the photo there appears to be three ghostly figures sitting in the stand.

The building once served as a place for sailors to unwind and relax and included a pool hall, dance floor and bar. Many believe that this photo may have captured the ghosts of three of those sailors that perished during World War II.

What do you think? Has this photo actually captured the ghosts of servicemen from years gone by? Could it be possible that their restless spirits still reside inside the building or is the picture nothing more than a clever Photoshop job?

1. School Girls Capture Ghost in Photo

Photo of ghost in a classroom with two school girls - 10 Real Ghosts That Have Appeared in School Photos


This photo of two girls posing in a classroom somewhere in Asia, has captured a very creepy figure in the background. Of course, it could simply be another student or perhaps even the teacher. But if you take a closer look, you can see that the mysterious figure appears to have no feet! It looks as though it is just hovering above the floor!

From the back, the figure looks very much like an Onryō, a vengeful spirit from Japanese folklore. According to legend, these malevolent ghosts are unable to move on to the afterlife due to strong feelings of anger and hatred. Taking the form they held when they died, an Onryō will seek revenge on those who wronged them while they were alive.

A Buddhist Priest may be required to perform a rite similar to a Catholic exorcism to put these spirits to rest. In many cases however, these vile entities will not leave until they have exacted their revenge.

What do you think this photographer has captured? Could the floating figure actually be a mythological Onryō or is it nothing more than a creepy illusion created by a well timed photo? Let us know in the comments section below.
