We hosted our annual Ghost Hunt with listeners over the weekend. This year's location: Old Mill Village in New Milford.
All of the buildings in the village are very old. Most came from different locations. They all have a bit of a history with the paranormal. This combined provided a great backdrop to this year's hunt.

This hearse was parked in the front of the museum--"It drives dead people!"
Sue's excited about what she's captured in her camera

The term orb describes unexpected, typically circular artifacts that occur in flash photography — sometimes with trails indicating motion — especially common with modern compact and ultra-compact digital cameras.
Another orb in the school house

What was that???
One of our listeners suddenly became possessed!!!
(Ok, it's just her contacts, but still freaky looking.)
Look closely and you'll see an orb by the old covered bridge
We were getting some high EMF readings near the shoulder of one of
the dresses hanging in the museum
An EMF meter (or EMF detector) is a scientific instrument for measuring electromagnetic fields (abbreviated as EMF). Most meters measure the electromagnetic radiation flux density (DC fields) or the change in an electromagnetic field over time (AC fields), essentially the same as a radio antenna, but with quite different detection characteristics.
Look closely at this photo and you'll see that I'm intent on getting an
updated score on the World Series!
If you were on our Ghost Hunt this year and took any interesting photos, email them here and I'll add them to our Blog:
Thanks again to Kevin, Jo and the rest of the crew from the Central PA Paranormal Research Association, the staff @ Old Mill Village, Nasser Limo and the fun bunch of listeners that hung with us in the dark.
A few had more unusual experiences then we did. You'll be hearing all about it when we're back on the radio Wednesday morning!

Just received this email from one of our listeners. Cool stuff!
Thanks so much for allowing me and my friend Melissa to join you guys. We had a blast!!!
Here are some of the pictures I gathered. There are not many and some of them I am not really sure of the "orb" existing since some of it might be dust but I have attached what I thought was good.
Ghost Hunt 030 shows an orb up toward the ceiling over Rocky.
Ghost Hunt 034 shows an orb on the chalk board. It is an oddly shaped one but very bright.
Ghost Hunt 050 is the picture i got in the Carriage House. I showed Kevin right after I got the picture and he said that it was a moving orb!
When we went to the Mercantile there was not much going on there. However, Ghost Hunt 143 was taken in the mercantile. It shows an cloudy orb in the upper corner. Ghost Hunt 149 also shows an orb and Ghost Hunt 150 shows orbs as well. Take a look at the person in the corner...she looks creepy with her glowing eyes!
Ghost Hunt 163 shows a bright small orb behind the bridge where there was supposedly a "malevolent' being. I do not have any evidence of the "black shape" I "ran into" and encountered near the bridge at the end of the night. I am not sure if perhaps Kevin got evidence of that but it was pretty exciting.
When I "ran into" the black shape near the bridge my camera just shut off. IJust shut off. I just changed the batteries so it was not the batteries. This happened very often that night in various places. I would be using my camera and it would just shut off but it happened more at the bridge than anywhere else.
So, a couple pictures to share. Perhaps they are really orbs or perhaps they are dust or moisture but I must say I am a tad closer to being a curious semi-believer.
