I was driving home from being elsewhere in town, and as I round the corner to head into the little sub-street network that leads to my house, I see this bizarre, amorphous blob floating in front of my car. From what little I could see of it, it looked like one of those science models where a cell is going through mitosis and there's all the spindles (anaphase for those of you science buffs). It was pale blue with golden spindles within it.
Fluorescent picture of anaphase, to assist in your visualization:
I know that:
A) It wasn't fog, because it wasn't foggy that night at all.
B) It wasn't a refraction of swamp gas, because it was slightly above the level of my headlight and above a roadway, nowhere near a sewer cover.
I have no explanation for the funky-blob, and I didn't get a better look at it because by the time what I had seen registered in my mind I had already passed it and turned onto my street.
I asked a couple paranormal dabblers in my area, one said "Yeah, that's a ghost" the other had no other way to explain it scientifically.
So yes, I saw a ghost and drove through it.
Let it be known that I don't believe in the concept of the 'supernatural' or the 'paranormal;' I believe in science we don't understand. Sure, i'm equivocating to a certain degree, but I know what I saw.
