Due to the latest developments in thermal imaging technology, thermographers from across the world have begun to notice eerie figure-shaped cold spots in their images. Leading scientists from the University of Oxford suggest this is due to the latest range of cameras being able to detect temperature scales far larger than previously possible, allowing for a greater differential between hot and cold areas.

However, these anomalies are being regarded by some as simply cold pockets of air, and that the theory of apparitions and obscure figures cannot be substantiated with such minimal evidence. This has nonetheless sparked a new trend of paranormal research, as ghost hunters and paranormal investigators from around the world have begun training in thermography to capture one of these apparitions themselves.
