A Saudi nursing student said his camera captured what he described as a “giant ghost” by accident while filming the night moon near a beach in the Gulf Kingdom.
His photograph published by a Saudi newspaper showed a large ghost-like image, which the shocked student said shot above him at a lightning speed.
Ibrahim bin Abdullah Al Aini, who is studying nursing at a private college in the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah, said he was walking near the beach at night this week when he decided to take shots of the moon with his mobile phone.
“I aimed my mobile phone at the moon and started photographing…suddenly an image shot through and was instantly captured by my camera…It was really frightening as it looked like a giant ghost,” he said, quoted by the Arabic language daily Sabq.
Aini said he had seen news that the “giant ghost” had been sighted in other countries but no one had been able to capture a clear shot of it. He said he would try to use that image to enter Guinness book of records as “the first clear shot of the giant ghost.”
