CCTV camera films mystery ball of light at Carlisle community centre

A community centre is at the centre of a fascinating mystery after one of its security cameras captured a spooky dancing light.
Have your say
The light is clearly a spiritual orb, but these phenomenon are only associated with a spirit in transit at the time of death, and not with haunting. They are also associated with people and not places, and as Gareth Weber was alone in the building at the time it appeared, he must be the person the spirit was trying to contact. The dying person need not even be on the same continent, let alone in Carlisle. These sightings were just taken for granted when people passed away before the invention of electrical light. Doors frequently bang, pictures fall off walls, and glasses shatter at the same time as these orbs appear. They are less likely if relatives are present at the bedside at the time of death, more likely if the death happens alone or is traumatic.
Hardly a "dancing light"... "a vague smudge moving in a short way in a straight line along a wall" would have been more appropriate...but not as snappy!
It amazes me how easily these (non)stories get published. Is the good old N&S so desperate for filler?
