Greetings all,
I have a house in Las Vegas, with a history.
I have camera's by the pool which when motion is detected takes a picture for one minute in 10 second intervals, and have recorded several occasions of some 'strangeness' - the first set (shown below) I discounted as a Mylar Balloon, floating by, but then I had further events.. So now I am back to... I AM NOT SURE..

What do you think



Jonathan

And This taken a few days ago.




Just a few details, This is a Backyard pool, behind a Locked gate.
the incidence have taken place from 11:30PM - 5:00AM

I have looked at moonrise reflecting by the water, and no correlation that I can find.

The "Glowy" effect on all the pictures is probably the IR (night vision) Lights hitting the object
no phenomena there..

What's the history of the house? Does it involve the pool? I'm not saying that nothing was going on out there, but I don't place much stock, would give any weight to photos.

What have you experienced while living there?

Interesting! Photo #1 gives me the willy's, photo #2 is a little more difficult. I'm not sure if it's reflected light or something is starting to form.

We live on haunted land here in Colorado so I know how weird it can get at times.

That being said, it's best to approach things like this from a skeptical point of view. Rule out anything that results from natural causes.

1). Do you have fireflies in Vegas?

2). Does this happen frequently?

3). If so, is there a pattern?

4). What is the history of the house and land?

I'd love to know what you find out.

1). Do you have fireflies in Vegas? NOPE

2). Does this happen frequently? RANDOMLY

3). If so, is there a pattern? NOPE, I WAS HOPING TO FIND A PATTERN

4). What is the history of the house and land? A MAN COMMITTED SUICIDE IN THE GARAGE
(I HAVE A CAMERA SET UP IN THERE AS WELL, WITH NO RESULTS)

I'd love to know what you find out. ME TOO!!!

I thought maybe kids pulling a prank, but its a locked gate, and hard to climb over, the idea of a Mylar balloon also worked out
but I never found the balloon and worse it then happened again later..
I believe in the afterlife, and psychics, But I am a hard cold believer in reality and for me this is a fascination

I set up a camera facing the opposite direction, but the IR light blinded the 1st camera

I also changed camera's and lenses, to make sure it wasn't some 'defect' with the camera.

The search goes on.


One last thing, This is my house in Las Vegas, I live in NY and Las Vegas, only once has this happened when I was in LV.

I asked about fireflies because i've seen "glowing orb" photos that were just that, fireflies and they looked similar.

Your first picture is the interesting one and you confirmed my suspicion, a male entity. Maybe 50ish?

Anyway, talk to him. Explain that it's your house now and he needs to move on.

I burned sage, and welcomed him / it..
I "Feel" nothing in the house, it's quiet..

Maybe they just like my pool!

I can see why, Vegas gets pretty hot. I'd want to hang around a pool too!
