The video was removed. It's a shame. I wanted to see that.

Here it is:


Watch chilling moment 'GHOST' smashes glass door in 'haunted' auction house - YouTube

Very weird that it would just shatter like that but still not necessarily paranormal.

hmmm... very interesting.

Either the glass door opens by itself and then shatters, or the glass pops out of the frame and then shatters.
I wish they'd show the glass breaking from the front. Either way, it is strange.

oh, thanks for finding the video and posting a good link!

As the wood framing ages it warps. That changes the tension on the glass.

Pop!

No ghosts here folks.

Something similar happened in my yard just yesterday,
I have motion detection lights placed on the facia of my house.

These are the ones that use a spot light.
In the middle of the day, and for no reason at all, one of them burst the glass front that covers the bulb.
Have no idea what caused it.

Good thing I was not close to it when it smashed on the driveway.
It just exploded, and sounded like gunfire when it happened.
The bulb was still intact, only the face of the light exploded.
Bob.

Glass can 'randomly' shatter for all kinds of reasons.
As mentioned, a wood frame that changes the tension and pressure upon the glass.
The glass could have been a faulty sheet from the start and taps and vibrations in the right places can continue to weaken the integrity of the glass. So it comes to a point where it can no longer hold itself together.
Microscopic fractures in glass and the expanding and contracting of glass due to temperature can also cause glass to shatter.

What is the biggest 'freaky' thing here to me is the nature of glass.
We sense that it is a solid, however, it is a super cooled liquid.

For those wondering what could have smashed the glass; maybe a next door neighbour found out about Sprint?

Just kidding. Video link included to get my joke; not for advertising.
