Haunted object? Or haunted person? Ghostly images of Titanic replica.

Portsmouth man says ‘Titanic’ replica could be haunted

It’s been 100 years since the RMS Titantic struck an iceberg and sent more than 1,500 souls to their watery graves.

In 2004, a Portsmouth man completed a replica of the ship – nine feet long, weighing more than 200 pounds.

But according to the builder — the museum quality replica has recently acquired something that may now qualify it as a ‘ghost ship’. Who knows what lurks inside this replica of the ill fated RMS Titanic?

The builder told Barbara Ciara that you can’t see it with the naked eye, but he took a photograph of the boat that revealed what he thinks are two ghostly images.

“I couldn’t make it out until I looked at it very carefully and I found it was a bald headed man with a handle bar mustache, and I said to myself, what’s he doing there? Maybe it was someone that was aboard the Titanic that found a new home for himself.”

Mr. Moore admits he was engrossed in his project. And, it IS a spectacular replica with tremendous attention to detail. But, watch the video below and take a look at his “images” of what he claims are a man and a woman in the portholes. The pictures are the effect of pareidolia – where we see faces where there really are none. The premise of his claim raises many questions. The obvious one being – why would a model replica be haunted? It’s not. There is no reason to think that. Yet, it is true that, everyday, people say they see things that aren’t there. And the news will report stories that should be left as personal beliefs. Anyway, it was nice to Mr. Moore’s work and I hope he gets his museum space so others can enjoy it.

    Why would his face be sideways? Is he laying down looking out the porthole?
