Anomaly on camera zips across stadium seating in Bolivia

Can we figure out what could be causing this curious anomaly?

This video showing a shadow moving quickly across stadium bleachers has been labeled a “ghost” and of course other stories arise of strange events at the location. I have a feeling this is not a shadow person but a plain old shadow. But I’m not sure if we have enough information to explain it.

‘Ghost’ Rushes Through Fans At Bolivian Football Stadium During Match (VIDEO).

It was captured during a Fox Sports live transmission of Bolivia’s The Strongest versus Defensor Sporting match in the Hernando Siles Stadium in La Paz, Bolivia last Thursday.

The figure appears to go unnoticed by fans it glides past them from the left to the right of the screen.

Could there have been something like a camera or other equipment that passed through the lights from the stadium to make this shadow? Or a film glitch or lens reflection. It’s not that likely that people in the stands would have noticed even a real shadow passing over them.

There are many POSSIBLE ideas that do not need to invoke ghosts as the media does. But, we ask, why does it have to be a ghost? Why can’t it be an alien or an unknown light sucker or vampire or something just as speculative?

Here is the video.

    As I mentioned on the original site: Sure looks like one of those mobile hanging cameras moving across the screen. Just happens to be out of focus.

    I don’t think it’s a field camera. You can see legs pumping as it moves. I think someone is just running along the bench tops of the bleachers.

    A blog about this was posted on Facebook this morning…here is a possible explanation. Read to the bottom for the update as well.

    much better resolution in that explanation. The others must have been recordings of a recording of a TV screen making for that eerie look.

    Ghost.. BUSTED!

    If you look close you may notice there are no other shadows anywhere on or off the field, plus you can clearly see the shadow man’s legs moving as he walks. This is truly an XFile IMO.

    This just looks like a man running to me. It also looks as if that “row” might be a little wider than the rows above and below it. The guy’s fast, but it doesn’t seem that amazing to me.

    If no one is standing in the row, there really may not be anyone to “impede” him.

    The video below (linked from article Angela posted) makes it much clearer that it’s just someone running through the stadium. Their dark clothing, the focus at that distance, and the movement is what gives it a shadowy appearance.

    It seems like this person did that on purpose, the cloth he wear, the way he runs. He was try to look like a ghost or a shadow.
    That just a kind of hoax in the end.

    I was thinking that it looked more like one of those Bigfoot in that Todd dude’s videos. :)

    Wow!
    I’m so…
    So… Underwhelmed.

    I can only assume it was a very very slow night at the stadium. Zeus help us if the bar is now being lowered to this level. Be ready to be overrun with reports of apparitions – particularly those awful types that can move quickly on walkways but have to slow down for stairs.
