14. Question: How far away from window is that couch?
Please note black border on right side of window now larger in the second shot than first shot.
This leads me to believe that you shifted to the left slightly for second shot. IF the couch is away from the window that shift could have placed an object (cat???), resting in that spot into a silhouette back-lit by the window. Try this with your bigger enlargement: hold a finger out about 3 inches away from screen so it hides the mysterious dark head-shaped spot. Now move your head slightly left and then slightly right. Notice how your finger can fall back into the shadowy area to the left of that spot or back out into the lit window area to the right of that spot as you shift your head.

The question to ask is how far away from that window is that couch? If it is right up against that window then I doubt your slight shift could have made any difference but if that couch is more than a few feet away from that window, we then may have an explanation as to why the shape appears in the second but not the first shot. Is it possible that something was resting on the back of that sofa, perhaps a cat and in your first blurred shot, the object would have been in the shadowy area but when you shifted to the left slightly for that second shot it was enough for the object to now become silhouetted by the window? I suspect that should you submit these for analysis by the 'ghost-hunter' types they will be asking this same question.

I do btw believe in ghosts, the fact that we do not (through science) understand ghosts YET does not mean that they do not exist...There is too much anecdotal evidence that suggests that something unexplainable is going on....ghosts works for me as well as any other theory but I am not at all sure what ghosts are.
