A surveillance camera installed at an intersection in the city of San José, Costa Rica, captured a strange “shadowy spot”, similar to the shadow of a person, that moved on its own (watch video below).
A strange shadow appeared at an intersection in the San Cayetano area around 4:00 am on May 26, 2023, suddenly appearing in the middle of the intersection and quickly “running” from top to bottom, and then from bottom to top.
Then the shadow comes back and starts wandering on the left side. In total, the shadow spot moved under the camera’s sight for 36 seconds.
At some point, its movements look very similar to a human figure, but there were no people or cars at the intersection at that moment.
Journalists talked to some experts in the field of paranormal phenomena and they said that the shadow moves at ground level, which rules out that it is a person, animal, or bird.
They also said that it was impossible to understand from the video what could have created this shadow. When the video went viral on social media, many users thought the “shadow” was actually some kind of flying insect.
Local authorities later interviewed the owners of other buildings at the intersection and they said their cameras showed nothing out of the ordinary that night. However, locals say that paranormal activity often occurs in this particular place near the old bar, although they did not specify which one.
