Check out this picture I snagged off Mount Rainier National Park’s Paradise web cam last night.
At first glance, the camera seems to have captured a ghost hovering above the trees. More likely, however, this is a wormhole to another dimension.
Jeff e-mailed park superintendent Dave Uberuaga this morning to get an explanation.
Uberuaga will likely tell us it’s something like light reflecting off a rain drop on the camera lens. You now, typical government cover-up stuff.

I spoke with our IT staff and they say that it is a problem in the camera that causes a reflection in the lens. Apparently pretty common at night given the right conditions. We are confident it is not any of your suggested causes. If you would like to speak with the IT folks who administer this camera, I would be happy to coordinate.
