Moment Couple Capture Actual Footage Of Egyptian Spirit In Museum
Ghost beleive to be Ancient Egyptian priest
A 'ghost hunter' couple may have made history as they capture actual footage of a spirit believed to be the ghost of Ancient Egyptian priest, Nesyamun, who was haunting the museum were his mummy lies.
The jaw-dropping clip, Ghosts Hunters Sean Reynolds, and Rebecca Palmer's equipment can be heard malfunctioning before a dark shadow can be seen walking in front of the camera and into the tomb.
The couple was filing for a paranormal TV show at Leeds City Museum in March this year when the appropriation was captured.

TheDailyMail reports: The museum holds the tomb of ancient Egyptian priest Nesyamun who died more than 3,000 years ago - and whose spirit Sean believes they encountered that night.
Sean from Liverpool, Merseyside, said: 'All the equipment was going crazy and that only happens if something sets off the alarms.
'It was Jane our camera lady who saw the shadow. We didn't at first so we just had to trust that it would be there.
'When it came to editing the video we were praying it wasn't just something she had seen with her own eyes. It was great to see we had actually got it and it's so clear.
'The top of the shadow was in the shape of a pointed hood and it walked straight into the tomb on the right. It's the tomb of a priest called Nesyamun. I definitely think it could be his spirit.
'From what I know, the museum is meant to be quite active with reports of Nesyamun being seen.
'As much as I believe in the paranormal I like to be sceptical so the first thing I do when we capture something is try to debunk it.
'For one of us to create that shadow there would have had to be light behind us but there wasn't. And there wasn't anyone walking behind us.
'And you can tell where there is actually something there, you can definitely sense it.'
Paranormal TV producers Rebecca and Sean use a REM pod, which emits an electromagnetic field, and a shadow detector - both of which can be heard going off in the video.
The couple, who live in a cemetery, started ghost hunting when they got together and have done TV series such as The PAST Hunters and Ghost Dimension.
Sean's first encounter with the spirit world was when he was 15 and woke in the middle of the night to the ghost of a 'big fella' sat on the end of his bed wearing a lumberjack jacket and stroking his dog.
Sean said: 'It all started when I was 15. I remember waking up and my dog Sam was asleep on the end of my bed and when I moved the cover I could see this guy sat stroking him.
'A big ghostly fella and he was wearing a lumberjack jacket. Being a teenager I just pulled the cover over my head and went back to sleep.
'But when I told my mum the next day, she told me it sounded exactly like someone she knew who had died.
'I never stopped believing but I didn't get back into exploring the paranormal properly until I met Rebecca.'
Nesyamun's mummy was moved to Leeds City Museum in 1823 and has been recognised as one of the most remarkable mummies in Britain.
A spokesman for Leeds City Council said: 'Nesyamun has always been one of our most popular exhibits and his incredibly well-preserved remains and captivating story have fascinated generations of museum-goers.
'Whilst we're not aware of any reports of paranormal activity at the museum, our Ancient Worlds gallery is a very atmospheric place which often captures the imaginations of visitors.'
