On Evidence

What do we actually mean when we are talking about evidence?

Orbs ARE a load of balls

Para.Science have been using the latest stereo imaging techniques to prove, once and for all, the origin of that well known phenomenon, the orb! This article outlines the extensive work that has been undertaken by Para.Science since this new technology became available in Autumn 2009.

Equipment - What, How and Why

Para.Science gets a lot of emails every week from people asking about the equipment we use for paranormal investigation. In this article we have tried to provide answers to the most frequently asked questions that relate to the equipment we use in this research and investigation. It also discusses the things we are looking for with that equipment and why we are looking.

General Procedures for Paranormal Investigators

Reproduced from the notebooks of famous ghost hunter Harry Price the following instructions are still surprisingly valid today and make an excellent basis for the modern ghost hunter.

Some Musings on Things Paranormal

Tricks of the Mind

PThe field of paranormal investigation, specifically the process of actively hunting for ghosts, can be at best an inexact science if indeed it can be classed as a science at all. At worst, it can provide the material for fully fledged flights of fantasy, even in the most apparently down-to-earth of characters. To this end, we present a brief overview of the most common misperceived events that may occur during an active investigation.

Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Meters - Some Guidelines for Choosing and Using

An explanation of why we measure electromagnetic fields whilst investigating, what equipment to equip yourself with and most importantly how to use it.

Thermometers - Guidelines for Using Thermometers

Thermometers of all types are amongst the most useful tools for paranormal investigation. Many people will have heard reports of or even experienced a temperature drop before and during paranormal activity. In reality the temperature may also rise at these times. It is important therefore to be able to measure this change in temperature both as early warning and possible confirmation of a potential paranormal event-taking place.

Obtaining Images

Perhaps the most sought after evidence by all investigators of paranormal phenomena is visual evidence. A picture speaks a thousand words as the saying goes. Images can take the form of still pictures from both film and more recently digital cameras and also video footage from both analogue and digital camcorders. This article is not an in depth technical description of the various means of producing still and moving images there are many resources available to those interesting in such things. It is instead a discussion of the relative advantages and disadvantages the various methods offer to those who wish to make use of them in support of their own paranormal investigation requirements.
