Through the Lens of Tom Halstead

“Blue Ghost”

Here is a clip of a spectacular video capture taken in a basement of the now closed Tri-County Truckstop (formerly the Diamonds Restaurant) in Villa Ridge, Missouri. Tom set his digital camera on a tripod in video mode at 15 frames per second to get a longer recording. A nearby 60 watt fixture lit the scene. This capture happened during a basement lock down. The 18 second video of this was featured on Fox 2 News in St. Louis and is available on YouTube.

Others have witnessed this blue anomaly. A police officer on traffic patrol at 2 a.m. reported seeing it "walk" by one of the windows on the first floor!
