I first heard about SASPR while working in Alberton about two and a half years ago. I was fascinated, as we do not have anything nearly as exotic in the Eastern Cape. So I joined the mailing list online. I am still to accompany the guys on a haunting investigation. (Hey, it's a night out, isn't it? Cheesy) Unfortunately most of the paranormal activity appears to be concentrated in and around Gauteng.  And oh, they are looking for volunteers to assist - maybe a skeptic or two could prove useful. Here is a link to the report of a recent investigation to illustrate what the society is about. There are even some recordings of a few eerie activities.....

Hehe, looks like huge fun, actually. But their EVP was disappointing, to say the least. I guess I don't quite have the required imagination to be able to hear the ghosts.

Hey, I can see the ghost:



At least now that I GIMPed it in there. With all the other pictures, it is not at all clear to me what I'm supposed to be looking for.

You can see three ectoplasm-like "orbs" floating just below the knotty pine ceiling. They are reportedly associated with paranormal activity ... or the want of a microfibre lens cloth - I can never remember.

Herewith the nitty-gritty low-down on doing a scientific investigation into the paranormal, (in case you were wondering). Gotta love the PPE at 6:00.
