Ghost Encounter: Solid Black Figure in Woods

by Cyndi
(Bucyrus, KS, USA)

I was taking a nature walk pretty deep in the woods on a mulched trail, with bare trees all around. It is mid March here, and the trees are still bare, so no leaves or anything to block the view between all the trees.

I have taken this path many times, I take my dog and we go for exercise. I was just walking, enjoying the scenery, when just ahead, amongst the trees, I'd say about 75 yards, I saw a tall SOLID black figure, I couldn't see any feet, it was just over a little hill, and it was moving so fast, I thought "WHAT was that?" I told myself it's probably just a person (a man?) with a black hat on running on a trail ahead of me and I would see it (him?) when I reached that point. Well, as I approached near where I saw this figure, I realized it was a dead drop off cliff, and there was no way anyone was running there. The trail actually goes to the left to go around it, and where I saw this thing was to the right on the edge of that cliff. I realized it was moving so fast because it was probably floating... not running. I saw it moving for a good 3 seconds. I know I did not imagine this. It was as solid black as a black can get. It had definite form, not misty at all. The top of it (the head?) was shaped almost like a rooster's tail.

So I thought it was just some guy running fast with a tall funny hat! That thing just vanished and I didn't see it again. I have not told anyone about this, I assume they would think I were crazy. I would like to know what this was.

Very tall, black, footless figure
by: Anonymous

I live in a house with a small public grassy field behind. It was barely dawn and I heard rustling grass so I glanced out of my bedroom window and saw what looked like a tall black figure moving very fast through the field. It seemed to float. This continued for two to three seconds and then it travelled out of my sight.

Very familiar. . .
by: Oddball

When i was about 8 years old, I saw something very similar in my bedroom door. No features, just a shape. It was there every morning for a week, at dawn, with the light behind it - it was silhouetted, with sunlight streaming around it.

I found, on the second morning, that I could walk straight through it as though it wasn't there. (I still can't believe I went up to it. Brave. . . or stupid?) Up close, it was still completely opaque.

Anyone know what these are called?

Not exactly sure where you are talking about
by: Interested

I live in Bucyrus Ks and own one of the oldest buildings here. I don't have a clue where you would be talking about. Bucyrus is farmland, fairly flat, some wooded areas but owned by mainly one or two families. I don't recall any trails or cliffs in this area at all.

This encounter may have been a residual energy. You may have witnessed a suicide from long ago.
