Ghost hunters -- and those who just like a good story -- gathered at Flower Memorial Library Thursday night to share some of their spookiest encounters.
"Everybody loves a good ghost story," said George Stadalski, who hosted the event.
"It's one of the things, every time there's a campfire the first thing that comes out is a ghost story of some sort," he said.
Stadalski is a ghost expert and has a weekly radio show called the Parascience Journal.
He says while movies and TV shows tend to sensationalize paranormal activity, it's the science behind it that's really fascinating.
"We're trying to help people get a better understanding of the scientific method and what it is that needs to be done to actually capture viable evidence," Stadalski said.
Some people even say they've used digital cameras to take pictures of ghosts. But that's not all.
"The feeling like a spider web across your face for no reason, and it has an electrical charge," said paranormal investigator Sherry Pennock.
"I've felt the cold hit my shoulder and move down my arm and I've also smelled them," Pennock said.
The stories are enough to send a chill up your spine.
Stadalski and others say the stories are getting more and more common as the technology and -- maybe more importantly -- interest about the paranormal continues to build.
