A ghost in the attic?
Our panoramic photos are pretty unique as it is, but this one taken at Berkeley's Edward Jenner Museum goes quite a bit further. See why and share your own thoughts on the subject.

BBC Gloucestershire's Chris Sandys visited the Edward Jenner Museum in Berkeley with his panoramic camera aiming to take some unique photos for this website.
Little did he know that the results would prove quite so popular.
The above photo shows the original digital image produced by the camera, with a comparison below, taken four days later.
As soon as taking the above photo, Chris reviewed the image in the camera's viewfinder and noticed the strange formation of light through the doorway.
Double taking between the camera and the doorway, Chris was left with no idea why the digital camera was showing the result it did.

"It's very intriguing," says Sarah Parker, Director of the Edward Jenner Museum in Berkeley.
"You can basically see through a doorway what looks like a figure reclining in a chair, only there is no chair there.
"I don't know whether I believe in ghosts or not but I've never seen a ghost, certainly not in the attic."
Could it be the ghost of Edward Jenner himself?
"Who knows! Or a servant of Edward Jenner? There were soldiers billeted in the attic during the 19th and 20th century, so it could be a soldier!"
