We’re not exactly sure what this could be lurking in the waves, but it’s pretty freaky

This footage comes to us almost right on time for Halloween! A ghost-like apparition of a ship was spotted in the waters of the world’s largest freshwater lake, like a mirage on a hot summer’s day.

These <a href="https://rumble.com/v3o635-ghost-man-captured-on-cctv-saving-little-girl-crossing-road.html" target="_blank">ghost</a> ship sightings are a pretty-much-never in a lifetime experience, but it just must’ve been Jacob Asselin’s lucky day. Jacob spotted the eerie-looking vessel while he was sailing just off the shores of Lake Superior and uploaded the video YouTube. He wrote the following description along with it:

"Saturday evening, Oct 8, 2016, far off coast from Marquette, Michigan appeared this mysterious ship that had to be gigantic! I was filming a music video of Nashville recording artist Kevin B Klein playing his new song "My Michigan" and we wanted to see the sunset before a long drive that evening."

The hazy blur of what the netizens jokingly call the Flying Dutchman has set the internet ablaze. Jacob says that he isn’t sure what he was seeing in the blurry distance and, to be honest, neither can anyone else.

Haunted ship sightings aren't unheard of in the region. There are more than 6,000 known <a href="https://rumble.com/v36c9h-10-mysterious-shipwrecks-that-remain-unexplained....html" target="_blank">shipwrecks</a> in all of the Great Lakes, and more than 200 just in the 80-mile stretch of Lake Superior off Whitefish Point, not far from where Jacob was shooting the video. According to Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum Executive Director Bruce Lynn: "If there was a ghost ship sighting, this would be the place for it."

    That didn't really look like a ship to me. Could that be something like an optical illusion or mirage where temperature, pressure,location, etc. allows the atmosphere to act as a lens that carries an image of the top of a tall building/industrial facility and stack/tower many, many miles?

    That is that research vessel that sinks it's bow into the water and stands up vertically. Not sure if it is looking for oil or what.

    Easy one, that's a floating drilling/production platform. If it was moving, it could be being towed, or some are self propelled. I have helped design many platforms of different design. In the past, they used to have what is called a Jacket, that was a huge structure that sat on the ocean floor, and the platform sat on top of that. In those days, there was a platform for drilling, and one different one for production. The drilling platform had to be removed before the production platform was installed. These days, they are usually a single platform, designed to do both. Also, all modern platforms float, and either anchored to the sea bed, or have propeller stabilizers, to keep then stationary.
