Apparitions at ylab’s home at the David Dunlap Observatory are normally of the celestial variety – like the annual Perseid Meteor Shower event, coming up on August 11. Then there’s the odd maker and project appearing at our door, but we’re not as surprised as we used to be at those. Well, most of the time. Emphasis on “odd”.
In the past couple of weeks, there have been numerous sighting of zombie-like creatures, sometimes alone, sometimes in groups, wandering the grounds. Oblivious to the world around them. Mesmerised by little screens held in front of their faces. Like geo-cachers on crack. If you listen quietly, you can hear them utter the same mantra: “poh-kay-mohn” .
But strangest of all was this thing on the side of the DDO’s long, spooky driveway last night.
Do all these apparitions have anything to do with each other?
