An alleged ghost was picked up on camera by Google Maps Street View on a woodland footpath.

The eerie image shows only the upper body of a woman in a grey cardigan, floating as she looks down at her iPhone with the rest of her body missing.

Having only half her body is not the only creepy reason why ‘the spirit’ has caught the imagination of Reddit users, as she appears to possess an oversized hand with two additional fingers.

The bizarre image of a gloomy forest with a leaf-strewn path running through it was taken in Massachusetts, USA and went viral after being posted to content-sharing site Reddit.

A user who uploaded the photo to Reddit speculated it was a visitation from the afterlife, captioning the shot: “Ghost lady.”

“Ah, a ghost! You must be guarding this valley!” another joined in.

“Extra fingers as a bonus creep,” a third said.

Others took the theory further, joking: “This a surprisingly good picture of this person, lighting and all. A great demonstration of how ghost tech works. Pretty cool how Google is using this!”

Some liked the photo. “This is oddly beautiful,” one wrote.

Another commented: “Looks like an indie album cover art.”

The confusing photo is likely to have been created by the woman unknowingly walking into the shot as it was taken by Google Maps Street View.

Google’s 360-degree cameras shoot multiple pictures to create a seamless image, knitting several images together but someone moving can skew the image.
