A woman caught an unusual sight on her home security camera, with some speculating it is a real alien or a strange creature.
“So I woke up Sunday morning and saw this on my camera and am trying to figure out…what the heck?? First I saw the shadow walking from my front door then I saw this thing….has anyone else seen this on their cameras?? The other two cameras didn’t pick it up for some reason,” Vivian Gomez wrote under a copy of the video she posted to Facebook.
Although the footage is not in color, a small, skinny creature appears to emerge from the parking area of the house. Its footsteps can be heard and its awkward way of walking is clear.
It flaps its arms for a brief moment like a person doing a chicken dance. Its head appears strange.
According to a report from Inside Edition, the creature looks like Dobby the House Elf from the Harry Potter stories.
“We are seeing a lot of similarities between the character Dobby and this ghostly image, so that must be looked at,” said forensic video analyst Conor McCourt, via Inside Edition.
The video has over 45,000 reactions, over 150 comments, and almost 150,000 shares.
Some people think the video shows something very strange, others think it is a rather normal sight.
“hey Vivian Gomez if u look at it really close when video is large it looks like a kid in flip flops and underwear. when he gets to the driveway it looks like he has under wear and shorts or something on its head,” commented Angie N Tom Gonzales, via Facebook.
The same commenter asked Gomez if her son sleepwalks.
“[N]o way,” answered Gomez on Facebook.
“Wow thats crazy Vivian Gomez. Id be spooked it looks like sumn from Men n Black,” commented Staci Jo Thompson, referencing the movie series that deals with aliens.
“If it is real it looks like it’s a child! I would be more concerned a small child is in danger than a ghost. The time frame seems too late for any child to be out. The behavior is really strange too! Send it to the police,” wrote Crystal Cuckow.
Some insisted Gomez intentionally created the video.
“Looks like Dobi from Harry Potter! This has to be a gag video! Are people really falling for this?” commented Crystal Cuckow.
“Crystal Cuckow this wasn’t altered or photoshopped and no trick photography,” Gomez responded.
Okay this is bizarre! Watch the video and tell us what you think it is!

Others also posted photos of Dobby in the comments section, to reinforce the similarity.
When asked where the creature was headed, Gomez is uncertain.
“I don’t know. The video stopped when it was in the driveway,” Gomez responded.
Gomez also tells people who think the creature resembles a child that it couldn’t be.
“[We] don’t have kids in our neighborhood except little ones,” Gomez wrote.

In a follow up report by Inside Edition, Gomez confirms she hasn’t solved the mystery and is still baffled.
In the report, next door neighbor Kelsey Eddy also confirmed there aren’t kids like this in the neighborhood.
“I’ve never seen something like that before in my life,” she told Inside Edition.
Gomez said the creature probably went off into the field across the street from her house.
“That goes for quite a way,” she told Inside Edition. “We have coyotes over there and cattle.”
