An incredibly eerie 'mountain ghost' has been caught on film at the top of an Irish mountain.
The rare phenomenon, known as a Brocken Bow, was captured at the summit of Croagh Patrick in County Mayo by climber Matt Loughrey. An extremely rare occurrence, the phantom is sometimes called the Mountain Spectre or Mountain Ghost. It requires a perfect balance of low cloud and altitude with a sun position behind the viewer for it to appear.
