|Your Personal Logging
Make sure to keep your log up to date and with you throughout the
hunt. Note even the smallest bit of information "it could be
important' to your hunt. Try having two separate people keep a log
and comparing notes after the hunt.
If you use a camera or video recorder make sure the date and time
are correct on the internal imprint. Always make sure your
equipment is clean of a previous hunt before using them.
Good documents can make or break a hunt.
|Current Solar Data (from NOAA)
|Solar Data Readings And What They Mean
Solar X-Ray Monitor Readings:
Solar X-ray flux is quiet.
Solar X-ray flux is active.
An M Class flare has occurred. (powerful)
An X Class flare has occurred. (more powerful)
An unprecedented X-ray event has occurred
Geomagnetic Field readings:
The Geomagnetic Field is quiet.
The Geomagnetic Field has been unsettled.
A Geomagnetic Storm has occurred.
|Basically, If a M, X, or Mega Flare has occurred, and/or the
Geomagnetic Field reads Unsettled or Storm, It's probably good solar
weather for ghost research.

The most important aspects of an investigation are witness
interviews. In most paranormal cases, the testimony of the
eyewitness will decide which direction you may take the ghost hunt.
If the interview is handled correctly, the information gathered can be
very helpful in the rest of the investigation. You must prepare for
each interview before conducting it. The same rules apply whether
interviewing a total stranger or a member of your own family.
Before the interview begins there are some initial rules of ethics that
must be followed:
Never allow yourself to make a value judgment of the eyewitness
based solely on race, education, economic standing, age, sex or
any other external appearance.
Go into every interview believing that the witness is telling the truth.
Be open-minded and considerate of the feelings of the witness.
Make conclusions only on the validity of the story after evaluating
the evidence gathered from the completed investigation.
Be prepared to keep the interview on track and explore every
possibility, natural and supernatural.
Always conduct yourself in a professional manner.
Your first key role in the interview is to make the witness feel
comfortable. The better the witness feels about the interview the
more likely they will be to cooperate without story exaggeration.
Do not conduct interviews with a tired witness. Wait until there is a
better time and the witness is fully rested or the information you
receive may be incomplete.
