A man claims to have seen a ghost ship rising and falling in the waves of Lake Superior in Marquette.
Jason Asselin posted a video this week on YouTube showing footage over Lake Superior, clickondetroit reports. A tall, eerie image appears to be moving in the waves.
Asselin says on YouTube: Saturday evening far off coast from Marquette, Michigan appeared this mysterious ship that had to be gigantic! Almost as if a ghost ship was showing itself to the world.. Even if it was a ship, what could be that tall in these choppy waves?
The video had more than about 2,400 views Tuesday morning. Asselin says his YouTube channel features "snowmobile hill climbing, racing, nature scenes, life in upper Michigan, local new stories and many other subjects from upper Michigan and Wisconsin."
The Great Lakes is home to more than 6,000 shipwrecks, the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum estimates, while a historian, Mark Thompson, estimates there are more than 25,000 wrecks. The museum says about 30,000 lives have been lost in Great Lakes shipwrecks.
