Welcome to Obiwan’s Ghosts & Paranormal, formerly known as Obiwan’s UFO-Free Paranormal Page. This website has operated continuously since 1994 and is open to stories from both believers and skeptics. I focus on ghosts, hauntings, true ghost stories, ghost lights (aka spooklights or earthlights), the Ouija, spooky urban legends, weird creatures, mysteries, and other strange phenomena. This website does not report on UFOs, aliens, conspiracies, or religious phenomena.

For a complete list of articles available on the website, see the Site Index.

Obiwan is me! I am the sole owner, writer, and operator of ghosts.org. My real name is Elisabeth Busch and I live in Las Vegas, but was born and raised in New England. The name “Obiwan” is one I picked up in college in the early 1990s when people still used screen names exclusively to communicate. I became “known” early on in the paranormal community for maintaining the FAQ and true ghost stories FTP archives for the alt.folklore.ghost-stories USENET newsgroup. In 1994, I created a companion website to the FTP site, and the rest is history. Besides ghosts and spooky things, I also write about baby name trends.

Note: The site owner maintains this website as a hobby, is not a “ghost hunter” or a psychic, and makes no claims regarding the existence of paranormal phenomena or cryptids. ¬†Original content on this site is Copyright obiwan@ghosts.org 1994-2021.
