Photographer Florian Clément was walking on Europe’s tallest sand dune, Dune of Pilat in France, when the incident happened.
The footage pans over the staggering views when a ghostly presence appears in the sky.
It starts following every footstep Florian takes.
The 20-year-old believes the sighting was in fact a phenomenon known as a Spectre of Brocken.
It is caused when an observer’s shadow is blown up to a huge size and cast against a cloud of the right density – causing a rainbow-like halo.
“The phenomenon had already been observed two years ago at this same place, but I just saw some pictures,” he said.
“It appears as a remarkable enlarged shadow cast on a layer of fog and surrounded by a circular rainbow.
“The phenomenon is better known by airplane pilots who are more likely to be able to observe it.”

While the video appears to have a logical explanation, it isn’t always the case with sightings in the sky.
Shoppers were left terrified last year when a human-like figure appeared in the clouds.
And fears of the apocalypse were sparked when a video surfaced appearing to show the sky “cracking open”.
