    The presence of light is what determines a spectre.  A spectre will emanate particle behavior beyond the constituent ghost.  A ghost is a gaseous apparition that is limited in its emissions.  A ghost travels along a limited time space continuum.  Where as a spectre can transcend different states of matter, speed and light.

    1) Just a fancy archaic name for an "Apparition" attributed to a "Ghost"

    2) A sunlight/weather phenomenon, often observed in northern mountainous climates--an examples are the "Sun Dog" (a floating bright spot) and  the Brocken Specter where an enormous shadow of an observer can be seen in the clouds surrounded by a "halo" effect. (Look it up)

    Many "Ghosts" can be traced to such #2 type weather phenomena Witnesses attributed then to the "spirits of the dead" (Ghosts) if an effort to explain them----Now, just because ghosts and spirits do not really exist does NOT mean the Spectres  do NOT----

    Aside from hoaxes and hallucinations, there are both well known and not so well known REAL phenomena out there, that lead to and reinforce the "Ghost" myth as a desperate witness'  attempt at an explanation.   

  • Spectres appear in formal clothing with neatly pressed trousers, ghosts just turn up in an old nightie and unbrushed hair.

    They are the same - and they are both fiction.

    What is a "regular ghost"?

    Nothing, they mean exactly the same thing.
