The optical illusion, pictured at dawn in the Tatra mountains, is actually what is known as a 'Broken spectre', a phenomenon which occurs when there's a low sun shining behind someone looking downwards into fog from a ridge with their shadow projected forwards.
The illusion can appear on any misty mountainside or cloud bank, or even on some occasions, from an aeroplane.
The extraordinary sight involves the light behind a climber casting their shadow often in an odd triangular shape.
The shadow can also fall on water droplets of varying differences from the observer's eye causing confused depth perception.
Amazingly, the ghostly figure can sometimes appear to move rapidly when the cloud layer moves or there are variations in its density.
The head of the figure is often surrounded by rings of coloured light - caused by light diffraction.
The Brocken spectre got its name because of early sightings on the Brocken, the highest peak of Germany's Harz Mountains.
German scientist Johann Silberschlag first observed the phenomenon in 1780 but since then they have been seen and recorded many times in the region.
Among mountain climbers though there is a superstition that whoever sees a Brocken spectre will die in the mountains the very next day.

Frost has previously performed with Gorgoroth, Zyklon-B, Gehenna and Keep Of Kalessin. He originally joined Satyricon temporarily to record the demo "The Forest is My Throne", later joining the band full-time. He currently studies at a mathematics college in Oslo.
Frost employs various drumming styles when performing with different bands. With early 1349 and early Satyricon he extensively uses blast beats. His recent work with Satyricon is more simplistic and mid-tempo, as is his work on "Revelations of the Black Flame", 1349's fourth album. On 1349's fifth album "Demonoir", however, Frost once again makes extensive use of blastbeats. He is generally regarded as one of the most proficient and fastest drummers in the black metal scene. On all Satyricon albums his role is credited simply as "battery".
Frost was denied entry to North America by the US Department of Homeland Security upon failing to note having been sentenced to 5 months for assault (during a bar fight in the early '90s) when applying for his work visa. On 1349 tours before 2008, he was replaced by Tony Laureano. Joey Jordison and Trym Torson have performed with Satyricon on North American tour dates.
He appeared in the documentary film Until The Light Takes Us as part of an art piece featuring him firebreathing and cutting himself with a knife.
