IR behaves a lot like normal light, however I have noticed a few diffrerences -most pigments reflect it, so you will see everything as if it were bleached. -vegetation reflects IR (which should make it easy to see someone in camoflage) -some things appear opaque in visible light & transparent in IR & vice versa. I don't know about the ghosts.
