Psychokinetic Atmospheric Influence is a result of paranormal activity so intense and concentrated that it begins to affect weather patterns.



The sky was shown to change from a normal sunny day to night-like conditions as Gozer's summoning was effecting the sky itself as it happened over at 550 Central Park West in New York City. This however was referred as the "Coming of Gozer" according to the ideology of the two Terror Dogs Zuul and Vinz Clortho, and even of the Cult of Gozer.

Ghostbusters II

Known as a Slime Eclipse, it was a supernatural event caused by the growing powers of Vigo and the immense energy of the Psychomagnotheric Slime through the increasing negative emotions fed off the citizens of New York. After Mayor Lenny fired his assistant Jack Hardemeyer, the Mayor's attention was directed to look outside his office where a shapeless mass of spiritual ectoplasmic energy surrounded the sky and blocked out the Sun, causing total pitch black night. It wasn't until after the Ghostbusters defeated Vigo that the Slime Eclipse ended.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game

Once again, much like Gozer's summoning, the sky changed due to Psychokinetic Atmospheric Influence of the ghosts released by Walter Peck who were drawn to Ivo Shandor's mausoleum in the Cult of Gozer Cemetery as it infringed upon Central Park.

Tobin's Summary:

When there is a high level of spiritual activity in a concentrated location, the weather often reacts in kind. The resultant storms are usually more than mere severe weather systems and often involve fierce winds and oddly colored clouds.

Egon's Notes:

Due to the sympathetic relationship between PK energy and electromagnetic fields, it is no wonder this phenomenon exists. Couple this relationship with the fact that the barrier between the physical and ethereal planes is usually abnormally thin at these foci and you're bound to witness some atypical atmospheric patterns.

Ray's Tips:

Don't plan any picnics during PK surges.
