Alleged photographs of ET beings:

Some hoaxes have been widely, acceptably or completely "debunked" as such, yet their authors still claim that their pictures are genuine, or their promoter never informed that the hoax was exposed. Here are a few examples.


After gathering and investigating many alleged photographs of extraterrestrial beings, my overall impression is that most of them are proven hoaxes, some of the rest might be genuine or hoaxed. But it is not within my range of competence to qualify each photograph as hoax or genuine. I am not claiming any kind of "truth," I have no desire to "convince" any one in any way, I have no certain "final word" explanation for most of the pictures presented here.

This section of the site is only intended as a recollection of such photographs and offers comments from various sources, "as is." I appreciate every precise information item you might offer.

Careful: some of these pictures are rather disturbing, even in the cases of proven hoaxes. Please leave this page now if you are not willing to confront disturbing or frightening pictures.

Photographs considered to be hoaxes but not confessed hoaxes:

The "Nazca alien mummies", 2017:

In the end of 2016, a Peruvian citizen under the alias of "Krawix" shows on his homemade videos on Youtube what he claims to be alien mummies found in Nazca, Peru.

What this is really worth is exposed here.


The "Great Scientists" reveals aliens on his UFO picture:

On September 2, 2009, the low-credibility website UFOdigest published an article from one Ronald Nussbeck who claimed that "Ron S. Stewart", called "Principal Scientist in the World in Images", took UFO pictures in Texas in the Summer of 2005; which, via an alleged invention of digital imaging by the latter, reveals aliens at the UFO portholes.

What this is really worth is exposed here.


Venusian woman according to Howard Menger:

The reader who forwarded this image to me on June 14, 2003, indicated: "Here a curious photograph, it was taken in 1956 in the USA, the witness claims that an entity attacked with "a ball which throws flashes" right after the photograph is taken, according to certain sources there had also been a UFO observation at this time."

"Note that the creature does not really have shoulders and a rather disproportionate head (a helmet?)"

"Does this picture deserve to be published on your site?"

Well, yes, I answered, but in the lacking-sufficient-data category for the moment of course.

In 2007, two other readers indicated to me, independently, the origin of the picture.

It appears that it comes from the book by the "contactee" Howard Menger, "Mes Amis, les Hommes de l'Espace", Dervy publishers, France 1965, previously published in 1959 in the US. The image is numbered "16" and is on page 128 with a comment indicating that it is a "Photograph of a Venusian woman" who, equipped with a diving-suit, left the spacecraft and approached Mr. Menger, then used a luminous device that she carried and disappeared. A "man from space" who stood beside her then told Mr. Menger that she "returned into the spaceship."

I consequently moved the image from the category "insufficient information" to the present category, since there are no women living on Venus.


It was a dubious photograph, hoax now exposed:

Before January 2001, I had this picture in the "probable hoaxes" category with my following comment: "Proposed many times with various captions such as "an alien skull from Vietnam", then as "an alien skull found in the archives of Vatican" by several web sites devoted to sensational news rather than serious research, this picture has seemingly little to offer in its defense."

In January 2001, a French reader of my site sent me the explanation and accompanying original photograph shown underneath: "I can confirm that what you thought in your "probable hoaxes" category, the Vietnam photograph, is indeed a picture dating from the Vietnam war because I have the original photograph. The skull is real but on my picture it is a human skull. You may move this picture in the "admitted hoaxes" category." Anyway, how could anyone have thought that a simple troop man could hold such a strange skull? So, congratulation for your comment, it seemed well inspired."

Many thanks to this visitor. However, as the hoax is not admitted by its author and propagators, I have the picture in this "considered as hoaxes but not admitted hoaxes" page.



Jonathan Reed's alien:

A man claiming his name is "Jonathan Reed" told his story on the Art Bell radio show: he killed an alien in the woods and stored it in his freezer, and has been in big trouble with "black ops" guys since then. It did not prevent him to write a book and plan a movie and give conferences. After investigations took place, 99% of the ufology community understood the whole plot was an elaborate but rather obvious hoax, but Jonathan Reed maintains the stories against all the evidence.


A hoax:

There is a whole plot behind these pictures of the "alien skeleton" presented to "selected" persons by a MUFON Director and so on. Quote of one of the person who actually saw this "skeleton:" "The first thing I did was to touch the "bones". They were not "bone", or even varnished bone. They were a plastic substance of some sort." Another viewer said: "It has a glassy sort of sheen that is best seen on the brow of the skull and at the top of the thighbone. This sheen is very similar to that of the matrix."


Tabloid hoax:

The Weekly World News, a US tabloid, presented this picture of US President George W. Bush "shaking hand with alien."

It was not the only time that this tabloid and other tabloids published pictures of US Presidents meeting with aliens. During the 2000 US presidential campaign, George W. Bush Jr. who seems to have some sense of humor, showed the magazine's pages, as the headline said he was being endorsed by the aliens.



Tabloid hoax:

The Weekly World News, a US tabloid, printed this picture of US President Bill Clinton "making deals with the aliens." Didn't even make the shadows fit. Yawn.


Noble extraterrestrials:

"Princess Negonna" and "prince Neosam" (or "Neosom") claimed to have come from planet "Tythan" (or "Tyton" or "Thytian") to save the Earth from nuclear disaster.

They did not leave any noticeable trace in the ufological literature, which may be considered as barely suprising.

Much more information, and sources, here.

From fake "KGB files":

From a fake UFO crash in Russia and alien autopsy movie. A western movie team went in Russia and claimed to the locals that they were shooting a Science-Fiction movie, so they secured the help of Russian extras in authentic 60's military uniforms and managed to shoot the autopsy scene in an authentic surgery block of a Moscow hospital. The fake footage still appears in a popular VHS tape "The Secret UFO files of the KGB".

Devil fish:

This is an authentic photograph of the underbelly of a strangely shaped flat fish, called the "devil fish." Hoaxers, and people trying to mock "alien stories" have presented it on many occasion as an "horrible alien being." The goal was sometimes to "let ufologists make fools of themselves with this fake alien before revealing it is only a fish from our own planet.


Computer graphics:

Apparently, author and alleged ET witness Whitley Strieber has seen this photo of some origin unknown to me and studied it. Although Strieber was quite moved because the alleged being in the image resembled those he says he has encountered, he dismissed the image as being computer fabricated.

Not a photograph

Silly hoax:

In 1967, one R.E Harrison II claimed to have met this very human extraterrestrial being at the door of his landed spacecraft. It did not take long to discover that he actually photographed a character of a movie on a television screen.

Typical prank:

This is just one of many pranks in which some youngster dressed up to pass himself off as a visitor from another world.

Would-be alien

Contactee, 1954:

Cedric Allingham caught the attention of the international Press in 1954 when he claimed to have taken this photograph of the Martian who came in flying saucer he claimed to have met on February 18, 1954, Lossiemouth, Scotland.


Female alien from planet Mattel, 2009:

In 2009, hoaxed "aliens" are essentially on Youtube.

In this case, one "mrseniourmir" guy posted on Youtube what appears to be a Pakistani TV news report. It shows a crowd all excited about a 4 inches so-called "female alien". The story appeared to be quite gross: youngsters apparently claimed that the chased around the "little female alien", caught it, put it "in a bottle", poked at it with sticks, then burned the body, then put it on a diner plate and showed it around. Comments attached to the video apparently by this "mrseniourmir" guy claimed that autopsy was considered but won't happen because "a bomb blast" destroyed the so-called evidence that had been "buried in a hole". How suprising!

It was obviously only a burned Barbie doll, I immediately thought, and bingo, the Pakistani news reporter actually says "Barrrrbie" at the end of the original un-translated TV report.

As of May 29, 2009, the video of the TV report is at
