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.
When Jim Templeton took a charming picture of his 5 year old daughter in the English countryside in May 1964, there was nothing strange. But when he was handed the developed photograph, a strange character in white suit seems to stand or float behind the small girl's shoulder, too high and strangely oblique. Kodak excluded any tampering or error with the picture, the press published the story, "Men In Black" visited Templeton, and the case has links up to a Blue Streak missile test range at the other end of the world, in Australia.
More than four decades later, an explanation was found.
First, an image analyst showed that "space man" has everything of a person of normal size and poportions who turned his back to the photographer.
Then, others focused on another photo taken that day, showing the little girl and her mother Annie, who was wearing a sleeveless dress of a very light blue color. They found that the "space man" just Annie walking away from her daughter, with some kind of vap and tied hair giving the impression of an astronaut visor.
Here is a detailed account of the exceptionally strange events and a larger version of the photograph.
In this case of October 2002, a tiny 8 cm dying creature was found in Concepcion, Chile, and it looked so weird that the family that found it brought it to a veterinarian who was clueless. When the press started to mention that it might be an extraterrestrial being, Chilean ufologists asked for advice, and a few days later a biologist found out what the creature was. At no time the family tried to hoax anything, and the ufology community, except a handful, was of course satisfied by the explanation. Much more information and more pictures here.
A very strange skull raises attention of researcher Lloyd Pye. The skull does not look very human. In 2001 Lloyd Pye sets up a foundation to raise funds for DNA analysis. Verdict in 2003: the skull is human.
Here the details of the discovery.
Michael Heseman says that according to a report published by the Georgian UFO Association GUFORA (from the Caucasian Republic of Georgia) an alien body was retrieved by the Russian State Security Service in 1996. An old woman from the village of Kashtim in the Ural mountains, so the report claims, found a dying little creature on the road.
Around 2004, several web sites in Russia have spread the latest news about the nature of the creature: it is said that its DNA was checked and found to be that of a normal human female. The abnormality of the poor being raised further discussion as to whether she was the victim of radiation driven mutation or normal albeit unfortunate natural mutations.
In any event, unless one wants to support that extraterrestrial may share the same DNA than human, the being is human, nor extraterrestrial.
Here is the picture in a larger format, and the rest of the story.
On October 25, 2009 the British tabloid Daily Express publishes on their website a video coming from a survey camera set up next to a Bristol pub. The tabloid proposes that the video shows a "ghoul" or a ghost. At least one ufology website mentions it as being a "luminous alien".
The night video shows a luminous spot moving generally seen when a car drives by with its headlights on: obviously just reflections.
