20. The Solway Firth Spaceman

A summer’s day in Cumbria, England in 1964. Jim Templeton and his wife Annie were taking their daughter Elizabeth on a trip to the Solway Firth. He took a picture of Elizabeth, but something strange appeared in the developed photograph – a mysterious figure, seemingly helmeted and white-suited. Photography firm Kodak offered a prize to any expert who could prove the image was a hoax, but no one could debunk the so-called Solway Firth Spaceman. However, some say it could be an overexposed and bleached-out Annie inadvertently walking into the shot.
