A fireman unwittingly snapped an eery figure dressed in full NASA space gear.
In a white suit, dark visor and helmet, Tim Templeton reckoned he had captured an image of an astronaut standing behind his five-year-old daughter Elizabeth.
However he maintained he had not seen the figure when taking the picture and it had only shown up when the picture was developed.
The photo was taken at Burgh Marsh near Burgh by Sands, overlooking the Solway Firth in Cumbria.
Things got even weirder when the family said they had been visited by two government agents who identified themselves as number nine and number 11 and asked to be shown the scene.
Modern sceptics say the picture is Mr Templeton’s wife, Annie. They say the camera flash overexposed her making her appear as a white figure. Official government investigations were unable to prove or disprove the picture.
