Sometimes people catch something whilst testing a new camera or stargazing, that really should not be there. What happens when there’s an extra person in a family photo? These are the kind of accidents that bring legends to life and below are 9 of the most incredible unexplainable photos we could find.
The Rossendale Fairies

Fairies have long since been dismissed to children’s books and Disney movies. However, John Hyatt a lecturer at Manchester University claims to have proven otherwise and claims these minute creatures are living in the Rossendale Valley.
He caught the images during an outing in the valley. Since then he has posted images of similar shots of flies and gnats and the difference is clear. The fairies clearly have distinct arms, legs, a head, a body and tiny wings. John tells of the moment he captured the image and claims the fairies were ” dancing in the sunlight “. No-one is yet to disprove these beautiful creatures and let’s hope no-one ever does.
The Black Knight Satellite

The Black Knight Satellite was a name given to this mysterious object by Nasa astronauts when they spotted it during a space shuttle mission in 1998. This mysterious object dates much further back than that, however, in 1899 Nikola Tesla himself intercepted strange radio signals from the satellite and signals have continued to come through since then.
The object itself is strange enough, stranger still, is that radio signals that were most recently decoded. The series of signals originated from the Epsilon Bootes Star System, 13,000 years ago… That puts to question the age of this unidentified object that continues to orbit our earth today.

The story goes that during the 1950’s the Cooper family moved into a beautiful new home in Texas for an unusually good price. One there first family meal in the house they all settled for a family photo, with the father taking the shot himself. All living the American dream, or so they thought.
When the photo was developed the family saw, to their horror, a body hanging from the ceiling, just behind them. Nobody saw the figure at the time, but they continued to see a black figure around the home for many years following. Where did it come from? The deceased former tenant or someone come just to scare.

A Summers day of 1964 found a young girl and her father in the park with the mother and a picnic. The Carlise fireman snapped a photo that caught the attention of the worldwide press. The photograph captured his smiling daughter and a looming figure in the background, wearing a white suit, a dark visor and a helmet. He thought he captured a spaceman.
Only his wife, daughter and two pensioners sat in a car were present. It wasn’t until the shot was developed did anyone notice there was a white figure in the background. The picture became so famous that Kodiak offered a substantial reward to anyone who could disprove this image. Some said it was a ghost, others claimed Jim or his daughter were psychic, but not could disclaim the Soloway firth astronaut. In later years there was speculation, as when a darkened version emerged, the astronaut does look like the back of a woman with her hand on her hip. We will leave that there.

During the 1960’s Le Serrec, his family and their family friend, De Jong found themselves wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef. So making the best of a bad situation they decided to buy a motorboat and spend three months exploring the nearby Hook Island. They were crossing the bay on December 12th, 1964 when Le Serrec’s wife spotted something moving on the lake floor.
It looked to be a gigantic tadpole-like creature, over 30ft long. They carried on taking photos and in each, the monster appeared to be getting closer. In a moment of madness de Jong jumped into the water and began filming. The Hook Island Monster proved to be over 70ft long… The creature turned towards De Jong, opened its mouth and swam for foward. De Jong only just escaped but the legend was never forgotten.

The continued appearance of strange balls of light hovering over a valley in central Norway has been puzzling scientists for generations. The Hessendale phenomenon, are a series of flashing orbs of light that can sometimes match the size of a family car. This, of course, has attracted the attention of Ufologists.

Scientists do think they can explain this phenomenon can be explained by the forming of natural batteries buried deep underground.

This incredible photo was taken in 1919 and wasn’t published until 1975 by Sir Victor Goddard. The photograph was of Goddard’s squadron who served during WW1. An extra person turned up for the photograph, and he wasn’t shy.
It is thought that the ghostly face belongs to Freddy Jackson, an air mechanic who was accidentally killed by a loose airplane propeller. The funeral had taken place on the same day this photograph was taken. Members of the squadron instantly recognised their passed friend. It is thought that Jackson didn’t even know he was dead and simply showed up for his group photo.

The Time Travelling Hipster

When you first look at this old photo, there is nothing out of the ordinary. This image was one of many captured during the reopening of South Fork bridge in Gold Bridge, British Columbia. Normality in the 1940’s defined, right? Look again. That guy’s got some bad ass shades.
One fo the crowd seems a tad out of place. Sporting some modern hipster style sunglasses, modern clothing, a t-shirt with a huge emblem on the front and to top it all off, a portable camera… It was later found that the t-shirt could have been a hockey sweater devoted to the Montreal Maroons and sunglasses were around they were just rare. Time traveller or the father of all hipsters, you decide.
