5. The Falling Body

The story:

“As the Cooper’s move into their new home in Texas, they take a photograph of the family sitting together, but as the photo is taken, a body falls from the ceiling.

Possible explanation:

Photos like these were common in the 1950’s since people re-used film quite a bit back then due to it being so expensive. It’s most likely a photo overlay.

The story:

“A group of four kids posing for a picture, however, there appears to be a mysterious thumb next to the kid in black on the right, that does not seem to align with anyone’s body.

Plausible explanation:

A 5th boy ducking under everyone not in sight of the picture…. or some trick photography and Photoshop.

7. The Battle of Los Angeles, 1942: The Mystery Air Raid

The story:

“A photo published in the Los Angeles Times on February 26, 1942 has been cited by modern day conspiracy theorists and Ufologists as evidence of an extra-terrestrial visitation. They assert that the photo clearly shows searchlights focused on an alien spaceship; however, the photo was heavily modified by photo retouching prior to publication, a routine practice in graphic arts of the time intended to improve contrast in black and white photos.

“Los Angeles Times writer Larry Harnish noted that the retouched photo along with faked newspaper headlines were presented as true historical material in trailers for the film Battle: Los Angeles. Harnish commented, “if the publicity campaign wanted to establish UFO research as nothing but lies and fakery, it couldn’t have done a better job.”

Possible explanation:

You pretty much just read it… the photo was heavily retouched and it was actually a weather balloon.

The story:

“Unusual lights have been reported here since 1940s or earlier. Especially high activity of Hessdalen Lights took place from December 1981 until the summer of 1984 when lights were observed 15–20 times per week. The frequency of the lights caused a gathering of numerous tourists staying there overnight to see the phenomenon.

“Since then, the activity has decreased and now the lights are observed some 10–20 times per year. The Hessdalen light most often is a bright, white or yellow light of unknown origin standing or floating above the ground level. Sometimes the light can be seen for more than one hour. There are several other types of unexplained lights observed in the Hessdalen valley.

Possible explanation:

Scientists have had many theories on this, but the lights still remained unexplained to this day. Some experts think some sort of plasma causes the light when a gas ionises to form a cloud of ions and electrons.
