12 Of The World’s Most Mysterious Photos That Cannot Be Explained… Or Can They?

9. The Time Traveler


The story:

“People believe that this photograph, taken in 1941 at the re-opening of the South Forks Bridge in Gold Bridge, Canada, is depicting a man in seemingly modern dress and style, with a camera that is advanced well beyond its time. The circle on the left illustrates a man with a camera typical to the time-period.

Possible explanation:

While he does look out of place, everything he was wearing during that time period is correct… even the camera. Take a look at these three examples:

Glasses with protective side shields


Kodak did have portable cameras in the 1940’s


He’s wearing a Montreal Maroons T-shirt… a hockey team that played in the NHL from 1924-1938

11. The Madonna with Saint Giovannino and a UFO

The story:

“This painting is called “The Madonna with Saint Giovannino”. It was painted in the 15th century by Domenico Ghirlandaio (1449-1494) and hangs as part of the Loeser collection in the Palazzo Vecchio. Above Mary’s right shoulder is a disk shaped object. Below is a blow up of this section and a man and his dog can clearly be seen looking up at the object.

Possible explanation:

More than likely it’s just symbols added by the painters…. However, some skeptics believe it’s a cloud with sun rays beaming behind it.

12. The Falcon Lake Incident


The story:

“The Falcon Lake Incident is a reported unidentified flying object (UFO) encounter near Falcon Lake, Manitoba, Canada claimed to have occurred on May 20, 1967 by Stefan Michalak. He had had taken a short vacation in Whiteshell Provincial Park to prospect veins of quartz near Falcon Lake when he spotted two cigar-shaped objects descending, one of which landed near him.

“Michelak says he saw a door open and heard voices from inside the object, after which he tried to make contact in English and other languages but got no response. He claims to have burned his hand while attempting to examine “colorful glass” found around the object and seen a grid-like exhaust vent that expelled gas that burned his clothing.

Possible explanation:

Other than a waffle iron… this one is still up in the air unfortunately.
