Do you believe in ghosts? What about UFOs and aliens? Think nobody does? No? Well, think again. According to Atlantic Magazine, some 42 percent of Americans believe in ghosts and 36 percent believe in the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). Pictures of both so-called ghosts and UFOs/aliens really began back in the 19th century. And now we even have videos of purported sightings. Is any of it real? Are the people who support the idea that ghosts and aliens exist all a bunch of crazies who need to get a life? Or are the authorities covering up the truth? Often, each side will look at the same picture or video and come up with predictable, entrenched positions.
Take the "Battle of Los Angeles" in 1942. The story goes something like this: In the wake of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Americans were decidedly anxious. And when "something" flew over LA in 1942, search lights were focused on a mysterious slow moving object. Spotlights were beamed into the sky and the heavy guns were brought out. Many assumed the Japanese had arrived. Ufologists claimed to see UFOs. It got even more confusing as, after the fact, officialdom was vague about what had happened, saying little, other than "false alarm". Maybe as some speculate, it was a weather balloon off course. Or, maybe it was an alien ship. And no one can prove either side of the argument.
So, we present a catalog of creepy, mysterious photos and videos of assorted monsters, ghosts, and UFOs, both old and new, and we will leave you to decide.
7 The Ghost of Alcatraz
6 Doris Bither
5 Freddy Jackson
4 The Astronaut and the UFO
3 Nessie the Lochness Monster
2 The White Lady of Worstead
1 The Ghost of Lord Combermere
This is another classic. Taken in 1891, it shows the faint image of a man sitting in a chair on the left. Parts of his body are clearly visible. Some think it is the ghost of Lord Combermere, who had a distinguished military career in the early 1800s. Combermere had died a few days before and, reportedly, when the picture was taken by a Sybell Corbet, his funeral was taking place. Taken long before the wonders of Photoshop, it makes you wonder how on earth an image like this one could have been faked.
