The Solway Firth Spaceman loves the topic of Ancient Aliens and Ancient Alien Theory. However, sometimes evidence for extra terrestrials doesn't come from ancient history, but from recent history. The case of the Solway Firth Spaceman is certainly one of those cases.

The Solway Firth Spaceman, also known as the "Cumberland Spaceman," uniquely stands in the world of paranormal evidence as one of the strangest reports and is still an unsolved mystery. Jim Templeton was off near Burgh Sands, near Solway Firth in England. The image was taken in 1964. The image clearly shows a humanoid in some sort of spacesuit standing in the background of a photograph taken of Templeton's daughter.

One of the issues is spacesuits were in their infancy during this period. This spacesuit in the image above displays the spacesuit used in 1964. While it is difficult to tell, the spacesuit on the Solway Firth Image appears to be slightly more advanced.

Templeton claimed that he saw no such "space man" around the area when the image was taken, it only showed up in the aftermath of developing the photographs. Some have claimed the photograph to be a hoax, taken with either a doll of an astronaut or a friend in a space suit. However, none of these claims have gathered any evidence or gained any speed. Analyst at Kodak researched the photo and determined that there was no evidence of any tampering or special effects.

The mystery deepens. Templeton claims to be visited later by two unidentified government agents whom refused to show him identification. The men then asked Templeton many questions about the weather conditions and local bird life. The agents then drove Templeton to the site of the photographs and suggested strongly that he deny any account of this photograph being real. Shortly thereafter leaving Templeton stranded at the site several miles from home.

Halfway across the world in Australia a weapons test was called off because of the sighting of two very large men on the firing range. These "large men" appeared and disappeared in the middle of the firing range for no known reason. When the weapons researchers saw the photos of the Solway Spaceman, they explained that the two figures were "exactly the same type of man: same dress, same figure, same size."
