On November 21, 2018, an anonymous user on 4chan had posted an image to the paranormal board /x/ of what was claimed to be an alien. The image was accompanied with the following text:

"This was a picture that was taken from inside a car that I was working on. Full story was that I was working on it about at 11pm and I heard a bang on the front of the car. I thought it was a raccoon so I took a picture with flash to scare it off, But when I took a picture I got this. Having seeing this I turned on my flashlight only to see that it had disappeared. I had matched up the picture next to the car and the wall behind it and measured how tall it would be, and it was about 8 feet. Can anybody tell me if this was a prank on me or if this was real. Honestly I think it’s real."

After extensive digging by fellow users of the board, it was determined to be a hoax.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The alien resembled a typical grey alien but with slight differences. Instead of purely black eyes, it had discernable pupils and an iris. It was also supposedly tall than how grey aliens are usually described, which is being short.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The original post had garnered over 400 comments in response by 158 unique posters. The image was reposted onto the website Reddit, particularly the subreddit titled r/Alien, where it received even more attention and speculation.
