The only known photograph
The Cumberland Spaceman sighting is a extraterrestrial sighting that took place on May 23, 1964. A man named Jim Templeton took his wife and 5-year-old daughter Elizabeth to Burgh Marsh in England for a nice day out. After developing some of the photographs he had taken over the course of the day, one of them appeared to show a strange astronaut-like figure in the back.
The entity resembled a tall humanoid figure clad in a spacesuit jutting out at an odd angle from behind his daughter’s head. Templeton was confounded as neither he nor his wife had seen anything (or anyone) unusual on their walk, but what was most perplexing was the fact that the “spaceman” only showed up in the middle of the three consecutive photos he had shot and was “missing” from the first and last.

- Jim noted that day that all of the animals on that particular day were away on the other end of the marsh, all huddled together, as though they’d been frightened.
- The executives at Kodak were so intrigued by this dilemma that they offered a reward of free film for a year to any person that could solve the mystery as to how this “spaceman” got into the picture. The reward remains unclaimed. (americanmonsters.com)
