- Many people on the Internet believe this picture was photoshopped. However, it was taken long before Photoshop was created. In 1965 the photographer, Robert Le Serreс, noticed a suspicious object near Hook Island in Australia. He immediately took a photo of the monster, which is still the subject of zoologists’ discussions.
- This shot was taken by a Norwegian photographer with a 30-second exposure. It isn’t the only evidence of the existence of strange luminous objects flying over the Hessdalen valley in central Norway. People living in the Valley first noticed and reported these strange lights in 1981. Spectral analysis shows that this object consists of silicon, iron, and scandium.
- This unidentified object was first captured by an artificial satellite in 1960. NASA specialists immediately named it "Black Knight." Since then, the mysterious object keeps appearing and disappearing from the Earth’s orbit. There is a whole satellite conspiracy theory about it.
- On November 22, 1963, the American President John Kennedy was shot dead in Dallas. There are still many unanswered questions connected with this assassination. One of them has to do with a mysterious woman holding a camera in one hand. She was caught on camera by some photographers. The woman was wearing a headscarf in an old Russian ladies manner, so she was nicknamed Babushka Lady.
- This shot was taken by photographer Richard Drew on the day of the terrorist attack on September 11. The photo of the falling man went viral and made it to many news sources worldwide in a matter of hours.
- This photo was taken in Beijing during the riots of 1989. In Tiananmen Square, an unknown young man held up the column of tanks for half an hour, blocking the way with his body. It's still a mystery who that man was or what happened to him after.
- In 2010, a DVD with bonus frames from the filming of Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 movie The Circus was released. One of the frames shows a woman holding something very similar to a modern cell phone.
- In 1964, Jim Templeton took a photo of his 5-year-old daughter in the countryside. Jim and his wife said they noticed something unusual in the air that day, something like an electric charge. A few days later when the film was developed, it was clear there was something extraordinary about the shot...
- There is one strange photograph in the photo album of Sir Goddard’s squadron who fought in the First World War. If you look closely at the back row of soldiers, you will see an extra face behind the fourth sailor on the left.
- Astronauts were actively taking pictures using Hasselblad cameras during the mission. Some of them were just good material for space exploration science, but one turned out to be unique. It might look like an average overexposed photo, and it was first listed as such in the archives.
