In 1964, fireman, photographer and local historian Jim Templeton took a photo of his young daughter that has had the world wondering ever since. The photo is known as the Solway Firth Spaceman photo.

The image of the little girl smiling sweetly is the ultimate photo bomb. Behind her is the figure of something. It looks like a man in a white space suit. Whatever it is, it's eerie and has made people speculate for 50+ years.

One explanation for the photo is that Templeton's wife was standing in the background. She was seen in other pictures that day and she appeared white due to overexposure. Others still believe it could possibly be a 'spaceman.' There's no doubt that the questions will continue for years to come.
