It almost looks like the man is looking down to the right, and the arm actually looks like his own, not the woman. If you set this in a normal setting today it looks like the woman is stretching in front of the guy and is about to snap a picture or something

Who knows whats lurking out there in the dark, or in this case, broad daylight. Where did this picture originate from?

It was one of the dozen shilled on 4chan in the aftermath of the missing photo.
I initially dismissed this one out of hand, due to it not actually showing an actual alien in it..whatever that green thing is, it looks like it's been pasted in there...

Supposedly this image was cropped...but I don't recall there being a legitimate excuse for it ending up like that.

I had thought all the images (about 15) that were shilled in the days after the alledged picture vanished..had been discredited, due to the backgrounds being searchable and identifiable on the net...I did image search this one and nothing came up. However I could be way off and this could be a pre existing image.

As I've said, someone over at 4chan noticed the composite image had placed a completely different cactus from a different landscape to intersect with a tree. This corresponds with the other background. Due to this I speculated that a big clue to the real image, lies in the background of the composite being constructed to CRUDELY mimic the genuine article. This would be done to confuse anyone who may have seen the real picture.

The anon who spotted this correspondence in the two backgrounds, contends that the reason, whoever made the composite image, has done so, it to cover over the spot, where the couple are placed, in the real image. The anon speculates that again this is to throw people off, from realising the real image has a couple in it..evidently unaware that an actual alien..or whatever it is.. is lurking a couple of hundred feet behind them.

In a nut shell there seems no logical reason that the person who made the composite image took a completely different landscape and modelled it on one of the other backgrounds from on of the other fakes. Why not just make or pick a competely random background like the other fakes???. By doing this we both think the composite image has unwittingly identified the real image. Of corse this only partially helps us as the real image has cropped off the alien.

Also the cropped image has a partial green object along where it's been cropped..which so far I don't recall anyone saying the alien was green. I think this has been pasted in to help discredit the whole image. It's all just another theory though. But the shadow does help make it more credible

Dunno if I'm making much sense but best I can explain it

By the way there was one more image that we haven't really discussed in the thread so far and it was one of the more interesting ones..I didn't save it though.

If anyone has it, it was one of the black and white ones..not the one with a grey alien in it..but one that had an indistinguishable object in the foreground with what might have large looked like it might have been some type of plant more than anything else but the picture quality was really difficult to tell what it was.

I have a suspision who ever made most of the fakes, took elements of the actual real picture and spread them out across a few of the fakes.

Just a suspicion though

Ahh I see. At this point there is so many pictures that has been shilled at 4chan, I just saw there is an new version floating around at 4chan in the x section. It has the desert background, but a new type of alien in it, and of course parts of the picture is missing. At this point I bet there is plenty of people who has and is making fake ones, so be prepared for dozens of fake ones popping up.

This picture you posted is interesting, it has some elements in it that differentiates it from the other ones. But let's say those people up on the hill is in the original photo, I guess someone would have mentioned it by now, and what is the odds that an alien is lurking some hundred meters behind your back in a vast desert scene? The green thing in the left part is imo just layered in there to discredit. The birds, hm, I have never been in an desert, how common is it for a flock of birds to reside in trees in deserts? I am by no means an expert, just wondering.

The shadow looks real in my eyes. Maybe it's a person being taken a picture of, and that has been cropped out, or the alien, who knows. I would suspect the shadow to belong to a person belonging to a group of people, like the couple up on the hill.

And a side note: this year marks the 70th anniversary of the Roswell incident

I think this is a psyop. If this happened on ATS I would look at it differently, but it happened on the /pol/ board (politically incorrect) at 4chan. That board has nothing to do with aliens or paranormal's just about politics and society...well that's what it's supposed to be about anyway.

I've gone through every theory I can think of about this..and now I'm thinking it may well be a sensitivity or conditioning test. To see how well people react to actual images or real ET's. You would need the plausible deniability after showing such an image, by pretending it was a fake and the only way to do that, would be to make plausible replica scenes, that people could psychologically accept were the original.

For instance, let's say the stories about the original are true..and that the image was so disturbing it made people feel extremely unpleasant and sick. Clearly this would mean that the public simply are not ready for aliens to be a reality. If it left a psychological impact as bad as that it would only be responsible to produce a bunch of replica, but clearly fake images and to saturate the board with order for those who had been upset, as fakes images discredit and undermine the real image. This would help to allow victims of the image, to be convinced that it was really just a fake from a hoax that produced a dozen more fakes.

Let's say they put a real image out for a few minutes to see what reaction they got from the posts. If it was too reactionary or disgusted or horrified..then they make a note of it and carry on posting fake images, which have elements of the desensitise people looking for the real image and to passify those who actually saw the real one.

I think the day the original image appeared..someone, disabled the 4chan image upload system and wiped off images..I think this was done to make sure the alien picture stood out and that a greater number of people would see it and click to enlarge it. I don't know what technology exists for preventing downloading or even taking a screen cap..but I can only guess that the original image has security embedded into it somehow. preventing its capture and redistribution.

It would make sense to pull this on /pol/ due to the nature of the board and how routinely posters end up seeing disturbing images that other idiots put up in order to get a shock reaction. On top of that /pol/ is made up of posters from all over the world, many who have English as a second or third language. So the test would be reaching a diverse global segement of the population. You would need to conduct desensitivity and conditioning psyops like this in order to test the water of public reaction.

And yes another theory..

Also..if it was to test public would explain why it was carried out on a limited number of people. If too many people get exposed at the same time and the reaction is would be impossible to cover it up as a hoax.

It would possibly explain the banning of posters for even talking about it. After all it would be a classified test with peramiters and protocols we can only guess at. However one of the protocols appears that it was supposed to be limited to the /pol/ board. The follow up stuff spread to /x/ but a lot of that is simply hoaxing each other for fun.

The length of the bans and the drip feeding of the most notable cgi image..looked like there was a time limit for a test..I got the distinct feeling sometching was going on over a 3 day period at 4chan. Things certainly did seem unusual with the mods behaviour, with the bans and deletion of alien threads. Yet that practically stopped after 3 days although it's still enforced on the /pol/ board but that's down to it being off topic for that board, even though it was the most affected by the incident.

It's worth considering that if such extremes have been gone to in order to remove and hide a real photo of an alien that "they" could have cropped the background from the actual photo and placed it online so that it would come up in image searches thereby convincing the investigators that it is generic and part of a hoax. If this was important enough to take down a web site, ban users, magically erase or corrupt files on personal hard drives, then there are surely many other tactics in play. By "installing" the background sans alien and having it appear in image searches then no image with that background would be taken seriously.

Also if it is a sensitivity test..there may be more to it. They could be releasing more images of actual Aliens mixed in with the fakes from movies order to see if any of the real images gets an extreme reaction.

I always did think the amount of alien movies over the years was predictive programming..especially ET. If you notice how similar the recent CGI model was in comparison, with the long neck and skin colour, very similar to might be a clue to what some actual aliens do look like.

Of corse the more sensible answer would be the person who designed that CGI model just ripped off ET...

Well it can make sense to isolate a social test, to see what a small enough group of peoples reaction would be like. If we compare it to how scientific tests are being conducted, there should have been a big enough target audience to make any kind of sense of it, but probably this was far from any scientific as it can be. If an alien picture can gross out people, most especially at a site as 4chan (by its reputation), well then the picture must have been gross some how.

Out of all things, movies with aliens in it seems to grab my attention the most. All these Hollywood blockbusters involving aliens trying to overtake earth has been entertaining, if it is deliberate to drip feed humans the notion of aliens I have no idea of, but if you look back at it people seems to be wildly entertained by the idea of aliens arriving at earth. It's like the last mystery out there, do they exist or not?

Bet the people operating 4chan are having a big laugh.

If people thought an agency of the government had any part in controlling the website or mods then why would people still be there? The talk of government intrusion is just that, talk?

If an agency could just take control of a site and those operating it cover it up, then those people become part of the problem.

Murphy's Law factor

If all of the system issues are no purposely made then those at 4chan trying to create a prank screwed up their system.

I've been following this topic from the start, and joined here just to comment on this thread. Excuse this doozy of a post but I've yet to comment on the matter and I have a lot to say.

I think this is a cropped version of the real photo.

I've been following this subject obsessively since the fallout on 4chan the day after the picture was posted. Like many here, I dismissed this photo early on just because the creature on the left side looks so fake.

But, most interestingly, this was the only photo since early on that didn't actually show a creature in it outright. Why is this important? While other people were slinging about crappy photoshops or stills from movies, this was the only picture that's been around since the beginning and that doesn't even try to depict the being in question! Also of note, when this background was first posted, some of the people who were claiming to have seen the original picture said that this was the correct background.

Then, when you look at the thumbnail which became widely available right before the popular CGI rendered alien appeared, take note that this is the only picture in question that actually shows a cactus adjacent to the tree (the tree people had been claiming was there from the start). Whereas, when you look at the background of the CGI render alien, the picture was revealed, the cactus is there but the tree begins to "disappear" from the full render, implying the thumbnail and the render have differing backgrounds. So I believe that this is the only picture in question that actually has both the proper tree in its proper placement. I agree that other pictures, like the CGI render, are there to confuse, muddle, and distract viewers from the original picture.

So, even before my next point, this picture had some major things going for it: it's been around since the start, it actually has the correct background, and some people who claimed to have seen the original have said that this is the correct background. In my mind it was a good candidate.

The night before last something major happened which shot this picture straight to the top of my list. On 4chan, someone posted highly distorted and pixelated versions of this picture with some more of the left side cropped out, and without the obviously fake alien head on the left side of the picture. It was right about the time that the 4chan Discord got shut down, allegedly either by the Feds or Discord's admins, right as they claimed they were making a major breakthrough (for those who don't know, apparently people from 4chan were running a very active chatroom in Discord dedicated to finding the picture).

There were two highly distorted/pixelated versions of this picture with the fake alien head removed. One was in greyscale, almost totally black and white, and one was partially colored with purple/blue/black/grey. It was almost impossible to make anything out in these distorted pictures, but there appeared to possibly be a smallish figure in the bottom left of the frame. If you recall the earliest sketches of the picture, the alien was supposedly rather small against a large background, to the bottom left. And, as others here have noted, there is a very apparent shadow in the version of the photo we have that appears humanoid but not human at all. At the time these two distorted pictures were posted, no one in the 4chan thread seemed to take any note of it, so while I thought it was potentially interesting, I moved on. Now that attention has returned to this image, I went to go find those distorted/altered pictures with the CGI head removed, and they've been scrubbed from the thread and the archives at!

So, to reiterate:

  1. 4chan's Discord chat claims to be making an important breakthrough and gets shut down by site admins or Feds;
  2. People come to threads on /x/ saying they're going to dump info from the Discord chat that was shut down;
  3. Among numerous other items, at least two highly distorted/pixelated versions of this photo appear, with the fake alien head on the left side removed, revealing the original background behind. Though it's almost impossible to tell, there may be a figure in the frame that is casting the shadow;
  4. No one in the threads discusses the altered pictures. As of today, the pixelated/altered versions of the pictures have been scrubbed from 4chan and the 4chan archive site,

As of right now, I am fully convinced that this is a portion of the original photo. I wish I had the altered versions to show you guys but they're gone. And, since I browse from my iPad, I don't have a browser history or other place to recover the altered photos from. But if they were posted on 4chan, others out there still have them.

But, if what I'm saying is true, take heart! If indeed this is part of the original photo, and someone from Discord was sharing portions with the CGI head removed, that means the original photo is still out there, and people are trying to find ways to publish it or somehow disseminate it to the public.

That's a confirmed fake. This picture has been altered many times by some people on 4chan to make it look like it is the real deal, but the alien is from the X-Files tv show. They've tried to distort the picture more and more with changing the color etc, but people at 4chan ain't that stupid. Background has been debunked, too.

To my knowledge the image has not been found I read somewhere on 4chan that a bunch of guys are heading down there with guns to those coordinates but ya know what those 4chan fellas are like they chat so much #e

PS to those unaware what that photo is i found it on 4chan either last night or the day before which is allegedly from the corrupted image data of the original

So they would want to kill this thing just for the sake of it, if it even exists in the first place?

How moronic are some people, cruel beyond words if that actually happened.
