Hello all.

Sorry if this image has been posted before, but this is of great interest to myself and contains much mystery behind the photo. From what i've read about this photo, it has been proven to be "real". Apparantly this image was taken long before computer's could do a "photoshop" job upon them and when taking the photo the "spaceman" was not behind the small girl.

According to accounts, this photo was taken in Cumbria England in the 1960's.

Anyone have any further idea's or information on this event?

Visually dis proportionate, the body in said picture is floating then. Most likely a doll or toy. if you have the originals I could tell better against the photoshop as old pictures can be photoshopped now.

Im interested though.

Kinda looks like Cobra Commander from G.I. Joe, cept white

Looks like something the cdc would wear when they come upon a hotspot or investigation for diseases for a quarantine.

Unfortunantly not my picture. First came across them on the television, to which they were interviewing the girls father about the picture. He seemed a trustworthy source but you can never tell. After a bit of searching on Google, i found the picture, (as shown above) but without explanation to what it was.

Apparantly the picture had tests done upon it, to discover if it was a fake and they came to the conclusion that it is indeed real. However this is "rumour".

I would keep that to rumor, its false credibility. The parents arnt always trustworthy either.. heck if I made 150k in publicity I would act like its true, would you?

This is the Cumbrian Spaceman,a bit of back story tothis case here.

I read the UK`s UFO magazine article on this case
a few years ago,and though they believed the photo to be
of a real figure behind the girl,it was very similar
looking to little plastic toys that were given away free
with boxes of cereal at the time!
It has never been uncovered as a hoax though,but then
what do i know?

Anyone woud, provided they knew of a way they could put that money to good use.

As for the picture, i'm inclined to believe it's a giant inflatable space-man.

I can see plenty to put it in
Gas is expensive and i'd like to buy a new house.. oh and a new car, hmm wonderful things that
And all I had to do was say it was real. Yes, I to fall victim to the easy money over credibility to the masses at times, though money is tight.

I wouldnt do it in reality, unless I WAS payed a large sum, but im obviously not so I dont.

"Do you believe in giant monsters Tod?"

"Well no joe, why would I?"

"Heres 150k saying you do"

"Who said I didnt?"

Catch the drift?

Take a look at the six million dollar man doll and the one next to it with the helmet.

Not the same but a close match, valid point, though not many of us think it more then a hoax im sure

Very interesting case, and still yet to be 100% resolved...I think. Discussed a lot here at ATS over the years...

Just do an ATS search on CUMBRIAN and you will find plenty more.

Yep to me it looks nothing more than a doll fastened to a stick, stuck in the ground behind her.

posted on May, 27 2008 @ 12:17 PM
Honestly I think this is a toy in the background.
I also thing that what we are seeing is the back of the doll, both elbows seem to be in the wrong direction. what we see as the chest is really the back.
LOL I wonder if its a HE-MAN toy?! I miss HE-MAN!

Some very interesting theories.

One theory of which I always hear is that the "spaceman" is the British TV programme Top Gear's - The Stig.

Anyway i found a whole article on the events:

The Cumbrian Spaceman

As a kid in the '80s, I had a book of weird UFO photos back then and this one was included, so it's definitely not Photoshopped.

Has always intrigued me too, this one.

I am not sure why anyone today would consider that photo anything BUT a hoax.
the "spaceman" is wearing typical manmade gear for quarantine or old scifi movie type space travel.

does anyone today think a true Alien looks like this?

Im curious.

Because its obvious the father lied. An invisible alien that looks like a human in a scifi movie from the time period?

Not really a question to its validity in my mind.

If you read the article I posted above, this was not the only time this figure was seen.

"That same year, in Woomera, Australia, England began launching its new "Blue Streak Rockets." During one of the launches, a strange event occurred. One of the technicians, while following launch preparations on a monitor, noticed two tall men in white spacesuits close to the launch tower. The countdown was immediately stopped and security searched the entire area but the two mystery figures were never found.

The Australian press, however, had recently published Jim Templeton's photo of "The Cumbrian Spaceman," the Australian technician had seen it, recognized a dramatic similarity and commented that "he looks like the boys I saw on the monitor."

Mr. Templeton also received a visit from what I believe to be Majestic 12.

reply to post by chrisbowman1990

So you think because a space program guy says he saw 2 guys that look just like that... that its an alien?

its typical government clothing for that time period.

Ok.. you know.. think whatever you want.

But that is just government dis info at work.

I never stated that whatever it is, is an alien. The spacemen were spotted twice as described, one of which a photo was taken (see first post) the other a independent source not a government.

It might be a doll.
When I first looked at it I thought "beekeeper or someone in fencing gear."
