Skeptics, believers debate photo of an ‘alien’ creature . The photograph was taken by a policeman Chen Yung-huang near Jiaming Lake in Taitung County [ Located in eastern Taiwan ] on May 14 last year

SUPERIMPOSED? A photo imaging expert said the photo does not appear to have been edited, but thought the so-called ‘alien’ looked too human


A local UFO association has released a photograph taken at a high mountain lake which it says shows the image of an “alien being,” but skeptics say it may be a digitally edited or multiple-exposure photo.


Description :

- The photograph shows a large alien creature , with a transparent body and webbed hands , walking in the distance

Here is the Image :




TUFOS chairman Huang Chao-ming (黃朝明) said the policeman gave them the photo, which was taken on his iPhone 4 mobile phone, for examination.


What do you say ? Is it really an alien creature or just a digitally edited or multiple-exposure photo ?

Looks like it could be anything, including a tree.

Why is it that everything has to be an alien or UFO?

That photo could be literally of anything and doesnt fall into the category of convincing evidence of extraterrestrials on earth.

TUFOs [ The Taiwan UFOlogy Society ] has has spent a year having experts on mobile phone technology, computer imagery and camera photography to study this image . If this was a tree, they would have already identified it [ Through filed survey ].The policeman who took this photograph has said he did not notice anything unusual, and only discovered the strange figure in the picture after coming down the mountains. Hence , it can be a creature that cannot be seen through normal unaided eye .


There have been reports from other countries of cameras capturing images of beings and objects that are invisible to the human eye

It is a hoax made with an iPhone app which took advantage of the 21/12/2012 doomsday prediction.

Good catch...


That pretty much shows how easy it is to fake a picture with the right tools, which in this case is the Iphone....

Here is an explanation from an expert


Chien Jung-tai (簡榮泰), an expert on photo image processing, was shown the photograph on Saturday. Chien initially said that a shaking motion when the shot was being taken might have produced the double lines in what might be a leftover image.

However, it was interesting to see that the double lines in the leftover image appear only in a small section of the photo, he said.

Chien also compared the pixel elements of the double lines below the “alien being” and the image above it, and said they do not differ much, adding that it does not appear to be an edited photo.

However, he said that if it were an “alien being,” then it should have a body structure and composition different from that of a human being.

Judging from the photo, the creature appears to have a huge body, but if it is transparent, it would not have an outline and a shadow, he said.

“If it was an alien being from another planet, with its own special biological structure, then we would be unable to interpret its shape and appearance, based on what we see from creatures on Earth,” he said.

When asked if the image might be caused by a superimposition of a leftover frame image from the mobile phone’s flash memory, Chien said that was a question that can only be answered by experts in optical imaging technology for flash memory devices.

Based on his experience with digital cameras and mobile phones, he said the probability of having a multiple-exposure image superimposed at just the right place in an outdoor scenery picture was low

It appears to be a smoke plume from a distant fire.

Could be, but then most of the smoke was cloned out. There is a lot of pixellation in the blue sky for quite a distance around the alien. It's an extremely poor hoax IMO.

The "close up" has been pretty heavily doctored too. I took this one from the "original" photo and resized it. It looks nothig like the close up.

Agreed. The hoaxers could have comed with a better idea than a "giant humanoid made of tree".

I am not a photo expert so take this with a grain of salt. It looks like a crack in the lense to me.

While I doubt the photo is of any significance, the "fact" that it was "debunked" and found to be an "iPhone app" downloaded from "Google Play" has it's own issues. Google Play apps are for ANDROID phones, whereas iPhone owners use the App Store from Apple to download or purchase apps.

Ah, sorry, looks like I found the wrong link. Camera360 appears to have both iPhone and Android versions.
