This photo was taken exactly 50 years ago today.
BBC did a piece on it with Dr. David Clarke chipping in with his thoughts on it.
Dr Clarke, who met Mr Templeton in 2002 - "I came away absolutely convinced he was telling the truth and couldn't explain it himself, although I was
less convinced about his 'Men in Black' story. Whoever it was who visited him, I don't think they were from the government."
However, the spaceman, Dr Clarke says, is almost certainly not anything of the sort. "One of the other stills [taken that day] shows Jim's wife who,
according to him, was standing behind him when he took the photo of Elizabeth," he said. "I think for some reason his wife walked into the shot and
he didn't see her because with that particular make of camera you could only see 70% of what was in the shot through the viewfinder." Annie, he
argues, was standing with her back to the camera and the photograph was over-exposed - causing her blue dress to look white.
Whatever the truth, for Dr Clarke it is a reminder of a more "innocent time" and he is in no doubt about its importance. "People now are much more
cynical about these kind of pictures," he said. "Back in the 50s and 60s you got a few grainy stills showing extraordinary things. People were much
more surprised and willing to suspend disbelief.
"For me, it's one of the most impressive anomalous images in supernatural investigations and people will still be talking about it in another 50
years." More on This Story
