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

This photo has been around since 1964 like many when I first saw it I was a little spooked by it and for 50 years it has perplexed millions of people however tonight it finally clicked in my mind what I was looking at!.
The “spaceman ” in my opinion is a man on a horse!
The photographer claimed he never saw anything in the picture at the time that could be the truth maybe he thought the horse rider was out of shot by the time he took the photo and later completely forgot about the rider passing its plausible in my opinion what do you think?
