What would Santa be if not a UFO?
On Christmas Eve 1981, twelve-year-old Robert “Bud” Mack, went downstairs after his parents had gone to bed. He hoped to not only see Santa. But capture evidence for himself. He was using a camera with a zoom lens. He claims that around three in the morning, he saw some blurry movement around the fireplace. He zoomed in on it. And snapped the picture above. It may just be smoke. Or a trick of the light. But there’s the unmistakable suggestion of Santa’s face surrounded by a wreath of smoke.
Seems legit to me but then I'm a softie for stuff like this.
On Christmas Eve 1973, Whitley Meier wanted to load his camera with a new 36 exposure roll. So he would be sure to capture all the his children’s reaction the following morning. But his camera already had a roll of film in it, and it had a few pictures left. So he went outside to finish off the roll. He was snapping pictures randomly, when he saw something shoot across the sky, and snapped this picture.
“I think you can clearly see the reindeer,” he told reporters at the time. “And if you look closely, you can see the sleigh and just make out Santa.
We’re not sure about all that. But it’s definitely something unusual.

Sometimes cops tamper with evidence. In 1947 that was quite a task, I gotta hand it to the guy, he has a funny sense of humor.
