1. The Cadborosaurus sea monster
This is a photo of the so called Cadborosaurus monster from 1907. It was allegedly reeled in by a group of fishermen off the coast of Cadboro Bay in British Columbia, Canada.
For years the existence of the Cadborosaurus, affectionately nicknamed Caddy, has been disputed, while theories exist that the so-called monster was actually a zeuglodon, sea lion, oarfish, basking shark or a pipefish.
2. The ghost of Freddy Jackson
This standard portrait of World War One soldiers includes a man named Freddy Jackson who’s standing fourth from left in the back row.
Freddy was an RAF squadron pilot, but he wasn’t supposed to be in this photo as he perished before the photo was taken!
3. The 9/11 survivor
In this eerie photo, you can see a World Trade Center employee standing amid the wreckage and waving for help. What’s even eerier than her survival is that the fact this woman still remains unaccounted and hasn’t been identified.
4. Lost in space
The Black Knight satellite conspiracy theory claims that there is a spacecraft in near-polar orbit of the Earth of extraterrestrial origin and that NASA is engaged in a cover-up regarding its existence and origin. The myth claims the satellite has orbited around the world for 13,000 years, although its true origins remain unknown.
5. Paranormal photobomber
Jim Templeton’s picnic in Burgh Le Marsh on the east coast of England along with his wife and daughter seemed absolutely ordinary until they saw a photo they have taken that day, revealing an unseen visitor.
The figure wasn’t there when the photo was taken, so Jim asked Kodak for answers. After examining the film, the company was none the wiser about this strange appearance.
6. An ape on the loose
In 2000, a woman mailed in photos of what she claimed to be a skunk ape in the back yard of her Sarasota County home in Florida also documenting the bizarre behavior of the supposed ape in a letter to the sheriff’s department.
7. Extraterrestrial artwork
We’ve been wondering if there’s been life elsewhere in space for centuries, even back in the 15th century.
Some believe that the looming object in the Madonna with Saint Giovannino painting from the XV century is a UFO. The work of art was created by Italian artist Domenico Ghirlandaio and no one has been quite sure about what the peculiar object above Mary’s left shoulder is supposed to be.
8. A lake of UFOs
On the 20th of May 1967, Stefan Michalak experienced more than he bargained for on his weekend getaway at Falcon Lake, Manitoba.
While hanging out, Michalak said that two circular objects started to descend in his direction, and they eventually landed right next to him.
Michalak claimed that when the doors opened he heard voices speaking in a strange language. When he tried to examine the spacecraft he was burnt by a grid-shaped vent which also burned through his clothes. The supposed UFO sighting became known as the Falcon Lake Incident.
9. The haunted hospital
This old abandoned hospital in Waverly Hills, Kentucky has long thought to be haunted by local residents and if you look closely at this spooky photograph you can see what may or may not be an old patient.
10. The Brown Lady
Raynham Hall is a country house in Norfolk, England which has been the seat of the Townsend family for nearly 400 years. This photo, taken in 1936, is regarded by many to be the most famous ghost photography in history. It shows the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall, a ghost which reportedly haunts the house. It was taken by Country Life magazine and it bears the name because of the brown brocade dress it is claimed the Lady wears.
According to legend, the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall is the ghost of Lady Dorothy Walpole who was supposedly imprisoned and abused in the manor by her husband Charles Townshend.
11. The original Haunted House
This is a picture of the mysterious Amityville, New York house that inspired The Amityville Horror book and multiple movies on the 1974 murders that took place inside it. Back then, Ronald DeFeo, 23, killed his parents and four siblings on the property.
In the shaded upper left-hand corner of the photo, you can see the figure of what appears to be a ghost.
In June 2016, it was reported the supposedly-haunted house, built in 1927, was back on the market.
