In her own words, Mellisa Braham from St Helens recalls: ‘It was my birthday recently and as a present I got a new smartphone. On Friday, February 26th, as the day was nice, I decided to take my dog for an afternoon walk, I also took my new phone to test the camera.
During the afternoon I made several short video clips and a selection of random photographs in different resolutions. Later in the evening I uploaded the photograph to my PC to have a look at.
It was while looking at the still photos that I spotted in one of them what appears to be a small humanoid figure walking from right to left.
Now I’m not saying the object is a small, living, breathing being of some sort, but looking at the enlargements of the object one can clearly see what resembles a bipedal creature of some sort: a head, eye, body, arms, legs, hands and feet can be clearly seen.
Whatever the mysterious object is, it is definitely something, as it reflects sunlight and also casts a shadow on the ground. It doesn’t look like a squirrel, mouse, bird or any other type of animal I’ve seen before, it’s definitely a very strange looking object.
I suppose it could be something or nothing, something very ordinary like a piece of rubbish caught at an odd angle, trick of the light etc making it look extraordinary. I’m no photography expert so I don’t really know, all I can say is what it looks like to me.
The photo was taken at full resolution, with a 12 MP camera set to fully automatic, without using zoom. The photo was taken between the entrance to Victoria Park and the now demolished health center in Cowley Hill Lane, St Helens.
Mellisa said she’s going to send the snap to some experts for analysis.
She continued: “A researcher pointed out that the figure looks 2D and lacks detail, as some have pointed out. She said the photo is 100% correct for bright sunny conditions, and that he wouldn’t expect to see much detail unless it was cloudy and dull, and the reason for the 2D appearance is the distance, the size of the figure, and the bright sunlight throughout, he also pointed out that if the figure is a genuine shape-shifting extraterrestrial wormhole traveling entity, then how do we know what this creature would look like to the human eye.
I never saw the figure at the time of taking the picture, it was just a quick test trying out the camera.
If someone left it planted there for a game, a model, toy or cardboard cut out, then why didn’t I see it and surely some eagle-eyed child would have seen it and kept it for themselves?
Also, it wasn’t a windy day, but every now and then there was a breeze strong enough to easily blow a light toy, not to mention a paper cutout, and who can get a piece of paper that’s much less than a millimeter thick? thick to stand alone on a breezy day, with no visible means of suspension?
Mellisa’s story has appeared on several popular extraterrestrial websites and she says she was accused of forgery and ridiculed for bringing it to light.
