10 Creepiest Unsolved Mysteries of All Time
Unsolved mysteries are some of the most mind-boggling things ever. So many people say that they need to see something to believe it, but what happens when they do see it? Sometimes our eyes play tricks on us, but as the old saying goes, pictures don’t lie. Photographs can show us many things. They can answer many questions, but for many people, they raise as many questions as they answer.
These pictures leave their viewers with some serious questions, and once you see them, you’ll never forget them.
The assassination of John F. Kennedy has always been a source of great speculation, and though some people will argue fiercely over whether there was another shooter on the grassy knoll, other people are more interested in the so-called Babushka Lady. This woman stood her ground while shots were fired, and with a camera to her face, she may bring new insight into the 1963 murder. While others ran away, she had a smile on her face and a camera pointed at JFK. However, she walked away from the site carrying her camera, and has never been seen again.
In the Hessdalen Valley of Norway, these lights are a common sight. They show up, they gleam at around ground level, and then they disappear, leaving no sign of what they are or where they came from. Whether they are ghosts sending messages from beyond or some kind of extraterrestrial signal remains a mystery.
Hook Island Sea Monster
We have always been fascinated by the things that lurk in the hidden depths, and when those things are enormous as the Hook Island monster is thought to be, that fascination comes with a bit of fear. The Hook Island monster was first sighted in 1964, and eyewitnesses report a tadpole like monster with a large mouth full of teeth. This picture, taken at that time, shows us how little we know about what lies underneath.
Solway Firth Spaceman
On a warm day in Cumbria, a man, his wife and his daughter were picnicking on the grass above the Solway Firth. When the man got his pictures developed, he got the chilling realization that they were not alone that sunny day. In the middle of nowhere, this spaceman appeared behind his daughter, though none of the three people had any idea that they had company. Who is this fourth person?
The Brown Lady
Some ghosts are notoriously shy, but the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall is something else again. Sightings of this ghost go back for more than 300 years, but in 1936, photographers working in the haunted home caught this picture of her. Experts have gone over this picture over and over again, and as far as anyone can tell, there is no trickery involved. This mysterious figure is moving down the staircase and what she wants, nobody knows.
Black Knight Satellite
Nikola Tesla thought he detected radio signals coming from something in Earth’s orbit. Could he have been tuning in on mystery broadcasts from the Black Knight satellite? This satellite has been orbiting earth for more than a thousand years, far longer than any space program, and its origins are not of this world.
The Faces of the SS Watertown
When two crew members died in an accident on the SS Watertown in 1924, their crewmates gave them a burial at sea. How horrified they must have been when these two ghostly faces drifted up in the water, silently angry at their deaths. The captain snapped six images of this phenomenon, but this is the only one that showed off the faces the way the crew had seen them.
Apollo 17 gave us pictures of the moon that we had never seen before, but one picture was released as a blank. However, more refinement shows a clear pyramid structure in the background. What could this pyramid be, and who has walked the moon before humans ever made it to that rocky surface?
Goddard Squadron Photograph
Sometimes, the dead are closer to us than we would believe. In this 1919 photo, the blurred face of a man can be seen behind one of the participants. It seems like a normal exposure issue until the face was recognized as that of an air mechanic who had died two days before. Perhaps he was unsure of his death and had decided to show up for the picture anyway!
Located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the Paulding Lights have been a local mystery for years. These lights show up and act like no lights should. They hover, they spin, they go up to sit in the trees, and then they disappear. Even years of research have not revealed what these lights are or what they want.
