Tiny Humanoid captured on camera.

We recently received an interesting email narrative and photograph at our enquiries desk from someone telling us that they had taken some photographs which when later viewed on a computer appeared to show what looked like a tiny humanoid shaped figure.

We subsequently advised the witness that in order for us to properly investigate the sighting we would require a fully completed sighting report as per the information on our ‘report-a-sighting’ page (this is standard BUFORA practice), which the witness then politely declined.

So not having conducted an investigation into this case, we are unable to fully assess the veracity of the witness’s story, and therefore we cannot offer a definitive or probable cause, but we should stress that we have absolutely no reason to suspect the witness is not being completely honest in describing what she saw on that occasion.

We were told by the witness that she had also sent her report and photographs to ‘other experts and researchers’, and when we checked we found there were indeed several other sites covering this case, but they had simply published what they had been given, and none that we could see had conducted any research or investigation. The ‘conclusion’ often given was “Could this be evidence of some kind of strange creature, a trick of the light, or is the whole thing a clever hoax? You decide.”

At BUFORA, along with many other science based research organisations, we find that up to 98% of all ‘UFO’ sightings can be shown to have a perfectly conventional explanation when reported quickly and with detailed and accurate information, and although we had not conducted a full investigation into this case, our initial instincts were that the ‘Humanoid’ looked as if it could easily be a ‘cardboard cut-out’, so we decided to conduct a simple objective experiment to test this hypothesis and to see if we might be able to recreate a similar photograph using our own cardboard cut-out MTH (My Tiny Humanoid).

The results of our experiment are shown below and we will leave it to the reader to form their own opinion on the answer to the question “Could this be evidence of some kind of strange creature, a trick of the light, or is the whole thing a clever hoax? You decide.”
