The second photo captured a mysterious figure which has since been dubbed the Solway Firth Spaceman.

Strange Spaceman in the Marsh?
It depicts what some say is a spaceman in a astronaut suit.
The strange thing, however, is that Templeton, up until his death in November 2011, swore that the figure was not in the background while the pictures were being taken. He claims the only other people on the marsh that day, apart from his wife and daughter, were two old ladies sitting in a car at the far end - 300-400 yards away.
Ufologists quickly began showing interest in the incident after Templeton made claims that in July 1964, he was visited by MIB's (Men in Black) and was told by them, during a trip back to Burgh Marsh, that he had seen an alien. However, Templeton claims he was abandoned by the men when he admitted to them that he had not seen the figure while taking the photographs.
Was a 'Spaceman' captured in these photos?
Is it a trick of light and shadow causing another object to look this way (perhaps the mother)?
Maybe its an outright hoax, something placed to look like the spaceman?
Or maybe something else entirely?
