Most people have seen the unexplained photograph above which became known as the “Solway Fifth Spaceman”, but most people don’t know the bizarre experience the photographer had afterwards. The photo was taken in the 1960′s by Jim Templeton and is of his daughter, near Burgh Marsh. After the photograph became popular, Templeton was approached by two men who claimed they worked for the government. They identified themselves as code #9 and #10 and asked Templeton to get into their car, and he complied. They drove him out to the area where the photograph was taken and began to ask him questions about the day he took the photograph. They asked him how the animals in the area behaved and he replied that they had seemed scared and huddled together. Apparently unsatisfied with this answer, the men became hostile and began to accuse Templeton of fabricating the image. The men headed back to their car and left the photographer behind to find his own way home.
