The Solway Firth Spaceman

Fifty years have passed since this photo was taken. On a summer day in 1964, Jim Templeton was out with his daughter near Solway Firth in Cumbria, UK. Other people were nearby, none of them fully equipped astronauts. When Jim developed the photo, he noticed a figure wearing what appeared to be a space suit and helmet behind his daughter.
Since then, the photograph has made headlines all around the world. Kodak has declared the picture genuine and has even offered a prize to whomever managed to prove it was a fake. The prize was never claimed.
