A post written by user Killerfishfinger in the Paranormal subreddit entitled “Found this photograph on my phone, have no memory of taking it…”, so obviously I took the bait. The “I found a photo I didn’t take” trope is actually a pretty common one as far as internet scares go, and they’re usually quick to disappoint, this picture, however, might be a different story.
The post stated that the owner of the picture had found it later the next day, but when he checked the details, the image in question had been taken at 22:51:22, which would have been impossible because he was sleeping by that time. At first glance the image is pretty boring, showing just two bright, inconspicuous lights that could belong to anything. Big deal, right?
Another user, Runner_one, decided to bring up the gamma in order to get a better look at what was happening in the darker sections of the image, and that’s when things got a whole lot more interesting. The strange photo shows what looks an awful lot like a man standing in a field looking up at a mechanical object hovering in the night sky, and according to Killerfishfinger, the man in the image isn’t him.
