Here’s the video compilation — and keep reading for a rundown of the 10 photos and where they appear in the clip:

 

 

1) The Babushka Lady, 0:09:

According to Wikipedia, The Babushka Lady is a nickname for an unknown woman present during the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy who might have photographed the events that occurred in Dallas' Dealey Plaza at the time President John F. Kennedy was shot. Her nickname arose from the headscarf she wore similar to scarves worn by elderly Russian women.

Neither she, nor the film she may have taken, has yet been positively identified. The police and the FBI never found her, and the film shot from her position never turned up, despite a request by the FBI to local photo processors that they would be interested in any pictures or films of the assassination.

 

2) The Hessdalen Light, :027:

Hessdalen Light is an unexplained light usually seen in the Hessdalen valley in the municipality of Holtålen in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway.

It often appears as a bright white or yellow light of unknown origin standing or floating above the ground level. Sometimes the light can be seen for more than one hour. One theory attributes the phenomenon to an incompletely understood combustion process in the air involving clouds of dust from the valley floor containing scandium … but despite ongoing research there is no convincing explanation yet as to the origin of the lights.

 

3) The Hook Island Sea Monster, :43:

Hook Island is one of the Whitsunday Islands off the coast of the Australian state of Queensland. The island is almost uninhabited and very rugged. In 1964, an image taken at the islands circulated globally after what was believed to be some kind of sea monster was visible.

On December 12th 1964, Robert Le Serrec’s wife spotted a strange object on the lagoon floor. It proved to be a gigantic tadpole-like creature, estimated at about 30 feet long. They took several still photos, gradually moving closer. Eventually Le Serrec and de Jong plucked up the courage to approach it underwater in order to film it. It proved larger than first thought, with its estimated length increasing to 75-80 ft. It didn’t move and they suspected it might be dead, but just as Le Serrec began the filming it opened its mouth and made movements toward them. They returned to the boat, and by this time the creature had moved off.

 

4) The Solway Firth Spaceman (also known as the Solway Spaceman or the Cumberland Spaceman), 1:03:

The Solway Firth Spaceman refers to a figure seen in a photograph taken in 1964 by local historian Jim Templeton. The photo was taken on Burgh Marsh, situated near Burgh by Sands, overlooking the Solway Firth in Cumbria, England. Templeton claimed the photograph shows a background figure wearing a space suit and insisted that he did not see anyone present when the photograph was taken.

Modern theories suggest that the figure was probably the photographer's wife, standing with her back towards the camera, her dress appearing white due to overexposure — but it’s never been fully explained.

 

5) The SS Watertown Ghosts, 1:20:

Michael Meehan and James Courtney were crew members of the SS Watertown in 1924. They died during an accident involving gas fumes. They were buried at sea, but the next day, crew members started seeing their faces in the water on the port side of the ship.

Those faces were supposedly captured in this photo, which were looked at by an investigative company who determined neither had been tampered with.

 

6) The Black Knight Satellite, 1:37:

The Black Knight satellite is an alleged object orbiting Earth in near-polar orbit that was photographed in 1998 and connected to reports dating back to 1899 when Nikola Tesla picked up a repeating radio signal which he believed was coming from space.

Theories abound about this dark, tumbling object, including the idea that it might be a thermal blanket that had been lost during spacewalk — but others believe it others believe is approximately 13,000 years old and of extraterrestrial origin.

 

7) The Cooper Falling Body, 1:58:

Sometime in the 1950s the Cooper family of Texas bought an old house and moved into it. On their first night there, the father took a photo of the mother and grandmothers posing with the two kids at the dining room table. When the image subsequently developed, they saw what looked like a body falling or hanging from the ceiling — despite the fact that they hadn’t noticed anything at the time.

Many believe this unexplained image shows a spirit appearing in the frame, although others say it may be a a doll being dangled in front of the camera to make sure the boys looked into the lens.

 

8) The Geophone Rock Anomoly, 2:12:

The photo was taken by Apollo 17 near the Geophone Rock during the last flight to the moon, and it was listed as a "blank" in the Apollo 17 photographic index. However, it’s not completely blank, as adjusting the contrast reveals pyramid-like structures.

Various optical effects could have caused the shape, but no official conclusions have ever been made.

 

9) The Goddard’s Squadron Photograph, 2:28:

This image, taken in 1919, was first published in 1975 by Sir Victor Goddard, a retired R.A.F. officer. It’s a group portrait of Goddard's squadron, which had served in World War I at the HMS Daedalus training facility.

In back of the airman positioned on the top row, fourth from the left, the face of another man appears — which is said to be the face of Freddy Jackson, an air mechanic who had been accidentally killed by an airplane propeller two days earlier. His funeral had taken place on the day this photograph was snapped.

 

10) The Mysterious Case of Elisa Lam, 2:45:

Elisa Lam was a 21-year-old Canadian student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, whose body was recovered from a water tank atop the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19, 2013. On the day of her disappearance, Lam was captured by an elevator security camera. In the footage, Lam is seen exiting and re-entering the elevator, talking and gesturing in the hallway outside, and sometimes seeming to hide within the elevator, which itself appears to be malfunctioning.

Explanations ranged from claims of paranormal involvement to the bipolar disorder Lam suffered from; one viewer has argued that the video has itself been tampered with. Here’s the elevator footage, which remains officially unexplained:
