The Ron Hill Sighting with Alien Photograph


An alleged UFO sighting and landing by a fourteen year old boy [Ron Hill] who took a photograph of an alien who debarked from the UFO (spherical craft) on July 21, 1967 is recounted best here:

The Iron Skeptic

Not only does the photograph fascinate but the similarity to the Flatwoods Monster sighting on September 12th, 1952 also fascinates.


Did young Ron Hill create (fake) his photograph based upon what he had read about the Flatwoods creature?

Or did young Ron Hill actually capture a "real" Flatwoods being all his own?

Nick Redfern conjectures that the Flatwoods Monster may have been a military psy-operation. (His suggestion appears here in an earlier post and also at his web-site).

What's your take?



  • That's a nice costume, sort of a take off on Emperor Ming I wonder who it's seamstress was? Seriously, I doubt the military was behind the original event. It would have been too complex to stage versus the other simpler stagings they have done using basic inference. I think the photograph was faked.I think the original was more akin to a ghost in a localized frame that borrowed from the larger environment of information creating one of the many hybridised variants on a humanoid theme. The observer unwittingly tailored the details in the co-creation of the event.In these events within and without get mixed up. Dr Persinger is still in search of the source of this transience of a energetic energy field in the environment that waxes and wanes that has such a profound effect on our own field. A poor analogy is this operates on one level like a computer network, and the down loading from a virtual library gets variegated by the user, which fits very neatly into quantum theory.

  • BTW..
    Is this an example of 21st Century hoaxing in the tradition of the photograph in the posting? The ambivalence of evidence continues unabated...sort of mildly entertaining.

  • Very interesting, and definitely very similar to the Ace of Spades head reported at Flatwoods.

  • Dunno the similarity between Ron Hill's photo and the famous title of Mothoread bang Ace of Spades... (Sorry sorry, I really could not help myself!).

    More seriously, any clue about the camera Ron Hill was using? Find nothing with our best friend, Google.

  • Gilles,

    I, too, after stumbling on this sighting, tried to find out more.

    The Iron Skeptic site was the only place that had any real info on the Ron Hill encounter.

    I looked in Ron Story's Extraterrestrial Encyclopedia and David Ritchie's UFO book, but nothing in either.

    I thought Nick might have more, but apparently he doesn't.

    I'll keep looking.

  • Hey Rich
    No, I don't have any more on this; however; it's interesting that 1967 was a major year of wave-style UFO activity in the UK.

  • This photo is not as tightly cropped as on the Iron Skeptic site:

  • Thanks, Terry,

    That is rather interesting.

    I suggest those interested in this sighting (and even those who are not) to copy Terry's URL listing and paste it in their browser.

  • Found this on an old UFO discussion site. Someone says it's a hoax, and suggests this was reported in Saga. I don't have the issue so I can't confirm:

    "John Keel got involved (the boy may have sent him the photo). Keel believed in its authenticity at first, as apparently many had since nothing in boy's reputation indicated that he was given to dishonesty. His story was written up in the July/August 1969 issue of Saga.... Keel says the boy eventually confessed he hoaxed the photo; the 'alien' was actually a doll wrapped in aluminum foil."
