The Uncropped Ron Hill Photograph

Terry the Censor has been kind enough to provide the full photo that teen Ron Hill took in 1967, which we highlighted earlier here.


I find that photo to be very interesting -- if a hoax, nicely done; if not -- fascinating.



  • Admittedly biased towards the prosaic and if it is a tree in the background that can be guessed, I find the photo less exciting and sexy.

  • I've been at this a long time, but who the heck is "Ron Hill" and do we know anything else about the photo? If alive, he would be 60 years old....certainly not to old to question about this alleged encounter and photo. Anyone out there know where he is or know any additional details (i.e., whether he recanted the story at some later date)?

  • Biological contamination works both ways in terms of treading on foreign environments, so one would think, if anything, a containment suit would be mandatory, if that was the purpose as depicted, should it be "real"..However, I agree with Dominick, who is Ron Hill? His account is fuzzy, details lacking and once again we are voyeurs to odd images but images alone are our bane, and serve as bait.

  • IMO it looks like a doll, doctored for the photo, posed on the grass. We used to do that with our Barbies and Kens back in the day, but we made them princesses and princes, not space people, for our pictures. The height of the grass blades and the height of the figure suggest to me it's about Barbie or Ken doll sized.

    But it comes down to whatever someone wants to believe it is, Ken doctored up with his head replaced or a pint-sized extraterrestrial.

  • Yes, the cropping obscures the scale. The full photo suggests a small doll.
