20 Mysterious Photos That Cannot Be Explained

Have you ever looked at a photo and been confused by what you were seeing? These types of photos can be mysterious, daunting and even mind-boggling. You may find yourself searching for an explanation for some of the photos in this list, only to realize that you’re unable to find one. Here are 20 mysterious photos that cannot be explained.

1. This creepy photo was taken in the mid-90s by a tourist visiting a cave in Ras al-Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. Supposedly, two friends who entered the cave saw a freaky creature and decided to take a photo. The friends also apparently heard a boy shrieking right after the picture was taken. They contacted the police, who searched the cave and found a human body. To this day, the two friends swear that what they saw was not a human body, but a scary, alien-like creature. There are many legends and stories surrounding the picture that differ in the outcome for the two friends. Some people believe that only one of the friends made it out of the cave alive. The image first began circulating in the middle of the 1990s in England when the photographer returned to his home country and sold it to the Bournemouth Advertiser where it ran in the newspaper and caught global attention.

However, this seemingly innocuous picture ended up showing an unsettling background presence. If you look closely at this picture, you can spot a strange, floating figure to the left of the photo. Could it be a ghost, an illusion, or simply a smudge on the camera?
