Aliens among us?
File this under Low Threshold of Belief. Several Southeast Asian news sites have recently published photos that supposedly document the presence of "extra terrestrial beings" here on Earth. For instance, the Visayan Daily Star ran a picture (below) of "Emily Santodelsis" posing with a small alien. Strangely, she insisted that she hadn't noticed the alien while the picture was being taken. She only spotted it later, when she looked at the photo.


And back in January, the Bangkok Post ran a picture of an alien supposedly spotted on a beach in Thailand.


The Open Minds UFO investigation site explains that the appearance of these alien photos coincides with the addition of new special effects to the Camera360 app for Android phones. These special effects allow the easy addition of UFOs, extraterrestrials, or lightning to photos taken with the Android phone.

Indeed. Even if it wasn't for the app the aliens, especially the first one, look very much photomanipulated. It's reflection should be visible on the glass door, also the shadow is cast right underneath the little guy while the lightsource is to the left of the image. Finally, the perspectives don't match - he's shot straight on, while the woman in the background seems to be shown slightly from above. How the Visayan Daily Star could've taken this for true is beyond me.

The second one is adorable though.
