"...In fact I think that the 'spaceman' is a person standing with both their feet firmly on the ground... if you look at the top of the hill you'll see that there is a thick hazy dark blue line between the hill and the sky - that's the distant horizon and follows the hill top almost perfectly. It's the girl and the photographer who are at an odd angle! The 'spaceman' is someone wearing a white jacket and a white/cream scarf. The scarf is drapped back over their left shoulder then wrapped left to right around their neck and then drapped over their left breast. They either have short platinum blond hair (in a bobcut?), are wearing a clear plastic hood or a whitish motorcycle helmet (although I think that this option is pushing it slightly). So have I solved it? My first mystery solved? Folks? Niles"

This picture was the second out 3 to be taken and nothing was in the other two and besides wouldn't u think he would see them standing there and be like hey get the heck out of my shot you people don't have an open mind at all
To the above commenter: No. I wouldn't think that at all. Being a professional photographer, and having taught photography to many beginners for many years, I know that amateur photographers, when framing a shot, tend to focus their attention completely and entirely on the subject they wish to capture - to the absolute exclusion of everything else in the frame.
