St. Helens, Merseyside Woman Snaps a Possible Alien Creature

Mellisa Braham, a St. Helens resident, reported seeing a tiny humanoid-shaped figure on February 26 Friday. It was her birthday recently, and as a gift, she received a new smartphone. Seeing it was a lovely afternoon on Friday, she decided to take her dog for a walk with her new phone to test out the camera.

She took several video clips and photographs at different resolutions. Later on in the evening, she uploaded the pictures to her PC to look at them.

When looking through the still photos, she noticed one of them showing what looks like a small humanoid-shaped figure walking from right to left.

Initially, she could not tell if the object was a tiny living and breathing being of some kind, but after she enlarged the photo, she saw what resembled a bipedal being with a head, eye, body, arms, legs, hands, and feet.

She said the object in the picture reflects sunlight and also casts a shadow on the ground and doesn’t look like a bird, rat, squirrel, or any other kind of animal.

Mellisa doesn’t rule out that the object could be something of nothing, something mundane captured at a weird angle or just a trick of the light, making it look extraordinary. She sent the photo to several experts and researchers to analyse and know what they make of it.

The picture was snapped at full resolution, 12 MP, camera set to fully automatic, and no zoom used. It was taken when the weather was dry, mild, and sunny at 16:05 between the Victoria park entrance and the now-demolished healthcare centre on Cowley Hill Lane, St. Helens, Merseyside, UK.

  1. Someone was having a laugh. If you go to Google Maps Street View for this blocked off road (which is really Balker Drive, St Helens, England), you can see it is a run-down old access road of some kind. My bet is that if this person did not do this, then someone else stuck this silhouette of some alien dude in the ground as a joke. Would make some sense as to why she did not notice anything moving. She was far enough away to not really pick up that this was a small, stationary decoration and just snapped a picture.

    But you also have to wonder why she would be taking a picture of this dumpy old street when Victoria Park is right there with a hundred different areas to take prettier landscape photos and videos. If you go to Google Maps the street view option only shows the road up to the gate blocking traffic. No further. And zooming in shows little detail. Looks like the image was taken in October of 2020 so fairly recently to where that decoration might have been there then. Although, when zooming in max, you can let your imagination roam and make out a little vertical white spot in about the same spot as the “alien” in her photo! 😉,-2.7453112,3a,15y,59.79h,88.02t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1szLhgL_LDj2OdakEgwXLE8Q!2e0!!7i16384!8i8192

  2. Compare the angle of the shadows in the photo of the so -called little being with the angle of the shadow of the person taking the photo. Phony. I rest my case
