There are a lot of unsolved mysteries out there in the world. It's always our hope that someday, with the proper amount of science and research, we'll be able to solve them. However, it's more likely that these burning questions will remain unanswered. As far as these mysteries are concerned, all we have are photographs and pictures to puzzle over and wrack our brains about, hoping that an answer will reveal itself.
1. The Woman In The Brown Coat.
The woman in the brown coat, or the Babushka Lady as she was later called by the FBI, was very close to JFK when he was assassinated in Dallas. According to eyewitnesses, this woman filmed the entire thing. It's thought that from her vantage point, she may have been able to answer some critical questions about what really happened that day. However, the FBI was never able to track her down, and no one has since been able to figure out the identity of this mystery observer.
2. The Dyatlov Pass Incident.
In 1959, a group of nine experienced Soviet mountaineers died mysteriously in the Ural Mountains. The photo above was taken by the rescue crew. According to the rescuers, the hikers ripped open their tent and ran out barefoot into the snow trying to escape from something. Six of the hikers died of hypothermia, two died of major chest fractures, and one hiker suffered severe head injuries. Alarmingly, he was also missing his tongue. If that wasn't strange enough, the clothing worn by the hikers was suddenly highly radioactive.
3. The Phoenix Lights.
On March 13, 1997, a series of bright unidentified lights appeared over the city of Phoenix, Arizona and remained there, completely stationary, for hours. The Air Force said that the lights were flares dropped for a training exercise. However, the lights reappeared over Phoenix in 2007 and 2008. They still have not been explained.
4. Solway Firth Astronaut.
Jim Templeton took this photo of his daughter while they were out for the day. At the time of the photo, Templeton didn't notice anything strange in the marsh area where they were. However, after the film was developed, he noticed what appeared to be a spaceman standing right behind his daughter. There was no one else around when the photo was taken, and Kodak even weighed in, saying that the film was not altered in any way.
