Skeptic News: Aberdeenshire Aliens?

From: Daily Record

A STUNNED couple yesterday told how they captured a spooky green man on camera at their home.

Gary and Amanda Linney said the strange figure was spotted running away from their cottage as they
experimented with a new camera.

The bizarre snaps emerged just days after another family claimed to have filmed a UFO floating above their house about 25 miles away.

Former policeman Gary, 52, said there was no explanation for the figure.

He said: “It looks like a little green man running. It just disperses into the surface of the road.

“If you look closely, you can see a head. It’s very surreal. I was a policeman and a pilot for 20 years and have never seen anything like this before.”

Hotel owners Gary and Amanda, 46, from Collieston, Aberdeenshire, tried to recreate the picture but have never seen the strange light since.

Amanda, 45, said staff at their hotel, which is also thought to be haunted, suggested the ghostly figure may have come from there. She said: “I have no idea what it was. We have used the same setting, taken photos in the same location and in different locations and nothing has appeared again. We have experienced a lot of strange things since we took over the place two years ago so the staff think something spooky had followed me home that night.”

If you look at the two photos than it seems that a less extraterrestrial or paranormal explanation could possibly be a reflection on the lens from the bright light sources in both. That or perhaps a nice wee free advert for a hotel… (But to suggest that would be cynicism and not skepticism)
