This picture was discovered by us recently in a book called ‘Life and Death of a Pharaoh – Tutankhamen’ by Christiane Desroches-Noblecourt, published by World Books in 1963. It is allegedly of a seven or eight month old unborn child, but certainly looks very different to that in our opinion. For instance, look at the length of the fingers! they are extremely long, unlike those of an infant just about to be born, or an adult human for that matter. Also look at the shape of the head and the large eyes… are you getting the picture yet?
The paragraph that accompanies the picture reads as follows: ‘Two small coffins, bearing Tutankhamen’s name and laid head to foot and side by side in a plain chest, contained the mummies of two seven or eight month fetuses, one of them probably female (pictured). It does not seem possible in the midst of such a special collection of objects that a place would have been set aside for two supposedly still-born children of Tutenkhamen and Ankhesenamun.
Why should such royal children, dying before their father, be buried in his tomb? There is nothing to confirm or to invalidate such a hypothesis, but the pattern of the archaic delta ritual invites one to consider the little mummies as the equivalents of the two placental (khonsu) images in Horemheb’s tomb, which contained remnants of burial furnishings specifically connected with the delta ritual, as did the ravaged tombs of Amenophis II and Tuthmosis IV.
The photograph was then shipped to America to be enhanced by computer, and analyzed. Dr. Bruce Maccabee, optical physicist with the United States Navy gave his expert conclusion:”I had great hopes that this case would prove definitive. Sadly circumstances prevent it from being so.”Spencer made no money from his photograph, and relinquished all rights to the photograph to UFO investigators.
That night, police chief Jeff Greenhaw received a phone call from an excited lady who said that she had witnessed a “spaceship” land in an open field not far from the town proper. The sheriff took off with a camera and found a “tinfoil alien” who consented to be photographed but then ran away. The ridicule that the whole story brought on the sheriff’s office cost Greenhaw his job as well as his wife. Some think that he may have encountered someone wearing a fireman’s asbestos suit; others think that the being in the suit was a friend of Greenhaw and that the whole thing was an attempt to get famous that went terribly wrong. Still others believe this to be an authentic picture of an extraterrestrial.
