University Lecturer Claims to Have Photographed Tiny Fairies Flying in English Countryside
It may be one of the most significant discoveries in the history of mankind . Or one of the largest deception . John Hyatt , a 53 - year - old professor at Manchester Metropolitan University , is believed to have taken pictures of the little fairies in the English countryside . These pictures show her small humanoid creatures with wings floating flying swarms . Professor is now on a mission to get more and more mature to believe that fairies are real, and " brought a bit of a magic in their lives ' .
Hyatt is the director of Manchester Institute of Research and Innovation in Art and Design ( MIRIAD ) at Metropolitan University . He is believed to NASA pictures while she was out photographing the Lancashire landscape over the past two years . The pictures are now on display in a special exhibition called Fairies in Rossendale Museum Whitaker Whitaker Park , Rossendale . Hyatt insists that they are 100 percent real and not Photoshopped . The picture has gone viral since he released them to the public . People around the world are very baffled over his claim , and some are starting to believe him .
" That was a bit of a shock when I blew it up , I did a double take , " he said . " I then went out and took pictures of flies and gnats and they just do not look the same . People can decide for themselves what they are. " Hyatt , a former member of The Three Johns punk band in the '80s and '90s , said that the message to the people to approach the creature with an open mind . " I think it 's one of those situations where you need to see to believe , " he admitted .
Hyatt 's story reminds us of the famous Cottingley fairies image captured by two schoolgirls in Bradford , decades ago . 60 years later , they announced that they were faked pictures with the cardboard cut - out . But Hyatt says that he created NASA is very different from the fairies depicted in children's books . " Everything is stereotyped , " he said . " But there are stranger things in life than fairies , and grow throughout life . "
" I do not believe they are just smaller versions of us and go and have a cup of tea at the end of the day , " Hyatt pointed out . " And no one is suggesting they have any special powers . From my experience , they are enjoying themselves and had a little dance in the sunlight going on . They just beautiful pictures and beauty can make people believe . "
That's really beautiful , but I'm not sure what to believe . Regardless of whether the images are created in fairies or not , I can not deny they look like small fuzzy Tinkerbells . At least they look a lot friendlier than other real - life fairies OC we featured in the past .
