Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
Пенсакола, FL
United States

The man is convinced that he captured footage of an alien "humanoid" sneaking into his bedroom, on CCTV footage taken while he was sleeping.

David Eckhart from Pensacola, Florida, had a surveillance camera installed over his bed, and he was stunned watching the footage and seeing how one night a "creature" appeared in his doorway while he was lying down. It was only a few feet away from him.

A small figure, similar to an alien, seems to stick its head out from around the corner, and it can be seen in full growth against the background of yellow light shining from outside the room.

It looked only a few inches in diameter and about two to three feet (0.3-0.6 m) in height, and David even claims that he sees it not for the first time.

The footage, shot in 2006, became known in a recent episode of the Sky History television series "Proof from the Outside", in which it is assumed that the "humanoid" has characteristics similar to those of a gray alien. The shape of his head and long skinny legs correspond to those of the "greys".

Speaking in the episode, author and journalist Alexis Brooks said:

"Very rarely have I met a person who had only one experience. There are often several experiences going back to childhood."

The video was posted on YouTube on the Sky History account, prompting several comments from viewers, although some are not convinced.

Original news

A man is convinced he has captured footage of an alien 'humanoid' creeping into his bedroom in CCTV footage taken while he was sleeping.

David Eckhart from Pensacola, Florida, had a CCTV camera mounted above his bed and was stunned when watching footage back to see the 'creature' appear in his doorway one night as he lie just feet away.

A small alien-like figure appears to poke its head round the corner and can be seen full length against the backdrop of yellow-tinted light shining from outside the room.

It looked only a few inches in diameter and around two to three feet tall, while David even claims it is not the first time he has seen one.

The footage, shot in 2006, has come to light in a recent episode of the Sky History TV series The Proof is Out There, with the show suggesting the 'humanoid' has similar specifications to that of a grey alien.

The shape of its head and its long skinny legs are consistent with that of 'greys'.

Speaking in the episode, author and Journalist Alexis Brooks, said: "It is very rare I have found an individual that has only had one experience.

"Variably, there are often multiple experiences dating back to childhood."

The video was shared to YouTube on the Sky History account, prompting several comments from viewers, though some aren't convinced.

One person said: "I was a skeptic but when u have such a professional CLEAR image like this I’m all in brah…"

A second added: "At least the resolution coincides with the year but you would think that a cctv camera would be able to focus in from a distance. I’m calling bs on this one."

Meanwhile, a third said: "Why is it anytime there’s footage it’s always blurry af what a scam."

David has spoken about his various experiences on a number of podcasts and platforms down the years and remains convinced of their authenticity.

He believes extraterrestrials have been following him since childhood, including to his family home in Pensacola, hence his reasoning for setting up cameras.

Speaking on Fact or Faked in 2011 about his footage, David, appearing alongside wife Jean, said: "I'm seeing people in that house. I don't want to call them aliens because they've dark eyes, little short people."

Wife Jean said: "I don't know what they were, best way I can describe them is the movie Predator, sparkles in the air, you could see silhouettes." Jean added that the aliens had been visiting them for a while and she feels the visits began prior to them moving into the house.

David added: "You can touch them when they're in a transparent state and it feels like a wet static electricity."

Asked if he was certain his claims were not part of a hoax, Eckhart replied: "Absolutely. I would put my hand on the bible. I was just trying to investigate. Everything I did was an experiment."


Des séquences filmées en 2006 montreraient une entité non identifiée entrant dans la chambre d’un homme au beau milieu de la nuit.

Le clip étrange, qui a été mis en ligne il y a quelques jours sur la chaîne YouTube officielle d’History Channel, avait été diffusé dans un épisode de « The Proof is Out There » (La preuve est ailleurs, ndlr), une série télévisée de 2021 qui tentait de faire la lumière sur un certain nombre de phénomènes inexpliqués.

Cet épisode particulier présentait l’histoire d’un homme nommé David qui a enregistré quelque chose d’étrange sur la caméra de surveillance de sa maison à Pensacola, en Floride, en 2006.

Une nuit, il dormait dans sa chambre lorsque la caméra a soudainement filmé ce qui semblait être une entité humanoïde grande et mince regardant par le côté de la porte.

Le clip montre la silhouette se déplaçant brièvement, comme si elle surveillait la pièce.

Bien que la qualité de la séquence soit pour le moins sommaire, elle semble bien montrer une « personne » aux proportions étranges, anormalement grande et maigre, sur le pas de la porte.

L’émission dans laquelle le clip a été diffusé compare ensuite la silhouette à un « gris » extraterrestre stéréotypé – la représentation la plus courante d’une entité extraterrestre dans la culture populaire.

En l’état actuel des choses, il est difficile de dire ce qu’est la silhouette – il est possible qu’il s’agisse simplement d’un humain et que la séquence ait déformé son apparence d’une manière ou d’une autre – et il est également possible que tout ceci soit un canular.

Vous pouvez visionner le clip par vous-même ci-dessous.


List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence


Photo editing began to be used almost immediately after the advent of photography techniques. They were divided into methods of photomontage without manipulation of the image after receiving the photo and retouching of the photo itself or its negative (plate, film, etc.)

Pareidolic illusion

A variety of visual illusions (the so-called "sensory illusions additions"); is the formation of illusory images, as a basis which are the details of the real object. Thus, the vague and obscure the visual image is perceived as something distinct and defined — for example, figures of people and animals in the clouds, the image of a man on the moon, "a hidden message", audible when you reverse the audio recordings, the shadows formed by leaves or complexes of objects in certain lighting (sometimes at a certain angle).

Deliberate falsification

This version includes any falsifications that imitate unexplained phenomena both from the outside: practical jokes, flash mobs, fake news, witness fraud, staging, etc.

There are many ways to make something similar to a ghost or a flying saucer from improvised materials, without using video and photomontage.

Many homemade things made for the sake of a joke, a practical joke or a direct imitation of a mystical being or event can be taken as unexplained not only in photos and videos, but also in reality.
