I mean, would a picture of a spacecraft taken through an Earth-based telescope be enough?

These days, some people do not trust the space agencies to tell us the truth, so maybe a picture like this might actually hold more weight with them. However, I have to say, the kind of person who does not believe in local space aliens is going to trust the word of the government and space agencies more than a land-based telescope I guess.

It gets complicated I suppose, because an image of a strange spacecraft brings up all kinds of other questions and beliefs.
How do you define what an alien is? Do bacteria or other potential lifeforms on Europa or Enceladus count?

Dont know many bacteria which can fly spacecraft, but size is no limitation. If you have different planetry & environmental conditions, then size is going to be different too.
