What was lighting up the deer in these trail camera pictures?
That’s a question that Rainer and Edith Shattles of Jackson County, Miss. have been puzzling over since February, when a trail camera on their 150-acre property captured some truly out-of-this-world photos.
The trail camera pictures captured a bizarre encounter between some deer in a field on their property and an unidentified flying object.
According to WLOX News, the encounter began at 7:24 pm on Feb. 16, when a few deer popped up in front of the camera. A few minutes later, a strange dim floating light appeared around the deer. The light grew brighter and brighter until an even stranger shape appeared – an object that looks like two floating headlights. The lights illuminated the deer and much of the field around them, and then flew off into the night sky just minutes later.
The Shattles said there are no lights in that section of their property.
So what lit up the deer? A government drone? A massively jacked-up 4×4 with really bright lights? Whitetail hunters from outer space?
“It’s a puzzle that may never be solved,” Rainer Shattle told WLOX News. “And it’s one that’s kind of fun, adds a little flavor to life, I guess you could say.”
