When installing surveillance cameras in the forests of Jackson, Miss., Rainer Shattles and his wife Edith were just hoping to catch a few photos of deer or elk. However, upon examining their footage, they say something that left them speechless: an apparent deer UFO encounter. As reported by WLBT-TV on April 3, the mysterious deer UFO images were captured by an infrared camera on the evening of Feb. 16, 2014.
The images have since become the subject for research projects about aliens and unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Cut footage from surveillance cameras show lights, which seem to appear out of nowhere, in the sky in a remote area of Jackson County.
The area, to be precise, is Cumbest Bluff, a remote region in Jackson County, which is not far away from the infamous area where co-workers Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker claimed that they were abducted by aliens while fishing near Pascagoula, Mississippi.
In a news interview with the couple, they really seem surprised, if not alarmed, by the deer UFO sighting that occurred in the vicinity of their home.
"Well at first, I was trying to see if it was something or a reason for what we were seeing. But the more we looked at it, the more we realized that it was something that was in the air, it was something that I had never seen before," Rainer expressed.
In the video, one can see deer near some trees, and then suddenly two very bright lights appear nearby, similar to those of a car. However, the two lights, while maintaining a fixed distance between them, give rise to many doubts because the two bright dots are high off the ground.
The U.S. media is split: some believe this is just a jeep in the distance while others say it may be a drone. But others are still suggesting the simplest explanation: a UFO.
