Mississippi couple catches mysterious lights on trail cameras

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON COUNTY, Miss. (WHDH) - A couple in Mississippi set up surveillance cameras and captured mysterious lights on a clear winter night.

"We have unusual things that happen around there that happen, but it's usually associated with our grandchildren. But this case, we didn't know what it was. I was looking for a nice buck to be showing up on the trail camera actually," said Edith Shattles, from Jackson County.

Images showed that deer appeared on camera at 7:24 p.m. and all appeared normal. Five minutes later, a dim light appeared, then at 7:35 p.m., grew brighter. Later, an odd shape appeared on the camera and brightly lit the deer. The infrared cameras used to capture the images did not emit light.

At 7:56 p.m., a sharp light appeared, similar to two headlights, but well off the ground where there was no road.

"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 there air, it was something that I had never seen before," said Rainer Shattles.

Friends shared the Shattles' reactions.

"Well, actually they are all just like we were. 'What? What is that?' And 'let me look at that again,'" said Edith Shattles.

In another image, a deer appears to look at a light from an unknown source.

"Well, if it's alien, I'm not sure about that but it's definitely a UFO. Now whether it's a government drone or what, I wish if nothing else, one of them would step up and say, 'yes, that's ours. It's a puzzle that may never be solved and it's one that's kind of fun, adds a little flavor to life, I guess you could say," said Rainer Shattles.
