A UFO in Mississippi?

A couple claims it spotted a set of mysterious lights near their home.


Was it a phenomenon or something else?

Doug Walker spoke to the pair about their close encounter.

The Shattles never tire of looking at the strange images caught by their trail cameras on that clear winter night.

"We have unusual things happen around here that happen, but it's usually associated with our grandchildren. But this case, we didn't know what it was," said Edith Shattles.

  • 7:24pm - Deer appear and all is normal.

  • 7:29pm - A dim light appears.

  • 7:35pm - It gets brighter.

  • 7:53pm - A weird shape appears on the camera. The deer are lit up brightly, but how? The cameras are infrared and don't emit light.

  • 7:56pm - Another sharper light appears, then it gets much closer, seemingly focused on the deer. It looks like headlights, but well off the ground an there is no road. It then flies away. These are the trees where the object appeared.

"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," said Rainer Shattles.

Reaction from friends is what you would expect.

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

"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."

"While Rainer and Edith admit they are wondering what this object was, would like to find out, are enlisting the help of friends to try and solve the mystery, they also say it's been quite a bit of fun," said Doug Walker.

"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."
