JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - They were caught on camera the night of February 16. Mysterious lights that appeared in the sky over the 150 acres that Rainer and Edith Shattles call home in the Cumbest Bluff area of Jackson County. Were they a phenomenon that's simple to explain, or something else?
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," Edith recalled. "I was looking for a nice buck to be
showing up on the trail camera actually."
The timeline of the pictures is clear. At 7:24pm, deer appear and all
is normal. At 7:29, a dim light appears. At 7:35, it gets brighter.
Then at 7:53, a weird shape appears on the camera. The deer are lit up
brightly, but how? The cameras are infrared and don't emit light. At
7:56, another sharper light appears, then it gets much closer, seemingly
focused on the deer. It looks like headlights, but well off the ground
and there is no road. It then flies away.
Rainer takes me to the site deep in the woods. I see the trees where the object appeared. Rainer tells me what he's thinking.
"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."
