The UFO Phenomenon

Mysterious object appears on trail camera

The photographs seem to show an anomalous object appearing and disappearing within a matter of seconds.
Discovered on Monday by an anonymous witness before being sent along to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the images were captured on a motion-triggered Moultrie trail camera.

The first few images taken by the camera that day showed nothing out of the ordinary, but then in one shot, some sort of strange mechanical apparatus seemed to have appeared out of nowhere.

In the next image, which was taken only a few seconds later, the object was gone again.

"This object is less than 200ft from our house," the witness wrote. "We have nothing that would look like this thing on the back. I am sending two pictures taken in the same minute."
"The first shows it is there and the second shows it is gone."

The strangeness didn't end there either as around seven hours later another image from the same camera managed to pick up another anomaly - this time a metallic object in the sky.

"Also attached is a picture of an item in the sky too big to be a bird and not the shape of anything I have ever seen in the sky," the witness wrote. "It is here, again there, and then gone in about the same minute. The item in the sky is also to the right maybe 35 degrees, it is a black object."

A video providing an in-depth look at all the pictures can be viewed below.

Been raining steady for over a week. Still waiting on chucking a flat rock, or piece of wood, out in front of it.

Unless it has been positively identified, it's a it's very definition.

Dang !  Got it wrong .     But I do know why that is there , some one was trying to mess with the camera by using the  stock. They were trying to cover up the image of the UFO it might be able to film in the background  !

It's interesting how paredoelia is affected by what we're familiar with: my first guess was a clutch pedal on an older model Ford tractor. Lol My question: why would someone put a trail cam in that location? There doesn't appear to be much  cover for wildlife.

This just helps make Ufology even more useless than it already is, to include as a UFO every object in the air that can't be positively identified as a "UFO", because to be pedantic about it, it's an object, it's flying and it's unidentified, therefore UFO.   If I see someone throw an object and I don't know what it is that they threw, should I declare that I've seen a UFO because it was an object, it was flying and I don't know whether it was a stone, a stick or some other object? Fact is, UFO does generally mean more than simply any flying thing that haven't been identified.

You know as well as I do that people associate UFO with alien space craft. Seeing a person throwing an object not knowing what that object is just requires Common Sense...which isn't common.
