A ranch owner with a trail cam was viewing the footage later when they noticed something odd. It appears that a craft or helicopter of some kind may have shined a bright beam of light down onto the ranch for a long period of time:
At my ranch in near Meridian, rural central Texas, I have several ( 8 total) trail cams set out at my various deer feeders. I periodically retrieve the SD cards and check the pics.
Perhaps ET abducted some deer? Or perhaps this is just a trick of light. If a man-made craft was observing the area with light, what would be the motive?
If you've seen anything strange in the Cranfills Gap area? Report your sighting!
