November 5, 2007, beginning at 9:34 PM Central, Sarcoxie, Missouri.
One of twelve images shown in this Earthfiles report of unknown, small,
aerial object close to ground photographed over four hour period
on Missouri hunter's Cuddeback Digital Camera.
Bob Coine: “When I first put my deer camera's six frames up on YouTube and Woods N Water TV (Outdoor Channel) for feedback that might help explain what my photos were, one of our viewers sent me a series of pictures that he had not shared with anybody because they were really odd. They were not even similar to the photos I had taken. These photos show what appears to be a roundish object with a series of odd, circular shapes around the outside. When you get to the far left or far right on the thing moving through the dozen photographs, the object seems to be turning. I really see that when I bring his Missouri photos up as a series, and flip through them fast. This object appears not only to be rotating, but going up, down and right and left, as well as reflecting light on to the ground.
WHAT PROVOKED THE CAMERA TO TAKE THE PHOTOGRAPHS?
No idea! Obviously this (disc) thing – whatever it is – was able to trigger the camera. So, there must have been motion detected or the infrared beam was broken in order to trigger these pictures.
THIS MAN WHO SUBMITTED THE PHOTOGRAPHS TO YOU, HE HAD AN INFRARED-TRIGGERING DIGITAL CAMERA JUST LIKE YOURS?
Yes. But his is manufactured by a different company called Cuddeback Digital Scouting Cameras. It’s stamped on each photo, along with the date and time.
WHY DID HE HAVE THE CAMERA SET UP?
Basically for imaging deer, as a lot of hunters do, to know which type and sex of deer are on the game trail. I learned about this in his February 14, 2008, email after my TV show. He wanted to get hold of someone concerning my six deer cam photos. I’ll read his email verbatim:
‘Thank you for replying. I’m sending you these pictures in the attachment. There are 13 separate pictures [ Editor's Note: 12 are shown below], and I assure you, just as you said, these are not doctored pictures. It was just as much a surprise to me as it was to my family when I showed them.
Notice as the object moves side-to-side, there is a reflection on the ground that moves in close relationship to the object. I have a picture that shows me back there two hours prior to this with nothing unusual in the area, so I don’t know what this is – but hopefully, I never have to encounter this while I’m hunting.
If you think you could find more information about this, please use the photos any way you can.’

Got know idea what this could be! Internos could you maybe calculate the size of this light?

Internos' "reflections" are in all the frames.
I'm thinking "flashlight".
Did the camera owner happen to take a flashlight out and scan the area him or herself with a flashlight?
If not, I'd check the ground on 'this' side of the camera for footprints as somebody else might have been on the property, scanning the deerfield with a flashlight.
I'd also check the ground for any reflective, silverish rubbish (trash).
