Did hunter's infrared camera capture images of UFO?

Fort Worth area resident Lisa Brock-Piekarski is a little freaked out by images she discovered on an infrared camera mounted at her family's favorite hunting spot.

That's not because of the deer in the foreground but because of the mysterious lights in the background to the left of the animal.

"What I see looks almost like a Frisbee," Brock-Piekarski told Dallas-Fort Worth NBC affiliate KXAS-TV. "You see a several lights going around, and they're all symmetrical and lit up, and it just looks like an object in the sky."

While she hesitated calling it a UFO, Brock-Piekarski could not identify what might have caused the string of lights to appear in the photos, taken over a timespan of almost two hours.

"There's nothing back there but trees and sky," she said. "There's no hills, no buildings, nothing back there. It's all flat."

Brock-Piekarski said the pictures were taken by an infrared, motion-activated game camera. The equipment wasn't moved, and it doesn't have a flash.

"We've seen falling stars, all kinds of stuff out there because you're away from the city," she said. "Anytime there's a meteor shower or anything, you can see it a lot better, but I've never seen anything like that."

The Brock-Piekarski's hunting land is located in Archer City, which is near Sheppard Air Force Base. The installation did not immediately return requests from KXAS-TV asking if it had planes up the night the images were taken.

Brock-Piekarski added that she was now a little hesitant to go out hunting and to her deer blind alone.

"It's a little creepy," Brock-Piekarski said. "I don't know if I want to be sitting out in my deer stand by myself anymore, hunting."
