Anomalous Trail Cam Capture (PHOTO) at Laurel Mountain, Somerset County, PA

The following trail cam photo was forwarded to our team by Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research investigator Thomas Carroll. What do you think this is? (Photo included).


"I hunt about 3 miles west of Jennerstown, Pennsylvania at the base of Laurel Mountain. I recently put up my trail camera beside my ladder stand. I caught this weird blurry image. No other pictures were taken around this time. I have been hunting this spot for the past 6 years. Last year, while archery hunting here one morning, I saw a bright blue flash of light that seemed to come from ground level off to my right. After seeing the picture I decided to go investigate. I did not notice any strange foot prints. But we have had some pretty heavy rain lately that most likely eroded away any footprints." Thomas Carroll

NOTE: These trail cam images tend to pixilate when zoomed in. I adjusted the light a bit. I have seen 'light bars' on other cam images before, but don't know for what reason. Is it caused by low light, frequency or possibly movement? Was the subject manifesting, or attempting to cloak? What are your thoughts? Lon

This comment from Stan Gordon:

"Hi Lon,

Thanks for sending over the trail cam photo to look at. It is interesting and hopefully a technical analysis will be conducted on the picture to determine the possible source of the luminous image. As you are aware, in some cases there are technical reasons that can explain some of the oddities recorded. There are other pictures and videos that have been taken in the past with trail cams, security cameras, and other photographic gear that I have seen and are very interesting.

I am interested in this image since it was taken in the general area where various anomalies have been reported for years as well as in recent weeks. I have spent years investigating UFOs,  as well as Bigfoot and cryptid incidents around the Chestnut Ridge and Laurel Ridge areas. I mentioned this in my recent "Creepy Cryptids" book.

In recent years I am receiving more reports from this area of Pennsylvania (and other areas) of encounters with mini-UFOs, those generally small spheres of light that are low to the ground and at times approach very close to witnesses even in daylight. During the major UFO and Bigfoot wave of 1973, quite a bit of strange activity took place around these ridges. One of the anomalies reported in conjunction with Bigfoot activity at the time was a luminous tubular or flare shaped object low to the ground that is similar to what is in this picture.

There has been a lot of strange activity being reported in the ridge areas even in recent months and weeks." Stan Gordon
