The light spots are insects reflecting in the spotlight of the cam. The "creature" looks like an impala.


The reason for this previously unexplained phenomena is as clean as a whistle now after scientists found out that insects flying past a spot light creates the illusion of a light comparing to that of "eyes" shing in the dark.

No aliens, no flying saucers, no KNPSM running around with a Phosphor underpants. :D

The thought of aliens as the light spots never crossed my mind.I know some were animal eyes.I'd see the spot & watch,if it was an animal then it would appear in the next frame.I just wondered what other types of animals they might be.The one set of the light higher up acrossed the watering hole I wondered if it was a giraffe.I do know that there are many animals that their eyes shine like that in the dark when light hits.Your answer was made sense to me,thanks

Here in the United States we have an insect called the "lighting bug" also called "fire fly" I was wondering if there was anything like that there.

Yep, we have them ... If I remember correctly, the males have wings and the females have none. Males just fly around looking for flickering lights while flickering away as well..

Is that a wallowing buff impersonating a huge lump of mud on the other side of the WH (left top)?
