Photographer and filmmaker James Cawley was well aware of the recent interest in UFOs as he watched two ovular-shaped objects fly quickly through the screen of his DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone while filming the sunset in the Moab area of Utah. The objects were obvious enough that Cawley immediately turned after viewing the second one.

With this month’s release of the U.S. government’s highly anticipated report on Unidentified Flying Objects, the buzz surrounding UFOs is at an all-time high. While the initial findings in the report don’t say these unexplained sightings are from an extraterrestrial origin, the government hasn’t ruled the possibility out either.

“The most obvious assumption would be that these were bugs or birds,” Cawley told PetaPixel. “I’ve seen many of them flying backlit like this over the years. What made me question these objects was the speed. Since I had a Tiffen 1/8th Neutral Density filter on, the shutter speed of the video is 1/60th of a second and my drone was less than 200 feet above me when I saw these pass. I turned to watch them fly over the horizon behind me and they glinted like metal from the low sun.”
