TAYLORS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

At first glance, a Taylors shutterbug thought she had snapped a few shots of sun and moon close together in the twilight sky Sunday.

When Stephanie Davenport looked closer, she said something caught her eye.

“I originally thought it was the moon, but when I zoomed in on my pictured it clearly wasn't. It is round and looked to have lights on it,” Davenport wrote in a Facebook message to FOX Carolina.

She said she snapped the first few photos on Center Drive in Taylors and then snapped a few more on Highway 290.

Every time she zoomed in, the strange bright spots appeared in the image.

Davenport said she consulted someone who might have the answer: a family member who works for NASA.

According to Davenport, this was what he wrote back, "I think those dots are just pixels in your camera CCD that are over exposed. They are too orderly to be sun spots. Nothing to get excited about."

Still, she's not quite ready to accept that explanation.

“That doesn't make sense to me because the object was behind clouds in some pictures and behind tree branches in others and out in the open in others,” she said. “I have no idea what it could be or if it really is the moon.”

Could it be something otherworldly? That's one of many questions Davenport said have been running through her mind since Sunday evening.
