Whether it was a trick of the car lights, a drone or something not of this world, two men at a gas station in Peru had an encounter they are not likely forget.
In the video, the men are talking next to the gas pumps when a small, lighted presence approaches the station from the street behind the men.
The image looks like it could be a small child or animal.
The video was taken on Aug. 22.
After a while, the two men notice the figure. One of the men slowly walks toward it, and as if he is afraid or maybe is having a hard time seeing it clearly under the bright station lights.
The figure then takes flight, at which point the men run toward it.
