Last week several Kentucky residents reported seeing an obscure cylindrical object hover in the skies for more than 2 hours. Long-time amateur astronomer Allen Epling was one of those who saw the weird airborne object and he shot this amazing video of it.
Epling told reporters that he was at his home on October 16th, when one of his guests mentioned that there was a strange looking airplane in the sky. Epling was intrigued by the object and immediately reached for his binoculars and telescope.
Epling told CBS affiliate WYMT-TV that the object “looked like two fluorescent bulbs, side by side, parallel, shining very brightly. It would get so bright they would seem to merge, and you could see it very clearly with the naked eye. Then it would dim down almost invisible.”
He recorded this incredible footage of the UFO and posted it to YouTube. On the posting he explains that the object was stationary and only appears to be moving because his hand was unsteady as he shot the footage as he was trying to hold the camera whilst attempting to video it through the eyepiece of the telescope.
He said that he sighted the object in “clear, cloudless skies” with “no aircraft in sight.” He said he could not work out the altitude of the UFO however he believes that it was “definitely above airliner cruising altitude.”
Kentucky State Police admitted that they received several calls from people claiming to have seen a strange object hovering in the Pikeville skies. People in several other Kentucky towns also reported seeing something unusual in the sky.
So far no official explanation for the sighting has been given. The United States Department of Defense and the Kentucky Air National Guard told the Appalachian News-Express that they were not aware of any unidentified objects over Kentucky at the time that Epling recorded his video and the members of the public reported the sighting.
Epling has theorized that it may have been some sort of balloon (I wonder if Baumgartner is jumping from crazy heights in secret this time) but, he said, “if it’s a balloon, how could it maintain its structure at that altitude? It wasn’t anything I recognized. Definitely not an airplane, and I’ve never seen a helicopter that looked like that.”
Very spooky indeed!! What do you think the strange object is? Do you think it is an alien aircraft? Have you spotted crazy things in the skies that you believe are UFOs? Leave a comment and let us know!
