Several people in Kentucky, US, reportedly witnessed an unearthly object which they believed to be an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) hovering in the sky for more than two hours.
According to reports, amateur astronomer Allen Epling claimed to have seen a strange object at a height of over 100,000 feet on Oct 16, when his visitor's granddaughter hollered the sightings of a bizarre object in the sky. Epling observed the twin cigar shaped mysterious object through a Meade 8" SCT astronomical telescope, reported Daily Mail.
"It was just a very bright daylight star that was getting brighter, then getting dimmer, then getting brighter again," Epling said as quoted by Appalachian News Express.
According to the paper, many people in the same area had reported the sightings on the same day. Kentucky State Police Trooper Shaun Little reportedly said that he had received at least five phone calls regarding the sightings of the unearthly object.
"We received several calls about it, but our trooper was unable to locate any object in the sky," said Shaun Little.
Epling was sure that the sighted object was neither a craft nor a balloon. "I'll be honest, I've never seen anything like it and I've struggled to come up with a good explanation for what it may have been," he said according to Appalachian News Express.
"I don't understand how it could stay up there in one place. There was no sign of propellers or any kind of proportion system. No gas is coming out," added Epling. He also told several reporters that the object he sighted hovered at the same place for a long time.
In the UFO video clip uploaded on YouTube on Oct 19, Epling said, "I want to emphasize that the object is NOT moving. The picture is unsteady because I had to hold the camera in hand while trying to video it through the eyepiece of the telescope."
He further added, "Sighting was with clear, blue, cloudless skies, no aircraft in sight, altitude unknown but definitely above airliner cruising altitude. The object hovered roughly in the same location for over 2 hours, not drifting more than 10 degrees in any direction. Was sighted approximately 60 degrees above the horizon. Image in video was shot with about 150 power magnification."
According to United States Department of Defense and Kentucky Air National Guard, no objects or crafts had been flying in that particular area when the sightings were reported, said Huffington Post.
