eyewitnesses in different areas of eastern Kentucky reported seeing a
strange, cylindrical UFO hover for two hours in clear skies last week,
but an amateur astronomer's striking video and images of the object are
now coming to light.
Allen Epling was at home on Oct. 16, when one of his visitors said
there was a strange airplane in the sky, reports the Appalachian News-Express.
was just a very bright daylight star that was getting brighter, then
getting dimmer, then getting brighter again," Epling said.
to CBS affiliate WYMT-TV, Epling, pictured at right, said 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."
Epling's YouTube posting of his UFO video he wrote: "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."
added that his sighting "was with clear, cloudless skies, no aircraft
in sight, altitude unknown but definitely above airliner cruising
