Astronomer Allen Epling films strange cigar-shaped UFO type object in sky above Kentucky

TO UFO and non-UFO enthusiasts alike it was something very strange in the sky.

The mystery cylinder-like glowing object has left thousands of people in Pike County, Kentucky, wondering what was flying over their heads for more than two hours in clear skies.
Taking video and pictures of the unusual craft, amateur astronomer Allen Epling saw the cigar-shaped craft across three states and the part-time star-gazer estimated the UFO to be operating at over 100,000 feet - over twice the height a commercial jet flies.
The craft has excited the UFO community nationwide, with some speculating that the craft is in fact an alien spaceship from the Ashtar Galactic Command, Mail Online reported.

Jose Ignacio Contreras, who operates the blog, Ashtar Command Crew, commented that Epling's video shows "what appears to be two large Lightships recorded in clear skies during day light hours."
Epling was at home in Virgie on October 16 when a visitor's granddaughter said there was a strange airplane in the sky, the Appalachian News-Express reported.
"It was just a very bright daylight star that was getting brighter, then getting dimmer, then getting brighter again," Epling said.
According to WYMT-TV, Epling 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."
On 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."
He added that his sighting "was with clear, cloudless skies, no aircraft in sight, altitude unknown but definitely above airliner cruising altitude."
"I've wanted to see a UFO all my life," he said. "I wasn’t scared, I was fascinated, especially to see something out of the ordinary."
Police in the area reported that they received calls about the object but they were unable to find the craft.
"We received several calls about it, but our trooper was unable to locate any object in the sky,' Kentucky State Police Trooper Shaun Little told the Appalachian News Express.
Local airports from Pine County also said that they do not have any records of aicraft flying over their airspace during the hours that Epling videoed and photographed the UFO.

You'll have to forgive my ignorance because I haven't brushed up on the subject for years, but is it not theorized in string theory that although they are supposed to be incredibly rare, there should to be strings out there large enough to see?

That's the first thing I thought of when I saw that image. Well... I didn't THINK so much as report on the first image that spontaniously arose to mind.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

These types of UFO's (i.e. "cigar"/"tube") have actually been spotted numerous times.

I'm not so sure they are extraterrestrial because all they do is float around and disappear and they've been doing this for many years...evidence of UFO sightings go back centuries. But they never land in any cities or towns, they never make any type of contact or communication with earth - except for floating around, defying the laws of physics and then disappearing.

Myself personally, I believe these to be either government technology or extradimensional entities moreso than extraterrestrial.

I've seen a UFO! :bigblush:

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

Ratio, I think the further we investigate the solar system, and I have great hope for the Curiousity rover to discover this data, I think we will soon come to accept that alien life has been here all along.

By this I mean that it is entirely possible that certain life forms on this planet did not originate here but were a product of panspermia, intentional or not.

If we were to find samples of insect-like fossil in the stratum of Mars or existing fungus at the bottom of the deepest chasms there, where there could be much more heat and moisture, it would not shock me in the least. Other people may lose their crap, mind you....

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that is just another kind of balloon. Probably similar to this one:

So, not E.T.

However, this balloon could be used to spy on the people below. A lot more affordable than satellites.

Aliens aren't that hard to believe in conceptually. Prankster aliens that hover in the sky for a few minutes and take off are. Real aliens that have the tech to make it to earth wouldn't need to do that. Plus blurry videos with suspenseful music are a sign of BS.
