ROCKLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — A Rockland man uploaded a video on YouTube of, what he calls, an unidentified flying object (UFO), and it’s causing a lot of local chatter.

Ty Pendleton took the video on June 14 around 9 p.m. at his home in Rockland. Three lights in the sky caught his attention, so he decided to take a video of it. At first, Pendleton said he thought it was an airplane, but didn’t hear any sound. As seen in the video, the three lights move in unison.

Pendleton said he believes those three lights are a UFO. “Nobody can seem to explain what the image is. Nobody can explain it, so that’s one reason why I definitely think it’s a UFO,” he said.

While astronomers are fascinated with the idea of UFOs and life on other planets, a director at UMaine’s Astronomy Center is a bit skeptical about the video.

“I think it’s probably not an alien spacecraft that’s come to visit us, but there could be any number of explanations, just the weather here on earth can get kinda crazy, so it could be any number of things and we definitely can’t make the leap to ‘Oh, it must be aliens,'” said Scott Mitchell, the Center’s director.
