Virgie, Kentucky - 10-16-12

 

My neighbor’s small daughter noticed a very bright star that shown in the middle of the day, that didn’t move, and brought it to my attention. The sky was clear, free of clouds, and blue. Visibility was unlimited. The temperature was in the upper 60s.

 

I had 4 visitors at the time and they all called to me to come out and look up at something strange. I got binoculars and was stunned to see a bright object that looked cylindrical, with two bright white fluorescent tubes on its sides, hanging very high in the sky.

 

I have an 8" Meade SCT telescope and observed it at about 150 power and it was extremely clear, unmoving, or barely moving, hanging very high in the atmosphere. It was so high, it didn’t appear to have shape except through binoculars.

 

It moved ever so slightly that I used the telescopes controls to keep it centered, but it never moved more than 10 degrees from the original position in an hour and a half.

 

I used my Canon digital camera and took about 50 photos of the object through the telescope and then shot some video also. It oscillated between dim to very bright, (sun like), on a frequency that varied but was of about 30 seconds.

 

If it was a balloon it would have drifted with the prevailing winds, if it was a satellite, it would have moved west to east in its orbit, and been out of sight in about 10 minutes, if it was a plane it could not stay up without moving that long. A helicopter would have run out of gas and could not have hovered that long.

 

None of those things fit this description. It appeared to be cylindrical in shape, semitransparent, and had two very bright lines of light, vertically on its outside edges. Being an amateur astronomer, I know my planets and heavenly bodies and it was none of those.

 

After about 2 hours of observing it through my telescope I came in to post my photos on Facebook and during that time my wife came in and said it had disappeared.

 

I am experienced with taking pictures through my telescope and I know about reflections, planets looking like UFOs and such. This wasn’t even close to any of those events, and I have 5 other witnesses to prove it. They all saw it through my telescope and observed it for over an hour.

    well it's not like the media to come out with a false story to cover something up now is it? If you actually read the story there is no reference to what toy it is, where to get it, or even how it works. (Strange). Also... if you look into it you will find that these UFO Solar Tubes that they are referring to, are made of black garbage bags. The way that they work is by the sunlight hitting the "black" plastic and causing the air molecules inside it to lose density, thus making the tube become lighter than air. It's pretty basic science. It's also basic fact that the higher into the sky you go the more turbulance and wind. If this "clear" tube was somehow able to heat the molecules in the bag (impossible), it still wouldn't have been able to stay still in the air. It would be waving back and forth like a kite no matter what altitude it is at. And if this thing was seen from many different locations it wouldn't look the same from each spot. Light would reflect through it differently. If the media thinks it needs to explain a kids toy floating in the air then you have to look behind what they are telling you. There's a reason they made the report.
