Seen here looking nothing like the alien spacecraft that comes to beam me up for my annual enema, the UFO spotted by amateur Kentucky astronomer Allen Epling is seen hovering in the sky. I think it might just be a plastic bag.
According 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."
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 posted the video that Epling shot after the jump, but, just like most UFO footage, it looks like it was filmed by somebody having a seizure. Still, what WAS that thing? Let the speculation begin! *looking at watch* And time's up, let the speculation end. "You're not even wearing a watch." Yeah? Well I don't need a watch to know it's TIME TO CARE ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE. Don't act like you have an attention span.
Hit the jump for the shaky-ass video.
Thanks to Christina, who knows there are aliens out there, this just isn't them.
