Several 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 astronomerís striking video and images of the object are now coming to light.

Astronomer 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.

"It was just a very bright daylight star that was getting brighter, then getting dimmer, then getting brighter again," Epling said.

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 Eplingís 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."

Kentucky State Police told the Appalachian News-Express that there were five calls about the object in Pikeville, which was also seen from other Kentucky towns.

The United States Department of Defense and Kentucky Air National Guard told the News-Express they werenít aware of any unidentified objects over Kentucky during the time of the sightings. And a local Pikeville-Pike County Regional Airport spokesman said he didnít know of anything unusual in the sky.

Epling speculates that the object might have been some kind of balloon, but "if itís a balloon, how could it maintain its structure at that altitude? It wasnít anything I recognized. Definitely not an airplane, and Iíve never seen a helicopter that looked like that."
