Unlike the strange UFO-02 Detector gadget, amateur astronomer Allen Epling used a regular telescope to photograph a bizarre UFO from his Virgie, Kentucky home. According to Allen, he “was just one of thousands who 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.” You can definitely add this story to the UFO mysteries list.

Observed through a Mead 8″ SCT astronomical telescope the unidentified object did not drift more than 10 degrees in any direction and was sighted approximately 60 degrees above the horizon. On Epling’s YouTube posting of the UFO video he explained the movement of the craft: ‘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.’
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. 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.
