|UFOs Over Lexington? Lexington, KY (April 29, 2011)|
Driving down Man-O-War a week ago today (April 29), my wife and I noticed several white blurs in the sky (the ones in the top half of the picture...not the lights at the bottom). Three are in the picture above, but there were others. Although the three pictured here all seemed to be going the same direction, others seemed to have random trajectories. Explaining a few as jet trails would have been simple, but 5 or 6?
Apparently, Kentucky is a hotbed for UFO activity. Did I have a near encounter? Perhaps. Could it have been a meteor breaking up? Don't know. Here is a transcript of my report to the Mutual UFO Network:
In my car driving on Man-O-War in Lexington (toward US68 from US27), my wife and I noticed a few white streaks in the sky. Thinking at first they were jet trails, I began to be more curious when I noticed about 5 or 6 in different parts of the sky ... travelling at different trajectories. I also considered shooting stars or a meteor shower, but there don't appear to be any other reports (the Lyrids were the week before).
So, I couldn't explain it. I did manage to snap a picture of 3 of them. I lost sight of the objects when I went into Orange Leaf for some frozen yogurt and I didn't regain sight of them when I came back out.
