Two weeks ago a guy just across the mountain in Virgie, KY captured footage of the object seen below.  The object was spotted here in Letcher County in Jenkins, as well as Elkhorn City and South Williamson in Pike County, and in parts of Virginia and Tennessee.

The footage was shot by Allen Epling with what I'm fairly certain is the most powerful telescope in Virgie.  An amateur astronomer, Epling and his wife were enjoying an evening with friends when one of the visiting children came and told him there was a funny looking airplane in the sky.  Minutes later Epling had set a camera to recording through the viewfinder of his telescope.  He uploaded the footage, shown below, to YouTube and the next day he began enjoying his 15 minutes on all the popular UFO-related websites.  
Witnesses reported seeing the object hovering in the sky for over 2 hours.  Epling described it as looking 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."  One witness described viewing it thru binoculars as starting out as a sphere, morphing into the elongated shape in the pictures, then back in to a sphere before disappearing. 

Police officials said they received a handful of calls about the object but were unable to locate it themselves.  Officials with the U..S. Department of Defense and Kentucky Air National Guard say they had no aircraft in the sky at the time.  

Some believers are calling the it a plasma UFO.  Others insist it is the result of test performed by everyone from the Illuminati and the New World Order to the Nephelim and the Anunnaki.  Skeptics theorize that the sightings could be the result of a highly classified test, something like NASA’s Tether Incident, in which a mile long cable ran from satellites to a space shuttle.  When it was activated, a charge ran along the tether, and creating a magnetic field that interacted with the Earth’s magnetic field.  When the cable broke and it floated away with the satellites, several UFO sightings were reported as witnesses mistook the strange light show for alien transportation.
