An unidentified flying object was reportedly seen in several areas
of Pike County on Tuesday, but officials have no information as to
what the object may have been.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Shaun Little told the News-Express
that KSP Post 9 in Pikeville received five calls on Tuesday
reporting the object in the sky. The object was visible from
several areas, including the South Williamson area and Elkhorn City
in Pike County, as well as Jenkins in Letcher County. It was also
spotted and photographed in Virgie.

Virgie resident Allen Epling said he was home with his wife and
several friends Tuesday afternoon when the granddaughter of one of
their visitors said there was a “strange airplane” in the sky.

Epling, his wife and their guest went outside and watched as the
object hovered in the sky for more than two hours, Epling said.

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

Epling described the object in the sky as cylindrical with two
white tubes on both sides and semi-transparent. He said it could be
seen against a clear afternoon sky with no cloud cover.

Police responded to calls reporting the object in the sky, but were
unable to gather any information.

“We received several calls about it, but our trooper was unable to
locate any object in the sky,” Little said.

Officials with the United States Department of Defense in
Washington, D.C., and the Kentucky Air National Guard told the
News-Express the agencies had no information on unidentified
objects in the sky over Eastern Kentucky on Tuesday.

Pike County Emergency Management Director Doug Tackett said he
received calls about the object but emergency management did not
respond to the event in any capacity.

A representative at the Pikeville-Pike County Regional Airport said
he was expecting a plane to land at the airport around the time the
unidentified object was spotted in the sky. He added, however, that
he was unaware of any objects in the sky other than the plane,
which he said was approaching the airport from a different
direction than the direction in which the object was spotted.

The sighting of the alleged UFO sparked speculation as to what the
object may have been. Epling said he is sure the object was not a
balloon, a helicopter, an airplane or a satellite. An amateur
astronomer, Epling, who photographed the object through a
high-powered astronomical telescope, said he has never seen
anything like the object.

“I’ll be honest, I’ve never seen anything like it and I’ve
struggled to come up with a good explanation for what it may have
been,” he said.

Epling said his wife told him the object disappeared while he was
inside his home uploading photos of the object to Facebook. She
said it began to drift, appeared to be enveloped by something and
was gone.

The event was an exciting one for Epling.

“I’ve wanted to see a UFO all my life,” he said. “I wasn’t scared,
I was fascinated, especially to see something out of the ordinary.”

UFO sighted over Virgie, KY on 10/16/2012. Video taken by Allen Epling through a Meade 8" SCT astronomical telescope. 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.

only problem with that argument is there is no movement of the lines that would be the rotars..... you'd see vibration

Near the end of the video it seems to have some sort of blur appear where you would imagine the blades to be on the left side of the object, that's what caught my eye and made me think helicopter

Its clearly real aliens (different race to the ones cruising round in the triangular ship) using some sort of camouflage technology. Maybe this is where we got the camera trickery that makes stuff appear transparent.
