The picture below isn't necessary what these guys saw, the web site calls it 'file footage'. But the story is very interesting.

This is a credible account of what happens when astronomers see something that "shouldn't be there". There's no mention of any pictures being taken but it definitely wasn't swamp gas, Venus, a meteor, a comet, a supernova, an airplane, or a chinese latern. These guys were professional and knew that should be up there and what shouldn't.

Quote from the article:

"On the evening of 10-17-09 myself and four other club members were at our astronomy clubs’ observatory (35.8308 96.14518) for a clear night of observing. With many years of experience in observing under our belts we were needless to say quite qualified to identify most anything that we would see. Between approximately 6:40 – 7:00 P.M. one of the members noticed something off in the west and queried as to what it may happen to be.

First and foremost it was bright, more or less as bright as Jupiter, yet setting about ten to twelve degrees above the horizon, due west. At our first sighting most of us thought that it was nothing more than an airliner reflecting sunlight from the setting sun but that determination was tossed aside shortly there after. If it had been what we first thought it was it would’ve lost it’s size and brightness fairly quick as it shifted positions in relation to the sun while in flight.

But, it continued to maintain its position, did not move in any direction - vertically, horizontally. If by some chance it were a celestial body it would follow a gradual celestial track that all of us would have noticed in a few minutes. Again, it didn’t move, remained in one position, which eliminated the possibility of it being a celestial body that none of us were unlikely familiar with. That alone became puzzling since the obvious – Venus, Mercury – are now tracking in the morning eastern sky, not the evening western sky.

With that we continued to watch it as one of the guys used his 10x50 binoculars to get a better view. What was seen initially brought to mind that it may perhaps be a high altitude research balloon but the more we watched it and as it maintained its position that thought was tossed quickly also. From the beginning it remained in one position, never moved. Balloons, of any type, will not remain in one specific position be they weather balloons, high altitude research balloons or otherwise.

But as we watched it more closely it was very surprising as to the manner in which it morphed into various shapes and sizes. Its brightness would vary some but that was easily seen as being caused by the low-lying clouds onthe horizon . As we commonly call it – it was “sitting in the soup”. When they would move in front of it the objects brightness would dim some. Otherwise it would maintain its brightness. That was easily seen via binocular observations."

Very interesting, althought it could have been government technology. Either way, tomorrow the place will be infested with black helicopters, and the news will say it was just swamp gas... or a Russian missile.

I thought this was fascinating:

These astronomers thought about it being government also:


The speed that it moved was without question way beyond anything that we have knowledge of or is publicly known to be in our military. At the rate it flew away would make a SR-71 Blackbird look very old and slow. Could it have possibly been a new experimental aircraft? Possibly yes but if so what was something such as that doing in Oklahoma? Most generally new experimental, top-secret aircraft of that type are being tested at either Edwards AFB or Area 51, not Oklahoma. In a nutshell, we will never know.


It's good to know that astronomers are feeling comfortable enough to post their experiences with UFO's. This is, I suspect, a major problem why UFO sightings never get enough credibility. There is a big fear of ridicule in the professional fields. It's like asking a physics professor what he or she thinks about God. They usually answer with some sort of professional reply since anything else may prove to be embarrassing among their colleges.
