I've been meaning to post this for a while.



While I am posting this in the UFO forums, I'm skeptical it is anything "alien".

This sighting occurred on March 10, 2012 at approximately 01:00 am in rural Southern Kentucky.

A friend of mine who lives in a rural area had woken up and decided to step out side. He sighted something strange in the sky and went to get his camera. This guy is an amateur photographer and always has his camera nearby. The following account took place over an approximately 10 minute period.

He observed multiple strange lights in the sky. At first he assumed they were planes, but there was no noise. In the country, you can hear planes and commercial jets flying at even high altitudes due to the lack of other noise. The fact he couldn't hear anything is strange for this area. He continued to watch it, and over the course of a few minutes, he noticed it was moving closer. It dropped altitude then shot upwards. As it came up, a smoke trail appeared and it began to drop out of the sky. In the photos, you'll see it appears to be on fire. He continued to photograph it as it dropped to the Earth, landing what he estimated as only miles from his home. While falling, other identical objects appeared. He continued snapping photos until the first object fell out of sight. When it disappeared, the other objects in the sky vanished.

He was genuinely freaked out over the incident. At 06:00 am, he gave me a call and emailed me these photos.

Since then, I've scoured local, regional, national news for anything. I've also checked FFA reports for any type of aircraft accidents and found nothing. The only other possibility I could come up with was space junk re-entering the atmosphere. I checked the NASA re-entry schedule and found two satellites were supposed to come down that night, but neither matched the shape or this object. Considering the account given, falling debris is entirely out of the question in my opinion.

You can get a pretty clear silhouette of the object, and it doesn't match anything I could find online. In the pictures, you'll notice a smoke plume appears in some and not others.

I've known this guy for most of my life. He's level headed, devout Christian and deals in real estate. ...never known this guy to ever mention UFO's or anything of the like. This had him scared. Take a look a the photos. All images are original, unedited, except whatever compression there is on photobucket.

Very interesting. I can't imagine what it is but it looks a little like something on fire that is drifting away. I guess you'd have to have been there to notice speed, movement, drift and stuff like that. Really good find though!

Perhaps he should investigate the area?

Neat pictures. Looks like a flare on a parachute or maybe a missle. He live near any military bases?

I'd have to contact the witness to get a description for each photo.

From my understanding, he observed the object in the sky, and snapped pictures with a tri-pod mounted Sony Alpha 390 as it fell from the sky and out of sight.

I'll link him the thread and try to get a better description for the photos.

Fort Campbell is approximately 80 miles away.

Fort Knox is approximately 70 miles away.

I've done an enhancement for each with the date/time, sort in order:

















But there are some missing shots (n°9056, 9057, 9059, 9060, 9061, 9062, 9064, 9065, 9066 and 9067), maybe nothing can be seen on these?

Very interesting thanks for sharing.

I would agree it doesn't look alien, from what I know aliens don't use any propulsion system that would leave a trail.

That's not an alien tail. That is an effect you get when you move the camera around. Happens to me plenty of times when taking pictures of stars. Could be falling meteor.

That looks like a sperm.

Kind of funny but had to point it out.

Really, then why is it not happening to all the stars in his photo's? or was just one part of his lens moving?

I would agree this does not seem alien, but that is just a gut feeling, it is certainly strange and I have no real idea what it might be.

However, to the OP, you said the photo's were the originals but they are not, they have been reduced in size, probably because the originals would be very large and take considerable tie to upload, however it would be better if we could get teh pics without any reduction on them

The one with the squiggle trail seems like it could be the most prominent to me, the others it was rather hard to tell as it seems as if my focus was on the stores or that thing in the tree which I thought could be a lamp (I know some hate that Chinese lantern excuse but in a way I kind of was thinking that or something for this one :| ).

The camera is tri-pod mounted. Shutter speed was set at 1/4000 sec.

Meteors do not sit in the sky for minutes a a time, nor do they have irregular flight paths changing course and altitude. Only intelligently controlled objects move in this fashion.

Once again, the images are unedited except for Photobucket compression. Unless someone host webspace to upload them, I can't upload 3 meg images.

Smoke trail did not appear until object fell from the sky, and it does appear to be on fire. The other identical objects in the sky were not.

EXIF says 4 sec. for pictures n°70, 69, 63 and 58 and 3.2 sec for pictures n°68, 64, 55 and 54:

Thanks for posting that ElevenAugust. When I read 1/4000 sec, I immediately called BS. No way you are taking any shots that fast at night.

Blowing up images 4 and 5, the stars have the same "squiggle" effect. It was definitely camera movement over the 3 or 4 secs. For a more crisp image, you really need to use a remote (with mirror locked up) or at least a self timer so you push the shutter, it waits a couple secs, then takes the shot.

And taken at night. That's hard to believe.
