Some intresting footage of a triangle shape hovering in the sky. The object was in the air and recorded for about 45 minutes. As the light came up it could no longer be seen.



A UFO appeared over Lincoln, Nebraska on ABC affiliate KLKN’s towercam on the morning of Wednesday, September 4.

The station’s morning meteorologist Sean McMullen noticed the object just before 6:00 a.m. He explains, “I have never seen anything like this before. I even say that several times while I’m on air describing the object, because I want to let people know even I don’t know what this is, so I can’t exactly tell you what it is.” The flashing triangle or teardrop-shaped object in the video appears to hover motionless in the sky. According to McMullen, the UFO was visible for about 45 minutes, but disappeared from view when the sun rose. McMullen says the object looked almost like a weather balloon, but points out that weather balloons are not equipped with flashing lights.

Begining of 2nd vid. "We have absolutely NO idea what it was, but its NOT a spaceship. We just KNOW that" End of 2nd vid the broadcaster says some source can "guarantee that extraterrestrials do not exist". I wonder how that's accomplished exactly. Standard media treatment of the topic. Must be they misplaced the x-files theme sound bite they normally use to further trivialize any and all sightings reported.

"Scintillation". Usually news camera men aren't that bored or ignorant to point their cameras at stars and zoooom all the way in. But "changing colors", "low on the horizon", "fixed" descriptions all point in that direction.

Take your pick...

Haha. So the professor at the physic department can "guarantee that extraterrestrials do not exist."??? :0

Wonder if anyone's gonna lose their job over that one? Why not just have a once a week ufo segment on the locals?
Prob boost ratings.

Right, a guarantee, that's rich. Guess that settles it . . .

Don't see enough of these on nightly news, if you ask me. . . .

Thanks,

Guessing this is the same cam by looking at the buildings in day and night. With the zoom, etc it might be aligned with that tall building on the right with the mast on top.

May be that had something to do with this.

I think it's Sirius and the triangular shape is only a distortion resulting from it out of focus in the camera.

It scintillates VERY much like a star. (Sirius is a prime candidate for putting on quite a light-show deep on the horizon, every hobby astronomer will agree with me). I also just checked in Stellarium and Sirius is currently S very low on the horizon in Lincoln, Nebraska shortly before sun-rise. I'd say 99% it's Sirius, and 98% that those meteorologists are dumb fools since as meteorologists they should be at least SOMEWHAT familiar with stars or what usually goes on in the Sky.

Only because it APPEARED as a triangle in the cam doesn't mean it had that actual shape. Again, I am very, very convinced it is Sirius.

In the footage (there is a better quality footage on YT somewhere) there is also a moment where they zoom out and then the object shrinks and loses its triangle shape, an indication that the triangle is only caused by their camera.

Very interesting. Multiple witnesses, decent footage, reliable source. My kind of post.

Guess I'll skip the star research phase since you did it. Sounds pretty logical and reasonable.

Just a little piece of science here. The Earth rotates that means, that nothing remains "motionless" in the sky unless it is in geo stationary orbit or it's inside our atmosphere and hovering. If this object was indeed "motionless" and that has yet to be fully confirmed, then it cannot be a star.

I love the part where the TALKING HEADress says

"I just spoke with Prrrrofessor Timothy Gay from UNL physics department, he says he can guarantee that EXTRATERRESTRIALS DO NOT EXIST..."

sorry her blub not mine, but with added emphasis, what an idiot parrot!

But he can guarantee this how? LOL

Man made space junk in Low Earth Orbit is my bet.


Between the launch of Sputnik on 4 October 1957 and 1 January 2008, approximately 4600 launches have placed some 6000 satellites into orbit, of which about 400 are travelling beyond geostationary orbit or on interplanetary trajectories.

Today, it is estimated that only 800 satellites are operational - roughly 45 percent of these are both in LEO and GEO.
www.messagetoeagle.com...

Thats 45% of only the operational objects in LEO Low Earth Orbit. No telling how many of those 5400 objects ( the ones in LEO and GEO not traveling out away from Earth) there are that have been floating dead for years.

This page has many artists impressions of Earth and all the junk in orbit. I won't post them but they are interesting - go take a look.

Remember, what goes up must come down. The flashing to me appears to be due to the object tumbling while light is reflecting off it at various angles. It could be anything. There is so much of this crap up there and most of it is not even in operation or under any ground based control.

where is it said to be motionless? I see it appeared to be motionless yet not actually determined to be.

it was observed for 45 min and then disappearing when the sun began to light up the sky.


Sound like a star to me.

Was thinking the same. The short report really didn't go into much detail nor do we have much time length of video.

Usually the case when its something known and used for ratings or such.


If something was really unidentified and glowing in the sky as such any real reporter or researcher would do all the debunking for viewers to see, show that no star can be there at that time using easy software, many other factors would be discounted for all to see and then it could be a UFO.

This crap like the one from Denver last year where they had a specialist at identifying aircraft come on after some Joe Blow said he was capturing UFOs dancing above the skies in Denver is simple ratings grabs.

So true. Easy to explain the action by the station - the news in no longer actual news reporting. It's a reality show to sell commercial time.

If it was the camera as you say, then aiming it skywards when stars or planets like jupiter are visible, wouldn't that produce the same "artifact" as you are saying?

I think these guys that do nothing except aim that camera skyward, manually or remotely, would notice bright stars producing a triangular artifact before this particular incident..

They were all adamant about having never seen anything like this, so it should be safe to say it was definitely not just some camera lens artifact..

Yes undoubtedly you are correct. People forget Stars change position as the Earth rotates, as the Earth tilts as it orbits the Sun etc etc, we are never in the same position in space, We constantly move thru Space, with the Solar system, etc

Bright Stars always scintillate in the lower sky, its all to do with the thickness of the atmosphere, light refraction etc. It moved, because the Earth is revolving.

I cant believe how dumb those "Scientists??" are, astronomy 101.

I recall a thread, last year?, from a member who had captured a "UFO" changing colours etc, that he was convinced they were communicating to him or something...anyway posted his clip...almost identical to this one, bright Star low in the sky, moves and dissappears near Sunrise etc etc......Sirius was the obvious conclusion.

Its an easy mistake to make, get up a 3.00am in the morning you will see lots of different stars, compared to what you would at 10.00pm going to bed,,....welcome to the Universe.
