Reported: 1/24/2009 10:31:16 PM 22:31
Posted: 3/19/2009
Location: Bruin, KY
Shape: Disk
Duration:~15'
Bright varying color / intensity (blue-white) ; disc-like "glob" - erratic movements.

Possible UFO sighting CONDITIONS Approximately 10:17pm until approximately 10:35pm; Saturday, January 24, 2009.

Latitude 38o 1979’N Longitude 83o 0188’W.

Clear sky. Remote area, no light interference. General location; W. of Little Dipper. Estimated position eleven o’clock E. NE.

Planes use general air space frequently. Air traffic regular; several passenger jets traversing simultaneously. Lights clearly visible at night. Following consistent flight paths. Planes visible by day. Occasional vapor trails; numerous -6 - 8 simultaneously with proper atmospheric conditions. Estimated altitude ~ 18,000 to ~ 20,000 ft.

Small plane traffic less regular, mostly “puddle jumper” connecting flights - 2,000 - 5,000ft. Also regular.

Passenger jets always audible, ~ 10 seconds after visible contact of plane’s sighting.

Small planes audible propulsion closely associated with position.

Typical routine. Stepped out on patio, have a “smoke” and “night cap” before bed. Always observe night sky; sometimes counting numbers of lights of jet traffic or watching for “falling” stars. Observe Saturn disappearing into Eastern horizon.

Venus traveling ~ 1 o’clock ~ South.

Suddenly appeared a twinkling star-like image. Blue-white- seemed changing.

I observed in awe as it’s position shifted erratically. Quickly moving vertically; wavering; returning close to original position. Rapid movement vertical and horizontal. Best analogy would emulate a burning cigarette in darkness; moving erratically-within limited space. Vanished! Immediately reappeared 10 o’clock E. Repeating erratic movements.

Awakened companion to bring her glasses, and witness what I was seeing. Validated erratic movements and varying light intensities.

Called father to observe also; 11 miles S. No answer. Left message of object’s position; - he’s retired Air Force. Probably thinks I was “seeing things” …. I was! Indescribable movements. Varying light intensities.

Previously skeptical; now astounded by what I and my companion witnessed.
