On Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012, reports of unidentified objects sighted over Tennessee, Virginia, and Kentucky began surfacing on the Web, and on Thursday, Oct. 25, an unidentified cylindrical object dropped into the belching mouth of the Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City.
Allen Epling, an amateur astronomer in Pike County, Kentucky, captured the mysterious cylindrical object on video through a high-powered astronomical telescope. He describes the object in the sky as cylindrical with two white tubes on both sides and semi-transparent. He says the object, which could be seen against a clear afternoon sky with no cloud cover, hovered over the same area for more than two hours.
Epling, who estimates it was at an altitude of at least 100,000 ft. – definitely above airliner cruising altitude, says, “I don’t understand how it could stay up there in one place. There was no sign of propellers or any kind of proportion system. No gas is coming out.”
“It wasn’t anything I recognized. Definitely not an airplane, and I’ve never seen a helicopter that looked like that. It looked like two fluorescent bulbs, side by side, parallel, shining very brightly. It would get so bright, they would seem to merge, and you could see it very clearly with the naked eye. Then it would dim down almost invisible. It was just a very bright daylight star that was getting brighter, then getting dimmer, then getting brighter again.”
The object disappeared while Epling was uploading photos of it to Facebook. His wife, who saw it disappear, says, “It began to drift, appeared to be enveloped by something and was gone.”
The story continues on Thursday, Oct. 25 at Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City, when a television camera that remains focused on the Popocatepetl volcano caught a cylindrical object falling into the volcano, an object identical to the one seen in the skies over the eastern US about a week earlier. A Televisa camera that continuously records Popo’s activity captured the moment when an enormous mysterious bright, cylindrical-shaped object fell into the belching throat of Popocatepetl at a speed greater than that of an airplane. The object is estimated by experts to be a mile long and 200 meters wide.
Margarita Rosado, an astronomer at UNAM, a member of International Astronomical Union, says, “Imagine a cylinder of a mile long and 200 meters wide, or two streets wide and a mile long in an area where there is, apart from the Earth’s atmosphere, all these exhalations, hot gases, and everything.”
Rosado says the object was neither “incandescent material” released by the volcano and returned in free-fall nor a meteorite, as the object has a clean line and bright edges displaying different colors.
