A Georgetown resident was star gazing in the backyard when they saw a planet... or satellite... or... UFO? Luckily, they submitted a report to MUFON about it. The UFO appeared to emit lights and hover. However, it also traveled - just very slowly. Here's a long-exposure photograph of the event:
So...last night around 11:30pm, I was doing some suburban stargazing in my backyard when I noticed an abnormally bright object which I thought to be a planet at the time. I looked with binoculars and noticed that it was emitting lights. I proceeded to take some photos with my camera and tripod. Now, I know that streaking of lights can happen when you move during a long exposure, but this is sort of odd. I've simply never seen anything in the sky that gave off so many colors of lights. I eventually got S**** and A******* to take a look at it maybe 10 to 15 minutes later, and it had moved...but barely (maybe a fist length with arm extended). So, after a teeny bit of research, I found out that satellites don't usually have lights other than the international space station (not visible from the ground) plus there weren't any abnormally bright satellites in the area at the time anyways. So, it must have been an aircraft, but moving really really slow and giving off literally rainbows of flashing lights. Odd. Also strange that the streaking of lights does not seem to affect the stars in some of the photos.
Did you this UFO as well? Report your sighting!
