Location: Pendleton, KY
Shape: Sphere
Duration:
It is now 21:00 and the event is still going on. I thought the object was a very bright star. I got my binoculars and it is a sphere shaped object, with blue and red lights moving around it. Sometimes it looks like the object is turning over and over like it is having problems. Then the lights will come shooting out from it so very very bright. There seems to be an unusual amount of regular airplanes flying by and around it. It is in the path we always see planes coming from Cincinnati to Louisville. But I have never seen anything like this. It is hovering and not moving. It only looks like at times it will get smaller then get big in the same spot like it is trying to leave the atmosphere. This is amazing. We live in the country and there are no city lights at all.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the witness may have been looking at a celestial body, probably the star, Sirius. PD))
