Duration:20 minutes
My son and I had extended viewing of glowing cylindrical object. We were both moving west at approximately 70 mph. We were on I-64 near intersection of WV, OH, and KY, near Huntington, WV. The object was glowing, no visible means of propulsion. No markings. Two aircraft approached, one from east, other from northwest. Son had binoculars, identified one as Navy Tomcat, other as Air Force F something or other. He had binoculars. As aircraft approached, the cigarette shaped object glowed very brightly, like a magnesium flare, then became invisible. The aircraft broke off and returned to their bases, apparently.

Dear friend, now deceased, had farm near Beattyville, KY. There is a Buddhist monastery near there, and they were apparently contacting aliens as at Mt. Shasta. Many people congregated there to observe, her dad gave them permission to camp out. The sightings were reported to newspaper in Lexington, KY. Dr. Kern, an astronomer at U of KY, said the UFOs were the planet Venus. No wonder people hesitate to report.
