Still No Explanation For Nebraska UFO Sighting

Remember that fascinating UFO that was captured by a Nebraska TV meteorologist earlier this month? If you don't, then we recommend you watch the video above, but if you do, you'll be interested to hear that there is still no explanation as to what the object was. The story came to light when KLKN meteorologist Sean McCullen reported about the object live on the air early on the morning on September 4th 2013.

 

The strange diamond-shaped object was spotted via the station's 'Towercam' and remained in view for around 45 minutes with incredibly bright flashing lights emanating from within. McCullen remarked that the object looked distinctly like a weather balloon, but continued to say that weather balloons never contain lights, which is something this object most certainly did. 

 

Since then, a number of parties have started investigating the event including MUFON and the KLKN station itself. KLKN have committed to uncovering an explanation and have been updating followers on their website, but even after almost 2 weeks, they are still without an answer. Meanwhile, local MUFON investigator Rich Webb, believes this object is linked to a sighting earlier that morning that occurred around 250 miles away in Lee's Summit, MO. An account from the witness in Lee's Summit would seem to match what we see in the KLKN footage, with both sightings containing bright flashing lights, however with nothing but a blurry photo taken with an iPhone as evidence, the link is being treated as tenuous.

 

As part of the KLKN's investigations, the station enlisted the help of Professor Timothy Gay, who teaches Physics at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. Gay isn't buying the explanation of an extraterrestrial aircraft and even makes the bold guarantee that "extraterrestrials do not exist" and proceeds to offer up the explanation of a government aircraft being the source of all this commotion. 

 

So for now, this sighting continues to be a genuine UFO, but just what it's origins are, are definitely up for debate.
