Unidentified Aerial Object As High As Jet Stream?

“I would estimate the unidentified flying object was anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 feet in altitude because I could easily see that passenger jets flew under it.”

- Allen Epling, Amateur Astronomer, Virgie, KY

 

October 16, 2012, 2 to 4:30 PM, mysterious,  unidentified aerial object remained stationary above airliner traffic, perhaps near 50,000 feet or more in the rapid jet stream. How could the object remain stable and unmoving for 2.5 hours? Telescope image © 2012 by Allen Epling.

The purple and red marker is Virgie, Kentucky, home of retired science teacher and amateur astronomer Allen Epling, who photographed and videotaped the mysterious unidentified aerial object that remained stationary high in the sky for 2.5 hours on  October 16, 2012, from 2 - 4:30 PM. Other eyewitnesses beyond Virgie were in Pikeville, Kentucky and further on across the border in Williamson, West Virginia. Also south of Williamson in South Williamson, Kentucky, The Daily News reported, “Several jets appeared to fly in the vicinity of the UFO. Contrails could be seen zigzagging all around the object.”  Other people were watching the strange, bright sky object in Kentucky's Elkhorn City, Jenkins, and Letcher County. Then south of the Kentucky border east of Kingsport in Blountville,  Tennessee, an eyewitness reported seeing the same object that Allen Epling photographed. For people to see the same object over so many miles means the object was very high.

October 27, 2012  Virgie, Kentucky - Major jet streams on Earth are upper atmosphere winds that blow west to east.  The Northern Hemisphere has both polar and subtropical jet streams. Polar jets are stronger and flow at 23,000 to 39,000 feet above sea level (7-12 km). Subtropical jets are somewhat weaker at about 33,000 to 52,000 feet (10-16 km). That altitude is higher than normal airliner traffic. Passenger airliners fly around 32,000 to 40,000 feet.
