UFOs in the daily Press:

UFOs or stars, Kentucky, USA, 1988:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Herald News, of Hardingsburg, Kentucky, USA, on November 30, 1988.

An unidentified flying object was reported to the Breckinridge County Dispatcher Monday night, November 28, about 9 p.m. The strange light that was viewed by several residents around the county seemed to move with pulsating colors of blue, green and white, as it crossed from the eastern sky and moved southwest.

Residents said the object appeared west of Hardinsburg, moved east toward Texas Gas, circled to the Harned area, then southeast toward Hardin County, and faded out of sight.

As one group traveled in search of the strange light, south on Ky. 261, red and yellow light beams came down from a flattened moon-shaped object, and then it disappeared.

The Kentucky state Police were called to a residence west of Hardinsburg. Trooper Robert J. Williams viewed the object through binoculars and phoned the airport at Fort Knox to see if they could find any objects in the area on their radar.

The Fort Knox radar picked up nothing on their sweep of the area, said Williams.

Williams, who has been studying astrology for 30 years, offered this explanation:

"At a certain time of the year there appears a thermal inversion with pulsating lights changing from blue to green to white, and always looks like its going away from you," said williams.

"What I saw appeared to be a brightly colored star below Orion's belt in the Orion constellation, just above the horizon in the East," he continued.

In the Orion belt three stars appear in a straight row, and just below that is a very large star. The most prominent light in the sky at this time is the planet Jupiter, located just above the Orion Constellation.

"The planets and stars follow the Zodiac Belt," said Williams. "Jupiter appears as a large star just to the west the moons of Jupiter can be viewed by a telescope. The red colored light is Mars, and Orion is below that," he continued.

"There are 58 navigational stars. Each star appears at different places in the sky each night and is measured by hours. minutes and seconds. Each star each night, can be used by navigators to plot courses and find where they are on the earth," Williams explained.

So don't get excited. A special star appeared in the sky nearly 2,000 years ago for a special reason. God only had one son.
