WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Recently many viewers have been sending 22News pictures and videos of bright objects in the sky.

22News asked those in charge of patrolling the airspace over the entire northeast what they might be. The F15s at Barnes Air National Guard Base in Westfield are always on alert, ready to intercept any threat in the skies.

Major Matthew Mutti of the 104th Fighter Wing told 22News the jets are often mistaken for UFOs.

"When we take off at night, depending on why we're flying or how fast we're going, we may be using our after burners and that cone of light that extends after the aircraft for almost 30 feet and someone who sees that out of the corner of their eye might think it's something other than an airplane."

Major Mutti also said this region will see about a thousand aircrafts in the sky every day and if any were a threat, the F15s would intercept them within a moments notice.
