Residents of Pike County, Ky. witnessed a strange sight in the sky on 16 Oct. 2013. Amateur astronomer Allen Epling said to a local paper that it appeared like two fluorescent bulbs, side by side, parallel.

Epling said that it was clearly visible with the naked eye, and it went so bright that it seemed to have merged. It then dimmed down to go almost invisible.

According to him, it was not anything he has seen ever before in the sky. It was not certainly an airplane, and a helicopter never appeared like that.

Phone calls were made by the concerned citizens to police in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee.

The UFO was estimated to have gone to the height of 60,000 feet. It was almost stationary at that altitude for hours.

The mystery has been unraveled by an article in Wired magazine. The mysterious craft was part of a Google-financed tech endeavor code, Project Loon.

"It was a test of Project Loon, a breathtakingly ambitious plan to bring the Internet to a huge swath of as-yet-unconnected humanity via thousands of solar-powered, high-pressure balloons floating some 60,000 feet above Earth", wrote Wired's Steven Levy.

According to Levy reports, the balloon was in the sky for 11 days before it reached Canada.
