“My wife held the cell phone out the window and was snapping shots as we rode,” the reporting witness stated. “After about seven shots she stopped. Nothing was visible in sky as we rode.”

But then they reviewed the images that were taken about 7:15 p.m. on October 4, 2014.

“On the last photo we saw the four objects which looked like exhaust coming out of the bottom. One or two previous shots showed faint blurred images which I assume were part of this four but not as close. Never saw the items. They only appeared in the photo.”

  1. It takes about one second for someone with a brain to determine that these are highway street lamps. To post this as a “story,” you discredit yourself as any type of reporter.

  2. As the others say, it’s obviously just the lamps. Honestly when i see this kind of “news”, i wonder if i’ll keep following this website 🙁

  3. Except I’m curious as to why the trees are not blurred to the same extent as you suggest the “lamp posts” are… As well as the clouds. Also, motion blur has a direction. One side of the blurred item would be sharp and the other would be “smeared”.
    It is possible that this is something mundane, but in and of itself, the image does not support simple motion blur.

  4. If you compare object #2 and #3, the object to scale it doesn’t look correct. The third object is further away but appears just a smidgen smaller than object #2. Also, the objects appear blurred or without hard lines while the trees are very defined.

  5. The article states the couple was driving west on I-85. You can’t drive west on that interstate as it is a north/south interstate. I know this as I live in Georgia.

  6. Not strictly true, Gerald. I85 runs NE – SW through Georgia. It’s fair to say they were travelling ‘west’ rather than ‘south’, for example.
