The sighting has excited the UFO community online - leading to a group of enthusiasts known as the Ashtar Command Crew claiming the craft to be a 'Lightship'
Something very strange was spotted high above the skies of Pike County last week leaving those who witnessed the UFO bewildered as to what it could be.
The mystery glowing object which has left people wondering what is flying over their heads was watched by amateur astronomer Allen Epling from his Virgie, Kentucky home for over two hours.
Taking video and pictures of the unusual craft, Epling was just one of thousands who saw the cigar-shaped craft across three states and the part-time star-gazer estimated the UFO to be operating at over 100,000 feet - over twice the height a commercial jet flies.

'It wasn't anything I recognised. Definitely not an airplane, and I've never seen a helicopter that looked like that,' said Allen Epling to WSAZ News.
Witnessed across Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee the UFO was unlike anything the veteran amateur astronomer had ever seen before.
'Looked like two fluorescent bulbs, side by side, parallel, shining very brightly,' said Epling.
'It would get so bright they would seem to merge, and you could see it very clearly with the naked eye. Then it would dim down almost invisible.'
