A Pike County UFO alleged sighting has been explained

 WYMT is reporting that reports of an October 2012 UFO sighting in Pike County have now been explained. Pictures taken by Allen Epling showed a slim cylinder shaped object floating in the sky. The sighting captured the attention of national media outlets and law enforcement officials in three states were contacted by individuals who reported seeing the object. The company Google has now taken responsibility for the object, calling it "Project Loon" Representatives of the company state that the program consists of balloons that fly above the earth's surface forming a communication network. The aim is to bring internet to a large portion of the world's population that wouldn't otherwise have connection. While the company said this was their balloon photographed, they declined to go into further detail. Allen Epling says he is skeptical of Google's claims.
