    It doesn't look like the toy at the link from the website but it could be something similar.

    A UFO seen earlier this month over Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee has been tentatively identified by a popular website in the United Kingdom. According to information made available on Oct. 26, 2012, the UFO may have been nothing more than a child's toy that retails for approximately $15. To be specific, the unidentified flying object that was spotted by thousands of witnesses across three states was nothing more than a solar-powered airship, according to The Daily Mail.

    The toy measures more than 26 feet in length. It is made from "high-density, lightweight matte black films [that] reacts to the heat from the sun and gets bigger as it fills with air."

    The impressive airship can fly as high as 30,000 feet. However, amateur astronomer Allen Epling, who captured the strange UFO on video, claimed that the object he saw was soaring a whopping 100,000 feet off the ground, far higher than the toy's capabilities.

    lol.

    Pspr is an engineer so he comes with a built-in capacity to believe UFOs are possible but also a built-in high threshold for needing data before he will believe.

    You give me too much credit.

    But, I am with Mav88. I'm tired of people chasing UFO's and want to see someone catch one and put it on display! The same goes for Bigfoot. Trap that sucker and drag is ass out of the forest for us to see.

    With all of the cellphone cameras and video cameras and CCTV surveillance cameras out there you would think that there would be more meaningful pictures and video. Maybe the lack of pictures and video *is* data.

    ha ha ha. I think I misstated by objective. If there isn't one to capture, I want to know what all these things people are seeing are. At least the ones that have been unexplainable. If it's some sort of phenomena I want to know what that is (or they are) and how it/they work. One or the other. I have no problem believing that aliens visiting the earth don't exist. I just want to know, what is this stuff that is so mysterious.

    But, like everyone else who has an interest, the bigger, bolder and more profound the answers the more it will satisfy my life long curiosity. For instance, if it were proven tomorrow that it is all just a quirk of the human mind, an illusion that we create to deal with life, that would be the biggest disappointment I have ever suffered. Well maybe right after Melissa M. :(
