Would you like to sit down one-on-one with an IMU representative and talk about whether IMU is for you? We are pleased to make this option available through our new online scheduling program. We have kept our schedule as flexible as possible because we know so many of you are international or work day jobs that make it difficult to schedule during regular working hours. We are available to contact you up to 18 hours per day 6 days per week.
To schedule a time with us, go to https://intermetu.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php.
Leave the phone number that you want us to call you on or leave a Skype ID if you are international. We can do just audio or audio and video if you prefer.
We look forward to talking with you.
As you can imagine, we at IMU get to see a lot of videos of UFOs. But I can honestly say I’ve never seen anything like this! What the heck is it? Does anyone have any ideas? Have you seen a UFO like it? I’m particularly fascinated by this UFO because it is local, it was seen in broad daylight for more than 2 hours, and even the local astronomer didn’t know what it was after looking at it through a telescope. The shape is so unlike any UFO I’ve ever seen that it makes me wonder if it was something “human” that is as yet unidentified. Any ideas?

Strange cigar-shaped UFOs appear over southern U.S.
23 Oct, 2012
Lex 18, the NBC affiliate in Lexington, Kentucky, aired a news story on October 16 about a shiny, cigar-shaped UFO that was photographed over Pike County that afternoon.
Longtime amateur astronomer Allen Epling witnessed the mysterious object, and captured it on video with his Meade 8″ SCT astronomical telsecope. He explains that the UFO hovered in the same location for more than two hours, “not drifting more than 10 degress in any direction.” But Epling isn’t the only individual who witnessed the UFO. According to Lex 18, local police received numerous calls about the strange aerial object.
Epling posted his video online, and he explains in the video’s description:
Image in video was shot with about 150 power magnification. I couldn’t risk losing it by taking time to set up a tripod or fixed mount for the camera, so I handheld the camera and struggled to keep the image steady and in the field of view. Couldn’t take time to really get a good focus for fear of losing it. However the object’s periodic brightening blurred the image anyway at full brightness.
In addition to his video, Epling was able to snap several photos of the UFO.
Journalist Kyle Lovern photographed a similar aerial object that same day approximately thirty miles away in Williamson, West Virginia. Several witnesses over a wide area have reportedly seen this UFO.
According to Lex 18, the Air Force and local airports were contacted about the object in Kentucky, but so far, nobody has been able to identify these sightings.
Thanks to Steve Hammons for bringing these sightings to my attention.
