UPDATE: Those readers who commented on our website or facebook page suggesting that the “UFO” is related to reflected lighting were, of course, correct. Investigation proved that the object was the reflection of a fluorescent light fixture in the Waffle House, through whose window the sunset photo was taken.
Our favorite comment, though, was from Crystal, and can be read in the comments section below.
A local resident took a picture of the sunset west of New Albany last Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 26, 2016, at about 5:15 p.m.
In the photograph two parallel bar-shaped objects can clearly be seen streaking through the sky in the upper left of the picture. It was an Unidentified Flying Object, a UFO — but not unidentified for long.
The photographer made a hasty investigation and soon identified what was racing across the sky over the intersection of Interstate 22 and Highway 30.
