(KTVI)-- Colorful balls of light racing across the night sky are caught on video by a Jefferson County woman. Now she’s trying to figure out what she saw. Amber Wysocki captured the video on her cell phone. “I was shocked. Kind of like, what am I seeing? Am I seeing something I didn’t know what to think?” she stated.
Wysocki was driving south Interstate 55 Friday night when she saw lights in the sky near Pevely. She took out her camera and started shooting. There were white blinking lights followed by two balls of light that were blue. All her life Amber has been a doubter when it came to UFOs and aliens. She said, “I don’t find that stuff possible. I’m so skeptical. I guess that’s why I reported it. I’d like to know.”
She contacted the National UFO Reporting Center in Washington State and talked to director Peter Davenport. He said he needs to hear from more people who may have seen what Amber saw. Davenport added, “It’s very difficult for me to see anything in the video that is unambiguous and causes us to sit up and take notice of it.”
John Lakey the director of the Science Center Planetarium agreed there’s just no enough information in the video. While, some scientists are certain there is microbial life on another planet in our own solar system, intelligent life somewhere else is still debatable. Lakey said, “That we are the only planet that has evolved intelligent life, I think the odds are against it but the evidence isn’t there yet.”
The UFO center has received thousands of video and photograph over the years but only a handful are really interesting. Davenport said, “We conclude that only very few of them are potentially of alien spaceships, UFOs.”
Still people like Amber Wysocki will keep an eye on the skies, “all I know it’s unidentifiable.”
Lakey and Davenport said the racing lights could have been anything from an aircraft, a child’s flying toy with LED lights, a satellite or a planet.
