An intriguing image of an odd anomaly in the sky over Washington's Whidbey Island has had UFO enthusiasts buzzing this week, but it appears that the mystery may have already been solved. The photo, which came from a webcam operated by a website known as Skunk Bay Weather, shows a bright object seemingly ascending in a manner reminiscent of a rocket launch. The group shared the image on Twitter earlier this week and the perplexing photo set off something of a firestorm.
Speculation surrounding the nature of the object largely centered around the theory that it was an unannounced rocket or missile launch. However, the nearby Naval Air Station said that they had nothing to do with the strange event. And another suspected sources for a mystery rocket, nuclear submarine stationed in the area, also proved unlikely to be the origin of the object. As one can imagine, this led to murmurs in some corners of the UFO researcher community that it may have been something not of this world.
Alas, according to an excellent report by website The Drive, the ET hypothesis apparently does not hold up in this instance. Find out what their investigation into the image discovered at the Coast to Coast AM website.
