The UFO chronicles
Author, journalist and mother, Lisa Suhay's trip to the grocery store last Sunday afternoon (9-8-13) was anything but mundane. While driving home with her son Quin, he noticed what she would later describe as a “bright flare” in the sky.
The curiosity and inquisitiveness of a nine-year-old boy is in part focused on celestial objects and astronomy and nurtured by his mother. In fact a sky-watch was scheduled for later that evening to view the crescent moon and the planet Venus; little did they know, the preamble would steal the show.
With the initial sighting of the “flare” Mrs. Suhay quickly pulled into a parking lot; she and Quin jumped out and she began recording with her cell phone. In the article she penned for The Christian Monitor she wrote:
“What we saw with the naked eye were irregular black shapes appearing in the sky with orange coronas that flared around the leading edge and bright trails of white light behind them. It looked like a match head burning through a picture of the sky from the back.The impact of the event precipitated a personal investigation into the matter and to find out just what she and her young son witnessed. She called Dr. Edward M. Murphy of the University of Virginia’s Astronomy Department and Observatory and queried him. After inspecting her video and stills from her cell phone camera he stated:
In photos they just look like a jet contrail super highway.
Some seemed to be falling up, others changed course. Two nearly collided. Several seemed to just come down through the atmosphere as hunks of blackness with an orangey corona at the head and then became all white light. Each lasted only moments. The entire event lasted less than about eight minutes.”
“From the way these are moving and the fact that two actually seem to go right at each other from opposite directions, and their speed, it isn’t likely to be a naturally occurring event but more likely some sort of very fast, high atmosphere craft. Probably military but I can’t really say.”Another call was put into the Air Ops at Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach and as of yesterday it hadn’t been returned.
The mystery continues . . ..
