Google claims responsibility for UFO reported in Pike County last year

A company has claimed responsibility for some strange sightings in eastern Kentucky last year.

Some people around Pike County reported seeing a mysterious object in the sky.

Now, leaders with Google say it's part of their Project Loon, an initiative aimed at providing wireless internet access from a balloon 65,000 feet above the ground.

But one astronomer still isn't convinced.

"I have a picture here that i took. the picture of the object that google sent up is this. I don't see any resemblance," says astronomer Allen Epling.

Epling also said some people reported seeing the same object two years ago before Google's project began.
