Further Description of Sighting: My brother, Kris Whittington, Joan – his girlfriend and two of her girlfriends were in Newcastle Kentucky in a corn field with a camp fire. They were drinking beer and we were all laying back and staring at the sky. The sky was full of stars more than I had ever seen in the skies over Kentucky – more like I saw when I lived in the west Colorado, Utah, California etc.
Suddenly the stars were blotted out from the sky – total darknes … like a eclipse of the moon and the stars … very odd and then we saw this …. ship? it was less than 300 yards in the air above the ground . It slowly, silently , purposely moved over us and past us. My brother and I began to follow it away from our camp on foot. We were able to keep it in sight for more than 15 minutes and the only reason we stopped was because the three females with us were crying and very frightened.
They begged us not to follow any longer so we stopped. The next day the radio said it was a Russian satellite crashing thru the atmosphere …. this craft was not crashing and it was methodical in it’s movements. There was no fire no rocket exhaust no visible proof of any combustion happening anywhere on the surface of the craft and it made no sound and it was very close to the ground . We had a very good view of the craft for a very long time.
