Today we’re venturing into the realm of the unexplained.
That’s the best term to describe what Jeremy White and two cohorts saw early in the morning sky on July 29 down in Pulaski County. It was a UFO, White told me.
By that he doesn’t necessarily mean it was flying saucer, or an alien spacecraft. But it sure as heck was weird.
White, 37, is a property manager for a residential landlord in Montgomery County. I’ve met the guy. He’s intelligent, self-deprecating, a rationalist. He doesn’t strike me as any kind of kook. He works unusual hours. He relaxes at unusual hours, too.
That explains why he and two pals were cruising through the Snowville area in a car at 1 a.m. on a Monday morning. It’s southeast of Claytor Lake in Pulaski County.
They saw it along Simpkinstown Road near the entrance to Camp Ottari, a large Boy Scouts compound, in a clearing where the camp access road begins. At first, it looked like a brighter-than-normal star or planet a little bit above the horizon. The entire event took about seven minutes.
“After about 20 seconds, we rounded a bend and there it was, much closer and brighter. It was now a yellow-orange color and seemed to be moving in our general direction. I stopped the car, killed the engine and sat out on the window sill to listen.”
