An employee at Spring Creek Ranch (located 1000 ft. above Jackson City, WY) decided on Sunday, August 12 to check out footage on her webcam to see if she captured anything from the Perseid Meteor Shower, reports buckrail.com.
She saw a very bright object on the screen, at 3:41 a.m. and had no clue what it could be.
In one moment, the mysterious object accelerated, and you can see the energy around it.
Buckrail.com checked the flight log database on the US Department of Transportation website and at that moment no flights are registered in that airspace.
A meteor appeared to be the most logical explanation, but it was ruled out by three distinct astronomers — it’s too bright, it moved too slowly, and meteors left a streak in their wake.
