CENTREVILLE, Va., Nov. 24 (UPI) -- A Virginia man says he is not convinced the unidentified blue object he photographed in the sky was a remote-controlled glider plane.
Bryan Fains, 29, who photographed the object above Centreville Nov. 3, said he still believes the object may have been an extraterrestrial spacecraft despite experts identifying it as a remote-controlled glider plane with LED lights, USA Today reported Wednesday.
"It seems impossible that we're the only ones in this universe," Fains said. "Whatever it was, I've never seen anything like it before."
George Mason University astronomer Harold Geller said recent UFO sightings could be attributable to several factors, including the brightness of Venus and Jupiter.
"The more reports picked up by the media, the more people report seeing such apparitions," he said.
