A witness noticed a UFO streaking through the sky above Meridian, Idaho on Wednesday, October 8.
Kaitlyn Ellis noticed the aerial object from her backyard at approximately 2:45 p.m. She recorded video of the UFO as it moved across the sky. She asserts that she then saw a plane with a long contrail following the unknown object.
Witnesses in Meridian’s neighboring city, Boise, also reportedly saw the UFO.
KBOI 2 News contacted Colonel Tim Marsano with the Idaho National Guard to get his opinion of the UFO over Meridian. “I really don’t have any idea what that is,” he explained. “But I can tell you for sure it’s not anything that belongs to the Idaho National Guard or the Army National Guard.”
The news station also contacted amateur astronomer John McVey who opined that the object in the video is too slow to be a meteor.
Although the object in question was not related to Idaho National Guard or Army National Guard exercises, its behavior and appearance are consistent with a conventional aircraft. And military craft aren’t the only craft flying over Idaho. So it’s plausible that the object in the video is simply a private or commercial plane.
But the object has not officially been identified.
