In his popular YouTube channel, HomeSteadHow, Kerry Mann and his family document their lives as homesteaders on a 20-acre chunk of land in Wisconsin. The channel includes tons of interesting videos about living off the land in addition to other topics they find interesting.
In a recent video, Kerry talks about how he sighted a UFO in the skies above his home while attempting to take photos of the Milky Way. The photos he posted in his YouTube video are some of the best I’ve ever seen and seem to defy explanation.
The Sighting Details
Kerry reached out to Alien UFO Blog soon after the video and provided some details about the sighting.
Date of Sighting: June 13, 2001
Time of Day: 10:22 PM
Number of UFOs Sighted: 1
Distance: A few hundred feet
Description: While trying to get a time-lapse of the Milky Way I saw a UFO. I was able to take 4 quick photos of the UFO. I put these photos as well as me zooming into them and exploring them more into a video.
I followed up with Kerry and he told me that the pictures were taken about 1 hour and 45 minutes after sundown, with the video being shot towards the NW and the object coming in from the North.
The video pretty much speaks for itself.
I don’t have a lot of ideas for this one. The shape doesn’t match any typical aircraft, but bright lights can mask an object’s true shape. My first thought was that this could be a high-flying airplane that’s being illuminated from beneath by the sun which was already set beyond view at ground-level. But when I got more information towards the time of day and direction the image was shot from, that explanation simply didn’t make sense.
It’s also possible the entire thing could be a hoax perpetrated for YouTube views, but there’s no evidence of that being the case. In my emails with Kerry, he came across as authentic and truly surprised about what he’d caught on film.
Filed Away as Unexplained
Without further information, I’d have to leave this one as an unexplained mystery. The identity of whatever Kerry Mann caught on camera that summer night in Wisconsin might never be known.
