A Sacramento man, Elijah Prychodzko, scanning the sky with his telescope on December 20, 2012, spotted something very unusual. A bright, glowing object orbiting around another object.
“I saw something that I’d never seen before. I saw another object orbiting this – whatever it was up there, and I’ve never seen anything like that before.”
Prychodzko was looking through his telescope when he noticed a large, glowing object in the sky, a “planet” he presumed, with something orbiting around it. He held his iPhone to the telescope viewer and shot a few seconds of video. In the video you can clearly see a small white object orbiting the other, larger object. Prychodzko thought the phenomena was unusual so he contacted his nephew on the phone. When he returned to his telescope to begin filming again, the moment he began filming, the object exploded.
“Oh my God, it just blew up. Something blew up. As soon as I put the camera to the telescope it just blew up.”
Thus far experts have not been able to confirm what the objects in the sky were. Check the video below for the full CBS 13 news segment.
