Judge for yourself...do you see a UFO?

Picture poses question:

Are we alone?


Reported by Nick Kenney

Take a look at the picture and let us know what you see. The ring at the top center has a lot of people asking the question: What is it?

While staring into the dusk sky a small group in one neighborhood couldn't quite grasp what they were looking at.

So, one Millington woman grabbed her camera. The pictures still don't quite clarify what's hovering overhead.

Jan Yarbro saw that unexplained figure in the sky Wednesday night just after 8:00.

She grabbed her camera and snapped a series of photos. But is that car-sized, translucent, black outline out-of-this world?

"Looked up in the sky, saw the thick black circle," said Yarbro. "It stayed stationary, no lights or anything like that. Stayed there for 20, 30 minutes and then it just started disappearing," she added.

It's a picture that's leaving neighbors not necessarily sold on the paranormal, but definitely open-minded.

"Stuff's been getting in that garden back there, but we figured it was coons. Now it might be something different," said Yarbro. "I'm sure there's an explanation that's simple, but it's just interesting," she added.

Neighbors are just looking for some logic in a close encounter. Yarbro says her pictures were not doctored.

Those on Lucy Road say they've never seen that bubble before or in the few days since.

UPDATE:  Mystery of "UFO" seen last week near Millington is solved

A mysterious picture, taken at a home near Millington, kept people perplexed for nearly a week. (Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see the picture)

The image, of a mysterious object hovering over the ground, spurred dozens of emails from WMCTV.com readers.

Suggestions on what the object might be were varied, from water on a lense, to a spaceship with a cloaking device, to a stealth aircraft.

One email even called us "stupid."

Our search for the real answer took us far and wide, eventually ending in Eads, where itwas found alongside another big, open pasture.

Amid rows of pipe, and lines of charge, the answer lurked...with Randy Bast.

Bast is the operator of High Tech Special Effects.  A crew headed by Bast spent last Wednesday near Lucy Road at Memphis Motorsports Park, shooting pyrotechnics for an upcoming television special.

At 7:30 that night, they set off a gas bomb.  A carbon smoke ring, a byproduct of the bomb that usually lasts no more than five minutes, stuck around for over 40 minutes.

"There was no wind that day, so it hung there remarkably long, compared to the normal ones that we do," Bast said.

The answer: A smoke ring, something perhaps un-natural, but definitely not supernatural.
