Weird Object Over Wichita

Will these cryptid photos drive me to a distraction?
Hold my legs! I’m having a knee-jerk “creationist” reaction!
I get itchy and I shake when I have to decide
If I’m going to believe “Science” – or my own lying eyes?
No, that dress doesn’t make you look fat- it’s my 20-20 vision
But now, will my perfect eyesight just lead to derision?
One drink of that evolution Kool-Aid and it’ll seem coincidental
That this cryptid has the characteristics of an “extinct” pterodactyl!
The Darwinist police will want my “chrymes” to desist
I hope they don’t check the expiration on my poetic license! :0)

In a story by Dirk Vander Ploeg of UFODigest.com, he recieved an email from “Daniel” on Feb. 6, 2009. (photo submitted by Daniel and enhanced by Bruce Jessop)

“He was taking photos of a construction site East of Wichita, Kansas when he heard a buzzing-whirling sound.

The object or “thing” as Daniel calls it came out of the clouds and streaked past “faster than anything I have every seen!”

Because Daniel lives in Wichita he claims to be familiar with every kind of aircraft from Boeing and McConnell Air Force Base.

He describes the object as being black and very shiny with a surface similar to glass. You can see the glass reflecting off of it. The pink circular pattern in the sky was only there for 10 seconds or so”, said Daniel.”

From the Wichita Eagle Newspaper

“I was facing east when I shot the photo,” the man, who asked not to be identified, said in an e-mail.

He described what he saw: “The object came out of the clouds really fast. It sounded kind of like a jet but much, much softer and had a whirling sound with it.

“I only got off one shot because it was really close before I realized it was something different. It went back upward, much like a jet, and was gone.

“There was a odd pinkish glow in the sky behind it.”

In a telephone interview, the man said he takes still-life photos as a hobby. He said it was fortunate he had his camera out when the object flew into his view because he saw it for only a few seconds.

“The only problem was I had a real slow lens… . I wasn’t planning on taking a picture of anything moving,” he said.

He said he used to work at Boeing and has seen a lot of aircraft over the years.

“It didn’t sound like one of these jets that I hear all the time…. It was much quieter, much quieter,” he said.

He noticed that the flying machine’s exterior looked black and shiny.

He estimated the object came no closer than 1,000 feet above the ground. It swooped in as if it was on “a bombing run.”

“Then in one smooth motion, it went back up,” he said.

There have been a number of comments suggesting what the object is; the space shuttle on the back of a B52, an unknown jet etc. Some have suggested that it is a bird–noting the beak and wings but so far, no one has gone primeval yet (except us).

Our second photo compares Daniel’s photo with a pterodactyl and a “Ropen” with upswept wings, wing claws, a head prong and long tail. Of course, if you believe that the pterodactyl became extinct 65 million years ago, then a crow is a better explanation.
