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, 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).

The article’s source is News There you will find more info, larger photos and comments from their readers.

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.

Offered for your consideration….

    I’ve tried to post a comment on the blog page about the Weird Object Over Wichita article but it just keeps giving me errors about cookies, even though my cookies are enabled. Anyway, this is the comment I was going to make:

    Whatever this is, it’s pretty interesting that it appears to be reflective or sparkling. Look at this excerpt from chapter 10 of the book ‘After the Flood’ by Bill Cooper:

    Moreover, ‘dinosaurs’, in the form of flying reptiles, were a feature of Welsh life until surprisingly recent times. As late as the beginning of the present century, elderly folk at Penllin in Glamorgan used to tell of a colony of winged serpents that lived in the woods around Penllin Castle. As Marie Trevelyan tells us:

    ‘The woods around Penllin Castle, Glamorgan, had the reputation of being frequented by winged serpents, and these were the terror of old and young alike. An aged inhabitant of Penllyne, who died a few years ago, said that in his boyhood the winged serpents were described as very beautiful. They were coiled when in repose, and “looked as if they were covered with jewels of all sorts. Some of them had crests sparkling with all the colours of the rainbow”. When disturbed they glided swiftly, “sparkling all over,” to their hiding places. When angry, they “flew over people’s heads, with outspread wings, bright, and sometimes with eyes too, like the feathers in a peacock’s tail”. He said it was “no old story invented to frighten children”, but a real fact. His father and uncle had killed some of them, for they were as bad as foxes for poultry. The old man attributed the extinction of the winged serpents to the fact that they were “terrors in the farmyards and coverts”.) (6)

    Kind Regards,
