The UFO pictured in the video embedded in the linked story is an unusual color (blue) and does not have the appearance of a characteristic night video of a star or passing airplane. It is an unknown. Further suggesting that some sort of unusual activity was taking place in the sky over Morehouse Parish, Louisiana on the night of April 2nd is this comment posted on the local news stations website, in response to the initial report and video:
"This article verifies that I was not the only one that saw a unidentified flying object Monday night. My friend and I were leaving dinner and noticed two women paying close attention to the night sky outside of Cormier’s. We didn’t stop but did wonder could they possibly see something such as a UFO? (we are both believers of phenomenons such as extra terrestrials.) we continued on and sort of forgot about what we had just seen. Once we got to Forsythe Ext. I noticed a circular object going fairly slow about 17,000 ft. above us. What caught my attention was the fact that there were no running lights,which are required for all aircrafts by law.We pulled to the shoulder and I tried to record with my phone,but it was too high up. There was a strip of lights over the back of the object and it was headed over the direction of River Oaks high school. As we followed it, we lost it during traffic. Now, I see this article. Wow! Something was surely up there!"
