Mysterious light in the sky over Georgia

Posted: 12:21 PM ET

People are trying to explain this mysterious light in the sky over Stone Mountain, GA. The Atlanta Journal Constitution says some people thought it was an experimental military space ship, but one expert dismissed that. Others speculate, it was a military plane... But there's no record of military flights there. One possible explanation: An optical illusion caused by the sun lighting up the contrail left by an airplane.

Decide for yourself. You can see the full video at

I am willing to bet it is just a contrail....look to the right just above the trees midway through the video....another one is heading its way.

IF the camera shooter would have held still....the pic would be better....nothing more than a contrail I bet though.

It's plainly a contrail. I saw the same thing in the Mojave a long time ago.

BTW, if you want to play cameraman, buy a tripod. It doesn't cost a lot and it will keep your videos from looking like they were made by an epileptic jackhammer operator.

does it have anything to do with Marian apparitions at Conyers?

could it have possibly been a meterorite burning in the atmosphere?
