You have to love living in the digital age of smartphones.. there’s never an excuse to not take a picture of something seemingly incredible, even if you’re pointing the lens into a telescope.
A Sacramento man did just that when he noticed a strange object floating in the sky. Accompanying it was a much smaller, much faster object. Cody Prychodzk, an amateur astronomer, whipped out his smartphone, and decided to capture the sight while it was still there.
“I saw something that I’d never seen before. I saw another object orbiting this — whatever it was up there, and I’ve never seen anything like that before,” Prychodzk told CBS13 News.
After shooting the first clip and phoning his nephew, Cody went back to shoot some more.. only to find a seemingly massive explosion instead.
“Oh my God, it just blew up. Something blew up,” he stammers.
When shown the video, Dr. Stephen P Maran, author of Astronomy for Dummies, could only say that ”it is not an astronomical event,” leaving us to ponder what in the world (or somewhere else..) we could actually be seeing. A UFO on a collision course? Light fractals dancing on a lens? Or maybe just a galactic piñata party?
