Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.


Lincoln, Nebraska. KLKN’s HD Towercam on Channel 8 showed something strange in the early morning weather segment. Meteorologist Sean McMullen spotted a pulsating diamond-shaped UFO on the network’s HD camera. The strange object hovered over Lincoln, Nebraska in the early hours of September 4th, 2013.

“I have never seen anything like this before. I even say that several times while I’m on air describing the object, because I want to let people know even I don’t know what this is, so I can’t exactly tell you what it is,” -Sean McMullen.

The video was upload to YouTube by the user Isaac Wilee. It’s definitely a UFO by definition. The object appears to rapidly change colors, as if being illuminated by an internal strobe light. As far as we all know, military or government weather balloons are not equipped with multi-colored lights. However, hoaxers are known to use these type of lighting systems in homemade atmosphere-reaching balloons or R/C helicopters.

Weather balloon? R/C toy? UFO? What do you guys make of this?

    Swamp gas like the strucutre over O’Hera air port or the Pheonix lights right – even when the EX Gov of Arizona admits to UFOs. Man – skeptic trolls are funny as hell.

    If that is the case, I have seen similar… I am on the fence what it was. It looked for all the world like a stationary drone… But it was literally TOO stationary. Took a video, took a pic, and even contacted MUFON. They were… Less than helpful. The only thing that keeps me toppling off the fence was the fact there was a helicopter within 100 feet of it.

    As usual the video won’t play.

    I appreciate the fact that Mr. McMullen approached this sighting–whatever it is–in a straightforward, professional, unbiased way. None of the usual eyeball-rolling, theme from TWILIGHT ZONE-imitating, stupid-joke-cracking idiocy that usually accompanies these events. Would it have been handled the same way if a witness from the general public had called in a report to the station, asking that their network cameras be checked to see if the object was visible on their equipment?
