(Preble County, OH)--There may now be an explanation for a mysterious bright, white dot that appeared in the early-evening sky over parts of the Whitewater Valley earlier this week. Numerous residents in the Eaton area spotted it. The object looked like a balloon but did not drift like a normal balloon does. Military experts now say it was likely one of three objects launched from Maryland as part of the U.S. Military’s Defense Advance Research Project Agency, known as DARPA. The object appeared in the sky for over an hour.
