"This is not the first and definitely not the last time as I search the night skies for galaxies, nebula and the truth that is out there," the astronomer stated.
This UFO sight has been reported to the popular organisation MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) by the astronomer.
This is not the first time cigar-shaped objects have been spotted by astronomers and UFOlogists. In November, astronomers had discovered a similar object which turned out to be the first interstellar asteroid. It was around 400 metres long, rocky with reddish hue and was named Oumuamua.
