That is the question I'm seeing more and more these days.

What is that in the sky? Even if we know WHAT it is, the question remains, WHO is it?

Now, an app allows you to investigate what is flying over your house.

UFO's not included.

It's called FlightRadar24.

The amazing thing is seeing how many aircraft are in the sky at any given time.

FlightRadar24 allows you to see who owns the aircraft, in most cases.

I love watching the app and seeing what is flying over Tuscaloosa at any moment.

Typically, it is a flight from a commercial airliner going from point A to point B.

However, at times it is much more mysterious in the skies above.

I've seen many aircraft hovering owned by the United States military.

That is not unusual when you consider that a new training/flight school just opened in our region.

What is interesting is seeing seven or eight drones all in one tiny area for hours and hours.

In the middle of the night.

What is that?

Well, wouldn't it be nice if it looked like this?

You never know what you will see in the skies at night.

That certainly qualifies as strange.

You also have what this guy recorded just recently.

I like the app that allows me to check out who owns most aircraft in the sky over West Alabama.

I don't think I want to know who owns some of these other "objects".
