CINCINNATI, Ohio (FOX19) - A floating object making some Butler County residents question their sanity Tuesday night might be by definition an “unidentified flying object,” but it’s far from extraterrestrial.

Butler County dispatch confirmed the “UFO” spotted floating above Oxford, Dartown and McGonigal is actually a balloon from a company called Loon, which works with mobile networks to expand LTE coverage in places that don’t have much access to it.

One of its main purposes is to help people access the internet after natural disasters, according to Loon’s website.
