Mystery radar blips appear over Illinois and Kentucky and it’s uncertain why

The start of mystical blips that surfaced across radar in southern Illinois and western Kentucky Monday night may have come from military aircraft, but closeby military bases say they had nothing to do with it.

The Courier and Press newspaper in Evansville, Ind., reported that the storm-like blips left the National Weather Service in a state of confusion since it wasn’t raining in the region.

The report said social media users opined that the culprit could have been debris from passing meteors or even a flock of birds .

A local TV meteorologist tweeted out that an undisclosed pilot at the Evansville Regional Airport in Indiana said the fog was chaff – radar-jamming material sometimes let out during training exercises ,from a military C-130 aircraft.

WEHT-TV meteorologist Wayne Hart tweeted “Information from a pilot appears to confirm that chaff was the mysterious radar echo that traversed #tristatewx late Monday afternoon/evening. Pilot was told by EVV Air Traffic Control that chaff was released by a military C130 northwest of Evansville. @NWSPaducah,”.

If the blips were for sure chaff from a military plane, no military installations in the area are agreeing it as theirs.

“Whatever aircraft it was, it was not a Scott Air Force Base craft,” Master Sgt. Thomas Doscher saidon Tuesday morning.

A spokesperson for Fort Campbell in Kentucky noted he was unaware of any operation involving a C-130. He included that if such a plane did come from the Army base, it would have been involved in a secret special forces exercise.
