Lafayette, Indiana, USA; April 16, 2008

Name: Anonymous

Date of Event: April 16th, 2008 around 10:40PM.

Location of Event: Lafayette Indiana

Message: Two of us were outside and looked up in the sky to see a line of about 5 orange tinted lights.  They then went out and re-appeared about 5 degrees higher.  They were originally about at 25 degrees horizon elevation.  The lights then went out an re-appeared about another 5 degrees up and to the left.  This was in the East sky and they were moving South.  The whole event lasted maybe 40 seconds.  There was no noise, and the light were steady the whole time, no flashing.  They were perfectly spaced at all times.  While the lights were on, they weren’t moving.  They seemed to be about 1 or 2 miles away.  Anyone else see this??

    I live in Kokomo, Indiana and saw the exact same thing. It wasn’t there for long. I went outside because we heard what sounded like an explosion. Just like you, there was no noise while the object was there.

    First there was a boom. My family and I went outside to see what it was. Then I saw an airplane of some sort heading west. As I was pointing at the plane, The lights appeared what looked like to be in front of the plane. One light appeared in the western sky and then divided into about 5 lights in a perfect row. The lights(not like bulbs, but round flames.) were fading in and out. A few of what looked like sparks emitted and the lights disappeared. They then reappeared at approximately the same place, but different angle. We saw more “Sparks” then what looked like a flaming fragment shoot off to the north while the lights were still flashing and then the lights seemed to “spark/disintegrate”. The plane that was heading straight toward it had to of seen the whole thing! I am hoping that someone captured it on video. They are trying to say that this was caused by some kind of meteor or atmospheric disturbance, but anyone who witnessed this would agree this was not meteors. I would also like to hear any feedback or other info anyone has, please post here.

    around 1:30am on tuesday night, i saw something that looked like a meteor shoot through the sky. like the person above said, there were sparks/flame/fire trailing behind a bright yellowish-orange spherical object. at the time, i thought it was a meteor, but people told me about seeing five yellow lights that night and that it might have been a UFO. it was definitely not like anything i’ve seen before.

    yeah i deffinatly saw the lights from westlafayette on the purdue campus as i was walking down a street i looked up and saw a yellow light it then dissappeared and about two seconds later reappeared in a different position it kept on doing so in a random fashion and at one point there were two yellow lights and one seemed to zoom off. there was one set of dimmer green lights that looked like they were in a cirlcular formation flying away from the yellow lights the green light could have been a plane but i doubt it and as for the yellow lights deffinatly not a plane they were too random and fast to be anything man made. again i saw this on the 16th in the northeast sky kind of near the horizon from west lafayette on the purdue campus
