Lafayette, Indiana, USA; April 16, 2008

Name: Dude

Date: April 16, 2008

Location: Lafayette, Indiana? (This came in as a comment about a Lafayette sighting)

Message: 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.

    Message: Tonight My mom and I saw the same or a very similar set of lights. We were driving to our house when I saw a light that was slowly pulsating. Eventually it disappeared. Not long later I saw the light again but this time instead of pulsating it multiplied to five lights that were aligned to each other. Not long later another set of lights appeared not far from the first set of lights. Together they looked like a upside down V. Not long later both sets of lights disappeared.

    Earlier tonight there was a breaking news report talking of an explosion in Kokomo. The reporter was getting vague panicky answers from some official. The official spoke of emergency crews were on hold and told to remain at their stations. He never said why. I assumed this was run of the mill stuff till the reporter said the cause of the explosion was either a. an airplane or b. astronomical.
    I can’t locate any information about this event since.

    I live in the north end of Kokomo, after hearing the explosion I went outside and what I saw was something something falling from the sky on fire.The object fell into western Howard co. The explosion was louder then a sonic boom and it shook our homes. My first thought was that a plane had crashed. After a hour 1/2 search of Howard co., we found no evidence that anything had happened. After a little study I found out that a similar incident had happen the night before over Logansport, which is about 25 miles north of Kokomo. Once I found out that it had happen the night before, my thoughts turned to the heavens. The Lyrids meteor shower will be at it’s peak April 21-22. This means that we are now on the edge of this meteor shower. That is exactly what it look like in the sky, like pieces of something falling and burning as it feel from the sky. I saw no planes, in the area and it differently was not a flare. April is known for it’s meteor showers, so instead of hunting for government cover ups or space crafts, grab your binoculars and telescopes because it looks as if the Lyrids shower is going to be amazing this year.
