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.
