Date of Event: 1989-90 July midnight
Location of Event: Kentucky back on Kentucky river about 15 miles, and hour from Lexington.
Message: Friends and I witnessed an event during an evening on the Kentucky river where we were staying with friends in an old log cabin. The area had been settled during the early 1800’s by white people. There is a rich history of native American activity in the form of petraglyphs on the limestone bluffs above. At around mid-night, there was an electrical storm brewing.
At a certain point in the sky above the valley, and in the crotch of the valley, there appeared a rather large triangular silhouette, with three circular lights denoting the triangle one light was red, one green, and the third light—a kind of bluish white at the front or apex of the triangle. We were of course stunned and we watched as this object appeared to hover as flashes of lightning lit up the sky. After about five minutes, small points of light exited the larger craft, and began impossible maneuvers striking vectors at angles and then hovering. We noticed they were equipped with rotating lights on their perimeters.
The lights were also alternating between the same three colors. There must have been at least a dozen or so of these small objects in the sky at the same time. The larger triangle maintained a constant position while all these other small craft darted here and there. We all concurred with each other as to what we were seeing. We even woke the people we were visiting, and they said that they were used to this as it happened rather frequently, and they went off to bed.
As we continued to watch, the aerial maneuvers went on while the storm continued. At a given moment all the small craft moved up and back into the triangle, whereupon the large craft seemed to then move off in a direction and fade from view??? While we were watching, it seemed that the electrical storm and then the wind intensified and it rained. Since then, I have never seen anything as spectacular! I did however witness a series of vertical lights over the St.Croix river in the latter 1990’s in Minnesota…
