Message: A FRIEND OF MINE AND I WERE FISHING FOR BROWNT TROUT AT NIGHT USING 12 VOLT FLOUNDER LIGHTS HOOKED TO THE SIDE OF MY 21 FT. WELLCRAFT BOAT. IT WAS ABOUT 2:30 AM AND THERE WERE LOTS OF LITTLE BLUE BACK HERRING AROUND THE LIGHTS. ALL OF A SUDDEN ALL THE BAIT SPOOKED AND MADE A COMMOTION AND WERE GONE. I WONDERED WHAT HAD SPOOKED ALL THE BAIT FROM AROUND THE BOAT. THE LIGHTS ABOUT 1-2 FEET UNDER THE WATER MADE KIND OF A HALO AROUND THE BOAT. IT MADE A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT.

THEN ALL OF A SUDDE4N THE HAIR ON MY NECK STOOD UP AND I GOT A FUNNY FEELING. I HEARD A HUMMING NOISE NOT VERY LOUD. THE KIND YOU HERE FROM HIGH POWERED POWER LINES. I DO NOT KNOW WHY I LOOKED UP. THERE IT WAS JUST ABOVE ME MAYBE 150-200 FT UP. THE FLYING SAUCER LOOKED ABOUT 300 FEET WIDE. IT BLOCKED OUT THE WHOLE SKY. IT WAS SUSPENDED AND ROTATING VERY SLOWLY. THERE WERE YELLOW AND RED LIGHTS ON THE BOTTOM EDGE OF THE SAUCER AND FAINT WHITE LIGHTS ON THE BOTTOM.

AFTER A LITTLE WHILE MAYBE 1-2 MINUTES THE SAUCER TURNED UP ON ITS SIDE AND I COULD SEE THE DOME IN THE MIDDLE. THERE WAS A SOFT LIGHT COMING FROM THER DOME. THE SAUCER LEFT AND WENT I DON’T KNOW THE DIRECTION BUT IT WAS TOWARD THE STARS IN THE DISTANT HORIZON. THERE WAS A BRILLIANT BRIGHT LIGHT ON THE HORIZON MAYBE AS BIG AS A 50 CENT PIECE IN THE DISTANT HORIZON A LONG WAYS FROM ME.

IT STAYED THERE FOR MAYBE A MINUTE OR SO AND THEN THE LIGHT WENT OUT AND THE SPACESHIP APPEARED OVER TOP OF ME AGAIN WITHOUT ANY NOISE. MY FRIEND WAS ASLEEP THE WHOLE TIME. AFTER THE SPACESHIP APPEARED THE SECOND TIME I GOT SUPER SCARED AND GOT ALL THE FISHING LINES IN AND WENT HOME. THERE ARE NO HOUSES ON THIS LAKE AND NO LIGHT EXCEPT NEAR THE POWERHOUSE INTAKES. I WAS NOT BUT MAYBE 300 YARDS FROM THE INTAKES IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT WHEN THE FLYING SAUCER APPEARED.

I TOLD MY WIFE AND NO ONE ELSE UNTIL MAY 2008 AND THIS REPORT. I JUST BLOCKED IT OUT. NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT IT WAS PRETTY COOL. EMAIL ME IF YOU WANT TO TALK MORE ABOUT IT. THANKS AND SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG. JIM PADGETT AGE 62

Message: 11:00pm July 6th 2008 in New Albany Indiana me and my kids along with my nephew and GF saw the similar thing. It all started in the same kind of fashion. I as well was being entertained with the neighbors fireworks, when all of the sudden what appeared to be a plane on fire was in the sky in front of me. the reason I say on fire was because of the unusual orange lights. Since I’ve never seen anything like it I immediately thought of fire. It appeared that the front right engine was on fire because of the concentration of light on that area.

The lights were very bright but thats when things got strange. One why would lights on a plane if not fire be pointing upword more than down. Two at that point it was moving so slowly just a straight path no funny movements but I’m still thinking plane on fire . Then I realized NO NOISE which would mean the plane should be coming down (no sound = no engine). But in fact it stayed at the same highth the whole time. I told my nephew to go get everybody else they had to see this.

The “plane” was directly above us at this time. still no noise. But maintained an altitude of what I assumed even using a single engine plane for reference of about 10-15,000ft. My GF was amaized at what she saw, normally being the skeptical one, so much so that she didn’t want it to scare the children so she took them inside. once the “plane” was past it just all of the sudden disappeared…

Now I know it was nothing that I have or will ever see again knowing that it wasn’t identifiable by me. After it disappeared I actually hopped on my Motorcycle and went to the Clark County Airport expecting to see some type of search plane which is normally done in a single engine plane crash but they acted like they saw nothing. At this point my mind even though I’m open to anything still didn’t or couldn’t wrap around seeing a UFO.

Location of Event: Goshen, IN

Message: The other day I noticed this movie, Phoenix Lights, at blockbuster and was compelled to watch it ASAP. It was strange- I rented it as soon as I got a chance, invited a friend and we watched it together. My friend kept laughing during the film, I don’t think he took it too seriously but at the same time he does believe in the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

That night there were July 4th fireworks (the date was July 6th though). Many people gathered around my subdivision, tons of cars, music, games… We sat on the grass right in front of the fireworks and watched them for about half an hour. As they ended, me and my boyfriend got up and started getting ready to leave.. Now, I asked him earlier that day to bring binoculars- after the movie, I felt I’d like to watch the starts later that night to see if I notice anything odd just for the fun of it… So people start trying to get out of the subdivision with all those cars.. everybody’s wrapping up their towels and folding their chairs, but I look up ..and right at the site where the fireworks were..there’s these 3 orange lights… Right away, they resembled the lights in the movie, but smaller. They were definitely bigger than any stars on the sky and bright orange. I later noticed a 4th one below between the trees.

I would assume that I am making this up, or even WANTING to see them after watching the Phoenix Lights movie… BUT my boyfriend standing next to me did not see the movie and he was shocked at the sight as well. He saw 5 lights however, I’m not sure where the 5th one was- probably among the other trees. In this way, maybe the figure was different.

But here is how it looked to me: the 4 lights were in a row pointing to to the upper right. I grabbed my binoculars and my boyfriend was trying to take a picture with his camera phone (which of course did not work well) and saw that they were simply oval orange (amber?) lights…just stationary in the dark sky, not moving a bit and not twinkling…No sound. I put my binoculars down and looked around at people- NOBODY paid ANY attention trying to get to their cars and go home… Some did pay attention but merely concluded that they were part of the fireworks.

Anyway, then it got a bit more odd. One of them moved (or several of them, or as my bf says, one disappeared and reappeared in a different spot) and in the end, the lights formed something like a wide triangle! Plus the forth lowest light was still there on the left (as if not part of the formation -in MY opinion_. My bf said it looked like a Z (look at the picture on the bottom).

Then, if you would view the triangle as a whole object…it started to TURN with it’s end (the 2nd light from the top) moving to the right. I could not believe it! Later, my boyfriend told me he didn’t see it turn at all… but, as he showed me the video he made with his phone (which is terrible quality, naturally) – I hear myself saying during the video: Oh my God, they are MOVING! It’s turning!” So while the turning took place, he was actually looking at the screen of his phone trying to catch the lights- that is why, in my opinion, he did not actually notice the turn as his attention was focused on the phone screen.

Then… just like the Phoenix Movie described… the lights started to disappear. One by one- top first, then the other end of the triangle (3rd from top) and then the middle light (and I watched this one carefully through my binoculars anticipating it to fade away just like in the movie…. And it did).

I don’t know when the lower light disappeared, I didn’t pay attention but it wasn’t there. I wouldn’t believe just my own eyes, especially after being influenced by the film… but my boyfriend was there and said it had NOTHING to do with the fireworks or planes… the lights just hanged in there, then changed positions very slowly and eventually disappeared one by one……………………….

Also, my other friend (who I watched the movie with) saw them- thought they were strange..only saw 2.. and decided it was somehow connected to the fireworks. Overall, I think the lights stayed there for about 3 minutes. (they disappeared one by one about 5-10 seconds apart). I later asked the older lady i live with, and she said she saw them too. They looked STRANGE to her but she associated them with the fireworks…

Either way, it was utterly strange and unexplainable. He can’t tell me what it was, he says- after watching the Phoenix lights- that it’s VERY similar to those and looked non-natural or human-made…

Date of Event: july 4 2008 at 10:30 ish??

Location of Event: July 4th 2008 in commerce township, mi (michigan) everyone on the lake saw it.

Message: it was moving slow red center and glowing orange around it — i ran to grab my binoculars and everyone with me said it started moving quick —

i saw it it looked more orange than anything and then is was so fast moving west that it looked white and just disappeared. I have no idea what it was but it was higher than a plane and it hovered for a few seconds and then vanished …

I am just bothered when i called the police i felt like an idiot asking if anyone called seeing that… she said no rudely and hung up. I have 15 people with me that saw it also …. just want to know what I saw.

Message: There was a group of 7 of us enjoying a fire in our back yard watching fire works across the lake when all of sudden we saw 5 distict red lights in the distant in the opposite direction of the fire works, that seem to be lingering just about the sky line there was a line of 3 on top & 2 on bottom at first we thought it was firework debree left over from what could of been firework’s but throughout the whole night there had been no fireworks from that direction…

then the red lights switch position’s the 2 on bottom were now on top and 3 from the top were on bottom 1 by 1 they each went lower into the tree line just like dropping out of the sky & then there was nothing…

shorty after 11pm we all of sudden saw 3 planes going to that direction including 1 helicopter that flew over us, & then there was nothing…as soon as i woke up dismorning immediatly i began searching the web & news because you cant tell me we were the only people to see that…it was clear as day!!!

We have video from our phones & you cannot see anything you just hear all of us trying to figure out what we were looking at??
