Time: Approx: 9:30 p.m. (dusk)
Hi Brian, my friend and I had a strange experience last night here in Indy, and when I ‘Googled’ it, I found your sight. We basically saw the same thing that your blog reported in Indy on July 3 and June 25 of 2010. This happened again last night, July 2, 2011.
While sitting out back on my deck at about 9:30 (dusk) on the extreme northwest side of the city, near Carmel and Zionsville, I noticed what looked like an amber light flying low and faster than a plane from north to south. It appeared to be a glowing oblong ball.
I pointed to it, and my friend and I watched it. It disappeared in the south western sky, but moments later, an identical object appeared at the same level, coming again from the north and moving south quite fast and low. Again, it disappeared in the south western sky. Finally, this happened again for the third time.
I’ve seen planes from the local small airport, but they don’t fly in the same vector or at the same height and they certainly don’t glow amber orange. There was no flicker, just a constant amber orange glowing light with an aura around it. There were no wings or tail visible, just a glowing amber oblong ball type shape.
I’ve seen weather balloons, planes, and helicopters, which we have here often, and this was nothing like that. My friend lived on a military base in Hawaii for years, so she is quite familiar with military aircraft. This did not appear to be a military aircraft at all.
Some popping firecrackers were going off from kids in the area, but it was still too light for fireworks, so it wasn’t related to fireworks either. And fireworks don’t move so deliberately in a low straight line across the pink evening sky. I am an attorney and my friend is the business manager for a dental practice.
We don’t really believe in UFOS and are totally rationally based. We kept looking for a reason for this, but nothing else makes sense. We’ll be watching again tonight, and will write if we see anything. This time, I plan to have a camera ready.
If you have any insight in to what we are seeing, please let us know. Thanks.
