South Bend, Indiana Triangular In Shape With A Reddish Pinkish Hue
Date: June 19, 2007
Time: Approx: 10:28 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangular.
Full Description of event/sighting: Sky conditions were very good and I'm a backyard astronomer and we were just commenting how well even Saturn looked this evening with a 24mm eyepiece and Barlow lens. With seven stars of the dipper showing well and 8 stars in Scorpio showing at the horizon this is about as good as the sky can be from my back yard. My neighbor and I were facing north, northwest waiting to view the ISS and Shuttle when approximately at 10:28 pm a pinkish red object appeared at about 30 degrees in the sky. Traveling in a direction to south, southeast reaching a maximum elevation of 40 degrees and disappearing in the south, southwest at 30 degrees. Object seem to travel about the speed of a small air plane maybe 150 miles per hour. Object was triangular in shape reddish pinkish hue. There was no engine sound prop or jet sound. No blinking lights that would look like an airplane. As clear as the night sky was object seem to look somewhat opaque. My neighbor and I viewed this object for about 90 seconds flight time. Nine minutes later we stood and viewed the ISS with the Shuttle trailing behind it. We wonder just what this first object was that we saw.
Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
