Lafayette, Indiana Lights Jets Another Eye Witness To UFO Event

Date: April 16, 2008
Time: 10:30 p.m.

Hello, I typed in "Kokomo Indiana UFO" into Google and came across your site and a description of a UFO that I also saw. I believe it was April 16, at 10:30 p.m. one day before the recent earthquake in Indiana and the surrounding area.

I am a recent graduate of Purdue University and I live in Lafayette, Indiana. What I saw took place at about 10:30 p.m. I was standing on my balcony having a cigarette and about ready to go back inside. However, I noticed a light in the Eastern sky. I assumed it was an airplane that was about to land at the Purdue Airport. I decided to watch the "airplane" fly over me before I went inside. But, instead, I saw this:

The appearance of the light was similar to an orange or yellow street light and it was bright enough that I assumed that the "airplane" was due to fly over me within a matter of minutes. But as I waited, the light did not move. So I waited longer. Then, it disappeared for a brief moment and then reappeared as five or seven similar lights forming a circle. As I watched, the lights formed the shape of a line. The line was again about five or seven lights and it was horizontal.

Then from that line, another line of lights seemed to project from the horizontal line toward a vertical position. During this time, the entire array of lights seemed to move slightly North. The way the second line projected from the first was similar to the way a movie click board opens. Then, those lines seemed to move independent of each other and began moving around each other, either still as lines or independently. Finally, after witnessing this, which I would say took place for about 15 seconds, I ran inside to get my roommate to see it, but when we returned it was gone.

The sky that night was very clear and the moon was out. I also saw a few planes or jets flying all around the sky right after this event and they left many contrails. It has been something that has stayed in my mind ever since I saw it, so I decided to see if anything was on the internet about it. I ran into two other kids a week later who said they also saw it. They told me that many people in Kokomo saw this, therefore I assume that what I saw in Lafayette was the same object that was seen in Kokomo. I hope this helps you in anyway.

My name is (removed) and I live in downtown Lafayette, Indiana. Please send me an email to: (Email removed) if you need to or if there is any other information concerning this sighting. Thank you.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
