Witnesses: 1 (each sighting)
first, I did not intend to make mention of
last evening's sighting outside my home. I reasoned that it was a
half-mile distant, and without the benefit of binoculars or a video
camera, it wasn't the quality of sighting I like to mention in
public. However, I received a report from another local researcher,
describing an object over his home, only a couple of miles from my
First, to describe
the object I saw:
At 7:10 PM last night,
I stepped onto the deck, and was scanning the tree line behind the
house. Movement caught my eye as a distant (1/2-1 mile) amber-colored light moved from west to east at
small aircraft speed (90-100 mph?). As the object passed above the
trees, it made alternating, abrupt changes
in altitude (by about fifty feet, or so) up and down.
Concerning this type of object movement, I am very aware of how the
eye can play tricks on the mind, even with an experienced observer
such as myself. For this reason, I began to focus on the shadow of a
taller tree in the tree line immediately below the object.
Still, the object continued to make sudden drops and increases in
altitude, while the tree line in the foreground remained constant.
In a few seconds, the object was no longer in view.
Another revealing aspect was that, as the object passed through the
area, I could hear a chorus of dogs barking with ever increasing
excitement, in their tone and volume.
This is the first time in quite a long while that I have been able
to spot one of these objects outside my home. Perhaps the “Scavenger” is back? Too bad for him; they closed the landfill this
I received the
following report from fellow researcher Robert Amick, who witnessed a
strange object over his house, after hearing dogs barking, nearby:
"The first thing was
that I heard a lot of dogs barking and thought that there might be
something in the sky causing the dogs to be disturbed, and then
realized that there were more dogs barking than we have in the
neighborhood. Going out on the back porch to listen it became
obvious that there were some raccoon hunters with a pack of hounds
in the ravine just to the west of the house.

Date: Saturday November
Time: 7:10 PM local time
Location: Bloomington, Indiana
The witness (name on
file) was southbound on north Walnut Street, approaching the
intersection of State Highway 45 (north end of town) when she
observed a large triangle-shaped object ahead and to her right. The
object was traveling southeast, toward the busy intersection ahead.
As the object approached north Walnut Street, the witness could see
two red lights, one on the tip of each trailing edge. She also
described the center of the craft as having an amber-colored light
or lights that constantly changed shape. As the object crossed the
intersection, the witness momentarily looked away to check the
traffic conditions. When she looked up again to observe the craft,
only a single red light was visible.
When the witness first
described the object, an image of the Goodyear blimp popped into my
mind, primarily because of the amber lighting that changed shapes.
However, she was insistent that the object was triangle-shaped, and
was not an advertising blimp. The witness indicated her confidence
in the object’s shape because its lighting partially illuminated the
underside. She further offered that the object was much too fast and
low to be a blimp, anyway.
From her conversation and
description of the sighting and my familiarity with the area, I
would estimate the object was flying approximately 120 feet above
Sky conditions were

All of Bloomington is
usually very busy on Saturday at this time. I agree with the witness
that it would be amazing if there were no other witnesses to the

credibility high for two reasons:

Location: Cave Road and
Gifford Road, Bloomington,
Witness (name on file)
was driving west on Cave Road, in western Monroe County, when he
observed a cloud bank, above and ahead of
him, “light up.” Immediately thereafter, an object with three
brilliant spotlight-like white lights descended into view. The
lights were shining down onto the ground, below and behind the
object, at a 45 degree angle. The lights emanating from the craft
illuminated its underside, revealing a rounded or disk shaped
structure. As the witness’s vehicle made the turn onto Gifford Road,
the object was continuing its descent, finally leveling out at tree
line height. The object came to a full
stop only twenty yards ahead of the witness’s vehicle, with the
three “spot lights” shining directly downward onto Gifford Road. The
object remained stationary for a few seconds, then “blinked off.”
navigational lights, beacon lights, or forward landing lights were
observed on the craft.
When asked about the size
of the object, the witness reported, simply, that it was “big!”
From inside his vehicle,
the witness could not hear any accompanying sounds from the object,
nor did he experience or observe any associated physical
There are five houses in
the immediate area where the object came to a full stop.
The area is rural, with
corn fields, caves, and woodlands.
Monroe County Airport is
only a couple of miles east of the sighting location, but is
situated at a right angle to the object’s south-to-northwest
Finally, I know the
witness personally, and rate his credibility as very high.
Do ghosts roam the historic streets of Spring
Mill State Park’s pioneer village?
From THE PERSIMMON TREE, Summer 2000 issue, Page 9

The Mitchell Tribune
(A division of Twenty Paces Publishing, Inc.)
As you walk the streets of the pioneer village at Spring Mill State
Park, you walk back into the past, into the time of your ancestors, and the
time of the early pioneer. Many stories are also told of “others” who walk
the streets, and they aren’t the type you want to meet in the dark, or for
that matter, in the daylight.
Another notorious resident of the Mitchell area was the outlaw Sam Bass. Bass was raised by members of the Sheeks
family of nearby Mitchell, and the log cabin they lived in is the first
cabin at the entrance of the village. Now used as,
and often called, the loom house, this was the original Sheeks home.
Ghosts are associated
with the Sheeks house in local lore. Like others in the park, the Sheeks
house was moved into the village during the restoration.
It originally stood outside the present park area, and it was there that the
infamous outlaw was reared by his relatives.

Unusual Situation Reported in Northern Ohio
by Kenny Young
Filed: October 2, 2004
Apparently on Wednesday
morning, September 22, numerous callers to Cleveland, Ohio radio station 1100
WTAM reported a rainbow-like aerial situation similar to a “Sundog.” The
situation complicates, however, as others begin describing unusual contrails,
jet scrambles and other military activity all across northern Ohio. One caller,
Amin, describes an unusual light seen the night before Sept. 22 while driving
home from Detroit around 1:00 a.m. while another caller, Kevin, claims the
similar sighting of a 'bluish green light' around 10:35 p.m. on Route 8 near the
Stow, Ohio area (north of Akron). At daybreak the morning of Sept. 22,
northeastern Ohio skies were

One caller, Don, is a truck
driver with a route between Cleveland and Youngstown, and alleges that his GPS
(Global Positioning System) that pinpoints his mapping location on a laptop
computer began malfunctioning between 8 and 9:00 a.m., although working
flawlessly beforehand. Stranger still, another caller named Dave claimed that
Route 12, a south/north road out of Fostoria, Ohio, was blocked by "tons" of
army trucks and traffic was being diverted.
