Date: Sunday November 14, 2004
Time: Sighting 1, 7:10 PM
Time: Sighting 2, 12:00 Midnight
Location: Bloomington, Indiana
Witnesses: 1 (each sighting)

At 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 location.

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 year!

Sighting 2:

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.

Time: 7:10 PM local time
Location: Bloomington, Indiana
Witnesses: 1

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 the ground.


Sky conditions were clear, temperature was in the mid-forties.

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 object.

I find the witness’s credibility high for two reasons:

1)   She is a trained, experienced observer, and has witnessed unidentified flying objects on prior occasions.

2)   I trained her. (She happens to be one of my daughters.)

Class: CE1
Time: 10:15-10:30 PM
Location: Cave Road and Gifford Road, Bloomington, Indiana
Witnesses: 1 

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.”

Additional notes:

No additional 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 disturbances.

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 heading.

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

(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

allegedly 'ripped' with jet vapor trails.

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.

Multiple Ohio Sightings


 by Kenny Young

Filed: October 14, 2004


In the days after taking a number of unusual rumors and odd reports of strange activity from the northeastern Ohio area in the last week of September, UFO sighting reports have continued. While future updates are pending on a report that North Olmsted police officers have taken a sequence of unusual UFO photographs, a female talk-show radio host from Case Western Reserve University has reported having several photographs of a two tube-shaped or blimp-like objects seen in the Cleveland area surrounded by approaching jets. One of the objects reportedly 'vanished' while under observation.
