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 objectís 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

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
I find the witnessís
credibility high for two reasons:
is a trained, experienced observer, and has witnessed unidentified
flying objects on prior occasions.
