I and my framing crew witnessed this together.We are framing a house on the north side of Indy. Alot of air trafic is going on this day.Blimps ,old planes. etc.I saw a comm. jet and then a strange shape above it. No wings could be seen,but it was moving as fast as the jet in a cross pattern.It then seemed to tumble or twist as it moved apearing to change shapes.Also a faint circle appeared around it.Everyone there witnessed the same things.It moved northeast as fast as a jet.(oppisite jet stream)

The clouds had just cleared after a brief afternoon shower. Some clouds still remained but they were more of a high cirus type.The object was almost black in color, and at first seemed to be a large egg.I grew up around airplanes,my brother was an airforce pilot witch we would go see often as I was growing up. So I like to think of my self a semi pro spotter and identifer.Many military planes fly around this area so I show off and tell people what they are easily.I said look theres a Stealth,no what the hell is that!!! We all saw this shape then tumble or turn so that a single point became clear then gone ,then it was there then it wasnt.It moved to fast to be a balloon and it was heading into the jet stream and the wind. I KNOW WHAT I SAW BUT I DONT KNOW WHAT I SAW!!! This object was unidentifiable to anny of us.No one knew exactly what to do or say.The only thing that makes me doubt my siting is that it never changed course. Iwish it did then I would be sure.
