Location: Lafayette, IN
Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Two balls of light quickly appeared above our truck then dissapeared as quickly as they appeared!

My dad and I were just pulling out of our driveway on the way to the gas-station when I heard my dad announce "What the; did you see that?" As I looked there were two flashes of bright light--amber in color-- I then replied "Holy crap!!" then it was gone. Just two flashes of amber light at a very high altitude. The thing that makes this strange--to me and my father anyway--is that we live within 1 mile of an airport, and commonly see planes fly right over our house, and have grown used to it, but these happened one at a time. The only way I can explain is to draw a diagram: o o (FIRST ^ LIGHT) (SECOND ^ LIGHT) All within a couple of seconds. Nothing on this airport can go that fast or has that color of light. Like I said almost amber. Plus my dad can fly and work on planes. In fact just a couple of hours before I had saw a plane that had just taken off from the airport, and I happened to mention to my dad that it had two tails with a bar connecting them and he went into a speech about what this plane was (P-38) and how it was used in W.W.II. I called my best friend Nathan and he said that he thought that it was ball lightning, I don't agree. I have never believed in UFO's. Nor do I plan to. However I have always had an intrest in the supernatural and extraterrestrial. But I guess a skeptic can always turn to be a believer.
