|Green light falling in distance
I was travelling northbound on In-5 (Indiana Highway 5) just entering the small town of Majenica, Indiana. (I know this because right after the sighting, the car a little ways in front of me applied its brakes; I thought they had seen it too, but it is more likely that they were slowing down to the 45 mph speed limit outside the town). What I saw was a light green light fall from the sky in the north, slightly to the east. At first I thought it must be a shooting/falling star, but it left no trail behind, like the shooting/falling stars that I have seen. It also looked nothing like any aircraft I have seen in the night sky, and I have seen many and pocess a decent knowledge of aeronatics. It fell from approximately 75 degrees above the horizon to 55 degrees above the horizon, and then it disappeared just as it appeared. I must note that either the object fell, or it flew across the sky, following the earths contour, much like a sattelite. It looked almost as if it could be falling (if in fact it were) toward the Huntington Resoviour, which is located 5-10 miles north and slightly east of where I was when I had the sighting. There is also an airport located right beside this resoviour, but I have never seen a beacon from the (or any other) airport that looked like this, nor as I have stated, an airplane.
When we visited the park by the dam that holds back the resivour 5 to 10 minutes later there were several flocks of geese (50 total geese perhaps) in the run off (spillway) of the dam. They seemed to be nervous and more vocal then normal. Not only did it seem slightly odd to see geese in the middle of the Indiana winter, but also I have visited this park at least once a month for the past 6 months and have never seen geese there before. My mind and imagination could have been running away with me on this issue of the geese, but I thought I would mention it.
Besides the other witness who was with me, 2 other people witnessed something in the sky around Huntington, Indiana earlier that night. One of them is a pilot. Although I know all of the witnesses well, we decieded that we would not talk about our sightings until we reported them properly. Hopefully they will post on here as well.
This is my first reported sighting, although I may have had a sighting in grade school. i do have an interest in the unexplained, although my strongly held religous views make this sighting disturbing.
