Location: Westfield (3 mi north of), IN
|4 bright white orbs in line formation near intersection of SR 38 & US 31 near Westfield, IN.
I was driving north on US 31 just south of the SR 38 & US 31 intersection at approx. 9:30 pm. The sky was clear.
In the northwest section of the sky, I saw four circular lights lined in a horizontal line from west to east. The orbs appeared to be bright whiteish yellow. The orbs were about 5 times larger and brighter than any star I have seen.
The orbs didn't move. Each orb was visible for about 30 seconds and then from east to west one-by-one the lights went out.
I have traveled that route daily for the past 12 years. I have never seen anything like it before or since. I enjoy amateur astronomy and have lived near Grissom AFRB for decades. I very am familiar with the nighttime appearance of stars, planets, meteorites, flares and aircraft. What I saw that night was unique to my experience.
