Location: South Milford, IN
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
I witnessed a bright light hover for a minute, then shoot straight up into the sky and disappear.

I was driving Southbound SR 3 at approximately 6PM Tuesday at dusk when a bright light caught my attention to the left. It looked like a helicopter or plane headed my way but the more I looked it wasnt moving in any direction. SO i figured it was a helicopter hovering (we had a large ice storm with powerlines down) checking for damage or drugs.

However after a minute of sitting there the light starts to dim as if its turning then moves to the left a little bit then shoots straight up into the sky, through the clouds.

When it was going up it almost reminded me of when a space shuttle has taken off and is going into space( i lived in FL and have witnessed many launches) It had the speed of one, but no jet trail or anything. The only light i saw from it seemed to be a flame almost like an afterburner of a aircraft, but not blue, coming from it.

After it disappeared into the clouds, I didnt see it again.

I tried to be logical and rule out as many things as I could since i dont want to come on here sounding like some idiot who sees a plane or sattelite and thinks its a UFO.
