Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 min.
Multiple hovering orange sphere/orbs in a broken triangle shape over Hwy. 30

While traveling E. BOUND ON US30 through Schererville and entering Merrillville. I observed at least 4 maybe 5 orange spheres/orbs which seemed to just hover with no sound over the highway, they were under 400 ft. approx.

These lights were spread out into a broken triangle and seemed to just appear or catch my eye. I sensed a very sureal feeling and was totally shocked and amazed. My mind was racing with questions.

With narrow sholders on the road and heavy traffic I did not stop but slowed down. One light was larger (sphere) and the others seemed more like orbs.

It was cloudy and I could not discern if they were connected.

About one quarter of a mile I turned off Hwy. 30 to enter Crown Point and looking back to my right I could still see one orange orb, lighting up the clouds.

((NUFORC Note: For some reason, witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD))
