Woman witnesses triangular, arrowhead-shaped object over home.

March 14 2001 at 1:00 am ((name and personal data deleted)) Elizabethtown, KY This sighting was by my wife who is ((name deleted)) Please do not use her name, address, or phone number. I couldn't sleep so I was watching TV. We have sliding glass doors along side of the TV. I noticed something Bright through the sliding glass door. It was Reddish orange and very bright. The entire object was not this color just the edges all the way around. We live near the lake in Elizabethtown Ky. This lake had a problem and they drained most of the water out of it. The Dam is repaired now but the water level is not up to normal level yet. This Bright Light appeared to be over the lake near the dam. It stayed at that location for a long time with out moving. I thought it might be a Helicopter from Fort Knox. While this object was over the lake a Helicopter came by, I thought sure he would have seen the bright light from the object but he never changed his direction. She said she could hear the Helicopter but never heard any sound from the other object. We are located on the flight path for The Helicopters from the Louisville hospitals to Hardin Memorial Hospital our local hospital. She said aer a while the bright light started moving easterly which brought it closer to me. It was moving very slow over the tree tops and when it was located over the First Presbyterian Church, which is about a half block away I could see it very good. (It could have been farther away then half a block but she could not tell.) It was not a Helicopter and it was not an Airplane. I moved to a kitchen window where I could see better and it looked like a big arrow pointing up. She said it stayed in this position the entire time she seen it. It was lit up all the way around the outside edge and it was easy to see it's shape. Enclosed is a drawing of what it looked like. As it started getting out of my view, I went up stairs and watched until I could not see it any longer. We do not have any windows on the east side of our house. I watched it for a total of 45 minutes. She was unable to tell the size other than it looked about 8 to 10 feet tall. This is the position it stayed in all the time she seen it.
