It was a summer night in Indiana when me and my friend ((name deleted)) was going over to a friend's house. We were going through a small, valley on an old country backroad when I had to use the bathroom real bad so we stopped. I stepped out of the passanger side of my friend's truck and he stepped out his to use the bathroom. That's when I noticed a bright light in the distance moving back and forth with sudden stops. I showed ((name deleted)) what I seen and we were both shocked. It was a bright light moving back and forth in the sky, pauseing then moving back in sudden burst's. The light was moving toward us so we watched it. It was low like a helicopter but no sound. It was huge. I am still not the same after what I saw. When it came over our heads me and ((name deleted)) was looking up. I saw a ship that was almost the size of a football field. It had 8 sides to it, and deep medal structure. The only sound it made was that of like a beutane lighter. There was a bright light in the front and a green and red light on its side and bottom. It moved over slowly so tell what that was? I was jumping up and down and asked ((name deleted)) if he was seeing this? He was dumbfounded. I asked after it passed what he saw and he said " Like a stop sign. " and I said "but stretched out a little. " We turned around to go follow it, but it was gone. Maybe it's goverment but maybe who know's. I am telling you mine and ((name deleted)) experience on that night. Never had another one like it.
