On Sunday October,17th my two sons and i were traveling to Wabash,IN. and witnessed what we believe to be two ufos. We were driving and had just turned off of state road 22 eastbound onto county road 1350 heading north when we immediately noticed an extremely bright white light hovering just a little to the right off the road about the height of what a small plane would fly. Ruling out that it was'nt a plane (since it was not moving) and seeing other aircraft in the vicinity, we kept our options open to see if it was moving towards us, it was not. As we continued to get closer we could most certainly tell that this was no aircraft with wings. This object appeared to be very large with a very bright intense white light that we could see some five miles away. Looking straight up in front of us wwithin a quarter of mile, it just vanished. The light had just completly turned itself off. We all three said practically at the same time, "hey where did it go?, it's gone" We were amazed at what had just happened. This is just the first one we saw. We continued to talk this over with each other for the next 7 to 10 miles i would guess approaching our turn onto the Miami-Wabash county line. When we were just about to turn right (this is in the Mississenewa lake area) we saw out in front of us a somewhat dim amberish orange light appear out of nowhere just about a half to a mile out in front of us. I stopped the van at our turn and we watched this light which seemed to be traveling at a super slow rate of speed for around 30 seconds. Once again, this light just semmed to turn itself off as quickly as it came on. That was it. I just have to say that i have seen unexplainable lights like this before when i would be driving alone over different periods of time but, never have i seen two different sightings on the same night within minutes of each other and having two other witnesses with me. These sighting occured south and north of Converse, Indiana on county road 1350. The first one in Howard County and the second just a bit north of the Wabash-Miami County line.
