Location: Hammond, IN
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 3 Minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Evening clear sky air ship with two bright lights turning on two more total four with red flasher on top.

While driving home my wife and I observed a very brightly lighted object in a clear late evening sky. It was in the East,later found to be moving West.From this distance we observed a small red flashing light on top.But the front was very brightly lighted with white lights.Our sighting begin about six city blocks away. By the time we were less then a block away we could tell the direction it was heading. It stood out to me because it was heading East to West in a flight corridore that flies jet planes North to South every hour into OHare and Midway at approx. 20 to 40 planes an hour.It appeared to my untrained eye to be maybe a mile in the sky.As it begin to fly over us as we stopped at a stop sign we observed two more same sized bright white lights come on making four lights straight across.The lights were so bright no shape of the ship could be observed. I looked straight up at it only to see the four bright lights.We proceeded to make a left turn at which time we stopped and saw nothing except a distant object going West miles in altitude and several miles away. If this was indeed the same vehicle it had increased altitude greatly and air speed in a very short time. Local papers carried nothing I could find regarding the story.
