Reported: 5/26/2020 8:15:25 PM 20:15
Posted: 6/25/2020
Location: Indianapolis, IN
Shape: Flash
Duration: 90 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Bright green blinking light rapidly crossed the sky,

Four adults (2 with PhDs, one in a scientific field) simultaneously observed a rapidly moving green pulsing light moving across the sky almost directly overhead. The speed of the flashing green light was 4-5x faster than the commercial aircraft on far-approach to KIND (Indianapolis International Airport) flying directly overhead just minutes before.

After one adult in the group asked "what is that?" the blinking immediatly changed from once per second to once every three seconds, but the course (roughly southeast, across Franklin Township, Marion County) remained constant, as did speed. The object moved from Northwest to Southeast across the entire visible night sky in about 90 seconds.

It was far too bright to be a meteor or satellite (it was blinking brighter than the commercial aircraft at 2k-4k altitude), and was moving far too fast to be an aircraft.
