Location of Sighting: Martinsville, Indiana
Date of Sighting: June 27, 2015
Time of Sighting: 9:30 PM EDT
Description: I am trying to determine what it is I may have seen in the early evening sky. I was outside my house on the phone and looked up and saw what appeared to be a small red dot in the sky. When I noticed it I thought to myself that is weird ( more of a feeling). Usually I wouldn’t think much of lights in the sky. As I focused my attention on it it began to move extremely fast. It would move on a horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines zipping at random in one of the directional paths I mentioned. In whatever direction it would move it would zip for a short distance then stop and zip in another direction and stop and kept repeating this pattern without actually having any pattern to its movement. Two houses down on the opposite side of the street they have been setting off fireworks and I kept telling myself maybe it was hot amber from something they shot off. However, due to the odd extremely fast movements this is not possible. We have planes that fly in the area so I am use to those and there is nothing that I have ever seen that can move that fast and change direction that quick. This is the second time (once when I was younger) in my life that I have ever seen anything that I cannot rationalize. I have included a clip of what is similiar to what I saw. I did not tape the video. It is just similar to what I saw. Also due to it being on video it is not as clear as what I saw, but gives basic idea.
If you have any idea what it is I may have witnessed I would really like to know.
P.S. do not tell me it is a weather balloon (LOL) or a Chinese lantern. (I have seen these and are familiar with them and they do not zip in random directions.)
Note: The witness provided the following link (YouTube) of a video of a similar object:
Note: There were rain showers in the area near the time of the sighting. There also had been earlier thunderstorms. However, it is doubtful that the red light was weather related.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
