Location of Sighting: Carlisle, Indiana (See Map)
Latitude: 38.96 Degrees North
Longitude: 87.4 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Few Clouds Were Observed at 800 Feet. Skies Were Overcast With Cloud Bases at 2,100 Feet. Visibility Was 5 Miles in Fog. Winds Were From the South-Southeast at 5 MPH. (Observation From Terre Haute, Indiana).

Description (In Witness's Own Words): My sighting was in Carlisle, Iindiana zip code 47838 in Sullivan County in the country. Some county roads do not have numbers but are still maintained by the county. The date of my sighting was Dec. 21, 2007. I used a camera phone: Verizon LG phone. I don't know the pixel density. I saw a redish orange round light moving in a southwest direction. No sounds that I could hear over the sound of my jeep engine were emitted. The light was very quick. I could see it long enough to get a picture, then it was gone. The picture on the right was about 13 minutes later and lasted about 30 seconds.

Investigator's Notes: The cell phone camera used had a low pixel density. This hampers revelation of any further information through photo blowup. Increasing lighting and contrast did not reveal any new information. The streaking in the photo to the left could either be the movement of the light or camera movement. Given that the witness said that the light was moving rapidly would suggest that the streaking is due to the movement of the light. In the second photo above (taken 13 minutes later) the orange light does not show any streaking. Other lights also appear in this photo. I don't know the identity of the orange light. Given the description it was not likely a meteor or space debris because no trail was observed. The photos also do not show any trail. The weather conditions at the time of the photos suggest that the light was probably close to the observer and at a low altitude.
