Time of Sighting: 10 PM EDT
Date Sighting Reported: March 23, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 15 to 20 Seconds
Location of Sighting: Fort Wayne, Indiana
Latitude: 41.1 Degrees North
Longitude: 85.2 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Clear Skies. Stars Visible. (Per Witness Observation.)

Description: Listen to Recording of Witness Interview (MP3)
The witness called a few hours after his experience. He was quite excited by what he saw and said that he couldn't sleep because he felt "fearful." He and his girl friend were on there way to do some shopping and he at once noticed 5 very large disk shaped objects in a diagonal line moving slow northeastward in the western sky. He alerted his girl friend, but by the time she looked up the objects were gone. The witness said that the objects were equidistant apart, "stone white" in color, and emitted no sound. They were the size of a quarter held at arm's length. The witness alerted law enforcement, but no action was taken. The police officer who responded that the objects were probably "weather balloons."

Comments: We have received a few similar reports during the past year of disk shaped objects in a straight line. The line is observed to move at an angle instead of perpendicular to its axis. No sound is generally heard. This sighting is significant because of the apparent large size of the objects and the fact that the objects abruptly disappeared. The objects were not weather balloons as surmised by the police officer. Weather balloons would not be in flight at the time of the sighting and only one balloon is launched. (Five objects were seen.)
