Description: Tonight April 16 2008 at about 10:37 my brother, friend, and I witnessed something that was not man made. We live in Central Indiana in the Westfield area. I was looking North a little northwest and see these bright lights come into view. They were rotating in a counter clockwise direction. It wasn't fire. These were lights because you could see each light. We all kind of looked at it for about a minute in a half and then boom! It just took off and vanished. We called the local police dept and reported it, and then we called the local news. They had calls flooding in. So we watched the news and they reported that something shot out of this UFO and that a plane was down and that there was a huge explosion or a sonic boom. Later on at the end of the program they said that nothing was down and no planes were missing. I am just an average ordinary guy. I always look at things realistically and what I witnessed tonight might have changed the way I look at the sky. Whatever I was looking at was not no way no how anything man made. The area that the news reported it happened was over 20 miles away. This thing was HUGE cause we could see it perfectly. Anyway I don't know what reporting this event might do. More than likely nothing, but I know that it wasn't man made. I'm sure the government is already covering it up. They are already starting to say that it may have been military flares. No WAY!!! NO HOW! These were in a perfect line and rotating. The location of the sighting was Tipton County and state road 31 intersecting with country road 300. That is where they reported it happening. Something happened and I am now I think a believer. Thanks for taking the time to listen to what I think was something out of this world.

Comments: What these witnesses have reported and what the news media reported are certainly dichotomous. These witnesses say that they saw rotating lights followed by an explosion. The media (via police reports) explained the explosion as due to meteors. (Click here to read news story from WISH-TV - PDF.) Click here to read several reports from the area received by researcher Brian Vike. Given this witness report a meteor or military flares seems like quite an unlikely explanation. Anyone seeing these lights is urged to file a report. Please send any photos, videos, or sketches of your observations.
