I lived in Lafayette, IN for about 2.5 years.. During that time I along with maybe hundreds witnessed these bright amber orbs. You can read several
just look for Kokomo, Marion, Peru, Lafayette...A local sherrif said he called "Grissom AFB" and they were supposedly military flares. Here it is
years later and even though Grissom is all but abandoned reports continue. Not sure Grisson is used for much anymore.
My wife and I witnessed these on several occasions. Although reports vary somewhat. There is never any sound..never any recognizable aircraft
preceding the lights. So if they are tethered flares I don't know to what. They receded usually to N/NE direction times I saw them. Not usually
at high rate of speed. Sometimes they would just blink in/blink out a few seconds.. OThers may stay illuminated the whole viewing session. Then what
was strange they would blink back on but trailing location where they last illuminated from.
Yet another incident during broad daylight I saw what looked like a firework fall in silver streak..Then turn amber/orange. So far sounds like flare
maybe.. Then it sped off at high rate of speed.
On another occasion returning from hunting(Salamonie Resivoir) I saw a large black triangle maybe 100-200 ft off the ground near Peru, In. It was
almost dark - might have been stealth fighter..but still strange to be so low.
One well documented siting was I think Sherriff in Huntington, IN photographing
Didn't know if any of this had been discussed on ATS so thought I'd bring it up
