Indianapolis International Airport is about 10.8 miles northwest of where this occurred.
The Greenwood Municipal Airport is a single runway, for light aircraft, so it's not like it would have multiple planes stacking up to land. It is
about 2.5 miles northeast of the location. In the picture, the runway is on the right, and the taxiway on the left. If I remember right, planes take
off and land facing south.
There is a National Guard Armory (Helicopter base, really) about 18 miles to the east by southeast. They fly Blackhawks in and out of there all the
Camp Atterbury is about 20 miles south by southeast from the location.
We know the cameraman was facing in a southerly direction, because you can see the reflection of the sunset on the houses.
The towers like the ones pictured do not have non-flashing lights. They have a bright white flashing light. Taller structures will sometimes have a
red flashing light, and sometimes a bright white flashing light.
The picture listed is wrong. They have the coords on Main Street. According to Microsoft Streets and Trips, it should be on 900 North. (County
Road). This means that the actual place reported is about 1/2 mile south of where the map shows.
It is NOT as close to the "municipal" airport as that picture makes it look.
Years and years ago, they used to fly A-10s out of Atterbury. When I was a kid, I used to see them all the time. Now, you only see a couple maybe
once or twice a year.
They aren't towers, I can say that much. My first guess would be planes reflecting the evening sunset. I saw a plane "turn into" an
orange-glowing cigar shaped UFO, then back again early one morning from the sunrise. However, the color is wrong in this particular film. But, the
way they were just there for a couple of seconds, is similar.
So, I don't know what it was, but I'm positive it wasn't communication towers. It's not apparent from the video (at least not to me) but it looks
like they don't really move. If anything, they look like lights for a Tennis Court, or Football field, but Greenwood High School is almost directly
east of there (If I remember correctly, and I'm not positive on that one). Whiteland High School would be somewhere in a southern direction from
that point. It would be about 2.5 to 3 miles from that point. I suppose someone could figure the height that the light would look to be at that
Just more information for all of you.
Edited to add: One more thing. Columbus is WAY south of Franklin. Taking back roads from where I live, I can be in Franklin or Greenwood in about
the same amount of time 15 minutes when I was younger, 20-25 minutes now.
It takes about 45 minutes on I-65 south to get to Columbus from
