Shape: Chevron
Duration:5-10 seconds
I observed a large boomerang shaped object and a smaller object that I am sure was associated the the first. The event was at right about sunset on 9-21-99.

On Tuesday evening 9-21-99,at about 6:45 PM, I was walking through the Country Club apartment complex on the South side of Indianapolis near S. Madison Ave. and E. Troy Ave.. I was facing West just at sunset when I observed what I at first thought was a hawk flying in the West / Southwestern sky. As it moved, it soon became apparent that it was actually a large chevron shape. The object pivoted on its left wing and leveled off It then either shot off faster than my eyes could follow it or it became invisible. I would estimate the size of the craft at between 100 to 150 feet across at about a mile distance; at an altitude of approximately 2,000 - 3,000 feet. It appeared to be a solid dark grey or black color. Just as soon as the craft disappeared from my sight, a second object shot just below the point where I had seen the first. It moved so quickly that all I could perceive was a solid black streak. It reminded me of what a hockey puck might look like after being hit as seen at the level of the ice. I couldn't detect any sound or unusual lighting.
