Location: Huron, IN
Shape: Cigar
Duration:5 minutes
While traveling west on Ind st hwy 60, my ex-wife and I saw a cigar shaped object houvering over the intersection of u.s. hwy 50 and Ind hwy 60. We were about 1 mile east of it when I mentioned to her that the object wasn't moving. As we approached the intersection, it was still houvering about 100 yds off to our left side above a house. The object made no noise, and was dark metailic gray in color. It had several lights on it, but no windows. It was about the size of a small piper cub aircraft. It's shape was best described as a small boxcar type military plane. It begain to move sideways to the right as we pulled out onto hwy 50, and then disappeared over the hilltops. It did not make any noise, and moved very slowly.

As stated above, my ex=wife and I saw the object very clearly and drove ahead to my parents house which was about 2 miles from the sighting. We got a camera and went back, but never saw it again. We have told a few people the last few years, but felt that we would be ridiculed by our peers if we spoke of the event. I have been a police officer all of my life and my wife was a homemaker at the time.
