Duration:1 1/2 hours
|Carmel, Indiana on US 31. On several occasions have noticed a bright light to the south west. Thought it was venus, however, this evening there were no other stars visible. In addition, I did see a jet approaching Indianapolis from the east and it was clearly moving. The bright light (or lights) I saw disappeared after about an hour although another set of lights, directly above but much higher, were still visible. I'm not sure what the object(s) were because 1) they did not move; 2) the one set of lights disappeared; and 3) no other lights (e.g., stars, planets, etc.) were visible in the night sky other than the jet that I saw.
((NUFORC Note: Venus currently is quite prominent in the southwest sky at the time indicated. PD))
